Hyde Park has lots of cool places to choose from, but Alfio's is a new favorite. The menu is extensive and features interesting choices such as crab cake ravioli -- yum! The empanada trio was delicious, as were the soups. Nice wine selection and reasonably priced. Desserts sounded wonderful, but we had no room . . . next time!

My wife and I had a great first time experience at Alfio's. In fact we spoke to Chef Alfio and want to have him prepare food for our family Christmas. For dinner we had trout and Angus ravioli, a nice Malbec bottle of wine, mussels and soup appetizers and cappuccinos with peanut butter cheesecake and chocolate caramel tiramisu. Our bill... More

Try the empanada trio! The service was fantastic and everything on the menu sounded delicious so it was hard to make a choice. I had the seafood risotto which was full of shrimp and mussels (although I would have appreciated more lobster and crab in it). I would absolutely go again and highly recommend Alfio's

Alfio's has become one of my favourite places to eat in Cincinnati. (Hyde Park square) The French cut lamp chops are delicious. His caprice salad is great with a variety heirloom tomatoes. The mushroom ravioli is also a favourite. Good value for the dollar. Most times Alfio comes around and greets his customers. They have also willingly supported Habitat's annual... More

Made dinner reservations and when we showed up we were immediately directed to our table. I ordered the Pistachio Crusted Salmon. It was served over butternut squash mashed potatoes and and sauteed green beans. It was delicious and favorable. The plate presentation enhanced its aesthetic appeal. My guests enjoyed their meal and we found it to be reasonably priced. The... More

I brought a friend from out of town as we love Alfio's and his Dishes are delicious. Alfio wasn't here on that Monday but chef Bob did an outstanding job. We tried Keegan's catch of the day and the Opa was tasty and mild. You must try the wine tasting dinners once a month, what a fun time and delicious... More

That seems hard for others to do, but Alfio's does that. We happen to be a couple that has definite preferences for beverages, so right off we were both happy. The local beer scene is booming and they capture a great sample of each. Wines by the glass covered the range. We walked up and there were seats up front... More

The food was much too buttery and creamy for our tastes. There are some appetizers and salads which aren't but that's not really enough of an option (e.g. if we are rating this restaurant based on its salads it just doesn't cut it.) In many cases this was very disappointing. For example one of the specials was a south american... More

After seeing this place on the Best of Cincinnati list in several categories, I was expecting phenomenal food. My husband was really happy with his mussels, but I was a little disappointed with my mahi mahi with risotto, which had so much sauce it was like rice soup. The flavors were great, but it wasn't the perfection I expected based... More

Had a superior meal with family and there was a lot of moaning and sounds of delight from everyone at the table. Our server Steve was both knowledgable and personable. We tried several dishes! Great ambiance...perfect!!!! I wish I could give them a 6!
