“A great old style Italian American place for a family dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

I'm giving this 4 stars compared to other, similar places in the area.Quincy is not the North End and never will be.

On to the review. My 90 year old grandmother lives in Quincy and we pretty much have to stay close to her retirement community. I've literally eaten here about 25 times over the last 3 years. It was fixed up a few years ago and is very clean. It's new interior isn't red and white checkered table cloth, but the food is. I'm in my late 40's and this reminds me of the best old style Italian places growing up.

The wait staff is very accommodating to my grandmother. The service has always been informal, accommodating and friendly.

I have honestly never had a bad or even fair meal there. I've enjoyed everything I've had from the chicken parmesan to the marinaria.

Keep in mind, this is wonderful 1970's (truthfully, 1950, and 60s too) style Italian American food that I fondly remember growing up. Our family of 5 had a wonderful family meal there a few weeks ago.

Yes, the clientel skews older. Yes, they don't have cutting edge food. But if you want a simple family meal with good food at good prices, who cares. And if you're too young to know my references to the old style Italian places, go and find out.

Took family from out of town to Alfredo's Restaurant. We were all very pleased with the quality of food and the excellent service. We had the Wednesday special which was a 3 course meal for $17.00.

“Never a bad meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2013

My girlfriend and I eat here at least once a month. Never had a bad meal. Chicken Saltimbocca, Chicken Piccata and Chicken of Quincy are the best. Fish is always fresh. Monday and Tuesdays - you get a gift card for 1/2 the valuie of your meal -I think up to $20. On Wed. & Thur they have a 3 course prix fixe menu to choose from for $17 - great value and great food. Servers are friendly.

“Wonderful meal and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013

Four of us dined at Alfredo's on New Years Eve and had delicious meals and wonderful service. Being New Years Eve we did not know what to expect but were greatly surprised at the menu, service and prices. We look forward to our return.
