“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

Just returned from this Italian restaurant and were very impressed! We were promptly seated, offered our menus & recommended the mushroom soup of the day which we both had, which was delicious. I had a four cheese pizza and my wife had the gnocchi, both were lovely and definitely the best meal we'd had in Prague. The bill came to a total of £24 for the both of us. This included 2 soups, 1 pizza, 1 gnocchi, a flatbread and two alcoholic drinks each. We thought this was excellent value in a lovely romantic setting. Highly recommended!

“Very good late dinner”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Went for a later dinner - around 10:00 pm - with my two sons to Alfornos, on Petrske Namesti 4, Prague 1. We still were not the last guests to come but were received still very friendly. We ordered three different pizzas which were very large and crispy, just like the best pizzas we experienced during this years summer trip to Italy. Some housewine by the glass - Montepulciano - was recommended and went very well with the food. Nice service, very good food resonable prices, a pitty we did only try it out at the end of our trip to Prague. Higly recommendable.

“Just average food and service”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We had an affordable dinner here without any big negative or positive surprises.

We shared an appetizer of vitello tonnato which was quite good. For main course we had lasagne (from the primi=first courses list) which looked like school food. It tasted better fortunately.

My "trota" (trout fish) was OK, but not seasoned pretty much at all, and came only with some cooked vegetables. There was no sauce or any attempt to make the plate look tempting. It would not take much more effort to get to a bit more sophisticated level.

Their house white wine was very good and affordable. They also seemed to have a nice selection of wines in bottles.

Observing what people ordered to other tables, pastas and pizzas looked nicer, so I guess they are better. This place was almost full of local people today and yesterday. That's the reason we decided to try this place close to our hotel.

Service was OK, but not specially friendly. At least one of their waitresses actually speaks Italian, but speaking the same language didn't seem to bring us extra points as custuomers.

It was warm enough to eat outside, and there was a cozy and relaxed atmosphere.

Reviewed August 28, 2012

Was in Prague for a week and ate lunch in Alforno the last day with my wife, the staff were excellent and service good. They had the usual pizzas and other Pasta dishes but decided to try Rabbit done with olives and mash, was not disappionted, this was excellent. Did have soup to start which the waitress described as" meat", turned out to be Tripe, again could not falt it, delicious. We sat outside the resturant which was emaculate, with great presentation and very clean, beer, wine and food was great price and only short walk from all main atractions in old town, will be back!
