Intimate retro trattoria for simple Northern Italian fare & wood-fired pizza, plus craft cocktails.- Google
"Most recently I ordered the duck confit pasta dish and it was extremely salty."
"One of the best italian restaurants in the city."

We have visited 3 possibly times using Groupon vouchers. Today upon passing the check we were informed that they no longer accepted Groupon and we would have to call Groupon for a refund. I had the seafood stew, the tuna was drastically over cooked and the shrimp was very fishy. We we'll probably never visit again. The quality of the food is not worth the price.

Really enjoyed the gnocchi and the saltimbocca dish was quite good. Service was fantastic as they gave us free glasses of prosecco by saying it was our anniversary. They use fresh veggies locally and have several herbs right outside their door. The caprese appetizer was incredible and I enjoyed the shepherd salad too.

One of two or the best Italian restaurants in the area. I've been here many times over the last several years and it is pretty consistent (the last time my tried and true ricotta gnocchi and shrimp wasn't up their normal standards with the gnocchi being a bit under done... but they made a new one which was far better). Try the gnocchi. It's the best I've had anywhere.

Amazing handmade pasta. Delicious wood-fired pizza. What more need to be said?

OK, first of all, our server, Brie, was wonderful, caring, excellent. She gets 5 stars. The food was good but not great. We spent $95.00 for two people to have a very nice (not memorable, but no complaints - excellent) dinner and two glasses of wine each. OK, we sat outside because the evening was lovely, the location spot on, and the outdoor seating really pleasant. Then comes the music! In my whole life on this planet I have never heard a worse! awful! no good! very bad! choice of music for an Italian (or ANY) restaurant that could possibly be in this galaxy or in galaxies as yet undiscovered. A couple of examples: we were treated to disco music from Saturday Night Fever, some quasi-rap "music" and a variety of other puerile non-songs that the most modest musical intellect would find annoying - the kind of music a thirteen year old would choose. You wouldn't even find this playlist in a sports bar, let alone a restaurant that serves a high end menu. This alone (music) is reason enough not to come back to the restaurant. Honestly, I realize I am going on about this; but truly, the music was so present, and unavoidable, that you couldn't just enjoy the otherwise lovely ambiance and enjoyable evening. I am given to understand that the manager/owner likes that music and chooses the playlist each night. While he is entitled to his musical choices, that is no reason to thrust it upon unsuspecting patrons who would like to enjoy their dinner in peace with - perhaps Italian!!! (DUH!!) music given the theme of the restaurant - maybe light jazz, maybe do a survey...find out what your patrons may want as a backdrop to their dining experience. just sayin'...

All three times I went I found my food to be over salted to the point I couldn't eat it.

We just arrived home from Al Di La- 2 1/2 hours after our reservation. We were served the wrong meal (twice), the correct one (cold), charged for a party of 7, when we were a party of 2, and comped for absolutely nothing. When we asked that part of the bill be comped, we were told that although the night manager was able to do so, he refused. He advised we could call later next week and deal with it. Worst dining experience I have ever had in Charleston. I am local and will absolutely never go to this restaurant again. Awful and humiliating service with mediocre, cold food at best.

I've been continually disappointed in al di la. The food is only okay and the service has been awful on more than one occasion. There are so many great places to eat at in Charleston I wouldn't waste my time here.
