Alfie's in Warren surprises with a delightful Italian Aura...

Because my friends, Barbara and Jim, were so excited about this restaurant, I had to see what Alfie's was all about.  And so, on a cold weeknight, my dining companion, Tony, and I joined them there for dinner.

I was surprised at how busy it was.  I was told this is normal (so make reservations).  This is not your average BYO.  It is sleek and sophisticated with huge windows, a nice bar area and white-clothed tables.

The menu is extensive and offers interesting choices.  We started with a refreshingly new take on calamari, served with cherry peppers and Italian hot sausage in a balsamic reduction.  Beef Carpaccio was perfect with truffle oil and shaved parmesan cheese.  We also enjoyed the baked little neck clams.  I think of all the entrees, my favorite was Jim's linguine with white clam sauce. 

I normally would not be inclined to order this dish, but when i go back, it will be my first choice.  The sauce is thick and rich and benefited from a liberal sprinkling of pepper.  The whole marinated free-range chicken is flattened and grilled and makes a very nice presentation, not to mention great flavor.  Alfie's is co-owned by the former manager and chef of Sestri's in Gillette.  This new venue is perfect to continue his tried-and-true tradition of great food and service.
