We got lucky and found this place on a whim. I must say this was one of the best Italian restaurants we have been to in the last couple years. My daughters ordered the fettuccine alfredo, which is usually a pretty average dish, but like all good dad's I had to sample it to make sure it wasn't poisonous, and... More

One of my favorite Italian restaurants in HB. Everything on the menu is good and you can't go wrong! Outside cafe area is great for being seen.

For a delicious dinner out, my husband and I love the Alessa restaurants. The ambiance and quality of food make it date night worthy. ;) I love their risotto, and also have had delicious canneloni there.

This was recommended by the concierge at the Hyatt. She assured us it was not an Italian tourist trap and it wasn't. There were a few groups of visitors but also several locals. They have several Burrata and Mozzarella appetizers and salads. We tried the special fried Burrata appetizer with tomato sauce. It was so soft and the tomato sauce... More
