Well prepared Italian cuisine.

Atmosphere is casual and good for couples. Good selection of pastas and meat dishes. Great place to drop in for dinner. Great bar!

My guest had never been to Alfano's and we both ended up ordering the chicken parmesan. It was very good. It had been a while since I had been here. I saw some other tables being served and it made me make a note to myself to come back and explore the menu a bit more. Interesting decor, felt authentic.... More

Alfano's is simply excellent. The food, service, cocktails and wine selections are all superb. We brought our 20 and 22 year nieces as they also LOVE Alfano,s. We sat at the bar since we enjoy doing so and love the bartender, Keith. Some personal favorites: scallops Rockefeller appetizer, Eggplant Parm is best anywhere, Zuppa did Mare, Duck, Grouper, Osso Bucco,... More

This place is so 80's. The salad was nothing special - plain old lettuce, with some red onion, garbanzo beans, and a vinaigrette dressing. The bread was buttered and cut in half, and the entree was good, but not great. For the price, I expected a good bit more. I ordered the eggplant parmesan, it was good but not great.... More

If you"re in to top shelf Italian, this is your place! Not your local pizza parlor or pasta and sauce place. It's Wine Spectator award winner and well deserving of that distinction.

My boyfriend and I went here yesterday night for our anniversary. We were seated in the dinning room with the monkey wallpaper. The decor could definitely use a little updating but it reminded me of grandma's house for sure. Our service was slow, especially on drink refills for such a slow Monday night but the food was great and flavorful.... More

Eating here was like having Sunday dinner at Grandma's. This is a true old fashioned Italian restaurant with home cooked taste. From the garlic bread to the homemade desserts everything was excellent and reasonably priced. Matt our server was the very best. He was very attentive and personable. I will be sure to go here on on my next visit... More

Big restaurant that was barely half-full on a Tuesday. Food was good and the service was professional and friendly. Service often takes a dive when restaurants are busy but our server was great. Definately a spot to try again. We had antipasto tray for appetizer and pasta and a fish dish respectively.

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 in a... More
