I will keep this one short. Please don't get me wrong, the food was nice and fresh but for the price and very poor service, I will not be returning to this venue again. We experienced a lot of attitude from the girl behind the counter when querying our order even though it had been over 20 mins since we... More

Said it before Alfresco is fantastic and Raff the manager is outstanding. We started with mushrooms with tomato sauce! I had the pizza Marina for main which was outstanding and my wife had the lasagne. Both served immediately and again make sure you book ahead as tables fill up fast!! So worth your while going to alfresco, you shouldn't be... More

If you are visiting the gold coast I recommend you eat here over any other restaurant! The seafood marinara was quite on honestly the best i have ever had in my life (I almost ordered another bowl for desert) Speaking of desert - make sure you order one! The service was top level and the restaurant had a real Italian... More

we have been here a number of times over the years and I must say it is not as good as it was, staff that served us was friendly and efficient, however they appear to be running between the 2 parts of the restaurant. the pizza was hot and tasty however the centre of the base was very wet, disappointing

With so many average Italian restaurants around the Gold Coast area it is refreshing to find this one. The food was great and so too was the service. I ate the veal parmigiana and my wife had the bug pasta. Although the prices are a little higher than other Italian restaurants in the area the quality and quantity of the... More

My partner and I enjoyed our dinner here. We had the crommos pizza and it was fantastic but unfortunately the parmesan and rocket salad we also ordered was so saturated in olive oil we could barely eat it, which was disappointing considering a bit of cheese and rocket cost $13!! The restaurant is pretty hectic too with waitstaff running around... More

We started with their tomato pizza for entree but it was so under cooked the tomato was still cold (not a patch on the photo on the menu of lovely caramelised tomato and golden cheese). The mussels were in a nice tomato sauce (but so salty). Pizza was fantastic but pasta was average. Miles ahead of Vapiano in surfers but... More
