Description: Alberto's Ristorante was established in 1984 at which time, Northern Italian cuisine and fresh homemade pasta were introduced to Cape Cod for the first time. Since then, we have continued this tradition of all fresh ingredients and in-house preparation of every course from the soups to the desserts. Our reputation for casual elegance arises from our emphasis on decor, service, the pride we take in food preparation, and our affordability. Over the years, we have received rave reviews from food critics from the Cape Cod Times, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, Cape Cod Life Magazine, Fodor's, AAA, and New York Times critic James Beard for "...exquisite Northern Italian cuisine". Our lounge is the perfect setting for a before dinner cocktail, an after dinner espresso, or an even more casual meal. .

“If you Love Italian, you'll love Alberto's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

My Husband and I went on Black Friday! We were staying on the Cape for three nights over Thanksgiving, went down to Main street in Hyannis to do some Christmas shopping and stopped in to Alberto's for a late lunch around 3 pm. I had called earier that day and made a reservation - but for lunch I don't really think you need to. Dinner time yes make a reservation! Veal Marsala is my favorite dish and even though it was not on the lunch menu, the chef made it for me anyways!! Our waiter was Italian and one of the best waiters ever! Made great suggestions especially about the soup! This was our second visit and we thoroughly enjoyed it both times. My husband ordered a 2 lb. baked stuffed lobster - stuffed with shrimp and scallop stuffing - it was so over the top I had to take a photo! He loved it! Great appetizers, excellent salads, cabernet wine was great. Overall a wonderful late afternoon meal. I can't wait to go back.

“Consistently good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

As retirees on Cape Cod, there are certain restaurants that have become favorites, and Alberto's is one of them. The atmosphere is special with low lighting, flowers, and candles, but you can visit for a special occasion or come in off the street.
Their Italian dishes are excellently prepared, and the variety is endless.
We love it in the winter when the fireplace is going, and the crowds in Hyannis have disappeared.
Always a favorite in our book!

“Great Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Had the best marinara meal ever. Tasty with lots of seafood. Strange way to enter down the alleyway and not through the front door on Main Street. Saw some potential customers get confused and walk on by.

“The Best Italian Food on Cape Cod”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We, being a party of three, had another wonderful meal last night at Alberto's. Every time the food and service has been top-notch. The staff always has extensive knowledge about everything on the menu, including means of preperation.
Match a fine bottle of wine from their wide-ranging wine list. You will not be disappointed with any choice of white or red.
Come to Alberto's for any occasion, but by all means, come.
