    Amazing food, great staff. They have great gluten free rolls, pizza and amazing pasta. They are very knowledgeable and careful about gluten free to the point where they have different color plates for gluten free items. Highly recommend

    Fried food choices are excellent, very pricey, but good. Dedicated GF fryer. I'm personally not a fan of the pasta or pizza crust. The pasta is corn pasta which I do not care for, I prefer rice or a rice/corn mix. Love the GF chicken tenders and mozzarella sticks. Wish they offered GF garlic bread!

    Had the calamari which was cooked perfectly! It was bland, but the sauce more than made up for it. Broccoli Rabe was also very good. The pasta totally surpassed my expectations. All the food was tasty and the service was excellent as well. As for contamination issues in the past... efforts have been made to prevent that from happening again. They use color coded plates for gluten free dishes, have a dedicated fryer, and tge server was very knowledgable about which dressings might have trace amounts of gluten. I'm not hyper sensitive, so it's not an issue for me though.

    full gluten free menu mozzarella sticks are perfection, pasta tasted a little over cooked UPDATE: last visit to Alfonso's we were served the regular calamari and not the gluten free. did not realize at the time (we just thought it was very good for gf) my sister was sick all night. moral of the story always double check what they serve you. we told the server we had two party members with Celiac's and that did not make a difference apparently

    Gluten free pizza here is AMAZING!!! Closest thing to real pizza I have found. I also love the chicken parm sandwich. I mean, a gluten free chick parm sandwich! Yum. Also love that I can get fried calamari and mozzarella sticks. That's so rare! Thanks, Alfonso's!

    I love their GF calamari, but I was disappointed in their Chicken parm, you could tell it was frozen before it was deep fried.

    They have a very extensive GF menu. Pasta was delicious! Generous portion too. The pizza crust was very thin and undercooked, but it was still very tasty and devoured by my 6 year old. No one has gotten sick, so we will be back!

    Best gluten free Italian food ever! The only GF calamari I've seen, and it's amazing! Gorgonzola Chicken is my favorite! Must go!

    Just ok. Glad there was something gluten free to eat, but it wasn't that good. More like, if your going out with other people who aren't gf, they'll like it a lot. Wouldn't just go there looking for delicious gluten free food.

    I went based on others recommendations on this app. First off, they do have an extensive menu of GF items. My food, however, was not the best. The sauce for my eggplant parm tasted like ketchup. The eggplant itself was good, however, and almost made up for it. My daughters gf piZa had a pool of grease that made her dinner most unappetiIng. the price (125 for 4 entrees and two appetizers, no alcohol) was a bit steep for the quality. And our service was spotty. I would rather a smaller menu with better quality.

    The quality of the food here is just ok. Nothing was memorable or seasoned particularly well. I've had the pizza, salads and pasta dishes but won't go back for more.

    Nice big GF menu, chicken parmigiana that reminded me of being able to eat gluten, super tasty focaccia...even meatballs, pasta, pizza. Highly recommend to anyone and will be back!

    I love the the GF menu here! The food is everything I have been missing, and so love. Their marinara is to die for! Now the big but ...after talking with one of the managers, a note of caution! He first started out by assuring me that great care was taken, then went on to say the pizza was done on the same surface as the non-GF pie. But they wiped down the counter... then it went into the same oven. My real concern came when he assured me they did have a dedicated fryer... unless it got too busy, then they needed it for the mainline food menu! I opted for the GF pasta, the safest bet, after that conversation, and it was indeed wonderful! Ok, Alphonsos, love your food, BUT you are either going to play this one straight with those of us that need to have a gluten free menu, due to celiac, or you are not! I advise CAUTION! I would love a reply from Alphonso's on this? (this would've been a 5 star review except for the above conversation!)

    Wasn't expecting breaded chicken for my GF chicken parm. Was so excited when it arrived. It was delicious! Same with the mozzarella sticks!! I definitely recommend this place.

    Best GF mozzarella sticks I have EVER had! Their fried calamari and penne vodka were very good as well. Will definitely be back

    They made a mistake and gave my son regular pasta instead if gluten free. They were very apologetic but the damage was already done before. Be very vigilant because many different people are involved from waiters to servers

    Was there for a holiday lunch today. I had a great GF chicken parm!! I was not even slightly jealous of my pizza eating colleagues.
