Alfio's buon cibo Ratings and Reviews
This was a very good resteraunt for great food, the steak and empenadas were delicious and perfectly balanced. The salads were also very novel, creative and well made. Finally the dessert was excellent, get crepes or limoncello tiramisu!
The service was also impeccable and very knowledgeable, but the noise level was very high near the end of our night. We will certainly be back for more of Alfio’s deliciously original cuisine.
Food was very good and the service was fine other than the fact that all of our salads were dropped and had to be prepared a second time. The management graciously gave us a few desserts for our trouble. They were excellent.
Staff is good and personable.
The only real issue is this establishment is very noisy. Hard to carry on a normal conversation. We have been here two times now and both times the noise level was high. Love the food, but noise level is a bit much.
It had been more than a year since our last visit to Alfio's and the food was as delicious as we remembered. The short rib ravioli is a favorite of ours as well as the goat cheese and beet salad. The only issue is the noise level in the restaurant. On a busy evening it can be difficult to hear the conversation at your table.
We went on a Tuesday for the 1/2 price ravioli special. What a deal! We had the empanadas to start followed by 2 different types of ravioli. Both were fresh, unique and delicious. Service was friendly and knowledgeable about the wine and food. We will certainly return to try the rest of the menu.
My husband and I discovered Alfio’s about two years ago and fell in love with it. Since then we have come back for special occasions multiple times and it never disappoints. Every single course, from the delicious bread with the prepared butter to the incredible fried goat cheese and beet salad to my main course of wild mushroom ravioli to the amazing tiramisu dessert was superb! And Leandra, our delightful server, was an absolute joy! Bravo, Alfio, you have done it again!
Alfio's was fantastic! The food and service were both top-notch. We had the seared scallops as a starter and then lamb chops and ravioli duo for entrees. All were fantastic. Sarah, our server, was great and had great recommendations. It was a great place to celebrate an anniversary. A definite return visit and recommend to anyone.
Exceptional food and service. I had an out of town guest, who only drank a certain rum. I called the restaurant and spoke to the bartender Michelle. The bar did not carry this brand, so Michelle purchased it. Wow... now that is exceptional customer service and why we repeatedly bring guests here. Love this place for the consistency in great food and a staff who takes great pride in their work.
Another fabulous meal at Alfio's! We were entertaining a friend from Los Angeles who is well travelled and well fed. She raved about the empanadas, which is quite a complement as many of her friends make them. We recommended the award-winning ravioli and Alfio's impressed her again.
My husband, 10 year old son and I went for dinner. We love the short rib ravioli and empanadas. We have been twice and can't wait to go again. The first time our server was Chris who was excellent and present without being intrusive. The second time we had Sarah who was also wonderful, informed and very personable. We will be going back soon.
Shortly after leaving the restaurant I become very ill and regurgitated my entire meal. I spent a restless night and was unwilling to try eating any food for the next 24 hours. If it was the food that caused this reaction it was the cioppino. My entree and our appetizer were both items that our guests also had.
I brought a small cake in had a charge of 10 dollars on my bill without being told. I asked and I was told due to bringing in my small cake. My bill was 300 plus therefore I think this charge is ridiculous! They did give me back the 10 since I was not told of charge.
Excellent food, service was good but very very loud.
Food was great, service was very slow. Took a long time to get our food even the bread. Told it was bc of some type of kitchen issue. This was the third time dining here and had good experiences the first 2. That being said I'd still go back for another try.
Alfio never dissapoints! Choose any app, salad or entree and your taste buds will relish every bite. And you'll be back to treat yourself to the rest.
Our server, Sarah, was fun and knowledgeable.
The restaurant is loud so don't expect a quiet dinner for two.
We had a wonderful meal with great service. This was our first time to this restaurant and our server done a great explaining the menu. She was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. The menu is a combination of Italian and Argentina cuisine.
The Italian deviled eggs are different and very good. I also found the 5 cheese braised beef ravioli to be exceptional. The only downside was the noise level. It wasn't that busy but very loud.
