Description: Ask any Italian-American what ‘gravy’ is, and they'll tell you it's the pasta sauce that their mothers and grandmothers cooked fresh every night. At Gravy Restaurant we take the same care, preparing our signature sauce every day using select tomatoes and locally grown herbs. The heart and soul poured into the preparation of traditional Italian-American dishes pairs with inspired modern twists and a focus on seasonal ingredients to define Gravy’s unique approach to this classic cuisine.

“We were there for a birthday celebtation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We invited my wife's cousin and his wife. Food was good and we all had a nice evening. I have to agree with one review is that it is loud. We were new to the area, so we have many new options to choose from, but we would likely return to Gravy at sometime in the future.

“Little bit of Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

What I liked most about this restaurant is that their food was not only outstanding, but not pretentious! A lot of restaurant try to overwhelm diners with too much "fancy" stuff, but there was just the right amount of entrees on the menu and it was authentic Italian! We stayed in Raleigh, NC to be with our daughter for the 70.3 Ironman Competition. We needed to change our reservations and the restaurant staff were only too happy to accommodate. I will visit this restaurant again the next time we go to Raleigh!

“good meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

I thought the meal was good not outstanding just good. The only complaint I would have is the noise it is very loud and that maybe the building but it was hard to even hear across the table.

“Amazing Italian! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Came here to carb up for the rock n roll in April, and it was the perfect place! We sat outside, it was a great view and patio area. The risotto balls were a great appetizer and my chicken cannelloni was outstanding. It you want Italian, go to gravy!!

“Comfortable Neighborhood Gourmet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Since moving to Raleigh we've eaten here frequently and Gravy never disappoints. The Ricotta Gnudi is an amazing dish - the pillowy dumplings change seasonally - butternut squash and sage in the winter, peas in the spring. You can't really go wrong with any of the dishes...fried oysters have been wonderful on a bed of greens and the recently-added beet salad is refreshing. Service is uniformly friendly and professional.
