Indaco Ratings and Reviews

Our waiter, Trevor, was friendly and efficient. The ambience would've been fantastic had we been seated elsewhere. The high-top table wasn't my favorite but I try not to ask for re-seating. There were 3 men talking to two women at the bar that were interrupting our conversation because they were standing literally inches away from us. On the other side, patrons and servers were trying to squeeze by since the bar folks were blocking that access aisle. Perhaps an observant manager would've guided their guest away from our table and the walkway but that didn't happen. Therefore, do not accept seating at a bar high-top. The prosciutto di parma was fantastic. The margarita pizza had many good things going for it but in the end it was much saltier that any I'd had at other restaurants.

Coming from Connecticut, it's hard to find good pizza/flatbread in South Carolina. My sister has lived there for 20 years and I can count on one hand (really, two fingers) the number of places that offer decent pizza. Pontiac House of Pizza (aka PHOP) in the Columbia area, and now Idaco. We had the brussel sprout pizza (really more of a flatbread) and I was really impressed.

The pizza and the pasta are always outstanding; sad to say, so is the room noise. Plan to attend with people who tell boring, repetitive stories so that it won't matter that you can't hear them. The server had his hands full with a number of large parties -- our service level suffered accordingly -- but in general, this is a good restaurant that delivers good value.

Great restaurant for any occasion! We sat outside on a beautiful fall night. Wait staff was professional and friendly. Food was amazing. The bolognese was some of the best I've had. Portion sizes are perfect. Will definitely go back when in charleston.

My husband had the chicken which looked raw and was most un appetizing. I had the potato knoccki which had a questionable meat sauce that was very unappealing. My salad was delicious and a friend enjoyed her brussel sprouts. Really disappointed. Then to top it off, we got booted in the lot next door. Beware.. only one small sign. Make sure you use the valet.

I gave Indaco 5 stars in every category because they wouldn't let me give it 6 stars. I go every time I'm town and it's stellar every time with different choices on the menu and a staff that will accommodate you however you need, like for my vegetarian daughter.

We ordered only an appetizer and a pizza--not a full meal. Both were put on the table at the same time. Neither was as flavorful or as outstanding as we had expected from other reviews. We did make our feelings known and they did comp the beer. I think the main courses would have been more interesting and there were some very chef-inspired combinations. Diners should focus on those rather than expecting a unique or truly special pizza.

Had a really amazing tie at Indaco. Our server (who's name is unfortunately escaping me at the moment) was amazing and really really enjoyed out experience. The food was incredible, and we loved sitting on the patio. It was our last night in Charleston and far and away our best meal - quality and value wise. Will definitely be back.

Our experience at Indaco started off well. The brussel sprouts pizza and radicchio butternut squash salad were outstanding. It unfortunately fell apart from there. Our two pasta entrees took FOREVER to come out, and when they did they were really quite tasteless. At $27 for a crab pasta dish and $23 for what is essentially pasta carbonara, I expect it to be really delicious. I would have spoken to the waitress about making our entree right, but sadly she never came back to ask how our food was, not even when she brought the check and 90% of the pasta was uneaten. Based on appetizers I would have given a glowing recommendation, but the disappointing pasta dishes and lackluster service really disappointed.

While Indaco had to unexpectedly close due to a tragedy in their family, I know the experience they provide is always perfect. I did not dine there the night of my reservation but wanted to make sure I provided feedback to share about my consistent, delicious experience. The burrata, flatbreads, and tagliatelle are among our favorite dishes. We cannot wait to come back and hope that you have had time to head after the tragedy that impacted your team.
We love Indaco!

I don't understand the poor reviews they had. We had a wonderful table, amazing server and great food. Menu is extremely creative without being off putting. Italian in style without having "spaghetti and meatballs" on the menu. Our server was a pure professional as was all of the people that came to our table. Our anniversary was enhanced by going here for dinner. Thank you Indaco.

Absolutely fabulous food experience and great atmosphere. Wine list a little hard to decipher; could use details on each and would be nice if they offered a few wines other than all Italian. We started with a charcuterie tray of prosciutto, regiano parmigiana, peaches and flatbread with a honey drizzle. Refreshing! As main course, Tonnarelli, was our choice. The best homemade pasta we've tasted in quite some time tossed with light cream and mint and topped with lump crab. Add "Indaco" to your Charleston SC "to do".

Our server, Nate, was very helpful recommending his favorite dishes which were all stellar. Pickled shrimp were outstanding as well as the tuna We also had the garganielli and for a person who doesn't like lamb it was amazing. The fresh mint and roasted tomatoes were the perfect compliment. Next time, we save room for dessert!!

Wonderful birthday meal at Indaco. Service was attentive, atmosphere was great (even early on a Sunday night). Great addition to growing dining scene on Upper King St. Took advantage of fantastic half price wine special to taste a Barolo that ordinarily would only be for special, special occasions. Loved the pickled shrimp appetizer and the goat cheese salad to start.

Indaco proved to be a great Italian gem in downtown Charleston. We have a small child and don't get many date nights, but we decided to give Indaco a whirl and it didn't disappoint. Their meatballs were amazing as a starter, the pasta with crab along with the rabbit were incredibly mouthwatering and the dessert pulled everything together. Great wine selection at reasonable prices. Thanks for a wonderful dinner!

Our server and her helper were outstanding. The server was able to describe the dishes perfectly. The polpette were outstanding as was the bursts. Some of the main dishes were not as hot as they should be, but the flavor was very good.

Great spot on upper King. Staff friendly and welcoming, great service, food and atmosphere. The cauliflower appetizer was an unexpected and delicious start and the crust on the pizza was divine! Thanks for a great evening...
