What once was a wonderful restaurant back when the first Cinelli's opened in Durham years ago is now a sad story....

There is not one hint of authentic italian taste to the food rather, it reminded me of high school cafeteria quality.

We were visiting North Hills this weekend and felt like having Italian for dinner. We had tickets for the NH theatre, so rather than go elsewhere, we decided to try Cinelli's. We had not visited Cinelli's before. I have to say that their

I had heard good things about this place and had some time to spare, so I ventured in about 4:30 on Saturday afternoon. The seating process seemed to be a bit difficult as the person telling the hostess where to seat me had to repeat her

I was really impressed, not only with the food, but with the attentive service we recieved. I as a parent, took myself and my children along with thirteen other young men to cinellis for lunch. The tables were set up when we got there and the service was great. The boys ordered pizza, while i ordered salmon bur blanc, both great. The attention to detail was impecable, salmon fresh and perfectly cooked. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Pros: best pizza and pasta in town

My husband and boys went in after our basketball game and boys had pizza and loved it. My husband had chicken scrapiello and said it was the best chicken dish he has ever had maybe better than mine? and i had pollo christina was wonderful. The waitress Addylean said they just got a new chef and she talked with my boys, and made us feel like part of the family. Great place to take kids or go on a date.

I have been a customer of Cinelli's at North Hills for a few years now, and have always enjoyed the quaint atmosphere, good food and friendly service. Recently I have noticed some positive changes in the food presentation and flavor! The pizza is as good as ever, but don't forget to try some of the pasta and salad dishes that seem to have a new flare. My taste buds have never been so happy.

Cinelli's should stick with the classics and forgo trying innovative pizza ideas. The Mexican Pizza was basically a hamburger pizza without any kind of sauce for the base, cheese, and raw tomatoes and lettuce. They don't use enough taco seasoning so it is very bland. I don't think there was any on mine. Otherwise the pizzas are very good and I will definitely go back for regular pizzas. Oh, and the high school staff likes to shout across the room letting the other know what kind of tip they received from departed diners.

Great family restaurant with delicious pizza. The bread is a hit for our family as well. Prices are reasonably and it is conveniently located in North Hills.

Living near North Hills, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from, but I always enjoy eating at Cinelli's Pizza. The food is good, the staff is pleasant and the atmosphere is very nice. I highly recommend the pizza - it is in the name after all.

Went here for lunch and had the basil tomato pizza- can't remember the name. Pizza was good but more importantly I had their tiramisu for dessert. OMG can't wait to go back!

We just moved to Raleigh from Apex, where we had several great pizza/Italian takeout places, including NY Pizza, Johnny's, and Dominic's. We're looking for a good pizza place here, and we'd heard of Assagio's and Cinelli's. Since Cinelli's was slightly cheaper than Assagio's, we thought we'd give it a try. Especially since they boast "real New York pizza." Also, reviewers seem to like it so much. Well, we ordered an "XL pizza," garlic knots, and fries. Their idea of an XL pizza is a joke. It wasn't even an 18" pizza, which tells me that they're trying to charge the most amount of money for the least amount of cost to them. The pizza was doughy and undercooked. Furthermore, the crust was thick like many of these clown joints down here, such as Papa John's. The garlic knots were totally stale, undercooked, with barely any garlic at all. I ate one bite of one and threw the rest away. The fries was the only satisfactory item, but it's difficult to screw up pre-packaged fries. I definitely do not recommend this place. Onwards to Assagio's...

I went to Cinelli's on a Monday night with my girlfriend and spent 15 minutes driving around North Hills mall to find a parking spot. I finally got to Cinelli's and was very impressed by the whole decor and the real tasting Italian food. I suggest the tortellini carbonara or the great tasting pizza!

Have been in here a few times and have loved the food....the service is average and the actual restaurant itself is nice, nothing too fancy. If you appreciate good italian food though I would recommend this place, or maybe getting take-out!

After waiting over 20 minutes, therefore being late to my movie, and not even receiving my food ever. I must give Cinelli's at North Hills in Raleigh NC an F for service. May go Back, However doubtful.

Perfect for before or after the movies. Service was great, fast pase kept them on their toes, but weren't pushy. Would highly recomend and will be a new regular.

I think judging by the atmosphere and menu that I could have enjoyed dining at Cinelli's but after hearing some of the badmouthing of other restaurants that went on in there I realized that this was not a place to which I cared to spend my money. It is truely a shame that the common respect that so many people in the same business share together is not felt or exhibited by the owner(s) of Cinelli's. Perhaps they should learn from the restaurants they badmouth and they would have lines at their door as well.

If you want to get "Americanized Italian" go to Cinellis. It's your typical pizza place with calzone, subs, etc.. The food is OK, but there is nothing unusual about the menu. It you want authenticity in your Italian, and something unique that you won't find at any neighborhood pizza place, I recommend going across the street to Vivace. There you'll find classy Italian that is similar to what you would find throughout the regions of Italy. If you want New York Italian, Cinellis may be a good choice for you.

Suprised
I was completely blown away from the quality of food that this litlle pizza place put out. Went with the family, friendly service, ordered grandma pizza for wife and kids, the best pizza Ive ever eaten, not this gourmet pizza like mellow mushroom, or lillys, just real pizza with just sauce and cheese. I also ordered fried calamari and baked clams as appetizer, better than I ever received in any restaurant, ordered cavatelli romano, broccoli rabe was outstanding, Its definately my new favorite place to go,
