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.
