“Superior Italian fare”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

This restaurant is not a fancy place for a special occasion, but it's not just a pizza place. The wood fired pizza is very good with a crisp crust. The stars on the menu are the small plates and the pasta. Fried squash blossoms with shaved squash salad was excellent. The lobster pasta was good but not particularly memorable, but the morel and sausage pasta more than made up for it. It's a little loud but certainly tolerable. There is plenty seating at the bar if reservations are tight. Parking is available in a shared lot with The Ordinary. Not your standard Charleston Italian, and well worth a visit.

“The winner on this trip to Charleston!!!!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

This place is outstanding, the moment we walked in the hostess made us feel very welcome. After sitting down we were greeted by griffin our server, who I might add gave us the best service on this trip to Charleston. He knew his stuff, so much that we decided to let him order for us. The atmosphere of this place is unreal, the food from start to finish wash delightful. Polpette, Carne crudo, Black Pepper Tagliatelle...it's all great. We look forward to coming back.

“Go For the Chef's Tasting Menu!”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Order a glass of wine and enjoy the choices the chef will prepare in the tasting menu. Can't tell you what you'll have, because it changes depending on what the chef is cooking that night. Our favorite course was a beef filet prepared "sous-vide", and then charred on the outside. It almost melted in the mouth!
We also enjoyed a conversation with the manager who stopped by, and Trevor was a wonderful server! Great job guys!

“Southern Hospitality at its best!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

This was my first visit to Indaco and it will certainly NOT be my last! We started with a tasty appetizer and it was enough for two. My mom and I each ordered a different pasta dish and found that both were equally delicious. BUT what made our meal even special was the hospitality shown by the staff. The Bartender Corey went out of his way to describe the wines and answered all our questions about the menu. He was surely a delight as was the other female bartenders. They all assist each other and show a real passion for teamwork. Management and team are to be commended! Next time, I will try the pizza too! Way to go Indaco!

“A Restaurant I Must Return To”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

I just had a wonderful salad and the Bianca pizza. Every flavor (the ricotta, fontina, mozzarella, and rosemary oil) blended perfectly. Our server Ryan was so knowledgable about everything on the menu and wine list and was absolutely delightful to chat with. I will certainly return the next time I am in town.
