We have lived in town our whole lives but never visited this restaurant because we do not care for Italian food. Finally, friends talked us into meeting here. So glad we did. Alessandro's is much more than Italian. There were four seafood entrees and steak on his specials board. I had the grilled swordfish and hubby had the Delmonico steak.... More

I really like Alessandro's for the homey, family vibe and the really delicious food. I had the best osso bucco ever. The mussels are also very, very tasty. I have eated there a half dozen times, and I always leave happy and satisfied with my meal. Great place to take friends for a special meal.

Little Italian restaurant by the lake. The food was good but a little pricey for the quantity. My husband got the lasagna and it had pieced of sausage on top and he said it was good. My daughter and I got penne pasta with sausage and chicken it was very tasty.

Our favorite restaurant. Food is outrageously good. Small but comfortable atmosphere. Casual and Alessandro and staff are like family. Summer weekends go early or late or you will wait quite a while.

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
