We went to this place on a whim because it was one of the few places open on a Sunday night. A few things: it is a little bit pricey and our server was a little slow, otherwise, I would have given it a full...More

My husband and I came here with dear friends for a nice dinner after a show. We enjoyed the food and drinks, the wait staff was friendly and knowledgable, and the atmosphere was relaxed but nice. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful food and service! The service is what you always want but seldom receive in restaurants. Call ahead for reservations. We have never been disappointed by any food selection and we have returned a few times.

I love Charlie Gitto's! Never had something there I didn't like. I prefer the downtown location to this one both both are great. The chicken rigatoni, cannoli, and seafood ravioli are amazing!
