This restaurant has such a great vibe And so much potential but unfortunately inexperienced staff, being told because there was only 2 of us the table was only for 1 and a half hours was disappointing.
The pizza we had was great except The flavours amazing but I u fortunately the base of the pizza was so hard and thin you couldn’t cut it .
To say disappointing is an understatement
I think we have found our new local! What a great experience we had. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, wine & service
Alphington social is an awesome place to dine. The staff are amazingly welcoming. Sensational food from Cicchetti to Dolce. Great drink selection with a couple of great craft beers on tap. The decor rounds off a fantastic place to dine. Highly recommend.
Great local bar/restaurant. Friendly staff/atmosphere. We brought along two friends this time who had not been before and they also enjoyed the afternoon. We will return and so will they.
This is a little gem hidden away in a quiet corner of Alphington. The food is first rate, the prices were a nice suprise and I could not fault the staff. We'll be back.
Bustling, great staff/service good atmosphere
Everything here is always perfect. We love it.
The food is amazing. The service is always spot on and the ambience is great. It's the perfect local.
It's also the closest thing to a great Italian local ristorante. Makes me nostalgic for our other home.
Staff showed a lack of concern for our requests. Fly discovered walking on one of our knives. Requested a replacement knife which done with a cursory apology.
Food was tasteless and very average.
We had been assured via a phone call before our dinner that our request for a separate table (not communal) would be granted. This didn’t happen. Told by the waitress that the iPad ‘throws around’ the seating so it was impossible to move us from the communal table.
This is a pretentious restaurant that doesn’t respect its diners.
Friendly and efficient service, delicious food and drinks (recommend the watermelon cocktail!)
All excellent value for money.
Cool spot in a local neighbourhood. Nice selection of spirits and very nice offering of pizza
Delicious food and cocktails. Feed me menu is a great way to try lots on the menu and was very filling, we could not eat it all.
Had a lovely first experience and already planning to return.
A wonderful dining experience. Just a bit noisy at the beginning of the evening
Introduced my parents to the A.S. & they are now big fans also. Keep doing what you are doing & we will be loyal customers for years to come.
Great food, friendly service. Two sittings and being rushed out as a result because we had the early booking, was the only thing that wasn’t great, but I would still go back
Our second visit and the first for our friends. Once again we were really taken with the whole experience, this time for lunch. Our friends were also seriously impressed and and we all had great time. Will be back again soon.
Great venue food was fantastic very friendly staff
Wonderful vibe, great selection of cocktails & drinks and beautiful food to match.
A nice relaxing place with a lovely beer garden for casual drinks and catch up.
Just getting to know the venue, pizza and flat bread was amazing. Great service and food and drink selection.
Lovely evening- great staff
We were greeted by one owner making Pizza who was professional welcoming and genuine.
We thought how lovely this will be good being old patrons of the rest prior. We sat down asked the waitress to put down the music please a little loud we couldn't hear each the speak - her response was she will ask but the owner won't as she never does - REALLY !!!! The gentleman's partner his sister as we were told should not work in hospitality not obliging nor friendly at all. People are your business maybe should look at your attitude
Our table of 6 loved Alphington Social. So lucky that we live close - we’ll be regulars for sure!!
Great food, drinks, staff in a funky environment.
Amazing food & excellent service. Small round tables are not practical for a group. Noise level doesn’t make conversation easy.
4 stars overall - cannot fault the service, everyone was exceptionally lovely and the venue is fantastic.
Food was really good with the exception of one item - The Caprese pizza - cannot recommend, it came out with cold cheese and tomato on it, I'm sure this was the chef's intent but it was just really odd and not enjoyable. A poor choice on my behalf but this certainly won't stop us going back. The arancini were to die for and the cocktails were delicious.
Really tasty food, good service, reasonable price. The fit-out was nice, especially the beautifully presented cheese fridge
We had a great experience at Alphington Social. Great sharing plates and pizza combined with some great coctail and wine selections. Will be back
From the moment of booking to being greeted on arrival my experience was very good. The venue didn't have many patrons so service was also very good. One of my guests meals was not cooked and the staff responded appropriately. A new meal was presented, with apologies, and to her satisfaction.
Will visit again.
A great addition to the local scene. Great drinks, fabulous pizza and friendly staff.
Had Sunday lunch and had a wonderful time. Food was fabulous.
Ambience is fun and I love the decor.
Service is spot on...as one would expect from the brilliant folk from Mr. Wednesday.
will definitely be back many times <3
Great service and excellent food.
All of our entrees and meals were very tasty. A word of warning to anyway ordering the lamb shoulder to share (for 2), make sure you are very, very hungry or make sure you take the incredible lamb home for sandwiches the next day.
Really friendly and attentive service. The place is buzzing and is ideal for groups
We will be back
Very limited serving of actual gnocchi in the main, it's disappointing for almost $30 per serve for pasta.
The taste was lovely but it would be been better welcomed with a serving that reflected value for money.
The tomato sauce on the pizza was a bit bland too, it was ok but not as fresh and fragrant as some neighboring competitors like Pizza Farro, Woodfire Ivanhoe and Il Borgho
Did not appreciate being told that the table was required at 7pm- we booked for 5.30pm. Also if we had booked for 6pm that the table was still required at 7pm for a further booking. Would need to think twice before rebooking
We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and drinks at dinner on Sunday night. The share plates were huge! I was surprised at how few people were there. We were served well by the staff members. Everyone was calm and happy. The open fireplace was great for added warmth. We were very sorry to find out they weren't making the fantastic "Burning Benjamin" drink anymore!! All together, a very enjoyable night.
Great place. Better than expected. Lots of choices at reasonable prices
Delicious, hand made, authentic Italian style food. Beautifully styled venue with peasant and attentive staff. Bravo.
Great, yummy food. Great service super friendly. Love that they have a bar you can have a drink before dinner. Food is really good, great place for a special occasion dinner or just a catch up with friends. Love that they've opened up in our area. We'll be back.
Very enjoyable place for interesting food and drinks. A noisy place with lots of staff members who are all very friendly, even when they might muck things up a little!! We really enjoyed our first visit here.
Delicious pizzas and great Gin and Tonics! Will be back for more!
