Good Italian Fish Fry!

We frequently meet friends here to enjoy their Friday night fish fry. It's difficult to find a parking spot and in winter their lot is frequently slippery. However, the fish is great and you can get a side of pasta with it! The best part is Cannoli for dessert! If you're not a fish fan there is... read more

We've dined at Albanese's many, many times and for the last 10 years have gone there on New Year's Eve. Last night was a horrible experience, not like any others we have had there. We arrived for our 6 p.m. reservation and were seated immediately. It was 10 minutes before someone came to our table with water, and a few... More

I was craving egg plant Parmesan And meatballs so I ordered the supersized meatball appetizer which was burnt on one side ....then the entrée came out and the pasta was literally stuck together... the eggplant was at least edible... Next time I'll make it at home

Great Italian full menu with pizza and daily specials. Value-priced and tasty. The house wine is the perfect compliment to any meal. Wonderful Italian Fish Fry on Fridays. Large bar with countless tv's if just stopping for a casual beverage or awaiting a table. Our family has been patronizing Albanese's for 20 years. Keep up the good work!

I've had some spectacular Italian meals here with bad service. In my book still a four star rating. I've had so-so meals with great service. Still four stars. On occasion, (as other reviewers have noted) you do get a so-so meal with poor service (10% of the time). I would stop by and go slow. Have a sandwich at or... More

Had not been there for a few years and now will remember to not go back. After a long wait, food came cold. They did recook the meals and then did nothing for the inconvenience noting that they made new meals and do not credit for the problem.

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.
