Classic Italian in Classic Setting

This place is classic! I make sure to visit overtime I am in Palm Springs. My boyfriend has been going over the past few years and we both enjoy it. The staff are friendly and the food is good. I recommend the seafood linguini and the tiramisu - of course!

The wait staff were very nice, stopping to chat and share information on the area. The dishes we ordered were excellent ! Our waiter brought us spumoni for dessert saying " special for Canadians!" we... More

Good, traditional....been there for many years. Old style Italian. If you are looking for contemporary Italian food...not the place for you. Comfortable setting....average food.

The food was great. The ambience was exactly as expected - The Rat Pack used to hang out here and they haven't changed much. BUT - we were rushed and not treated like two people paying $300 for dinner should have been. The Caesar salad which was advertised to be made tableside arrived premade in less than 5 minutes. Then... More

You have to look closely to not miss Alberto's off El Paseo. But search until you find it because it's well worth it. Top notch restaurant featuring Italian fare. The veal and pasta entrees are the best. The wait staff friendly and helpful. There are lots of fine dining spots in the desert--this is one of the best.

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 the veal chop... 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...
