Good classic Italian cooking

This is an Italian that it traditional rather than one of the modern 'we focus on pizza and pasta affairs'. The food was all good, tasty and wholesome - classic Italian home-style cooking and was enjoyed by the whole group.

We were there for an anniversary celebration meal, the first time we had visited Alberto's. The meal was of a high standard, and we both enjoyed the food. Service was good, on what was a quiet mid week visit. I had the pork ribs in a sauce, and my wife had the salmon parcels. For the main meal my wife... More

This was a nice restaurant and the staff were very friendly but I found the food a bit bland. The Marie Rose sauce for the smoked salmon cornets could have done with some tabasco and the spaghetti carbonara needed black pepper and quite a lot of parmesan added. But otherwise a nice location and very convenient for an event at... More

Really good wine and food, with great service and a lovely feeling to the place. I've eaten here many times and never been disappointed, whether as a couple or as a party.

My family have known this restaurant for years in fact we used to go to it when it was in St Albans before it moved to the Old Town in Hemel Hempstead. Today was one of those busy days when it was gone 7 o'clock before I had a chance to think about dinner & so we decided to go... More

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." The main room can accommodate around 30 diners, but the tables are too close together. It was pretty full up that night.There is a function room downstairs,... More
