“Very Good Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I love the 4 cheese pizza. Get it well done and add Riccotta cheese. It is excellent. Food is good and service is usually good. Close to the office, I eat here at least twice a month.

Prices are okay. Service at lunch is reasonably quick.

“Just good basic Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Ran into Alfio's in Chevy Chase after finding out Frescatti's had closed. Wonderful experience. The food was delightful--simple, but just right. Very resonably priced. The wait staff was very attentive. Highly recommended.

“Old World”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Alfio's is a standard Italian restaurant. We enjoyed our meal but it was not outstanding. It was convenient to our hotel and we were not anxious to drive or take a cab somewhere. It was quiet and clean and the food was good.

“Good Restaurant, Great Atmosphere and Nice food, but Pricy and Small Portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

This restaurant is a classic Italian grille. That said, there are a lot of chicken, seafood, and veal options on the menu. As far as variety, the menu is fairly extensive for a restaurant of its kind. The actual food is quite tasty but the portions were extremely small, and the only available side was pasta. Also, the salad bar was nothing to write home about either. And everything on the menu was a little pricey. If you do eat here however, I would recommend you get the canolli for dessert; it was the best one I've ever had. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant for anyone not on a budget.
