This hotel is in the parking lot of the Quality Inn, St Helena Island; the food was good but overpriced. We had called ahead to ask if family friendly, they assured us they were, but we arrived with a 2 month old and a 20 month old and were definitely out of place. more of a couples or families with...

Bella Luna shared a driveway with my motel, so I walked over for lunch. Prices seemed on the high side until I saw the portions. My tasty pasta dish was big enough for me to enjoy it for two meals! Server was attentive, have no complaints. Didn't order it, but the pizza looked good, too. Will have to go again.

A Friday night dinner with friends. She-crab soup was "southern style" and was different and very good. Dinners were all good, BUT were served warm rather than hot. Morgan our waitress needed better training. Together with lax management this may have accounted for our only warm food and that one dinner was only delivered several minutes after the other three?... More

Recently in the area on business. Eating alone. Service should be no different for one versus six. I was motioned to a two top next to a loud crowd do eight, in the middle of the path to the restroom. I declined. Begrudgingly she took me to a choice of four tops away from the three groups. It's not a... More

Dear Jeanne, It is with embarassment and humiliation that I read your review. While we try to provide detailed service, I am sorry we fell short on your visit. Although we do try to accommodate most requests, sometimes it is not possible. As far as the request for your wine, we only offer Moscato by the bottle and you were... More

Susan had a special with fried green tomatoes. I love their Pizza, the best this side of New Haven. Waitresses were very good and the owner came to our table and welcomed and asked us about our meal.

Our family had dinner there as we were needing a break from seafood. We had egg plant rollatini and pizza that one could tell was of home made crust. Our boys each had Alfredo. Each meal was excellent and the service was impeccable.

Love the seafood pasta, osso bucco and pork wings. So called caesar salad was bad with wilted lettuce topped with some sort of ranch or blue cheese dressing. Also excellent breakfast with the best stone ground grits. All reasonably priced. Service can be slow at times when busy, but worth the wait.

No atmosphere & located next to a budget motel, waitresses were wearing cut off jeans & the food was not bad, but nothing to write home about

A quiet little restaurant with friendly atmosphere. The sign off the road states "Fresh Local Food and Friendly Service" and we were not let down. Ordered the calzone and steak sandwich with fries. Enough food for three of us to split and take home leftovers. The waitress was so polite and friendly. She even made special pink lemonade at my... More

We ordered the pizza and mozzarella sticks. It was ready fast and the pizza was wonderful. Wish we had time to eat in one night. Maybe next time.
