Inspired by the ancient Tuscan city of Lucca, a place renowned for its olive oils, Trattoria Lucca brings the essence of Italian cuisine to the Lowcountry.

    Behold the View at Coda Del Pesce, Coming Next Week


    Chef and owner Ken Vedrinski’s highly-anticipated IOP masterpiece Coda del Pesce is almost here, and the early look at the space proves it’s quite a sight. There are huge windows, brick archways, plenty of reclaimed wood and just a few nautical accents to punctuate the seaside locale. And then, there’s the view. They’re still working on some of the details, but the public should be able to take it all in next week. Stay tuned for the exact date.

    We’re going to come right out and say it: make your reservations now. Ken Vedrinski’s newest restaurant, Coda del Pesce, only seats 70 — and every one of them has an oceanfront view.

    Go ahead; we’ll wait.

    Coda del Pesce means “tail of the fish” in Italian. It also means that one of Charleston’s most successful chefs is taking a big leap, beyond downtown, to Isle of Palms. Surf prediction: major waves.
