We had a large group of 10 who arrived one rainy night without a reservation! They quickly set up tables for us without any problem and just a short wait. Everyone loved their meal, and we all had a variety of items from the menu. We even went back several days later and asked if we could buy a gallon... More

I enjoyed the food and the service at Bocci's! The portions were large and the price was not sky high!

This was one of our favorite places to eat when visiting the city. After our recent experience with seating hostess and management, we will not be returning. Upon arriving we were greeted after a few minutes of hostesses trying to figure out computer. We were asked if we had a reservation and we did not. The restaurant was not busy... More

This restaurant is in a good downtown location and gives the appearance of serving authentic quality Italian dishes. We were there for the Cooper Bridge run and wanted good pasta dishes before the race. The spaghetti was drenched in butter, enough to make one sick. The baked ziti dish was a googy blend of several cheezes mixed with a red... More

Ordered Togo. I could not have made this better myself! Absolutely perfect. Really like the renovated front room. The little tables up front give the place a bistro feel. Can't wait to go back.

We visit Charleston ever so often, but usually go to Seafood or Low Country Restaurants. Saw this one on the corner as we passed and decided to give it a try. IT WAS wonderful. Remember, sometimes things aren't always perfect, but with a gracious owner/host that want everything to be perfect for you, just let them know. They aim to... More

What was nice about this place besides the quality of food and service is that it is in the middle of the tourist area - but prices are not gouging like many restaurants that serve the tourist trade. The baked ziti was way too much - the special was unique and very tasty - gnocchi with bacon and shrimp. Wine... More

The ambiance of the restaurant was very authentic feeling and the service was good. My wife enjoyed the chicken portion of her chicken piccata. My Cesar salad was really good but my main dish was awful. I love carbonara, but the Blue Carbonara I ordered was awful and I could only take about 4 bites of it. It may just... More

We go to this restaurant almost every time we're in Charleston, beginning probably twenty years ago. It has more updated food now and still very good and modestly priced. Something on the menu for everybody.
