We had a nice dinner there. Food was homemade and good. I had spaghetti and meatballs which was very flavorful and filling. Staff was friendly and courteous.

Really good Italian food. I had the osso bucco and it was fantastic. I like how they have the daily specials written on an easel that they bring to your table. Haven't been disappointed here

Nice restaurant, large specials menu. Have tried several different dishes. The food is good, but not great for my tastebuds. I have never had a bad experience, but I just leave there thinking, okay that was nice. My tastebuds need a little more flare and flavor to wow me.

While visiting family in Montgomery we came across 88 Charles. Walking through the door we immediately felt the old world charm. The restaurant was packed and we didn't have a reservation. We were sent to the beautiful piano bar to wait for a table. The martinis were perfect and it was fun watching the bartender froth the milk for the... More

We enjoyed our family dinner the other night. Robust sized portions of excellently prepared dinners. Cocktails were well prepared and everyone enjoyed the excellent service all evening. A very friendly place and a nice surprise finding it where we wouldn't have expected to find such a nice place.

Our most recent visit to 88 Charles Street was, once again, a great dining experience. The cocktails, appetizer and entrées were all well prepared and the service at 88 Charles Street never disappoints. I ended up bringing dessert home, as I was full from the generous entrée portions but couldn't resist the temptation of the many choices on the dessert... More

Over the years this restaurant went from a cozy real small space to a restaurant with some room. Although still on the small side they have enough room to make a difference. Chalkboard menus that are placed by your table with many creative dishes that will make you come back. Daily specials also are offered each day which changes it... More

We planned to have dinner after an area art show and called ahead for reservations. We were told that reservations were only accepted for a party of five or more and we would be accommodated. The evening turned into torrential down pours and we sloshed across the parking lot and entered into a nice vestibule, shook off the wet, stored... More

The food is good Italian food - BUT very pricey for what you get. Lunch prices are the same as dinner prices so beware if/when you go for lunch.
