Looking for a place to meet up with friends on our way through Columbia, I selected this well-rated place for Sunday Brunch. My high expectations were not met. The restaurant is easy to find from the interstate and has great parking. It is attractive for a deli and the service was friendly and prompt. So why the disappointment? Perhaps I... More

We stopped here for lunch while traveling based on reviews and were quite pleased. We heeded the advice to try the smoked Gouda and bacon pimiento cheese spread with the pita chips...oh, my!! That and a bowl of their tomato bisque was like comfort food for grown ups. So yummy! My husband had the sailor sandwich, with knock wurst, pastrami,... More

I consider myself a bit of a pimento cheese connoisseur, and Di Prato's is still my favorite. They let you sample their homemade cheese and pita chips as well. It's a casual deli atmosphere which is great for lunch. I've never had anything there I didn't like. The brunch is fantastic, but it can get a bit crowded on the... More

Di Prato's is an excellent place to go for brunch. There is a lot of selections on the menu for brunch along with their deli menu. My wife and I shared the French Toast Monte Cristo and it was delicious. The kids enjoyed the chocolate chip pancakes. It was an extremely busy Sunday morning but the staff does an amazing... More

The pita chips with pimento cheese are perfection! You have got to try these!! The service is also excellent. However, everything else is your typical deli cuisine and very over priced.

Our 'Girl' lunch club gave it all Thumbs Up. We got here early (about 11:15) and were seated right away. All ordered different sandwiches and every one of us said they would definitely be back!

On a tip from a dental appointment, we stopped in about 4PM (early "dinner") the day before the Gamecock-Texas A&M football season opener. We tried soup & half sandwich with one salad and appetizer pita chips and jalapeño pimento cheese spread. All good and in large quantity. Excellent waitress who noted that they would be slammed tomorrow with take-out tailgate... More

We decided to try this out for Brunch. We made the right decision by heading there early. We arrived around 10:30am or so, and got one of the last tables available. By the time we had our food, the waiting area was swarmed. This is a popular brunch spot. The food was really good. I ordered an omelette with egg... More
