This place is highly over rated and is mediocre at best. Located in a questionable neighborhood and adjacent to a really aromatic creek the parking lay out is odd to say the least. The restaurant bills itself as serving American, Italian, pizza, seafood and a steakhouse. Use your own judgement as to how any one place can do such a... More

We found this restaurant a couple of years ago on accident and now we eat here every time we visit East Hartford. The portions are huge and everything we have tried has been amazing!

I liked the veal Marsala. Waiter was attentive. Nice mushroom appetizer. Good laid back atmosphere where we can bring our special needs son.

Al Fresco's and their side take out C & E is one of the best places to go for an unassuming meal. Family friendly with good portions the restaurant was recently handed back to the old owner's and they have brought the establishment back to what is once was new decor and fresher menu. A great lunch and dinner place... More

Alfresco's resstaurant is our best restaurant in the whole Manchester/Hartford area, with excellent meals, specials, and reasonable prices. You won't find a better cup of soup!

Didn't like or finish the stuffed chicken entree. The sweet potato ravioli and cheesy garlic bread were good though. Chicken ceasar salad was good. Large menu but only one dessert on it. Dark restaurant, with a large bar and a clean bathroom. The staff was quick and friendly. We would probably go back

My family and I (party of about 12) went here to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday. We had a reservation so the table was set when we arrived and we were seated right away. The waitress was friendly and she went over the specials menu and the soups quickly. There weren't many people there except for 2 other larger parties.... More

There is an incredibly large varied menu. Certainly something for everyone's tastes. We ordered many of the specials. The clam chowder was really good, loaded with large pieces of clams and veggies, plenty of flavor besides just cream. The side salads were very fresh. The potato and cheese pierogi were tasty, although some thought they needed more cheese, while others... More

The food has consistently been great and always leaves you more than satisfied, and frequently with a little to take home as well.Their baked stuffed eggplant, baked lasagna, and veal parmesan are excellent and have become my favorites. Don't forget to try their C&E Pizza on the side of the restaurant for great grinders and pizza.
