    Food and service was excellent! I wish we didn't have to stand and wait to be seated until everyone arrived, especially since my partner had just recovered from being sick and was feeling weak. But otherwise, loved it and will be back.

    Ambiance dark, lively (noisy), charming, casual in a nice way. Service was excellent….very attentive. Daughter and I had toasted focaccia with the Tuscan butter, clams pasta, suckling pig, plain sautéed spinach, budino. Still not sure what the Tuscan butter was….would have preferred plain butter. Pasta was VERY al dente which we didn’t care for. But the flavor was great. Portion size medium. If you order just that, you would need something else. The pig was sold as crunchy chewy but we were pleasantly surprised with crunchy crispy. So good….Yum!! Portion was very generous. Plain spinach surprisingly flavorful. Budino ok. I definitely would come back!

    The risotto balls and stone fruit and prosciutto appetizers were outstanding. Pizza, we had the potato one, delicious as ever. Very filling. And the spinach lasagna was tasty and hearty. Service is minimalist and yet outstanding. We will be back!

    Great food! Be prepared they do add a 10% service fee which is not a tip in any way. This is strictly to support staff benefits & a livable wage. We had the focaccia, the fried risotto, cacio e Pepe & the sausage pizza all of it was divine! Even a great selection of wine by the glass. 10/10 would go back!

    Always happy to pop in here for a delicious bite. We're huge fans of the way they do Cacio e Pepe and that's usually what draws us in. The mortadella with fresh bread is an unlikely app for us and also a must. Last night we shared the swordfish special too. It was topped with a perfect amount of fresh herbs in a gremolata sauce. Of course, we had a 1/2 carafe of wine, Thye always have interesting selections

    Food was delicious and highlighted fresh ingredients with the session. Service was excellent. The only part of the dining experience that created unease was the “Dining In Charge,” a 10% fee with a postcard delivered with the check explaining its purpose. All for leaving gratuity for a wonderful experience, but is 20% on top of 10% appropriate or if we leave 10% is this shortchanging what our server would otherwise receive for their efforts?

    Our server(s) were attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious. My old knock is the park keys are very cold at night. With wind the heaters were mostly ineffective. Having blankets would have been great. Lol. Would highly recommend. Now we want to go to the other restaurant of David’s. Thank you. It was worth 15 minutes trying to park 🤪

    I came for the Reeve wine event. The food was great as were the wines, but they never listed the prices on the Reeve wines and when the bill came they were $35 for a flight and $30 for a glass. When you’re pouring wines that are this expensive you should let people know first.

    We love Alimentari. Quality and food options are great. What’s a difference maker is their friendly service and knowledge of their cuisine. So happy they survived the pandemic. Can’t wait to go back. We sat at the end of the bar and had front row seats to a dynamic kitchen.

    We were a group of six for a family dinner celebration. All our food selections were delicious and our server happily facilitated the sharing of all the courses. There were sufficient items to select from for each course on the menu and the tables were well spaced out around the dinning room. Wine list had a wide selection of choices both domestic and Italian and our server helped us make a selection which complimented our food selections. Servers were friendly and informative and food came out quickly and we did not feel rushed. Some of us had been here before and all agreed we would come again. All in all a wonderful dining experience.

    Usually love Alimentari. This time it wasn't great. New menu items - Vongole was a little sandy. Bigger issue with service. 1. Had to find parking but wouldn't seat my date so they stood in the doorway for quite a long time. 2. Host asked 3 times for the name on our reservation? Were they listening? didn't seem like it my name is not unusual. 4. Sat at the counter when other tables were available. (not a huge issue) 5. Sat a woman with a dog next to us - but failed to ask whether or not we were allergic to dogs. Also DOGs are unhygienic. WTF. 6. Since our seat was quite close to the door would have been nice if the door was closed. It was quite cold towards the end of the meal. Usually the place and the service is great. This was an off night.

    The host always seems to be snooty, and the service rushed - but you’ll continue to come back because the food is literally incredible. Rich in creams and carbs there’s not much you will go wrong with on the menu. The seasonal pizzas are always the star of the show. Also don’t sleep on their extensive selection of Italian wines.

    This was our first time at Che Fico Alimentari and boy was it a treat! We really enjoyed the food and enjoyed watching it being prepared while sitting at the counter. This place is known for their pasta and pizza but we had the suckling pork and lamb. The portions were big and satisfying and the price point was reasonable for the portions. We also enjoyed the risotto balls and the warm focaccia. The decor was modern yet a mixture of old Italian restaurant decor. They keep it dark and cozy. Great place for a date. The waite staff was friendly and knowledgeable and totally no overbearing. Great experience! We will be back soon to try the pasta, pizza, and the octopus starter.

    I love this place but the dishes were staggered improperly as we waited a long time between the first course and the second and then the third showed up at the same time as the second. This was after being told to order everything at once so the kitchen could time it right. Otherwise, I was very happy with the service, the food and the wine. Staff was friendly and knowledgable, a little pricey but what isn't these days?

    We had a lovely dinner at Che Fico. We ordered the burrata and prosciutto appetizer, the boar pappardelle, a pizza with olives and anchovies, asparagus, and a rhubarb crostada for the 4 of us. The food was very high quality and tasted like one would get in Italy - silky burrata, tender boar with the pappardelle, and delicious crust on the pizza. The asparagus were fat and tasty. The food came out quickly , was the right temperature, and delicious. Our server was friendly and professional. Our reservation was for 7:15 and they seated us right away. We were out the door by 8:45. The price was a bit high, but it was a special occasion for us so it was fine. (Like other diners, we found the extra 10% surcharge is a bit annoying)
