This place is one of those restaurants, where you are thrown back in time, in only the best way. it is old school, without being tired. The decor is rich, the staff is old school fine dining perfection, with just the right amount of a vintage Italian edge. The food is really very very good. I had... read more

Someone said, "I don't want a California Italian meal"...so we thought...and tried Alberto's again last night...and we'd like to echo what other reviewers have been saying...by far the best Italian restaurant in the Valley...it starts with a big Easy To Read (for we olde folk) Sign right off 111...an attentive valet who parks your car in Alberto's Lot...not who knows...

My girlfriend and I recently were fortunate to be given a gift card to enjoy dinner out at the restaurant. I had read a majority of the reviews posted commenting on how delicious the food was though the staff could be a bit pretentious. Which menu items were considered to be house specialties that had people returning time and time... More

We have been dining at Alberto's for more than twenty years and never been disappointed. They have a wonderful menu of Italian Specialty Dishes all prepared from family recipes that have stood the test of time. We especially like their Veal Dishes, Chicken Alberto and Sausage and Peppers. You won't be disappointed with any food choice. The food is complemented... More

We just went to dinner at Alberto's, we have been there several times and as usual it was wonderful, excellent italian food, great service. The cotoletta and ossobuco are some of the best I've ever had, better than the one you can eat in Italy. Pesto gnocchi was wonderful also. We are looking forward to go back soon.

We have been LONG time visitors to Alberto's in Rancho Mirage. Although the food is quite good, we recently noticed some very sneaky tactics on behalf of the restaurant. If you ask for any substitutions whatsoever, make sure you ask if there will be an additional charge. The waitstaff is so solicitous that one might expect that a simple substitution... More

If you like being ripped off, this is the place to go. Double check your bill when it arrives and for goodness sake do not substitute one veggie or pasta for another. The son of the owner has failed to follow the example of his Father and is looking for a quick buck.
