Despite some poor reviews, we finally caved in and tried Alfano's for ourselves and are we sure glad we did. Dined in the lounge. Stefan's service was outstanding as was his recommendation. I figured I'd give the place one chance and to take his recommendation. The Osso Bucco was so tender it could not be skewered with my fork. It... More

Dated decor and menu. Youngest people in the restaurant by far (and we aren't kids). Service pleasant. Prices high for run of the mill food.

Came here on a whim while we were staying in Clearwater. It was a quiet night and we were seated straight away without a reservation. My husband had the grouper and I had the special of the day, which was chicken francese, both of which were excellent. We both had desert (cannoli and the apple strudel), both of which were... More

We were taken here by local friends and were not disappointed. We did not have reservations on a Friday evening but were immediately seated in a private area off the bar right near the piano player. How nice to listen to a live person playing cocktail lounge standards while enjoying the freshly prepared entrees. . 3 out of the 4... More

Due to reviews and positive comments from other reviewers, we thought this has to be a great Italian restaurant. Seriously, not sure where the other reviewers are coming from. This restaurant was as far from authentic Italian as you could get. We compared the food to cans of Chef Boyardee. My wife and I started with pasta fagioli and their... More

Went with friends and we were seated in the private room off the bar - what a very lovely evening. The food was superb! We relaxed, were not rushed and closed the place down. We didn't know after being there and emerging after 3 hours from our little alcove that we were the only ones left in the place. Waiter... More

I was taken to Alfano's by a good friend as a treat, and boy what a treat it was. The food was wonderful, the service was great and we had a blast. It was very reasonably priced for some of the best food I have had in along time. I can't wait to go again and take my Husband this... More

I have eaten there for years but never wrote a review. The atmosphere is a little dated, but still lovely. They took my favorite entrée off the menu, but I asked the chef to make it and he gladly accommodated me. It was heaven on earth! The scallops Rockofeller is out of this world. The service is the best and... More
