Raff and his team always do a great job. Been coming to Alfresco every time we visit Surfers Paradise over the past 30 years and have never been disappointed. Fantastic food and service. Thoroughly recommend it.

We were warmly welcomed by Raff who set the tone for excellent service from all of the staff. There are 2 sections which they try and fill in sequence. If you are early there is therefore a choice between noisy & packed or less busy and quiet in the alternative section.
The food is standard Italian pizza and pasta fare, which arrives quickly after ordering. It's BYO too which is good as it keeps the cost down for families & groups, although the wines aren't too expensive.
The food prices are probably a bit high for the standard offered, however, the pasta mains were generous helpings.

When you plan the national anthem at a birthday party. Pretty cringe.


Pizza and bollanse could use some more additions. Humus etc. Less cheese.

Kids were greeted with Italian themed colouring page & pencils - which was great for keeping them busy while waiting for the food. Wait staff were friendly & attentive. Gnocchi was delicious, salad fresh, as for the pizza, was disappointed that shredded ham was used instead of fresh shaved leg ham (reminds me of la porchetta pizza (cheap pizza chain in Melb)). Kids' 2 scoop of ice-cream was very generous but the creme brûlée had some issues, was soft on top but bottom either didn't set properly or it had curdled-there were noticeable lumps & the caramel was on the flavourless side.
