Dinner here with party of 8. 7 people received their entrees...my spouse was waiting for his, a salad. Waiter came to table & said "start eating....his will come!" Which I felt was very rude. I said, no, I was waiting. Do not feel it was his place to say this. People were still eating and wait staff began clearing table,... More

The 3 of us loved our salads, pizza and sangria! We usually choose from the excellent meal selections but last night tried the pizza. Everything here is great. It was punctuated by a very talented young waiter. Sorry not to get his name. He was awesome!

We were driving home to Cape Cod from NJ, and while my husband drove, I tried to Google restaurants along I-95. It was very challenging to read reviews and make a choice. I finally took a chance and had my husband drive to Alforno. I knew from the reviews that the restaurant was in a strip-mall, and so the outside... More

I always stop in here while back in CT. The staff are friendly, and very attentive. The menu selections are great, and the pizza is wonderful if you like a nice thin crust brick oven pizza. I would recommend this restaurant to any one in the Old Saybrook/Westbrook area. The also have the Frequent Pier program for those that get... More

Good pizza, but the cheese is scarce and varies in quality. Good tasting sauce and fine crust. I would recommend paying for extra cheese.

We were visiting my brother for his daughters graduation. And he recommended getting pizza from here. I thought a little pricey...$75 for 3 pizzas...okay that's fine if its that good. My daughter brought it back and when we opened it...it was burnt horribly and hard. The crust actually scratched the roof of my mouth. I can see this place doesn't... More

We had dinner twice and the pasta and pizza were excellent. The owner himself greeted us and as our grandson is italien and we speak also the language, there were immediately a big understanding! Could recommend it!

We love living in Hawaii--BUT for Great Pizza--we had to fly to Connecticut. We are very familiar with Pepe's Pizza--but ALFORNO is above and beyond GREAT!! YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY!!!! The 3 of us delved into a Margueritta with sausage and mushrooms. The Margueritta was too plain by itself BUT the addition of the Sausage was terrific as were the mushrooms.... More

This is the third or fourth time that I've been to AlForno for pizza. This time my friends who were visiting from Hawaii requested that we go there again. They were here three years ago and loved the pizza. I grew up near Wooster St. in New Haven where some of the best pizzas in the world were made. They... More
