I was born and bred in this area and 'Albertos' and Alberto himself has been there probably as many years as I have been alive. This is my aging mothers favorite restaurant in the area and so on my recent visit home from Australia I booked for dinner. We arrived early on a Saturday night - 6.30 pm. Initially we... More

One of several restaurants in Hemel Hempstead's Old High Street, this one is an Italian run by the eponymous Alberto (he's almost worth a review on his own). Service is good and the food is excellent, we have been here several times including a 60th birthday celebration and a wedding, where the whole place was booked for the function. Prices... More

Lovely food served by friendly staff, reasonably priced for an enjoyable meal. Decor could do with some repairs and modernisation.

Run by two delightful, friendly Italian men who make you really feel at home in this quaint building in a beautifully restored old street. It has an honest Italian menu with a great selection of primi piatti (starters) that we enjoyed but it is the daily hand written menu that really excited me. Ordered the chicken filled with pate and... More

Absolutely fantastic restaurant, visited with teenage children for our wedding anniversary. Found on web and booked before visiting as don't live in area but definitely lived up to its good reviews. Service was excellent and food just perfect. A must visit for lovers of Italian food

Have eaten here on many occasion but, must admit we were rather disappointed on this visit. The service was good but the meal nothing special this time. The restaurant was packed so perhaps we were just unlucky on our choice of menu.

We went there with friends, a nice relaxed atmosphere not pressured to order quickly although the restaurant was busy.The food was excellent and well presented and the drinks were good. The staff were curtious towards us as usual although they were under pressure as it was very busy.

After and exhausting day sightseeing in Cambridge, we decided to come home and have our dinner in Hemel Hempstead. Alberto accommodated us at short notice and we had a delightful dinner, downstairs, a bit quieter than upstairs would have been. Quite a buzzy restaurant and I hope it is there for a long time to come as it is a... More
