Last time we were there was on a Tuesday for the couples special, had a great time. This time went on a Thursday. It was not very busy. Ordered a glass a wine and as soon as it came I felt pressured to order. Told her to come back when we figured out our appetizers and when they came we... More

I took my husband to Alinas for his birthday. We went on Tuesday night for the couples special, 1 appetizer, 2 salads, 2 entrees, 1 bottle of house wine, and 1 dessert. I got a swordfish special that was so good and my husband got the sirloin BGB, which was crusted and had a pinot noir balsalmic reduction that was... More

Four of us came here on a Thursday night to celebrate a birthday. We had a fantastic meal and a great evening. Very friendly and helpful waitstaff, delicious food, well prepared and served promptly. The ahi tuna, gnocchi, and veal saltimbacca were all excellent. The desserts, especially the tiramisu and the creme brulee, were delicious. The wine selection is varied... More

As we entered Alina's, the chef stepped out of the kitchen and greeted us. That set the tone for a nice dinner spanning three generations. The food was well prepared and the staff worked hard to accommodate the two boys who were part of our party. A restaurant where the adults can get fine cooking and children's tastes can be... More

We took our son out to celebrate his own business and it was a wonderful experience. Their Marsala was the best I have had. It is one of my favorite dishes and the chef did a tasty job on this dish.

We had a wonderful meal at Alina's Restaurant in Hadley. The steak was cooked to perfection and the sauce was amazing!! It was a Tuesday so we had the special of sharing an appetizer, individual salads, choice of entree, sharing a dessert and a bottle of wine. It was the best meal I have eaten out in such a long...

We happened upon Alina's by accident and then discovered not only great food, but a magnificent four-course meal four two, plus a bottle of wine for $80! The idea is two people share an appetizer and dessert, but each gets his/her own salad and entre. My entre of rack of lamb was seven(!) lamb chops. Four of them are now... More

Alina's is by far the best Italian restaurant around. The owners are so friendly and engaging - so it makes you feel like you're part of the family too. The food is incredible. We have never had a bad meal there. They offer a lot of "smaller" sized portions too - which is perfect for me - and I still... More

After disappointing experiences at its predecessor, Carmelina's, we joked that they had lost their karma and never gave this a second glance - until two friends gave it a strong recommendation in one week. We discovered that, on the contrary, they had FOUND their karma! My veal piccata may have been the best I've ever had. Everything was prepared perfectly.... More

Alina's (formerly Carmelina's) is a very fine restaurant and location in Hadley Ma. This upscale Italiam American restaurant is ideal for a romantic evening with lite live jazz on weekends. We had a business dinner but the atmosphere made it more like a dinner with friends. Very friendly, professional and superb food. Chef Amaya is always on duty and is... More
