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

We frequently meet friends here to enjoy their Friday night fish fry. It's difficult to find a parking spot and in winter their lot is frequently slippery. However, the fish is great and you can get a side of pasta with it! The best part is Cannoli for dessert! If you're not a fish fan there is an extensive Italian... More

We've dined at Albanese's many, many times and for the last 10 years have gone there on New Year's Eve. Last night was a horrible experience, not like any others we have had there. We arrived for our 6 p.m. reservation and were seated immediately. It was 10 minutes before someone came to our table with water, and a few... More

I was craving egg plant Parmesan And meatballs so I ordered the supersized meatball appetizer which was burnt on one side ....then the entrée came out and the pasta was literally stuck together... the eggplant was at least edible... Next time I'll make it at home
