Very impressive wine...More

"Cesca has been open less than two months and it shows in the service, which while friendly wasn't great. What was great was the food, and the drinks, and the atmosphere. This is going to be a fantastic restaurant.

Went with another couple. Generally it was OK, nothing outstanding other than the building was newly renovated. Meatballs and sauce ,two italian criteria when judging food were not good.

'Cesca, located in downtown Charleston, combines a relaxed, rustic ambiance with its interpretive southern Italian cuisine. The trattoria focuses on very fine, though unrelentingly authentic dining borne of its founders’ Italian heritage and the pedigreed experience of the executive chef.
