Nice Area

We started out with the bruschetta - which is unlike any other I've ever had. It had caramelized onions and truffle oil.....scrumptious. The zucchini appetizer with goat cheese pesto was just as fabulous. Highly recommend either one. I couldn't make up my mind from the many delectable items on... read more

Alfio's is delicious. I would highly recommend coming here! I really enjoy the Argentinian Italian fusion. For an appetizer I love trying the empanadas, they usually have a special of the day which is fun to try. If you are looking for something light to eat I like the Spinach and Apple Salad. For something very delicious, and savory i... More

We ate here for dinner and we're pleased with the meal and service. If you like ravioli this is a great place to find a wide variety. We loved the cheese cake. The service was great. I would recommend this for a special occasion or for anyone who likes good Italian food.

on 5 point scale ( with 5 being excellant): ambiance 2, food 3.5, value 3, service 3. Pretty middle of the road overall. I would rate Forno Osteria and Bar which is nearby to be much better for about the same price point. Red Feather, Sotto, Via Vite, Zula all in the same price point in the city, much better.... More

I took my husband here for his birthday. He loves Italian food and anything South American, so I was banking on him loving it. Our server was super helpful and guided us throughout our meal. We followed the advice of other reviewers and opted for the empanadas for an appetizer. We did not regret it! There were ingredients in a... More

This was our second visit to Alfio's and it did not disappoint. Had a great server who was knowledgeable with the wine choices. Two folks had the Steak Ravioli. The Ravioli choices at this place are the bomb and should not be discounted. Solid choices and always good. I had a Blue Marlin fish special. Although not a big fan... More

I recently found this place in Hyde Park Square and love it. Their Short Rib Ravioli is amazing. I would also recommend the Empanda Trio appetizer. You will typically need a reservation, but I have stopped in and been able to get a seat at the bar without too much issue. Whether I get a table and have a more... More

We went to this restaurant with a group of friends based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. The chef is a 4th generation Italina from Argentina, hence the blending of the two regions. Me being a vegetarian always complicates things and this is no exception except for the appteizers. Pinot noir from Italy was average. I was told that wine selection... More

A group of nine of us ate at Alfio's last night. We each had something different and each of the tastes were amazing. The appetizers were out of this world. They were so good that we ordered some to take home for the next day. They were all fabulous like I said, but we chose to order the empanadas to... More
