You will LOVE this Ristorante. the Chef/Owner Said is just fantastic. He made us the Joey Carroll special, founded chicken, covered with egg plant and mozzarella, on top of a bed of pasta...holy cow Batman...we devoured it. Highly recommend you stop by for some authentic dining. It's a BYOB so plan ahead.

Absolutely love this place! The atmosphere, service, food, quality and price are beyond amazing. A great menu full of choices, and if you can't find something they'll customize/make you something with whatever they have! Perfect for any occasion; I've gone on dates, with my friends and with children.

Always a pleasure to dine here. The food is always great, cooked just as you like it. The server Lubna is a delight, always smiling, always happy, eager to please, always moving! Owner Said takes special pleasure in attending to each guest, asking about family members and talking about his family. It's like stopping at a neighbors house for a... More

Authentic family run joint with superb food! The place was packed with locals when we went on a Friday night. The service is slow - the way it should be. BYOB, drink, talk, enjoy!

We are two couples who only arrived in Winthrop late this afternoon(29th October 2016) and we went for a meal at Alia Ristorante a short 5 minute stroll from our hotel. We were given a lovely welcome and were surprised to learn that we could use our own wine, which by chance we had just bought, and there was no... More

We come here often and it never disappoints. The owner is extremely warm and welcoming. We've tried most of the items on the menu and everything we've eaten, from the penne fresca to the chicken d'Alia is absolutely scrumptious. And, the ambience is cozy and lovely, as well. It will always be one of my all-time favorite restaurants.

We have had the pleasure of dining at Alia several times. Everything they have served has been great. We have particularly enjoyed their Osso Buco (with cous-cous optional), shrimp dishes, a house special chicken dish, and yummy appetizers. They don't have a liquor license, but there is a liquor store within a block. Recommended to anyone who enjoys a good... More
