Visited with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the food and friendly waitstaff. The waitstaff were very helpful and attentive, but not overly so. We all agreed the food was Delicious! I had veal Marsala and it was very good. The wine menu was pretty wide and we had a nice merlot. We will go again!

Food is fair, and service was poor. My wife and I live a mile away and decided to try this "Italian" restaurant. I ordered basic spaghetti and meatballs. My wife ordered fettuccine Alfredo and asked for chicken on it. After a 20 minute wait without even being acknowledged, the hostess/owner asked us if we were finished, and did we enjoy... More

We are back for our annual symposium and look forward to an "Italian night" amongst all the seafood. We started with warm bread and oil with our calamari ( the red gravy (sauce) was tremendous). The salad is large and served family style which was very good. I had the chicken parmigiana which was wonderful. Wife's meat was more rare... More

Alex's is located in West Ocean City in a very unassuming shopping plaza. It seems popular with locals in a very crowded restaurant market. This place is old school elegant inside with table linens, water service, and candles. The servers are all excellent.We have been here 3 or 4 times over the past 5 years when we travel here. The...

Hmm, from reading the other reviews, it looks like we ordered the best meal - the pizza. The crust was freshly made, good sauce and the sausage and roasted red peppers were delicious. We were there for lunch and there was only one other table, so no service issues. GO FOR THE PIZZA!

We are traveling from the 4th Most Restaurants Per Capita and realized that this area is restaurant poor. 99% in area is tourist seafood fry shops. We were not interested in "seafood" and decided to drive back to a place called Osteria Fraschetti. The pasta is not fresh -- validated this by the waiter. Their sauces were alright could be...

Osteria is an Italian restaurant that is simple and inexpensive. Vacationers passing Alex's Italian Restaurant heading to Ocean City saw Osteria Franchetti. Simply put, Alex's last name is Franchetti and it's his restaurant. Some thought Osteria meant Oyster. Why not it's only a few miles to the Atlantic Ocean. So Alex told me it's best to keep it simple so... More

Someone had recommended this restaurant and we decided to give it a try. The food was very mediocre and the service was very poor. The place was so noisy that it was difficult to carry on a conversation at the table. We asked for lemon for our water. The waiter brought three pieces of lemon for 7 people. We ordered... More

We sort of stumbled in for an italian meal one night. Never expected how good everything would be. Italian music by candlelight. Warm atmosphere. Attentive waiter and the most excellent food.

This place is a joke and disgrace to italian cuisine, i am a chef from the area and this is just another let down... My entree was a pound of box pasta(what true italian place uses this?) it was topped with 8 baby clams and tossed in a butter it clam water sauce i couldn't even eat it. Better off... More
