Your restaurant is better than any restaurants on Arthur Ave in the Bronx. The menu is absolutely wonderful... I wish I could eat one of each entre every time we go to Charles st. Excellent service as well... Thank you Mario for the great appetizer. We will be back...

I am a resident of Montgomery and I have been to this restaurant many times. The restaurant has a warm ambiance and the wait staff knowledgable and attentive. My issue is the quality of the food, it is extremely inconsistent. Some dishes like the Steak Au Poive are excellent while others like the calamari are way over cooked and rubbery.... More

We were taken here by our friends that wanted to try it for the first time. I ordered the Eggplant, it was just ok. My husband ordered a seafood mix over pasta and he said the Seafood was overlooked. We didn't complain since we were taken there.

88 Charles street sets the bar for Elegant dining and fine dishes. I like to come here when I am in the mood for something more formal. And although they treat you with fine dining, it is not required to dress formally. Fine casual wear is acceptable. Service is always great, and the food is a culinary treat.

Mario operates the friendliest fine food restaurant in the business. His fish is fresh and grilled to perfection. The chicken with mango sauce is superb and his pastas are prepared perfectly. Do not miss the wonderful lamb shanks! The delicious desserts are made in house. We eat here regularly and are always delighted. The crew are well informed, very nice... More

Interesting building which stands away from others and is nicely decorated. I would say trying to mimic a Parisian restaurant, not Italian, but the result is a little pretentious. Waiters were very attentive. Lighting was ‘sub-romantic’, bordering on dark When in USA eat steak, but my NY strip was disappointing, rather dry, not succulent and without a great deal of... More

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.
