Alex beamed from ear to ear and raised his thumb as he walked to the Italian restaurant, a popular celebrity spotting spot.

He showed off his still athletic figure in a black polo shirt and matching jeans.

The shortstop added some color to the casual ensemble with a set of blue Nike sneakers.

He blocked out the late afternoon sun with black sunglasses and added a gold luxury wristwatch for some extra flair.

Alex was taken to his solo dinner in a black shuttle.

Despite his infectious grin on the way to dinner, he had a stonier face as he ate his pasta outside.

Although the Yankees star is currently single, a source told The sun late in May that he had attempted to “connect” with Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy shortly after he and Jennifer ended their engagement.

In February, the reality star claimed that A-Rod had sent her direct messages on social media, though she said “he never physically cheated on his fiancée with me.”

But it was reported that Alex wanted to meet her in person at the PGA Championship in South Carolina last month.

A source told the publication that he chose the event because “he knew she would be there and he had friends there, so it was a good excuse to be in the same place.”

However, the source added that Madison was “completely over it” and she has said she currently has a boyfriend on Instagram.

Alex’s representative Ron Berkowitz denied the coverage in a statement to DailyMail.com.

“I’m not sure who wants to take advantage of these kinds of rumors and false stories. They are factually incorrect,” he claimed. “Alex is busy focusing on his businesses and his family.”

Jennifer seemed to be upbeat as her new relationship with Ben Affleck develops.

A source recently told People that the two are “incredibly happy” and “want to spend as much time as possible together.”

The actress and singer attended Windward School in Los Angeles on Thursday, suggesting she may be considering moving to the West Coast as she and Ben continue to grow closer.

He is determined to stay in Southern California to be close to the three children he shares with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, but Lopez mostly lives in Miami, where she lives with her twins Max and Emma, ​​13.

The two recently enjoyed a week-long trip to Montana, before spending time together at Lopez’s Miami home.

Before that, Ben had been spotted being chauffeured to Jennifer’s home in LA.

The actors first met in 2001 on the set of their box office bomb, Gigli, and made their relationship official the following year, shortly after Jennifer separated from her second husband.

They later got engaged in 2002 and planned their wedding for September 2003, but canceled it with just a few days notice.

Ben and Jennifer broke up in early 2004, but they reportedly remained friends after that, which may have helped them reconnect.
