Atlantis' Cafe Alfresco--Refreshing

Wonderful ambiance, excellent, friendly service and Very good sandwiches. The Gelato is superb. I have spent a lot of time in Italy--sooo...you have to try their Gelato. Very good value for the dollar. Cream of Asparagus soup was a 10. Very good fries also.

I usually only order a couple appetizers as I arrive late in the evening. The garlic shrimp are the best anywhere and their salads are large and well priced. Open late (11 pm) so I can get in a late night snack. If I miss them, the Purple Parrot is open 24/7. Good place there too.

Late dinner, but the food and service were very good. We really enjoyed the salad with 1/2 portion pasta dish and the salad with personal pizza. The pasta dish was more than enough of a serving for dinner . The regular size portion must be huge.

After spending my usual birthday time in the spa, I went to this restaurant. The food is good, but a little pricey. I did get to see some of the Thunder From Down Under guys who came in to eat so I had some eye candy to enjoy with my lunch!

A great place for lunch or dinner. My favorite item is the Pasta Sampler which gives you a generous portion of any pasta dish on the regular menu and a fresh salad. There is also Brick oven pizza that is delicious if pasta isn't your thing or you want something different. To top off your meal or simply have a... More

Fine place for a quick bite, though it was basic cafeteria type food. Nothing memorable, but good in a pinch. The staff was friendly, which is always a plus.

The restaurant seemed fairly small, but we were seated right away on a late Tues evening. It had a pretty good selection of wine on the menu. My husband and I shared the Atlantis pasta (with shrimp and scallops) and the garlic shrimp appetizer. The shrimp appetizer was excellent. The pasta was just OK. We also shared a chocolate cake...

A good place to get a quick bite in between casino games. Great service, superb ambiance and delicious, simple food. No regrets here!
