    My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. This was our second time eating here and both times were amazing. You can TASTE the love and precision in every dish. This is one of our favorite restaurants. Our waiter even got us both a free glass of champagne to celebrate. I highly recommend.

    Matt, the manager, and all of the staff at Alfio's are amazing and very accommodating. The food was amazing as well. We had the empanadas, the Caesar salad, the veal short rib, and the braised short rib. The emapanadas were an amazing start to the meal and the night. The Korean BBQ and the Chicken Carnitas Elote emapanadas were definitely the stars of the show. The Spinach and Cheese and the Spiced Beef emapanadas were also great. They just couldn't compare to the other two. The Caesar salad was pretty standard, but the homemade croutons were buttery, delicious, and really made the dish stand out. The veal short rib comes with an amazing, slightly sweet marsala sauce that was different than anything I've had at an Italian restaurant. It was a breath of fresh air away from the average dish and truly showed me how creative Chef Alfio really is. With that being said, the Braised Short Rib was the best dish of the night. It's a creamy sauce over beautifully homemade gnocchi, topped with a large bone-in short rib. The meat was so tender that it fell right off the bone and had deep, earthy flavors that paired perfectly with the light cream sauce. Overall, this meal at Alfio's was one of the best I've had anywhere in a very long time, and I'm grateful for the staff for making it a wonderful night.

    Absolutely phenomenal food. Went here for date night and did the tasting menu 6 course meal. Every dish that came out was presented beautifully and the food itself was out of this world. There was not a single thing I would change! Also loved talking with the somalier! He helped us pick a really good bottle of wine and was so knowledgeable and friendly. Our server was also the sweetest and attentive! Was so excited to actually meet Alfio at the end! I cannot give this chef enough praise for the wonderful experience me and my boyfriend had for date night. We will absolutely be back soon for more!

    The service was excellent as was the meal. The noise level was such that we could talk to each other in a normal tone. A very pleasant experience.
