While staying at the Atlantis, we were in the mood for something lighter than the buffet, so we tried the Café Alfresco. My wife had a pasta dish, and I had a bowl of minestrone soup.

We were two couples checking into the Hotel Atlantis after a long day of airplane travel. We were looking for a reasonably priced dinner location that had a menu to suit everyone. The service was friendly, fairly quick and our meals were good.

The food and service are both amazing. I have tried many of the dishes there and the pizzas never disappoint. Make sure to stop and try the gelato, you won't regret it.

Cafe Alfresco is directly adjacent to the Buffet. If it weren't for the glass partitions you would be part of the Buffett. So it makes for good people watching, like a meal and a show. The food is always good. We like to order the pizza as a calzone. Our waitress we nice but her default response to all of... More

Great delicious food with best service. Ron who is our waiter really listened to our requirements, he suggested best menu items. I ordered a cocktail and did not like it, they replaced it for us with a different one. Highly recommend this restaurant for all tourists visiting Reno. Prices are very reasonable.
