    8:15 reservation. Arrived at 8:30. Seated quickly. Our meal arrived at 10 pm. Server was definitely not on her game. Had to call on other servers to find her. Cole, the restaurant owner ended up taking our orders. Very chaotic experience. My dish was good, but the men who ordered short rib ravioli could not find the meant in their pasta. Left being amazed that the place is so popular.

    Very wonderful place. I got the ravioli duo, and it was excellent. I highly recommend the lobster as well as the Angus, both great choices.

    Easily a top restaurant in Cincinnati. Would rank it in my top three and this was my first time going there. It was hard to choose what to eat because everything on the menu looked phenomenal. We enjoyed every bite of what we ordered. Plus, our waiter Matt was excellent. Attentive, made recommendations and answered our questions. Can’t say enough good things about our experience and I wish we could eat here every week!

    Food was absolutely delicious. Everyone working will not pass you by without first looking to see if you need anything. If you do, that same person will get the item you wanted and bring it back. You will never see the “it’s not my job” attitude displayed here.

    We had a wonderful evening. Sarah was a fabulous server- so sweet and had great recommendations and was excited to tell us about the restaurant since we had never been. Two of us tried the ravioli duo one the short rib gnocchi, we all loved our dishes. I had the short rib and five cheese ravioli. I loved the short rib- the cream sauce was so good- didn't taste or see a lot of short rib, but loved the dish. The 5 cheese was a very basic ravioli and I wish I would have tried something else. The desserts were all awesome- gelato, bread pudding and peanut butter chocolate cake. I tasted them all and would recommend them all again. Next time when I bring my husband, I can't wait to try a few more dishes. Great night out and highly recommend !

    Food was very delicious, as always, but the first three drinks we ordered they were out of and my meal came out without scallops. After inquiring, the waitress told me they ran out and they had to substitute. I wish we had been told before hand, but nevertheless the food was still very good.

    We are visiting Cincinnati from NC for an NFL game and decided to come early and spend New Years Eve. We are not typically fans of prix fixe meals but based on reviews decided to try Alfio’s and it proved us wrong! The menu was excellent with 4 choices for every course and the smaller portion sizes on first two courses were perfect. The gnocchi appetizer was amazing and the halibut entree was the best I have had. Really everything we ate was just so good! The wine list was extensive and the staff was knowledgeable on it. The restaurant was cozy and perfect for a winter evening . Our evening was made even better by our waiter Marco. Marco provided great recommendations on what to try and we enjoyed chatting with him in between courses. We were so full that Marco offered to wrap up our desserts to take back to our hotel . Just a perfect evening and if in town again we would certainly go back!
