There are many Italian restaurants in and around our community, so many I wonder how they all survive. But this one is consistently enjoyable, excellent veal parmigiana, good wine choices, friendly staff. We enjoy this restaurant for it's comfortable ambience and have often taken friends there.

Terrible experience. After calling ahead and being informed they didn't take reservations, but that there was plenty of space we went there and indeed found a half empty restaurant. But when we asked for a table for 8 they wouldn't accommodate us. The best they would offer is two separate tables of 4 or go somewhere else.... we went to... More

Four of us had dinner at Alforno's. They don't take reservations but we only waited about 5 minutes for a table even though it was crowded. Us gals split the mozzarella app with tomatoes which was delicious. I had veal parm and she had chicken parm as well as her husband. My husband had Tuscan bean soup as he had... More

We had a lovely dinner here. It was a bit noisy on the "porch" room, due to a large family party. Still enjoyed the calamari appetizer, pizza, and gluten free wild mushroom. Delightful server and pleasant evening.

Dinner here with party of 8. 7 people received their entrees...my spouse was waiting for his, a salad. Waiter came to table & said "start eating....his will come!" Which I felt was very rude. I said, no, I was waiting. Do not feel it was his place to say this. People were still eating and wait staff began clearing table,... More

The 3 of us loved our salads, pizza and sangria! We usually choose from the excellent meal selections but last night tried the pizza. Everything here is great. It was punctuated by a very talented young waiter. Sorry not to get his name. He was awesome!

We were driving home to Cape Cod from NJ, and while my husband drove, I tried to Google restaurants along I-95. It was very challenging to read reviews and make a choice. I finally took a chance and had my husband drive to Alforno. I knew from the reviews that the restaurant was in a strip-mall, and so the outside... More

I always stop in here while back in CT. The staff are friendly, and very attentive. The menu selections are great, and the pizza is wonderful if you like a nice thin crust brick oven pizza. I would recommend this restaurant to any one in the Old Saybrook/Westbrook area. The also have the Frequent Pier program for those that get... More
