Very quaint bistro type restaurant with outdoor seating in quiet area. Menu has many tasty choices. Our favorites were the meatballs and fettuccine. Service was quick and friendly. As an added bonus valet parking was free with only gratuity requested.

The steamed mussels with charred tomato pesto, white wine, and arugula were delicious, and although they were on the antipasti menu, they were enough for a main course. My teenage son ordered the Zuppa Del Giorno (creamy tomato basil soup) and was very pleased. He...More

Restaurant is in trendy West Ashley just outside of Charleston. It has a nice outdoor seating area, we kept wondering if we had made the right choice to eat inside. The menu is not huge (around 6 dishes each for antipasti, prime, and seconds) but...More

We have been here a number of times, but we were partially disappointed on a recent visit. One of our party had pasta, which was terrific as usual. But the other special entrees (one veal and one seafood) were just average. Lesson to us is...More
