Alfonso's Pizza

(407) 816-1743
 4718 South Orange Ave.
Orlando,FL 32806



The "Original" Alfonso's is back in business.

For those of you unfamiliar with Alfonso's, they use to be located in the College Park neighborhood. It was quite the spot for great pies and good times with friends.They also had quite the recognition as one of the best pizza places in Central Florida as well. 

A few years ago owner Rich Alfonso decided to sell his business and a place called Ragazzi'ss appeared in its place.

The guy who use to work at Alfonso's now owns Ragazzi's. They have a decent pie too, so I'm told.

Anyways.. long story short, Rich Alfonso has decided to reopen the pizza and sportsbar named after himself.

The location on south Orange Avenue use to be a Blackwater BBQ location. 


Aside from some flat screen TVs and a few neon signs inside, the decor is not much different from Blackwater BBQ.




Alfonso's has kept the original picnic tables and the tin coverings on the bar as well in the kitchen area.

I like the picnic tables as it gives for a more open atmosphere. There are a few tables outside as well. (note-smoking is permitted outside)

 As always, Alfonso's is a great spot to go to after work on a Friday night and have a few cold beers.

They don't have a large selection here, but you will find all the basic beer selections along with a full service bar.



Alfonso's is known for Pizza, but they have a few other things that are pretty good.

There is a decent sandwich and wrap section on the menu along with Italian pasta dishes and the famous "Garlic Knots".

Before we got our pie, we tried an order of the kickin hot wings. They were fried perfectly and actually were tasty as well as being very hot.


The pizza we had was very good. It came with ample toppings and was cooked very well.

I will say the crust could have been a bit more cracker like, but overall it was not too thick, and not too thin.


We certainly enjoyed our Friday night at Alfonso's. The servers were very friendly and they had a pretty good crowd. Most of the patrons that night were talking about the old Alfonso's and were happy they were back in business.

Good food, great times and a fun atmosphere just like the old Alfonso's.

Tastes of Orlando recommends you give them a try!
