We arrived early for the festival and wanted a light meal with a beverage. We were welcomed promptly and had a great view of the street and trail. We all ordered gumbo and an app. Hot,delicious and paced. A great start to a bluesy evening. The food was above par,the server charming and attentive,the venue relaxing. Indeed a beautiful evening...

We go to Alfresco's all the time, especially for Sunday Brunch. Casual atmosphere, good service, great food. If they have it, try the Corned Beef Hash for brunch.

This place has really gone downhill! We are locals and used to really enjoy the food here. Haven't been in over a year and boy, what a surprise! The menu has seriously changed and they really don't have good choices. I think they must be under new management or something. Our "crab cocktail" appetizer was disgusting. It was crab salad...

Was spending some time in Dunedin and had two wonderful meals. The eggplant Parmesan was outstanding and my family members enjoyed their meals immensely. A special shoutout to Ryen was who helpful with our choices. Very reasonably priced.

We visited during the Wine the Blues festival and never thought we would get a seat, but we got lucky. Atmosphere is nice, and we had a window seat which was even better. The menu has a little bit of everything. Appetizers, soup, salad, pasta dishes, entrees and sandwiches. There are also daily specials, which looked good. Prices are fairly... More

Visited for Sunday brunch. My husband ordered a Spice Bloody Mary and it was one of the best he's had. Eggs Benedict was good, but standard. Poached Eggs Florentine was divine and unique....Will remember that entree and order again. Seating was a little cozy for my liking.
