Last night my husband and I went to dinner to Alfios with two other couples. My husband, who ordered tortellini, and a friend seated to my right, who had ordered pizza with a couple of toppings, heard me to very clearly tell the server that I wanted a plain "cheese and tomato" pizza, and a side order of broccoli. Later,... More

Alfio's is a regular stop for us when we are in the DC area. The front on the restaurant is in an odd place but don't let it trick you. The furnishings are old but add to the great atmosphere at this restaurant. The salad bar is excellent. Service is always given with a smile. Do not miss out on... More

The place has probably not changed in any way (other than ownership) since Nixon was president. Carryout/delivery has been pretty good and prices are reasonable. At a late dinner on a weeknight the dining room was empty. They serve bread--nothing special and the salad bar--also nothing special with American or cheddar cheese stacked high--some of it stale and browned. The... More

We have been coming to Alfios for 14 years. We first discovered it when we were looking for a place for our rehearsal dinner. We found they had a private room. We tried it out before hand and enjoyed. We have been coming back again and again! My husband tries something new everytime and is always happy. I stick with... More

First time at Alfio's tratorria. The food was average italian. The fried squid and eggplant parmesan are two of the best dishes.They have great customer service! I would recommend if there wasn't a better option around.

My extended family loves Alfio's and their charming staff. The decor is intentionally a fun throwback to another time and place - a bit like GrandBudapestHotel. The food is served in large portions, so show up hungry!

This is a delightful traditional Italian restaurant with a staff that is genuinely caring. I was at a business dinner event on Wednesday night. We had "the back room" which was warmly appointed feeling much like a dining room save all of the armor hanging on the walls. There was a group of 15 of us - the room could... More

The restaurant was not crowded and we were seated quickly. The 5 of us had a variety of seafood and pasta. The entres were good and tasty. We had 2 bottles of... More

I hate this place. And I eat here twice a month because a group in which I am a member insists on holding meetings here. Alfio's is a geriatric throwback. The décor is as tired and insipid as grandma's worn out bedroom slippers. The place could use a good hosing out with a steaming pressure washer too. The bathrooms are... More
