Sure it was over 20 years ago, but the food was great then and still great today. My husband's favorite place to go for his birthday dinner even though we live in Suffolk County!

6 of us for special birthday dinner. Exceptional food & service. Staff fussed over the birthday girl which was lovely. The filet mignon, veal, pasta, salads all fantastic. Great desserts too. So glad we chose Alberto for this event.

As far as I know, Alberto does not do lunch. They only have private functions during the afternoon. They don't open for dinner until 5pm. Also, no pre-fixe menus.
