Italian
Located at Atherton Mill in Charlotte's historic South End neighborhood, Indaco (Italian for "indigo") serves Italian cuisine. Wood-fired pizzas, hand-crafted pastas, housemade salami and cured sausages fill the restaurant's menu which can be enjoyed family-style or a la carte. With an open kitchen, and a comfortable atmosphere, Indaco can seat approximately 85 guests inside for a casual night of food and drinks. The wine list is focused on affordable Italian varietals, the Gin & Tonic cocktail is on tap, and the fresh sodas are made in-house. Large windows fill the restaurant with natural light that reflects off the white subway tile, wood accents and butcher block tables. An open kitchen invites guests to keep an eye on the action while enjoying the sights and smells of Italian cooking. During warmer months, a 44-seat patio invites guests to dine al fresco.

    We had the best evening! My friend felt so special with a birthday card and gift at the table when we got there. They even had “Happy Birthday Sarah” on the menu; how cool! Michael was the best server! He was incredible at explaining the menu and was extremely helpful finding Sarah some dietary substitutes. We love having him serve us every time; no one like him!

    During our recent visit to the establishment, we were greeted by an exceptional waitress who was both knowledgeable and engaging, delivering a service that was undoubtedly top-notch. Despite her commendable efforts, the culinary experience was, regrettably, far from satisfying. This was surprising, given the numerous commendations I had received from friends about the restaurant's dinner offerings, which had set my expectations high for their brunch menu.The primary issue was with the meal itself. My companion and I opted for the burger and seasoned fries, specifying a medium cook for the burgers. Contrary to our order, we were served seasoned small potatoes instead of fries due to an unannounced shortage. Additionally, both burgers were markedly overcooked, reaching well beyond the requested medium to a point where they were charred, severely impacting the taste to the extent that the burgers were largely inedible.Upon raising this with our waitress, she was apologetic and promptly returned our meals to the kitchen for a redo. Unfortunately, the second attempt yielded no improvement, with the burgers once again being overcooked and tasting predominantly of charcoal. We ultimately decided to discontinue our meal. While we appreciated the waitress's diligent efforts to rectify the situation, the overall dining experience was significantly diminished by these culinary missteps.Understanding that the kitchen might have been under pressure to conclude brunch service in preparation for the evening menu, it remains crucial that such circumstances should not compromise the quality of food and dining experience. Our visit was well within the service hours, arriving at 2:15 PM for a service that ceases at 3 PM, which should have sufficed for a fulfilling meal without haste. Our meal was taken off the bill. I hope our return in the future is met with a better experience.

    Thanks for visiting us at Indaco- Charlotte. We're glad to hear that our waitress met your expectations. We apologize for the issues with your meals and the burgers being over cooked twice. Your feedback is valuable and we assure you that we're looking into this matter, we stay open at the bar between 3-5 pm so there should be no reason for any pressure in the kitchen. We use these moments as training opportunities and hope to learn and grow from it. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you better in the future. Thank you, John

    The service was well above average, and the food was delicious. But what I most want to compliment the restaurant on, is that they seemed to have anticipated, and managed, the number of reservations for Easter brunch. Rather than just taking everyone they could get (I know this place is busy in the evenings), I believe it was a conscious decision—it really made for excellent service.

    We've been here several times and are usually very happy with our food. This time was even better! Giles was a fantastic server and offered informed opinions. We tried a new wine on his suggestion and loved it. He also helped me decide to once again enjoy the roast chicken. The new, slightly creamy, marsala jus was delicious and the artichokes put it over the top.

That being said, I would love to invite you back in for dinner to give everything another try. I will send another email to you with my contact information. That for letting us know about this though, that is the only way we get better and grow. Thank you, John

    Horrible and we will NOT be coming back. I have been here numerous times with friends but this time coming with my partner and his family was not good. The waitress would disappear for over 30 min. Took over 35 min to get a drink made because someone made a mistake. Our food took forever and when it did come out the food was cold, the potatoes were raw. Also, my partner got a pasta dish with “sausage” and there was little to no sausage in it. Extremely frustrating when you want to have a nice get together but all the conversation you have in the restaurant was how poor everything is. Being busy is not an excuse.

    Today my husband and I celebrated 12 years of marriage at Indaco. The manager contacted me beforehand asking questions about our big day. When we got there, we had this beautiful table ready for us: flowers, little decor, a card signed but the restaurant personnel, the menu with a message to both of us. I was speechless!!! When I ordered the first antipasto, the server told us that was already in the making. I mentioned in our messages exchange that I was looking forward to their burrata! We not only got it as a gift but also a special burrata the chef spiced up only for us. We also got little drinks to cheer! Our servers were precious, friendly and kind. The food was delicious! My husband said indaco is his new favorite place. Thank you all for everything!!!

Our server Giles did an exceptional job managing our large group and ensuring accurate and efficient service.

    My husband and I shared our first Charlotte date-night at Indaco and thus decided to enjoy one of our last Charlotte date-nights at Indaco before our move back to Florida. Our server Kevin made our night extra special. He provided excellent service paired perfectly with an amazing meal. We shared our plans to move back to Florida with him and he truly made our night feel special. We felt like we were the only patrons in the restaurant. If you’re looking for a good date night spot, Indaco is the place!

    We went at 8pm on a Friday and they were out of the mussels, octopus and catch of the day. I’m gluten free and pescatarian, noted on the reservation, so that was unfortunate. The mains - four pasta dishes - took a long time to come out, but it was a lively atmosphere so we didn’t mind. Charcuterie board was sparse but good. All four pastas, including my gluten free pasta (I got the bucatini beet prep), and the burrata app, were truly excellent and felt made-from-scratch.

    We had a 5:15pm reservation today that I booked through OpenTable, wherein I specifically requested a certain table in the corner. We arrived early, right at 5pm when the dinner service opened- and they gave the table I requested to the one other couple in the restaurant. I told the hostess I had included this in the reservation notes and she just blinked at me and led us to another table. Fine. The nail in the coffin for me was the service. Our server started off nice enough and his attitude completely changed by the end of dinner. We had been waiting a noticeably long time for our pizzas and nicely asked him to check on it- instead of saying sorry for the wait, he told us there were a lot of people who ordered all at once and ours was coming. A good server would have proactively come over and said sorry we’re a little backed up tonight but your food is coming, and it would have been no big deal. Instead, not only did we have to ask, our food took another 10 minutes and he became clearly annoyed with us. When we asked for the check he slammed it down without a word and didn’t say thanks for coming in. Rude and dismissive service from start to finish and I will not be coming back- a shame since I did really enjoy Indaco in the past.
