We were in town for a sporting event and passed this place and decided to try it. It's small and cozy. Luigi was our waiter: very friendly and knowledgeable. I ordered fruti Di mare fra diavola. He asked how I liked my sauce and I told him spicy. Before bringing dinner the chef sent out a sample of the sauce... More

After touring the town my husband and I decided to indulge in my obsession... Italian food. The food was great! We loved our dishes. My chicken parm was delicious and my husband was very happy with his calzone. Our server was very attentive. It is a smaller restaurant, but that's what I loved. It was great for a romantic date...

Clam spaghetti in a white sauce was delicious and very filling. The personal pizza was also very good. Away from the historic district. Our server did an exceptional job!

My father and I stopped in for an impromptu lunch and Luigi helped us. He was so kind and full of wonderful conversation. The food was also amazing! I definitely recommend this restaurant.

There were almost 20 of us in our party and we were well taken care of by the waitstaff and the food was wonderful as always. Luigi was our waiter and went above and beyond to make sure everything was great and he hit hit the mark!!

My family ate here after our son's wedding. There were 10 of us, including the bride and groom. This was a really special occasion. Everything was perfect. The service was outstanding. The food was fantastic. We had 3 children with us. The children loved their spaghetti and meatballs. I had the eggplant parmesan. It was the best I have had... More

Visiting charleston and decided on some Italian food. Was hesitant to stop because the parking lot was empty. The staff was wonderful but I'd have to say that the food was just average. I had pizza and my husband had pasta. The sauce for both was a little bland. If we go back to Charleston we would try some place... More

In Charleston for the weekend, checked TripAdvisor for great place to dine, discovered this place with a very high rating, tried it, enjoyed it! It lives up to its rating "big time" for a small place. A thank you shout out to our waiter Brandon for suggestions for my wife's dietary needs.
