We went to Alberto’s with friends for Sunday lunch. There is a friendly welcoming atmosphere with children welcomed into the restaurant. The food was delicious and we particularly enjoyed the cheesecake. Wholly recommended for a quality lunch in a friendly atmosphere.

We went to this restaurant on a Saturday night for a family birthday celebration. It is situated in the one nice street of Hemel Hempstead opposite where they filmed "Pie in the Sky."

We would not recommend this restaurant. After high expectations we are sorry to say that the food was terrible, the house wine much the same. We did pay, did not leave a tip although we were asked to. Will not be back. Would rather cook at home than visit this restaurant ever again.

We went on a Saturday afternoon to celebrate my husbands birthday. 6 adults 1 child and a baby!!.. The restaurant is small and delightful. The waiters were very attentive but not overly so and very welcoming. The food was superb abd beautifully cooked and very generous portions. I'm not sure I'd like to be there at a really busy time.... More
