“We’re unique because we’re not a corporate,” chef and associate owner Gerardo Reyes said. “We’re individually owned so we can do whatever we want.”
While the restaurant provides a formal atmosphere, Reyes said casual dress is acceptable. We want customers to come in casual dress but still have a nice table, he said, adding that lunch and dinner are served at Chef Alfredo’s.
The menu consists of soup and salad options, chicken dishes, veal, a daily fish and customer favorite pasta dishes with prices ranging from $12 to $20. There is also a wine menu available as well as other beverages. Specials consist of salmon, filet mignon, sea bass and more.
Reyes has an extensive resume as a chef beginning at age 14 when he worked in an Italian restaurant kitchen in New Jersey making pastries. At age 17 he worked as a steakhouse chef and by age 21 he became a corporate chef. He later moved to Las Vegas where he met and began working with the Alfredo for whom the restaurant is named. His association with Alfredo led him to his current position in Cedar City.
Reyes said his promise to the city is that he will come out to the tables to check on customers and ensure all dishes are satisfactory.
“That’s the only way we’ll stay in business,” he said.
Co-owner Alfredo owns and operates another Italian restaurant in St. George, Piccolo Mondo, that has been open nearly three years.
