Diner Reviews
  • "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, "

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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 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"

  • "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."

  • "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.)"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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 ???"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Alba's is a very nice place. A little strange that the valet insisted on parking my car when the lot was empty, but ok. The bar was a nice atmosphere, though $15 for a drink is steep. The restaurant is a little big, so the noise level is medium high. There was also a door slamming repeatedly on the other side of the wall we were next to towards the back. Not sure if it was the kitchen, but it was a little annoying. The waiter seemed to be going through the motions and service was a little slow, but understandable on Valentine's Day....I guess. Food selections was good, and presentation was nice, no complaints."

  • "What a great restaurant!! The food was absolutely amazing. The fried calamari was perfect - not greasy at all, hot and crisp. I had the tuna entree special - cooked to perfection and the sides were delicious. My guest had the fusilli primavera - and said it was delicious. The staff was excellent. We felt attended to, but not rushed. Overall, I would highly recommend Alba's - what a wonderful night!!"

  • "Have to say all was great. My wife and I dined with another couple. All started with stone crab and they were perfect. Main course 3 of us the fish special, Branzino that was out of this world. Cooked to perfection and fileted table side. Other dish was the Halibut which they enjoyed very much. Service was royal. Great food and service can't be beat."

  • "I am very particular with my food. For the appetizer I had little necks with a cocktail sauce. Absolutely fresh and delicious. I ordered the sautéed Bronzino and escarole. A nice and simple "clean" dish. I finished it all. Just an after thought....we we're there for 3.5 hours and we're never rushed by the staff."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "Alba's menu is eclectic with something for everyone. The food it good but very expensive. A very tasty, albeit small, piece of halibut was $32. Oysters were fresh and the antipasto starter was ok. Desserts were good. Wine list is diverse but if you are offered a special wine by the glass ask the price! You are better off buying the bottle."

  • "My family and I spent Christmas Eve at Alba We had such delicious food and found ourselves wondering why we hadn't done this before. No dishes, no stress! The food was great and I plan to return. It was very busy on Christmas Eve which was understandable. So happy to see that it is so kid friendly."

  • "What a great choice coming here Sat. evening. Very attractive place with fireplace going on a cold night. Impeccable service. Immediately asked if we wanted a drink after being seated. We started with the Caesar salad for 2 made table side. One of the best we ever had. My husband asked if they would make chicken parm w/linguini, as it was not on the menu. Without hesitation they said yes. That also was one of the best. I had the swordfish special w/broccoli rabe, also delicious. A lot of excellent choices on menu and specials. The dessert cart looked amazing but we decided to pass. Can't wait to return here."

  • "We had a 7:30 pm reservation. Maître di was disorganized and didn't to have a record of our reservation, although she "remembered seeing it." After misspelling my name, an indication she had never seen it before, she told us we'd have to wait ten minutes; we waited over forty minutes, while people who came in after us were seated. It was not a pleasant experience as the restaurant clearly couldn't handle the large volume of customers when we arrived. Waiter service was fine and pleasant. Food was good, not great, as they ran out if one of the specials by 8:30. Would like to go back on a less busy night to see if service/food is better."
