Unexpected - Wonderful find

We were looking for a restaurant on the way to the Capital Theatre and we found Alfano's. If you go ask to be seated in the lounge at they have entertainment and it's more pleasing. The main dining room is old and dated. My wife had the Chicken and Pasta Salad - Chicken, celery, red onion, and egg... read more

The duck at Alfano's is incredible! Prepared at the table. I always get the duck. The also have small private rooms. The atmosphere is very chic. The bar area is like a classy New York bar.

Alfano's is consistently delicious! The food is absolutely wonderful. The veal chop Milanese is amazing. Also the eggplant Parmesan is terrific. Scott is the best waiter there is. He's knowledgeable about all the menu and any of the wines. Highly recommend.

Excellent food, service, and pricing in a warm home like setting. Cooking as good as you will find in the best Italian Mama's kitchen.

Good food, good portions at a decent price. The pasta was done just right, and the marinara sauce was outstanding. Had other dishes there too, such as fish and chicken, and they were outstanding.

Staff very friendly. Pleasant décor. Mostly senior citizens for Early Bird specials. Dining room cleared out by 8pm. Garlic bread so many talk about was never offered or delivered. Water and wine was never refilled after initial pouring. We refilled our own wine. Salads were room temperature. Did not have first choice for entrée. Entrees not Hot. Food was good,... More

This was the second visit, this time was for the "early bird", the menu was limited, the usual Italian dishes that the "non' Italians/NYers enjoy, eg chicken ptarmigan, ugh! Pretty place, very nice staff.

The restaurant is attractive, the food was pretty good and there were no issues with the service. When I got the bill, a 15% TIP was already added! I don't know about you, but I consider tipping OPTIONAL. On the plus side, the fact that they do this is clearly noted on the bill AND a restaurant employee verbally reminded... More

Decor is more interesting than the standard Italian fare but locals keep returning because the owners are very civic minded. For a small dinner party of 8-10 you can reserve an intimate private room.
