“Best Osso Bocco in the City!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

My husband and I are extremely impressed with the delectable dishes, very affordable and big servings that Alexandra's provide for their customers!

We are now regulars, and will keep coming back because we truly enjoy the delicious, Mediterranean comfort food :)

Try their famous Osso Bocco (gigantic, scrumptious lamb shanks) for just 10.50--the BEST deal and dish in the city!

Very highly recommended, and we know you will, too!

“Best food Always”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Me, my wife and my coworkers often eat at this place either dine in or take out. They always have prompt service. We love the daily special, My favourite has to be the curried special and the seafood platter. Highly recommend to anyone into Mediterranean cuisine.

“Delicious pasta!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

My friend and I noticed an advertisement for $8.95 pasta and decided to stop in. The food was delicious! Not only that but the portion sizes were very large. We had excellent service and greatly enjoyed our meals. We will definitely back. We can't wait to try more
