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

Most of my life consists of eating and making Italian food. I cannot rave about Alforno's Italian bread enough! We have a business in Old Saybrook & on a weekly basis go to get their bread to accompany our family meals. I cannot seam to bake a bread better!! It is fantastic as a French toast the next day (...

That's a quote from a relative--he's young, but he's eaten in Bologna. My husband and I live in Old Saybrook and visit this restaurant frequently--to celebrate, to cheer ourselves up when necessary, to treat guests or just because we haven't been for a while . The food is remarkable--light and flavorful with some wonderful seasonal specialties using local produce. Their... More

Had a delicious Italian dinner here last night with my sailing buddies. Two of them had the lasagna, one had the sole or flounder special, and I had the hanger steak. We all shared the calamari which was tender and tasty, served nice and hot, not at all chewy or fishy. All was superb, just the right sized portions, great... More
