Authentic Pizza at its Best!

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... read 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!

Went early on a Friday night, got seated immediately although there was a decent sized crowd. Good waiter. Best fried mushrooms we've ever had! Loved the pizza and crust as well.

I like the Big Mike Special and their thin crust. This is a very old restaurant in Lafayette - in a good way - it has stood the test of time. I never order any of the Italian dishes because I ordered the Lasagna once and preferred my recipe - probably because my recipe is not authentic - Ha! but... More

The pizza here is great. Not to thick and it is crispy and flavorful. The kids love the cheese sticks. They couldn't get enough. The pizza was so good I had to bring one home.

I haver never had such a delicious pizza before. It has a crunchy, slim crust, and the sauce is just the right amount to act as a stage for the delicious toppings! No wonder the place has been there for decades. It is really good italian stuff!

Had the pizza. Super good. I'm really picky about my pizza. The crust was thin but not like a cracker. It was delicious. Service was good too. It's never very busy, but don't let that fool you

Pros: Their pizza is the best because the ratio of toppings/sauce/crust is just perfect! The service is always great. Very laid back atmosphere. Cons: On the busiest street in Lafayette But they do deliveries now! So the Con isn't so bad. It's an old establishment, but don't judge the food on that. All in all, if you visit Lafayette and...

A local coworker said the place was a longtime establishment with good food. Upon entering I was concerned that there was only one other patron in the whole place. Being from out of town that concerned me and at 6:15 on a weekday I thought it should be busier. I was quickly greeted and seated at a table. The decor... More
