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.

I had some truly delicious meals during a four day visit to Charleston. This meal, while not awful, just didn’t compare. I had much better Italian food at Le Farfalle. The ricotta gnocchi here aren’t nearly as good as those at FIG. The service was a bit slow and inattentive.

Posting this after the second time I've been here.

The first time I visited Indaco it was with a large party for a bachelorette and they exceeded all expectations with great food and service! We got the family style meal option and it was more than enough food and every item was great! Bring your colleagues, family and friends!

4 months later I took my foodie boyfriend here for his birthday and again the food/service was amazing! Especially the manager Trevor, who went above and beyond for great service, and he certainly knows his wine and food! In addition Maggie was great! 100 percent recommend if you're in town! You can't go wrong with any option on the menu, especially the black spaghetti! Indaco is definitely a hidden gem! We will be back soon!

Order the tasting menu for the table, you won’t be disappointed. Everything the server brought out was wonderful. Loved the vibe and the patio at Indaco. Our server was spot on, friendly and very knowledgeable of all the food he brought out. Only comment is, we wished the food wouldn’t have been brought out so fast. We will definitely be back.

I loved the vibe. Next time would definitely sit at the bar. Happy Hour ONLY at the bar. Bib salad good but very spicy dressing. Need more salad choices. Mushroom pizza was good . Interesting wine list but very limited by the glass and pricy.

Indaco is our favorite downtown restaurant. It is consistently awesome. The crispy artichokes are our favorites. Service is always outstanding and the ambiance is fun, but not too noisy.

As a native Charlestonian I am often overwhelmed by all of the restaurant choices here. Indaco is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Charleston. We always order the Chef’s Choice where a three course meal is brought out. This provides an incredible sampling of full portion appetizers, main dishes and desserts for a great price. Our server was professional but not intrusive. We took her suggestion for an amazing wine. Be sure to make a reservation for this top notch experience!

Great location/vibe, but I found the food to be mediocre at best. My pasta was too salty, my husband's gnocchi was kinda tough and the crab was overpowering. My mother's pizza had an overpowering pickled onion topping as well. I've been here before and had better experiences, so I'm hoping it was just an off night for Indaco.

Tried Indaco for the first time moving our daughter out from College of Charleston.... she likes Italian, so this seemed like a good pick...was able to walk there from her dorm... ambiance seemed fine... we had Adam as our server.... we knew they made their own pasta, so we expected it might take a little longer than usual... we ordered the fried artichokes with champagne sauce - which was very good (one in our party is allergic to the normal walnut sauce),,, the artichokes came out at a reasonable time, but we then had to wait another 35 minutes for our entree's to come out... at no point did Adam come by to give us any explanation on this... rather, we tried to get his attention, a few times and he walked right on past out table without acknowledging us... I was just about to see the manager/hostess and then our entree's arrived... when they did I asked for another club soda - which never arrived until all of us had finished our meals... all meals were terrific, though I will say portions were on the smallish side... despite that, a couple of us did take home small portions, but we had to remind Adam after paying for our bill that we wanted the take out items - which he had to retrieve... not sure we would attempt again...

They double charged for my meal and didn’t offer any sort of compensation for their mistake. The food was fine. My dish was a little fishy.

The perception of value for the money probably depends on what you order,, but at our table the quality was uneven, service was perfunctory,, no bread served at outset, and while I'd like to give it another try when I'm back in Charleston, I wasn't as satisfied as the online presentation would lead one to expect. Wine was also over-priced for the variety by the glass.

Indaco is our favorite restaurant in Charleston. Service is first rate and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The chef, Michael Holler, is thoughtful and inventive in his cuisine. The general manager, Trevor Stough, will make sure that you are well cared for. For the most part, the bar and service staff have been stable and return visits are greeted with hugs all around. Food can only be so good and there is a lot of good food in Charleston. Indaco has the whole experience: great food, great ambience, and great service.

I dined with a couple friends here for the first time. The food was very good. Service was slow. We waited to order dessert for over 30 minutes and at that point we just asked for our bill. It was very loud on the patio and inside- not the place to go for conversation!

We loved this restaurant. I would give it it high praise in all areas. The service was friendly and attentive. The wine list was very Italian which made for an interesting challenge to pick just the right one. A taste or two made choosing much easier. The food was outstanding! The mussels were shelled for me and placed in a jar of delicious olive oil and spice combination. The beef tartare was not run of the mill. It was excellent. The meatballs (polpette) were perfectly prepared accompanied by a wonderful sauce. The margherita pizza was also great and big enough to take so to go and the fried artichokes were a great way to start the meal. Everything was carefully prepared, a twist from ordinary, and filled with flavor. Additionally we dined on Sunday evening so wines were half off. We got a really nice bottle for about half the price. I can't wait to go back.
