If you're down the CT shore in the Old Saybrook/Westbrook area and feel like Italian food then this is the place to stop. This is a warm and inviting restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere. We were lucky enough to have Claude as our wait person and Claude knows what's best to eat as well as being a very attentive server.... More

After reading that Alforno's won best northern Italian food in our local shoreline paper we decided to try it out on a Saturday night. The restaurant is located at the end of a strip shopping center, but once entered, the ambience is modern and bright with "Miro-like" panels on the wall. The tables at Alforno's are tightly packed in and... More

The outside does not do justice to what is inside. I am Italian so I would be more critical than most I thought the food was excellent. I ordered the pizza. It was great I wanted the pasta but the portions were small for a large size of spaghetti and priced at 19.50. They needto give larger portions and not... More

Love garlic? Love fresh seafood, pasta and bread? Alforno not only has some of the best pizza on the shoreline, their entrees certainly are deliciously Italian. Small, intimate setting, perfect for a date nite!

We went with another couple and we haven't been here in years. Could be new owners. The olives and bread served first delicious. I had the veal francaise with penne, my husband had chicken parmasean and one of our friends had the hanger steak. Tender. The veal was exquisite. Our other friend had the pasta and clams and very good.... More

Me my wife and her mother went to Alforno's Restaurant on Sunday. All of us had pasta and it was very delicious. Sandra & I had our regular favorite to drink (Grey Goose Martini Dry with stuffed Olives) Then we finished off our meal with their homemade Cannoli's. Yummy

Classic food in a restaurant run by Italians, we'd endorse all of the reviews below. We were warned on arrival that service might be slow because they'd had to cope with a rehearsal dinner, but it wasn't slow (certainly not by European standards). We didn't have any of the pizzas (massive!) but three different pastas. Don't be put off by... More

First of all - if you like a crusty loaf if Italian bread? This is your place. If you like thin crust New Haven style pizza - Al Forno has a pretty good version. Good stuff! The rest of the menu is pretty good, too. Items change on a regular basis. Always fresh and delicious. Only complaint (and this is... More
