“Good Italian food”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

We visited The Alley Cafe on a Saturday evening, a bit early to beat the dinner rush. Our server was quite friendly and took the time to chat with us. We were allowed to share an entree (with my 7 year old) and were given tongs as well as a plate to make things easier. I ordered Pesto do Basilica and my teenager got Fettucini Alfredo. Both were delicious. This is definitely a place we will return to on future visits.

“Great restaurant and meal!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We shared an appetizer (Brie and smoked salmon with crostini--wonderful!), then shared a schnitzel (?sp?) that was a work of art! Beautiful to look at and wonderful to eat! Everything was great--food, service, atmosphere--everything! Great evening at Alley Cafe!

“Cozy and Romantic...”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We checked out reviews for restaurants in Leavenworth and decided upon The Alley Cafe. Loved it! The restaurant is quiet and small. Wait staff attentive and friendly. Food was delicious! I had the Fettucine Alfredo and my husband had the Seafood Fettucine Alfredo. Big servings and good!!

“Alley Cafe”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We love this restaurant and we eat there quite often. It's door really is located in the alley behind the main street but it is worth seeking it out. Their food is always good and there is a great selection of wines too. My favorite dinners there are "Jerusalem chicken" or canneloni, but everything on the menu is excellent. On Friday evenings around 6 PM they have a small jazz group playing. I highly recommend this restaurant and have eaten there dozens of times over the years and the quality never varies.

“Local gem, often overlooked by tourists”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Let's face it, tourists in Leavenworth invariably flock to Visconti's when they want a "fancy" dinner out while on vacation. No less good, however, is the Alley Cafe, tucked into the alley behind Front Street. They serve northern Italian dishes, and both the Jerusalem chicken that my wife had, and the mascarpone pasta I ordered, were heavenly.

The Alley Cafe seems to be the locals' preferred Italian spot in town, and it has a more intimate feel to it. While the "other" place is very good as well, don't think there's only one decent Italian restaurant in town.
