Taste of Italy in SC

Although I usually steer clear of "specials," in this case I followed my waiter's advice and ordered the scallops with faro, spinach and hazelnut cream sauce. Thanks, Joe-it was delicious! Huge portion--I couldn't even finish it! Same with the tiramisu, which we shared. It was a different take on... read more

Huge portion--I couldn't even finish it! Same with the tiramisu, which we shared. It was a different take on the classic, and was good, but not what I expected/wanted.

Our booking was for 7pm last night, but inspire of that they were unable to find us a table until 7.30. There was no chance of a drink in the bar while we were waiting as all the tables were full and there was a long queue at the bar waiting for drinks. Clearly short staffed. When eventually we were...

Tomasso is just an okay dining experience at Kiawah. The classic italian dishes didn't really impress, but they were still good. I would highly recommend the Tiramasu for dessert. The atmosphere is a little stale. The view of the Turtle Point golf course is nice, but when the sun goes down, that atmosphere is lost. If you get there before... More

Ok, I admit it. Though we now live in SC, my wife and I are from the NYC area and I guess we could be called Italian food snobs. After several attempts to find good pizza in particular and good Italian food in general, in SC, we have surrendered and just consider the loss of good quality Italian food to... More

We felt like we were at a retirement home dining hall & the chairs are so low, that we were extremely uncomfortable. The shuttle service to Tomassos was convenient so need to get your car out and drive. In the summer one could probably walk here from the Sanctuary. Neither of us were happy with our food choices. Pasta was... More

The staff was absolutely wonderful here but the food is nothing short of awful. The lasagna for example, if you order it with meat they pile a stack of sausage on top of some pre made lasagna. The Olive Garden has fresher and better tasting food. I'm sorry Kiawah but you guys need to step it up, in a neighborhood... More

We went with a group during a weekend stay at Kiawah. As a group we gave it thumbs up. The food was good. I had a sort of tomato-based seafood stew, which was good, but not as good as my wife's mussels in a sauce flavored by sausage. The other 5 in our party all liked what they ordered. One... More
