We where a very big group for my husbands 35th Birthday. We sat inside at a long table taking over almost the whole restaurant. But our waiter never made a mistake with our orders and our food came out all together and not one mistake!! The food was delicious! I would recommend Alfies Pizzeria to anyone. Maybe not such a...

We love Alfies Restaurant but the pizzeria was very disappointing - the best description for the pizzas was bland. We booked a table inside but were moved outside and informed on the day because they were full inside. Service was slow and the nicest thing to say about the pizzas was that they were bland. We added salt, pepper, chilli... More

It was a very pleasant experience. The service was quick and excellent.The atmosphere was viby and for a weekday lunch there were many customers--also a good indication that the food was good. They had a good wine list.

Love the pizza, we go about once a week. I've had to complain several times about other customers smoke. Ppl are allowed to smoke right outside the huge open doors so all the smoke just drifts in. This is against the law and really shouldn't be allowed. Spend some money on a proper smoking section if you wish to accomodate... More

Great atmosphere and setting outside especially at night is beautiful. No winelist, our waiter gave it his best shot to name all the wines. Limited selection of pizza and some are really pricey, was not impressed with a paper thin burned crust and the chef being stingy with the trimmings on top of pizza.

So... Yes the food is great pizza and the pasta cannot find fault, prices did shock me as I was in PTA but felt like I was paying for Jozi or Camps Bay prices. The service was very slow and the fact that you bring out focaccia without Parmesan, garlic or chili even with your pizza is a big error... More

Description
Thank you for visiting our new pizzeria. The pizzeria is a new concept being added to the Alfie's brand, something different and less formal to Alfie's Hazelwood. The idea came to us to start it, as we realised the popularity of pizza in Pretoria and South Africa in general, but felt that we could add something authentic to what is already on offer. We wanted to take it back to basics and do it right. You will notice the lightness of our dough, and that you don't feel uncomfortably full after your meal - this is no accident. In Italy, pizza dough is proofed for at least 24 hours before being made into pizza, which means that there is time for the yeast to do their job and finish creating bubbles in the dough, the reason for the lightness you will taste. Leaving the dough to proof also means that the yeast will not continue to proof the dough in your stomach, which is the reason you often experience that overly full feeling. This, in addition to our use of only the highest quality, authentic ingredients, we believe has resulted in the best, most authentic pizza available in Africa. When coming up with the concept, as with all we do, we wanted to do it properly, so we consulted stringently with experts from all over Italy to get to this result - we hope you enjoy it.
