Nice Family Style Italian Eatery

My husband and I were visiting Summerville stopped in and was very pleased. The wait staff friendly. Patio atmosphere was nice and the piano player was a nice touch. Food good. Entrees could of been a little bigger.But all in all a good solid restaurant.

Alessandra's recently moved to the corner of their street where the seating is totally outside. I imagine this will not be favorable July through August; however, it was pleasant for Mother's Day. Food was excellent. I am no Italian cuisine expert but is far better than chain "wannabes."

We tried this restaurant out last night for my husband's birthday. Our waitress was the owner and I'll be honest the service was very lackluster. The bread "rolls" didn't have much flavor at all. Once our order was finally taken it took awhile to get our salads. You could tell the salad dressing was made in house, which is nice... More

Excellent food and service. Cute little spot on the corner. Great lunch. The owner and his wife were right there to talk to you.

I believe Alessandra's closed right after Christmas, 2014. Not sure about that, but it was a lackluster restaurant that attracted mainly tourists due to its location.

It was a great restaurant, open on Sunday evening which was a plus. We went in Jan and then back a few weeks later and it was closed.

Something has changed here. Don't get me wrong, this place has never been great , but it was okay in a pinch. It is Summerville after all...our options are very limited; I wish somebody would realize that there are refined pallets and people who crave quality restaurants in this town...but I digress. I had lunch here today and it was... More

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.
