This is a hidden gem. I have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. The prices are reasonable, and the food is amazing. Especially the steamed mussels. I went to Little Italy in Cleveland this summer, and Alessandro's beats them hands down!

Such a cute, quaint place! We got there early after reading other reviews and we had no trouble getting in – but it was on a Wednesday night – I imagine their weekends are packed. Not one person in our party of 8 was disappointed:...More

-very small seating area, get there early for dinner. Nicely decorated, not fancy, very good menu. Wine is available, homemade bread, wonderful staff. All the dishes looked soooo good, hard to choose. I hope we are in the area again just to eat here!!

Our favorite place to eat out, when we actually have a chance to get out. Good wine selection. Excellent service, The owner, Alessandro is the chef and he always makes sure the meals are individually prepared; especially if there is diet restrictions.

Great Italian food, fresh and delicious. Homemade bread, good wine selection. On a weekend get there early, or expect to wait. Always worth the wait.

Sorry, don't know. But we always try to get there about 4:45 pm because they fill up fast-it is on the cozy side. Otherwise one would have to wait til first crowd ate and left.
