Ate lunch and dinner here. Both were very good and delicious. Enjoyed my oxtail casserole. Great wine selection too. Great location and service.

We stayed for two nights at P.E. Our host recommended Charlie‘s Pizza & Pasta and he was absolutely right to do so. Even with an ongoing power outage for now over 48 hours three generators ensured the ongoing service. Thus we were able to enjoy...both evenings there with delicious food and a variety of drinks. The prices are reasonable and the staff done a great job creating a cheerful amorphere.More

Stayed in Summer strand for many business trips but never been to this place until yesterday. We ordered a pizza each and was not impressed. If you like a limp ,wafer thin pizza base with toppings falling off then this is the place for you....Waitress didn't seem interested ,basically just asked for a drinks order and food order...not the most inviting placeMore

The service was poor on all 3 occasions we were there. The food average. The best thing I have eaten is the oxtail.

Our first time visiting, we ordered a pizza to go, tired and hungry from a long travel day. The guy who took our order assured us that a large would be ample for two adults. We should have known by the relatively low price that...it was not going to be enough food. With cracker-thin crust (and because it’s wood fired, much of it is burned and inedible), the pizza is delicious (love the sauce), but it takes a large for a hungry adult’s dinner. Their delivery was quick and easy using WhatsApp. I recommend the salami, which has a nice amount of basil and rocket to complement the saltier pepperoni.More

Charlies was recommended by one of the locals and seemed to be highly rated. I don't know if it was just my luck but the Lamb Shank I had was very bland with little taste. Rather disappointing.

I had the prawn pasta with the tomato, feta & olive sauce. My wife had the chicken & mushroom pasta and we shared a blanco pizza. Food was great. Service was great.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Very good pizza, very good pasta and the fresh apple juice was amazing. Goo service.

Service was poor.I like the pizzas but the frustration around being served is really irritating. Really need to improve their service delivery
