Cinghalie vs. Pazo (or somewhere else for nice dinner)

  • 3

Will be going to celebrate our anniversary. Have been to Charleston and LOVE it, but looking for something not quite as pricey (still upscale). Would like relaxing and cool (but not clubby) atmosphere. Thinking of going one place for drinks/appetizers, then another for dinner. Staying at the CY harbor east hotel, so would like to be close to there. Thanks!

  1. I would choose Cinghiale. I feel that Pazo has good food, but honestly it's too loud and if you go a bit later at night it does start to get a bit of a bar/clubby feel to it. There are also two different sides to Cinghiale, one that is more bistro and one that is more fine dining. I've been to both and think they are both wonderful.

    1. re: Teamjamjam

      Thank you, Teamjamjam. Would it be worth it to go for drinks/apps @Pazo and then go to Cinghalie for dinner? We're trying to fit in a couple different restaurant experiences in our night :).

    2. I love Cinghiale but haven't ever been to Pazo. I think that Cinghiale (the Osteria side) has a good feel for an anniversary dinner. Great wine list, too!
