Went with my daughter who enthused about this little, pretty restaurant. Because of this I was expecting more. My calamari was a dirty brown colour. My pork was average, and the tiramisu was slopped on the plate. I suspect Brake brothers? Service a little slow, and we had to ask for the bill when we had clearly finished eating 20+... More

This is one of the nicest genuine italian restaurants that I know. Have been here before and the restaurant never fails to deliver. Real home cooked food and served with pleasure. No microwave use. great flavours will visit time and again.

We went as a family of 6, and on arrival were placed right next to the front door. As this was a warm evening, that did not cause an issue in terms of draught, but I wouldn't want to sit there in November! However, it did feel like you were having your dinner on the M25. The service was OK,... More

We stayed in a local hotel in Hemel Hempstead and as it was such a lovely area we decided to try one of the local eateries on the Old English High Street. Alberto’s looked like a nice homely Italian and we weren’t disappointed. Unlike Bella Italia/Pasta Bella, Alberto’s is a genuine Italian family run restaurant and as such it is... More

First impressions were that the establishment was rather homespun . However we had a friendly reception ( yes the lunch menu was handwritten on a scrap of paper ! ) and it probably helped that the friend who took us there was a regular customer . It seems to be very much a family affair . The food was good... More

We hired Albertos for a wedding reception, having visited before as a family. I have to say, not only is the food very good but the people involved in the whole experience are amazing professionals. We had a wedding party of 20 and they were happy for us to order from the normal ala carte menu!!! All the dishes arrived... More

Such a refreshing change from the ubiquitous Italian chain restaurants. The proprietor maintains a high standard with a personal touch in convivial surroundings

We visit Alberto's at least 1-2 times a month as we live very close by. We love the Sunday lunch there with our friends and also the evening meals when on our own. There is a good choice on the menu and for us it is always well cooked. The lamb knuckle is great with the veg etc is a... More

This was our regular place for many years, first in St Albans, then Hemel. We have not been since we moved to Norfolk 12 years ago, but wangled a trip to Hemel yesterday and booked in. We were impressed that Alberto remembered us, and it was as if we had never been away, though one staff member had changed. We... More
