Italian
Located on Charleston’s Upper King Street, Indaco (Italian for “indigo”) serves rustic Italian cuisine by Executive Chef Mark Bolchoz. Wood-fired pizzas, hand-crafted pastas, housemade salami and cured sausages fill the restaurant’s menu which can be enjoyed family-style or a la carte. With community tables, an open kitchen, and a comfortable atmosphere, Indaco can accommodate 100 guests for a casual night of food and drinks. The wine list is focused on affordable Italian varietals, cocktails on tap, and the fresh sodas are made in-house.

The massive wooden doors on Upper King Street are your first indication that Indaco is different from the typical Charleston restaurant. Rustic details continue inside with butcherblock tables, lime-wash walls, and white brick. An open kitchen with nearby community tables lets interested diners keep an eye on the action inside the kitchen. Outside, a patio puts you streetside to watch Upper King Street’s vibrant nightlife scene.

    Everything was seriously great. We love Indaco. Our served was super kind and friendly. I ordered a pasta dish. The caramella or something like that as did another person in my party. The other two people in our party ordered pizzas. We also had calamari appetizer which was yummy. Loved the peppers that were served with it. When our pasta dishes came out the portion was REALLY small in my opinion. Like I don’t expect an Olive Garden sized portion but the bowl was tiny and it was just one single layer of the pasta. I have gotten pasta here before and the portion was fine. Next time I will get the pizza for sure.

    I loved the atmosphere of Indaco and the food was really delicious. My only comment was the service was ok but the waiter did not go above & beyond. It was a Saturday night so maybe it was extra busy. Other than that, I would certainly go back again.

    Second visit. First time was far superior. Table smelled like wet washcloth. Dirty dishwater. Server was extremely busy. Had to wait a very long time to clear out plates. Waters wee empty. Other drinks empty for 20 minute. Espresso martini was tasting of old coffee. Food was just ok. Calamari was good. But everything else was meh. Too many great places in Charleston to warrant a third trip here.

    The vibe was happening, lots of people enjoying their meal. However, it was extremely warm and uncomfortable at our table. Not what we expected based on the pictures and reviews—a bit disappointed because the homemade pasta available was limited because the menu changes- which we didn’t know. The al dente pasta was just plain not cooked and hard too firm at the end. Pizza ends were a bit burnt- stayed in the wood-fire oven two minutes too long. We tried to like our experience and make excuses for it because of all of the hype, probably wouldn’t go back since there are so many options in Charleston. Maybe it wasn’t a good night. The wine selection and cocktails were good.

    Robert was very attentive and helpful regarding my kid’s allergy. I tried a new drink and it turns out I don’t like the flavor of Campari, so they took it off the bill which I appreciated. Menu changes often but the bolognese was so good that it should be an auto-order for anyone on the fence.

    Food is very good. Been a few times. Party of 8 for a birthday brunch. Not too busy but server was a bit robotic. By policy had to leave a 20% tip that she didn’t earn. Overall I like this restaurant but not sure if I’d go back.
