The pizza was awesome. The works is the one I had. Crisp crust, plenty of toppings. The service was a bit slow and they weren't that busy, but I would try them again bc the food was so good.

We had salad and pizza. It was very good. Very different too though. I don't know that it will ever be my favorite pizza, but it was certainly good, especially for a change. I will be trying their normal Italian dishes the next time we go. (There will definitely be a next time!) The service is super friendly, and we've... More

We personally love the pizza here, thin crust and crispy, they can even twice cook it if you ask. Very accommodating with any order. Wait staff has been there for years and are great. Manny is the man.

We came because my wife remembered it from the 60's. The salad was fresh and full of delicious Italian meats with olives. The house Italian dressing was delicious. We shared a half salad. The 10 inch pizza was wonderful with a crisp and so tasty crust. The Italian sausage on it was so enjoyable. The service was friendly and helpful.... More

This restaurant has been around for a long time. Went with my two girls. The service is great. Waiters are attentive, helpful, and courteous. Food arrived quickly and hot. Unfortunately this is where the best part of the meal ended. I had fettuccine w mushrooms. The dish was served w egg noodles and what seemed to be canned mushrooms. The... More

Ate there for lunch last week. Had a salad and pizza. The salad was average good. The pizza flavor was good but it was burnt around the edges. The restaurant had a bad smell inside.

The service and the food was great. We ordered the chicken fettuccine, chicken parmesan. My daughter ordered a loaded baked potato. Both of the entrees came with a great salad and a bread basket. The potato was extremely lacking. Almost an embarrassment. The food was hot with a great taste! Just stay away from the potatoes.

I remember going to Alesi's in the mid-1950s to have "pizza pie", something never before heard of in Lafayette. Wow! Blew me away. Have been a fan ever since. They serve a full menu of Italian treats but I have never been able to get past their pepperoni and mushroom pizza. Tends to be greasy but, man, is it good.
