The restaurant was beautifully decorated with evergreen wreaths, boughs, and canes, and holiday music further set the homey feeling in the dining room. Our server recognized my husband as a bocci ball player and made us feel quite welcome. The family photos in the menu and on the walls set the atmosphere of pride in their Italian roots! I had...

Took my daughter out for a birthday meal - thought I would try some place that we have never been to. The bread was a loaf style, most things tasted like they were out of a can - clam chowder, tomato sauce on spaghetti, Alfredo sauce. My daughter could not eat her meal and I could not eat my spaghetti.... More

Ate at Albanese's on the recommendation of our hotel clerk. She said it is a local favorite. I might not be being fair, since we have the best Italian restaurant anywhere in Beaverton OR, but we were a bit disappointed in our meal. The salad was obviously bagged and very wilted. The spaghetti sauce was good, but there was way... More

Pizza was crispy and very tasty. Drinks were a little pricey, even at happy hour. I didn't realize they had drink specials until after I ordered - it would have been nice if the bartender pointed that out before I placed my order. The parking in front was very crowded and several parking spaces were taken up by picnic tables... More

food okay, service is terrible. we had a party of six and it took forever to get our food, then we gave the waitress a tip deserving of the service. the restaurant charged my credit card more than the bill.

This is the type of prototypical 'American' Italian style restaurant I like which utlizes thick red tomato sauce to excellent effect on many of its dishes. This is not too say they don't have lots of other things on their large menu which don't use this sauce, but my chicken cacciatore with a side of sphaghetti, drenched in the above... More

My family went to this restaurant after watching a movie. We were seated in the bar area at one of those tall tables, very uncomfortable for me, since I am short. The waitstaff got our beverage orders, and then we waited for quite awhile for her to come back and get our dinner orders. Then we waited. The waitstaff did... More

Having grown up in Wauwatosa, WI, I desperately craved Balistreiri's pizza last weekend while staying with my parents in Waukesha. We drove in, only to find the wait over an hour for a table. Soooooo disappointed, but my daughter suggested Albanese's, as she's been there with my parents in the past. Well, they did not disappoint. We had to wait... More

Hadn't been to Albanese's in years! We stopped in and sat in the sports bar. It was packed! We ordered a sandwich and zucchini fries. They were great! The atmosphere was good and it's a nice choice for a casual evening out They even have bocce ball leagues in the summer. Make sure you try it-you won't be disappointed!
