Orlando >Alfonso's Pizza & More
Still good.... I dont know what these people are talking about I have been going to Alfonso's for probably about 3 or 4 years now and I think they are great. The pizza is great New York style, the wings are always cooked perfectly and with good wing sauce and good atmosphere. The prices have gone up a little but every pizza place has so they are still comparable. If you want cheap go to Hungry Howies.
Best to Worst in 3 years Congrads Alfonso's.
This place use to be at the top of our list for pizza. It held the # 1 spot for over 12 months. (We are 5 guys who travel all of central florida in search of the best Pizza each week check out our website: the pizza snobs . com
I don't know what happened to fonzies- We loved it at one time -now we won't even go near there.
There are several great pies around town this is not one of them.
New Owners, Bad Changes..
Recently, Alfonso's Pizza & More was sold, and bought by the owner of the Anthony's Pizza chain here in Orlando. With Anthony's aside, the changes they have made to Alfonso's are noteworthy-- but not in a good way.
The pizza has changed dramatically, slices won't even hold stiff with two hands. I had toppings, cheese and grease all over my hands just from attempting to eat one slice.
My partner got the meatball parmesan sub with sweet potatoe fries (which were one of their special quirks) but ended up much to his dismay. The fries were literally burned, all black with little specks of color. Definitely not edible. And for the sub, the menu stated "yes, we make our own meatballs!" The meatballs in my sub DEFINITELY were not homemade, they came straight from the bottom of a freezer.
The only redeeming qualities of what's left of the good old Alfonsos's are the pleasant servers and bar staff, and the inexplicably cheap beer and drinks.
great little neighborhood pizza joint. The service was fabulous! Our server, Rochelle, was top notch, friendly, attentive (but not too attentive). The atmosphere was light and neighborly. Lots of regulars in this place told me all I needed to know about the quality of food and service here. The pizza was fresh and tasty. The menu is extensive and has a little bit of everything from subs to pizza to pasta.
Bad Service. We have been long time customers and because they have brought in new people that didn't know us we were treated like no one's. When you have spent so much time in one splace to eat to be told to get out because you wanted to talk to a manager regarding service that is wrong. Waiting for a servers is at least a 30 min. wait. Food is not bad but waiting to get serves sucks.Had a total of 20 people in the restaurant no reason for bad sevice,will call owners on Monday!
New York Thin Crust. Bad! Don't waste your time. We are from Connecticut where here is good pizza on most every block. We're on a quest to find THE best pizza in Central FL! Recommend by a food critic and it was NOT GOOD. Service was fine. Pizza was fresh, greasy and pretty much on a cracker. I NEVER saw a pizza like that in New England. The garlic rolls were ok, though they needed to be warmed more. I doubt they made them there, since they tasted good and their pizza crust tasted like nothing.
They used to have great Pizza.. Alfonso's used to be my favorite pizza place. However, when they started expanding I believe they started cutting corners. I always get a pepperoni, mushroom, italian sausage. One time I ordered it, and when I got home it looked like it had bacon instead of italian sausage. The next time I ordered, I checked it before I left and again it looked like bacon. I asked and was told it was ground sausage. I told them that it made it taste like bacon, not sausage and asked if they have sliced sausage like I used to get and they said no. I started noting the amount of other toppings seemed a little scarce too. Last time I ordered they were still grinding sausage. That's ok, I'll go to _____. (It's that little place in Winter Park and I haven't been disappointed yet.)
Best Italian Dishes. Whats more to say,, Alfonso's Pizza/Italian Restaurant on Edgewater Dr in College Pk, Orlando has the best pizza and makes the very best Italian dishes,,, quality ingredients cooked just right,, excellent "Italian Gravy" (sauce) and understands what Al Daunte means.. If your like me an Italian food lover from the North East (NY/New Jersey etc) and have been a little disappointed trying to find a good Italian pasta dish and/or pizza, then try Alfonso's in College Pk.. The best I found. As good as Little Italy NYC... Very good pasta and gravy dishes... Have Fun....
If perfect pizza is your passion, then consider Alfonso's your very own slice of heaven in Orlando..
Part delicatessen, part diner, with plenty of Formica tables crammed into a small dining room, and a long take-out counter (adjacent to an open kitchen) occupying the restaurant's back half. TVs and newspaper clippings (positive reviews, of course) decorate the walls.
The pizzas feature sublime, made-from-scratch, hand-tossed crusts (thin or oh-so-thick Sicilian), specially imported cheeses and a tomato sauce seasoned to perfection. Toppings range from the traditional (pepperoni and sausage) to the hip (chopped spinach and blackened chicken). Garlic lovers should delight in the pungent white pizza, topped with mozzarella and ricotta. Alfonso's also serves a slew of appetizers, including jalapeno poppers, veggie-topped garlic bread and hot wings (the light-'em-ups will set your mouth on fire!). Entrees include cold and hot subs, calzones and strombolis, and baked pasta dishes and parmigiana dinners. Check the white board for daily specials.
Best Pizza. My family loves Alfonso's. We drive by at least 3 other pizza places to go there. Why? Great pizza, of course! The freshest ingredients and special home made crust and sauce are outstanding. The Sentinel has voted them Best Pizza in Orlando. Staff is always friendly. Try the Family Special -- a large pie, salad (get the house dressing), an order of fresh hot garlic rolls, and 2 liters of soda for about $17. It's a deal!
