The food is delicious. The staff is courteous and provide excellent customer service.
Authentic Italian! The Cazones, excellent. The staff is very attentive, and the new decor and removal of carpet and reconfiguration of the restaurant is GREAT!
Came here for a friend's birthday - complementary tiramisu! Tasty food too!
Had a fantastic time there. Parking was very convenient and the food was fantastic. They had a half off wine special and I had the stella. The restaurant is one I will be coming back to dine.
It is to die for. Super flavorful. The service is excellent and the new decor and fresh look is very nice!
Great Italian fare, and friendly staff. Good prices and always FRESH ingredients!
We had a reservation but arrived early and were still seated without waiting. Waitress was attentive and food was delicious with short wait.
Heirloom tomato salad is amazing.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious, the ambiance was energetic yet still fun not too loud and still romantic. Service was great. Music was good. Drinks were good.
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!
Charlie's Trio is my favorite local Italian restaurant. The food is delicious. The staff are extremely friendly and caring. My favorite local restaurant on a Friday night.
If you like straight ahead food cooked well then this is the place for you. Nothing surprised but the salad was overdressed, even after requesting light dressing. It was quiet so event though busy you could carry on a normal level conversation.
Our hostess, waiter and waitress made our dining experience fabulous.
Delicious food, wonderful staff so we had a great time.
Went here for Valentine's Day, is not the fanciest of places but the food speaks for itself. Very satisfied and economical place to dine.
great spot for a first date or any other times
One of my favorite spots in Alhambra!!! GREAT Italian entrees and always inventive!!!

Charlie's Trio is one of Alhambra's best neighborhood restaurants. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is friendly. The staff is always personable and hospitable. I have been coming here for over 14 years!
Charlie's Trio Cafe is a great family cozy cafe to eat at. The butter squash ravioli was excellent and crab pasta dish was excellent. The service was excellent and the manager even came to say hi and chatted a bit with us.
Fine pasta and delicious specials. Great staff.
Love this Italian get away in Alhambra
GREAT local eatery in Alhambra!!! GREAT Italian!!! and a fine staff!
Pretty regular here, and found a new menu! Many of the same, but lots new - Seems like it about as same to me. Service was a little off this time though. Seemed like they might of been a little short that evening.
Food? Good as ever. Decent portions for the cost - very comfortable.
The food was great but the restaurant itself needs a makeover. Not a place if you want a romantic dinner. This is more of a casual restaurant with quality food.
