    Service is ALWAYS fantastic but unfortunately some of the flair is gone. They used to give fresh silverware and clean off the table after each course and a pallet cleanser (sorbet) but somehow that left after Covid. Also they had someone taking pictures/videos with bright lights that killed the ambiance. Why wouldn’t you do this before you open?!?!? Even the staff were annoyed.

    First off, our server Mark was fantastic! We started with the octopus and some oysters as appetizers. Octopus wasn’t super rubbery like they can be, so was jazzed on that, and the red wine mignonette was perfect on the Blonde oysters from PEI. Didn’t take photos of the salad course, but I preferred the house salad to the Caesar, although the Caesar crouton I could eat every day of my life and be happy. Cacio a pepe served table side, delightful! I fell in love with their vodka sauce and diavolo sauce so I bought some to take home. I had the Veal Chop Forestiere style while the lady had the 16oz bone in filet. Raspberry tiramisu, Fernet, Black Manhattan, and a Vesper were all for dessert. So much leftovers. Such a great experience. Making our next reservation for the Bar area. Loved it! Thanks Alla Famiglia! Cheers 🍻 🍷

    Alla Famiglia is a beautiful special occasion restaurant! We celebrated my husband's birthday there last night and enjoyed it from start to finish. He enjoyed the Salmon Special over asparagus and artichoke hearts with a delicious glaze. I had the veal scallopini prepared Parmesan and the veal was so incredibly tender. The desserts-- if you can save room for them-- are to die for. The chocolate layer torte is memorable, as was the raspberry tiramisu. This was our second visit to this restaurant, but it won't be our last!

    The food was excellent as usual, but the service was not up to their normal standards. Several items had to be asked for- oil for the bread,anchovies for the Caesar salad,hot oil for the macaroni. Also tried to serve us our main course but had just started eating our pasta.

    My friend and I had a relaxed dinner on a Thursday evening. Quiet enough for catching up! Alia Familia has a wonderful neighborhood feel, full of regulars. Yet it is also a special occasion venue. We loved the filet mignon and sea bass, which were perfectly prepared and tender. Our server was attentive and friendly. Will be back!

    This is an all time favorite of mine. Every time I enjoy this restaurant, I am reminded of what fine dining means. The food is always excellent, the dining experience is always superior and this time, my husband who eats a vegan diet had an entire mini menu to choose from. Made our holiday season

    Our evening was memorable and delicious. We were seated upstairs in the bar area. Our waiter was polite but not intrusive. His suggestions were right on point. We have just returned from Paris and in truth this meal was by far better than anything we’d eaten there. We will certainly be recommending Alla Fiamiglia to our family and friends.

    First time experience but it will definitely not be our last. Absolutely one THE Best Restaurants!!! I’ve traveled extensively and can say this one is in my top ten list worldwide. Excellent Italian quisine. Wonderful wine book, but the staff is what made it even Mo memorable. We made a reservation about a week out and the only option was bar seating. That turned out be a great seat. Superb bartenders and very personable. I cannot wait to return!

    The veal scallopini served to us, was tough and full of grizzle. You would think that an Italian restaurant that presents a check at the end of the meal for two, without any alcohol, for $250.00 + tip, would provide a much better grade on veal. Conclusion: Very expensive for a very disappointing experience.
