Hi there! I have just dined at Alfredo and while we were impressed with the atmosphere and settings, we made the mistake of ordering the Carbonara. We agree that it was a very plain dish, but the pasta was undercooked, the sauce had nothing special to it and we could barely stomach the food. We spoke to the son first and he gave us such attitude. I am sure your experience in the industry means something, but walking out I hardly saw one pasta dish. So is this mainly a sea-food place since we were looking for decent pasta? And we couldn't help overhearing the shop talk in Afrikaans. Please keep it in the kitchen. I don't want to know how you disrespect ur staff/son/etc. And lastly, don't disrespect ur customer and overrule their opinion. I would come again and order something else, but due to the attitude, we won't be back.

dear mark, please do not frequent proper genuine italian restaurants as you know nothing about ITALIAN pasta and how it should be prepared. rather stick to the chain restaurants serving bastardised, overcooked, oversauced versions of pasta which can also double as wall paper paste. this looks like more up your alley.
do some research on the word " AL DENTE" and that is how you serve pasta.
our clientele is 90% european and they would stone me if i serve them pasta your way.
and by the way, we serve a small mountain of pasta mounthly eaten with much appreciation by knowlegeable people from all over the world.
i hope this information has helped.
regards, al dente alfredo

This is the most elegant restaurant in St Lucia and the only one with linen tablecloths that I found. The food is superior as well, and I particularly enjoyed the veal. On another occasion the impala stew was delicious. Alfredo himself is on hand to ensure diners enjoy their meal. Hopefully it will not be long before I shall be able to visit again.

This family owned restaurant in St Lucia is one of the best experiences in town. The owners are always on hand to discuss your requirements and, once you are a regular, to make sure you get discount or an after dinner drink on the house. Always great to visit there.

Love the place, but was totally let down by Alfredo's. Had a friend visiting from UK so went for meal on Saturday evening. We all wanted Pizza as they are usally great, and ordered a bottle of wine, which duly came and was beautiful. Then they came back and said they only had 1 pizza base left, could we order something else. If we had wanted something else, we would have ordered it in the first place. After complaining to the manager, who was totally indifferent, we walked out and went over the road, where we duly had our pizza's, the service was really friendly and the dining area was clean and bright. So, all in all, it will never again set foot in Alfredo's or indeed recommend it to anyone of our friends who travel there often. We are regular visitors to St. Lucia and this put a dampener on our holiday this time.
