Alberto's Ristorante was established in 1984 at which time, Northern Italian cuisine and fresh homemade pasta were introduced to Cape Cod for the first time. Since then, we have continued this tradition of all fresh ingredients and in-house preparation of every course from the soups to the desserts. Our reputation for casual elegance arises from our emphasis on decor, service, the pride we take in food preparation, and our affordability. Over the years, we have received rave reviews from food critics from the Cape Cod Times, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, Cape Cod Life Magazine, Fodor's, AAA, and New York Times critic James Beard for "...exquisite Northern Italian cuisine". Our lounge is the perfect setting for a before dinner cocktail, an after dinner espresso, or an even more casual meal. .

We enjoyed our steamed lobsters, but the garlic and oil pasta side dish was tasteless. The veggies were fresh, and the bread was good. The service was indifferent until the check was delivered. Then we got the friendly attitude. Summation: you can't go wrong with a lobster.

Went with a group of people in late June. To get straight to the point, the food was awful! I ordered a pasta dish that sounded like it would be fresh and bright and essentially turned out to be limp noodles with a bad marinara sauce. The only thing halfway decent were the meatballs that we had for an appetizer.... More

Think we must have been in a different restaurant from many of the reviewers. Had a table booked at 8:30pm, first impressions of the restaurant were good, although felt that there was an element of indifference about our attendance. Extensive menu, both food and wine, which is good and with prices mid-range. The place was empty and its a big... More

We are here because we wanted Italian food and were not disappointed. There is an extensive menu with plenty to choose. There were 8 of us and we all enjoyed our meals. The meatball app was a hit, the hopped salad delicious, the soup very good. The main meals consisted of pasta with sauce and the meatballs and sausage -... More
