Had a birthday dinner here and had super food and service. Sat outside, cool for September, but wonderful ambiance. Had the steak - excellent. Others had ahi tuna and whitefish. All perfect. Great presentation. Highly recommend!

Fulton Five never ceases to please. It's not the largest restaurant in Charleston... it's not in the center of all the bustle ... it is, instead, perfectly situated off King Street, a little South of Market Street, in a historic building creating a very intimate...More

The menu is primarily Italian cuisine, however local dishes are incorporated. I sat at the bar before dinner and it was obvious that the kitchen knew what they were doing. The kitchen and wait staff worked very well together. The hostess that greeted us at...More

This has been one our favorites in the Holy City for years. Professional wait staff, excellent and varied menu, nice ambience. A smaller venue than most, but never a concern except getting reservations during peak times. Ask for the chef's limoncello.

Locals recommended this restaurant (reservations advised) and we were not disappointed. Excellent food. In fact, best bruschetta we've ever had (including during visit to Italy)!. Main courses equally delicious! Good location. Atmosphere quiet, "refined". Agree with reviewer who stated servers could be more friendly. Ours...More
