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

I had the salad/pasta sampler. It is a large amount of food and I was unable to eat all of it. Price is good and the service is excellent. The variety of menu items is sure to please anyone.

The soups at this restaurant are great! The creamy aparagus soup, yumm! They offer gelato in various different flavors. I enjoyed dessert very much! The "brick oven" pizza, which we were excited to try, was bland and didn't have any flavor. The bread was thick and doughy and the bottom was burnt, but the top where the toppings were was... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food is always spot on. Located so close to the buffet there was a serious fishy smell which was off putting. But excellent scampi and wonderful brick-oven pizza.

Bad pizza. No taste and poorly made. Short pour on the red wine. Waitress was good. I guess your not at a hotel like this for the food.

The Café Alfresco is a small restaurant in the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, just off the casino floor, specializing in Italian style food. The food is outstanding, and yet reasonably priced. The starters are good, with the best being the calamari and the asparagus dishes (my favorites). They're soups (only two) rate in the "best I ever tasted" category. My... More

The wine by the glass selection was excellent, the food was ok. Pretty sure it comes from the same kitchen as the buffet. I had the caprese salad and was bummed that only two basil leaves were included. I also had garlic shrimp...very tasty.

Lunch was very good the wood fired pizza was very tasty. Service was prompt and attentive. The decor is a little dated and dark but not a holdback to eat here.
