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

A large group of us dined there on Friday night. I had the fish, I believe it was flounder, but whatever, it had a strong fish taste and I was not able to eat all of it. My husband had the eggplant parmesan and he said it was not as good as usual. Our wait service was fine.

after reading about it that it was part of the airline dining arrangement, we thought to give it a try. The outside of the Restaurant was very nice with a good size car park. The inside of the entrance was also quite nice but we (there was three of us) all thought that the Restaurant itself was quite stuffy, some... More

I am a member of Rotary International, and when you cannot attend your own club meeting you are supposed to find another club and attend their meeting as a "visiting Rotarian" and get credit for a "make up meeting."
