Just went for an evening meal. Prosecco came with the cover, everything white and beige. Secluded corners. A romantic location which felt special at a normal price. We are still talking about the sharing-plate of fish starter.

Beautiful restaurant with a very warm welcome. Starters were excellent (photo). After so much fish at the starter I ordered a meat main and to be honest I had to force it down and eventually gave up it was not good at all . My wife had the fillet of groupper which was lovely. However she was charged €25 which... More

Although we weren't sure about the restaurant because it was recommended by a tourist representative on a cruise ship, our apprehensions quickly evaporated when we arrived. The restaurant is run by a husband and wife, who took care of the service attentively and quickly. My wife usually orders spaghetti ala vongole as a test dish and was very glad she... More

I was so happy to have dinner here. I absolutely hated the city...dirty, dark, everything grubby etc but this restaurant restored my otherwise terrible day. The restaurant is decorated in clean white and the waiters own the restaurant. When you have Italians owning a restraint and not packed with tourists you know you're going to have a good evening. The... More

One of our fellow cruisers had thoroughly researched the restaurants in Messina so I was pleased to hear that he too had settled on Alberto for lunch. It's a short walk from the famous clock tower where we went to see the astronomical clock do its thing at noon. We were probably seated by 12:30 and immediately the place started... More

Nice and discrete restaurant. Fantastic starters and delicious desserts. Great wine as well. Secondi piatti are very good but not excellent. Surely a place to reccomend where enjoy food and relax with some wine from a rich menu

Recently, we visited this great "ristorante" together w/ my family and it was a good choice, honestly! One of my local friend, Marco suggested us to try this place. The portions are good, the dishes are delicious, it's really a must-try category restaurant! Grazie! :)
