Visited here last month,(Nov 2014). Service was fine, but veal piccata was not edible it was so tough. Upon complaining, we were given a coupon for $10 discount on wine on next visit. Big deal! When it came time to pay, I tried a Discover card. Oh, sorry, our machine won't process that. Oh, Ok, let's try an American Express... More

Every time I have ate here I have either had a bad meal or it was not what I ordered. The worst was I ordered the eggplant and it came out raw! Now the reason I say Bad Luck is that everyone else had a good meal except for me. I have tried this place over a dozen times over... More

Nice little place in the heart of downtown Summerville. Have visited on 3 occasions now and have not been disappointed. Try the lasagna or the fettuccini. Pretty decent wine list.

We came for lunch around 2pm, so there were only 2 other people in the restaurant. Jon was friendly and efficient. Of course, he should have been with only one other table to attend to. I ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese which I thought was excellent. My wife and our guest both ordered the Chicken Limone and had the cook add... More

I've never had a bad meal. The Italian dishes are very good. They also have a piano player many times during the dinner hour. Will definitely return.

Greeted right away. Waitress came over and offered water. She didn't allow us to order any other beverages. When she brought the water she then took our order. After we had placed our order she informed us the credit card machine was broken. We all planned to use credit. So we asked her to call the manager. She then did... More

During the final months of 2013 a good number of the poems in "The Nocturns of a Road Monk," (Outskirts Press) were written in Alessandra's under Andrea's watchful eye and attentive care. I left off with the mussels and on my first visit this year coming home from Africa I started right where I left off....in Alessandra's, at the front... More

We had a party of 6 and everyone's meal was served at different times. Actually heard microwave beeping and it tasted as if it had been reheated. Food tastes awful. The seafood smell overpowered the entire table. Waitress only brought water and never asked if we wanted additional drinks. Save your money

While visiting historic Summerville for the "Third Thursday" monthly festival, we stumbled upon this gem. We were excited to find another Italian rest as we are from upstate NY where great Italian food is around every corner. We opted for a metal table on the sidewalk since it was a pleasant night. Menu was extensive with lots of choices...my husband... More

My husband and I came there to eat and had a wonderful time. The service was amazing and we loved the romantic music played in the background. While seated inside my husband and I decided to move outside and our server was so helpful and helped us bring our menus and drinks outside. She was so friendly and great to... More
