“Bad birthday dinner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

The food and service were horrible. They rushed everything like they needed the table back right away. I would have given it back and went somewhere else if I knew it was going to be that bad. I wouldn't send my worst enemy there.

“A Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Easton's hidden gem. Great food, huge menu, good wines at great prices. Lots to like here. The food is authentic Italian. Service can be a little slow but just relax and enjoy the food. The fresh bread and butter is addictive.

“Superior Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

One of our favorite restaurants in Easton. Don't let the location in the shopping center fool you. The owner is an Italian chef and a good one! Only fresh ingredients are used and true Italian menu selections are offered. Any pasta dish is perfect. The mussel's are great and ask for the Cod Salad. Really every dish is excellent and the daily specials will keep you coming back again.
The house chianti is good and the restaurant offers an extensive wine list. Above average
value and good place for foodies. The only place we dine for our Italian meals.

“Unpretenciously delectable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Wonderful dining experience. Both my GF and I have eaten all over the world, in Italy two weeks ago. This was a wonderful restaurant. Excellent service, excellent food and excellent prices. Surprising prices to be exact considering the tourist meca the restaurant is located in.

My GF suffers from Celiac disease so she cannot eat glutten at all. She set her heart on a stuffed and breaded pork tenderloin dish. Like any restaurant the complex assembly was made ahead of time and cooked to order. But for her the chef (owner) assembled it from scratch without the breading and without missing a beat. It was excellent, as was my Flounder Paul Bocuse.

The white sparkling wine he recomended was unusual but perfect for the hot weather and barely priced above retail.

The food we ordered, a mix of complex and simple, was excellent all around. Ellegant and well executed.

Watching the open kitchen was like watching a one man orchestra playing a symphony.

The service was great, unassuming and efficient. The young lady described the dishes well and was there when needed full of smiles and exuding friendlyness.

The chef and owner, Alfredo, took time to say hello and chat more than a minimum. He is fluent in Spanish as well as his native Italian and English of course.

Since the restaurant is not in the heart of town it is probably missed by many a tourist... their loss... this restaurant is a "MUST VISIT" for any local and tourist in the state!

“Fantastico, Marvelous, Delicious!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

We encountered the Osteria Alfredo by browsing on the internet, and were fascinated by the place. Very nicely decorated, a real "ambiance" that makes you feel good from the very minute you enter. The hostess very nice and accommodating, knows her specials and makes one feel very welcomed. Alfredo comes out of the kitchen and greats everybody....wow, it is an open kitchen and you can see a master at his craft......he is superb cooking and creating fantastic dishes! I strongly recommend this place for people that know real Italian cooking, that like Pasta al Dente, and the real stuff!!! One of the best restaurants I have encountered in a very long time! Gracias Alfredo, will think of you when I am back in Dom. Rep.
