This is a great Italian restaurant. Traveling with husband are found this restaurant on yelp. It is a small restaurant with great food. There were 6 specials listed for the night. We had the scallops and a vegetable pasta. Both were very nicely prepared. The menu includes many of the traditional options.

We were in the area for a wine tour. As usual, I researched restaurants to dine at prior to leaving home. Alessandro's was rated very high on TA, and since Italian cuisine is one of our favorites, we decided to give it a try. We arrived at 4:00 PM and were the first patrons, so we had our choice of...

On a weekend trip from Canada to Cleveland, my wife and I stopped for the night in Ashtabula, Ohio. Our host recommended a list of a few area restaurants in which Alessandro's was included. Our dining experience was sublime. This little unpretentious Italian ( Sicilan ) restaurant let the food do the talking! Everything that the chef/owner,Alessandro, prepared for us... More

Love the seafood dishes, and of course the Italian pasta dishes. Nice menu and your food is individually prepared fresh by the owner/chef. Sometimes they will have some more unusual specials. We drive there from Erie, Pa.-about 45minutes away.

This is our absolute favorite restaurant in this area. This is not your average family Italian restaurant but instead gourmet Italian dishes cooked by the owner. All dishes are amazing especially the fish specials! Great wine list and don't forget the dessert. Husband won't share dessert with me anymore. It is too good he wants his own. I can't say... More

The Italian food is good. I had the penna with sausage and chicken. The sauce seem to be a fresh pan tomato sauce. Will say it was a tad bitter, but very tolerable. It was good when I go back I would like to try another dish to compare. If the owner reads this I am sure he will correct... More

We were staying in this area overnight as we finished a trip to Niagara Falls and Canada, on way to Cleveland airport. I looked for a good local restaurant and decided on this one from the reviews. We were not disappointeed. We arrived at 5:15 pm and were able to be seated, as only about 10 people were there. As... More

We stayed overnight in Ashtabula and asked the hotel clerk about restaurants in the area. She recommended Alessandro's and gave us directions. We arrived about 4:45 and it was already starting to fill up. The food was nothing short of excellent! Service was very good also. And the price was very reasonable, low teens for entrees before add-ons. Definitely recommend!

The place seats about 35 people and doesn't look like much. The food however is amazing! I had the lamb which literally fell off the bone and was extremely tasty. The salad was covered with a thick layer of cheese. My wife had the veal Marsala. It was excellent as well. Dessert was a chocolate covered peanut butter ice cream.... More

Truly excellent gourmet Italian food. Not a lot if seating so come early. I think the owner likes it that way so he can cook for each and every one that comes it. The best Italian food in North East Ohio by far.
