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.

Coming from NY we find it difficult to find good Italian food in FL. This was not only good, but better! It is probably the first Italian restaurant I have eaten in (in quite some time)'that served appropriate--not too large-- portions. Dinner is proceeded by wonderful bread and a delicious salad (with just the right amount of dressing). It was... More

What makes Alfano's so special is the people. Owners Frank and Linda Alfano have their name above the door. Their daughter and son in law are working there. Shoot, the bartender Keith has been there for well more than a decade. This is a family affair - a family that is passionate about great food, service, selection and atmosphere. There... More

Wonderful night out! Wife and I enjoyed another evening of well prepared, nicely presented, and very tasty food. This place has figured out what it takes to be great and they do it consistently.

I wish I had known about Alfano's sooner. Quality Italian food. Excellent atmosphere. And service that can only be described as top notch. Also, excellent mix of seafood on the menu. A wonderful restaurant for a memorable night.
