Normally I don't even think twice when driving by a strip mall if the might be some kind of hidden gem tucked inside next to a Benny's. But after moving to the shoreline our realtor said we really have to try Alforno! He specifically mentioned...More

I have eaten here a couple times when I'm in the area. Both times the food was good and the service was too. I like that they have option for "smaller" pasta plates (I'm not a big eater). They have a great menu and lots...More

A few times the food was good, many times it was not. Not sure why, whether it is a chef issue, or supplier issue. I would not recommend. Service is not very friendly, or good either and for what you are getting, they are pricey.

Started with the butternut squash and apple soup which was delicious, and had the small plate of spaghetti and meatballs. The service is wonderful and the servers are knowledgeable. The specials are interesting too. Ambience is wonderful, good for families too.

I'd not been to this restaurant before and thus was rather surprised to walk into a lovely 'intimate' sized space with a great vibe. I've been looking for a chic but fun Italian bistro on the shoreline....and this is it. Located on Route 1 Boston...More

The free bread, coupled with nice olive oil put on the table, was great! However, my chicken parmesan was no better than a frozen entry available at the supermarket. The lunch portion, priced at $15.50, was about the size of a small hamburger and came...More
