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.

    Super friendly staff! My daughter's 10th birthday with family and we added 2x more people at the last minute, they were accommodating! We sat on the patio to accommodate my mother-in-law who is tiny and struggles getting up and out of higher chairs. They allowed us to open one of the windows for some fresh air. We were short on time, having a reservation at Charleston Place at 6pm, and they quickly took our drink and food orders, food came out quickly (3x pizzas, 2x kids spaghettis, 2x salads), we were able to enjoy our drinks and our meal in plenty of time as the food came out so quickly. Our server was a wonderful - respectful and kind (Mr. Loy). He was prompt and attentive. He even secretly brought ice cream and somehow found a candle to help us wish our girl a happy birthday. It was such a special evening and Indaco was a HUGE part of our experience! Food was equally delishous!!!

    From the time we entered the restaurant, to the time we left, everything was outstanding. The service was unmatched,, The Burrrata was absolutely the best and the venison osso bucca was delicious. Also, the bartender made perfect Vesper and Dirty martinis. Wish we lived closer so we could call this our local favorite! Cant wait to come back!!!

    They think they serve Italian food. They add tons of spice to the pizza and when I asked for extra cheese they added Parmesan. People in Italy would laugh out loud at this place.

    An underrated gem! This is not just "the pizza place down the street". For a moderately priced menu in a city full of expensive restaurants this is a smash hit! The prosciutto di parma appetizer is super yummy & the marinated olives are addictive. The roasted beet salad was show stopper for our table. Everyone said the same thing - Best Beet Salad they had ever had! Not an exaggeration either. I could have licked the plate, it was that good! The butternut Agnolotti was on point with the fall vibe & cooked to perfection. The restaurant has a cool industrial vibe with really friendly waitstaff. My only (super mild) side note it I suggest in the fall/winter trying to get a table away from the door. The breeze can be chilly. But that didn't take away from this being our #1 restaurant of the 6 we hit over our long weekend in Charleston!

    We booked a table the same day about an hour before we went. Our server was super pleasant and seemed to really enjoy his job. He was knowledgeable about the menu. There was just one occurrence when I was annoyed. I asked if one of the menu items could come without a horseradish gremolata and he first asked if it was a food allergy. We said no and he proceeded to tell me that it would effect the taste profile and that I should get something else because he wouldn’t want a guest to have any less of a dish. I felt uncomfortable still asking for the same dish without the item so I ordered something different. I would have preferred to have been granted my request of getting the dish that I wanted to try without the horseradish gremolata, since the server should have kept the guest happy instead of making them feel uncomfortable for asking about changing a dish. Overall, we would go back.

    First of all, of the hundreds of great restaurants in Charleston, this is my favorite. Last night was no exception. My husband and I spilt a Little Gem Lettuce salad, and although it was simple (basically a Caesar salad with Little Gem lettuce), it's perfect. We also split an order of focaccia bread with its ricotta and apple butter spreads and split an order of wood-fired brussels sprouts (crispy, not overcooked, though) with pickled onions and pine nuts. For entrees, my husband got what he orders every single time: Tagliatelle with pork, pepper, chives, parmesan, and topped with a local Storey Farms egg. For myself, I got spaghetti with little shrimp, pancetta, green olives, and lemon--so good! The service was superb. I love this place.
