“Elegant yet welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

The food was great, especially the Capris, they know how to cook steak, so don't order it Medium thinking it will come out Medium-well, order as you like it. This place is higher end, so the prices are higher but not ridiculous and worth the cost for the quality and quantity. I will always go back if it's the same as the last 2 trips, I'm not a high roller but do enjoy a nice and welcoming place like Alberini's

“Great food, atmosphere, and...the wine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

This place is deceivingly large inside. From the outside it appears to be rather small...until you go inside. They have a large wine selection just as you enter the door. You can buy wine for immediate takeout, have them hold wine for you until you finish eating, or even buy wine to go with your meal ($8 corking fee which I think is absurd since you are buying their wine...).

The food is well prepared and consists of large proportions - enough to take home to "Fluffy".

The dim lighting, dark wood trim, white table cloths, candles, etc, make for a VERY nice atmosphere.

It looks like they can handle rather large groups as well if you want to plan a party there.

“We love this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Used to eat at the other Alberini's, but that has closed. So we now eat here when in the area.

Food wine service all very good.

Several guests we have taken also like it.

“Great food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten several times here and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is relaxing and elegant, though it is fine to dress casually. Ask for one of the semi-circular booths in the bar area if you have a group up to four people. It is private and you can watch your favorite games on the bar TV's while enjoying your food.
