There aren't many places like this. Waiters in uniform, large cocktails, good wine and old ti Sunday gravy Italian food,but with an upscale reach. Drinks are a little pricey but food and service is good.

Two couples had a great meal on Father’s Day. Terrific veal dishes and pastas. Great ravioli appetizer and very good lemoncello after dinner drinks. Waiter was the best! Highly recommend this restaurant.

We went to Charlie Gittos for an early dinner but the food was not thoroughly prepared. 3 of 4 of us had gastro issues a few hours later. It is a very expensive restaurant and we expected much better.

Solid meal with solid service. Overall everyone enjoyed their meal. Have to say we were disappointed in the breaded raviolis...maybe the original, but not the best we've had. Good wine list. Nice setting. Would we go back? Sure.

Most dishes are in the $20-30 range. A decent bottle of wine is about $30. Regardless, as a 2nd generation Italian, it is well worth the money!
