We travelled from northern beaches NSW and Terrigal and we both loved the food. Ordered spaghetti and boscaiola for mains with garlic bread to start. Really good food and very friendly atmosphere. Definitely would go again.

Dined here on Saturday night with my husband. The staff were wonderful and it was a very busy night however they were very accommodating. I had the seafood marinara pasta and it was divine! The best seafood marinara i've had. Only downside was that there was only 1 mussel in the marinara however overall we were very satisfied. Would definitely... More

We had read good reviews of Alfresco and gave it a go. Despite being really busy the staff quickly found us a table. The food was somewhat expensive but definitely tasted good! Enjoyed the strong cocktails too. Suitable for romantic diners and also families.

Stopped here for an early dinner with our 9 month old. Place can get very busy but was nice and quiet at 5:30pm with just a few other tables with babies. Staff were friend and food was delicious! Everything came out promptly, and waitress was very accommodating when my partner made changes to the pasta he ordered. Would definitely recommend.

We had dinner there twice in our week at Surfers and both times the meals were delicious. The staff are very friendly and all seem to enjoy working there. The owner is welcoming and amazingly seems to find tables for everyone in this very busy restaurant. It is home style Italian cooking and they have a large menu selection. Would... More
