Our tour bus group came here for dinner--had choices of scrod, chicken parmesean and one more. We had the chicken and they gave you two big pieces of chicken with penne pasta. I couldn't eat it all--there was so much. They did offer fresh grated chesse to everyone. We had a nice salad and fresh Italian bread.The dessert was excellent--a... More

We tried the 3 course set menu and found it exceptional. Clam chowder followed by shrimp and clams and stewed apple. Service is good and food was terrific. Was rather surprised to see people queueing to get a place even though they had 140 bookings.

Our bus tour stopped for a scatter lunch in downtown Hyannis. We easily found Alberto's right on the Main street. The ristorante was just opening for the day and we were the first through the door. The have a large menu. I had a dish with Italian gravy and three types of meat. Wonderful and filling.

Probably the best place for Italian food on the Cape, the outside sidewalk cafe (seasonal) is charming. The portions are generous and the food is delicious, I always enjoy it here.

In town for a wedding and visited Alberto's late on a windy and cool October Monday night. A smattering of diners. We had antipasto and fra diavola--both excellent. Fra diavola has lots of types of seafood but they were all prepared spot on. Even more excellent was that I ordered a bottle of Ridge Lytton Springs zinfandel--and the manager came... More

Craving Italian and we all wanted to try this restaurant on Main Street. Place is romantic with dim lighting. Our waitress was great and helped us out with some questions we had about the menu. 2 of us had the seafood pasta which was cooked perfectly. I had the soup which was a light tomato based soup. It was very... More

We found this place as we were cruising along Main Street searching for the next restaurant to try. There were a couple of vacant tables outside so we decided to check it out. It was a breezy and beautiful fall evening and the atmosphere was very nice. Parking was readily available along Main Street in late September. It was a... More

We like this restaurant. The chef's special fish dish is usually great. The last time we went, they didn't have meat ravioli, which my husband really likes, on the menu. The chef's special was swordfish with lobster and crab meat, not a felicitous combination to my mind. The fish soup was delicious, but it arrived lukewarm. The house salad leaves... More

Ate here with a large group, service was good, atmosphere was nice but a little average maybe because we were in a group and in a separate room. The food was delicious and if you are looking for great lobster this is your placed, cooked just right for me. The dessert was good as well an ice cream ball dipped... More

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. .
