“Favourite Pizzeria in Orvieto”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We have had many pizzas in Orvieto over the past 6+ years and are always happy to return ot Pizza Charlie! The pizzas are well-cooked with a slightly doughy crust (not thin-crust) and the toppings are fresh and of good quality. We always receive a warm-welcome from the staff. There are two rooms both of which are comfortable (in summer there is a large outdoor dining space). Our meal of two pizzas, an Italian starter of patate fritte, a bottle of crsip Orvieto Classico white wine and bottle of sparkling water came to 33 Euro. Now off to the jazz!

“Pizza for families and anyone on a budget”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

One evening during a stay in Orvieto, my wife and I were looking a place for a small, simple dinner. We visited Charlie,which is just a block from the Piazza della Repubblica, based on a mention in Rick Steves' Guide. The hostess started to seat us at a table in the first room inside the door, but my wife said she'd prefer the back room, which did look inviting from outside. Once seated, I wished that we had stayed at the first table offered. The rest of the tables in the back room were occupied by families, and one child was especially loud. We each started with a salad, which had fresh ingredients but was nothing special. We then shared a pizza, which was good, but certainly not among the best we've had in Italy. When we left after dinner, the front room had filled, and I noticed that the diners there were couples and business people. In summary, the restaurant probably would be perfect for a family traveling with small children.

“Great pizza!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We spent a month in Orvieto, working with a local college program. When we asked the students where the best pizza was, the answer was unanimous: Charlie. An extra bonus is that they are one of the few restaurants open on Sunday nights!
Great, crispy-crust pizza. Their Diavola was my favorite, and they have an extensive list of options, including some really unusual combos. If you order for takeaway, as we often did, they were extremely prompt in fulfilling their orders—usually only about 10-15 minutes at most. Service in the restaurant itself could be a little slow at times, but that's because the place was always hopping whenever we went. They do share the same mysterious magical ability of so many other Italian restaurants of being able to steadfastly avoid your gaze whenever you want to request the check—how do they all do that?

“Very noisy. Food okay.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

We were seated in the back room and after a few minutes it filled up with large groups and families, therefore, extremely loud. We shared a salad which was okay, not great. We each had a pasta dish which were fine. We noticed that most people ordered pizza which may have been better. I wouldn't go again.
