Al Di La
Delicious, authenticDelicious, authentic, quality Italian food! The best!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost perfectEverything was great except for the farrow salad, which would have been great had they used a decent olive oil.
The service was excellent.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome, againProbably the 12th time we have eaten there and it's just as good every time6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!Another vist to Al Di La offered great food and service.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood dinner on a rainy nightI enjoyed the visit to Al Di La. I had the carpaccio antipasti, and two primi, the tagliatelle and the scallop/asparagus risotto for my meal. The tagliatelle with duck confit and truffle oil was very nice indeed. The server was knowledgeable and attentive. I did not have one of the larger secondi plates, and I didn't drink that night, so I can't speak for the wine list. There was a larger party there that was having a good time, and based on that, I think it could get loud if the whole restaurant is full. The valet service was not available on the weeknight I was there, and parking can be difficult to find at times. Would definitely go back.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous from start to finish...Al Di La is one of my most favorite restaurants in the Charleston area - the food is always delicious, the service is wonderful - friendly, and knowledgable - we had a great young lady for our server (Tess!) last night and she made the experience even better with her excellent service and bright smile! I always get the in-house made pasta bolognese, which is outstanding, but you would be happy with any choice you made here! The wine selection is great as well! I always make this a stop when I have out of town guests because I know we will all be very happy!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ExcellentOur most recent experience at Al Di La just reinforced the fact that it is one of Charleston's finest Italian restaurants. Food, service, ambience, everything perfect. When the weather is right you must taker advantage of their outdoor seating. For the next two weeks do take advantage of their Umbrian specials in honor of the Spoleto Festival.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMenjoyable lively eveningGreat food, patient waitress as my stepmother was a pain, demanding...5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch at Al di La - Who Knew?We went to lunch midweek, right at noon, and it was not crowded! Had only been for dinner before (always crowded, need to reserve) and the lunch menu was delicious! Our service was excellent and they had us in and out in perfect time for our plane. Thank you, Al di La!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAmaing Outdoor Dinning!It was a wonderful experience. The outdoor dining was excellent. Our server was excellent, the food was wonderful! I definitely go again.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AManother great dinnerThis restaurant is really a gem: the food is terrific, the service is at just the right level of attention, and the prices are
thoroughly reasonable. Weather permitting, outside may be preferable because of the very high noise levels in the
main dining area. It becomes very difficult to have a conversation once the place starts filling up. I've been several times in the
last couple of months, and look forward to going back (early in the evening!).5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticIt was our first time in Charleston, SC and the first time at Al Di La. We loved everything about the experience, the food, service and price. We also loved our waiter Eric and will highly recommend Al Di La to family and friends. I look forward to our return trip in the fall.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good alt dinner for twoWe were seated in a very reasonable amount of time. Service was good and on time. Food held up to the al di las reputation. A very good Mother's Day date for me and the wife.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLovelyAte Outside and had a great veal dish. Could have been a touch hotter4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were outstanding, would definitely go back!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were veryFood and service were very good. My daughter in law got risotto with scallops and had 2 small scallops on the plate. This should be an embarresment to the restaurant. They should just leave them off. The asparagus risotto, itself was very good restaurant noise level was so loud, none of us could hear the specials from the waiter. Overall we were in a very up mood and really didn't mind the minuses. Quit calling it risotto with scallops though. That was pretty ridiculous. GEH4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten here dozensWe have eaten here dozens of times. A fairly loud place but the food is very good. Mostly locals eat here, and you are bound to see someone you know. The salads & pastas are excellent. The secondi are ok, and we tend to just eat the primi dishes after a nice fresh salad.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was not our first visit.It was not our first visit. It did not disappoint.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy girlfriend Kristen andMy girlfriend Kristen and I dined at Al Di La on Thursday night, and it was wonderful! Everything we ordered was fantastic. She had the beet salad, which was one of the better beet salads I have ever tried and I'm not a beet fan. She also had the risotto with sea scallops which in her words was the perfect dish! Our server LeighAnn recommended a great wine and was very attentive and helpful with out being overbearing. The duck confit and bolognese where spectacular as well. Great place for a date, we loved it and will definitely be back!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI chose Al Di La because myI chose Al Di La because my father was coming into town for the weekend.
