Best Italian in Myrtle Beach?
What do you all think is the best Italian in the Myrtle Beach area? We are looking for AUTHENTIC Italian food - not smothered in cheese, or full of heavy sauces. I have read some reviews and these are the places that seem to get mentioned a lot: Villa Romana, Luigi's, Ciao!, and Benny Rappa's. Opinions? Thanks!

I can vouch for Villa Romana. It's not going to be "AUTHENTIC Italian food", it's Italian-American. But it is good, and there are plenty of choices that don't involve cream sauces or gobs of cheese. I've also heard from friends (as recently as this past weekend) that Ciao's is terrific.
Chianti South in N. Myrtle is my favorite.

Man you make a native cry! :) Don't eat Itallion in MB. You'd be better off to go to Charleston, or even Conway or Columbia. Instead eat some of the best seafood in the world in Calabash or Murrell's Inlet.
