Very good food!

I had the gnocchi alessia - delicious. Nice staff they were very friendly and helpful. I would probably go back and share a plate of pasta, portions are big!

After reading the great reviews we thought we just had to try Alfresco on Elston. We have a 8 & 4 yo so it needed to be somewhere 'family friendly'. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly lady who showed us to our table. We immediately felt at home. The decor was warm and 'homey'. The menu was... More

Took the family across the road from theQ1 to this authentic restaurant. The menu was diverse and the food spectacular. Would highly recommend for all ages. Will return again for sure. Wait staff were very lovely and added to the experience.

We turned up and although it was busy the staff were more than welcoming moving tables so our party could sit together. The food was great, good value and nice healthy portions. No complaints!

We went here after reading the great reviews on here, unfortunately we were not as impressed as others. We had the garlic bread to start which was incredible and we had high hopes for the rest of the meal. We ordered a pasta carbonara and a pizza, the carbonara was average and needed lots of extra seasoning, the pizza was... More

We got here about 7-7:30pm on a Saturday night and it was packed out. The staff quickly put together a table for the 5 of us. We ordered some starters, kids meal and drinks and they were out on our table before we knew it! They came out quick and still tasted amazing! We then ordered main meals and none... More

Came here after reading the amazing reviews and we were left bitterly disappointed! The place was extremely busy. Booked a table for 645 and there was no table reserved for us - the waitress found us an empty table at the back. The garlic bread tasted good but was small. After the entree, it was downhill. Our mains took over... More
