Italian restaurant Indaco (40 West Broad Street) is the latest Charleston transplant to join the Greenville, South Carolina, culinary scene. The stunning new establishment opened just off Main Street on Friday, June 9.
The Indigo Road Hospitality restaurant launched on King Street in Charleston with the promise of wood-fired Italian favorites, and the Greenville location is no different. The menu offers pizzas, pastas, and plenty of antipasti. “There are some good Italian places around Greenville,” says Indaco chef Josh Begley, “But nobody really does pizza like we do pizza with our wood-fired oven. It’s not strictly Neapolitan — it’s slightly different. So that and a combination of our fresh pastas that we do in-house make us stand out. We want to give Greenville a different look on Italian food.”
One difference between the Indaco properties is Greenville’s emphasis on whole-hog butchery with pigs brought in from Providence Farm in Anderson, South Carolina. The kitchen utilizes every part of the animal by making everything from mortadella to head cheese to cured pork belly. With the extra space in the Greenville kitchen, the chefs have to room to bring in whole hogs and store them.
The large dining room is inviting with blond wood furnishings and splashes of indigo blue. There’s chef’s counter seating and a large outdoor patio with plenty of space for large gatherings and drinks when the weather is nice.
Indaco is open daily for dinner. Take a look around the space here.
