Good food, service & prices

Food was good, staff were very friendly, prices were very reasonable. Beer menu light on choice, but overall a very nice experience. Would recommend for good Italian food.

This restaurant was recommended by a local from town and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious although one friend said the chicken cacciatori was under seasoned. The mushroom ravioli and the schnitzel were perfect as was the pear chicken salad. Wonderful service and nice ambiance. Would definitely recommend and go again.

This place was great. The service was good enough but the food was amazing. We avoided the steak from previous reviews and stuck to the Italian food. My wife got the Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken and I got the Manicotti. the Fettuccine was good and the Manicotti was amazing! If your in the mood for a large stuffed pasta shell... More

As a local, this restaurant prepares delicious European food with generous servings that often necessitate a take out box. Exceptional wine list featuring German white Mosel wines. Friday night soft live contemporary music makes the evening so much more enjoyable. For a restaurant of good quality in this town, the prices are lower than expected, making our visits price worthy.... More

My wife and I went to The Alley Cafe after a hearty recommendation from the couple we were staying with. The ambiance of the restaurant was nice, with low lights, and quality decor. The service, however, was lacking the entire time we were there. Our waitress seemed hurried and peeved at our every question. It was difficult to get her... More

The atmosphere is European and friendly. We enjoyed a window seat which allowed us to see all the Christmas lights decorating the town. the servings were generous, I tried, but could not finish the delicious lasagne.

The food was wonderful and we loved the intimate space. In a busy "tree lighting" time in the town, this little restaurant was a fabulous find. The staff was friendly and the experience was perfect!

They did warn us that a wedding party of 30 was just seated and it would be awhile before we got our food. However, it didn't look like they had enough wait staff or cooks to handle the crowd and I'm sure the wedding party had made advance reservations. All the restaurants had big crowds before Christmas and they seemed... More

Went for lunch were the first in. Service was a little slow to begin with but food was excellent. Nice quiet atmosphere. Would be great for a romantic dinner for two.
