Finally made it over to DeSano's last night. I will start off by saying it was the best pizza we have had in quite awhile. My husband, son, and I shared the Diavolo and San Gennaro. Both were excellent. Those little calabrian peppers are fantastic. We could not stop eating them. I hope there is a place in town where I can buy some.
The woman working at the front counter was very friendly and funny. That being said, I do agree with the other comments on the strange layout. The drink options are strange. No wines by the glass or tap beer. Maybe something with their type of license? They had a pitcher of water in the dining room, but only one and it got empty quick and they kept having to fill it up. How about a couple of pitchers and maybe even leave some at the tables? I don't like the no plate thing and the flimsy, useless plastic utensils. Sorry, call me an amateur but I like to eat pizza with a knife and fork.
All in all, a good experience. It was definitely on the expensive side so if you are looking to feed your family for not too much money, then maybe save this place for another time. I would definitely bring my own wine next time. That seems to be the best way to go and balance out the higher priced pies.

It seems like a real jack-ass move to be raising prices already after just barely opening.
The cost is not in line with other taco joints when the portion is roughly half the size of White Duck, for example. How about showing us the inside of the burrito and not some mildly amusing label?
My husband would probably need to eat 5 of those affordable tacos to get full. Sorry, but $20 + for lunch seems highly excessive. They'll keep it packed with tourists so who cares what the locals think.
Doubt too many locals will venture all the way down East Bay where the tourists have taken over.
It's interesting to realize how expensive it is to eat in Charleston when you go out of town somewhere. We love going to Asheville. They also have a great restaurant scene, but noticeably less expensive than here. Interesting. It's like they're actually committed to serving locally sourced, farm to table food and it's not just some code for "we are going to gouge you". I work hard and have a family and sometimes I just want to go out on a weeknight and not have to cook. It's sucks you basically will spend a good $80 just to not have to do the dishes.
