I am from Little Italy and every day I eat real Italian food from street vendors to back alley restaurants. I was in Charleston for a business meeting and a guy at the hotel told me about this place, and it was worth the wait since it was a little busy. If you drive through the Charleston area and you...

Great food and service. The old timer playing the piano makes this place nostalgic and a great accompaniment to the fine Italian food. The antipasto is superb!

I was here and the food was very good, the piano was played live, and the staff were very polite. I recommend this place to anyone. The owners are from Italy and they really know how to do real Italian food

We go to Alessandra's quite often, it's a pleasant place to sit out, sip some wine and relax. This visit was no exception, it was good! If you go on line they have a coupon for wine ($10.000 for any bottle on the wine list!!) so going there becomes both a pleasant experience and economic too. I had the 4... More

This is the place to go if you are looking for an intimate dinner during the week. I highly recommend the pizza paired with a red wine. Excellent!!

My parents were in town visiting and we decided to come here for dinner. It is a small neighborhood Italian restaurant that fills up quickly! The pizzas are amazing and the kid pizza is huge. Wow! I had the Penne Ala Vodka and it was the best I have ever had anywhere. The service is excellent and the owners are... More

We went to Alessandra's for Mother's Day dinner yesterday evening. We had been twice before and the first time the food and service was excellent, the second time it was ok. We had decided to go here for dinner because it is a local restaurant and we were thinking that they may have taken time to adjust the quality of... More

We have eaten there a couple of times and enjoyed it very much. It isn't a very large place but it is a perfect spot to get good Italian food in downtown Summerville. I recommend having dinner there and then going to get a glass of wine at Accent on Wine or vice versa. That would make a very nice... More

This Italian food is the best I've ever had. It puts Carabas and Olive Garden to shame. The staff is wonderful. I have never been to a restaurant where the staff is such friendly as they are. All employees are true Italians. This is a must place to eat.
