Good expierience

Went for a small birthday party and had good time. We mostly had sandwiches which were good. One person had chicken cacciatore that was outstanding . Also the Alfredo sauce won praise. The young wait staff did a very good job and we will return soon for pizza. We'll run operation in my opinion.

My wife and I moved from Waukesha in 1986. We had always gone to Albanese's for get-togethers, parties, etc. We always were served excellent fare with very friendly service by Dominic Albanese and his staff. Recently, we visited our old neighborhood and again ate at Albanese's. Joe Albanese (the son) remembered us and we were treated like royalty along with... More

Don't let this quiet looking place fool you...open the doors and its a happening place with great Italian food! Separate dining area without the TV if you prefer. Highly recommended. High energy atmosphere.

My neighbor had mentioned Albanese’s to me in conversation, so I suggested to my husband that we try it. Everyone we interacted with was great, especially our server. Portions were generous enough that we had leftovers to take home, and the bruschetta was quite tasty. My husband ordered veal Parmesan and said that it was good. The slice of veal... More

I've eaten here many times over the years. It's a great Italian restaurant. They make a delicious homemade spaghetti and their homemade wine is also quite good and inexpensive! Buy a bottle and take the rest home with you. Everyone here is nice and you have an Italian family atmosphere!

we uses to live near albanese's a do went often, that was 10 years ago. We took two couples here and bragged about it the whole way. Bar area is nice and comfortable to wait until our table was ready. We all ordered a different version of paste. All had the same base sauce which was extremely bland. I had... More

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
