Going there tonight to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary. Not only is the food wonderful, but the service is even better!

I was disappointed in the meal I ordered last week. I ordered angel hair pesto. There was no salad that went with the meal. I received a bland plate of angel hair pasta that I could have made myself with 5.00 worth of basil. I do not know who their chef is but he has absolutely no idea about food presentation. The cost was 17.00. Ridiculous! On top of everything else, there was a large party of women in the dining room. They were so loud we could not carry on a decent conversation. Needless to say we will not be going back to Alexanders again.

Hate winter. Just bought a quart of wedding soup and Italian bread- at least that inproved my mood. It was delicious. Maybe I'll get a quart every week during the winter.

Just had a great meal at Alexander's
Our server was young and very knowledgeable.I had a chicken and asparagus salad with pesto sauce(yummy. My friend had cavatelli tomfredo with spinach and burrata. We also took home wedding soup and a whole loaf of their great Italian bread.

Excellent experience with our server Jonathan. Made us feel welcome. Explained the menu in great detail. But what I admire almost is that such a young man has grasped the whole true concept of hospitality we will be back for sure. Thank you

I just had the most amazing meal last night. The four of us started with appetizers: fried zucchini, the lightly flowered spiral zucchini with the horseradish dipping sauce (new item) and bruschetta. Everything was perfectly cooked, nothing was soggy like most fried things I have at other restaurants and the sauce was great. We moved on to dinner: tortellini with the sweet red pepper sauce, mafalda Alexander, Abby Angel hair and chicken piccata. Everything was perfectly cooked and the chicken melted in your mouth. For desert, homemade tiramisu, homemade rice pudding and carrot cake. We met the bakers, Jim and Kelly, and they were as personable as their dishes. To finish, the cappachino made by the owner, Alexander Colaizzi himself, was perfectly brewed and as tart as espresso gets. Perfecto! Grazie mille!

Today we had an early dinner at Alexanders. My father was recently given an antibiotic that caused severe neuropathy. He has limited use of his hands, arms and legs and has to use an extra wide wheelchair to get around. Picking a place to eat now comes with challenges and questions for accommodations. The server went above and beyond to help us from the moment she saw us struggling to get in to the very last minute when we left the restaurant. She opened doors, made sure we were able to sit at the table he wanted, moved his plates around when she saw he needed help, suggested he use a different bathroom to make it easier on us, and the list goes on...
My parents have been here many times throughout the years and the food has always brought them back. Not only do they have amazing food, we also learned today they also have the most kind hearted staff. Thank you for helping our family have a very lovely experience!

Loved the goat cheese ravioli with pesto and spinach. Had to take my tiramisu to go because I was so full and happy.

Drove 80 miles to get there. Took my girlfriend there for her Birthday today.We had the Wild Mushroom Ravioli, it was excellant as normal. The entire staff was professional and wonderful. Fine example of how a business should be, thank you was the best Birthday she has had,and you were a big part of making it great.

Our first visit and we loved it! Large portions, very tasty and fresh bread.
We had chicken Parma and veal and it was fresh and delicious! I'd highly recommend. If your looking for a newer trendy place this is not what your looking for. It's an older bar/restaurant, a large bar with a small outdoor patio and dining area with tables and booth seating. We will be back!

We visit Pittsburgh every other year for Steelers games and we always make sure we come to Alexanders for dinner. Sausage and Peppers appy is to die for. Dessert is always made with extra goodness.

Almost exactly 1 year to the day, I wrote last year on 04/17/2012; I had a doctors appointment right down the street and the report was good. We decided to celebrate a little and the bistro looked great with the added enjoyment of fine weather and outdoor dinning. Every selection was excellent; from the wine to soup to salad to our main meal, all delicious! Kudos to Alexanders. Portions were great and all moderatley priced. A beautiful afternoon. Ditto again for this year, 04/16/2013. A special thank you to Chrissie. This years service was exceptional.

We meet friends regularly at Alexander's for dinner. We can't say enough about the treatment that we receive! We are remembered as if we're visiting someone's home. Jeff, Jim & Alex are outstanding. Each dish that we have tried has been wonderful. Looking forward to our next visit!
