Our Story

Bringing the spirit of Italy to the heart of West Ashley

share an experience with us...

After leaving Italy in the early 90's, Giuseppe and Fabio spent two decades immersed in the world-class culinary culture of Manhattan. Now, they've brought their Italian roots from the Big Apple to West of the Ashley.

We invite you to enjoy a delectable glass of Italian wine at Bacaro - the bar at Al Di La - before being whisked away to the Italian countryside on a gastronomic tour of the motherland.

From our delicately crafted specialty drinks to our signature fresh handmade pastas, your palate is sure to be awakened.
