Walking through the amazing Charlotte historic center you come to a restaurant, its essence is about racing. To my surprise I never expected a real Italian flavor in SC. Amazing and the service superb.

If you're looking for near-perfect wood-fired thin crust pizza, look no further, Monza is the place to be. They have a sleek but comfortable interior with attentive service and lots of choices on their menu. We ordered starter salads and shared a pizza, and everything...More

My boyfriend and I didn't intend on visiting Charleston for Italian food, but I'm glad we stopped in here when we had a craving. The Materassi pizza was simple and amazing and the Italian wedding soup was great as well.

My son got the lasagna and the rest got pizza. All were delicious!! My son wanted to try the pizza so we ended up passing everything around family style. Very good food and we loved the atmosphere! Would definitely go back!

We just arrived in town and needed lunch. I had the chopped salad, hubby had the antipasta. The salads were incredible! Very fresh and with good presentation. We liked it so much we ate lunch there the next day.

Small inviting restaurant. Does not take reservations. Ordered house chianti, chopped salad (yummy), naked pizza, Von Trips pizza, and tomato basil soup. All great! Server friendly and efficient. We come to Charleston often and we always make this restaurant a must!

We opted to eat outside which is a small area out back. Very quaint and cozy but the waitress forgot about us for a while. Pizza and salad very good. We would definitely return.

Pizza was great - lasagna was Excellent!! If you want a break from all the seafood offers in Charleston, this is a great alternative choice. Food was awesome!

Actually, the short, reasonable wait was part of the 'event' of the meal for us, actually.
