Outstanding quality, service, and decor. We have always had a great meal - menu has something for everyone. Great location with free parking. Love this place
Great service, good food and fun atmosphere. Recommend highly.
I absolutely LOVE the RED PEPPER in Summerville, SC!!!! They have the best lasagna I have ever had!!!! Their service is more than terrific every time I go there!! I will ONLY eat Italian food from there as I find the Olive Garden to be substandard compared to the RED PEPPER!! Keep up the great work, you guys, & know that I am addicted to your lasagna!! Thank you for your great food & service!!! PS: I rate you all 10+ stars :-)
I have been to Wild Olive on multiple occasions and have always had a wonderful experience. The food is amazing. I lived in Florence, Italy for a while and when I came back to the states I was constantly disappointed in the Italian food. However, when I found Wild Olive I was extremely pleased by the authentic Italian cuisine. The ambiance is perfect for a dinner date or a special occasion. I highly recommend dining at Wild Olive and enjoying a night out in John’s Island!
The food here is always wonderful, however, I won't go back until they address the atmosphere problems. The acoustics in the space make it impossible to have a conversation, which is what you would want to have. I have heard this from many others who have been and also mentioned despite the wonderful food the atmosphere kills the experience.
Maybe not a relevant review...I went within a year of opening. Limited menu & pricey...not a bad thing, but small portions. Drink orders move like a herd of turtles. Service was questionable...Server would walk past table after initial drink order without further inquiry, refill on water or refresh bread basket. It's a small place so when a server ignores you it makes for an uncomfortable situation. Neither myself nor my wife have been compelled to return...and we live 2 blocks away.
Go Somewhere Else!
My husband and I took out his little sister for dinner. They ordered Chicken Parmigiana for $16.95 each. Both chicken breasts were BURNT and UNEATABLE. We complained to the waiter and waited for a manager to come by our table. No manager came by. We were CHARGED for both chicken dinners with two $3.25 cannolis on the house.
I couldn't believe the kitchen would serve burnt food and hide it under cheese and sauce like that. I couldn't believe the waiter didn't do more to make our dinner acceptable to eat. I couldn't believe no one cared.
They proudly put a 5 star rating on their door but don't back it up. AVOID THIS PLACE!
Indaco does not disappoint unless you want greasy pizza and saucy pasta. It is fun to order many dishes, one at a time, and share with your table. The pizza is great, the aged prosciutto to die for, and the wine list offers something for everyone(and at a reasonable price point). I have been there three times and have ordered new dishes each time. I have not found one that does not combine fresh ingredients in the most delightful ways. Kudos!
I was looking forward to some good Italian food and had been told that this was a great place by several coworkers.
We must've caught them on a bad night or my coworkers have really bad taste. The bread was stale and the spiced oil was just some dried herbs in the oil that did nothing to improve the flavor. We ordered a Caprese salad that was tasteless and lacking any visual appeal. The lettuce was Iceberg piled in the center with nothing added to the tomatoes or the mozzarella. We asked for some olive oil or balsamic and was brought some prepared italian dressing and were told that they didn't have any balsamic.
At this point, we decided to find somewhere else to eat.
The waitress, which tried to do a good job but spoke very little english was still trying to take our orders. The owner was standing in the dining room and we asked him to come over. He seemed disinterested in our comments and told us that they had good pasta dishes and that they didn't need any balsamic. He didn't offer any other comments about the food or service.
I hope that this a bad night but given the owners attitude, I have my doubts.
I'm posting in here as a reminder for myself to dine here; so:
Best Italian in Charleston! Fulton 5 and Pane Y Vino are great, but family night on Monday is the best thing that's ever happened to me.
Amalfi's is like a hidden gem in Mt. Pleasant! It's in he back of the shopping center on longpoint. The owner is super friendly and his menu is actually authentic not a recreation. My family dined on a busy Monday night for kids night (kids ate free) and our service made us feel like we were in a five star restaurant! Brandon was really good. We will definately return!
I haven't been but the comments convinced me to go when I go back ..I love Italian food.Do you have one at Myrtle Beach?
Bacco is my go-to Italian restaurant in the Charleston area. I have been there many times and have never been disappointed by the food, drinks, or service. I tend to be very picky with Italian food, after living in Italy for a short time. Chef Michael is an expert at recreating and reinventing many of the traditional Italian dishes I love. I especially enjoy his ability to prepare perfect hand made pasta cooked Al dente, as it should be. His main courses are also quite amazing, and we look forward to creative specials like the seared lamb neck. While you are there, make sure you give the home made limoncello a try. I look forward to my next visit. Ciao!
Four ratings, 3 one-star, 1 two-star. True average rating: 1.25 stars.
So why does it rate 2.2 stars?
Things wrong from my visit last summer (and only visit).
1. Wait staff took over 10 minutes to say hello to the table (We, a 4 top, were 1 of 4 tables so they weren't weeded)
2. So much dust and crud on the walls that it was NASTY to look at.
3. Lack of management intervention during a scuffle between two employees. Curse words flew rampant out of one guys mouth involved in the scuffle.
4. Wait staff (all four servers), hostess and bartender stayed by the bar and talked the whole time. Drinks stayed empty and the cook had to walk the food out due to our "server" chatting at the bar.
5. Management promised gift certificates mailed due to our horrible experience to make up for the scuffled witnessed but they never came.
6. Food was marginal at best.
7. The best part was the cook who walked our food out and checked on us 2x due to our waiter loving to chat with other workers.
I've run a restaurant and I never would have allowed this lack of service to take place. I will never go there again and when friends ask, I am very honest about my experience there.
Nastiest lasagna....how do they stay open? Gross.
I wouldn't waste your Restaurant week meal here. The carpaccio and tuna were pretty flavorless, the pasta and short rib entrees were pretty good, but nothing to lure me back there. The dessert that they brought was awful. It was a chocolate covered strawberry (that didn't even taste very good), a few berries soaked in liqueur, and the tiniest apple dumpling I had ever seen. I mean.. couldn't you do a Cannoli or something? All I could think about on the way home was that pint of Ben & Jerry's waiting for me in the fridge. They lured me with their deliciously described menu, but when it came down to it, the execution fell short.
