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.

Great for a date night. Great service. We like to go for our anniversary. The food is amazing. Homemade pasta and sauces. The garlic bread they bring you is to die for!

Nice dining room with a beautiful ornate cappuccino machine next to the wall.. Truly a piece of art! Our waiter told us it was brought over from the opera house in Milan. The crusty bread was a good sign of the food to come. Appetizers are great size. I had the eggplant rollatini, thin sliced and nice marinara to top.... More

We have now relocated permanently to the area , and are looking forward to regular visits to this restaurant. The staff is very nice, the service is top notch, and last but not least....the food is fantastic. We have... More

We were here December 9th for a private function, a friends's wedding. The restaurant handled all the requests of the bride and groom and decorated the place nicely. We were here the day before as my husband was the Minister so we got a chance to see the staff setting up and working on the day of the wedding. The... More

I just a few days ago, traveled to Clearwater, Florida, for a week, and arriving on Saturday night finding a nice place to eat wasn't as difficult as I expected. Along the Clearwater/Largo Road was an Italian Restaurant, Alfano's. From the parking lot, which looked fool, I expected to have to wait for a very long time. We were seated... More

This was a second visit. Food was over salted, service lacking. Waiter failed to present specials until we had already ordered appetizers. No mention in menu or by waiter that 15% gratuity was already added to check. Pasta water logged, red sauce bland, meatballs mushy. Seafood special skimpy on featured lobster and not well seasoned. This place is convenient to... More

I've lived in the area for 10 years and had no idea this place was here. I'm so glad a visiting colleague stumbled across them. When you walk in, you are instantly taken back to Grandma's house. I was hoping to see the big wooden fork and spoon on the walls, but the cheribs, wallpaper and statues took me home.... More
