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 came to Alberto's after returning on the ferry from Nantucket. I was concerned that it might be crowded, but was pleasantly surprised to get a table right away. The restaurant was fairly full, probably with some locals. Our waiter was attentive and helpful with the menu. We had fabulous salads, I had cannelloni (one of my favorite Italian dishes)... More

Alberto's is a fine dining Italian restaurant on Main Street in Hyannis. Our tour of close to 100 went for dinner in Hyannis one night. The room was pleasantly decorated with prints on the wall and gauzy material hanging from the ceiling. Our servers were young, energetic, efficient and very professional as would be expected at an upscale Italian restaurant.... More

We came through Hyannis after a day on Cape Cod, looking for something good but reasonable. Alberto's was recommended by a local merchant. It's a beautiful Italian restaurant, but definitely on the high end. We weren't looking for a heavy meal, so ordered mostly soups and salads. Our waiter may have had a bad day, or perhaps he missed Lessons... More

We were traveling with a large group with a pre-arranged dinner here. We had salad, lobster and a piece of corn on the cobb. The lobster was tasteless, the salad was just ok as was the corn. If you ordered drinks, gratuity was already added. The service here is AWFUL! I have never, ever, been to a resturant in my... More

While visiting Hyannis we stopped by to have lunch one afternoon. The restaurant is nicely decorated and they had a moderate amount of business. We all ordered sandwiches and I didn't realize that you had a choice of salad or fries with your sandwich, the server never asked us. Once our sandwiches came out from the kitchen we realized the...
