Food

The food at Cafe Alfresco is surprisingly refreshing. The wood-fired pizzas are quite good, and the other menu items always have a good bit of flavor to them. Grab a scoop of Gelato even if you're not going to eat there. Food Review: A-

Atmosphere

The small, slightly elevated dining area is located between the gaming tables and the buffet. It feels separated from the rest of the floor, although it gives you a good view. Because the entrance is right on a main walkway, standing in line for seating can be unpleasant. Atmosphere Review: B-

Service

Typical lunch-grade table service, and the quality of your experience will often be defined by the attentiveness of your server. Fortunately, since the area is small, the servers can't easily disappear, although they are often slower than you would expect them to be. Service Review: B-

Value

Good food, nice place to sit, but the price always seems a few dollars more than it should be. Most plates are $9 to $12 when we'd like to see a little more value in our lunches. Value Review: C+
