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

Maybe because I'd read a lot of negative reviews here, I didn't have high expectations, but we really enjoyed our meal here. They were very accomodating with kids, the room was pleasant, service excellent. I thought the homemade pasta was very good and the bolognese sauce authentic and fresh. We also tried lasagna, calamari, salads; all very good as well.... More

Love this Italian restaurant in Fresh Fields Village at Kiawah Island. Really good pizza with different choices from the ho hum red sauce cheese. We tried the prosciutto and arugula pizza and loved it. Our grandchildren also loved the pasta and sauce and the wait staff was very accommodating. We'll be back!

Went here for dinner during out trip to Kiawah. We had lowered expectations after eating at another restaurant on the island but had read some decent reviews of the restaurant. We had a friendly waiter who was very attentive and tried to accommodate all that we needed. The food was good but not overly impressive. We ordered a variety of... More

This was a great dining experience. The menu was extensive thus providing something for every taste. It was crowded with a brief wait, but worth it. The service at the bar and dinner table were friendly, knowledgable, and happy to be there... just as were we.
