Le Pizzeria serves the best pizza in the Lowcountry --- if you try the The Margherita Pizza, with it's perfect blend of homemade sauce, buffalo mozzarella and basil, you'll be hooked. But this isn't just a pizza place. Le Pizzeria offers a huge selection of Italian entrees, sandwiches and desserts. Everything is so delicious it's difficult to pick a favorite! And there's a great vibe at Le Pizzeria. The owners and staff treat their customers like family members. Check it out!
Best pizza in the area...period!! So, glad they're in Summerville(2 locations) The cannolli is awesome too!
the colbert is the best. Their service is always pleasant and efficient. My only qualm is that I wish the delivered to more than just JI or open a 2nd location in WA.
I remember visiting Naples for a few days while bumming around Europe for a spell after college. The transit workers were on strike, and so my girlfriend and I were stuck there for a few days. We tried to make the most it, but I found Naples to be pretty unremarkable in many ways: dirty, chaotic, noisy, with shifty-eyed, angular inhabitants whose collective will seemed to be engaged in a slow and bitter crawl toward death, each minute spent furtively scheming a way to escape this blighted hell-scape of a city.
Naples is, however, at least in the popular imagination, the birthplace of pizza. There is even an official organization that sets out rules for "official" Neapolitan pizza such as it must only be cooked at a certain temperature, in a certain oven, can't be kneaded by any mechanical means, must use only "San Marzano" tomatoes, and so on. The "official" Neapolitan pizza comes in one of two varieties held up by purists as the sine non qua of fine pizza: the Margherita and the Marinara. The former consisting solely of tomatoes, basil, garlic, and olive oil the latter of marinara sauce, olive oil, mozzarella, and basil leaves. Neapolitans are famously fanatical about their local dish, and if you don't forcefully stop them will rant feverishly for hours about the ridiculous minutia that goes into creating the perfect pizza.
During my time in Naples I sampled a wide variety of such pizzas from the back alleyways to the tourist joints. In general, the pizzas were pretty good, if much different than American-style pies, but I couldn't help wondering if they were worth the endless amounts of hype I heard over the years about "true" Italian pizza.
I also couldn't help thinking that at that time I would have given anything to be having few drinks at a cool bar in the company of friends, my mind focused on enjoying myself rather than analyzing the extent to which the food I was eating conformed to some arbitrary set of culinary ideals or the dictates of Francois Simon. If that's what you're after I would stay away from this place. If, however, you want some really good, unique, reasonably priced pizza in town served by some of the coolest people in Charleston head to Park Pizza.
Lived in NYC for 6 yrs and still like Andlini's. No one is making Mr. Finley stay here. And it's obvious your not from here, because of the nasty attitude.
I have never had a bad pizza from this place. No matter how long you give them to make your pizza, it always takes 5 or 10 minutes once you show up. Who cares. It isn't fast food.
Are you people crazy? Andolini's is consistently good. How is it possible that they have one location? Because they've been good for years and are still good! Yes, there are lots of pizza places with good pizza around. Maybe you like another pizza better. But one star? I get whole pizzas from the West Ashley Andolini's regularly and have never had burnt pizza, have never been treated rudely, and have always gotten a great pizza.
Great pizza and great service!
The food @ Famulari's is fresh& very delicious! Also, their customer service skills earn them an A+ from the moment you walk in the door you are greeted with a warm,friendly smile& hello. It really makes you feel @home. I have been suggesting this restaurant to everybody I know. It's neat,tidy& even the restrooms are clean!
I have NEVER been disappointed eating @ Manza, and I have been here maybe a dozen times. Their food is da bomb.
Seriously cute wait staff too.
Everything on the menu is yummy. Everyone is VERY friendly, attentive, service is great.
Uses local produce.
This is a Charleston restaurant doin' it right.
5 stars easily.
Best pizza place downtown hands down. This is everything you think a pizza place should be and more. I have never had a bad slice from this joint, delivery or sit-in. It's cliche, but you really can taste the quality in the ingredients they make their pies with. These guys really got it right. Don't Change Anything.
I have to take that last review with a grain of salt. I could've attributed "Ceasar" to a typo, maybe. But "Danial Bould"-- really???? I'm not saying everyone should know who Daniel Boulud is, but if you're going to be snobby enough to drop the name, don't spell it like a kindergartener.
Anyway, I think Monza is great. Food is fresh and delicious, albeit a bit pricey. 4 stars, but I'll give it 5 to compensate for the ignoramus below.
Really great food - sandwiches, pizza, calzones - all delicious and served fast. Everything's really fresh and absolutely delicious.
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 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
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.
Quality gourmet; perhaps the best pizza. The whole wheat crust produces a denser, chewier crust that delightfully pairs with the many beers available. Toppings are generous and good quality. A wonderful product in a class by itself.
Upper crust. Brixx, EVO and Monza exist as a class of quality pizza that permits the diner to escape from the all too familiar NY style and franchise presentations.
This place is fantastic. They make everything from scratch. They even grow their own herbs. It is by far the best quality in Charleston. The staff is also great.
