We popped in here after work for a drink and some apps. We sat on the covered outside patio and were promptly served by a friendly young man. The prices are quite fair and the food is of good quality. I want to go back and try a dinner. They have a good variety with a style that leans towards... More

Get there for happy hour and you will not be disappointed and stay for one of the best dinners in the area. Their thin crust Pizzas (Roma) are unbelievable

We'd just been to San Diego. We always make sure to visit my sister in Alhambra when were in So Cal. My sister has this keen sense of good eats. We typically would have gone to the Diner on Main - which I love - but she wanted to try this Italian restaurant she'd seen in the neighborhood. San Diego... More

I've been there for lunch, just finished, it's a decent place. It looks cool, almost kind of vintage. There's a parking outside, which is pretty nice. The food itself is average, for what I've tried. The pizzas are pretty good, the pastas are ok, just ok. And they do something that would make an Italian mama have a heart attack... More

There is nothing wrong with Charlie's trio but nothing very special either. The food is decent, the atmosphere convivial, the service adequate. But the food is predictably Italian, the drinks are expensive and the place can get noisy, especially if there is a sporting event on the television. All in all, it is a safe bet but not memorable. Happy... More

Stopped in Wednesday evening around 7:30 and had to wait 10 minutes or so for a nice table in the corner for the 5 of us. Waiter was very helpful deciding what to have. Prices were reasonable and portions were large but not huge. We had a carafe of their chianti for a $13. Didn't have the pizza but it... More

The food is good and the service is fast for lunch hours. I'd go with one of the calzones and a salad, they are great! If you prefer take-out then I suggest the broasted chicken and potatoes.

We were there for a dinner on the very busy Valentines Day. Had the jade martini and it was excellent. As others have said their bread and oil is great too. Loved the scampi with wide pasta noodle dish made with a vodka sauce. All the way through the Spumoni this was excellent dining. Pizza is available too. Adriana was... More
