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. .

Good Italian food in downtown Hyannis

A very good dinner at a well-known restaurant in busy Hyannis. Since it was such a pleasant evening, the four of us opted to eat outside on the patio in front; there is another, more private small patio in back which is a little quieter. There is also plenty of room inside. The shrimp and... read more

We ate so much seafood, we needed pasta and this was the place to go! We opted to sit inside and the restaurant was very Italian and lovely. I had the veal and it was cooked well and tender.

Our family of four (mom, dad and two boys - 3 and 6 yrs. old) stopped into Alberto's for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We were seated on the terrace overlooking Main Street in Hyannis - a great spot for people watching. The service was efficient, though not terribly friendly, but the food made up for it! We had caprese... More

We thoroughly enjoy Alberto's Ristorante. We usually save it for our last night, because it is a special place. The atmosphere is inviting--with white tablecloths, nicely set tables, lovely decor, and a waitstaff that is both pleasant and professional. We had the Pork Osso Bucco and the Broiled Scrod, and we shared a Caesar Salad beforehand, as it was big... More

The food was good and the wait staff was very nice. Overall a decent meal for the Cape on the more expensive side.

Alberto's is one of my favorite restaurants. I have been many many times and never had a bad meal. I have tried many items from the menu and I really don't have a favorite. It's all good.

I was craving seafood that was not fried and the shrimp scampi was exactly what I needed. Very good! Would have loved to sit outside to people watch, but the wait was too long. I would suggest making reservations for outside if you want to eat here, it would be a lovely night out. We used opentable to make reservations... More

We went to Alberto's for a nice lunch right next to the side walk. Our pizza crust was thin and chewy just like we like it. The pepperoni was delish and the salad was large. You order inside and pick your table. They bring it right to you when its ready. We will be back!

We went there expecting to find good food and okay service and were delighted to find great service and atmosphere. Our table for two, was tucked away and we had ample room and privacy - two things which are important to me. I hate feeling cramped. Our server was delightful and explained the specials while she took our order for... More
