A beautiful day for dining al fresco...my group of four very much enjoyed a great Italian lunch. Our server Vic was courteous, friendly and so accommodating. Our group had a ham and smoked mozzarella hoagie (large portion and so delicious), a small pizza (awesome), spaghetti...and meatballs (friend said best she’s had) and the pollo piccata (great!!). We all were very pleased and totally enjoyed The Red Pepper. Will definitely return.More

I was in Charleston for an event and was looking for good pizza. The reviews seemed legit so I ordered delivery. Pizza came quickly, which surprised me for a Friday night. There was literally a chuck of carrot on the pizza. No way not to...notice it. The pizza was lukewarm and the dough was extremely undercooked. The topping slide off, not because of the heat, but because it was swimming in sauce. I can honestly say that was the worst pizza I’ve ever had. $20 in the garbage.More

We were seated right away and social-distanced from the other tables in our area. Service was attentive and helpful-she made very good recommendations based on what we told her we liked. The house Chardonnay went well with my fettuccine. Overall nice experience 🙂

My wife and I went to Red Pepper for dinner on our Anniversary. She had the Lobster Ravioli and I had the 14oz Pork Chop, both were cooked to perfection. As usual we always received excellent service which makes our meal that much better !

Nice Italian restaurant in downtown Summerville off of Main Street; we stopped there a few months ago for their pasta special. Sounded great on the sign but realized once we got in that you had to order a drink to get the special price which...added a few more dollars onto the cost; I'd rather them say the price is what it is INSTEAD of when you get in have to order a drink to get that price. The food was good & service was fine as well. I'm sure we'll visit again.More

Chicken Marsala was delicious. Service was prompt and sort of friendly. After a late lunch, we wanted to just split a dinner. I thought the “split plate charge” was not only out of line but excessive - $6.00. We went on a Wednesday. When greeted...by our server she immediately informed us it was wines day Wednesday, meaning all wine was one dollar off. Great! Ordered house Pinot which was still $9.00. I’m thinking I was going to get a glass of wine for around 5.00-6.00. Disappointing. One dinner, one glass of wine, one beer and two cannoli (would not order again) plus tip was $66.00. Expensive meal.More

Whenever we are in Summerville, we stop at The Red Pepper for Dinner! We use to come often when we lived here and can only stop by when we visit family! My favorite marinara anywhere!
