Average food and service

First time at Alfio's tratorria. The food was average italian. The fried squid and eggplant parmesan are two of the best dishes.They have great customer service! I would recommend if there wasn't a better option around.

We have been coming to Alfios for 14 years. We first discovered it when we were looking for a place for our rehearsal dinner. We found they had a private room. We tried it out before hand and enjoyed. We have been coming back again and again! My husband tries something new everytime and is always happy. I stick with... More

My extended family loves Alfio's and their charming staff. The decor is intentionally a fun throwback to another time and place - a bit like GrandBudapestHotel. The food is served in large portions, so show up hungry!

This is a delightful traditional Italian restaurant with a staff that is genuinely caring. I was at a business dinner event on Wednesday night. We had "the back room" which was warmly appointed feeling much like a dining room save all of the armor hanging on the walls. There was a group of 15 of us - the room could... More

My mother-in-law loved Alfio's. Our family decided to dine here on a recent trip to attend a relative's funeral in Washington, DC. We dined on Friday, August 1. The restaurant was not crowded and we were seated quickly. The 5 of us had a variety of seafood and pasta. The entres were good and tasty. We had 2 bottles of... More

I hate this place. And I eat here twice a month because a group in which I am a member insists on holding meetings here. Alfio's is a geriatric throwback. The décor is as tired and insipid as grandma's worn out bedroom slippers. The place could use a good hosing out with a steaming pressure washer too. The bathrooms are... More

I've been dining at Alfio's since it opened, I think in the 1980s. The decor has alot of very interesting old Italian pieces. (You could be in Italy.) Service is always good. They have a great salad bar , good Italian bread, and solidly tasty Italian dinners. Their rolled, stuffed steak (sorry I can't remember the name-starts with 'br' I... More

We had a special gathering and Alfio's gave us a room to ourselves which was great. The food was very good and the salad bar was great. The décor was very nice.

It's special day for my spouse and I for Valentine's Day 2013. My spouse made the reservation and the waitress had given our table request which was nice but not enough privacy. Perhaps it was their busy night. Not enough room for me to move my chairs without bumping other people's chair. I did enjoy the quality of their food,... More
