    This is the worst dinner we had in a long time, very sorry to have to write this. The restaurant is beautiful . The service was really trying to make up for the noisy and inebriated tables next to us It would have been ok if the food was good. We were seated upstairs and the food was brought cold We had to resend . We had an appetizer and a couple of dishes and both were subpar. The eggplant was not cooked, the tomato sauce tasted like it was straight from the can. The cheese was hardly melted. The linguine with clams wasn’t better. I do not recommend this place particularly if you are looking for a quiet evening and like Italian food

    Vincent Chicco was recommended to me by a friend. Boy, am I happy she did. The ambience is very nice. The seating was comfortable. Our waiter, John, was awesome. He was so helpful with giving us advise on our entree selection. We shared a salad, which was a very wise choice. Unfortunately, we didn't share an entree which we certainly could have. The food was incredibly delicious and the portions are definitely large enough for a share. I enjoyed the risotto and my boyfriend had the Sicilian Sunday Gravy. Both were sensational! Topped off our meal with a shared dessert. The martinis were fabulous too. We are looking forward to another return to Charleston and another great dinner!

    It lived up to my expectations which, to be honest, weren't that high to begin with so I wasn't terribly disappointed. The food was great. Everything else was pretty mediocre. Our waiter was friendly, but service in general was lacking. Drinks were slow to come from the bar and our entrees took forever to come from the kitchen. The restaurant was incredibly noisy and every time the front door opened, we were blasted with cold air. Again, the food was great so I would probably dine here again, but not if I was trying to impress anyone special.

    My husband had spaghetti and meatballs and I was super jealous! The gnocchi was ok, but not the best. The appetizers (bruschetta, cheese platter, charcuterie) were all excellent.

    Beautiful restaurant and great staff. Couple of order hiccups, but they were handled quickly. We ordered all four types of clams and 3 of the 4 were excellent (the amount of marinara sauce on the fra diavolo drowned the clams or it would have been 4 for 4!) My burrata/arugula salad was delicious but after several bites, the over the top heat of the chili vinaigrette was too much for me. Our entrees were fantastic (Sunday Gravy and Risotto) along with dessert. We will definitely be back!

    Love the atmosphere at VC however this last visit I was disappointed in the food. Rather bland I might say and the menu needs a makeover. Service was good and the atmosphere is always great! Lobster linguini left much to be desired. Sorry BC!

    They were clearly understaffed and over-booked. Cheese plate appetizer was small, lacked Italian cheeses, centered with strawberries and stale slices of their bread. Salami plate appetizer arrived 30 minutes later and featured a version of Italian liverwurst that was inedible. Server apologized 3 times for slow service due to larger parties that had to be served first while we watched two smaller parties adjacent to us that arrived after us get their entrees. Another 30 minutes passed and our entrees arrived. My chicken parmigiana was acceptable after I removed the cheese that had a complete leathery edge. Never order the Cacio e chili. The short ribs were good. We also observed 2 adjacent parties experience even slower service as the restaurant emptied. Beautiful room but definitely will never return. Two hours for food and service like this is unacceptable. Servers worked hard but the management was obviously unprepared for New Years Eve crowd.

    We bought 2 bottles of wine, one red and one white. The waiter poured the red for 3 people and left 3 people with empty glasses that was for the white. Chicken piccata was not good at all, tasted like frozen breaded chicken over mashed potatoes, Sunday gravy meal was very good, short rib was fair, and the fish special was ok, bread was very good and bruschetta was very good. Service was fair.

    I enjoyed our experience at Vincent Chicco's. We ate early in the evening, so the restaurant was relatively quiet. We had to sit at a high top, which is not my favorite, but the chairs were comfortable enough! The alley the restaurant is located is quaint and a perfect picture opportunity. We enjoyed the charcuterie selection, cocktails, Cacio e Chili & lobster & Venetian Crab Linguine. We both loved our entrees! Overall, one of our favorite dinners of our stay in Charleston.

    The restaurant itself is gorgeous. Our waiter was phenomenal. The food however was unfortunately a let down. My husband ordered the meatballs and grits as an appetizer which he enjoyed. I ordered the clams oreganata. I was served "chowder clams" which are huge clams not meant to be eaten alone. These clams had stomachs the size of 2 large gum-balls. clams this size are meant to be chopped up for chowder or baked clams, again not to served alone as chewing these would be gross. Not to mention they were slightly undercooked. I however kept them to add the sauce to my pasta dinner. Dinner was chicken parm for my husband, great sauce, flavor, pasta, but could have had more protein. I ordered the Aglio & Olio with shrimp. Again pasta, sauce great. Shrimp undercooked and had to wrap it up to cook at home. Food came out fast which was great however undercooked seafood and un-edible clams. Beautiful, but will not be returning.

    My son lives in Charleston and we decided on this place for a bday dinner… just 3 of us .. made reservations… everything started off good but then service got slow…. Food took awhile but willing to wait … drinks took way too long.. no bartender .. manager / host / food runner could not keep up … received a drink on the house … but would rather pay for our drinks and have a better experience. Again food was delicious.

    One of the worst dining experience in Charleston. The food was bland and tasteless. The spaghetti Bolognese had the consistency of oatmeal and tasted like it. The biggest rip-off was the martini bill. The bill showed $12 for a martini and then an add on of $3 for a martini. I was told by the waiter that the $3 extra was for them to mix the martini! Terrible place!

    It was our second time here. The first time was one of the best meals I've ever had. This time, not so much. It was ok. Server was overwhelmed and service was poor. Not a great menu selection. No salads offered. Food descriptions were not accurate for what was served. What they called stew, was simply soup for $14. Outrageous price. The "pork Milanese" was simply a pork chop. The Sunday gravy was good and flavorful. The surprise at the end of the meal was a charge for using a credit card which was not disclosed on the menu or the web site. Not happy with that. Disappointing in general after the first time was totally amazing.
