Delicious Italian fare in relaxed, friendly setting

On a Wednesday evening in late March, this cozy Italian was packed--always a sign of good food and loyal customers. We enjoyed their bruschetta appetizer and veal parmesan, egglplant parmesan, gnocchi bolognese, and chicken aglio. The portions were so large there was no question of fitting in... read more

My hubby and I arrived in Myrtle Beach on Dec. 27th. We were tired after our long 2 nine hour day drives and very hungry. We happened along this wonderful restaurant and found a gem. The atmosphere was very cozy and romantic. The service was impeccable. The food was divine!!!! They had a menu, but they were willing to accommodate... More

Great place for a romantic date. Service was excellent. The menu's are back-lit, making them easy to read in a dining room with lower lighting. My lasagna was amazing. It's not cheap, but it's absolutely worth it.

Could not ask for better Italian food and service. We went based on reviews and were glad we did. Truly, if you don't see it on the menu, just ask. I asked for veal carbonara rather than chicken, and they said certainly. One of the best dishes I have had. My wife had the lasagna special and found it excellent.... More

Great food and service. Everything was made fresh to order. If they don't have it on the menu just ask and they will make it for you. Great service also.

This is a hole in the wall place. A family owned, wonderful place. The food is excellent and fresh. We have gone as a couple and with a party of 12. They do an excellent job with service and food!

Fortunately I was craving Italian last night so we did some research online and found this trattoria! It has a wonderful charm and some special unexpected touches as well (illuminated menus where brilliant for those of us with less than perfect eyesight in a romantically lit restaurant). Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the wines and helped us find a... More

Perfect little spot for a quiet dinner and unlike the big-chain restaurant experiences. Delightful staff. Amazing food.

This is the only Italian restaurant in Myrtle Beach that you should go to. Food is always fresh and the menu is always changing so you can try something different each time. Service is spot on as well. Highly recommended.
