We actually saw this restaurant from the road and decided to give it a try. Service was immediate and friendly. Feels like an older home that's been renovated. Outdoor seating was nice but we chose indoors. We ordered the lobster ravioli in aurora sauce and the lasagna. My lobster ravioli was very good, the creamy aurora sauce and sautéed shrimp... More

Our group of four had various dishes. All were good. The house bread was somewhat bland. Drinks very good. Although a bit pricey we would definitely return. Outstanding service

Had a very nice dinner. Convenient location and very good service. Had the Cannelloni and my wife had the spinach ravioli.

Nice atmosphere as you enter, friendly greeting and it was nice to be seated right away. Great food, great wine, we all enjoyed our food. Next day my friend called me to meet for dinner next Saturday and she suggested Ali's Bistro. I told her was just there but I would certainly not mine going again.

It was OK food, was good very expensive. My ice tea was half-full, they topped it off and charge me for two drinks. So I paid six dollars for one iced tea . Little things like that irritate me. Server was nice. My wife salad was OK they didn't ask her what kind of dressing and just put some kind... More

Had an office function here for the holidays. Dinner was good but service was slow. Can be a bit pricey but again the food was good.

We went here for our Friday night date night. Initially service took a while but once our waitress found us, she did a very good job. Attentive, polite, friendly, effective. We had a house salad to start. It was OK. They had a special on any 12 inch pizza and a special martini. Neither one was special. The martini was... More

We stopped here while on vacation for lunch and we weren't sure if we were dressed appropriately ( casual) but went anyway and it was fine. Service was great, but we were the only ones there. Food was very good ( margarita pizza & eggplant parm). Beautifully set tables and would make a great place for showers, meetings,girls get together,... More

We went here for lunch today. We chose this restaurant over Clemenzas even though my son said we should try Clemenzas instead. Next time we will try Clemenzas. We were disappointed with the bruschetta. It was somewhat flavorless. We had to ask for bread with our meal three times. My son's penne was boring and overcooked. My husband enjoyed his... More

The place was great! Definitely will be back for dinner... The piccata was amazing as was Ali's salad. Had both with a cheesecake and my gf had an espresso and the bill was around $46, all in all, great value for the caliber of food.
