A word from Alfredo of Rome
In it's Rockefeller Center location, Alfredo of Rome joins its award winning predecessors at Epcot Center in Walt Disney World and the original Alfredo of Rome where in 1914,the original fettuccine Alfredo was invented. New York's new 8000 square foot installment offers a contemporary twist on the classic Roman fare that made Alfredo a household name and, of course, the irresistible only original Fettuccine Alfredo. Celebrities and heads of state have made Alfredo's their home away from home. Alfredo N.Y. is no exception. What attracts them? May be it's the heralded authentic Italian cuisine. Or perhaps their often talked about wine list (winner of the Wine spectator award from 20001-2005.)Certainly the Hirschfield’s adorning the walls can't help but draw attention.

Alfredo of Rome reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Good food, nice folks

    Dined on 5/30/2013
    The staff was professional and the food was good; I had the house Fett. Alfredo, obviously their specialty, and I thought it was a good representation of a classic dish, not too cheesy, not too much sauce, just right. My only complaint would be that the chef was going for more inoffensive than dramatic, maybe true to original Italian home-style cooking, not bad, but could have been bolder in the spices. Also consider this-- many restaurants in the Rockefeller Center blocks are expensive but bad; Alfredo's is not inexpensive, but provides good food.

    Visiting New York with my mom and grandma for the first time and found it on the around me app. It was pricey but the food ambiance and service were worth it. We had the trio entree and split it 3 ways it was perfect for us. Had a glass of wine and then chocolate cake and pistachio ice cream for dessert. Very pleased with it all :)

    Went for Lunch on rainy Sunday afternoon with 1:00 PM Reservation for three. Six other two tops in restaurant only one of which came in before we did. Ordered from the Prefix menu. Had to place order for all 3 courses immediately. First course came out in about 15 minutes and I kid you not, the second course came out 1 hour and 25 minutes after the first course. Hadtheater tickets for a 3 PM performance. Barely scoffed down entree, had dessert packed to go. Second time dining there, our first experience was exactly the opposite. Food came out too quickly with entree arriving at the table before we could possibly finish the first course. This was on a busy Saturday evening. Seems that the kitchen needs help with timing.

    We have heard of Alfredo as one of the best italian restaurants, featuring the famous fetuccine Alfredo's. The environment was too informal for the type of dinner we were having, the service was poor and the food was nothing special; it was OK, but I would not rank this as a good italiant restaurant, nor would I recommend it to a friend.

    This is a nice, comfortable, cozy Rockefeller Plaza-area mainstay. A nice place to take out-of-towners. The food is tasty and comforting, but not extraordinary. The wine list is respectable, but not outstanding. The ambiance is all right, but now awe-inspiring. All in all, I recommend Alfredo for occasions when you need or want to be near Rockefeller Plaza, with guests who will consider the food phenomenal because they don't know how amazing New York restaurant menus can be.

    Always a treat to eat here. I come here for both business and family diners. Great for dates as well! The food is fantastic...try the Fettucine Alfredo. Out of this world! Service was very good, and my clients were very happy with my choice. Mario will take good care of you. As always, I'll be back.

  • Alfredo's of Rome is not quite
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 4/6/2013
    Alfredo's of Rome is not quite the same as eating in Rome of course, but then Rockefeller Plaza is not in Rome either! So when I'm going to be attending an event at Radio City Music Hall or doing something in the general vicinity I make a reservation at Alfredo's of Rome because I know that the Artichoke Appetizer is going to be a delight! As Italian restaurants go this one is not quite as vegetarian friendly as others (Alfredo, pomodoro and of course they will make up a pizza too), but the menu has a nice variety of competent, reliable and good dishes. The pastas,and the risottos are cooked and seasoned perfectly. I had the special risotto, lobster and zucchini and it was just yummy!

    The food was good but overpriced. The service was friendly but very slow. The server said the kitchen was backed up but tables seated after us were served before us. It took an hour to recieve our main course and we did not have a starter. The tables were close together and the servers kept running into the back of my chair each time they passes our table.

    This was the worst restaurant experience. The Fettucine Alfredo, their specialty, was dry and tasteless. The lasagna was inedible it was so bad. The wait staff was inattentive, even though it was early and there were not very many customers. The prices were high, considering the total lack of quality in the food. The art deco decor was tired looking. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!

    For the price, the service was just plain slow. No sense of urgency whatsoever. It was the kind of slow when you find yourself looking around hoping to make eye contact with at least someone to help... Food was pretty good. Location was good, as we were going ice skating at the Rock afterward. This was our second time dining here over two NYC trips...I think we'll dine elsewhere next time...

    We went on a COLD Sunday evening. The play was not crowded, but it took longer than usual to get our food. That was OK though because we weren't in a rush to get back out in the cold. The salads were enjoyable and the Fettucine Alfredo was excellent like always. The prices are a bit expensive for what it is, but we always enjoy the meal.

    This place was recommended to me by a friend. Everything was fantastic. My only complaint was it took forever to leave. When I finished my food, we say for about 20 minutes before I was able to flag down my waitress. Dinner was last on the things to do that night but if we had other plans I might have been upset.

    The restaurant was nice, servers were amicable and fast. My boyfriend and I ate the three course meal and they were on time serving our plates. The food on the other hand was ok. Appetizer was fettuccine alfredo, their signature, but it wasn't that great. The smell was strong, maybe because I am not a fan of smelly cheeses. Second course was lasagna, which was better but just ok. Third course was a chocolate soufflé, which I can say trying it for the first time wasn't bad. Overall experience nice place to visit at least once just to see if you will go again. Just try it and have fun. Bill was $150.00 by the way.

    We've eaten at Alfredo's numerous times over the years before/after taking in a show and have usually been quite pleased. This time however, we were seated in the loud bar area (not conducive to conversation) and were practically ignored by the wait staff, needing to ask multiple times for water, bread, etc. Our appetizers were late coming out and then followed up too quickly with our main courses, which were not hot. The plate of fettuccini Alfredo that we traditionally order to share was smaller than usual and very dry, lacking the eponymous sauce.

    The food was good, not great - but the service was really lovely. We went with our 84 year old in-laws and asked for a quiet table. They put un in a corner booth in the back room that was cozy. The front of the restaurant is more lively, so there is something for everyone.

    The food was great but the service wasn't. The bus boys and workers who come around taking plates and filling water glasses were excellent, my water glass was never empty but the actual waiter was not. Waited 10 minutes to get a menu and ordered a Sprite which never came. Our waiter only came to the table 3 times. First to bring the menus, came back to take the order, came back a last time with the check. (Wasnt in eye-sight when the food came which would have been a problem if our order was wrong). The place was busy but I was able to see him working the register and putting in orders. Seating is nice and overall it's a great place to go out to eat but the service from my specific waiter was sub par.

    They should update the online menu so the pricing is consistant with the actual menu pricing at the restaurant, as it is higher than the online menu, or put a disclaimer on it. Food was very good, except one of the three portions were very small, service was good considering how busy they were.
