We love the Alba Restaurant. We eat here at least twice a month and have never been disappointed. The food, wine and service is excellent. Sometimes there is a " fixe prix" meal with appetizer, dinner and dessert for one price. Sometimes there are specials on wine. We enjoyed an excellent bottle of Chardonnay that was half price ! I...

I was there with my family for new year's eve and I couldn't be more impressed. I thought because they would be busy that the service wouldn't be perfect but it was more than I expected. The hostess was marvelous and our server Brem was excellent. She found out we were from Puerto Rico and even spoke to us in... More

They have redone the restaurant since the last time we were there for dinner. The front part of the restaurant is pretty much all bar with high top tables and the dining room is in the back of the restaurant. Very elegant and the service was excellent. We were dying for a good steak and we were not disappointed. They... More

Up there with the best of the best in the South Shore, Alba can kick butt with Tosca & Alma Nove for fine dining south of Boston. Dinner last night with visiting foodie friends from San Francisco--who think nothing can compare with their restaurant scene -- were overwhelmed with the quality of food & wine from our delicious dinner. Firstly,... More

I was recently at Alba for an attorney sponsored Real Estate meet and greet. The staff is friendly and very concerned about meeting the needs of the customer.

Our son took my wife and I out to dinner a little while ago to their favorite restaurant. I've been to Alba before and wasn't very impressed with the food or the atmosphere then so I thought going again would be different. It was to a degree. The food was better this time and I thought the steaks were very... More
