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.

This is an excellent Italian restaurant that will not disappoint. Everything from the bread and oil at the start of the meal through the desserts was terrific. All food tasted fresh and was prepared with care. Our server was from New York, our home state, and took excellent care of us. Definitely worth a visit. I suggest reservations.

We went to Fulton 5 last night with another couple. We had been once before, during restaurant week, and while the food was good then, it was nothing special. We really like Italian cuisine though, and I had liked the look of the menu selection previously, so we gave it another go. Good thing we did, as everyone really enjoyed... More

Awesome food, waiters, and atmosphere. Cute little placed tucked away in an alley off of King St. The bread was nothing to sing about, but boy did it taste great dipped in the sauce from mussels appetizer! Also recommend the tortellini with lobster and crab and cannelloni gelato. Had an appetizer, pasta, glass of wine, and dessert for $50 including... More

Visiting Charleston on a girls week. This restaurant is small but oh so delish. Thought I would eat pasta since arriving in Charleston all I'd eaten was the wonderful fish. Guess what, had the scallops. Just amazing. Get service, great food, great wine and desserts.Pretty little place. Enjoyed every minute. Next time in Charleston. I'll be back!!

Living in Charleston for a few months and go out every weekend night including Sundays. Lots of choices obviously but getting reservations at the last minute is next to impossible. Fulton Five has a great bar and staff and easy to find a seat, this is what sets it aside for me...no wait, good food, great service.
