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...

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.
