My boyfriend and I went here for dinner on Friday night and loved it. Our waiter was excellent and so nice. The food was excellent and the restaurant itself was very romantic and cozy and about a half a block off of King Street which made it even nicer that it was off the beaten track. It seemed like a...

Loved this quaint, beautiful, romantic restaurant on a side street off King. It had absolutely delicious food---the mussels were amazing. Everything we ordered was absolutely incredible. I have been to Italy twice and this is the best Italian restaurant that I have eaten in that was not in Italy:):) I would definitely go back again but don't forget to make... More

This small restaurant specializes in northern Italian food. If you want a traditional red sauce style meal, this is not the place. However, if you enjoy superb northern Italian fare I highly recommend this restaurant. I had the pork chop and it was sublime. The appetizers were great and our waitress very attentive. It's small, so make a reservation early.... More

Place reminds you of an old restaurant in Italy or New York. Its a tiny place with 20 or so tables. Fantastic food...great service. Would eat here again for sure.

Wonderful Italian restaurant with a romantic atmosphere on a quaint side street off King. The entrance itself is charming, romantic and inviting. Feels like you're in Europe. Our waitress was friendly and professional - very formal, which is what you would expect in a restaurant like this. This is definitely a couples/friends night out kind of restaurant - not for...

After a long day touring Charleston, my wife and I headed out for a late dinner. Without reservations, we happened upon Fulton Five, which is tucked away just off King Street. The venue is a classic old school, family-owned Italian restaurant. The ambiance is great. The staff was very friendly and the food excellent. I had the tagliatelle pasta in... More

This is a hidden charm in Charleston, our Grandson recommended it to us for an Italian Dinner. The food was very very good, the atmosphere is quaint and the service was superb. I had the Mussels in great tasty white sauce and a Chocolate/Espresso crusted Filet, delicious. I like the fact that you can order a half portion of many... More

Six family members for an anniversary celebration. The staff were very accommodating during planning. Our table was ready when we arrived. The footprint of the restaurant is small. The feedback on the food was all positive. Service impeccable.
