Re: “Monza

I've eaten at Monza's at least two dozen times since they've opened. I consider myself a pizza snob and, being from NY, truly prefer the NY style pizza. However, their pizza blew me away. The ingredients are always fresh, plentiful without being overwhelming and inventive. I've always been treated well by the staff. Case in point: about a year ago we took some friends there. One of the waitstaff accidentally brushed our table and knoced a slice to the floor. Management was not only apologetic about the incident, but they baked an entire pie, gratis, to replace the one slice. Now that is how a restaurant should be run! Their salads are simple, but good and perfect to share.

Re: “La Pizzeria

I love this restaurant. I have spent years working in 4 and 5 star places, and for me this is what it's all about.

Re: “Monza

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.

Re: “Monza

Not that impressed and very rude. When I ordered the "build your own pizza" and asked that the pepperoni be left off half the pizza (for my kids) i was told they would not do that, they are very strict. I said I would pay for the topping just dont put it on the whole pizza. They managed to do that some how(you get 6 slices, one large pepperoni on each slice, do the math) My pesto pizza w/the local shrimp again skimpy on the not so fresh shrimp. My husbands Ceasar very underdressed to the point neither of us was sure it had dressing at all. No problem they were happy to bring out extra dressing and actually charge us for it. We were never told the specials and felt that anything we asked for was an inconvience to them. The dough is thin and tasted great in the wood fired oven. The pizza toppings are run of the mill, nothing really creative and certainly not worth the attitude. Who do the think they are Danial Bould in New York? I'll take any snobby overpriced New York restaurant with good food, or the very laid back Mellow Mushroom Pizza over this place any day.

Re: “La Tela Pizzeria

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!

Re: “Andolini's Pizza

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!

Re: “Paisano's Pizza Grill

Really great food - sandwiches, pizza, calzones - all delicious and served fast. Everything's really fresh and absolutely delicious.

Re: “Monza

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.

Re: “La Tela Pizzeria

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

Re: “La Pizzeria

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.

Re: “Famulari's

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.

Re: “EVO Pizza

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.

Re: “Norm's Pizza, Subs & Grill

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.

Re: “Norm's Pizza, Subs & Grill

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

Re: “Mia Pomodori

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.
