We enjoyed, as usual, the tapas. Unfortunately the waitress seemed to be preoccupied, there were only 3 of us in when order for drinks and food taken. And only three other people came in. The refurb seems to have taken the atmosphere. Also a friendly smile and chat from waitress as before would be a welcome addition.

Made our first visit just the two of us to see for ourselves if it was as good as its reviews. It was. Great food, fantastic service (thank you again Abbie) and nice surroundings. Chocolate fondue to die for!! Went back again a few nights later with our son and daughter-in-law who came up to see us for the weekend.... More

Brilliant service, fabulous food with a just right menu. If you love Italian or Mexican food then this is the only place to go! We've been here 4-5 times now and have already booked our next table. Thank you.

We regularly come to Albertos for tapas and I wouldn't bother eating out at any other place in Retford. The food is incredible, the value unbelievable, environment cosy, service/staff friendly and presentation of food is top notch!! Really enjoy coming here and only on our doorstep!!!

Before the birth of our first child Alberto's was and in fact still is our favourite restaurant, it is just too far us to travel at the moment. The food is fantastic, the freshest and tastiest that you will find for miles around, we all ways visit on the tapas nights and of the dozen times we have been to... More
