Alberto's has been established for many years. On a recent visit with friends in Queens, N.Y., we went out for dinner and could not stop raving about the restaurant for the rest of our trip! The hospitality, which is always of importance to me, was...so wonderful that we were some of the first patrons there and some of the last to leave.The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming and, being from the earthquake country of California, it was delightful to be in a room with warm brick walls. The Northern Italian food was absolutely scrumptious and we even had dessert, which I normally forego. It was melt in your mouth fresh and good, and we insisted on sharing so we could taste as many as possible. We all agreed that the Northern Italian cuisine is lighter than the food in the South, and would definitely recommend it.More

Fantastic Food in a traditional setting - you'll think you're on the set of a Scorcesse movie. Service is great and the cuisine is both classic and creative.

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!

The owner was warm and welcoming and the decor lovely. Our waiter was helpful and attentive without being annoying. The prices are not inexpensive but not outrageous and each dish was delicious beginning with the generous bread baskets. A special place that we will return...to. Note that it is not too far from the LIRR and subway and street parking is available.More

Come expecting good Italian and having wonderful Italian food. Old style service—-like they actually are of service. The food is not the usual and every time I try a new dish. They have a full bar and the bartender is great!! Can’t say enough about...Alberto’s.More

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.

Went to this restaurant with high expectations and was greatly disappointed. We should've left when the owner told us we couldn't bring a drink from the bar to the table. We were finally seated and we could hardly understand the waiter We ordered one order...of mussels too share and the waiter brought two and was annoyed when we told him. We ordered the seafood risotto. Heard it was one of the best dishes it was very fishy and almost inedible. When the waiter took the plates away he told me I ate too much bread. My friends and I were all extremely disappointed and will never come back. The dessert was the only thing decent and besides it was very expensive for what it was. I hardly ever write reviews but I feel people should know before they go to the restaurant unfortunately I did not read any reviews before I came here. So beware before you go.More

When a restaurant survives for 41 years, it has to be doing something right. Alberto's is not simply surviving, it's thriving. Under the continued watchful eyes of Silvana and Roberto, the siblings who started the restaurant, and a team of first-class servers, some of whom...have been with the restaurant for decades, Alberto sets the standard for fine Northern Italian dining. It's classic regional pasta offering, tortelli, a melt-in-your-mouth pasta that you won't find anyplace else, is worth travelling hours to experience again and again. If you had a Northern Italian grandmother, it will bring back some wonderful memories. You will also find entrees like rack of lamb in a savory crust that fewer restaurants are offering, and unlike those that do, the portion is generous and cooked perfectly. The tuna with tomatoes and onions, another classic dish, seared, was enough for two and beautifully presented. Finish the meal with strawberries and zabaglione and a complimentary glass of moscato, and you'll want to return, after a visit to the gym, of course! It's well worth a trip from Manhattan or the east end of Long Island to visit Alberto's, again and again.More

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.
