hidden gem close to market streetfriendly, professional staff, outdoor dining in a quaint and charming courtyard setting, pleasant music in the background, delicious options from cocktails, appetizers, entrees and even dessert. As a local I would DEFINITELY return for a romantic dinner. Not your "average" restaurant option and just blocks away from the hustle and bustle that Market St. and neighboring touristy streets sometimes represent on a busy weekend in Charleston.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE THIS PLACE!Wonderful food!

My husband loved his Tasso pasta dish! Ioved the mozzarella tomato and pesto on crusty bread for an appetizer. I had a salad entree with shrimp. The portion was small i started eating some of his pasta because i was still hungry! The waitress was very friendly and efficient. I would recommend but don't order the salad if you are expecting to make a meal of it.
