“The best pizza ..EVER!!!!”
Review of Evo Pizza

Evo Pizza
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $7 - $15
Cuisines: Pizza, Bar
Description: EVO (Extra Virgin Oven) Pizzeria is the wood-fired dream of Matt McIntosh and Ricky Hacker. Matt and Ricky met while working in the illustrious kitchen at FIG in downtown Charleston in 2003. The pair spent the better part of a year forming the concept for a wood-fired pizza shop that would focus on local ingredients. In 2005 they flew the coop to start EVO. The first incarnation was a mobile wood-fired pizza oven - in other words, a fancy trailer - that they used for catering. Turns out, people really like fancy trailer pizza. It became apparent that the concept was ready for a brick & mortar restaurant, and they found a perfect home on East Montague Avenue in North Charleston, part of the up-and-coming Park Circle area. In 2007, EVO Pizzeria fired up its ovens for the public, and hasn't stopped since. We come to work at EVO every day to bring fun, delicious food and drink to our community. We source locally and regionally because we're proud to be here. We cook with love because we love to cook. And who doesn't love pizza?

“Good Pizza”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Very good brick oven pizza. Pizza was a little over done for my licking but overall very tasty. Salads were very good as well. The building was small so prepare to wait.

“Great Pizza.”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Great pizza. Not the coziest or most comfortable restaurant -- felt like a converted bar -- but the food was absolutely worth traveling for. The pizza was tasty and delicious, and reasonably priced. We had the asparagus, roasted garlic, red pepper, provolone and parmesan special, and it was very very good. Wish there were more options for dessert.

“Great Pizza, great Salads good selection of Beer.”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Extra Virgin Oven has very good pizza and a great salad. We arrived just as they were opening on a Saturday with eight diners. Arrival time was great as the line grew quickly. The Farmers salad with bacon was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. Service was pretty good remembering that we had 8 in our party.
