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. .

Alberto's was pretty solid all around. Fried Calamari was a good starter along with very fresh Wellfleet oysters, and salads. Veal dishes were very good, seasoned beautifully and nice rich sauces.

Alberto's Ristorante - Hyannis, MA - 4/15/2015 Three slices of room temperature French bread...Olive Oil with a medley of Olives... Cakes of butter... The bread almost has a sourdough quality to it and was quite scrumptious... I usually prefer my bread served warm but this was quite spectacular. Turns out they get their bread from a gourmet French bakery around... More

You will love this quaint restaurant with their warm rolls and olive oil with large black olives mixed in. Delicious calamari, wonderful risotto. We brought the family and the kids loved everything they ate too. The ambiance was perfect with a cozy fireplace. If you are in the area, check it out... you will be pleased.

We live locally and decided to give Alberto's a try, especially since we had a $15 coupon. Their menu is huge as is their wine list so there's certainly something for everyone. We were seated in a room with a wall gas fireplace which was nice on a chilly night. Next time I return, I would ask for the room... More

I go to Albertos at least 5 times a year, love the veal dishes, very reasonably priced, mostly for lunch less crowded and I take my 90 year old mother who loves the veal also, but overall the dining room hasn't been renovated in 20 years, but doesn't effect the quality of the food it just needs an update:)

My husband and I went to Alberto's with another couple and we were all, sadly disappointed in our meals. We sat at the bar. The bartender was wonderful, made a great martini and was very pleasant, unfortunately she wasn't cooking. We enjoyed our appetizers; salmon carpaccio and bruschetta. We did not, unfortunately enjoy our meals. I had the eggplant parm,... More

A nice quiet evening meal with lots to choose from on the menu. I was there early in the evening so it wasn't that busy so service was timely and not pushy. I like time to have a pre dinner drink and then my meal and not be rushed which is what I got.

We visited Alberto's for an evening with friends. The room we sat in was lovely and we were promptly seated for our reservation. The food was excellent! We chose to order from the price fix menu and the portions were plenty big enough and the selection great. It is a great value and I would highly recommend it. We have... More

This was our third visit to Albertos and everything was just as good as the first visit. My husband had veal parm, that's how he judges an Italian restaurant! Large portion, tender and delicious. I had lobster ravioli in a light cream sauce with asparagus - it was superb! I usually don't like cream sauces but this was not overpowering... More

Just had lunch at the bar with a friend who is a chef from Nantucket. The food was very good. The service was OK because there was a language barrier. Tuna and veal were prepared well. Tuna was exceptional and plated nicely. Veal parmesan was very good but the sauce was a little burnt. Not that most people would have... More
