Sicilian American Executive Chef, Alessandro Fiorello, has masterfully created a unique dining experience in the heart of Wayne, PA and the Main Line. Alessandro’s features his vision of a modern touch on traditional southern Italian cuisine, which is paired beautifully with a rustic industrial space. Our extensive wine selection, of over 20 Italian red and white wines, has been hand-selected to complement the flavors of the menu offerings, which have a strong focus on sourcing local & seasonal ingredients. We strive to serve each guest as if they were invited into our own homes. It is truly an experience not to be missed.
Lovely, cozy spot. Came in on my birthday for a diversion, close to closing time, but that wasn't a problem. The host and bartender provided a welcoming atmosphere. Very cozy place, from the exposed brick wall and ceiling beams and a nice wine list, it was a welcoming stop. It really was a pleasant surprise.

Great atmosphere..casual..relaxed. Sat right down..even for a Saturday night. Started with calamari, perfect. Our entire party ordered something different and each raved on how good their dinners were. 4 bottles of wine and dessert.chocolate brownie topped with ice cream, cannoli and rice pudding. Portions were"spot" on. Staff was very friendly,even the owner came to tables to see how everything was. Highly recommend

I've had countless dinners at Alessandro's and it is fantastic every single time. Aside from regular dinners, I had both my rehearsal dinner and baby shower here and both events were perfect. The food is consistently fresh and delicious every single time and the staff is helpful, kind, and do a wonderful job. The restaurant space is beautiful and with both events our guests raved about the food, service and atmosphere. Special shout out to Maddy & Alessandro - thank you both for everything, you are the best!!

Aside from the great food, we really appreciated their ability to fit us in with no reservation on a busy Friday night. We arrived at 6:30 and they offered us a table as long as we finished before the 8pm reservation started. That was perfect for us! We were seated in 15 minutes, had quick service, and were out of there in an hour. The staff were so kind.
This intimate Italian restaurant has good wood-fired pizza and tasty pastas. It is worth the price (which isn’t bad depending on what you order!) They also have a selection of nice wines. Make a reservation ahead of time as the inside is small and will be full.

Recently visited for my husband's birthday. Chef A was kind and personable. Great vibe that welcomes you to relax and enjoy yourself. Calamari was amazing. The arugula salad with goat cheese was top notch. Our entrees were equally delicious. Great staff and atmosphere. We'll definitely be back!

We do takeout from here often (always delicious), and we went in to sit at the bar this evening for a couple of drinks. They were fantastic, and the bartender was lovely. We also really enjoyed the ambiance - it's very open and bright, and you can see quite a bit of the neighborhood from the bar. We can't wait to go back and have dinner. I tried the bone-in veal chop most recently (for take-out), and it was outstanding.

Dinner for 2 on a Sunday at 5pm and couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant experience. From the hostess to the chef who visited the table, everybody was as accommodating as could be. Food is excellent. Ribeye, veal & crabmeat, Scallops special appetizer, and the artichokes were all great. Even a kind gesture for our special occasion. Great atmosphere and a great team. Thanks.

Chef Alessandro is passionate about being creative with the food we prepare for our guests.
“My vision is to create an experience which is personalized to each guest, which captures the energy and culture of Philadelphia and Wayne, with the freshest and highest quality local ingredients. Our pizzas, whole fish, meats and fresh bread will be cooked in a wood fired oven.”
The oven, a Stefano Ferrara, was imported from Naples, Italy.
