The Food

The menu at Rich & Charlie’s is wide-ranging but not overdone. There is enough to suit everyone’s taste (literally!), but not so much that it all becomes overwhelming, and no one can decide what to eat. Of course, this cannot be said for all eateries. The delicate balance between enough and too much is often overstepped; thankfully, that doesn’t happen at Rich & Charlie’s. 

The food is Italian cuisine, as you probably expect. Although pizzas are most certainly on the menu, there are plenty of other options. Rich & Charlie’s offers everything from the toasted ravioli to the perfectly presented sandwiches (with a side of fries if you choose).

Larger plates of food include:

  1. The Baked Mostaccioli (baked tube noodles with their signature meat sauce and Provel cheese).
  2. The Chicken Oreganato (boneless chicken breast, breaded and sauteed, with green peppers, mushrooms, and a touch of oregano in a marsala wine sauce).
  3. The Fettuccine con tre Formaggio (fettuccine noodles with butter, cream, Parmigiano, Provel, and Fontinella cheeses, prosciutto, and peas), you’re sure to leave with a smile and a full belly.

Plus, there is usually enough to take home with you as an extra treat to enjoy the next day! 


Rich & Charlie’s is a family-run restaurant with exceptional service. Everyone plays their part and ensures their guests are comfortable, relaxed, and enjoying the very best food the restaurant offers. You’ll feel like part of the family when you dine here, and the great thing is that the team leaves you to dine, not rushing you or hovering around. It’s little touches like this that make such a difference to the overall dining experience. 


Rich & Charlie’s is a busy place, and the atmosphere is also busy. But that’s not a negative if you like being around people in a fun, bustling environment. The restaurant itself might be small, but it makes up for that with great food, friendly people, and the kind of vibe that makes you want to go back time and again.
