Wow, three of us went there for lunch today and it was incredible! the food was so obviously homemade. We started out with appetizers (calamari & garlic bread), then we chose the specials of the day (lobster manicotti & cavaletti w/homemade sausage), then dessert (tirimisu, cannoli, and gelati). Yum, yum, and yum! The service was great--bartendar kept asking if things were good as well as our server and other servers. The homemade pasta and bread was mouth watering. They have a nice wine & beer selection as well. We cannot wait to go back with more friends! Thank you!
I have been patronizing the downtown and WA locations since they each opened. I love pizza, and like to spread my pizza money around- Athens, D'allesandros, Monza, Mellow - always looking to satisfy the NY pizza craving. The last couple of times I have tried the Ando WA location, the food has been OK - not good or great. With this in mind, around 9PM I phoned in a take out order to the WA location. I was told it would be ready in 15 minutes. I gave them 20. When I showed up, the pizza had not been made yet. There was no one in the place, but they insisted they had been "busy". OK- I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Waited about 10 minutes and the pizza was ready. Something seemed different about the way it looked from how I remembered it in the past. It was a mess, and there seemed to be missing cheese. I was told by the guys behind the counter that they had put the toppings on first and then the cheese- "so it would cook faster"! Well, the pizza tasted horrible, and was undercooked. A truly disappointing meal, made more disappointing by the memories of what once had been. Andolini's used to be the best pizza in Charleston. After my most recent experience, I would say it is the worst!
Really great food - sandwiches, pizza, calzones - all delicious and served fast. Everything's really fresh and absolutely delicious.
Really want to try this place but I have to say I am put off when it says on the menu "no substitutions, etc...integrity of the pizza.....blah blah blah". Pizza is the one thing that you should be able to get however the hell you want. I hate to think i'll have to beg for a pizza with just pepperoni on it.
I worked there for a while...six beautiful months...delicious food, wonderful people...
I definitely left a piece of my heart there...can't wait to go back!
Miss ya all guys!!!
Best pizza in Charleston!
Great Italian family restaurant with wood fired oven pizzas; excellent fresh salads,
and home-made pasta. Excellent table service, with knowledgeable servers and
wonderful wine/beer list. Don't miss desserts! Bill, Kiawah Island
Best pizza in Charleston, HANDS DOWN. Fresh toppings, imported cheese, homemade sauce. Wish they were still open for lunch all week, but at least they open at 3 so you can get a pie on the way home from work.
We ordered for delivery and "built our own" Chicago deep dish with spinach, black olives and meatballs. It arrived hot, which is always a bonus, since pizza always tastes just a little different when you reheat it. This is our new favorite pizza place - - the crust was delicious, the sauce and toppings were fresh, tasty and generous. Our order cost us $28.00 total, but there was enough pizza to last several days because just one slice of this stuff is enough for a meal.
I don't know about "best pizza in charleston" but that's only becuase I haven't tried it all yet! Went in for lunch and ordered the margherita pizza. It was delicious! I moved to Charleston from DC and these pies definetly rival the famous 2 Amy's in DC. EVO is definitely worth it for the pizza. Also got the arugula salad with procuitto; light, delicious, perfect starter to the thin italian style pies.
I always enjoyed Norm's Pizza. A cool little neighborhood spot with a nice laid-back vibe. I too was disappointed when I found out they were shutting down. I'm excited that they are back and with a liquor license, eating a big norms pizza is just not the same without a nice pitcher of beer.
The popular Thursday night pizza special is back but different with the new ownership. Instead of half off any large pizza with limited hours its now $7.99 for a one-topping large all day long.
I heard the rumors that Norm's was shutting down and was upset that one of downtowns most iconic pizza places was closing. Imagine my surprise when I drove by, saw the open sign and found out NORM is back. The original owner that opened the place in 1979 is back and running the place again. I was also told by Norm's very nice daughters the situation with the beer liscence (they are getting it March 1st). The food is great and I love that the entire family is working there. You can't find a better mom and pop place to dine at. They get to know you and what you like to order. I personally LOVE their customer service. It is rare to get such great treatment at restaurants
went for lunch it took 1 hour to get my pizza husband had sandwich the meat smelled bad pasta salad was not fit to eat was very very old what has happened to this place i would never go again no manger to help us out whanted me to pay for this the must be crazy
Had some Park Pizza last night...DAMN it was good. The owner is supper nice, they were busy but it didn't take long to make and it was delicious!
I really cannot say enough about this place. Pretty much the best tomato sauce in Charleston, including Il Cortile, Fulton Five, and Lucca. The pizza is second-to-none: made to order, handled with care, nothing but fresh ingredients. The stromboli and calzones are also better than any I've had in the city. This place is a gem and I hope it stays open (maybe even upgrades to a larger location) for a long time. A must-have.
If you want pizza in Mt. P, look no further. Their pasta, dessert, calzones, baked sandwiches also are terrific. My previous review stands, now with star power!
Very good pizza.. Above most in the area.
Best Bianco slice I've ever had. The Margherita slice was pretty good also. Paid about $11 for two slices and a drink.
I think the comments are a tad bit extreme. The chairs around the tables are uncomfortable, however, the bar stools are great. The pizza is wonderful, especially "The Joe". You can find anything to complain about if you want to. I do hope that the owners will pay a little bit more attention to the service. You have an excellant opportunity going for you. The menu is delicious. You tend to have a dissappearing act going on there though. Sometimes it seems like it may be a "Serve Yourself" bar.
