This afternoon my husband & I had a early supper, & of course we chose Charlie's as it never disappoints. I normally always choose the eggplant parmigiana, as Charlie prepares it the way my Mother did who was from Bari. Tonight I chose the sausage, onions, & peppers. My husband chose the lasgna. Frankly we have had everything. Charlie is... More

Very happy with our choice to dine at Charlie's. Super service and amazing food. The fresh bread is to die for!!! You have to try the meatballs. Everyone in our party of 6 tried something different and ALL of it was fantastic!

I had a fantastic filet, and my guest enjoyed the eggplant parm. It was very busy, but the wait was minimal.

I definitely recommend reservations. I made them an hour before I showed up on a Friday night and only waited 5 min. The wait time for others was 45 min. The food was your typical Italian . Not the best I've ever had but not bad either. The waitress was pleasant. I will warn you there is a shortage of... More

What a delight to finally dine at Charlie's. We had overlooked it on previous trips to the area but will never miss it again. The Fried Calamari appetizer was served with a delightful marinara sauce and quickly consumed. My Baked Penne Sicilian was perfect as was my wife's Chicken Saltimbocca. This place has the sort of menu which makes me... More

Date night with the hubby. Early supper at 4:30. Seated promptly. Very nice waitress. Ordered 12' pizza and Taste of Italy, both amazing, especially the pizza, with a beer and glass of wine. The pizza could feed a family of 4 so we took the rest home for a midnight snack. Reasonably priced and great experience. Would def recommend and... More
