The food was good and very artfully arranged. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The only drawback was that we were seated right by the door that leads from the bar area to the dining room, which is small, so my husband had to keep leaning forward to avoid being bumped. It was the only table available so moving... More

My food was excellent, but my husband's was not. Waiter was friendly and it seemed like a local hangout. Lesson be learned-eat German food when in Leavenworth. Probably will not return.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who walked us to it. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, The food is excellent, portions a little too large. So nice to get something other than German food(although they have some on the menu). My only complaint was sand in the scallops. The mushroom ravioli was delicious.

Run of the Mill - Not a true Italian Restaurant as German Fare still on menu, Great little spot - could be great with right menu!. Very poor lighting. Awful wine even at $28 a bottle!

We recommended the Alley Cafe to meet some friends at and ended up being a little embarrassed. When we arrived we asked if our friends had arrived yet as they had the reservation. Were told oh yeah, they are in the other room, but were not directed there. They were not actually in the other room but hadn't arrived yet.... More

When visiting Leavenworth we always duck into the Alley Cafe to warm up with a bottle of wine and one of their wonderful appetizers while waiting for the Christmas Town Lighting ceremony to begin. The owner Steve is always the quintessential host and the staff is warm and friendly as well. It's a destination place while in Leavenworth!
