Dinner on a Sunday night in downtown Quincy is a quiet affair. You can park on the street. If tumbleweed existed in this colony, it would be tumbling down the street. Alba is, perhaps, the only reason to go. This is a commodious place, that has a large bar area and a large dining room. The décor in the dining... More

The food was outstanding however the server seemed distracted, hurried, and inattentive. We visited early on a Tuesday evening during a relatively slow time but still found we were waiting for service, which was very impersonal.

Myself and my husband walked into the restaurant at 4pm not realizing that it had literally just opened for business and made our way to a table in the empty establishment. The group of staff that were congregated at the bar kept staring at us so I got a feeling they were closed so i asked was it ok that... More

I had another excellent meal last night at Alba's. Everything was served hot, delicious and cooked perfectly. When you go to a good steakhouse, the meat should be cooked exactly like you order it, from rare to well done. Our steaks were perfect! This is a great place for large groups with round tables available and private rooms. It is... More

Its very fancy and kind of expansive (the pasta that my girlfriend got was about $22~$23) but the food is definietly worth it! The restaurant is funny but everywhere else around the restaurant is kind of ghetto lol

This is a very nice restaurant with great food. Going here for an after work drink on the roof is one of the best features in downtown Quincy.
