Plenty of seating. Waitress was attentive. Food mediocre, I had tortellini in butter/garlic sauce, didn't taste any butter and it was watery. Appetizers were good. Tira misunderstanding was very good...

I wanted to spoil my wife for her birthday. Decided to have dinner at Alongi's . They were fast and curious. We split a fine bottle of wine to start. Our waitress gave us plenty of time to enjoy our selves !!! I hate it when other servers push to "get it over as fast as they can". Old Blue... More

I haven't had anything at Alongi's that wasn't delicious! Food, environment, and family are awesome.

I've never had sandwiches so good! The bread was fresh, the meat was moist, and the flavors were succulent. They need to put up a location in my hometown!

Ate at Alongi's on a Wednesday evening. It was not very busy. Nice atmosphere. Pictures of Italy on the walls. Nice background music- Frank Sinatra type. Service was good. Large portions. I had lasagna and a garden salad. Others had spaghetti with clam sauce and spaghetti with Alfredo sauce. Everyone enjoyed their meal!

Enjoyed a quiet dinner at Alongi's last week. I had lasagna (the night's special) and my husband enjoyed his favorite eggplant parmigiana. Servings were so generous we enjoyed our leftovers the next evening! Bread was delicious as well. Prices were very fair. If we travel through DuQuoin again, this will be a MUST stop.

Daughter wanted a local eatery not a chain. I suggested here although hadn't visited in many years. Got there around two for lunch. Just as good as I remembered. I had cannelloni with the mandarin salad. She had veal Marsala with house salad. Both were excellent. Service was good,too. Glad we went a little out of our way for this... More

Great service. Alongi's staff is very efficient, courteous and friendly. They are obviously well versed in serving larger groups. Menu for lunch was a combo of 2 items for a very reasonable cost. There was an excellent variety on the lunch menu. The full menu was also available. Lunch portions were ample servings. I had the cheese ravioli and house... More
