Nice spot on Stanley Street. Very accommodating to my vegan diet. The pear salad was amazing and the pizza was quite good too. The pizza smelled amazing and did not disappoint. I was there on a Tuesday night and was lucky enough to catch live music by local artist Michelle. She is currently performing on Tues & Sun nights. Acoustic... More

Given this was only restaurant open on Sunday in area it has real chance to form good reputation. Instead appears to take advantage of the fact is only place open. Next time I will cook. Service began by being told short of wines by glass. Pizza was overcooked actually base was burnt. The tastes overwhelm each other though sounded lovely... More

We stopped by for coffee's and dessert after dinner around the corner at Sticky Fingers..and what a MASSIVE disappointment. I had last eaten here about 18 months ago and it was memorable! Sadly, it is no longer! Cake was old, tea was cold and coffee's were burnt. Reading the reviews on this site, I now understand that it is under... More

We used to love Charlies. The pizzas were awesome and the staff were great, lots of fun and energy. We would inevitably find ourselves there every few weeks. It changed ownership last year and it's unbelievable how it's deteriorated. If there was ever a study in the difference good management makes, this is it. Our last effort in January to... More

We used to LOVE this restaurant, but since new owners have taken over it's horrid. The waitress was clueless and when our pizzas arrived they were virtually inedible. I had to send mine back as it was missing one of the key ingredients and then had to fetch it myself from kitchen as the two waitresses on duty were chatting... More

We have been fans of Charlie Superstar in Richmond Hill for a long time and thought the Ironman Weekend the perfect time to invite friends from all over to share our passion for this establishment. We tried to phone numerously to book a table and eventually drove there to book a table. We were told the telephone was off line.... More

Charlie Superstar was one of my favourite restaurants for a very long time, but poor service stopped me going there for nearly a year. After this period elapsed I decided to try it again - hoping for better service, but alas, I was met by a dull waitress who didn't care to service our group. We kept having to wave... More

Pizza is one of my favourite things to indulge in, so naturally I have tried and experimented at many places but WOW did Charlies get it right when a pizza craving struck! Their pizzas are not only different and unique, they are also absolutely delicious. I did find the prices to be quite high though and the service was terrible,... More

On the 18 th of dec , my husband and I and 3 other couples went to Charlie superstars for dinner. We had to search for a waiter over and over again to take every drinks order and our food order. Plates were not cleared away and I doubt the waiter said one word to us when he did take... More

When this changed from Vovatela to Charlie Super Star the standard of pizza went down but now it is easily the best Pizza in Town, huge range of toppings, select what you want and not smothered with too much cheese. Also the usual range of Pasta and Antipasto Atmosphere is really good, nice to sit outside in Stanley Street in... More
