Diner Reviews
  • "Last season we dined here and had a good meal with friends. We were so disappointed last Saturday evening with guests new to Naples. The service was worse than poor. It took 20 min before anyone even asked for our drink order. We had to ask to have someone take our dinner order. Then again with dessert. To get a refill on a cup of coffee was an ordeal as well. The quality of the food was fair and lukewarm. "

  • "Our first time to Alberto's was a big disappointment. While the ambiance is wonderful, the service was not. We arrived at 7:00 pm and were finally served our main course at 9:30! The lamb was under cooked and the fish was only warm. Our waiter, while charming, was invisible most of the evening. We will not be returning."

  • "We sent to Alberto's for Easter dinner and had a wonderful time! All of the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The bartender came over personally to talk to us about the drinks we were ordering and our waiter was very helpful (we had kids, so we asked for a half portion of one of the pastas which he did even though it wasn't on the menu. I would love to go back and wish I lived closer so I could!"

  • "Bread was good. Mushroom soup ok. Salad ok. I had the pesto pasta w crab.my wife had a ravioli special. Not very exciting menu. Drinks from bartender were excellent. Waiter terrible did not have any suggestions on menu items and came to our table once never refilled water never asked if like pepper or cheese. He was American most other speaking Italian. Friday night lots of empty seats is a sign..place aqua next door packed and buzzing wish we went there, next time."

  • "We had a delicious dinner at Alberto's. The food was amazing - fresh and high quality ingredients across the board. I was very impressed. We eat on Fifth reluctantly and it's usually mediocre but this was different. Will definitely go back! "

  • "Our food was amazing, however it was very loud and when the musician came to a neighboring table we couldn't have a conversation until he left. Although the waiter was very nice the service was slow, think he had tables outside as well as inside. The food was absolutely delicious though. Will wait until off season to go back."

  • "There are many nice restaurants in Naples on 5th Avenue and sometimes its hard to select which one to go to.....If you want a nice quiet classy place that is reasonable with excellent Italian cuisine then go to Alberto's. Everyone was friendly and very, very accommodating..... Its a must when you are on 5th to at least go once despite the large number of choices you have.....this is A+++++++"

  • "Dinner for four was excellent. Let's start with Moreno's service. As a weekly diner of 4-5 star restaurants, it has been my experience that Moreno provides the best service of any staff we have encountered. Moreno seems to anticipate our needs and wishes, and makes recommendations accordingly. He is one of a kind, sincerely dedicated to serving. As for the kitchen, all four meals were excellent. I had the bronzino (similar to a bass with less fat). It was prepared perfectly. Others had the tortelloni with lobster tail, the angelotti di ricotta (pillow shaped pasta stuffed with spinach and ricotta), and the special ribeye, paired with a valpolicella ripasso (very reasonable "baby amamrone"). Enjoyed by all. Superb."

  • "In my humble opinion, Alberto's is the absolute best Italian restaurant in Naples. We are early bird diners and Alberto's offers wonderful meals at early bird prices. The shrimp and beet appetizer is outstanding - any pasta on menu will make your mouth water - try the mushroom taglierini with seared scallops is to die for! Alberto's is a sophisticated looking restaurant with plenty of room between tables and the service is excellent! FastEddie"

  • "We were a party of 8 and normally one or two people would be having a problem with a meal or service, but our entire group thought everything was wonderful--and we all ordered different appetizers and entrees! A lovely evening we will repeat!"

  • "Booked throughout Open Table where Early Menu was listed until 6:30 pm. Made reservation for 6:00pm. When we ordered we were told by restaurant only until 5:30 pm. Had to speak with manager who was reluctant but finally agreed to honor early dining menu as advertised on Open Table web site. Restaurant told us that Open Table web site was in error. This should not be diners problem who in good faith made reservation via Open Table reservation system."

  • "This was our second visit to Albertos and again we were not disappointed! The food, wine, dessert and coffee were delicious. We all had the Italian food and were not disappointed. The service was excellent and Andemar, our capable waiter, was very effecient and personable. A wonderful evening with great food and great company!"

  • "On the evening of April 4, 2014, we had dinner outside at Alberto's. We had been to Albeto's numerous times and had always found the restaurant to be excellent, however, this particular night we had a surly sever whose attitude ruined the evening. We complained to the manager on three separate occassions and waited a minimum of one hour and forty five minutes after ordering to have our entrees served. While the manager attempted to correct the situation, our dinner orders were not correct. Chances of us returning to Alberto's are remote."

  • "We have been to Alfredo's before and booked using Open Table for a pre-show dinner. There was an early AlFresco Prix Fix dinner menu, which was perfect. The menu was served til 6:30, according to Open Table. We arrived at 6;15 and requested the menu. the server and manager both told us that it was only available until 5:30 that night. I showed him the Open Table reservation and that menu. He refused to honor it and offered us a glass of house wine. A total turnoff. We could not believe the manager's lack of customer service, which was to offer the menu this one time, then contact Open Table. We were so annoyed that we left, went to another restaurant and had a lovely dinner. Naples has lots of restaurants who value their clients, find one!"

  • "Alberto's does more than serve great Italian food, they make you feel as if you've stepped into a favorite neighborhood bistro even if you have never been there before! We were warmly welcomed by Evan, the host, and attentively served by Rocco, our waiter. The roasted scallops and mushrooms over pasta were heavenly. We will be back again and again. After sampling many of the restaurants Naples has to offer, our dining experience. At Alberto's is my favorite."

  • "Food was not great and our two dishes had the same exact sauce. I had snapper and it was very bland and the bad sauce covered up any flavor the fish may of had. My date had stuffed ravioli and it was not good either. It is a very loud place so I would not recommend it for a date where you want to talk."

  • "This was definitely one of the best meals we have had in Naples. The food was excellent, the service fantastic and the teramasu mouthwatering.."

  • "I dine out constantly. I love food and expect decent service. Alberto's exceeds every expectation every single time I'm there. The spinach salad and the pork chop are my favorite choices but the fish is always excellent the home made pastas are a blessing from heaven. Cannot gush enough about this place. Don't bother reading the wine list. Let the very knowledgable staff take care of that. It'll be on the money every time. The chef-owner is such a lovely person and all that is under their roof shows this. Thank you Alberto's!!"

  • "Great food - great service - great ambiance! This is my favorite 'Italian' in Naples - I have been here many times and have always come away giving rave reviews. Since I am a 'geezer' we prefer to dine early and the Early Bird is the best value in town."

  • "We have been to Albertos on several occasions. The service was significantly slower this time. We were also disappointed with the carpaccio- one of our go to appetizers. It was dried beef rather than freshly sliced beef. Otherwise the food was excellent."

  • "We were extremely disappointed that the waitress did not offer the early dining menu even though we were there during the early dining time. ONLY after we asked about the early dining menu, did she bring it to us. By then, we had already ordered a drink. The early dining menu includes a glass of wine. Had we known that, we would not have ordered the drink before dinner. That episode put a damper on the entire evening. We were very upset over it and I'm not anxious to go back there because of that. The restaurant should have brought us both menus when we sat down. I felt they wanted us to pay as much as they could get out of us."

  • "There were 3 in our party. It was a very busy in-season Friday night but the staff was very attentive. Every single dish we ordered (particularly the veal) was superb. The sauces were inspirational. The desserts were worth every single calorie - we had the tiramisu with zabaglione and the limoncello with lemon gelato. Unbelievable! Don't miss this restaurant if you are in Naples - fight the crowds, it is worth it!"

My husband said No I guess the table was better than the street. Our waiter had way too many tables & water was at a snails pace."

From the bread basket to appetizers to entrees to dessert, everything was delicious (try the tira misu, so surprisingly light and delicate but still satisfyingly rich). Our waiter, Lewis was personable and professional and a real asset to the restaurant. Will definitely return."

  • "Most in our party raved about the food. The wine list was steep. Mostly the issue was the noise level. We had a party of five, and we had to shout. The traveling violin serenador made it worse. I find that intrusive. Service was very good. Perhaps the few outdoor tables would have been more pleasant."
