Another great meal at Alfano's. We visit at least once a month or more. Food is always consistent and service is great. We have not had a bad menu item yet.

There are hundreds of Italian restaurants, but very few who tailor the experience to each diner. The wait staff is truly concerned to give you an excellent experience, and special requests (no lactose, no pepper, etc.) are clearly reviewed with the chef, who responds with delicious precision. Linens and flowers, warmth and friendliness, plus intriguing and exceptional specials make for... More

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst staying in Clearwater. It was so good we went twice in a week! Fantastic food and fantastic service. Recommend the house salad and creme brule.

Had lunch with friends. Lovely setting and ambiance, We were seated at a large round table that made for more convivial conversation. The wait staff was attentive and helpful, I had a cup of the best Pasta Fagiole I ever had and tried the Chicken Dornazio for the first time and it was everything I hoped it would be.

Went in for lunch today with my wife, sister and a long time friend not see for 20+ years. As smart a place as we've been to, very welcoming, extremely good service, and great food. All at very reasonable prices

The owner's Frank and Linda Alfano are the most skilled restauranteurs I have met to date. I mean some people are made for this business and most are not. It's not just the excellent food and "splendido bar". Frank and Linda make you feel special. I can honestly say there is no place I would rather go. If I lived... More

If you want good Italian, try Alfano's. It's an out of the way, very pretty restaurant with delicious food. The garlic bread is absolutely wonderful!

My fiance' and I ad a few guests were celebrating my future mother inlaws birthday last weekend. The service was poor, unlike the food tasting so good in the last thirty years. My mother in law said the red sugo sauce tasted like metal and that she had to remove herself because she needed to spit it out on the... More

This was our second trip to the Clearwater area and wish we would have known about Alfano's earlier. Although it is not by the water, once you walk into their building, it is true elegance. The energy is fantastic, the wait staff exceptional ( most have been with the restaurant for many years ) and the food is magnificent. Complimentary... More
