Good service and better than average food

We have eaten at Joe Pasta 3 times and it has been consistently above average. The best thing is the service, and the convenience/location to King Street shopping and the Charleston Music Hall......but the food is good too. Would definitely visit again.

I went to Joe Pasta because I had a groupon. I was in Charleston for an 8 day vacation so I needed to use it. I ordered the lasagna, which was good. Everything on the menu is alacarte, be prepared for a poor value. The music was very loud!!! The service poor. The cooks and wait staff spent their time... More

I had a "hankering" for Italian food tonight while on a visit from south Louisiana and we decided upon Joe Pasta. The weather had taken an unexpected turn to the "comfortable" side, so we sat outside & enjoyed the ambience of downtown Charleston. Our waiter, Adam, was very attentive and personable. The spaghetti & meatballs were delicious! Prices were very... More

I came in here for lunch and couldn't have been more disappointed! The tables are placed so close together that it's very difficult to get in and out of your seat plus not listen in on others conversations. My waiter checked on me two times. First time was to take my drink order. The second time was while I was... More

This is a low key, full service pasta place. In addition to the most common meals, one can build their own pasta meal. We were tired from a day of sightseeinjg and this hit the spot. There is even an ATM inside.

My husband and I went for dinner on a Tuesday night and were seated in the empty upstairs. The hostess explained that the downstairs was filling up quickly (3 empty tables seen from the door). We were the only folks upstairs except for the bartender who had not finished setting up the bar and was clearly not ready for customers.... More
