Great food but a little pricey for what you get. Food is nice but it shouldn't cost as much as it does.

My partner and I visited this place as it had such good reviews and was close to our hotel, we were pleasantly surprised at the decent prices compared to the excellent quality of the food. The service was good and i noticed they interacted with the families that were there too. We tried gnocchi for the first time and loved... More

We came here several times on our honeymoon, food is absolutely beautiful, we loved their pizza and their pasta was very nice as well. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant was very welcoming.

This was our second visit to the family run Alfresco restaurant and the first for us in it's new location across the street from their previous location. We were a group of four and were warmly welcomed, given the table I had requested and from then on we had great friendly service with a smile. This is a family style... More

A different must while in the Gold Coast, let Rafael & his attentive staff show you some real Italian hospitality. The food is superb your regular Italian dishes with some much flavour " bellissimo" A crisp muscato accompanied by a medium rare fillet you will never forget. A tad pricy for some perhaps but you are on holiday spoil yourself... More

Food was very enjoyable and the staff went out of their way to ensure we got excellent service. Even to the point of returning my daughters meal to the chief and making adjustments to it without any extra charge.

All the staff we dealt with were so friendly and happy, it made us feel relaxed and very welcome. There is construction out the front for the light rail, but once inside it didn't affect the atmosphere at all. We ate in one night and had takeaway a couple of days later, and all the food we ordered was delicious... More
