South Carolina’s Very First Italian Restaurant Has Literally Been Around Forever

The Palmetto State has a multitude of Italian Restaurants; some are casual while others go all the way with a more formal atmosphere. At the same time, most people have a neighborhood Italian eatery they prefer as a go-to spot for an evening out. However, none of those other wonderful Italian eateries have a history quite as long as the oldest Italian restaurant in South Carolina.

We’d love to hear the memories you’ve made at this iconic South Carolina restaurant!
