One of the best pasta fagioli soups I've ever had. I loved the atmosphere and the ambience made me feel comfortable and at home. Huge portions as well. Not the moooost amazing Italian food I've ever had, but it's worth the prices and worth walking in to a cozy, friendly environment.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel. I drove out from downtown and it was easy enough to find. It's a very quaint family run place, and I had high hopes. The food was good, but didn't strike us as exceptional Italian food. If I lived around there, I would visit again, but not sure I would take the trip... More

We ate dinner here on a Friday night. We had a 7:00pm reservation, although I am not sure we would have needed one. We were seated promptly. There were 4 of us, and we split 2 different pasta dishes, plus we all had Caesar salads. Their bread was pretty amazing, with either olive oil or butter. The salads were great... More

We ate here when bringing my son to school. Service was fast and friendly. Good was very good and plenty of it. The calamari was good but it was served on tomorrow's instead of with sauce. The chicken parm was good. I asked for and got extra cheese. Wife and son loved the fettuccine Alfredo.

I'ts not really an Italian restaurant, its more like american-italian restaurant. i ate Carbonara, which originally with an egg on top of the dish, but in this dish there wasn't an egg at all. The carbonara was more like cream sauce with bacon, which was ok but not i wanted at the time.. so overall it was ok but probably... More

This place advertises using kids on their website and posters, but you walk in to a dingy bar before being taken to a dark, outdated eating room, and they have no kids menu. We had to ask if they had kids prices so we didn't pay $10+ for kids by ordering from the menu. They did but were not descriptive... More

We were staying in Shadyside and tried Alexander's since it was walking distance. We had a great late lunch. The food was amazing. The pasta dishes and sandwiches were very good, but the fried zucchini was awesome. Anything with their red sauce will be excellent.

You can tell real homemade Italian. The meat sauce on the gnocchi was great. Their potato chips are awesome. Make sure to get a couple orders too go. You'll want them later!

We have ordered delivery several years ago from here but wanted to visit the restaurant itself. I would have rated Alexander's Good on the above scale but it only goes average to very good. I think it was a pretty good Italian meal, the veal parm was cooked well, not greasy and with a nice sauce, a little short on... More
