Thank you for the kind words! Even though the pizza promotion is going up, it's still only half price. If you want to try the food, come dine in on Monday or Tuesday night for our half price promotion. It's a cash only special like the pizza promotion, and each person that gets the special must purchase a soft drink... More

It was my son's birthday and pizza is one of his favorites. Both my kids like plain pizza and my husband likes the margarita pizza. I had a Cobb salad which was very good. And my husband had a salad with grilled chicken as well. The had no problem customizing our salads a bit. Service was friendly and timing very... More

We frequently eat at Alfonso's. The menu is varied, the food is excellent, and the prices are very affordable. Great for a family dinner.

I realize that excellent is just one star away from very good. As it should be. When we first entered we were positioned a table away, in the back, opposite the toilets. We asked for a move and was immediately accommodated and we determined the table. The wait staff came shortly and took our beverage order as expected. This is... More

For many years my company has ordered from Alfonso's for business meetings. I've eaten here for dinner with friends. To me it's a pizzeria with a dining room and waitstaff. There is nothing gourmet about the food. Overcooked pasta entrees, lots of tomato sauce that's not good quality, and cheese on almost everything. That's not Italian food, that's pizzeria food....

Having lived in Somerville most of my life this place is always a must stop. It is a restaurant that never gave me a bad meal. The staff is always friendly, you get treated like family. It is a staple of main Street Somerville. Great prices,specials and served to your preference.
