“Eat with the Locals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

This restaurant is not one we would have ever found on our own but luckily for us, it was recommended by a local. We are so glad we went and we have been back and brought friends with us and everybody was extremely happy with their meal. I am already thinking about what to order next time.
The restaurant is located in a strip mall but the moment you walk through the door, it is like being in Italy. The decor reminded me of trattorias visited in Italy. You are warmly welcomed by the host and there is a list of specials posted on a chalkboard. The regular menu is extensive but we have always ordered from the daily specials. The servers are attentive and you are not rushed through your meal. It is an eating experience and the owner kept dropping by to make sure we were happy.
Once your drink order is delivered, the garlic knots arrive! We enjoyed the fresh Mediterranean sea bass dinner very much. We were so glad when the owner came to our table and removed the "extra parts" for us. Last time we went, we ordered swordfish and it was really wonderful. A large portion of fresh vegetables and rice accompanied our meals. Depending on your order, different types of homemade bread arrive to accompany your dinner. We could choose from a cup of soup or salad to start our meal. We were too full for dessert!
Our friends ordered from the menu and were very happy with their choices. There was another special where two could dine for a very reasonable price. Choices for this special included a shared appetizer, each person can select an entree and then there is a shared dessert. There were a few choices for each course to choose from.
Others in the restaurant ordered pizza and it looked very yummy and seemed to be a popular choice with many customers.
There was homemade bread to purchase so we were glad to add that to our bill on leaving.
We have always made a reservation and the place is surprisingly busy so you may want to do that or call ahead. If you are visiting the area and like Italian food, I think you will find this restaurant worth the drive. The food is top quality, freshly prepared and served with European flair. If you are a local, you've probably been there. Enjoy!

“You feel like you are in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

The food is freshly made, crisp salads artistically arranged, sauce that taste like homemade Italian, and prices the are very reasonable. I have tried the Antipasto Italiano which was meal in itself. My friend had the lasagna which was very tasty, and a large portion. The restaurant itself has wonderful ambiance and the waitstaff is helpful and attentive. A very nice dining experience.

“very disappointed valentine”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We had a 5:00 reservation and didn't get our entre until 6:00. The garlic bread was late, and burned. My lasagna had very little meat and part of that was grissle. The battery operated candle was a bit hokey. The waitor was very nice and apologetic. We won't go back.

“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Alfredo's is Italian food prepared fresh by Italians. From Osso Buco to pizza, everything is prepared to order. Pasta is made in-house, as are the sauces. Some real unexpected treats.

Waitress poured me a glass of water. I found a clear colored candy wrapper floating in my water glass. Will never eat there again.
