Mediterranean
Renown Italian restaurateur Mario Iaccarino is pleased to invite guests for a taste of the Sorrento Coast at Casa Don Alfonso. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, the menu tells the story of traditions passed down for generations in the family homes of southern Italy. These recipes come from a magical place, ripe with the culture and beauty of the Mediterranean. Alongside an unmistakable commitment to hospitality and service, Casa Don Alfonso brings hand-crafted flavors and carefully chosen ingredients with every bite.

Family of Iaccarino honors the culinary heritage of the Campania region, with seasonal ingredients that closely resemble the sun-kissed produce harvested at the Iaccarino family’s farm. Fresh, handmade pastas create an edible narrative of the Iaccarino legacy, while whimsical desserts transport guests to Naples’ nostalgic bakeries.

From Sorrento to St. Louis, we look forward to welcoming you soon.

    I had been there for dinner before but this was my first time for breakfast buffet. I was impressed by the selection of the food available on the buffet as well as made to order eggs from the chef’s station. Everything was fresh and hot and very tasty. The service was impeccable, just like last time. It was a lovely breakfast experience.

    We have been to the restaurant in Sorrento a couple of times and it is a life experience. The family always makes you feel at home. Came to St. Louis on a weekend trip and had to see how the family did opening up in the States. It was fantastic! Great service and food and, of course, the home made limoncello.

    My wife and I went for my birthday dinner, noted on OpenTable reservation. When we arrived there was a signed birthday greeting from the staff. We shared each of the four courses. Started with smoked yellowtail, which may have been our favorite. Followed by tagliatelle, then chicken supreme. We decided to add a lettuce salad, which arrived very quickly, in time to enjoy with our chicken. Each course was excellent, and the portions were large enough for both of us to enjoy.. Our server was Sebastian. He did a great job, stopping by just often enough. We enjoyed learning about his training as a sushi chef! He came by to take our picture, and when our dessert course of espresso tiramisu aarived, our picture was printed onto the top, along with a birthday candle, what a nice touch!

    If I could have given 10 stars I would have. Juan Pablo was awesome. He made the experience wonderful. All of the staff was so attentive and the food was amazing. My brother and his wife were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and stated this was one of the best meals they have ever had. From the lobster salad to the Ziti to the lasagna to the gnocchi to the Apple Pizza for desert it was wonderful. Don’t miss this gem of a place.❤️

    The service was dismal. I had to keep flagging someone down to get our ordered wine with the mains or everything tbh. The food was pretty bland. Meatballs were wet and barely held together. The halibut in a plastic bag was forgettable. Just acidic vegetables and halibut in a sous vide bag. The manhattan cocktail was very good and the selection of wines by the glass was good as well. For the price point, this is not worth your time. Two people: $250 with tip. There is much, much better food in St Louis for a lot less. For this price, I expect competent service but didn’t get that.

    Amazing! What a special place for an anniversary dinner. From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were greeted with open arms. It was like walking into a friend’s house. Our wait staff was incredibly helpful, the manager Maranda was very sweet, but the ambiance and food are what set this place apart. The menu isn’t extensive but it’s just about perfect. Everyone will find something to try, and I hope it’s the lasagna or the gnocchi. Best lasagna I’ve ever had & while I’m not a big gnocchi fan, this dish would change my mind. We also had the eggplant parmigiana appetizer and it has made me a fan! The cocktails are well worth the splurge. I feel confident that you won’t be disappointed when you visit Casa Don Alfonso.

    Our server, Heather was friendly, but overall offered poor service in our dining experience. It would benefit her to increase her awareness and responsiveness to guests and to learn to pay attention to the details at her guests tables. We have dined here on several other occasions and this time it was quite disappointing. Both our main courses were beautiful in presentation and lacked flavor, which added to the overall poor experience at Casa Don Alfonso.

    I was excited to try this restaurant for brunch, having heard a lot of publicity around it. Unfortunately, I was not impressed. The staff was slow, the food was OK but not special as I had expected. It could have been my expectations were too high given the Ritz connection, but I was let down.
