When I moved to the mountains I knew I was going to miss my favorite restaurant, The Olive Garden. However, I have been thrilled to find some establishments in the mountains to appease my love for italian food! One of these great finds is Charlie’s Italian Restaurant in Ellijay!
Not only is the huge red chair out front a favorite for my kids to crawl on and also a popular picture for tourists, but the food and service has always been amazing! The owner, Charlie Perrone was actually born in Italy in 1957 and cooks at this restaurant. He brings his love for italian food and likes to share many of his favorite dishes with his customers. Even if you are not an italian food lover, they have a variety of other dishes to choose from. One time I ate their salmon and can honestly say, it was one of the best I have ever had!
So, if you love italian or just good cooking in general, visit Charlies! While you are in the quaint town of Ellijay, call one of our agents at The Mountain Life Team to show you some beautiful cabins and homes in the area.
