Went with 4 other friends to celebrate a birthday. It was going to be a 45min. wait. No problem. We happily found seats at the bar. After 90 minutes, yes I did say 90 minutes we were seated. The waitstaff was terrible (and that is a compliment). There was no compensation for our wait time or even a sorry. I... More

Spent a lot of time as a kid at the riverwest location. Loved it. Won't come back to this one because the service is nothing short of awful. Sat down in the bar area no one came over. 10 mins later went and got my own menus. 10 mins later left since no one felt like coming to take our... More

Albanese's is great food. You will not go away hungry or disappointed. Throw back Tuesdays are a great way to get less expensive food. Be sure to try the creamy parmesan dressing for your salad.

They were out of calamari. So we have Alfredo , antipasto salad and I had fried shrimp, soup and salad and dish of veggies. I can't say I enjoyed this meal. It was good tasted ok not over cooked not burnt just ok. Nothing special. I would come again just to try something else. The waitress was very nice. But... More

They have a wonderful fish fry on Friday nights. Lightly breaded and delicious. They have expanded the seating recently.

A life time ago, there was this little hole in the wall place on East Keefe avenue in Milwaukee. Albanese's. Tiny place with a bar out front that had house made red wine on tap, a pool table, and a hand full of tables in the back. The pasta dishes and pizzas were hearty and tasty. If you went there...

This is a busy place on Friday nights. There is a good reason why. The fish fry is awesome. Deep fried cod in a light Italian breading, served with spaghetti, mostacolli or French fries. Their pizza is very good also. Get a bottle of their reasonably priced house wine while you are there!

This restaurant is the last remnant of the Albanese restaurants in the Milwaukee area. I used to go to the original restaurant in Milwaukee a lot growing up in Milwaukee, but that restaurant has been closed for some time. This restaurant is owned and run by the same family, and much of what was charming about the original restaurant remains... More

Albanese's is a fun place to have a drink and grab a bite to eat. The bartenders and servers are all accommodating and very professional. TVs are all over the place and Albanese's is a great place to watch a game. Sadly, the food is only mediocre. My Caesar salad was bland and simply not special. The manager was kind... More
