Swore off years ago because of their treatment of a group there for a party...but forgot that till I tried them again today. Just boring...no taste...greasy...50 cents for mushrooms on a slice and there were probably 6 slices of mushrooms. People rave about the decor...how about the 2" of dust on all the clutter/decor? Soup was good but again--what's with... More

We called in an order for take-out pizza & wings. 12" pie with mushrooms (that you had to stare to find) and a dozen buffalo HOT wings. The wings were small and mushy. No hot sauce at all,. They were plain. For this mess, we were charged $26.50!! The girl working there obviously didn't know what she was doing. This... More

After a long day in Cooperstown we went out for pizza. Alfresco's was a great find. The pizza was made all with fresh ingredients, the crust, sauce and cheese were excellent. Service was great. Some nice beer on draft. Good prices.

We have eaten here twice in the last month and had the exact same dinner both times--but had two very, very different experiences! The food has been absolutely delicious both times, but unfortunately, our servers were as different as day and night. Our first visit, we had a young woman server who was top notch--the second time, we had a... More

We had a couple slices of pizza here. Doesn't sound like much to most people, but They were great. The slices were huge. The staff is very friendly. I will be eating here again next time I am in the area. Probably more than a couple slices!

Went here after reading all the good reviews, wanted good Italian food. Good was an over statement, it was nasty, I mean NASTY...... Had the veal piccata, it was not. There some kind of oil on the bottom of the plate, and it was not lemon butter sauce, and the capers where the size of marbles. I will never return...............

I've been a patron of this establishment for many years. Another classic Italian eatery in a town crowded with both older and newer competitors. You will not be disappointed. They also accommodate modestly sized groups, with a variety of seating options.
