This restaurant has really done a wonderful job of pulling together some regional Italian flavors and textures into a light and airy updated earthy atmosphere. From the first greeting by almost the entires staff, the Bartender as well as the Servers and Expos...all professional and knowledgeable and very pleasant without being overly cheerful. House red by the glass Happy Hour was more than adequate. Whipped Ricotta with Honey for dipping bread a great touch to a Ceasar Salad with just the right amount of dressing and anchovies requested on the side. The star of the show is the food including home made pastas such as an toasted Angel Hair, with Blue Crab cream sauce, Porcini Mushrooms topped off with garlic bread crumbs. No room for dessert, but maybe next time. Highly recommend!! We will return soon!

I went to Charleston to visit an old friend and we stayed for three nights eating out every lunch and dinner. This stop was our favorite. It was restaurant week so we each got to sample quite a bit and we shared everything.

Rosemary focaccia bread -- amazing. I don't usually love focaccia but I loved this.
Fusilli lunghi -- awesome. It's rich but sooo good. Might have been my favorite.
Pork Meatballs -- best I've ever had. I wasn't excited when my friend ordered this but I would have loved it as my whole meal.
Mezze maniche which is sweet potato and mushrooms -- great. Perfect blend of ingredients.

I highly recommend this place and will search it out if I come back.

This place is immaculate! So many employees asking you if everything is okay. I believe the manager was the one we spoke with and was really nice. If you are looking for a romantic place this is it. Best Italian food in the area. My husband and I both could not finish the food because they gave us so much which was nice to have it for a midnight snack. Absolutely wonderful!!

We did our fair share of eating while in Charleston, 167Raw, 5 Church, Husk, Grocery, Eli's Table and Le Farfalle exceeded all our expectations. Aside from the fantastic meal, the service was amazing. Don't skip the chocolate granache cake even if you are full- and you will be.

We had a lovely meal here before Christmas! The food was absolutely delicious (you MUST try their focaccia - among the best I have ever had) and the service was top notch. We could tell a lot of locals were there so that is always a good sign. We didn't have a reservation but we called ahead and they told us if we showed up right when they opened that they would try to squeeze us in - so we were lucky to get a table!

We also thought the restaurant itself was gorgeously done and very warm. The staff was friendly as well. A definite hit!
