  • "This restaurant knows what it is doing in the kitchen. Food was superb, and the early dining special was a terrific deal."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our first experience at Alberto's. Didn't take advantage of the Early Bird so our meal was a little pricey, but the food was superb. If you get the ice cream/sorbet for dessert, it is defintely shareable. 4 regular sized scoops of your choice. I had the butternut ravioli and it was wonderful as was the prosciutto appetizer. All in all an excellent evening and we will definitely plan to visit again."

  • "Nice dinner spot. The interior is very nice with tables and booths. They also have outdoor dining. The food is really good. I liked my pasta with bolognese sauce. The service was very polite, but slow."

  • "I was surprised that during a slow night with less than 10 tables seated that the service would be so lacking, our waiter was quite pleasant but appeared to only have to Waite on two or three tables and still needed to be waived to in order to take our orders. There are many restaurants with both excellent food and service I would dine at before returning to this restaurant."

  • "Went for our anniversary. The early bird special is a great deal. Appetizer, entrée and glass of wine. Good selection of entrees. Wine was "OK". Homemade pasta...you can really taste the difference!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Alberto's food was very good, though probably not the best choice for me with my two young daugthers. The atmosphere and the menu were a tad sophisticated for their palate. Everyone enjoyed, but some of the finer points of the dinner were lost on the kids. It was a rainy Monday night...so things were slow."

  • "To preface this review, My wife has a Sicilian background, so the bar is set high.. First, Fabian has been with Alberto's from the onset, He is the "wine man", his knowledge of Alberto's hand pick "true Italian" wine is immaculate. The QPR (quality to price ratio) of their wines is one of the reasons we frequent Alberto's. We loved the $98 Amarone . The staff we encountered all this week were all from Italy and went out of their way to speak the language to my wife, adding to the romance of this place. Rocco, was a stand out, and had calamari prepared as his mother made for him (off menu) such emotion in their food. Lamb, pasta with crab, and sea bass were stand outs for us. Don't forget to ask Fabian about after dinner ports!"

  • "Wonderful Veal Ravioli, cooked perfectly! Mushroom soup was fragrant and delicious. Bronzini grilled to perfection with a hint of lemon and oil oil. Great service and love going off season."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "This was a return visit to Alberto's as we found the menu very much ot our liking with finest ingredients and carefully prepared by the chef-owner. If you like pasta, it is made fresh daily. It has the taste and texture you would expect. My personal favorite is the 7 0z lobster tail perfectly poached and sliced over tortellini filled with fresh corn and herbs. It is sort of a Northern Italian version of a New England Clam Bake featuring corn and lobster. Fabian, sommellier/bar tender, introduced us to an Emilio Moro, a Spanish red made from the Tempranillo grape that we never had before. It was $65 and went very well with my lobster and other entrees. As it is off season, there are early/late dining bargains, too. "

  • "My black ink fettuccine with calamari was excellent as were the salads. My wife felt her pasta with lump crab meat lacked seasoning (including some salt). Bread was outstanding."

  • "Excellent restraunt. Early dining menu a great value at 18.99 with a glass of decent wine. Limited menu but food and service are great. This is the 3rd time we ate there and have enjoyed it every time. One of the better early dining meus in Naples."

  • "Loved everything about this restaurant!! Food was wonderful and perfect in portion size. "Rocco" our waiter was incredible. A REAL Italian Gentlemen. Early bird specials are a real deal for this type of restaurant (before 6:15 pm or after 8:30). Will go back again on my next vacation to Naples area."

  • "We return again and again as Alberto has the best Northern Italian fare to be had in the region. Doubtless, he would be a success in any city where there are discerning diners. We thought it would not be crowded as we had our pre-concert meal early, but it quickly filled with happy diners, many of whom we observed were regulars. Fabio, senior bar tender and part-time host, made his deliciously unique Mojito and helped our overseas visitors with wine by the glass. Chef Alberto was quick to help us with a combination appetizer as well as a main course pasta sampler. Our guests were very pleased. I had his highly praised poached, sliced lobster tail over corn ravioli, a Northern Italian version of a NE Clam Bake. It was perfect! "

  • "This was our second visit in two weeks....that says it all. With many super restaurants in this city you just don't go back twice in two weeks unless it really stands out as being special."

  • "My wife and I went to Alberto's for the first time last weekend. From the moment we were greeted by Ivan we knew we were in good hands. Our waiter, Ademar, was very attentive and worked with me on my various food allergies to insure my selection addressed the issues. Chef Alberto accommodated my tricky diet and made me perfect tasty white fish that was great . My caprese was wonderful as the burrata was incredible. My wife's appetizer and fish selection was also spot on. Great evening - great food - good ambiance - great staff. A must on our top restaurant list for Naples."

  • "The chef is Italian, and the taste is nothing short of amazing! This is wonderful food, that you take the time to enjoy. We had the 1. scallops and 2. mussels for appetizers. 3 scallops came and were prepared perfectly! The bowl of mussels was delicious as well! We both had different kinds of very mild flavored fish for our entrees and they both tasted great and were well portioned. I think both of our entrees came with 2 ítems on the plate (fish & a side), along with beautiful "extras". Any and all ítems were explained thoroughly by our waiter so we would have a full understanding of what we were ordering - great service! Very intricate and beautiful plates of food served here!"

  • "Amazing food and good portions. Truly authentic Italian. Highly recommended. We had Moreno serving us and he was great. Not sure if it was the Mgr or owner but another person a few times came up to us and asked if everything was ok and if there was anything he can do. This was top notch service"

  • "Friends & I visited Naples-we decided on Alberto's on the last night. Made an 8:30 rez & said we would LOVE to sit outside. Upon arrival, we saw tables had just been seated outside, BUT it would be 20 mins before we could be seated-so we opted to sit at the bar. After 1 HR & bottle of wine, we were finally seated.Outside area was nearly empty (couple with TWO dogs sitting AT the table was finishing up). 15 min went by before anyone came. Server simply said:"any questions about the menu."...appalled, we ordered drinks and dinner, & waited FOREVER for our food. Other tables were eating before us, even though they came off the street. Food was good, but I had never seen such awful service, ever. Our last night was memorable, but not special."

  • "Unlike most Italian restaurants here, there are actually Italians working at Alberto's which is nice to see. The food is always good and the service as well. The Veal Marsala was done with three beautiful tender veal medallions, but sadly the Marsala flavor was missing this time. It was still tasty and had many mushrooms in the sauce. The restaurant gave us a free dessert after we mentioned this and they were very apologetic. We love dining outside and their outdoor area is very pleasant and quieter than inside. We eat out most nights and have been to this restaurant many times and surely will return again."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "Some of the reviews were true about the lack of good service. We saw our waiter talking at length with people at the next table, when he should have been attending to our needs and those of others. The manager(or person in charge that evening) came to our table to see that we had been taken care of when he saw that we had no food or drinks. However, later we saw him outside talking to friends (who were walking by) at great length. So, I would say this restaurant needs to have a talk with their staff!!!! The Chilean sea bass was very nicely cooked, but the mushroom sauce overpowered the delicate fish. The snapper was a generous piece, but it too, had a sauce that was too heavy for the delicate fish. Nice ambiance."

  • "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. "
