I've been trying to eat healthier and I really apprecate fresher ingredients. Maybe I'm remembering something different years ago but lately everything tastes pretty processed.

Our friends prefer Stefano's over Olive Garden and that is why we ended up at Stefano's. It is pricey but you end up taking some home with you. We had a larger group later in the evening and didn't have to wait to be seated. The waiter was attentive. The restaurant has a large menu but I think the prices... More

I start with a disclaimer as this review will seem pretty awful.. I lived in South Carolina and I would say that it has to have some of the worst food in the country. I don't know what exactly low country cooking is, but now that I think of it... It would make for some humorous posts... Without mustard sauce...... More

I do not understand the litany of great reviews for this place... 1.) Calamari- The calamari we received had decent breading. And while I didn't love the parmesan cheese sprinkled on top, that's more of a preference then a complaint. That being said, my order consisted of only tubes, not one tentacle in the batch, and they were all overcooked... More

I was with a group of work people, but I would have went there with a family as well - Nice atmosphere. Based on the reviews, I had the cannelloni and not the pizza. The cannelloni was good in my opinion. Another reviewer thought it was great. Another reviewer thought the Italian Wedding Soup was great, but thought it was... More

Great service, great atmosphere, and even better food. From the complimentary bread with olive oil and garlic, to the soup, salad, appetizer, and entree, the food was consistently outstanding. My wife and I both had the cannelloni, which was served hot, cooked to perfection, and delicious. The calamari appetizer with marinara dipping sauce was great also. Don't let the restaurant's...

I stopped in Stefano's while driving through South Carolina. The waitress was very courteous. We ordered the "New York" pizza. Unfortunately, there was nothing New York about the pizza. It was slightly better than a $6.99 Frozen Store bought pie. The fried ravioli appetizer was tasty and they had decent fries. You may have better luck with an entree.

We have been going to this restaurant for 15 years and it has always been consistently good. The last two visits were disappointing. The food wasn't up to the usual standards. We'll take a break for a month or two and try it again.

I was in Florence on a biz trip and seeking an alternative to the chain restaurant drill, I found Stefano's on TA. Arriving there, it's not much on looks, sitting in a strip shopping center but initial appearances can be deceiving. Stefano's started out strictly as a pizza/sub takeout operation and that portion of the business is all that's visible... More
