Never noisy. Very good food and wide menu. Prices are fair. Friendly staff. Told the waiter it was my 75th birthday and was surprised that they didn't offer a free desert or a thank you for picking our place to celebrate your birthday. But I love the place and plan to return many times in the future.

This is one of our favorite places in a city with a lot of good restaurants. It seems to be much more a local choice, not so well known to tourists. Food is creative and well presented, and our service has always been friendly and reliable. Ask for a window table well in advance if you want the best seating.

From the Insulata Di Funghi to the duck breast and the special sea bass, every spoon and fork full of food was delightful. Dave, our server was not only congenial, but also quite knowledgeable about wine pairings and the menu. Wonderful experience!

I wanted to surprise my wife for her birthday with a nice, romantic meal. We had wanted to visit Fulton Five for a long time as it consistently wins "most romantic restaurant" in the Charleston City Paper. So I made the reservation at 8pm on a Friday night expecting to have one of the best meals in Charleston.

Upon arriving at the restaurant we were greeted by a less than cordial hostess who then seated us at a table for two in between two large and loud parties. We were so close to their tables that we might as well have been sitting with them - conversing privately was impossible and our hopes for a romantic meal were done at this point.

Simply put there are too many tables in too small of a space to have a romantic meal - perhaps at a few choice tables, maybe, or on a less than busy night it might be alright. Food was not at all impressive - didn't hold a candle to Pane E Vino (especially the ravoli). At the end of the night we skipped dessert and went elsewhere.

My son, whom I was bringing to school at C of C, wanted to have Italian for dinner and a quick search found Fulton Five. It's small (intimate, cozy but not overly formal), right off of King Street, and the food was great. We will be back.
