    The staff are so wonderful so we didn’t complain about how cold the food was and how awful the rum buba was.

    Went for the valentine's Day dinner, food was decent but overpriced for $75 pp. Service started off good but as the night progressed it just got worse and worse. We ordered 1 soft drink and got charged for a $15 glass of wine, not to mention having to wait on average 30 minutes between courses with little staff assistance even with hardly any customers. Waited 30 minutes after the main course and only asked for a waiter when we saw a waiter approach the table in front immediately after they finished their main course for their desert. In total we were there for nearly 3 hours just waiting for our food to come and saw many guests come and leave before us. Horrible service for the money.

    The food at Alessandro’s is amazing! The menu is not your standard Italian/pub meal but something rather special. Highly recommend!
