Great meal

Stopped in for a late dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The fried ravioli appetizer was great. The only bad thing is the pizzas they offer are large and not really suitable if you are travelling alone.

One of the many restaurants located inside the Atlantis casino. Staff was on it through the first visit to this restaurant. Staff was friendly and coordinated mostly when the server went on break. Server checked on our table at good intervals. Our order was the Tri color manicotti pasta, salad, soup, and chicken pasta. Food didn't take long to arrive.... More

Went to Atlantis Casino Resort Spa for dinner. Ate in Café Alfresco. The Pasta and Salad sampler is the best. The bread with the olive oil and vinegar are wonderful. The Gelato is so good. The food and service is outstanding. The woodfired pizza is great tasting.

On our second day at the Atlantis, following in enormous dinner at Toucan Charlie's last night, café alfresco's Italian fare fit the bill perfectly. Bruschetta and ravioli appetizers with drinks, followed by gelato made for a satisfying, relaxing dinner.

If you are a fan of Italian food this is your place, if not there is still plenty of options for you including salads, soups and the bread and for dessert the gellato. But as good as the food is the service is even better. Friendly, attentive without being a bothersome.

Had the grilled salmon with whole wheat Penne pasta. It was very good. They had rolls with it. Friend ordered spaghetti and meatballs, it was okay. They are popular for their Pizzas.

Enjoyed the chicken piccata. Very tasty. Also like that they have a sampler on the menu which allows you to pick a half order pasta or personal pan pizza with a side salad or soup. My husband and I never like the same type of pizza so this works out great. They have raised there prices recently but still not... More

In Reno for business staying at the Atlantis. Decided to do a simple meal within the resort, and rather than going the Buffet route - wanted a sit down meal. To my surprise, the food was excellent, espeically for being located in the middle of the casino. The environment was acceptable for what it is (being in the middle of... More

I went here for dinner. I had their ministrone soup and pasta special. Their pasta I had was their seafood pasta and was very good. Since it was their special, it was a smaller size than their main pasta dishes. However I was quite full. I had ice tea with it. Service was pleasant.

We have eaten here many times. The salads are excellent. Our favorites are the Italian Cobb and the Southwest. The servings are very large, so we often split them or take them home for seconds. The soups are very good. This is our go to place when we want something good but are not going out for anything special. The... More
