For many years my company has ordered from Alfonso's for business meetings. I've eaten here for dinner with friends. To me it's a pizzeria with a dining room and waitstaff. There is nothing gourmet about the food. Overcooked pasta entrees, lots of tomato sauce that's not good quality, and cheese on almost everything. That's not Italian food, that's pizzeria food....

Having lived in Somerville most of my life this place is always a must stop. It is a restaurant that never gave me a bad meal. The staff is always friendly, you get treated like family. It is a staple of main Street Somerville. Great prices,specials and served to your preference.

Alfonso's has great deal, $6.50 large cheese pie M-R. Cannot beat it! Great pizza, good thin crust, nice sauce with good amount of cheese. While waiting to pick up pizza, the food looks great! Many specials and early bird deals. By the taste of the pizza and the look of the other food past by my hungry eyes, I will... More

The staff continues to deliver gracious service and always happy and eager to develop a conversation. The only issue that is making getting there a challenge is the decision of the Township to charge for parking till 8pm... More

This last visit the food just as good. I had the Capri Pizza, personal size. I took home half of it and it was just as... More

Alfonso's has been around for a very long time. They are pretty consistent with their food. It has the best pizza in town, it is the only place I order from. They also have great Italian meals. What I love about them is that they will make an order to your liking. Example, they have parpadelle noodles on the menu... More

We have visited Alfonso's many, many times. We have never been disappointed! Their pizza is excellent and the seafood cannelloni is to die for! A great neighborhood place!
