While I am spoiled through my upbringing I try not to be overly critical in these Italian type kitchens. This however was just barely average. From the moment the hostess, whom seem to have less than an enthusiastic approach to her job, sat us down we were still under the ether of excitement in trying a new to us Italian... More

We were seated promptly, had a very polite server short with blonde hair, either Ashley or Amber. Service was great she kept the drinks coming right on time. The food was good quality/quantity and filled us up for a night on the town.

The restaurant was friendly. The service and food were excellent. The menu had a lot of items to choose from, and the prices were very reasonable. I will go back to this restaurant when we visit Charleston again.

We have been by here many times and decided to try it. The calamari could have been cooked a bit more. Our sandwiches were good and the portions generous. The service was fine. With so many places to eat in Charleston, I doubt we will go back.

We had to ask for everything - water, bread etc...The calzone's must be frozen because the meat and dough was cold and it was raw. The marinara sauce was bland. Overall dissappointment

We stopped in at lunchtime. Very nice staff and very attentive. The food was very good. Try the Fried Artichoke Hearts! The Piccata I had was awesome!
