    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.

    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.

    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.

    Leave your cell # & browse Gateways; the wait tends to be shorter than estimated. Food is amazing and authentic.
