    Once again Cafe Alfredo hit another home run! Every single dish was perfect! Our server, Steve, made sure that our total experience was a sheer joy as we were introducing our friends to our favorite restaurant. They enjoyed it as much, if not more, than we did.

    Poor service. Mediocre food, overcooked pasta. Not up to usual standards. Steve knew the couple next to us and was all over them...seemed really uninterested in us. I ordered veal picata, which was extremely tough. One of the couple we were "introducing" to the cafe ordered Penne pasta and was served spaghetti. We have come to Cafe Alfredo often, never had such poor service and just okay food. I decided to send the veal back because I knew it was not up to their standards, and ordered Chicken Parmesan. It was an extremely small serving (usual servings are quite large). When the bill came.....he had NOT removed the veal to replace it with the chicken....just left it on. I did not ask for it to be changed, I was done.

    I liked the menu and the quality of the food; however, the tables are close and the acoustics are awful. It's not romantic, because it's not condusive to conversation. Waiters were attentive, but not overly helpful. I would go back, but not rushing.

    We were celebrating two birthdays & everything was handled beautifully. I had preordered three appetizers (calamari, asparagus Parmesan & clams casino) to be served once everyone was seated. All three were absolutely Spot-on with flavor & presentation. We all ordered various entrees - I went with the Chef's Recommendation of the Fresh Fish of the day- it was absolutely the best I had ever had. Everyone enjoyed their meals with one of the standouts being the octopus salad. My husband had the Cioppino- it was simply brimming w/seafood including a lobster tail. We've been here before and have NEVER been disappointed with any dish or the service, which is unheard of in this town! We will continue to frequent Cafe Alfredo for that simple reason!

    Staying in Naples for a business conference, and my wife and I wanted some good Italian food. Cafe Alfredos was listed in all of the restaurant guides as being one of the better places. They were right. Good food, excellent service, good ambiance. They offer gluten-free pasta, but it is a little bit high-priced. Wife had chicken Marsala and I had veal Picata. Was probably the best we've ever had. The portions were fair-sized but not extreme as they are in many places. We had a very pleasant evening and will be back.

    The Italian food at Café Alfredo is always great. But we ordered the special soft shell crab appetizer last week and it was amazing. The chef seems to have a wide range of culinary expertise, not just the usual pasta and veal. The lasagna was huge and out of this world. We just finished all our leftovers last night for dinner!

    The waiter brought our food and never stopped back to see if we needed anything. Our water glasses were never refilled. No one asked if we wanted a second glass of wine. We had to ask for after dinner coffee and were not offered a dessert menu. Our coffee cups were never refilled. The food, Chicken Francese and Pasta was delicious. The noise level was moderate. Unfortunately we were seated next to a very noisy four top table. An unfortunate dining experience!

    This restaurant was such a disappointment. It was definitely more focused on turnover than on quality. I had the fettucine alfredo, which wasn"t terrible in itself, but I added chicken for $5 extra and it was a BOILED and rubbery sad piece of flavourless chicken. My friend had the Chicken Francese, which they could not pronounce nor prepare properly and it was more reminiscent of a piece of chicken from Long John Silver's rather than a restaurant charging $20+. The waitress was fair at best, she really couldn't be bothered to show much attention to us. I had really high hopes for this place since they are often booked on opentable during peak hours, but I will not be returning.

    This was our second time at Cafe Alfredo. The first time we brought friends and everyone enjoyed their meals. This time the appetizer (calamari) was very good. We both ordered Veal Parmesan and have to say it was the worst veal we have ever had. We will not be rushing back to that place soon.

    Promptly seated upon arrival. After 10 minutes the waiter came out and we ordered drinks and appetizers. Water and bread came about 5 minutes later and drinks when the appetizers arrived. Over 20 minutes later another waiter came out to take our dinner order. We ordered wine to have with the main course, a beer, and more water for everyone. We never were served the wine or any water. We had nothing to drink with our meal. Finally, 20 minutes later our waiter came out we told him we immediately just wanted boxes and the check. He apologized that we had been forgotten. I had to ask him to remove the wine we never received from the check. It took another twenty minutes to get my credit card back. The food was good, service terrible.

    We chose this restaurant because we had not tried it before and had a guest visiting. Unfortunately, it was so overwhelmingly noisy that we were unable to conduct a conversation throughout the entire meal. To make it worse, they had live music set up right next to the entrance where it only added to the din. The food was acceptable but nothing special. We admit to not being huge fans of restaurants with open kitchens where the clatter of dishes and heat from the oven intrude on our dining experience, but the noise was the real deal-breaker for us. Sadly, we won't give Café Alfredo a second chance.

    The restaurant and service was great. The live music (a band named Kahlua and Cream) was not so great. It was too loud and they weren't that good. Why do you need live music? The restaurant is great without it.

    We had been to Cafe Alfredo once before & sat at a high table close to the bar. This time we sat in a corner with 5 other tables & the noise was so loud we couldn't hear each other. The food was delicious & the service was so-so. Out waiter spent a lot of time chatting in a loud voice with the diners while we waited for our orders. Will definitely try dining here again but will pick another table.

    The table service was very good, timely and attentive. When we first came in with a reservation, we requested an outside table, they accommodated immediately. Unfortunately it started to rain so we had to move inside. They had given away our inside table to a walk in...but they were able to get us seated within a few minutes. Would definitely go back when we are in Florida.

    We had gotten take out from this restaurant once before and the food was fabulous. So, when a friend of mine came into town for a quick dinner with us, I fortunately was able to make a reservation. My wife had the Osso Bucco, I had Veal Saltimboca (though my favorite dish there is their homemade Pappardelle with mushrooms), and my friend had linguine with white clam sauce. Both the ladies had the Limoncelo cake for desert. Everything was wonderful. The place was crowded and loud - you have to expect that in Naples during season, so I do not blame the restaurant for that, even though it did sort of affect the service, but only related to getting drink refills. We will definitely be back. For Italian, it is way better than the chains.

    My chicken carbonara was the best in town, they even added peas at my request. Ditto for Dave's clam dish. Waiter Steve was terrific and efficient especially when we mentioned we had TheatreZone tickets for 8 pm. The only thing that would've made it better, is a quieter atmosphere. It was quite noisy.
