“Reasonable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Recommended by the hotel, this restaurant was quite acceptable, as the alternative is mostly chain restaurants, and bars. The menu was a mix of Italian and Greek choices, the service was perfect, and the prices were very low, at least in comparison to metropolitan areas. The food was very good, well prepared, and served efficiently.

“Family Tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

If you want quick, economical, and delicious food then Mad Italian is the place to go! Mad Italian is a place my family goes to at least twice a month. The service is great and they make you feel so welcome, just like you are part of their family. The atmosphere is always pleasant and clean. The decorations along with the food are unique and eclectic. My family enjoys the food so much because of its freshness and variety of foods to select from. We especially enjoy the Greek cuisines. This restaurant is one you will enjoy for so many reasons, whether it be with you alone, as a couple, family, or friends

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Enjoy this place. My wife and I have been here 3 times in one week. Great pizza and Greek food. You can not go wrong here. Don't forget to look up and see the inverted table on the ceiling.

“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Recommended to us by the desk girl at a nearby Hampton Inn. Not much to look at from the outside but charming on the inside. My wife had eggplant with spaghetti which she said was the best she ever had. Very fresh and all eggplant . My sandwich was more than enough. Price was under $30 which included a glass of wine.

“A yearly experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The choices were interesting and different. I especially enjoyed 'Our Famous Spaghetti ala Greek'. I had it with the marinara sauce, then cheese grilled on top with feta cheese throughout. It made for just the right Greek touch to an Italian favorite. While waiting for the meal to be served there are many items to catch the eye, such as the upside down tables/chairs on the ceiling and the many plants and bottles of wine. The wait staff was friendly and welcoming; the owner came out to greet us at the end and was so glad to hear we stop there
each year when we travel from up north to South Carolina. We fully intend to make this a tradition!
