I recently dined at Cafe Alfresco with my boyfriend. Our server was an awesome and friendly lady named Dee Dee Saunders. Personable, attentive, and a great sense of humor!! We are coming in to eat again, but only if Dee Dee is working!

Went in for dinner on a Saturday evening alone. I was seated quickly and my waiter, Cody, came over right away to take my drink order. He suggested a couple of wines and I ordered one of the suggested wines. When it came time for dinner I ordered the Italian Cobb Salad and the delicious asparagus soup, suggested by my... More

Loved this place first time, but menu needs updating. Nothing has changed over the years. Had mushroom ravioli which was ok, but not the transcendent dish it could be. My,salmon on linguine primavera was overcooked and the linguine was bland, the wring texture and missed the mark on every level. THE GELATO needs new flavors I would 're 're pizza... More

First night here, looked like a nice place to eat and people watch. The food was good, the service was good. Nothing spectacular.

We were excited to try this restaurant, hoping for a really great fire grilled pizza....We requested super light sauce...That did not happen. Upon looking at the pizza, I was already apprehensive. It was very thick crust, not your typical crust for fire roasted pizza. We noticed right away how thick the sauce was. Upon tasting it, I realized why it... More

We tried the chicken/broccoli alfredo and porcini stuffed ravioli - favorites for both of us and both, very bland! Gross and we didn't eat either of them. The waiter didn't even ask if there was an issue, just if we needed "boxes". I said no because we didn't care for them. He came back with the "most expensive" entree removed... More
