Authentic Italian in an Unexpected Locale
Owners Laura and Riccardo Bonino opened this local staple in 2011, bringing inspired, authentic flavors from Italy's Piedmont region to small-town South Carolina. The late author Pat Conroy was fond of eating here, a fact that the restaurant plays up in their marketing. But hype aside, the kitchen's use of seasonal ingredients in dishes like tagliatelle verdi (handmade kale pasta) and seared scallops makes for a memorable meal.
