My entire family lives 45 minutes from Birra and although it took some convincing from them, once we finished our lunch they realized why I wanted to drive so far away. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is fantastic, and the food is delicious. I use to work in the area so I’ve tried just about everything on the menu and I’ve never been disappointed. I cannot recommend this place more.

My friend order the lasagna and it was frozen in the middle called over the waitress Brittiny she was incredibly rude and my friend address the issue with her food and the waitress takes it right away and does not say anything. Ten minutes later she comes back with the same lasagna on a different plate with more sauce to make it look like a “new piece” , that’s utterly disgusting reheating food especially in a pandemic. The waitress says to my friend do you not like it and my friend it’s the same piece that’s kinda gross and the waitress says well it was already taken off your bill she never mentioned that in the first place and just took her dish and didn’t say anything. She also forgot to mention there was a 6 dollar up-charge for adding vodka sauce to gnocchi. I am never going back again, extremely dissatisfied and the waitress Brittiny was incredibly rude.

Great pizza, fresh unique salads, other Italian specialties and setting along scenic Cooper River in large park makes this a favorite. More people should find this gem

We had the best time out here this weekend! We chose to sit outside, and we were the only ones on the patio. We had our own two heat lamps and the fire pit to ourselves as well. It was magical. We enjoyed the food and drinks too. The Zeppolis were one of the best things we ever tasted. This was an excellent experience.

The food is an interesting Italian offering. Tasty, casual but with some subtle additions that make it special. The location is so relaxing and beautiful especially at sunset. John who is outdoor bartender and was our server tonight so attentive and can explain the food and wine options so we understood how things would taste together. He is special as the location.

This is my 3rd visit to this restaurant. We ordered from among the starters, their Calamari. It was nicely breaded and cooked. It arrived at the sametime as our specialty Bira Pizza so we did not get to enjoy the Calamari while it was hot. Their specialty Pizzas are wonderful. They are thin crust pies with plenty of toppings.

My only complaint is that the "starter" was over priced. It cost as much as our specialty pizza which was between $14 and $16 each.
