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

Went to Alberto's for a special occasion. Alberto's is an old style Italian restaurant in every sense, which is not a criticism as many of our favourites were on the menu. Unfortunately, our fillet steak Rossini's ordered as medium rare and medium respectively were both served 'well done' and the Marsala wine sauce didn't taste of anything in particular, a... More

I don't know whether this place is trading on established custom, but they don't seem to be trying very hard. I visited on a Tuesday evening so it wasn't too surprising that the place was quiet, however with only four other diners and no background music there was absolutely no ambience. The only real noise was from Alberto(?) who was... More

Sad how Italians feel they have to lessen the quality of their cuisine to suit the clumsy English taste of the locals. The service was sluggish and lacked the grace and cheer that Italians normally effuse.

Good food. Great staff, couldn't do enough for us. No cider in house so they went and bought me some from the shop which turned out to be 8.5% abv. Needless to say we enjoyed our night. Will definitely be returning again.

Had a meal here with some friends on a Friday evening and the food was lovely. The hosts were great, really friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

We had a very enjoyable meal at Albertos restaurant tonight, our daughter was celebrating her birthday and the owner went out of his way to pop out and purchase her a cake at his own expense, the food was lovely, the value was excellent and we would highly recommend for anyone looking for good Italian food with an authentic Italian...
