I almost bowed out of dinner last night with friends when they changed their plans and decided to go here because Italian food is not my favorite. But I'm so glad I changed my mind because this place is a find! For a small place they have a large menu. When our very helpful server explained the difference between a... More

We had the veal Marsala and a pepperoni, sausage, and mushroom pizza. Neither was anywhere near the quality of other Italian places we've visited in the area. The pizza ingredients swam around on the crust due mainly to an over-abundance of tomato sauce. The veal was drowned in brown sauce that tasted like it was made from a mix. The... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I am in the Knightsville section of Summerville. The food is always fresh and made to order and the service is excellent. They have everything from Pizza to all the standard Italian dishes. When in the area I highly recommend stopping there, you will not be disappointed.

Take out. Large antipasto salad with many toppings, and spaghetti too. Enough for three meals. Friendly staff.

A sweet family owned restaurant that went through Chef Robert Ervine's Restaurant Impossible and it seems they are flourishing from it

The Italian Bistro's decor is typical Pizza Parlor, but the food is exceptional for this type of venue. Being of Italian ancestry both my wife and I have rather discerning taste for what the food should be like, and we were pleasantly surprised. The tomato sauce is excellent, as is the homemade tiramisu. Both the eggplant and veal parmesan entrees... More
