“Excellent quality at a price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I started with smoked salmon which was incorrectly described as medallions of salmon, followed by a delicious fresh pasta and basil pesto main and some cheese to finish. Food was lovely but in hindsight $30 for some pasta and fresh pesto is pushing the boat out a little. Good food, nice atmosphere but pricey.

“Terrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

What a great pity that a restaurant that presents so well should be so bad. The waiters were grumpy and unfriendly, like they did not want to be there making you feel awkward. I had the angel hair lobster pasta main. Over cooked rubbery lobster and the pasta sauce was boring. Yuk is the only word. Perhaps we were just unlucky given the other reviews but I will not be going back and risk a possible second bad experience.

“Great venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

A great venue for a pre-show meal. Excellent choice on the menu, at an affordable price. Bookings appear to be essential if you are not there when the doors open.

“Worthy of a second visit.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Visited on a Monday night and it was quite busy. The menu is quite extensive. I had the seafood risotto and it had quite a bit of seafood but the rice could have been cooked a tad longer. Everyone else enjoyed their pasta, lamb rack and eggplant dishes. The service is not brilliant but not awful either. We will definitely give it another go.

“A Wonderful Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Dining at Alfredo was a real treat. Alfredo is located on a tiny street - an alleyway, actually - and a pleasant walk from our hotel. There is nothing pretentious about the restaurant - it is small, casual, and welcoming. The pianist does a fine job and goes from table to table asking for requests. He has a dry sense of humor and is fun to talk with. The service was very good and the prices reasonable. The wine was nice and food was excellent. Several of us tried different pastas, and almost all pastas offered featured unusual combinations of ingredients. Two of us ordered veal, which was very tender and flavorful. The portions are generous. We didn't want to leave!
