Excellent Lunch- great food- and a gluten and dairy free menu as well.

First time eating here having discovered that they offer a comprehensive gluten and dairy free menu option alongside the main menu which was perfect for us. Opted for lunch as we were in Hemel Hempstaed anyway, and a good choice. The place wasn't crowded and the service excellent. Went for the G... read more

Eight of us went to Alberto's 30 January for a family meal. A refreshing change to find a great menu not ful of pizza, pizza and pizza. We loved it, excellent food and an old fashioned style restaurant where the owner was serving along with his family and pals. We will go again.

It's been a while since our last visit but not much has changed. Good menu with plenty to choose from. A relaxed atmosphere, wine and good, hot food. What more could you want. Won't leave it so like no between visits next time.

I always recommend Alberto's to friends and family. The food is delicious and often has items on the menu that you wouldn't be able to get else where. The staff are very friendly and always at hand if any assistance is needed.

Been here a few times and always a great laugh. Alberto is as mad as a hatter but the food is always as good as it gets.

It had been too long....... We went back for my birthday, and wished we had gone back sooner! The food? Stunning, simply stunning! I had the Veal, I've never tasted anything like it, the Salmon was to die for ( so I was informed) and the vegetarian option even looked delish to an out and out meat eater! We went... More

It was my mothers birthday and parents anniversary last week so we chose to celebrate at Alberto's. We had a good meal with nice wine and the prices are very reasonable.

This is another little gem, we have to travel to eat here but it would be worth it to walk the 20 miles. Warm friendly cosy and interesting Alberto's is where I wish other local restaurants should go to see what they do wrong. It is always busy so book early it is definitely worth it. Interestingly it is opposite... More

I absolutely love this little restaurant. The owner reminds me of an Italian version of Manuel from Fawlty Towers, his wife is very ubrupt & the waiter hardly ever smiles... I know this sounds like a bad review, but it's most definitely not. It's a very amusing little place that serves wonderful Italian cuisine with an atmosphere all of it's... More

Always a lovely atmosphere, greeting, food quality and relaxed service. If you like Italian cuisine then this is the place to go in Hemel. Good value too.
