“Yummy Pizza! - a Pleasant Surprize”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Our concierge at the Courtyard Historic District hotel highly recommended Monza for pizza and since it was only about 4 blocks away we thought we would give it a try. What a nice place ...much nicer than most pizza joints! It was clean, nicely decorated and provided great service for our lunch. Their pizza’s are about 13” and available with many different topping combinations. The pizza was delicious with a thin crisp golden-brown crust. I definitely recommend their pizza although I can’t speak of anything else there. If we had stayed in town longer, I certainly would be back to try their pasta.

“"What, no wait?!?!"”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

While all of the other highly acclaimed restaurants in town had 45 minute to an hour wait time to be seated, this place had plenty of seating and got us right in. Perfect after a long day venturing around downtown! We quickly accepted immediate seating before even looking at the menu. A stroke of luck, for had we known it was a pizza joint, we probably would have skipped over it. We were more than pleasantly surprised! This pizza was one of the BEST (quite possibly THE best) we have had. AND - they had one of our favorite beers (way to go Monza!). Added bonus - the staff was very friendly and polite, and it was so much fun to sit at the unique bar along the kitchen and watch the pizzas being created and then baked in the wood-fire oven. No doubt, we will be back every time we vacation in Charleston!!

“Authentic Italian pizza”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Took a day trip to Charleston for a harbor tour and decided to try this pizza place. It was well worth the trip. Waitress was very pleasant and personable. Pizza came just the way we like it, with a nice crispy crust and no shortage on the toppings. Ate there mid afternoon and it was not busy at all, so we got seated immediately. The only issue here if finding a place to park, but that goes for almost anywhere in Charleston.

“Great for the price”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Eat here at least once a month... The food is absolutely delicious and very reasonable price. Good beer, and the pizzas are great! They don't accept reservations, but you can show and they will take your name. Small venue that has outdoor seating as well.

“Pizza you'll return for”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

I don't know if their other food is as good, but I've gone back for the pizza and beer a few times. Most recently I had the local shrimp topping, but others were tempting and it was a tough decision. Service is good, and the atmosphere casual and upbeat. Overall, it's a great place to take a break from Southern cuisine when you're out on King St.
