Alina's is a small quaint ristorante but I get the feeling that they consider themselves a 5 star eatery with elegant surroundings which is a little overly gracious if not downright laughable. Location isn't very good in the center of town with parking on main street with a used tv repair place, laundramat, and a bar with patrons smoking outside on the sidewalk. All of the above are nothing I would even think of when going out to grab a bite however the way Alina's portrays their establishment I wouldn't imagine passing through a crowd of drunk teenagers, and then 2 local farmers arguing over who is most sober to drive home. 

Then since they have limited hours of operation i've stopped in because I just got the urge to have a nice meal forgetting they were not open and could only imagine how I would feel if I just drove from Northampton, Greenfield or further like Holyoke, Springfield, East Longmeadow ect which is the type of clientele they seem to direct marketing at. Then to add a little difficulty to the obstacle course if you can get there when their open, you have the money to pay 50%-75% more then what typically the food should cost and maybe even more when you factor in that it's SOUTH DEERFIELD, don't mind the Russian Roulette Waiter game where your either going to find someone you'd be happy to introduce your single children to or someone that you can't figure out why an upscale restaurante would be hiring people whose personality is so bland white walls in the bedroom seem really exciting when you get home well that's the problem though.... 

The wine selection is one of the best parts of Alina's. They really seem to know which wine's/types go well with each food. Back to the problem though, remember how I said you can park right on main street out front of Alina's? Well, so can the police. They typically watch the bar that's a feet down the street and then the other bar called the Hotel Warren which is on the other side. But watch your wine because the DPD doesn't mess around with "warnings" Have that 3rd glass with a glass of water and a little food in between or the young guns trying to make up for all that high school abuse will show you who's the boss now!
