Michelin 2 star
This is a great place, really good food, fantastic service. The dish that really stood out was the beef filet wrapped in cheese with herbs and bread crumbs. Maybe the best piece of filet of my life. It was so good. Everything was wonderful and inventive, service impeccable and very friendly staff. Got to meet the owner and the chef (the owner’s brother) and had a tour of the wine cellar, which is very cool. I didn't go down to the cheese cellar (the spiral staircase at the bottom of the wine cellar), just stopped at the top of that stairway, but I regret not doing it now. We had the small tasting menu and still left stuffed.
We have been coming to Don Alfonso each summer - covid years excepted - for many years now and it never gets old. The focus on using high quality, local - and in the case of most of the fruit and vegetables - and homegrown produce never falters. Each year some new dishes find their way on to the menu alongside the classics so you really can enjoy the new alongside the old.
The hospitality is always the same, warm and welcoming. The family are omnipresent and take care of each and every one of their guests to ensure that they have a memorable dining experience.
It really is the essence of Campania in all aspects - summer just isn't the same without the generous hospitality and delicious dishes of Don Alfonso.
