  • "The service was excellent. The wait staff was attendant and friendly. They added to the enjoyment of the dining experience. The food was served hot and was very good. Although this was the first time there, they made you feel like a regular. Even the parking lot attendant was great. He remembered me and my car when we finished dinner and left."

  • "Alba's has a pleasant ambiance, moderately busy but quiet enough for relaxed conversation, with tables very comfortably spaced. It offers a very large choice of good Italian food and very satisfactory service. Definitely worth a visit in the Port Chester area. It has it's own parking lot with valet parking when we were there."

  • "The lasagne was delicious - and recommended, but it was ruined by one server who would have preferred if we weren't there. The server made us feel like we were doing him a favor, he was so unfriendly. And whilst the lasagne was delicious $25 is a lot to be treated nonchalantly. The other servers were good and the atmosphere was fine. "

  • "As other reviews have indicated, the food, service, decor etc. are all top-notch. Drinks are pricey - $14 for a martini is not warranted and a $55 bottle of wine goes for $40 elsewhere. If you know you're going to drop the bucks, then this a terrific restaurant."

  • "I had the filet of sole, my wife had the Lasagne . Both were excellent, well prepared , with ample portions, Service was excellent and waiters and bus-boys very attentive to all customers. A little pricey on the drinks, The Kier royale , more expensive than any in the area, and the price for a cup of Green tea, way more than price for tea is in most Westcester restaurants, "

  • "The food and services is always at its best. Top restaurant in lower Westchester."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "We came here on a whim, and were not expecting such a romantic evening in a lovely setting. Best of all, the food was awesome, from beginning to end. We had the veal chop and the fusilli primavera-both were excellent. The veal chop is pounded thin and breaded-out of this world. The restaurant is very pretty and the wait staff is maybe the most attentive in lower Westchester. Benny, our waiter, was very knowledgeable and helpful, and we felt like we were the most important guests of the evening. The wine list is extensive, with many wines by the glass. The home-made limoncellos were really smooth, cold and refreshing. A perfect way to end the meal. We cannot wait to return. A true gem in Port Chester."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The food is delicious. The Caesar salad (made at the table) is the best I've ever had. I've never had a meal I was disappointed in. The pasta is always fresh and tasteful. The service is fantastic and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. This is one of the best restaurants in Westchester, bar none."

  • "In so many levels, this restaurant is one of the best starting at the door and finishing when you get your car from the valét. I particularly like yhe way you are addressed by more than 1 server, and are constantly being checked on. Its great for romance or just hood dining, you wont go wrong either way."

  • "I recently took my family to Alba's for my Mom's birthday, and our meals were quite delicious.The service was attentive, without being intrusive. The ingredients tasted fresh and adeptly prepared. My swordfish was prepared to perfection, as was my wife's Branzino. All my guests enjoyed their meal immensely. Alba's is a smart choice for solid quality italian food , served in a friendly, warm atmosphere!"

    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Our dining experience was disappointing. We sat at the bar,which was empty, for 10 minutes before being served because the bartender was overwhelmed by drink orders from the wait staff. Twenty minutes past our reservation time, I had to ask if our table was ready and was told "anytime you are..just pay the barbill first". We ended up being served by 4 different waiters so we never knew who our waiter was and at the end one of them asked if we had paid our bar bill. Was recommended one of the specials which was a pounded veal chop which was thin and dried out. About the only good thing I could say was that the décor was very nice and the staff was dressed very nicely in blue shirts with ties."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Food very good. But, noise level very high; difficult to talk at dinner and be hears; drinks were very overpriced (e.g. martini was $16.)"

  • "All the positive comments previously written about the food and the staff were confirmed. A definite for a return visit."

  • "We visited Alba's looking to enjoy a meal with our college aged daughters on break. Our party of seven was wowed right from the start. Very professional staff treated us to great service. Our water glasses never were below half empty! We had a spacious round table which was great for conversation. Every meal was delicious. We will definitely go back! Delish avacado, tomato, and hearts of palm salad, swordfish, veal, chicken, ravioli, and sea bass dinners were all very good plus the deserts were out of this world. Especially the ricotta cheesecake. Thank you Alba's for a memorable evening!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "I have never have had anything but well prepared, always hot when served, delicious very exceptional food presentations at Alba’s. The wait staff is very pleasant and help each other out so much that you need merely a look and someone is at your side. The restaurant design is most appealing with tables well separated and this all results in a most pleasant dining experience"

  • "Brought a group of 6 to Alba's. Most of us ordered the "specials" and there were alot to choose from. The caesar salad for two (which is made at your table) was one of the best I've had. Their fish specials were fantastic. The service was second to none and considering the restaurant was packed, was especially appealing. My veal chop with salad was so large that I needed to ask for a take home bag. When I got home, it was a little treat to see a fresh lemon added to the bag for another night to enjoy. It's these little special touches that make Alba's so much better than the rest. As an added bonus, when you order a drink from Alba's, you will find real alcohol and not a glass of ice. Certainly this was an evening to enjoy."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "the food was excellent, presented well, and the service was attentive. Noise level was acceptable given the fact that the dining room was virtually completely filled. We could converse with each other without strain, which is not likely in many restaurants today. We definitly plan to return shortly!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "For a quiet Tuesday night, Alba's appeared to be rather busy quietly celebrating family and couple's romantic events. As we left, I became aware there was a small corporate event hosted in the bar, which was until that moment invisible to us. The service was graceful, the setting, beautiful, and the food delicious, high quality and very well priced. We asked for a recommendation on wine and were introduced to a very, very good selection at $55. When the bill was delivered, we had had such a delicious dinner and dessert, but not overspent on wine, so we left very satisfied with our experience and not feeling we had been cheated at any point along the path. Good job, Alba. We'll be back soon."

  • "despite a wonderful dinner somehow an extra $50 appeared on our bill, which they promptly took off but ???"

  • "This is such a very nice restaurant and has a casual elegance to it without being stuffy. The food is absolutely delicious and it comes well prepared and hot to the table. There are no in between course delays which I thoroughly appreciate. The service is excellent from a most pleasant group of waiters who always seem to be helping each other. The interior of the restaurant is beautifully designed and the tables are very well spaced so you’re not sitting on top of neighbors as so often happens at other restaurants. It’s a winner all around"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "No lack of service here - very attentive and on the ball. From the appetizers to the dessert all were delicious! Prices for entrees on the high side. The waiters need to slow it down between courses, allow for a 'breathing moment' and allow time to enjoy the food. It is almost like our dinner was being timed!"
