Situated in Alhambra, Charlie’s Trio Cafe crafts homemade Italian cuisine with a rustic touch. It is family-owned and offers a warm and casual atmosphere that's ideal for dining out. Tasty starters like fried oysters topped with a tangy rémoulade or risotto croquettes stuffed with prosciutto and mozzarella are on the menu. Charlie’s Trio Cafe features house specialties that include such dishes as spicy shrimp diavolo, as well as the smoked salmon served over pappardelle pasta. This restaurant also makes a delectable array of hand-crafted pizzas and calzones.
Charlie’s Trio Cafe offers drinks with meals such as wine by the bottle or glass and beer from the tap. It also provides take-out services and catering for private functions.
I have been eating at Charlie's Trio for 20 years. I have split my time between the original on Huntington Drive and the newer cafe on Main. The main reason I keep coming back is because of my favorite waiter Ross (Rosendo) who has gotten to me and my tastes. He is always attentive and happy. He knows me so well I don't even have to look at the menu. While I don't go out often because of finances when I do it is here and I feel like a queen!
