Pasta, pasta!

Had the spegetinni and meatballs and the meatballs (4) were tasty & light. This moderatly priced restuarant had a small but complete selection of most of the common Italian dishes.

We just happened by this restaurant while we were walking on King Street, so we thought we'd give it a try. We ordered a pizza which was fairly good, though not superb. Once the pizza was delivered to our table, the waitress never returned (until it was time to bring our check). We sat there with empty tea glasses throughout... More

Visiting Charleston in April and ate here with a Groupon that was supposed to be for lunch only. The restaurant honored it for dinner without a word. Sat outside and people-watched. Good pasta and great service. The waiter gave my teenage daughter a free refill on her lemonade in a to-go cup on a hot evening.

Food was very good. Prices below the norm for downtown Charleston. Beer was very cheap. Staff was friendly. Restaurant was on the corner. You could sit at bar, at a table or outside if you likes. Would definitely eat here again.

After touring the College of Charleston with my son, he picked Joe Pasta for lunch. He had the Italian Cold Cut sandwich. I had the Chicken Parmesan. Service was fine. Not a long wait at all! The food was good. Portions worth the price. If you are looking for a simple lunch, this place will do just fine.

Enjoyed an Italian themed restaurant, good food and service. There was some confusion with the wine but they sorted that out for us pleasantly.

I liked everything about this restaurant. It's located on King Street, so it's very easy to find and accessible. I easily made reservations, and when we arrived, the hostess was courteous and welcoming and showed us to our table and said he hoped we'd enjoy our meal. We visited with our waiter and asked some questions about the menu and... More

The Mrs. and I go to Joe Pasta every time we visit Charleston. She loves the pizza, while I usually order pasta with meatballs and the rosa sauce. The small risk of a bad meal, which has happened exactly once, is worth the joy of what is typically a superb and memorable meal. Just watch out for the temptation of... More

We dined at Joe Pasta's in Charleston in May 2015. It was a nice day, so we chose to sit outside. We ordered linguini pasta with chicken. The pasta was just okay, but the chicken was terrible. It was "processed." Ugh! Our server had an "attitude." With all the other wonderful restaurants in downtown historic Charleston, don't bother with this... More
