If you're in Midtown Manhattan by Rockefeller Center, my favorite dishes to order at Alfredo of Rome are the following:

For appetizer, or main course for lunch accompanied with a Caesar salad on the side, I highly recommend their super thin slice pizza with paper thin slices of pears, Gorgonzola cheese and truffles.

You can serve this pizza as an appetizer for up to 6 people; or you can have it as your main course (because I love it) with a salad on the side.

You have to order their Alfredo Fettuccine.  After all, THIS is a signature dish.  The recipe came from Rome.
It's the best Alfredo Fettuccine I've ever had.

Pictured on the right is a dessert from their menu that I've never tasted elsewhere.
Please try this.
It's called Fennel Tart drizzled with chocolate and caramel sauce, served with Sambucca ice cream on the side.

(Fennel is in the anise family)
I happen to love fennel in my salad or with pork.
This pastry has lots of sweet fennel inside.  I think it's a healthy dessert!
(That's me)
Fennel is crunchy and slightly sweet, adding a refreshing contribution to the ever popular Mediterranean cuisine. Most often associated with Italian cooking ... 
This Tiramisu is soooo good!  It's addictive.  It's one tiramisu I love!
