Good but not great

Went there with another couple. Sat in dinning area, very pleasant and not overly noisy. Nice pleasant atmosphere. Service was very good and professional. Osso bucco was ok, not as tender as it should be (2 people had it) and the steak special was not tasty. Skipped dessert . Valet service is a... read more

Alba is a fine dining steak house restaurant in Quincy. Beautiful atmosphere, great food and service to match! It is great for a business meeting or date night. They have a number of private areas which can be reserved for private functions and a roof deck which is open during the summer. They sometimes have live music on Saturday nights... More

Food was out of this world, as I do not eat beef, I was worried, but I had the most incredible rack of lamb. I did feel a little rushed as it was Saturday night and they wanted to flip the table, but food was five stars. Can't wait to go back

Very nice dinner at Alba. Not sure if they have a new cook, but the food, service and ambiance was much better than the past. I had the rack of lamb, and it was amazing. Perfectly done and a very nice portion. My wife and son both had pasta dishes and they loved them. We finished with the special "upsidedown... More

I have been coming to Alba's for a couple of years. The service is always fantastic. We usually sit at the bar and the bartenders are always attentive. Their outdoor patio is awesome! Their food is delicious, especially their Prime Rib dinner on Thursday nights. They are always running daily specials, so check them out, you will not be disappointed.

We tried Alba for the first time. At first we were discouraged by a two hour wait for a table but then learned we could sit anywhere in the large bar area. We sat at a high top table and ordered from the bar menu. There were plenty of good choices. Our server was friendly and answered our questions. The... More

Recently had the chance to dine at Alba, not having been there for a while I was very pleased to have had a wonderful meal with great service. Their special that evening was prime rib. It was the largest cut I think I have ever been served. Tender and rare for me, done just perfectly. All three of us totally... More

Very upscale restaurant. My filet mignon was tied with the best one I have ere eaten. All I remember about dessert is that it was scrumptious.
