4.5 star Italian restaurant
Now in down down Jersey City
Alex's restaurant is a place offering tasty food and fun in a casual, family-friendly environment. we love what are do and we are excited to share that love with you.
It was not terrible but not good. The lemon chicken had no flavor. The chicken Marsala was not tasty and you could taste flour. Broccoli was over cooked. Totally over priced.
Had an amazing dinner w my team. Alex and his staff are awesome. Don’t hesitate to come here. A real winner!!!!! The chicken cordon bleu was amazing.
This is a nice family owned place. The owner's we're our servers and absolutely wonderful. They were even willing to accommodate our picky children. Food was amazing.
Food was excellent. A little pricey. Old school classic Italian joint
The owner is very involved and a very nice guy.
Alex's was absolutely delicious! We had the restaurant to ourselves, and I'm shocked it wasn't more crowded. It seems like they do a great deal of take out business. The owner's wife was our server and was extremely attentive. We all had different specials, and the pasta was incredible. The Ceasar salad was also delicious and not overly creamy, which I really appreciated. The tiramisu to end the meal was great as well. They gave us a gift certificate to come back, and we're already planning our next visit. Cannot recommend highly enough!
Overpriced for the experience. Alex needs to work on the decor and make the food a bit more special to charge more than New York prices. And if you're going to charge for water bottles ask people first. Offering of the free drinks was nice but if you're not going to drink them it's not worth the price. Also I don't think for disabled people it's a good idea to have a table in the bathroom.
We chosed this place based on it's convenient location. Me and my family wanted to get early dinner. However it was a total dissappointment. First off this place has terrible interior and dirty floors. It is basicially take out pizza shop but menu prices are competing with high end restaurants. The main entrees are least $23 -$40 and a side dish is nearing $10$ easy. When you ask for tap water, they bring you bottled water. We were 5 people and each ordered 1 item from the dinner menu and our total bill was 175$ !!! I am so sure that they overcharged us since i know that nobody ordered something more than 26$ but by the time i realized the situation, my father in law alredy paid the bill. I feel so upset and stupid every time i think about this. Before we left they gave us two 40$ dinner certificates which i already tossed in the trash! This place is a fraud and deserves less than a star.
The food was great and the owner Alex was delightful. He addressed each of the tables that evening and treated everyone to an after dinner drink. We will be returning another evening.
Surprisingly good for what it looks like. Other reviewers were right, only 2 or 3 other tables on a Monday evening and it took forever to take order and bring check. They don't offer complimentary water you have to pay for a bottle.
Food was good, but overpriced. Lots of nearby places for the same price serve fresh pasta and better all-around dishes.
Little Italy ambience and food in JC ! Liquor store right next door which was great as it was a BYOB .
Great service . Delicious food
We went to Alex's for a casual dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The service was very good and the food was delicious. Very fresh chicken noodle soup, and a wonderful scallop pesto dish. The stuffed mushroom appetizer with four cheeses was excellent. BYOB- there is a liquor store conveniently located next door.
Servers were very friendly and nice, but everything was slow. Food is ok. You have to wait a long time to get your drinks, food, check...even if the place is not crowded.
What a pleasure it was to dine at Alex's Italian Restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised to be greeted and served by Alex himself! He is such a kind and generous man. All Alex cares about is making his customers happy and satisfied. Everything was delicious and fresh. The broccoli rabe was so flavorful- the best that I have ever tasted. My fiancée ordered a 3 meat special which he devoured with gusto. I had the vegetarian pasta the was chockfull of broccoli which I love. We can't wait to go back with the kids. Thank you for a wonderful meal Alex! See you soon. Janet & Bill.
