    Nicole is an excellent server! We really enjoyed our dinner last night. The empanadas are out of this world good! My friend loved her beet/watermelon salad. I do think the prices are a little high for drinks, but I definitely want to return.

    We have dined here before and have never been disappointed. Service is always excellent, just the right amount of attention. We have our favorite items, like the skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, the ravioli duo and the empanada quatro, but we tried some new things and were glad we did. Its all excellent. Want a nice night out for a romantic dinner or special occasion? Alfio's is it.

    Saturday evening 5:00pm reservation and the place was already quite full. Upon arrival, we were met and greeted promptly and in a very friendly manner. Lenoir, our server was fabulous and knew the menu (ingredients/preparation) like a pro! The Empanadas Cuartro for starters were delicious and served promptly. Our entrees were the Smoked Bolognese Rigatoni and the Pistachio Salmon. Both were prepared perfectly, arrived hot and promptly after our appetizers. Lenoir checked in with us numerous times and was sincerely interested in making our dining experience special. We were also visited (food/drink delivery and to clear the table) by a few other staff members who were all very friendly. Dessert consisted of the Cheesecake Gelato and a decaf Espresso. The restrooms were clean and well kept.

    Our experience was "weird". Our server was obviously new and did not explain the menu and special dishes as we heard from servers at other tables. We ordered duck and it was prepared satisfactorily. We were told that they only served decaf coffee after 7:30pm (?).

    We have been trying to dine in person for years, a series of unfortunate events has prevented this. It was worth the wait! Our server Justin was great; on point food descriptions, walking us through the menu, keeping everything timely, overall a pro. Kyle was our greet and he had fantastic energy. Cole was extremely knowledgeable about the wine list, and I'm sure much more. Mgmt. was visible and touched our table too. Seriously, the food was perfect. We'll be back, cheers!
