Dine or Dash Is Souri’s Italian Bistro a Good Hit (or a Near Miss)?
Up Highway 17, across from Park West and tucked away in a small shopping center next to Charleston Nation- al, sits Souri’s Italian Bistro whose slogan is “Passion for Great Italian Food”. I have come to Souri’s on the recommendation of a friend, who tells me the Italian food here is fabulous. The store front is unassuming and the dining room is softly lit and intimate. After perusing the quaint menu, we order the Lobster Ravioli as an appetizer. After taking our order, our server returns with warm, fresh bread and seasoned olive oil. The Lobster Ravioli includes fourplump al dente ravioli filled with tender and moist lobster smothered in asweet marsala cream sauce and topped with crawfish and sautéed spinach.
We order the Shrimp Anglio e Olio and Spaghetti with Meatballs in Bolognese sauce. The medium-sized shrimp, fresh, firm and tender, are sautéed in white wine, garlic and herbs and served over thin spaghetti. The dish is light with delicate flavors over a nicely cooked al dente pasta. The Spaghettiwith Meatballs in Bolognese sauce is adorned with two meatballs over thin al dente spaghetti with a smat- tering of sauce. The meatballs are firm and hearty but lacking a signature spice combination to make them memorable. The portions are large, leaving no room for dessert. The service is friendly and attentive, the food is carefully prepared and the atmosphere relaxed and cozy. The passion at Souri’s permeates.
Off the beaten path, but worth the trip, I recommend ending your next search for
