Re: “Zombie Bob's

Huge slices, crisp, flavorful crust, delicious sauce, and overflowing with molten cheese. Pair with the most artfully crafted beer in Charleston and you're winning all day.

Re: “Coastal Crust

Coastal Crust was the worst decision we made for our wedding. While their food is good, their customer service and follow through on contracted items is non-existent. We had specific requests (written into our contract) to make the day truly "ours". Brian never took care of any of them and months before the wedding our planner began asking about the status with little to no response and promises that were broken regularly. While we negotiated a rate due to the fact that we were providing a few items when the contract was originally procured, Brian continued to fight us when he couldn't provide what he promised which required us to provide even more (at retail) just 2 months before the wedding. We came close to firing him at this time and he renegotiated another rate during a meeting when he was asking us to rethink our position. Reluctantly we stuck with him, giving him the benefit of the doubt...big mistake. He took notes (again) and still didn't complete our wine tasting as requested (wine types were not correct again), not to mention he was late and we tasted wines while batting away a barrage of fruit flies in his location. He continued to falter on his promises and 10 days before the wedding we were told he raised the rates and we were basically told we could pay them or find someone else. In addition, 3 days before the wedding we found out that one of the specified beers he was supposed to be providing was not secured and we had to select something else, again, something we ended up procuring and supplying ourselves at retail. Now on to our wedding day, Brian and his team did show up (yes, sadly this was a concern of ours at this point). The guests enjoyed the appetizer that was provided and while we had specifically requested service for the bride and groom while we took photos during cocktail hour we only received a beer from one of our groomsmen when we asked for it. Dinner service starts and we (the bride and groom) are standing in a line of about 20 people and Coastal Crust ignored the fact (trust me, I wasn't hard to miss in my large dress)...our wedding planner ended up getting our food and serving us herself. Later we found out that Brian did not secure the one local craft beer he was supposed to and did not provide the domestic beer options requested for our two picky guests that were in the wedding party. In addition, he continued to charge us for a second appetizer that I realized was never provided after quizzing my guests days after the wedding. Brian would not provide a new invoice removing the items that he did not provide and wanted us to pay in full; to which we refused. We offered what we felt was a fair amount given the circumstances, lack of service / product, and the amount of stress he caused. During these emails after our wedding, Brian was everything but professional or polite and in his own roundabout way called us names and accused us of basically stealing from him (because we weren't willing to pay for things he didn't provide). At one point he even told us we were the worst decision he had made - believe me, we felt the same but never said this to him and remained professional and were willing to go to court over his actions during the course of our wedding. Hiring Coastal Crust still leaves a bad taste in my mouth and I barely even ate his food and only drank the beer/wine that we provided ourselves. If you want a vendor that you must babysit and still get things wrong, Coastal Crust is your go to.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

Decent pizza, although it did not dethrone D's as the best pizza in Chraleston. Fast service, our pie came out super quickly. The space inside is nice but empty as we were the only patrons in the place.

Just FYI for anyone who heard otherwise: DeSano is NOT BYOB. You cannot bring beer, only wine (???). We found this out after showing up with our own beer. So be forewarned: it's BYOW, not BYOB.

Re: “Monza

DeAl's gets a lot of love and deservedly so. But every time I eat at Monza, I walk away satisfied and routinely ask myself the question "why don't I eat here more?"

For a break from the PBR culture --- and obviously a different style of pizza...head on over and try it out if you're new in town (or, if you're like I was a year or so ago and just haven't given it a chance yet.)

I would even go as far to say that this is probably the most underrated spot on Upper King and has been for some time now. The fare/atmosphere/what's on tap isn't sexy as the newer spots, but it's overall solid.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

Try this Corn Continental pizza which incorporates lots of Indian spices while still staying true to the concept of Italian pizza.Tandoori Pizza is an exciting way of preparation and presentation. It really melts your mouth just looking at it.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

Went there for the first time this weekend for lunch and was very pleased. The pizza is fantastic, perfectly cooked, authentic, delicious. I really don't understand the reviewers saying that the layout or ordering process is confusing. It is abundantly clear that you order at the counter when you walk in. I like the element of surprise, seeing the ovens blazing as you come around the corner. We will definitely be repeat customers.

Re: “Grimaldi's

Great Pizza, but the menu is a little limited. I wish there were a few more options for appetizers and salads, but otherwise great pizza, and great atmosphere!

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

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.

Re: “Coastal Crust

Coastal Crust did an amazing event at our house for the holidays! Their food is fantastic and the staff is exceptional. They made this event so easy by handling every last detail. Can't wait to do our next event with them!

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

When I think Neapolitan pizza, a thin crispy crust comes to mind but this is not what I got here. The service was good and the pizzas came quick, but our pizza crust was barely cooked--almost soggy. Not impressed at all! Will not being going back.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

I shared a couple of pizzas with two friends recently and they were intersting artisan pizzas and the setting at the big tables was nice. I will go again - price was on higher side but all and all I found it to be a good experience.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

The joint needs a lot of work...Pizza isn't the best....Who can judge pizza? Everyone likes something different....They make it too difficult to eat in.......They cannot cook a pizza in 60 seconds, if you need to eat it....

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

I thought this place would be awesome because it smelled so good inside and its off the beaten path away from the typically overpriced restaurants you find downtown. Pizza was okay, a bit burnt, but was way overpriced for the location. You can't buy pizza by the slice and you can't remove any ingredients so don't go here if you are a vegetarian. When I asked why you couldn't add/remove ingredients the manager or owner said it was complicated ... ? They should do a better job explaining this one if my pizza can't be free to be the pizza it wants to be. The girl at the front desk also joked that all the ovens have different "personalities" some like to burn the pizza, some undercook it, and some are just right. I got the burnt one.

The layout was awkward and lacked atmosphere. Waited 10 minutes for the girl at front desk to make a cannoli and then she forgot to make it with the other customers cannoli's. All and all it left a lot to be desired, like my cannoli that I didn't get.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

The layout is indeed confusing, there needs to be a giant "ORDER HERE" sign when you first walk in. But the service was GREAT, from the front of house to back of house. Pizza was really, really great too - and I personally prefer a really thin crust but this regular crust was excellent. I had the Verdura, if you're a veggie lover this will be right up your alley. Great for large groups and kids.
