Italian: Rev it up! That's the theme at Monza, a small, yet bold wood-oven pizzeria that boasts a menu of creatively topped Neapolitan-style pizzas, traditional pastas, meal-worthy salads and Italian red and whites. Named for "La Pista Magica," a famed luxury racetrack in Italy, this Upper King Street fixture glows with neon red, black and white accents, perhaps a nod to the checkered finish line flag of the Monza track. The thin, crispy pizzas at Monza, each bearing the name of a celebrated Italian race car driver, are satisfyingly full of flavor and crunchy texture. Included among the menu's star studded lineup is the Ciccio four-cheese, the Fangio, made with housemade sausage and jalapenos, and the Ronnie Peterson, loaded with oven-roasted chicken breast, pesto and artichokes. Not up to follow the footsteps of these racers and their namesake pizzas? Opt to "Take the Wheel," and create your own legendary pizza.
Local Expert Clare Sweeney Says:
Italian: "Satisfy your pizza cravings and enjoy Charleston's atmosphere by night: ask for a table in Monza's intimate courtyard patio!"
Best for Italian Because: Monza does pizza the wood-fired, Neapolitan way, importing flour and yeast from Italy, all while taking advantage of fresh local ingredients!
