Italian
Genuine Italian flavors fill an airy, modern space accented by lime-wash, white brick, blonde butcher block and silver lighting pendants. An antique pizza peel dating to the 1850s hangs on the wall, portraying Indaco’s dedication to authenticity. The restaurant boasts a craft cocktail program featuring Italian classics such as the Negroni and amaro on tap and housemade Italian sodas. This concept introduces traditional Italian eating to Upper King’s booming, fine-dining scene. A 2,900 square foot restaurant, Indaco offers 100 seats inclusive of the bar and patio.

It was our anniversary dinner. They surprised us with prosecco once we sat down and overall gave phenomenal service. It’s easily become one of our favorite Charleston restaurants!

We enjoyed a restaurant week fixed price menu. Indaco did not scale back on the portions or selections for this event- an excellent value. The food was great the service was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant

Celebrating our anniversary we had made reservations because we had wanted some good Italian food. The write ups where great so we wanted to try it. Disappointed with the food. Why can’t a restaurant just have good original Italian dishes, being different is not always better, go back to basics.

Everything was very delicious!! Our table of 4 had ordered items with intention to share, but even then we had leftovers or intentionally left room for the next course. However, the server was very quick to take our plates away and never asked if we were finished. When we were able to stop him and ask for the food boxed, it never came back to the table.

I would love to give this place more than two stars.  It had an A for its health rating so I was excited to try it out. AND our hotel concierge recommended it.  Let's see... Where do I begin:

1. They seat us near the window at the front of the restaurant where the door is constantly opening and closing. The ledge lining the window was incredibly dirty and there was visible hair all on it. Clearly hadn't been cleaned in a while as our reservation was at 5:45 and the restaurant opens at 5. Not to mention the fly that was buzzing around our table.

2. When my husband sat down he immediately noticed his fork was dirty. I checked mine... yup, mine was dirty too.

3. I asked for a hot cup of water with lemon.  They brought me FOUR cups of hot water because every single one of them had dirt particles at the bottom. Even the waiter was embarrassed by it and apologized. I felt bad for him because there was really not much more he could do. He poured me a glass of water in another cup but no thanks at that point. I was already suspect.

4. Then, both of our small plates were dirty.  Like does the dishwasher not work here? This was disgusting to have OLD food particles on your plate.

5. I wanted to see if I could get my dish to be a little creamier with the pesto sauce.  But the answer was no because the chef doesnt make modifications often. I respect that but.... after items 1 - 4, I was over it.

6. Also, the black napkins were dingy and stained.

We left the waiter a nice tip because he really was kind through it all. And the manager did leave me a card that said I could come back for dinner on the house.  But I don't live in Charleston and if I ever come back, I can guarantee you, I will not be making a pit stop at Indaco. I'm sure after my experience, they wouldn't want to see me anyway.  

Best of luck during your visit to Indaco... and may the odds be ever in your favor.

I have not eaten at every restaurant in Charleston, but Indaco May just be the best. Chef Holler never disappoints! We have been, and will continue to be back over and over again!

All 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals, Black Spaghetti, Pork Chop and Black Pepper Tagliatelle to name a few. Service was excellent. Desserts were delicious. I thought food prices were comparable but the drinks were on the high side.

We had a great dinner at Indaco, everything we had was delicious. The fried artichokes were so delicious, would get a large and eat that for dinner, amazing! The meatballs were great, the tortellati, the pizza and the catch of the day all fabulous too! Will be going back for sure.

The appetizers were excellent! The apple pie pastry dessert was heavenly! My black spaghetti was good but not outstanding. Love the vibe of the place. Was worried how loud it was going to get as the place filled up but was pleasantly surprised that I could still hear my dinner companions speak.

This was my favorite meal of my weekend trip. After researching reviews, I selected this venue for the reputedly good food but was pleased with everything about the experience. The location is in a 'happening' part of downtown and the restaurant's décor was modern and inviting. We opted for the butter beans as our appetizer and I can't stop craving them. I've had them before and they are served all over Charleston, but these were laced with some alluring complimentary flavors. The risotto was some of the best I've had ! We opted for early seating using Open Table which made our experience one to savor.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Chef Hollar and team are doing amazing things in the kitchen. They had a 50 top on the patio and a full restaurant on a Saturday night and the kitchen looked happy and relaxed! The BOH and FOH staff work together great. You can tell it's a solid team and the service staff is very well trained.
