Best Pizza – Traditional

D’Allesandro’s Pizza

Readers Pick

Ask anyone who’s spent any time in Charleston and they’ll tell you that D’Allesandro’s Pizza has always turned out some of the best pizza in the city. For more than a decade, brothers Benny and Nick D’Allesandro have built a reputation for creative pizza from their corner spot at St. Philip and Bogard streets.

First catering to college students living in Cannonborough-Elliotborough and in-the-know locals when they opened in the mid 2000s, Nick says that their business has changed little over the years. They’ve tried different things, but have settled on a formula that keeps people coming back: just keep making quality pies at the right price. Longtime favorites include the Get Gnarly and Chauncinator, but D’Al’s light, crispy crust also lends it to simple go-tos like the Spicy Benny, a plain cheese pie with pepperoni, jalapeno, and feta. Stop by for a quick lunch for under $10 or stay for a while with a few cold local beers on tap. —Sam Spence
