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.

    As usual, a wonderful experience. Service was good and personable, food was delightful! We had 2 of the 3 soups (bean/barley and tomato/basil), both were rich, delicious, full of flavor and so satisfying. My wife had a beef carpaccio that was perfectly dressed, I had the rigatoni a la Norma that was so rich and delicious that it may become my favorite pasta at the Casa. We washed down the meal with a perfectly fine Montepulciano that was nicely priced at $50 (thank you for having multiple choices under $75)!!!!

    Best part of the night was speaking with the cooks at the bar window. We were able to meet the head chef which was very cool. The food was good but the service kept it from tasting great. Our waiter was not what we would expect from a $200 bill.

    The restaurant was not busy when we arrived (more on this later). We were seated and greeted promptly. Our server did a great job. I ordered the Salsiccia and Broccoli pizza ($27). There could not have been 1 oz. of Salsiccia on the pizza; VERY DISAPPOINTING. My husband has the lasagna, which was good. We made our reservation through Open Table. At the time I booked, Open Table showed no reservations available past 5:30 pm, so we took that time slot. We finished our meal at 6:45 pm; the restaurant was mostly empty. Either dozens of people canceled their reservations or Open Table/Casa Don Alfonso does not take reservations for the prime dinner times. Seems odd. If you want to try this restaurant, just show up, I guess.

    Overall a good experience. The food was good but not great. I feel a restaurant like this needs to have great food but the food was not memorable. The pizza was good but it could have been better and I have had better at other locations. I think they need to step up their game to be a Greek restaurant.

    We have been to the breakfast here before and loved it, decided to return to celebrate my mother/father in laws 40th wedding anniversary and it was WELL worth our choice. Not only was our waitress very accommodating/flexible to our three year old, but she went above and beyond to talk with us on what we were celebrating- which in fact included the 40th wedding anniversary and upcoming pregnancy of my husband & I. She brought us customized desserts to help us celebrate and made our experience and breakfast to start our day top notch (and delicious!). Needless to say, we'll be back but felt so comfortable/welcomed and the food and treats were a very unexpected surprise.

    Wow! The staff absolutely blew us away- I believe our server’s name was Elaine, and she was stellar! We came on a busy Friday evening and the staff made us feel as if we were the only ones at the restaurant. They even brought us a tiramisu after we dined with my friends pictures on it. We will definitely return!

    Overall ok experience. The interior is magnificent and service was excellent. Server very knowledgeable. I ordered swordfish. It was ok, perhaps bit too salty and somewhat dry. Husband had meatballs which were good. Green salad good although dried fruit in salad was so dry as to be inedible. Great Bread service with fabulous olive oil.

    Know going in that this is not an inexpensive meal--if for no other reason than it is at The Ritz. Of, course, over half our bill was from the bottle of wine we selected 🍷 Theeal was divine, my husband had the lamb which was perfection and I had the lasagna. While it is not a huge piece like we are used to in the states, I only ate half and brought the rest home for lunch. The coffee tiramisu was divine. All the food was so light and left us full without that uncomfortable heavy feeling.

    The space is absolutely beautiful. Staff was attentive, noise level made it difficult to understand some due to diversity of staff’s background/culture. Good was great, portions are not oversized which makes the price points a little high. Swordfish was overcooked, but preparation was tasty.
