“Simply outstanding pizza.......”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

I understand that I am not from Chicago or New York so I most likely do not appreciate "great" pizza. That is a pre-emptive shot of sarcasm at those that believe that great pizza somehow only exists outside of that small area of the world.

We had dined at Hyman's for lunch on the day of our visit so we were not famished or anything.
We arrived around 8:00 PM on a Saturday night and sat outside. We ordered 2 small pizzas, again due to the fact that we had enjoyed a large lunch. Our party of mom, dad and 3 sons loved the pizza......one pepperoni (Brooklyn Bridge) and a Neopolitan (add Mushroom/Onion/Tomato/Pepperoni).

Our next visit to the area will include a return visit to this great little establishment. Wait staff were all so very friendly and helpful. This is the kind of operation that our family loves to support with our patronage.

We found a true gem in "La Pizzeria". Many thanks from our family.

“Little gem”
Reviewed June 18, 2012 via mobile

Truly good Italian hasn't always been easy to find in these parts, but several visits here tell us this is the real thing. Fresh, homemade and clearly owner operated we have enjoyed this spot every time. It isn't cheap nor fancy, but it is real and that is worth a lot.

Thank you so much for your review. Many might say that we are glad that you found us, but we are glad that we found you! We are thankful that you have an appreciation of our efforts to provide quality, authentic Italian food in a cozy atmosphere. With a place so small, it is so easy to think of our customers as more of our friends and family, Welcome!

Regards,

“Best Pizza in Charleston!”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

So good, fresh, quality ingredients, no skimping, nice staff, cold beer. All the right things. Truly the best pizza. Thin crust pepperoni and mushroom was about as adventurous as we wanted to be last night, but man was it good.

“Italy in SC!”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

Fantastic homemade pastas, interesting and value-laden Italian wine list, and GREAT marinara sauce are highlights of this family run bistro. It's location in the corner of a strip mall and unpretentious decor might fool the passerby, but dive right in and you won't be disappointed. Some of our favorites include the Eggplant Rollatini and classic Caprese salad with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. The Caesar salad is legit as well. Seafood is always fresh and local. We always get a pizza Margharita to take home for the kids. Laura the owner will come by and say "Buon giorno!" with her native Milanese accent and treat you like a regular! You'll become one soon!
