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.

Alberto's Ristorante, has been in Rancho Mirage for more then 30 yrs. The food is mostly excellent. We miss the Ceacar salad being made fresh at table side. The veal is a definate to order at Alberto's. They make it several ways and all are delicious. Service is sometimes questionable but that is a sign of the times in every... More

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.

Once in while you have a real exceptional restaurant experience, one that stands out and locks away in your memory forever. Alberto's did that for me. I have owned and operated several restaurants over the years so I feel I have some idea of what works. Ben Franklin said "the flavor of the roast is determined by the handshake of... More

I always read reviews and paid attention from where they came from. I've traveled the world for years and finally retired down here. My parents are 100% italian and my mother happen to make all of her italian dishes from scratch...It was extremely good and so said many people who enjoyed her dinners. I am very critical and enjoy great... More

This is a true MUST GO place. I lived in Italy for almost 8 years and have a hard time finding Real Italian Food - not the Spaghetti and Meat Balls or Pizza. Here is where you can eat like the real italians do! Entering the door already makes you feel like you are traveling back in time and it... More

This was a second visit with 6 years between visits. Why so long? I think it might be the prices. The food was decent enough and the service was great. I just don't understand charging such high prices for Italian when there are some very good restaurants in the valley with lower prices. However, that being said, the atomosphere is... More
