Alfredo of Rome
Posted by Mary from Fairfield, CT on 01/18/2006
We were in NY and planned to go to our favorite Indian restaurant only to be disappointed that it had closed. We wandered around stopping to read the menus and came across Alfredo's. Lunch had just started so we were one of the first to arrive. Immediately we were given a plate of bread with 3 various spreads. We chose the fixed price lunch. For our appetizers, we had the "Italian Sushi" and chose the fried calamari with lobster. For our main entree, we had Baked Eggplant and Penne Pasta. I never had such wonderful eggplant. It melted in your mouth. The sauce on the pasta was very nice. Ice cream and tiramisu ended the meal. I do admit, it was expensive, but don't you get what you paid for? You definitely do at Alfredo's.

I went to this resturant with my boyfriend and we were very disappointed. The food portions weren't what we thought, and the food seemed to have been premade and was sitting around in the kitchen. The appetizer came out first then the bread came few minutes before our entrees came. The Fettuccine Alfredo with it's price looked like a children's portion. The resturant itself wasn't very big. The tables are cramped together and not very easy to get in and out if you are sitting on the inside. Also there isn't much of a beer selection. The only good thing about the resturant was the water.

Discovered this restaurant a few years ago when I was staying at the Algonquin. I always try to eat here whenever I am in NYC. Their preparation is the standard by which I will judge fettucine alfredo for the rest of my life. Like the creme brulee at Hayes Street Grill in SF. Love the Hirschfelds (sp?). Quirky modern interior. I highly reccomend it.

I love Alfredo of Rome. My husband and I had our wedding rehearsal dinner there. The food, drinks, service and staff were all incredible! It's a funky cool atmosphere, with bright colors. It's in a great location as well - right across the street from Rockefeller Center. I'll always have a soft spot for Alfredo!

I live three blocks from here and can't believe that I hadn't been in so long. It's now on my favorite restaurant list. The Fettucine Alfredo is as good as everybody says, and on another night, I had a daily special, lobster bisque risotto with chunks of lobster, absoultely incredible. The only thing I would avoid is getting the Fetticune Alfredo for two, which you get by default if two people at your table order the FA. They bring a larger plate of it and divide it in two, and you end up with less than if you ordered just one serving. This is my only complaint, and easy enough to avoid.

Given its proximity to Rock Center, Alfredo's probably could skate by like many of the restaurants in the neighborhood do -- with overpriced mediocre food and service -- preying on the thousands of tourists that come by and don't know any better. But the general manager and his staff are not satisfied stopping there. Instead, they have made Alfredo's one of the best and most interesting Italian eateries in the city. The wine selection and daily specials are always top notch as our their mainstays like the famous "Fett. Alfredo" and other pasta delights. Don't leave without trying one of their apple martinis which is made with vodaka infused with real apples over the course of days (weeks?) rather than the artifically flavored stuff!

Alfredo's is the best italian restaurant that I been to in a long time. The staff is amazing and very attentive to your needs. Also the fettucine alfredo is to die for.
