This Italian restaurant/sports bar strikes out with mediocre menu items. – The Scene
Located in a strip mall on busy Highland Drive, Alachi's is part sports bar, part Italian restaurant. The main dining area features a somewhat odd mix of sports paraphernalia and unusual decor (a hockey poster alongside a Roman statue?) with a smattering of televisions tuned to sports.
While Alachi's staff is personable and attentive, the food can be disappointing. A recent grilled chicken breast lunch special was tough and under-seasoned. And the bland eggplant parmesan doesn't fare much better, especially if it's not heated through. But the side vegetables are nicely seasoned and fresh tasting, as is the accompanying bread.
Sports grill??? – I was really hoping for the best when I went to Alachi's on a recent Friday night. How could it not be good? An ITALIAN SPORTS GRILL!! Cold beer, big tvs, lots of sports, great food! In my dreams. The place looked like an old Chinese restaurant with servers who were so disinterested you needed a mirror under their nose to test them for life. A bar with no merlot or cabernet and a server who apparently couldn't add either. (I was overcharged by $15 for a $40 ticket!) The place looked like a Fellini movie - weird statues, a shark tank(??), white tablecloths, tvs not showing any sports, a bartender who claimed to be a wine expert, but didn't know what a pinot noir was and waitresses who probably got canned from Hooters. I was embarrased for these people. Do yourself a favor and avoid Alachi's.
