Italian
Located on Charleston's Upper King Street, Indaco (Italian for "indigo") serves rustic Italian cuisine. 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, the Negroni cocktail is 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.

    Spring onion pizza and mushroom pizza were pretty good. Margherita pizza sauce needed seasoning. Radiatori Nero pasta also lacked seasoning but the mushrooms did have some flavor and IMO overpriced. Very nicely decorated ambience.

    Stuck us at the first table right inside the front door. It was freezing every time the door opened. So we didn’t “get inside the restaurant”. Had the baby gem caesar which was good. The mushroom pizza it’s was ok; 5/10. The crust was burnt in many places. The grilled broccoli was 3/10. The carbonara was 6/10. The pork/bacon would have been better if not large chunks. Wine list meh. Several not knowledgeable to recommend a good red similar to California Pinot noir. Price was high even with half bottle of wine for what we got. Had high hopes from an influencer recommendation but fell short.

    Great food, the service and attention was perfect and the atmosphere was very good but a bit loud. We were seated next to the door and it was a bit too chilly for comfort. I had a red wine and it was good but served about 10F too warm; definitely not at cellar temperature. Despite these minor issues I would go back in a heartbeat.

    Started well. Appetizers were nice. Then 30 min between appetizers and main. Recommended gnocchi was cold and super dense when described as light pillow. Not nice at all. Server did remove from the bill. I hate that! Hate to send to food back but it was inedible. Margarita pizza was fine, leek pizza was not good. It was totallly overwhelmed by too many leeks. My daughter. Who’s vegetarian, barely ate 1 slice. Ordered a cocktail when food arrived. Drink arrived with the check. Have been many times but not in a year. Hope this isn’t how it is now. Very disappointing

    We had a great dining experience - from the meatball app to our delicious pastas to dessert and Amaro - everything was exceptional. Our service was impeccable - Madison was terrific at her job. The whole team provides great service, one of the managers stopped by our table serval times, the other staff members all pitch in - a great way to run a restaurant. A+Plus!
