Description: 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 had a large party of about twenty people, half kids and half adults. They did an excellent job of managing the time for the kids all the while bringing out the most delicious food of the weekend. The only complaint any of had was that the service wasn't all that friendly and while that doesn't always mean the most,... More

Alberto's did an excellent job with our meal tonight. Extensive wine list, good salads and soups. Our entire party of six got different pasta meals, all of which were delicious. The desserts, especially the tiramisu and Alberto's cheesecake, were awesome! Our waiter had good knowledge of the menu, and was attentive without being obtrusive. The atmosphere was sophisticated casual, complete... More

We took advantage of the "early special". Since reading reviews, the times and costs of the special appear to have changed. When we visited, they offered the 3-course meal for $24.95 from 11:30 (open) til 5:45. Opted to sit outside on a sunny afternoon at about 4:00pm. We were the only ones sitting on the patio at that time, and... More

Went here with a party of four and the place was well rec'd by all. All orders were for the Chicken Parmagiana and it was quite good. The inside was a bit upscalish and we had wished that we chose to dine out on the sidewalk as it was a beautiful breezy day and their outdoor dining on Main St.... More

We knew this place already from previous visits, they were recommended to us before so we decided to go back. The experience was pleasant, nice traditional style restaurant with good food. The prices were too high we thought but if that is not a concern for you we recommend it.

My husband and I were there recently. It was not very busy. Our waitress was never to be found. The Manager walked past the table 4 times with empty plates on the table and an 2 empty wine glasses! I expected more. Once again the food was great but without the service, it put a huge damper on our experience.... More

When planning our annual trip to Cape Cod I found a groupon for Alberto's. Thought we'd try something new. What a waste of money!! I understood the limits of groupon as stated in the fine print - dinner only, no specials, no pre-fix, no alcohol; the usual. When the waitress took our drink order I mentioned our groupon. When she... More

After the disaster of eating at Spankys on our first night in Hyannis this was a complete contrast. Lovely clam chowder for me and fresh beautiful caprese salad for my wife . Followed by lobster ravioli for two - cooked to perfection. All washed down by a nice New Zealand Sav Blanc. Would have been perfect but for the mains... More
