    Our service was exceptional last night. The food presentation was top notch and the presentation was suburb. The main meal portions were surprisingly large. I cannot express how attentive, professional and knowledgeable the service was. We will be back and we will be telling all who we interact with.

    I must say that this meal was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. The pizza and steak we had we’re excellent. I’ve never had a steak recently that was cooked perfect and melted in your mouth with tons of flavour. The service was excellent overall. I will definitely be going back for other meals in the future and will tell my friends about this restaurant for sure.

    We went to Alena for our 20th wedding anniversary. Service was great, Greg(manager) was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Recommendations were great! We had ordered tasty appies and the entrée were good too. They enjoy gave us 2 complimentary champagne to help celebrate the occasion, we couldn't finish our bottle of wine, so ended up taking rest home. Overall from ambience to service and food, I would recommend Alena for Italian food! Thank you, we had an amazing experience.

    Went for the 1st time and was really impressed. We sat on the pub/breakfast/dessert side. Everything was just lovely and the food was great. I did find $13 dollars a cocktail a bit high but they were delicious. Great for meeting friends/family or a date night.

    We were a party of four. Two were in town from Connecticut and I have Celiac Disease. Alena’s did Winnipeg proud. We were all raving about our dinner. The server was exceptional and the food outstanding. And they took special care with my food sensitivities. Thanks so much, Alena’s, for a wonderful evening.

    Shared the garlic knots, calamari, eggplant Parmesan, and the spaghetti and meatballs. All dishes were outstanding and are highly recommended. The restaurant was busy and noise levels were up but not overwhelming the staff were professional and were hustling to provide great service. Thankful that this gem of a restaurant seems to be doing very well, and as it should with some great Italian food being served.

    This was our first dining experience at Alena's and we were very impressed. The atmosphere was cozy and quiet and the food was great. Nice to have a menu that is not overwhelming. Nice to do fewer things better. And the service was very good as we were quickly greeted upon arrival (and our server was very knowledgeable). Thank you for helping us to celebrate a very special occasion. We will be back.

    Date with my beautiful bride of 50 years in August. Alena’s and Chef Michael Dacquisto is always a tremendous experience. Nice bottle of red wine, seafood pasta special, chicken pappardelle pasta, shared caesar salad, tea and an Americano coffee to finish off with Italian donuts - Zeppole with vanilla custard.

    Was looking forward to trying out the restaurant after seeing a great review prior to start of covid. Was quite disappointed in the food but not sure if it was an off night as it was during the week and there were very few customers. However, the pasta was was extremely el dente to the point of being called rubbery and the pizza was very disappointing - the crust was so thin that the grease from the toppings made the crust soggy - we couldn't even lift the pieces of pizza - had to use fork and knife or fold the pizza in half. The toppings themselves were quite good - so not sure if it was an off day on the crust as had heard from someone else the pizza was supposed to be fantastic. We were a party of 6 and we all experienced the same issues with our pizza's and pasta so based on our experience we would not return again. (Staff were friendly, atmosphere was great...food not so much)

    It was one of the best meals I have ever had. We had the 32 oz porterhouse (bistecca). It was cooked perfectly and delicious. Our family of four shared it. We also had the calamari which was awesome. It was so crisp and tender. We also shared desserts (zeppole and tiramisu). It was our first time at the restaurant. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. We are looking forward to our next visit. I highly recommend it.

    Alena is just what Charleswood needs - an inspired menu that offers a good selection of quality appetizers and main dishes. Pastas and porchetta were extremely good and service was attentive without being intrusive or annoying.

    Server didn’t explain menu features, didn’t use flutes to serve the bubbly, and certainly didn’t seem too concerned about our satisfaction.

    Excellent service, as always!! Great food! We had three different pasta dishes, 1 pizza and all had an incredible Caesar salad to start. We ended off the night with the Burnt cheesecake which was superb. Food was exceptionally good this particular night- maybe because a chef Daquisto was there himself!

    Brian, Brian, Brian, you are the waiter of the year and an example of which all other waiters need to emulate. You’ve taken care of me and my daughter Picabo on many occasions. I’m just a retired soldier on a pension and you’ve treated us like VIP’s every time we’ve visited the restaurant. The serving staff are highly professional and have a great understanding of the food and wine menu. The chefs consistently provide outstanding food and can modify your requests to meet your needs. I highly recommend this restaurant.
