Visited a friend in January and decided to dine here as it was a Monday night and not many places open. There was only a few people in that evening, but due to day of week and it being January i could understand the lack of customers around. The interior is OK, a bit dated but clean. The menu for...

Large restaurant with music a little too loud but the food is very good indeed. Large portions good flavours broad menu with good pizza and pasta - reminds me of the successful US Italian family restaurants - you can never go wrong there.

Go here every time on the island, great range of food so suits bigger parties, when different tastes are needing to be catered. Calzone pizza with a steak in it! Excellent and hanging kebabs have great meat selection. Again it's upstairs and nothing startling to look at, but it's very clean, kitchen on view and staff very nice and helpful.good... More

Although it was an 'out of season' Tuesday evening when we visited, a good few tables were already occupied. The staff were attentive, helpful and very polite, and the atmosphere and lighting were relaxed and inviting. Drinks were ordered and arrived very swiftly, our food was delightful and well served, which all added up to a lovely evening in Alessandro's.

Busy Friday night saw the place busy but still managed to fit us in despite no booking. Pizzas and starters were very good and definitely on a par with the best we have back home. Unfortunately couldn't say that for the service. In Italian restaurants its usually top notch. No so for us. After seating it was at least 15... More

A group of us went for a family meal, the menu is HUGE with a wide and varied choice. Service was fast and friendly. We all choose different main courses and everyone was more than happy, I had a stroganoff (fillet & rib eye strips) in a mushroom sauce with rice and chips, it was delicious. The portions are huge...

On a recent business trip to Douglas my colleagues and I ate both dinner and lunch at Alessandro's. The restaurant is upstairs above shops on Castle Street. The food was excellent, (I had CASARECCE CAPESANTE), hence going back for lunch the following day. We all chose different meals and they were all excellent. The menu is quite extensive with Italian... More

Excellent selection of food, from light snacks to full meals. Large wine and spirit list. Great atmosphere and attractive décor. Good value. Attentive staff. A hidden gem above the main shopping street.
