Restaurant Noise Review: Gocciolina, Durham, NC

Gocciolina – Durham, NC – Thursday, March 26, 2015, 7pm

Decibel Reading:  78 dB     Sound Equivalent:  Washing Machine

Conversation:  Raised voices necessary

Rating:  speaker-red     speaker-red     speaker-red

Comments:  As a group of six, we found it difficult to have a conversation that included all of Gocciolinaus.  We were seated at a large table near the food order area which we found distracting and noisy.  Lots of activity surrounding our table made it difficult to maintain a continuous conversation between us for a group celebration.  Tables were spaced close together which also contributed to the noise intrusion.  Frequent repetitions were necessary and frustrating as we wanted all to celebrate and understand each other!  Although we enjoyed the food, perhaps an earlier time would have been best to dine together and catch up.
