Turned up at 9pm, tables were available but we were turned away by the woman at the bar. From the TripAdvisor comments we had been really looking forward to coming here after our evening at the Eiffel Tower celebrating my daughter's 11th birthday..I would say don't bother going because you might get the same poor treatment so don't take the chance and go elsewhere.

On holidays visiting Paris, we walked by and found this restaurant.
We had one 4 cheeses pizza and one fagotini. both were tasty, very good portion, well cooked, and the service was extremely nice and friendly.
Very good value for money
I think all the ingredients a restaurant should have were found in this place.
Well done, you will see us again

We loved the funky décor in this tiny restaurant 5 minutes away from the Eiffel Tower--model cars behind a glass case, compressed wine bottles hanging from the ceiling, exposed brick wall.
Excellent food & service.
We had dinner here 3 times we liked it so much. On our last visit our waitress, recognizing us as repeat customers, rewarded us with a complimentary dessert.
We'll return on future visits to Paris.

First time & first night in the “city of love”! We were staying nearby the Eiffel Tower and it was obvious with so many tourists around, local restaurants would be priced according and I wasn’t sure that quality of food would be great or level of service would be that good either.

It’s situations like these where TripAdvisor is an invaluable resource! Quickly we were able to choose where to go and true to the so many positive reviews, Alfio didn’t disappoint!

The restaurant is a nice size with has a modern chic vibe and excellent seating options inside and out. We had a lovely antipasto entree to share, two main plates (fish & eggplant), washed down with glass of house white wine and water (tap water which comes free, chilled in a refillable glass bottles and is perfectly drinkable).

Won’t go into details but our meals were very fresh, delicious and generously portioned and very good value for money. We used the sliced baguette provided to mop up the tasty juices from each of our dishes.

We didn’t order pizza, but they looked and smelled amazing!

The waitress was an excellent host, made us feel very welcome and was generous with her time and local knowledge. Being our first time in Paris we were unsure as where to eat at breakfast and were given a couple of recommendations in the local area (one being a more traditional French cafe). I’m looking forward to trying both!

Thank you again to those people who take the time to post reviews on this site. I have no hesitation in recommending Alfio.
“Bon appétit!”
