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.

    Don Alfonso was underwhelming for us on the two times we went. It is rated as one of the best restaurants by critics and media, but frankly, the food taste was mediocre and mostly bland (of 4 dishes, only the lasagna was above average), the ambiance was a bit cheap with an open floor plan, modest chairs & tables with an open diner feel, and the costs were amongst the most expensive. I suspect the 'demand' is because there is very limited seating keeping reservations booked weeks out. The place could really use an upgrade on food quality and atmosphere.

    Another wonderful dinner at Don Alfonso. This time served up by Ebony. Great food, service and wine. The burrata caprese has some of the silkiest burrata ever found. The bell pepper soup as recommended by Ebony was fresh and delicious, and they provided bowls and a ladle so we could split it. Seasonal white truffle pizza was on point, and the squid ink ravioli with scallop mousse on a bed of celery root puree with fresh ginger accompanied by a seared scallop was amazing. Attentive service, good recommendations by their sommelier, Martin, and the freshest cleanest flavors and high quality ingredients all combined for a great evening. Ebony even took a photo and had it printed on top of the tiramisu for my wife's dessert, so it had an image of my wife and daughter on it. The prices are reflective of the ingredients, cooking expertise, and service, good value even if higher than some others with lesser offerings.

    The restaurant is beautiful and the service is good. My cocktail was good, but not worth $20. I really wasn’t a fan of the food. It’s not bad, but not worth the high prices in my opinion. I had the pasta special which was $38 for four lack luster Tortellini… If I were to go back so would stick to drinks and a pizza or appetizer.

    We sat at the Kitchen Bar dining area and really enjoyed watching the chefs prep the dinners. Such a clean and well-run operation; it was fascinating to watch. But it didn’t really match eating the creations which were wonderful.

    The restaurant itself is beautiful and has wonderful ambiance. The wine selection was fabulous and the one I chose was delicious. I believe it was called Paradigm but not positive. The charcuterie board was the best I have ever had. They had an asparagus arancini appetizer special that was great. The best entree was the lasagna. It was so good. I had the tagliatelle and would not order again. It was fine but there are better choices. Wish that I had tried dessert but I was too full to even consider it. Service was excellent.

    Excellent food and superb staff at all levels at this trendy Italian place. A tad pricey, but worth it. We've been there twice and had a full meal first time and second time pizzas. .The pizzas were truly excellent! The pizzas are moderate in size. Hubby ate an entire one, but I had to bring 1/2 of mine home for later.

    Part of the issue was due to a misunderstanding on my part. I wanted lunch/dinner menu but came at the tail end of brunch @1. The food options were limited in my opinion as I would have wanted some additional options or choices as I have a few food allergies. Nevertheless, the ambiance and place was beautiful and aesthetic! The staff took a while to come by to get drinks but once they did, they often came by to pick up empty plates. I would give it another try for dinner.

    Great place to go for dressing casual and get high end table service. Nice touch that you can purchase fresh baked bread from their restaurant. Dessert (Tiramisu) was very high priced and it was only mediocre. Also, no complimentary drink or dessert for birthday, but rather got (3) post cards on the table (?)....not sure what the purpose was for these. It is worth checking out.

    Overall, a nice experience-what you would expect for a restaurant in the Ritz. The staff were all very nice and attentive. I made a reservation a week prior and the only available was at the chefs counter overlooking the kitchen -sounded really neat! I was disappointed because we couldn’t see much of the kitchen and it wasn’t as exciting as I had expected. The bar was somewhat narrow and it was awkward speaking over our shoulder yo the waitress. It appeared they kept the tables open for larger parties, but i would have preferred a table over the chefs bar. The caprese salad was delicious-good portion and very fresh. The zucchini gnocchi was interesting. We love gnocchi and the gnocchi itself was some of the best we’ve had, but the sauce left much to be desired. It was fresh, but somewhat bland and I certainly wouldn’t want this as a main dish (we split it). Fortunately we paired it with the shrimp which was great. The lasagna was very good-definitely recommend. The tiramisu was also delicious. The service was great and our waitress was very attentive. I knew it was going to be expensive, but overall I feel the value was not there. I can get food that is almost if not just as good at other Italian places for half the price. While a good experience, I cannot say that I would return.

    Our service was very slow, the restaurant appeared to be short of service staff. Our server was more focused on serving drinks in the cocktail lounge than our food. We were disappointed in that we had talked up the restaurant to our daughters based on our experience there about a year ago.
