First, my husband and I were greeted by the most unfriendly hostess. She messed up our reservation, made us wait out in the rain and then forgot about us. We received no apology from her only angry words. Second, this place is noisy. Third, the...More

Best Italian in Charleston hands down. Can’t go wrong with any of their pastas or entrees. Love this cozy neighborhood spot and can’t wait to return for my next special occasion! Definitely recommend the cauliflower antipasta as well as the ricotta gnudi!

The place is small and very noisy, and seated in front of the kitchen didn’t help. There was no ambience or comfort, important for a Saturday nite dinner. But, the food itself is second rate Italian. Cheeseboard was skimpy and didn’t have enough toasts. Octopus...More
