    Our experience began with a friendly greeting from the host, even used my name (from reservation). Our waiter was perfect and attended to our every need as pleasantly as Iv'e ever seen. The food was absolutely delicious! It was a great experience in an authentic, stands the test of time, Italian restaurant. Only regret...didn't have room for the desserts!!

    The service was excellent. There were many food options on the menu. Italian dishes, steaks, chops & prime rib, seafood, chicken fingers & French fries & even pasta with marinara for the vegan in the family as well as appetizers & salads. Portions are large, so I got 2 meals from my dinner. Reservations are a good idea especially on weekends.

    i was so happy to find this old restaurant was still open. I remember being brought here by my father in the early 60s. I have been living thousands of miles away for the last 35 years and was so happy to see this place on Open Table. It has been redone and is under new ownership, but I remembered the layout. It has two huge bars. One bar was filled with people eating lunch and chatting with each other. We sat in the dining room. It's not fancy. We had the rigatoni bolognese. It was excellent. Easily as good as any I've had anywhere in my travels throughout Italy. And the value was superb. I'll go back in a heartbeat. The waitress was new and was very professional. She told us all about the special on Wednesday night: three courses <$20.

    On mother's day, we had reservations to another restaurant for 1:00pm. That Sunday morning I received a phone call from the restaurant saying that the kitchen closes at 11:00am?? I scrambled to find another restaurant and came across Alfredo's restaurant that happened to have a open reservation for 1:00pm not knowing the place we decided to try it. The restaurant was very nice and clean, friendly staff, and best of all was the food!!!! This place exceeded any and all of my expectations and what started out to be a bad mother's ended up being a great one!! Thank you open table for finding us a reservation and for introducing us to Alfredo's restaurant!!

    I alway's love going to this restaurant. The food is never disapointing and it is a large menu to choose from. Friendly waiters and staff get you seated quickly, get your drink order and back with it in short minutes jand they notice when your glass gets low. How rare is that? Their discounted specials on Monday & Tuesdays are big enough to make sure I come back again. I always leave with a $20.00 card that I use for my next visit. The prices for drinks & food are very good and the food is not only very good, but plentiful. I never have room for dessert. If this restaurant was around when John Adams & John Quincy Adams were living right down the street I'm sure they would have been regulars.

  • An Off Night, otherwise Good
    Bill
    Dined on 3/29/2014
    Our waitress must have had an off night (we all do at times). Service was less than attentive for the six of us. Swordfish dinner portion was appalling - a child's portion. Lemon chicken rice soup was bland, tasteless and overcooked. Reservation was promptly attended. Lamb chops were dry and quite chewy (first time for this favorite). Still a favorite and we would give it another chance to make good.

    Dinner for 2 on a Friday during lent. Started with the fig and mascarpone ravioli entrée special as a shared appetizer, it was delectable! Would highly recommend this dish if it is available. We both had seafood for dinner. The cod was very flaky, topped with flavorful bread crumbs, and served with fresh green beans on the side, yum! The Seafood Christine had 3 large shrimp and 4 tender scallops in a lemon butter sauce with fresh tomatoes and olives, delicious. We finished dinner with the grape nut pudding. Had always heard great things about this but had never tried it. It stands up to the hype. Very creamy, almost flan like. It was a great way to end our meal. Michael, our served was also fantastic and paced our meal perfectly!

    My husband and I have been to your restaurant more times than we an count and it usually is quite good overall. This past Saturday we took 2 other couples and NOTHING was right. We waited well over an hour for our meal ( after waiting at least 30 minutes for our drinks) .. When we mentioned to host and waiter all we got was an " Kitchen Backed UP" No apologies, no restitution... We have frequented many, many restaurants. upscale and down and usually there would be something to appease the guest.... We got cold food and an incredibly long wait.... A complementary appetizer or drink or dessert or anything would have helped just a little but I"m just not sure.

    Dine with a party of 5 at 8 PM. Service was efficient at first, then it stopped (even though we were the only customers left).Our server simply disappeared and showed up 1/2 hour later with our meals that she placed to the wrong parties at the table.They changed server and he was fantastic! Three of us ordered the Prix Fixe, which became a 4 course meal if chosen from the selections that came with either soup or salad! The bread, barley soup, Calamari Fritte, Eggplant Rollatini, Chicken La Marsala, Carbonara, and Saltimbocca, Veal ScaloppiniI, and the Double Lamb Chops, Cannoli,Tiramisu, and the NY Cheesecake were all delicious! Our server then surprised my daughter with a NY Cheesecake and sang happy b-day to her, much to her delight! E.B

    The management has wisely decided to not changed the decor over the years. Thus, Alfredo's still has the look and feel of a family owned restaurant dating back many decades and that is as important as the food and service. The food and the service is consistently excellent at Alfredo's. We have never been disappointed there.

    We go here frequently and we're never disappointed, unless they run out of the prime rib :) The service is always fantastic as are our meals. We can always count on having a great meal here, from the different pasta dishes to the prime rib, which is one of the best prime ribs we ever had. I love to start with their chicken noodle soup when available, and I had the ravioli with meatballs - I love their meatballs!

    This was the second time I have eaten at Alfredo's in a month's time. The first experience was much more pleasurable than the second. The second was disappointing in that the service was very slow and outside of great appetizers the entree's were ;ess than enjoyable due to temperature being too hot to taste being another shortfall. Unfortunately for Alfredo's this was business dinner with several locals which now will not return/

    This was my first time going to Alfredo's Restaurant. Brought my mom from NC and we had a lovely meal. Service was nice and welcoming, great martini and my mom likes old fashions -- this was the first place here in MA that she said it was made just right! I had the Seafood Christine it was ok - not a lot of flavor in the sauce. We also had the veal parmigana and that was fit for a king. Large portion and very delicious. Will absolutely be back - looking forward to trying something else!

    We dined at Alfredo's this past Thursday and were greeted by Yanni the manager, Debbie the waitress, and Lisa the bartender who treated us, not only as diners, but like family...as they consistantly do with everyone. We dined on pork chops, chicken parm, and haddock, which is always cooked to perfection. This place is a local gem indeed. Why drive into Boston when you can get the same great meal and service right in Quincy at half the price!

    While staying at Marriott in Quincy, we checked open table and reserved at Alfredo on Franklin Street. When I clicked the restaurant information to check the menu, I was excited to see a " 1/2 price meal Monday and Tuesday." My bill showed FULL PRICE! When I questioned the bill and showed the manager on duty a print out of menu and prices,I was told, " I am not aware of this. Mario the owner deals with internet. " I paid the FULL PRICE, returned to my hotel, checked opentable websiteAGAIN and yes, the 1/2 price special appeared in upper righthand corner.

    Food quality was lacking- no taste to Chicken Quincy dish.... table was directly under ceiling cooling system- even our coats could not make the seating comfortable; management could not do anything to change the temperature "its automatic and we can not adjust it"... made for a very cold meal with out of state friends. Will not be in too much of a rush to return to this place. However, the house wines here are very good and reasonably priced, worth mentioning.

    We were a party of seven on a Thursday night and everyone enjoyed their meal and the value. On Wednesday and Thursday night they have a special deal where you get appetizer, entree and dessert for $17.00. It is a full size appetizer, entree and dessert and everyone loved the food. We enjoyed everything that was served. Our waitress was wonderful and went out of her way to make sure all of our requests were made. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    In Boston I would have paid around twice the price for the same menu items. Nothing was over $19 on the Entree list, and the service was good, place was quiet enough. Bar out front had a loud crowd, but the dining area was quiet. I will definitely go again.Also on Monday and Tuesday they give a $10 gift card for dining!

    Been to Alfredo 3x last year, so far so good. Food was great and consistence for a local small restaurant. Servers were friendly and service was quick. Seats were a bit uncomfortable and tight. No frill deco. Their pasta is the best in town, and it is better than any fancy restaurants in Boston! Will be dinning in Alfredo again Thurs., 2/20 for my daughter's b-day celebration, and shall provide another review after that. - E.B

    As a frequent customer to Alfredo's I must ask ... was the chef different? Our chicken cacciatore had a totally different thick sauce which was very disappointing. One of the reasons we go frequently to this restaurant is because of this dish ...and 2 of the 4 ofus ordered it. Salmon was good but shrimp was dripping in sauce which I asked to have put on the side. Will go back but hope the " old recipe : comes back too .

    While it was great to avid the parking debacle in Boston, Alfredo's was fair at best. The ambiance was dated and on a Saturday night there was karaoke going on. The servers were attentive, though certainly not extraordinary. We were with a group of six. The pastas were certainly not homemade and the flavors were extremely simple. Some people really enjoy simple american italian, but this certainly was not the type of dining experience we seek.
