C & H Cafeteria

 5 star(s)  (06/21/2011)
“I have made C&H my number one place to eat for lunch. I can get a home cooked meal for the same price I would pay for a fast food meal. I usually pay around $5.00 a meal, less if I want the chicken tender salad or a veggie plate (less than $4.00). I have also cut the cost of catering for my compa... ”

The Pizzeria

“This place is tucked away in the warehouse district and easily missed if you are not looking for it carefully. However once you find it you will be in for a treat to one of the best Italian restaurants in the RTP. The ambiance is nice both inside and outside while the servers are attentive and frien... ”

The Pizzeria

 4 star(s)  (10/25/2010)
“I came here with 15 people, of which 3 were kids (aged 2-8). We ate outdoors and it was a great location. I tried the gnocchi and that was great. It was a good place for family but I can imagine it being a great place for a date as well (and not too hard on the wallet). The other dishes people seem... ”

“I had the Penne Rustico at Cinelli's and the sauce was delicious! Great restaurant.”

The Pizzeria

 4 star(s)  (10/25/2010)
“Cinelli's new Morgan St. location is a definite upgrade from the previous Broad St. location. The restaurant is very attractive, both inside and out. The inside of the restaurant has the flair of urban sophistication without being pretentious. There also is seating outside in an enclosed courtyard. ... ”

J & J Fish and Chicken

 5 star(s)  (10/07/2010)
“It's not easy to find a really good Mom 'n Pop shop in the Triangle Area. JJFish and Chicken serves generous portions of homemade food for a fair price. The fish is awesome and the chicken nuggents/tenders are homemade (not parts)”

P.F. Chang's China Bistro

 4 star(s)  (09/10/2010)
“What can I say... it's PF Chang's! Service was excellent even though we showed up half hour before closing. Their food was good as usual. I had the short ribs for appetizers which was excellent! The seabass was as tender as ever and their desserts was awesome.”
