We were famished upon our late arrival to Charleston. We headed to King Street in search of food. After walking a ways, we finally settled on Joe Pasta and were pleasantly surprised. Our group enjoyed the pizza, lasagna and penne pasta. The prices were also a pleasant surprise. Great outdoor seating for people watching as well.

My wife and I tried Joe Pasta for lunch the first and last time on April 13, 2014. Painfully slow service. After about 15 minutes before our server finally took our order we waited over a half hour for the food to show up at the table. The food was OK, nothing special. It took at least 15 minutes for...

I have been frequenting this place for many years. The last 3 visits have been increasingly disappointing. The most recent visit was my final. To start with, our server was poorly attentive. When she did come to the table she was in too much of a hurry to listen to us and frequently did not get us what we needed,... More

Location is incredible and really enjoyed the scenery in the outdoor seating area. Pizza menu had much selection and was quite tasty- well above average. The pricing was great compared to other dining establishments in the area. Good selection of beverages also priced pleasantly. Although staff was very pleasant, they seemed slightly disorganized and slow, No worries I enjoyed it... More

This place had a good menu with good food. We have been there many times. On our last visit on March of 2014, we noted that the menu had been changed. Even though our favorite entrees were gone, we ordered anyway. The pizza was not good and the lasagna was ok. We tried one slice of the pizza and told... More

Okay food, great for the money in this part of town. They have the cheapest drinks downtown. close to the music hall for a pre-show cocktail. Really nice bartenders.

I don't understand some of the negative reviews about this restaurant. We've visited Joe Pasta twice in the last three weeks and both times had an outstanding experience! On both occasions we were seated promptly, had very attentive servers (even on a very busy Saturday night) and enjoyed delicious food. The prices are reasonable and the drink prices were extremely...

Really smoky inside. We sat upstairs and it was loud. Only ordered spaghetti and it took a very long time. Staff is friendly but not in a hurry.

Visited on 2/16/14. Ordered two pizzas, two salads, and a bread basket. Server could not be found and after 40 minutes I asked the manager how long it typically took to cook a pizza. He offered me another basket of bread (on the house) and went to go check on the pizza. We got the second basket of bread, ate... More
