“Great italian food meets northwoods supper club.”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

The reviews got it right. This is a great place. We arrived around 7pm on a Friday night and were seated immediately. The bread basket was delish. We got a steak entree and the gnocchi and meatballs. The salad was good - not straight iceburg, but more of a mixed greens (with some iceburg.) The "crunchies" were pieces of sesame sticks. (yum.) Also with a piece of tomato, cucumber, and beet. Also had some chicken dumpling soup. Great! The dumplings were tender and broth flavorful (no pieces of chicken or veg though.) Steak was well prepared - cooked perfectly. But the true winner was the gnocchi and meatballs - absolutely divine. Dish size was enormous - we easily made two meals out of each entree. We took banana foster cheesecake to go, which we didn't eat til the next day, we were so stuffed. But when we did, it was fabulous. I'd definitely eat here again. Staff was terrific.

“I love Alice's!”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

I am a former Iron County resident, and when my husband and I would splurge on a dinner out, we always went to Alice's. The pasta, sauces, and breads are all homemade, and it shows. There's nothing particularly fancy here, just good southern Italian cooking. Pasta and meat sauce, for the most part, and also steak and a few other items, including (of course) fish on Fridays. Order a box of onion bread to go.
