Indaco Ratings and Reviews

We were excited to try a new restaurant in Charleston for our romantic Valentine's getaway. Indaco was promising from a location and ambiance standpoint, but our experience was less than satisfying. We were not offered bread or anything else when we sat down, which we found odd in an Italian restaurant. My husband ordered pizza and I was struggling with my decision. The waiter sold me on gnocchi with crab and truffles. The pizza was good, however, the gnocchi portion wasn't consistent with a price of $28. We felt that the service was rushed. Our entree arrived shortly after our cocktails. Overall, the food and pace of service were not consistent with the price of the evening. We wouldn't go back for anything other than happy hour.

I'm so sad. This was my favorite restaurant but tonight a waiter named Nate and a manager named Trevor have changed that. Nate was rude, condescending, and told us that we needed to order everything at once because they had a 12 top and a 14 top that needed to be seated. What? When I told him I wasn't ready to decide on all my courses he walked away while I was talking to him. Our wine was corked and Trevor treated us like fools for objecting to it.
I could give additional details but it would just be more of the same. Couldn't wait to leave. Nate is bad for business and Trevor isn't much better. And we live here. Local. Pizza is good. Be ready for bad attitudes.

Great spot with reasonably priced Italian food
Service is fantastic , the space is small but unique ...reminds reminds you of a New York City meat-district kind of restaurant with no noise
I believe the pasta's are homemade ...sit by the kitchen if you can to watch the chefs prepare the food... it's quite entertaining

I have dined at Indaco many times. The food is consistently delicious. I typically order their fish of the day and occasionally order the pasta. I always order the burrata which is served with the most delicious light and airy flatbread. We ordered the burrata this evening and it was served with a slightly burnt sub roll which was sliced in half. The entire presentation was compromised and the dish was not appetizing at all. I asked the waitress about the flatbread and she replied that they change sometimes and the flatbread might take a few minutes. The situation was rectified and the subroll was replaced with the flatbread. I was with friends that had not been to the restaurant before and was a little embarrassed because I had raved about the restaurant. I was worried that the entrees may also be compromised because it was a busy Saturday night but the fish and lamb were delicious. Service is polite.

I've heard a lot about Indaco and we finally made our way there for an early Sunday dinner. The food was great - marinated olives, burrata, pappardelle and zeppole for desert. Even better, Sunday is 1/2 price wine night and the wine list is excellent. Griffin was our server and he was excellent - knowledgeable and helpful which rounded out a wonderful evening...we'll be back!

This was our third time at Indaco and overall it was disappointing. We sat on the patio, which has no ambience. We were brought NO BREAD or any kind of complimentary hors-d'oeuvres to munch on while we waited for our first course - Really, in an expensive Italian restaurant, you would think they would bring you at least a piece of garlic bread. I had the meat balls for a first course, which were delicious, but my husband's marinated olives were not pitted - a bowl of very small olives that there was no way to eat politely since they all had a pit which had to be spit out. Awkward. I would really have liked a salad, but they had nothing except kale. An Italian restaurant that doesn't have a Caprese salad? My main course was the lamb shank, which was OK but not outstanding (other places in Charleston do this better, like Pano e Vino) . My husband had a pasta entree which was likewise good but not outstanding. We paid $180 for the two of us ($60 was a bottle of very good Italian red wine, which WAS worth it!)- and overall we did not feel it was worth it. We are local, and there are other places where we feel we get a better value. To be fair to our waitress, we did have very good service....

My daughter asked for a nice restaurant week dinner for her birthday. Induce had a wonderfully full menu. We've been here a few times and will return. The back porch is lovely as is he interior. Our waitress was clearly discontent but trying. So service was functionally good but nothing you could relate to or rave about. The food was good. The spot's valet is the bomb. We had fun!

It's just good food. Sat at bar, service was great and food was good. It was a Tuesday so just perfect amount of people in restaurant. It was restaurant week which made the value over the top as I felt they didn't decrease portions like a lot of places do. I usually avoid restaurant week as I like to order what I want. The whole menu was available! It will now be on our regular rotation of go to places.

Love Indaco! Excellent food, great service and a warm and very welcoming atmosphere!
The Burrata, The Ricotta Toast, The Black Papardelle with the Egg were all different and well prepared and presented! Our Waiter, Nate, was awesome and very patient and accommodating!
Can't wait to return!

Went for restaurant week to try Indaco for the first time.. Our food was absolutely delicious!! But our service was not great as we felt rushed almost the entire time...
The beginning was all fine and dandy but during our appetizer course (that we were thoroughly enjoying), our server essentially told us we shouldn't eat the remaining of our appetizer because we had "a lot of food coming." So fine, we agreed to let him box it, so he took the remaining food and then immediately took mine & my friends plate not even giving her a chance to tell him she still wanted her last few bites. Again, whatever, fine.. "We have a lot of food coming." Because he took it away, we thought we were about to receive our meal. But it didn't even come for about another 5-10 minutes (so what was his rush?). After our meal was over, we got another round of drinks to have with dessert. As both were put down on our table and before we even took a bite/sip, he put our check down.... We both just sat there very awkwardly and confused.. Then as we were eating our desert, he tried to take the check away twice (rushing us even more) when we hadn't even put any form of payment yet.
I totally would've understood it more if they were just about to close or if there were no empty tables and a line at the door for a wait, but none of those were the case...
All in all the food is great and I will definitely be back, just hoping for a better more relaxed experience next time.

Tried Indaco for the first time last night, and now I have spent the day asking myself why we haven't been there before. will not have that regret again, will add it to the "got to go back" list.
ps. we were lucking enough to be there for Restaurant Week specials, I have been to several restaurants for RWeek, but the value that Indaco offers is over the top, hands down the best value in town for me. add it to your list for this week, before they catch on.

Overall a decent place.
Upon arrival we were seated on high top tables between the restaurant tables and the bar: it was a very confined space with people around the bar area constantly pushing against our chairs, which was very uncomfortable. This also contributed to the restaurant being WARM. Very WARM. I took off my sportscoat, and even though I only wore a long-sleeved collar shirt I was feeling unseasonably hot.
On the positive side the food was lovely - simple yet sufficient. Pizzas are definitely to share as they are rather large. Decent service.

We had read good reviews so decided to check it out during Restaurant Week. The staff was so attentive and amazing. The food was fabulous..the value during restaurant week was amazing! You order off their regular menu...same portion sizes, same menu. The bartender had given us great advice that a table of 4 should order 3 apps and one pizza for our first course and then each order a different 2nd course and share. We ended up ordering 2 pizzas and 2 apps. So much food! So good! We were pleasantly surprised by how wonderful everything was. Ended up taking food home, we were so full. The pizzas are fabulous. Loved the sausage pizza and the Brussels sprouts pizza. Pastas was amazing. We will definitely go back.
