Families can agree on eating pizza for dinner, even if they're divided about whether the moon is a satellite or the earth’s malformed twin. Bring the clan together under a blanket of cheese with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of hand-tossed pizza, calzones, and drinks at Andolini's Pizza, with five convenient locations.
With its sauce-smothered triangles voted Best New York Style Pizza by readers of the Charleston City Paper, Andolini's wins hearts and tongues with a full menu of thin-crust pies, hearty calzones, and other casual Italian feasts. House-made dough cradles layers of carefully crafted tomato juice, fresh-grated mozzarella, and more than 15 possible toppings, creating foldable slices that channel the Big Apple's charm without subjecting diners to Miss Liberty's stone-cold attitude. Custom disks, available by the 19-inch round or slice, fly into hungry mouths plain ($14.95/pie; $2.50/slice) or tastefully dressed in edible accessories ($2.25/pie, $0.50/slice). Specialty pizzas are also available, such as the greek pizza, loaded with sliced tomatoes, banana peppers, and feta cheese ($22.50/pie), and Edie's Favorite ($22.50/pie, $9/calzone), inviting teeth to slam dunk meatballs, garlic, and mushrooms between sessions of dribbling.
A draft Bud or Bud Light accompanies two large cheese slices in one of Andolini's daily specials ($7), giving lovers of hops two things to hop over. Sweet teeth can tango with freshly made cannoli ($2.95 for three).
Andolini’s Pizza has earned continuing popular acclaim from readers of the Charleston City Paper, who rank it the best New York Style Pizza in the city year after year. The Andolini’s team bakes dough, grates cheese, and makes sauces in-house. They sell hand-tossed pizzas by the slice alongside whole pies festooned with traditional toppings such as Italian sausage, anchovies, and mushrooms. Avid patrons can also purchase an Andolini’s t-shirt to proclaim their allegiance to the restaurant, or simply smear a slice of cheese and pepperoni directly onto their own shirt.
