So refreshing these days to go to an Italian restaurant that's not part of a chain. We visited on a Sunday lunchtime and loved the amount of choice available from a Christmas, a non seasonal menu and a la carte. The decor gave the place a cosy feel but it also didn't feel cliched or old-fashioned, probably because it's a... More

We went to Alberto's for the first time, having now lived nearby for the last couple of years. Menu feels a bit dated and service was OK but could be more attentive. Wine was opened and left on table without asking whether we want to taste first. Upstairs has been refurbished and looks the part but downstairs is very dated.... More

took my team out from work for a thank you meal. Really looked after - loved the way the owner interacted with everyone. Great service and food, feel there could be more choice on the menu but what we had was thoroughly enjoyed by all - will be back 😄

We have been going to Alberto's since it was situated in St Albans & now it is well located in the Old Town of Hemel Hempstead. I was late home after a busy day & decided to go out for dinner instead of cooking. The parking is easy & free in the evening. I was delighted to find changes in... More

The restaurant has a homely feel and you do not feel rushed, one can relax and have conversation for as long as you like. The food is right out of the top draw. Pricing reflects this and whilst being more expensive than most in the area you get what you pay for. Excellent for special occasions and business lunches with... More

Called in on our way home. Opted for the Sunday lunch menu of beef and red wine gravy. The vegetables were hot and the meal was lovely. What let it down though, was the butter dish was pre used and should of been washed before fresh butter was put on it. The coffee was also Luke warm and my cup... More

We dined at this restaurant last night, We found the food to be well cooked and nicely presented. As you would expect the service was a little slower bearing in mind the food was cooked from scratch. We felt that is was good value for money and the ambience was great. Our only little moan was that the tables were... More

This was the second weekend in a row that we dined at Albertos - and just as good as the week before. Great menu selection and everything was swiftly and freshly cooked. Highlights were the risotto and cheese starters and the chicken and veal dishes with cream sauces. Great tiramisu for desert. Service was efficient and relaxed and it we... More

Had an enjoyable evening out here. The staff were very friendly and the menu choice varied. On the down side the waiting staff were forgetful eg when asked for a jug of water, and one of the starters briefly went missing. Two of us had the starter of black pudding with poached eggs. They tasted fine but would have been... More

Food wasn't so good. Very salty and a bit greasy. Service was rather slow. Nice place to sit, and a good buzz to the restaurant, but I was a bit disappointed.
