Alfonso's Italian Restaurant

Just up the street from Casa Linda, Alfonso's – named after proprietor Peter Columbo's father – has been pulling in the neighborhood crowd since 1991. The shiny black-and-white checkerboard floor, fresh flowers on the tables and colorful photos of Italian street scenes set the mood for a cozy, enjoyable dining experience. For starters, they've got an ample platter of antipasti –peppers, pepperoni, cheese, tomatoes and garlicky olives – before moving on to hot garlic rolls and rich minestrone. The chicken Marsala entrée is sautéed in white wine and served under a heap of buttery mushrooms. Most entrées come with a generous side of pasta (your choice) and spicy-sweet tomato sauce. Wind up with the icy cappuccino pie – one slice divides nicely for two.
