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

We have always had the most wonderful food and service at Charlie's . You just know when you go in it will be great! I love the Shrimp Scampi and my husband usually tries a different dish each time and it is always great! Our friends from Boston were totally impressed and surprised when they visited . Great for couples... More

Found on TripAdvisor and had positive reviews. Atmosphere was pleasant. Pretty extensive menu. I had eggplant parm and my parents had soup and salad. Salads were not anything special but soup and parm were good. Sauce on parm was especially good. Wait staff was attentive. Would recommend.

Walking in, it's super clean and we were greeted with a smile. The server had several tables and yet was still very pleasant and helpful. I ordered pizza and, oh God, it was amazing. My family ordered steaks and it was off the charts as well. So tender and actually pretty large for just $12. I definitely can't wait to... More

First visit was very good. Second visit not so good. Decided to try again. Three strikes and HORRIBLE!!! Last visit, Husband had Mozzarella Sticks and Veal Parmesan and a Coke. I had Fried Calamari & Eggplant Parmesan. Both came with very good salads. House Dressing much too spicy. I ordered bottled water, very nice looking glass bottle from Italy tasted... More

This restaurant offers good food with a nice variety on their menu. All of the staff were definitely hustling to serve their customers, but I think in doing so, they forgot about customer service. Overall, good experience every time I've been.
