I had the Seafood Fettuccine. At $26.00, it was a little pricey, but well worth it. Being as local, I always look for the restaurant to take people who visit, and this restaurant is by far the best one. Although it only opens at 4 PM, the wait is well worth it. The best dinner I have had here in... More

Looked for something new to our usual dining spots since we live in the area; it has been several years since we last dined here. The food was very good to excellent. The service was okay and the delivery was super slow. My wife was more concerned than I as we were entertaining guests. I would certainly visit again and... More

Was there about a year ago and came in without reservation. We needed to get to a show and after waiting for 1/2 hour just to get water, expressed our desire for service to the owner. We were told off as " we should know better than to expect fast service without reservation" We left very unhappy but after reading... More

After a dismal dinner our first night in Leavenworth, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised and pleased with our dinners at The Alley Cafe. I ordered the cannelloni and he the manicotti. Both were super! We did not order a salad, but with the generous portion of fresh vegetables accompanying our entrees, we had more than enough food. There... More

This place is cozy and unique. They have the BEST lobster bisque, and baked halibut! PLUS their pasta with mascarpone is truly addictive. Good wine list also!

Good food, huge portions, great service, reasonable wine list, and quiet. This was recommended by the locals, and for good reason.
