Great atmosphere, better food and service was outstanding. Food was incredible and pricing was ok. Walking the streets of Charleston afterwards was the best dessert.

We sat at the bar and were served by Arie. He was friendly, prompt & efficient. We enjoyed the Mexican Pizza Dip, Carolina Cheese Steak & a Buffalo Chicken Salad. The food was surprisingly very good. We would definitely return if in the area again....More

We had the $10 lunch special on a Sunday. I had the Chicken Parmigiana. Nice large portion with a delicious side salad. My wife had the chicken Leo which she loved! Our waiter was also the bartender. His name is Bryson. He was excellent!

So many Florence restaurants are closed on Sunday, but this one was open. So we tried it and were pleasantly surprised. Plenty of seating for large groups without feeling like you are getting squished in. A variety of options for different tastes. Great service.
