Attended a Christmas Luncheon. Entrance was blocked until I paid at front. Tip was included - before I knew how service was?? Fixed Menu was good, and no substitutions were permitted - by us. BUT - they substituted.. We could not get the bread before the entree (I think so we didn't eat too much, because we requested a refill... More

I am very sorry you had an unpleasant experience. The menu it sounds like you are referring to is our ‘Group Pre-Fixe Menu’. This menu does not have a fish option, nor do we serve chocolate cake. In my 30 years here I have never seen us run out of the Spumoni Pie dessert. The only reason we might have... More

Excellent for service and food. Had been there before with a large group... It, too, was wonderful. We were able to bring in our own cake for the birthday celebration as well as rearrange the tables to our satisfaction.

I went here for lunch with a group (9) just before Christmas. It was very quiet, not many other diners. I had the Italian Wedding soup - it was so-so, and I would not order it again. The garlic bread was tasty, but too drenched in butter for my taste. I ordered the canneloni, which I really liked. It was... More

Always well attended for good reason. Friendly staff, pleasant jazz (piano and tenor sax most nights), an inviting bar, and both open and private rooms. The food is pretty darn good too, although not extraordinary I hate to say.

I take my office out to lunch at Alfano's each year for the holidays. We all like the choices on the menu. Their garlic bread is great. I usually get the shrimp scampi on pasta. The meal is large and we usually take some leftovers home.

Had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant last night and the food was great. Had one of the best appetizers ever Sambuca shrimp. Wow so good. Had a Pork Marcella and loved it. Only very small knock was the wine list perhaps there were two wine list so if this is the case I'm sorry but the wine list... More

One of my favorite Italian dishes is pasta carbonara. It was't on the menu. I asked waiter if Chef would or could make it and they did! It was to die for! Then their Rockfeller was excellent but had a twist. The seafood. What a surprise! Scallops. Not sure of the shell they served it in unique a presentation. They... More

The lighting was so romantic. Everyone was wonderful. The Senor Lady who showed us to the table made us feel so comfortable. George was our waiter. He was great. He answered our questions, and did not know an answer, so he went and found out. That was wonderful He did not make up the answer, he cared enough to find... More

This family owned restaurant produces some very authentic food from an extensive menu. Starting with insalata and antipasti - including seafood options like crab and romaine salad and calamari friti, but also sacchetti, spinach pie, and eggplant rollatini as a few examples - Alfano's is fine Italian from start to finish. There are entrees catering to cover something for everyone... More

Great Italian dishes, awesome wine list, ambiance, and staff! Can't beat the service. Enjoy the attention to detail. Lots of seating options, by yourself, a couple or group, they have it.
