We love this restaurant. A nice touch is the salami and cheese and peppers that are served with the bread. You can't go wrong with the pastas. A house salad is always served before the entree. The steak au poivre is also exceptional. We have been going here for probably 20 years and have never had a bad meal. My... More

Charles Street Café is an excellent restaurant. This past Thanksgiving, we chose for the first time to eat at a restaurant on Thanksgiving with six members of our family. Honestly, it was much easier and enjoyable. Charles Street did all of the work. Charles Street served a fix price menu which included hot antipasto, lasagna, salad, roast pork, Italian style...

Several friends regularly tout this place, so I have given it more than a few tries. It basically is an average diner with ambient lighting. I give it an average because it is a very nice location and the restaurant, albeit a bit dark (which worries me to some degree) has a very nice atmosphere. That said, for the price,... More

I went to 88 Charles Street for a business diner. We started with Italian appetizers that were very tasty. The menu is large and mainly based on Italian food. I took the veal valdostana with penne. As an European I find it overcooked but globally it was a good dishe. I liked very much the sauce that was flavored with... More
