Really good dinner spot

My wife and I went to Joe Pasta's for a night out. We ordered the lasagna. It was really good. We have a very good server also. I would highly recommend this spot for good Italian food.

Really nice location and atmosphere - good food, but felt like they were rushing us a bit to get us in and out! Great if you are in a hurry, but not if you are trying to enjoy your date time!

Ordered margarita pizza with mushrooms and the added balsamic vinegar to it. Not a fan of balsamic vinegar on a pizza but guess its a... More

Great bloody mary. Worst biscuit & gravy ever. Eggs were powdered eggs. Biscuits dry, gravy no flavor. Didn't eat but a few bites. $ 20 for my bloody mary.

We ducked in here while parked on King Street in historical Charleston for a quick lunch. It was not crowded and we got excellent service. Pizza was, of course, made to order...thin crust with fresh parmesan cheese added to taste...with sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, onion and olive. It was plenty for my wife and me...for only $15. Nice change from Charleston's... More

Stopped in with the family for a quick lunch before an afternoon of touring. Our server was friendly and attentive. My sausage sandwich was very tasty, nicely spiced sausage offset with freshly grilled red pepper and marinara sauce. Husband had chicken parmesan sandwich and was pleased. The washroom could have been cleaner but i have seen worse.

I didn't eat here, but it was a block from the Hampton Inn (which I reviewed with the highest marks) and thy don't have a bar. I walked around the block and discovered this great corner restaurant with a bar having happy hour. $2.00 drinks mixed or beers were the draw, and the folks at the bar made me very... More

This was our third or fourth visit to Joe Pasta. This time, we went on a Sunday afternoon, so we had a choice of lunch or brunch. I had the meatball sandwich, as did my mom, and my husband had the Caprese Omelet. The meatballs on the sandwich were excellent. I'm very picky about meatballs, and at most restaurants, I... More

My wife and I recently stayed downtown and after a quick walk picked Joe Pasta. We had a great night planned after dinner of walking around and experiencing more of the great night life. After receiving our drinks and placing dinner orders, we proceeded to wait over an hour before our entrees appeared. When they did, we were disappointed. Many... More
