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. .

This is a lovely place, but it is very expensive, and the food is just so-so. No chef-driven cuisine or farm-to-table thing going on here, just the run of the mill Italian classics. So if that's what floats your boat...I don't think I'll be back. The service, however, was excellent.

Three of us had the Osso Bucco and one the braised beef and all of loved their meals. We haven't been to Alberto's for at least 5 years and we quickly regretted that. The food was amazing, the service as good and the surroundings superb. We spent a lovely few hours by adding coffee and desert. We'll certainly will be... More

If you're looking for a family outing for spaghetti and meat balls or Pizza, try DiParma down the street ( Route 28, West Yarmouth - also a good choice, but a... More

This is the 13th year my family and friends have chosen to end the year celebrating New Year's Eve at Alberto's. The environment is decorated beautifully for the holiday.

Alberto's Ristorante is very centrally located on Main Street. We walked in with no reservation and were warmly welcomed. It was a Thursday night and Nancy was playing the piano: Atmosphere was great and we truly enjoyed when she played the very best songs of the Great American songbook. Food and Service were excellent too: we both had breaded veal.... More

We have just made our New Years Eve reservation for 2015. We have been celebrating this event for the past 4 years. Prime rib is super and all the food and drinks. Live band, free hats-horns and noise makers. Great dancing all evening and free champagne. Make reservations early as they sell out. By George the best on the cape.
