I have had the pizza at Monza in the past which I liked but wanted to try something a little different this time so ordered the lasagna. Glad I did. Super tasty and a good sized portion.

Intimate and a local favorite that is always good. The pizza is Neapolitan style with a thin crust. Good craft beers too. A great place to run into while shopping King Street.

Stopped by for lunch while heading back to our hotel. We were just looking to share a pizza. They have wood fired thin crust pizza. We ordered a pizza with mushrooms and pepperoni and asked if they could put each on their own half. You would think this would be an easy request but we were told that they could... More

My husband and I recently had dinner here. The penne with vodka sauce and the pasta with bolognese sauce were both very good. However, I was annoyed by the fact that when I ordered the special salad of the day, I asked my waitress if I could substitute balsamic vinegar and oil for the apple cider vinaigrette, and she told...

I had dinner there last night with my daughter. We used to love this place, but had not been in a while and really looked forward to. What a DISAPPOINTMENT. The only thing consistent was the water, the ambiance, and the staff--which was never really good-We sat across from a pouting hostess the whole time--but we always returned because the... More

Wanted a pizza and requested a substitute veggie and was told we'd have to build one from scratch instead. Pizza was overly salty and not as good quality as when we went there on our last visit to Charleston. Most of the customers were having something besides pizza. We won't be back, since pizza is what we were looking for.

You just can't go wrong with Monza. Outstanding pizza and pasta. Fabulous salads. Nice wine and beer selection. Desserts and coffees lovely. Love the décor. We go often. Outstanding service.

The pizza and salads here are fantastic. Everything was so fresh and authentic. Great atmosphere and staff. I highly recommend if you're looking for more authentic pizza versus the chain places. The Gelato is pretty good too.

The food is definitely worth going here for, but the service leaves a little something to be desired.

My husband and I were visiting Charleston and were overcome with Pizza cravings. The hotel recommended Monza so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant was nice with a wide variety on the menu. We ordered Caesar Salads with that famous soft boiled egg on it and then some brick oven pizzas. The pizzas were very good –... More
