Was a little disappointed in service because there was no recognition or greeting by bartender. She continued to chat with either friends or family.
The second bartender was more attentive until the end when first one was asked to be engaged by co worker.
HUGE thank you to hostess for including us in a taste and information of Smokey bourbon.
Second time to this restaurant and was blown away again. The food was amazing, Marco (our server) was one of the best I have had in a while, and the ambiance was perfect for a great dinner experience. This is our favorite restaurant in Cincy!
First off the service was AMAZING! Secondly the food was excellent, their ravoli eas the best ever. Their steak(ribeye) was great. We had five appa circulating the table annnd all of them were amazing. We go on monthly dinners to food places none of is have been to..so far we have gone to about 11 and this place is hands down the best!!!
Everything about Alfio's is wonderful and we dine here a lot but our service was so poor. The server herself was great when she came to our table but she would leave us for 15-20 minutes at a time and both our water and wine was empty. We finally had to walk to the bar to get a 2nd drink.
I love this place and recommend it whenever I can . I am a Chef and love both the food and the service . The staff was great , Jennifer really helped with making my husbands birthday special .
Great food, a little loud, but lively.
This restaurant was recommended by a local as we were visiting Cincinnati - the appetizers were good, the wine selection was large, the service was spot on, the braised short rib raviolis were outstanding, the grilled romaine salad was also outstanding!
Went back for the 4th/5th time for anniversary. Ordered our go-to dishes of mussels, seafood risotto, and shrimp/scallops with "homemade" spaghetti. The food tasted just OK - a big disappointment compared to previous visits. Mussels lacked a rich sauce and was dry. Sauce for shrimp/scallops was too spicy and overpowered rest of the ingredients. The noodles lacked toothsomeness and its texture felt over-kneaded and/or lacking in Semolina.
On the positive note, Risotto was tasty though and service was great.
I know the restaurant is constantly evolving its menu so we shouldn't expect everything to stay the same but it appears the execution of the new dishes was not quite up to their usual quality.
We experienced very slow service, and it was incredibly loud. It is not a romantic night out as presented. However, the food was good. It is quite the conundrum.
Amazing! Loved the atmosphere and service! The food was absolutely delicious! Will definitely be back!
Our waitress was bubbly and nice and knowledgeable about the food and wine. The food was good. Lots of different choices for different tastes. Wine was tasty.
I wish I had taken a picture of my ravioli. A bowl shaped for a bunch of absolutely delicious ravioli's covered with a wonderful sauce and large strips of fresh Parmesan cheese baked on top. Of course, Ellie, our server, helped make this a fantastic evening. Located right on the Hyde Park Square with plenty of parking in back. Can't wait to go back for the appetizers and additional items on the menu.
I always enjoy the atmosphere, wine , food and their service!
Wedding anniversary, although we didn’t say anything to the staff.
Food was delicious!! Our server Chad was wonderful and very helpful with explaining the dishes. Can't wait to go back!!
We arrived a few minutes early and grabbed a drink from the bar. The hostess was friendly and prompt to greet us, and was happy to accept our offer to get a drink form the bar while she checked to see if the table was ready. The bartenders were quick to serve us and friendly during what seemed to be a partially busy moment when we walked in. Once, seated our server (unfortunately i can't remember her name) noticed we already had drinks from the bar so she brought water to supplement the offer for an alcoholic beverage. She handled her section with care and having worked in the industry in the past it was nice to see how she handled each party with care and a slightly different approach. With the two of us she was prompt when needed but kept her distance when we were engaged in conversion. The food was fantastic, my girlfriend had the lamb and I had the rib eye. Both prepared to perfection. The empanadas were outstanding and to finish the night off we had the brown sugar goat cheese cheesecake which was just the right size for two. Over all it was a great night out and I can't thank Alfio's staff enough for our experience.
The food was delicious and our waitress was amazing! We had never been there before and she helped us figure out what we should eat and had a great conversation with us! We went for our anniversary and eating here made our night!
Alfio's is one of my favorite local restaurants. Whenever I have guests from out of town that I would like to give a unique and enjoyable dining experrience. Akfio's is where I take them. The food is so unique and delicious it is always an amazing experience!
Short rib ravioli is absolutely amazing! Empanadas were also very good!
Ravioli was excellent !
Marco provided an exceptional dining experience. The food was delicious, like always.
Empanadas were good.
Steak was tasty.
Wine was very good and a good deal.
Quiet place, nice ambiance.
We split the scallop appetizer and then the ravioli (two kinds). It was plenty of food -- I can't imagine eating all of that myself! The scallops were exquisite; I'll order that as a main dish next time. The ravioli was terrific as well. Overall a really great place.
Love the remodeled interior! Our server, Jen, was awesome as always and made the experience a great one. Dinner was terrific!
My husband and I went for a date night. The food was great. Emapanadas are a must try. Good wine selection and service. A bit noisy, but would definitely return.
Great pasta!. Did not try the Argentenian meat dishes, but they looked good as they passed by our table.
Unbelievable food and service!
Everything was great once we got service. It just took alittle bit to get to us. But after everything was great
Best chicken Marsala ever! Very good scallop appetizer! Service was great. Jen was attentive and not intrusive! Jen was knowledgeable on wine selections.
You have to get the empanadas. Ravioli was spot on. Great waiter. Overall we are going back.
We was first time at this restaurant.
Staff are very pleased.
Food is delusions.
Thanks Michelle for the complementarity desert.
We will back soon.
Outstanding! I always love dining at Alfio's - the ravioli is amazing - any of them and I love combining 2! I think we have had the breaded zucchini with goat cheese pesto every time we had dinner here.
Overall, it was the great I’ve come to expect.
This was my first time at the restaurant. I wanted to treat my adult children to a new fine dining experience. Our service was great and the food was delicious.
The food and service at Alfio’s are consistently excellent. We love the ravioli dishes and the pistachio crusted salmon was wonderful. My only complaint is the noise level. We asked for a quiet table and were shown to a padded booth which enabled us to sit close enough to have a conversation.
I mean, we definitely were expecting good food, but this place went above and beyond. Friendly service, comfortable ambiance, busy--but not noisy (we were able to have a conversation)--we were impressed by our appetizer of mussels, the on-the-house bread basket (warm and with delicious garlic chicken butter). We had shrimp and scallops as one entree, and crab ravioli as the other. Both were perfect. We topped it off with a spiked dessert coffee! It was all fairly priced, too. We will be back.
Service at this place is amazing. Our table was wobbling and the server fixed it immediately. The food is out of control amazing. If you don’t get the empanadas you are doing yourselves a disservice.
Marco our waiter was outstanding. Menu suggestions were spot on. My first visit and it won’t be my last.
Delicious food, server was attentive but not distracting. We felt comfortable sitting and chatting as long as we liked.
Our waitress Brandy made our dining experience very memorable - she was knowledgeable about the wine list and offered us samples and made great dinner recommendations. Our food came out course by course and was timed perfectly. The empanada appetizer was good but I expected more sauces to accompany the four different varieties - our favorite was the spinach and cheese! Can we get 4 of those next time?? We each had a salad - I had the poached pear and fig salad which was wonderful. The salad dressing was a honey vinaigrette that was especially interesting! My date had the grilled caesar and really enjoyed it as well. I had the pistachio crusted salmon meal and it was also wonderful - the salmon was flavorful and I loved that there were SO many pistachios! The butternut squash mash and green beans were ok... the green beans were pretty bland. My date enjoyed the surf and turf special of the night - steak and lobster tail accompanied by mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. The steak and mashed potatoes hit the spot! He didn't eat much of the asparagus - pretty tough and large stalks. Unfortunately, we didn't save room for dessert but we noticed a few at other tables that looked delicious! Alfio's was a very nice special occasion dining experience and we hope to go back again!!
