My husband and I ate here last night after reading about Alfresco's on Trip Advisor. We were looking for a restaurant with more options than the usual burger or fish 'n chips and Alfresco's definitely delivered! Lots of choices and amazing service! I have a nut allergy and our server made sure to give us plenty of recommendations and talk... More

Any time we on Gold Coast this is the only place we come to eat out for dinner - meets all expectations. The menu offers great choice of variety and the garlic bread as a starter is the best. Very friendly welcome and always busy yet fast efficient service.

We went here recently for a work event. 20 of us turned up, with no booking (after another restaurant let us down). They could not do enough for us. The food was amazing, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was fantastic. I would go back again. We had such a great time, all of us were talking about it... More

Best place to have Italian food in gold cost. We dinned there a couple of times and in each the food was delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful with all our special requests. Good gluten free variety.

~on a family trip to Brisbane I'd lookup TripAdvisor and visited a large Italian bistro... Alfresco on Elston twice! ~dinner was fabulous with a great waiter who regaled us with stories of his childhood and how the came to work on the Gold Coast, recommendations were normal Italian fare and everything was expected until dessert which was what brought us...
