Stagioni Ratings and Reviews

We went for a late valentines dinner. We started with mussels and the roasted beet salad which were both incredible and easy to share. Everything was fresh, seasonal, and local and you could really tell in the flavor profile of each dish and cocktail. I am not a huge pasta fan, but the gnocchi and cavatelli changed my mind. Beautiful atmosphere and decor, but it was a little loud for me at the beginning of our dinner. Overall, it was a great experience and we will definitely be back.

Having read the reviews and talked with a friend who had been there, my wife and I were looking forward to a very nice dinner. Unfortunately, it was just "so so". We arrived early evening as we had theater tickets after dinner and there very few people in the restaurant yet the hostess sat us at what was usually a "4 top table" which had been separated to make into a pair of 2 tops and was right next to another couple. We could "reach out and touch" them without any trouble. Most other tables were empty.
I had the NC Trout and it was over cooked and very dry. My wife had the gnocchi and it two was "ok". My wife thought Maggiano's is better and that is a chain.
Service was good. Waiter was attentive and helpful. Highlight of the night.

We sat at kitchen side bar during a busy Thursday evening. The chef was completely organized and clearly in charge,but still had time to talk with us and answer a few questions. His team were all professionals working smoothly together who turned out beautifully plated meals in rapid succession. The food was spot on. Highly recommend!

The food was excellent... I've never even smelled collard greens before without the gag reflex kicking in, but they were wonderful here. The mussels were good (but Good Food does them better), pork was well cooked, the potato gnocchi nearly melted, and the polenta was worth admission on its own. Loved the strange flavors of gelati (olive oil was unexpectedly better than poppy seed), and the cheese plate - while not to my taste - was well portioned and presented. I brought my own bottle of wine, and our server happily decanted it while we tried the cocktails, (Bella Rossa > than The Alternative) and the $25 corkage fee was, while a little high, perfectly acceptable thanks to her. I felt like, in the end, I had received far more value for my money than I had anticipated and enjoyed nearly everything I ate. (Bringing the wine bottle likely helped...)
Prior to arriving I was more excited about the location than the food... this was a little bit of a letdown as it was not as secluded as I had expected from the website description. It's still a very nice place - just not quite what I was expecting. The dining room has an open layout and is a little bit loud, but not nearly as bad as it could be without the sound-dampers on the ceiling. I was sitting in the seat nearest the kitchen, which detracted from the intended ambiance a bit. The increased foot-traffic, slightly elevated noise level, and the fluorescent lighting behind me all served to lessen the experience, if only slightly. Recommend requesting a table on the side walls or toward the center of the dining room for a better experience.
Very good overall... not necessarily somewhere I will make an explicit effort to visit again, but it will definitely remain on my list of restaurants to consider for out-of-town visitors or special occasions.
As an aside, if you Uber here, check the pickup location as it appears that the app directs drivers to the back parking lot near RuRu's Tacos instead of the front courtyard)

Service is an important part of any restaurant experience. My experience at Stagioni's left me underwhelmed. The food was fine but not outstanding. Maybe it was the dishes the three of us chose. But the service was subpar. Several times we had to get the waitress's attention just to have our needs met - including to order after being seated 15 minutes. Not what i expect when I am dining out.

As an Italian foodie I had been wanting to try this restaurant quite a while and overall was a bit underwhelmed. If there is no parking in the front you have to figure out where to park without getting towed :). Seated at a small 2 person table with not enough room on the table for wine, water and food and very tight location with everyone annoyingly getting bumped into. Not a great carryover from Barringtons. Actually watched a nearby table with the same issues get their full wine glasses knocked off of their table trying to get their food served. Service was great and food was good except the chicken cacciatore was entirely too salty. Would not return unless I was able to sit at a larger table out of the main traffic flow. Hint - I know tables are $ but take a couple out so people are not sitting in each other's lap.

We have been to Stagioni many times since it opened and we have not been disappointed. This time we went with visiting family. I made our reservation more than a week ahead. I was able to add an additional person that day without hesitation. We got a great table in front of the open kitchen.
The food, wine and service were excellent, and everyone was very happy. The PEI mussels and the burrata arancini were delicious. Everyone loved their main courses. I had the spaghetti de Pepe without guanciale since I don't eat meat although I eat seafood. Anyway it came hit and delicious. Our waiter was awesome. They gave us enough time to enjoy our meal. I hate being rushed. A wonderful evening.

This is the second time we have had the same server and both times he seemed indifferent about waiting on us. He did not check in with us often enough and seems distant and unfriendly. I like to have servers who are excited about the drinks and food but when questioned, he seemed to be indifferent about all of the choices.

A regular spot for us - rarely disappoints. Love the mix of folks patronizing this always energetic place . Jet lagged, we couldn't decide what we wanted. Good suggestions from our waiter, kale salad particularly good. We'll be back...

Excellent experience every time. Great food, service and atmosphere. Sit at the bar and watch the awesome kitchen staff at work. They are truly amazing to watch and interact with while you enjoy the food! Highly recommend Stagoni!!

Great ambiance, very quaint & cozy. Enjoyed my meal and the wine recommended. Our server was very serious, kind felt like we would get in trouble for not following the rules when ordering. Would have liked a little more of friendly, approachable attitude. Dinner after a long day at the office should be relaxing, not stressful.

I've eaten here twice recently. The bartender actually knew how to make a delicious Singapore Sling. Cheeses on cheese/meat board were awesome. The meatball app is scrumptious as were the mussels. I've had the bison pasta dishe both times for the main. Very popular place. Get a reservation.

We chose Stagioni as a joint Christmas present with my sister and brother in law. I had been once before and it was excellent then, as was this visit. The food is always on point and the service as well. Our server recommended a fantastic mid-priced wine that paired really well with the food. Overall the meal was phenomenal, my only complaint would be the noise level (it was loud with a packed house). Will definitely be back again.
