    If it's too crowded, get your name and cell phone number on their list and then go down the street to the Crepe Place for a drink.

    Call ahead to get your name on the wait list, it's a must. Excellent food though it's a loud place to eat thus fine for kids.

    The black truffle is phenomenal. The staff was attentive and friendly. For an Italian food joint in SC, the prices are fair. You come in hungry and leave full. Worth every penny!

    Call ahead. The wait can be long, but so worth it!! Prawns scampi and black truffle gnocchi were a hit! We ate here two nights in a row during our trip.

    This place has very nice ambiance, good for date nights. The ravioli and lasagna are both divine.

    I almost always have the eggs siciliano, but everything is good. Share with a friend as portions are large

    Go for the homemade pastas and the filet. Many locals love this place, but personally, I don't get the hype. It's a good restaurant, but not great.
