Actually one chain I like is the Brio at Piedmont Town center.

If you are willing to drive to Salisbury there is La Cava. Located in an old church, excellant food. There is Pinnochio's in Spencer, chef is from Italy, and if it's just pizza, there is the Salty Caper in Salisbury (operated by La Cavas's owners' son)

We recently dined at 'Aria Tuscon grill' in uptown. The food was wonderful, though a wee bit pricey. The bruschetta bread was the best I have eaten in a long time.
