Had lunch today at Al Fresco's during a visit to see my Dad and sister (her recommendation)----had my doubts entering the establishment because it doesn't present well from the street and things inside looked somewhat dated. It will now be our 'go to' place----service experience was terrific and the food was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented.

I have eaten at Alfresco's on several occassions and have always had a good meal and service. Their sauce is flavorful. They have several specials for take out only at C & E. One is two meals for $22 (you have a choice of four or five options). Each meal comes with a salad and garlic bread. It's a great... More

This place beats Roma's hands down. The atmosphere was friendly and the food was heavenly. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is my go to place when I go out to eat with friends and family.

Food was okay, the service was very poor. Looks much better from the inside than it does from the outside of the buildin

Look, this is not some fancy Italian restaurant but the food is really good and they have been there for decades. I eat there whenever I'm in the area because I can count on it to be consistently tasty and clean.

Al Fresco Ristorante and C & E Pizza have been around since 1974, but not in the same location, they started off smaller and across the street. C & E Pizza is Al Fresco's take out counter, like another reviewer stated. Al Fresco's dining room is average sized with a raised semi-private area in the center for parties. There is... More

We found this pizzeria on line traveling through the State. We missed a New Haven pizza stop so we thought we found a suitable choice based upon initial reviews. We were wrong. C&E is really just a take-out counter while Alfresco's (next door) serves the pizza and grinders - and a lot more. We wanted pizza and grinders and we... More

Recently had dinner here on a Sunday evening. The room was pretty quiet and could use some updating. My wife had stuffed shells $8.99 which came with soup or salad. She chose a meatball soup which was very good. Hearty and all the food here did come out hot. The shells were decent enough. I had fried clams. They came... More

Don't go there for your party needs... Ordered 5 pizzas for an early morning pick-up for a kid's birthday party (4th grade) and confirmed the order on Saturday for the Monday pick-up... go there Monday and no one is there. I was a regular customer at this establishment but no more. This is a business that you simply can't rely... More

This place is highly over rated and is mediocre at best. Located in a questionable neighborhood and adjacent to a really aromatic creek the parking lay out is odd to say the least. The restaurant bills itself as serving American, Italian, pizza, seafood and a steakhouse. Use your own judgement as to how any one place can do such a... More
