Cafe Alfredo Ratings and Reviews
Food as always was phenomenal. The service however was sub par. Was served water and bread upon arrival, but waited over 10 minutes for our server to arrive and take drink orders. Then it took another 20 mjnutes for him to take our meal order....and for a second round of beer and wine I had to step up to the bar and get another bottle of wine and another beer for our table (which I paid for at the bar). The calamari tasted good but was cold, probably because it sat in the window forever. He oso buco was great as always. Then it took forever to get our deserts ordered. To top it off he tried to charge me a second time for the bottle of wine I paid for at the bar (because he neglected to check on us forever) and I had to have him remove it from the check. Food great! Service could be better.
We went to Cafe Alfredo with another couple for restaurant week. We ordered off the $35 dinner menu. My friend and I had the portobella mushroom stuffed with gorgonzola. It came out swimming in an unattractive brown gravy which was totally unnecessary and unattractive. The stuffing was a melted blob of gorgonzola. My husband and his friend had the fried calamari served with marinara sauce which they said was good. I ordered the breaded red snapper served over pasta. The portion of fish was very large and prepared properly. The pasta however was swimming in a wine sauce which was overkill and too rich. My husband had the ravioli with pesto and he said it was very good but a bit on the rich side as well. He had the tiramisu for dessert which was good. My friend and I chose the small pot de creme dessert. When the waiter brought out the platter of assorted little cups, we asked him what each was, and he said, "I have no idea." So we guessed and picked 2 each. They were fine, but it would be better to know what we're eating. With so many fine restaurants in the area, I don't feel like I would go back there.
Very disappointed this time! Alfredo sauce was runny . Noodles on my husband ‘s noodles was not drained very good. When my sister asked about the charge for side of noodles he gave a price of 5 but was 10. Did not fix the bill! My husband said we will not be back to this place!
The place appeared to be a bit bleak, the waiter was not very refined , reluctant to offer any help or recommendations of food and drink choices, abrupt, and more on the "I am bored with you" side.
The menu was limited, stereotypical Italian offerings. The food was tasty, but the servings were small, and I felt them a bit over processed.
The desserts were supermarket quality.
The wine was OK, but expensive in this the context, just as the food was overpriced.
This was our 2nd time dining here and overall was disappointed. Just felt like everything was just average. Maybe post hurricane struggles? My food at first was lukewarm so had to send it back. They were very apologetic but still not as impressed as first visit.
We had a fabulous time. Our waiter saw to our every need and really, I think that is an impossible task -7 friends celebrating life, always talking about food and the next eating event. This one stayed on our list, we were there only about 6 weeks earlier. Half of us drove from Ft. Myers - through flood waters, hungry for the fish special and happy hour.
A poor experience. The food itself wasn't bad, but the portions were tiny. The restaurant was hot and overall uninviting. A group of older people showed up and refused to be seated next to us, presumably because we had four kids. We were the only people under 70 years old in the place. Not only were the portions abysmal, but we bought an adult entree for two kids to share and they charged us a $6 sharing fee. $24 for a tiny plate of fettuccine alfredo with chicken is bad enough, but $30 with the plate sharing fee is robbery. If you like overpaying for tiny portions in a hot restaurant, Cafe Alfredo might be your kind of place. Plus they tacked on 20% automatically for gratuity, which I would have left anyway even for the poor experience, but it is really crummy that they didn't give me a choice. There are too many places to eat in Naples for us to waste our time here.
Another great dinner at our go-to Italian restaurant in Shoppes at Vanderbilt. We enjoyed a wonderful cold Caesar salad, lightly fried calamari and veal marsala. Service was speedy and nice. The evening was very pleasant. I also love the inside-outside bar - so like an Italian restaurant.
My wife, mother and I enjoyed a very good meal at Café Alfredo, taking advantage of the Restaurant Week specials available. Our meals were delicious and the service was excellent. We asked to sit in the back of the restaurant where it is usually quieter but a couple of noisy folks at the nearby bar torpedoed that plan. Aside from the raucous noise from the bar it was a delicious and fun evening.
The fried calamari was nothing special. For entrees, we ordered the snapper Francese which was bland. The lobster ravioli was advertised as cooked in a pink sauce, but was rather smothered in marinara and they were kind enough to leave pieces of lobster shell in the dish. For dessert we ordered creme brûlée and the cannoli. The creme brûlée was clearly frozen, then microwaved and caramelized, and served as cold soup. I did not eat. The cannoli was the restaurant's only positive. For $100+ meal, there are many better restaurants in Naples.
