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! :)

I'd like to thank all those who have eaten here previously for their valuable reviews. More and more am I relying on these Tripadvisor reviews as I travel around Italy for work. Once again the reviews were spot on. First impressions were excellent even though I arrived relatively early for Sicily Alberto was most welcoming and immediately brought me an... More

This restaurant is a few streets back from the main shopping area. As you enter the proprietor is often there to greet you. When taken into the restaurant it is a bit like a large dining room in a house with white tablecloths and chair covers. The menu is extensive and very different with the owner Alberto being able to... More

We just tried Alberto’s today based on the feedback and rating on TripAdvisor. It was Great!!! We are at the end of a 14 day sailing charter around northern Italy and we have eaten at some great places; however none compare to Alberto’s. We ordered a number of appetizers, dishes and desserts as well as wine. On each they managed... More

The food was simply amazing. I hope I will have the chance to visit this place again someday. The best I had in Italy.

All of the dishes we ordered were excellent, but I have to reserve a special chapter to the lobster linguini. Definitely reccomend to anybody who visits messina. The athmosphere is not the best but the food is worth visiting.

Food was fantastic, the best we have has in Italy so far (which is hard for me to say because I am Calabrese!!) the service was 12 out of 10! Complimentary glass of presecco on arrival, which was beautiful! Complimentary cannoli which were... More

Due to my terrible Italian, we arrived in Messina 4 hours early for a boat to Stromboli (having read the timetable incorrectly). It was baking hot and I was a in a foul mood - Messina's port is not very picturesque! We headed to Alberto having found it on Trip Advisor and had the best lunch of our entire 2... More

We ate at Restorante Alberto for lunch during our recent trip to Messina and the food was amazing! We ordered the Linguini w/clams and it was done to perfection! I also had the best Cannoli in my entire life here. The food, service and atmosphere was awesome! A must if you're in Messina!
