Description: A family run independent bistro serving freshly made Italian & Mexican meals plus Alberto's Special fusion dishes. Alberto's Bistro is set in a seperate room from Alberto's Bar, which can be quite busy &, at times, some noise from the bar may filter through to the bistro. Alberto's Bistro is open from 6pm Wednesday to Saturday. On Wednesdays & Thursdays our menu offers tapas style versions of dishes from the regular menu. Bookings are recommended, but not always necessary, as our capacity is 20. Sorry, no children under 12.

Visited with friends for a birthday celebration. We weren't sure what to do but the helpful waitress said people usually order 2 dishes each to share. As there was 4 of us this gave us a good selection and each dish allowed us all a small portion :-) Building on the theme we ordered a different desert each and shared... More

My wife and I had dinner in Alberto's for the first time last week and were blown away, we didnt realise that there was such good and affordable food on offer just around the corner from us! The staff were very friendly, greeted us, showed us to our table and made sure we had everything we needed without being intrusive.... More

We visited Alberto’s for a midweek treat and were glad that it was the Tapas menu as we had never sampled that before. As most other reviewers have commented, the food is wonderful, portion sizes generous and the service is good. It is attached to the main bar so I guess on occasions it could get noisy but nothing too... More

Readers please note, our house wine is £11.75 not £17.50! It's misleading to readers if our house wine appears to be £17.50, so please read on..... The wine that was served on this occasion was our most expensive red wine, a Gran Reserva Cabarnet Sauvignon at £17.25. I am convinced that you won't find the same wine cheaper anywhere else,...

I ordered lasagne - which was fantastic!! The entire meal was very high standards and just as important - very good value for money! Would not go anywhere else in Retford to... More

Went there recently with 2 friends for a belated birthday meal. It was tapas night and I was a little apprehensive as I have never been for a tapas style meal before. I needn't have worried. The food was absolutely lovely. We all ordered four dishes and we couldn't believe the size of the portions. Needless to say we were... More

I'm so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Alberto's. It's true, our tapas style dishes are more like starter portions than traditional tapas, but this is the Tapas Revolution!!!! Thank you very much for your kind review. We look forward to seeing you again, with your husband this time. More

We visited Alberto's for the first time with friends celebrating a milestone birthday, the staff were very pleasant, friendly and smiling, rare these days, the food was well presented, and the plain Lasagne, was tasty, and excellently cooked. Not only was the food, surroundings and friendly staff a plus, the ladies washroom had attention to detail and brilliantly clean.
