We visited Alongis for the first time in March. It is a nice restaurant featuring Italian food. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the wait staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our meal. It is a lot like Olive Garden but it is not a chain restaurant. The price was a little high but not unreasonably so.

Classic family owned Italian in the same location for over 40 years. Families come from miles around to enjoy the favorites.

At this stage in our lives, dining at various fine restaurants in Southern Illinois and St. Louis is one of our favorite pastimes. Simply put there is no better than Alongi's in Du Quoin. It's a great value, the building is perfect, and the food and service is as fine as one will find. Mr. Alongi is an institution in... More

I wish I would have bought a dressing to take home with me. We had a pasta buffet which was ok. But the salad was amazing and they make their own dressing. The garlic bread was wonderful - baked to perfection and the pizza was pretty good too. The red and white pastas were a little blah - not too... More

The food tasted fine but the group found the portions on the smaller side. The prices also seemed a little on the higher side. The atmosphere and decor were as expected. The restaurant was clean and easy to enter and leave.

My favorite is the Italian wedding soup and Mushroom Ravioli. My husband loves the pizza and bread. Someone always to greet you!

Thank you for your comments. We sometimes get caught short staffed after local events so we do apologize for your wait. We strive for a 20 minute service time and we failed to meet it. We thank you for visiting Du Quoin and hope you visit again. More

Plenty of seating. Waitress was attentive. Food mediocre, I had tortellini in butter/garlic sauce, didn't taste any butter and it was watery. Appetizers were good. Tira misunderstanding was very good...

I wanted to spoil my wife for her birthday. Decided to have dinner at Alongi's . They were fast and curious. We split a fine bottle of wine to start. Our waitress gave us plenty of time to enjoy our selves !!! I hate it when other servers push to "get it over as fast as they can". Old Blue... More
