The Best Italian Food in Charleston

Vincent Chicco’s, like its namesake, history and tradition is what shapes this now modern take on classic Italian-American fare. Tucked back on Hutson Alley, Vincent Chico’s is a serene hideaway offering refined Italian cuisine with fresh ingredients, handmade pastas and house made sauces.

During the prohibition era, Vinent Chicco who emigrated to Charleston from Italy, ran a number of saloons and led the fight locally against prohibition. Chicco’s arrest was the first after a dispensary law was passed by Governor Tillman. Chicco’s arrest became infamous as many Charlestonians opposed this law. Today, Vincent Chicco’s is proud to serve elevated old-world classic Italian cuisine beholden to one of Charleston’s heroes from a lost time.
