Stagioni Restaurant Review

: Stagioni, which means "seasons" in Italian, occupies the villa-like historic Reynolds-Gourmajenko House. Its simply decorated interior relies on wood-lined ceilings, red window treatments and warm lighting to create a romantic environment. Some accents nod to the original owner, Mrs. Blanche Reynolds Gourmajenko, such as a large reprint of a family wedding photo on the main dining room ceiling, adding to the place’s "Italian family" atmosphere. Chef Drew Dodd keeps the kitchen in its classic Italian mode. Handmade pastas, pizzas and other favorites command repeat encounters. Start with small bites from the snacks menu, like house-made ricotta and truffled eggs, or order from the many interesting primi including ricotta gnudi and spaghetti with littleneck clams in a white wine, garlic and chili sauce. Seasonal fresh fish choices are among the secondi. For dessert, try the vanilla panna cotta or the refreshing choice of three gelati. The wine list’s mostly Italian selections share billing with a few California labels, and the beer lineup is thoughtfully constructed as well, with Italian, other European and North Carolina and additional American craft brews all represented.
