Mothers & Sons Trattoria
Partners Matt Kelly and Josh “Skinny” DeCarolis are proud to offer Mothers & Sons, a trattoria in downtown Durham featuring regional Italian food with seasonal sensibility. DeCarolis introduces the first restaurant in the South to focus on fatta a mano—handmade pasta.
The name, Mother & Sons, is derived from the closeness DeCarolis experienced amongst Italian families such as his own–especially between mothers and sons-often centered around cooking traditions and the dinner table. We look forward to welcoming you to our table.
Mothers & Sons recently received 4 out of 5 stars by N&O’s Greg Cox, citing that “Matt Kelly chose to partner with DeCarolis speaks volumes about his respect for the young chef’s skills, most recently demonstrated as chef de cuisine at Mateo.”
