Alfredo’s Italian Pizza Kitchen has been opened for a few months now and I have had the opportunity to dine there a few times. I have to say, it offers some great authentic italian foods and doesn’t break the bank! Its located right outside of town off of route 202 and 926, it’s very conveient if you want to escape the downtown West Chester rush every once in awhile. This new restaurant has an impressive heritage, Barb and husband, Alfredo, also own the upscale Alfredo Italian BYO in Berwyn. Alfredo’s Italian Pizza Kitchen is a BYOB, offers plenty of free parking and is open seven days from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Below is a video I produced of both Alfredo’s Italian Pizza Kitchen as well as there other establishment Alfredo Italian BYO located in Berwyn. I would recommend checking out both restaurants they are fantastic!
