Good food, service and ambiance !!

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.

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

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
