Sorry, we don't have food suggestions for this restaurant.
Been going to Aliotos for years. Unfortunately it has been sliding downhill for the past year. Tonight the food was fine. It usually is, but the service was horrendous. Tonight was the worst. There is usually one waitress who is good and one who is not so good. Tonight was one good, one awful. She got our drinks fairly quickly and then spent the rest of the evening sitting with her friends at another table. We couldn't place our order. We couldn't get refills. We couldn't get our check. If you go there and a large (tall and wide) woman with a mop of black hair is your waitress, do yourself a favor and leave!. I miss the old staff.
Every neighborhood needs a great pizza place/restaurant/bar, and this is that place for Etna & Shaler. Pizza, wings, burgers, etc. are all great, and nothing is overpriced, especially if you get it on special. Bar selection is a bit limited, though, so I have to knock off a star; beer & especially wine are limited to primarily domestic fare.
Went there often for pizza. It tastes good, but they always have flies! Even when it was snowing last year the place was full of flies. When I found a dead fly in my salad, that was my last day. They didn't seemed concerned at all about it. I have never saw anyone try to control the flies in any fashion. The same day I saw them let a person back in who the day before got so drunk he puked all over the bar where people were eating.. He had been standing there gagging from too much beer and belching, and they let him continue to drink until he puked. It was massive and awful! He made no effort to clean it up. Then they let him back to drink at the bar the next day. This place is nasty!
Seriously amazing pizza. And amazing calazones. We always get takeout, so I can't speak for the dining experience.
Love this place!! I order from them at least once a week! Food is always delivered quick, service is great and friendly, food is always delicious!! Great variety of food, something for everyone!!
I live locally, so eating here is very convenient. The Italian dishes are very good, portions are generous and I've never been disappointed with the tasty sauces. I usually sit at the bar and order carry out or dine in for a special. Overall pleased with the service and attention given. I'm surprised after reading these reviews to see that some folks don't like their pizza. I think they serve some of the best pie in town. They also have some great features, like half price burger night, pizza specials and $3 gyro's on Saturday.
Good pizza, decent prices, lousy staff. I've never sat at the bar, I've only done take-out and dine-in. The pizza is very good, though sometimes it's a bit greasy, which I personally don't mind, I just dab at it with a paper towel. My advice: DO NOT SIT. I've sat in the dining area 3 times over the last 6 months and every time THE TABLE SERVICE HAS BEEN AWFUL-- I've had to wait to get a server's attention, I've had to ask for items two or three times, and the last time I was there, 2 servers sat at the empty table next to me to do some side work, eat their own food, and bitch about how tired they were. I realize they're human too, but as a customer, I'm there to be waited on and enjoy my meal, not listen to the staff whine and moan. DO NOT EXPECT *ANYTHING* FROM THEM IN THE WAY OF CUSTOMER SERVICE AND JUST GET TAKE OUT FROM THE CURT PEOPLE BEHIND THE COUNTER. If they manage to be pleasant to you, consider yourself lucky that day/night.
This is a classic hole in the wall with a lot of character. It's a mix of Italian and bar type foods but there's almost always a special going on. It's a cheap eats place that usually even has a coupon in the local circulars. Overall the food is average-good. Lots of TVs make it a good place to watch a game with drink specials usually going on too.
Usually a place that i like to order from..close to home good food..and usually fast service...i put an order in tonight at 745...2hrs later...no food..i called afyer the hour mark and was told all deliveries went out...at the hour and half mark was told there was a mix up in the kitchen food will be there in 10 minutes..20 minutes later my food shows up probably cold from sitting around and then still asked to pay the 30 some dollar bill...well my time is worth more then that let alone seems like they didnt even care....i guess aliotos didnt appreciate my business or any of my friends
Not sure what's dirtier , the place it self or the people that work in it. Ordered a take out Pizza. When to use the bathroom , guy walks out of the toilet stall and not even slow down at the sink to wash his hands. I thought okay some people just don't have good hygiene. I came out and low and behold he was behind the counter making a pizza. No thanks.
Pizza, Pizza! This is a brief review. I stopped to pick up a pizza pie on my way home. The place appeared to be a busy pizza making factory with a restaurant on one side. The restaurant was very quiet but there was a bar in the back with many locals hanging out have beers. The pizza was good but not great. I will try it again. Atmosphere - It seemed to have a good vibe by the bar but many were locals. The tables were mostly empty. Price - $10-20 for a pizza depending the craziness.
The Italian Hoagie, the Italian Hoagie Pie (get this!), the Carbonara and the Alioto Burger are my favorites. All are super tasty and I highly recommend trying. It's also a nice place to watch a game, have an easy family get-together, and it's kid-friendly too.
The only reason I went with four instead of five stars is because their pizza is just meh. Everything else is always great: chicken parm hoagie, gnocchi, any of the appetizers. They deliver to my house and it's always faster than expected and always hot.
Alioto's is a good neighborhood joint I have been to twice now. The fish sandwich is giant, the burgers are ok and I really liked the gyro. Service is fast and attentive. I would recommend staying away from the Italian as it was a bit of a letdown for one fellow patron (they got the eggplant parm) but I did have a bite of a meatball that was pretty appealing. Decent choice and the best in a small neighborhood.
My family loves their pizza & calzones! Dough, sauce, cheese & fresh ingredients can't be beat. My fav pizza shop. Friendly employees & fast service! Gave 4 stars only because they screw my order up periodically when ordering by phone. They always fix it tho & make good on it by delivering a new one for free or the next visit.
We just moved to the area and tried this place and we were so disappointed the pizza was aweful and the salad I had was soggy and I found a black hair in it which made me loose my appetite we probably will not be ordering from aliotos ever again
Wing special Wednesday. Karen likes Black and Gold wings and I stay true to hot. Good wings. Also had a large pepperoni pizza. Very good right out if the oven.
Pizza is terrific, perfect combination of sauce, cheese and toppings. Beer is real cheap and bar is non smoking. Haven't eaten much other than pizza. Not impressed with hoagies, but i'll stick with getting their pizza and beer. Defiantly will return/
My place of being! Food is the best! Come check it out...you will not be disappointed.bring the family.
