This restaurant has been around for a long time. Went with my two girls. The service is great. Waiters are attentive, helpful, and courteous. Food arrived quickly and hot. Unfortunately this is where the best part of the meal ended. I had fettuccine w mushrooms. The dish was served w egg noodles and what seemed to be canned mushrooms. The... More

Ate there for lunch last week. Had a salad and pizza. The salad was average good. The pizza flavor was good but it was burnt around the edges. The restaurant had a bad smell inside.

The service and the food was great. We ordered the chicken fettuccine, chicken parmesan. My daughter ordered a loaded baked potato. Both of the entrees came with a great salad and a bread basket. The potato was extremely lacking. Almost an embarrassment. The food was hot with a great taste! Just stay away from the potatoes.

I remember going to Alesi's in the mid-1950s to have "pizza pie", something never before heard of in Lafayette. Wow! Blew me away. Have been a fan ever since. They serve a full menu of Italian treats but I have never been able to get past their pepperoni and mushroom pizza. Tends to be greasy but, man, is it good.

The building leaves much to be desired! However, it's quaint and private! The service was exceptional! The fried mushrooms were not stuffed but breaded and delicious! I had chicken parmesan and my husband had spaghetti. The entrees came with an excellent salad. Both of our entrees were delicious and more than enough food! We will definitely return! I highly recommend... More

People are rude, the pizza is mediocre, and prices are sky high. Wish it was the old Alesi's. Pizza has no flavor. Got the seafood manicotti once and it was dry and tasted really fishy. Not recommended.

We were intriqued by the old-fashioned sign, so we decided to give Alesi's a try. We read on the menu that the restaurant had been around for 50 years. We could certainly see why. The pizza was great. The service was wonderful too. The decor of the restaurant is dated, but we found that it only added to the atmosphere.

This place used to be one of my favorites but unfortunately the quality has become very low while the prices are high. Last time I eat there, I ordered veal. Rather than actual cuts of veal, I got a patty of low quality ground meat. The patty was of such low quality that it contained, cartilage and ligament material. And... More

Every dish we have tried, we have liked. I have been a customer for more than 50 years. Service has always been great.
