Typical small Paris restaurant near Eiffel Tower with tables on the pavement. Waiter was friendly.
Pizzas had a good thin yet crisped base and the toppings were fresh. My Quatre Saisons was good as was the Quatre Fromages.
My wife's pasta was average though. A tagliatelle with ham with no great flavour.
Rated good between 3/5 and 4/5 really

Great little Italian restaurant near the Eiffel Tower. The food is good ; nice choice of pizzas, but they also have tradionnal lasagna and veal which turned out more than satisfying.
The service is courteous and surprisingly quick.
If you are looking for a sure value, don't hesitate to choose this restuarant

My wife and I finished off our trip to Paris with a very nice meal at Alfio. The food, from the appetizers through to the desserts and the irish coffees were very well prepared, delicious, and reasonably priced. Good location, close to the Eiffel Tower and the staff were friendly and attentive.

If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Paris, we will certainly make our way back to Alfio for a taste of Italy in Paris.

We decided to visit Alfio's based upon TA reviews and the wish to vary our restaurant experiences in Paris, after several nights of traditional French food.
Alfio's has very good food and the service was prompt. The location is easy to find, right across from the Champs de Mars.
