My husband and I eat at Cafe Alfresco whenever we are in town. Service is superb and food is amazing!! Seriously try the cream of asparagus soup!! We've had a variety of items from the menu; pasta, pizza and sandwiches all are very good. They have a wood-fired pizza oven that makes even the garlic bread special. Our server Ron... More

Cafe Alfresco is directly adjacent to the Buffet. If it weren't for the glass partitions you would be part of the Buffett. So it makes for good people watching, like a meal and a show. The food is always good. We like to order the pizza as a calzone. Our waitress we nice but her default response to all of... More

Great delicious food with best service. Ron who is our waiter really listened to our requirements, he suggested best menu items. I ordered a cocktail and did not like it, they replaced it for us with a different one. Highly recommend this restaurant for all tourists visiting Reno. Prices are very reasonable.

Ron M. was our server and did a great job. We enjoyed a Hawaiian-type pizza and a salad, both good. Service, including refill of drinks, prompt and efficient. It is sandwiched in a busy casino area overlooking a very busy, very large buffet area so neither scenic nor quiet. Also they don't have a bar in the restaurant so if... More

Enjoyed dinner (half rack of ribs) - the portions were very generous, the meat was extremely tender, and the barbecue sauce was phenomenal! I only wish the hotel room provided a refrigerator where I could have saved the leftovers for lunch the next day!

We ate dinner here twice during our stay....excellent both times. Pizza and salads the first night and Pasta and salads the second night. We started with Martinis that were excellent and finished with their Gelato which was really tasty....hard to decide because too many flavors to choose from. Good experiences all around.
