Dine on Fusion Italian at Cucciolo Osteria

 .  Today, 5:00p - 10:00p

Tucked away in West Village, Cucciolo Osteria is serving up simple, well executed Italian, influenced by owners Jimmy and Julian Kim's Korean roots.

Cucciolo Osteria quietly opened this weekend in West Village. Here's what you need to know:

- After a friends and family weekend, Cucciolo Osteria is now accepting reservations at 601 W Main Street, near West End Wine Bar.

- They've taken over a formerly vacant 2,500-square-foot suite which seats 60, plus a marble bar seating another 15+. 

- They open daily (with the exception of Tuesday) for dinner at 5:00 PM, and close at 10:00 PM M-Th, 11:00 PM Fri/Sat, and 9:00 PM on Sunday.  

- The focus is on Roman cooking, with little red sauce, and the Tajarin pasta is made in-house. The price-point is approachable, with most pasta dishes running in the low teens.

- The beef carpaccio with black truffles (pictured above) is particularly standout and photo-worthy.

- The Cucciolo Osteria (which means "baby restaurant" in Italian) concept comes from owners and cousins Jimmy and Julian Kim, in memory of their childhood comfort food. This is the fifth Cucciolo. The first opened in Seoul, South Korea with only 20 seats.

This, my friends, is how to perfectly cook #pasta! It was a special treat to #tastetest a few menu items from the upcoming #italianrestaurant @cucciolodurham tonight! They are opening (soon) in a little spot in the back at 601 W. Main St. Each #pasta dish was cooked perfectly al dente; the sauces they make in house (like black truffle!) were fab. Can't wait to try more of the menu soon. . . #bitesofbullcity #durham #durhamnc #bullcity #durm #downtowndurham #foodie #foodies #foodienews #yummy #foodblogger #foodblog #cucciolodurham #comingsoon #sneakpeek #italianfood #eatlocal
