Nothing fancy here but a couple of pleasant surprizes.

Recently had dinner here on a Sunday evening. The room was pretty quiet and could use some updating. My wife had stuffed shells $8.99 which came with soup or salad. She chose a meatball soup which was very good. Hearty and all the food here did come out hot. The shells were decent enough. I had... read more

Don't go there for your party needs... Ordered 5 pizzas for an early morning pick-up for a kid's birthday party (4th grade) and confirmed the order on Saturday for the Monday pick-up... go there Monday and no one is there. I was a regular customer at this establishment but no more. This is a business that you simply can't rely... More

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
