But be prepared to take home food. The portions are huge, fortunately they do offer lighter portions on some items. Our group had the lasagna and the chicken piccata... Yummy, and we all had leftovers for the next day's lunch (even with the lighter portion of chicken piccata). The enclosed 'porch' was pleasant, an indoor/outdoor feel to it since it's glassed in, right on the Pinellas Trail. They also offer al fresco dining on a covered porch. Definitely going to be back, maybe try brunch too. And you can walk it all off with a stroll down Dunedin's quaint Main Street.

Just got back from a lovely family dinner, following the Annual Christmas parade this evening. We were a party of 9, 5 adults and 4 children and let me tell you everything was delicious! Not one empty plate, or take out container. And the service was spot on as well. Thank you Cafe alfresco for a lovely dinner.

We stopped in for something light so we ordered salads. The salmon salad was delicious. The ahi tuna salad was fresh. Service was ok, atmosphere is a nice casual. We look forward to going back to try some of their entrees.

I recently ate at this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. There are 2 options for dining - inside and out. If the weather is nice, eat outside. The service was excellent. We asked if there was a lot of mayonnaise in the Maryland crab salad and the lobster salad and the waitress brought out samples of each. We choose the lobster salad and it was fantastic. We paid for the plate to be divided since the portions are very large. It did costs us an additional amount but it was well worth it. Thumbs up!!
