Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Staff amazing! Food amazing! atmosphere amazing! The menu changes on a regular basis so you can have something new every time. Their Sunday family dinner is a heck of a deal. We went with a group of 6. Meals are served family style and you don't know what you're getting until it comes out. They asked us all about dietary restrictions, allergies and such and brought out different items for those in the group that could not eat certain things. We were so stuffed by the 3rd course and the server told us there were 2 more servings!! Crazy!

We had five adults and two children for dinner, For antipasta we had Fritto Misto and cassonenza both were tasty. Erica, our waitress suggested a super Tuscan that paired well with this course. They offered a children's pasta with either red or white sauce that the parents tasted and said "we can make a meal of this". Our children had nut allergies and the staff did a great job advising what the grown ups were eating that would cause ant problems. Grouper and risotto was fantastic. Don't pass on this restaurant, but ask waitress if you are not sure what dishes to try.

We've now been here for dinner several times and really enjoy it. (One time wasn't the greatest -- there were several of us sitting outdoors last year and one guest's meal didn't show up until everyone else had just about finished eating).
Great menu with authentic Italian dishes similar to what we've had in Tuscany. Owner Ken Vedrinski is the real deal -- several of us talked to him one recent evening and we were impressed -- he's very down-to-earth, honest and not a (all-too typical) mercurial chef. Based on the menu, the presentation, the attention to detail, the owner and the ocean views, we'll return time and time again. Coda del Pesce is at or near the top of list of our Charleston-area restaurants.

I couldn't belive they had grilled octopus on the menu. Even my four year old boy loved the bacon-tasting octopus. Rest of dinner was great too.

Even though it is located at the beach, Coda del Pesce would be a delightful restaurant anywhere.
It is small and intimate, with a limited, but lovely water view. The menu, also, is limited, but varied.
The romaine (Caesar type) salad is one of the best I've had in a restaurant, and the second courses are fresh and well prepared. The standout, though, is the pasta. All are made in house. They are wonderful!! I had bucatini which was, charmingly, a bit lumpy and irregular as befits a homemade pasta. I go for the pasta, but you will not be disappointed whatever you order. Service is properly attentive, and our waiter was able to explain each dish in detail.
