I remember going to Alesi's in the mid-1950s to have "pizza pie", something never before heard of in Lafayette. Wow! Blew me away. Have been a fan ever since. They serve a full menu of Italian treats but I have never been able to get past their pepperoni and mushroom pizza. Tends to be greasy but, man, is it good.

The building leaves much to be desired! However, it's quaint and private! The service was exceptional! The fried mushrooms were not stuffed but breaded and delicious! I had chicken parmesan and my husband had spaghetti. The entrees came with an excellent salad. Both of our entrees were delicious and more than enough food! We will definitely return! I highly recommend... More

People are rude, the pizza is mediocre, and prices are sky high. Wish it was the old Alesi's. Pizza has no flavor. Got the seafood manicotti once and it was dry and tasted really fishy. Not recommended.

We were intriqued by the old-fashioned sign, so we decided to give Alesi's a try. We read on the menu that the restaurant had been around for 50 years. We could certainly see why. The pizza was great. The service was wonderful too. The decor of the restaurant is dated, but we found that it only added to the atmosphere.

This place used to be one of my favorites but unfortunately the quality has become very low while the prices are high. Last time I eat there, I ordered veal. Rather than actual cuts of veal, I got a patty of low quality ground meat. The patty was of such low quality that it contained, cartilage and ligament material. And... More

Every dish we have tried, we have liked. I have been a customer for more than 50 years. Service has always been great.

We haven't had pizza at Alesi's in quite some time, so we thought we'd give them a try. Big mistake... We ordered a Canadian bacon "base" pizza, with some added ingredients. The "Canadian bacon" was the boiled ham you'd buy from a supermarket for a ham sandwich. The mushrooms were out of a can, NOT fresh mushrooms. The bell pepper... More

Now granted, this is based on one visit and we didn't have the pizza. But what we did have was mediocre - we wouldn't recommend either of these dishes. My husband had the shrimp fettucini alfredo - the noodles certainly weren't fettucini; they looked like fat egg noodles. The sauce was quite bland, not a hearty cheesy flavor that would... More

Alesi's is the best Italian food on the planet! Their Shrimp Pizza is to die for! Their Lasagna is the best, and you can't go wrong with the Steaks either! Perfection!

We had not been here in years but decided to give it a try. We were a party of 12 and it was a great experience! We ordered the three of the suggested pizza and all were excellent! The breading on all of the fried appetizers is exactly the same. Quite thick, I might add. When they are all next... More
