After a enjoying walk around Georgetown we decided on the Alfresco Bistro for lunch. Nice table outside, attentive service and nice menu. A great spot to relax in downtown Georgetown.

We went with friends who recommended Alfresco Bistro as one of their favorites in the area. We were not disappointed with the food. Good, fresh Italian food with good, not over-the-top, wine list. However, the service was indifferent. The staff needs more training. I am not a fan of overly friendly wait staff who hover and try to be your... More

First class atmosphere, first class service and first class food.......We were seated in the bar very busy with locals and were served by a very charming New York trans-plant who found the South much more to her liking.......She recommended the crab-stuffed lobster with grilled asparagus and we couldn't have been more pleased.....Fine dining is unusual in a bar setting but...

This place is well worth a visit for lunch or dinner. We started with a cup of tomato basil bisque, which was a tad salty, but still excellent. I had the turkey Tuscany wrap, which had red roasted peppers and cheese. Grilled to a crisp texture, it was outstanding, as was the salad which accompanied it. My companion had the... More

We went here for lunch and sampled widely among their offerings. They have an extensive menu supplemented by daily specials, and, although the day was gray, the menu offered a rainbow of choices. We sampled both fish and pasta dishes, but were most impressed with their tuna nachos and their mushroom - lobster bisque. For some relatively low cost items,... More

Always an awesome experience when I'm in this town. Staff is old school Southern friendly and food is excellent. It is truly amazing the selection and quality of food that their small kitchen consistently turns out, though it seems, as well, to contribute to intimate teamwork due to close quarters. Be sure and try the "Tuna Nachos" for an appetizer!... More

My wife and I have eaten here twice with family and friends recently. Restaurant is located in the heart of the Water Front District on Front Street. We outside both times since the weather was beautiful. The service was very good and the food was excellent. Each visit, everyone with us raved about the food. Ironically, everyone ordered something different... More

We stopped by for an Anniversary lunch with friends. What a great location uniquely decorated with a brilliant chef/owner. The unique salads, fish, and the pasta are scrumptious and the lunch portions are hardy and reasonable. The House Wine is reasonably priced and a good pour. Great find.

So surprised to have such a lovely dinner downtown Georgetown. Love the calamaria and the bolognese was perfect. Had peas and carrots. Loved it
