We recently returned to Alfrescos for our second visit and again loved it. The food is delicious and the service so friendly and attentive. There is plenty of space for groups and some street parking nearby. The pizza is great and we really enjoyed our pasta too. Prices are reasonable.

A busy, friendly atmosphere greets you on a weekend night, adding to the vibe of the place. Service with a smile and no expectations as to getting out early. The food presentation is great, choice is extensive and prices are very reasonable. Also, still BYO wine dining.

Never have been to this part of Australia before, but the hubs had to go for business. We spent a week in the beautiful beach area of Surfer's Paradise. We learned pretty fast that the restaurants that line the the beach front area in the main part of Surfer's paradise were not that great of restaurants- some of the worst... More

Ordered an eye fillet.....steak was very poor quality and over cooked. They replaced the steak only to receive another that was exactly the same.....apparently medium means burnt to some people .....to top it off .......the sauce tasted like hot cream with zero flavour. Top dollar charged for the worst steak i have ever had in this life.....

Great atmosphere, vibrant and lively. The amount of customers is testament to the quality. Really great food, the Meatballs and Spaghetti are brilliant and so fresh, definitely try the Garlic Bread for starter. You will need an empty Stomach as the portions are very generous 😀Would recommend to any for an authentic Italian experience.

Our 2nd time here in 5 months and the only reason for the gap in visits is because we live in Melbourne Try the garlic pizza bread and the marinara pizza. Best I have had in years

You don't get to use the term experience with a restaurant often - but Alfresco certainly deserves it. Met at the door with enthusiasm - Raffaele I imagine! Well what an outstanding host. It was Mothers Day and the place was pretty busy for dinner. Beautiful food. I prefer authentic pizza - less is more. Got it. Awesome. The lasagne... More
