A word from Alberto's Ristorante
Alberto's Ristorante was established in 1984 at which time, Northern Italian cuisine and fresh homemade pasta were introduced to Cape Cod for the first time. Since then, we have continued this tradition of all fresh ingredients and in-house preparation of every course from the soups to the desserts.

Our reputation for casual elegance arises from our emphasis on decor, service, the pride we take in food preparation, and our affordability. Over the years, we have received rave reviews from food critics from the Cape Cod Times, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, Cape Cod Life Magazine, Fodor's, AAA, and New York Times critic James Beard for "...exquisite Northern Italian cuisine". Our lounge is the perfect setting for a before dinner cocktail, an after dinner espresso, or an even more casual meal. .

  • "Greeted cordially, seated quickly in a booth. People came by to pour water and leave bread. We then sat for more than 20 minutes as a steady stream of waitstaff walked back and forth past us, all the while with no acknowledgement from anyone. My husband finally went to reception to let them know what was happening and our server appeared, apologizing for our wait and said she had other tables. She took our drink order and when I questioned her about additions to the menu, she said I would have to wait until she came back. We waited an additional 10 minutes before requesting to be moved to another table. Our server there was better, but I still had to ask him about menu additions myself. The food was fantastic; the staff needs some training"

  • "We ordered a bottle of wine and when our server poured it - we noticed that two of our glasses had lipstick stains on them - GROSS!! We told him this and he picked up the glasses and examined them for a full 30 seconds - like he didn't believe us -then walked away. He came back with 2 glasses and one still had lipstick still on it!!! Not a good experience!!!"

  • "In Hyannis for a week's stay. Found Alberto's on line and Hotel recommended them. Table was ready for our reserved time. Caesar salad one of the best I ever had. We had pasta dishes and they were both great. I had Ragu, my girlfriend had gnocchi. If you're on the Cape, This great Italian Restorante, right on Main St. , is worth the trip to Hyannis."

  • "Visit date = 5/23/14. Outstanding Northern Italian cuisine. By leaps and bounds the best Italian food on Cape Cod. Great deals from 4-6 pm with the fixed price specials. Try the Lamb Osso Bucco in a Barolo wine reduction - the best I've had!"

  • "The food we had was very good. My husband had the clam chowder and shrimp scampi while I had the veal picatta. He said his was very good and would definitely come again. Mine tasted very good though the veal was a little chewy. We also had a drink as well. We are not drinkers so our opinion may differ greatly. He chose a gin and tonic and said it was very good. Just the right mixture. I had a white Russian and was also very good. For dessert he chose the apple crisp and I had the Alberto cheesecake with chocolate sauce instead of the raspberry sauce. We both liked our desserts a lot. "

  • "Salad and warm bread with olive oil are served with entrees, both were good. I had lobster ravioli with requested marinara sauce, my husband had veal parm. Both came with a nice portion of sauce (some places seem to skimp on the sauce). Delicious! Hope to return! "

  • "Our meals were very tasty, prepared and presented with care. We both tried two different items on the menu this visit. The Cannelloni, which received no complaints and Beef and Mushroom ravioli with a demi-glace sauce--delicious. Our server was attentive, but did not hover. Overall a very nice experience this visit.

  • "I had never been to Alberto's before but I won a meal there through the Classical Radio station on Cape Cod. The food was truly outstanding. We had fried calamari, a divine cheese plate, scrod that melted in your mouth, and a steak that I was told was excellent. Their desserts were also fantastic- we tried the tiramisu and chocolate mousse and were in heaven! The waitress was friendly, helpful and attentive, and my only complaint was that the man who was apparently in charge of water and the dessert menu basically forgot us half way through the meal. Overall it was a magical meal and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for fantastic food or a special occasion dinner spot."

  • "My wife and I along with two other couples went to celebrate a trio of birthdays. Alberto's has a great wine list, good "Martini" selections and an extensive menu. They had a Prix Fixe of salad/appetizer, entree and dessert. There were many good selections from their extensive menu. Beef, pork, chicken, pasta and seafood. I had an arugula salad with almonds and goat cheese. Very fresh and nice tangy dressing that did not drown the greens. Had the Pork Osso Buco which as awesome. My wife had beef short ribs which shared the same rich sauce. Desserts were excellent. Had spumoni and wife had chocolate trio which was three-times good! Service was outstanding!"

  • "Three of us had a terrific dinner this past weekend. We had different appetizers, entrees and dessert and all were delicious. The service was impeccable. We felt very well taken care of and the atmosphere was relaxing and pleasant. They have very nice seating options so are able to handle groups without creating noise and distractions for smaller groups. We've visited the restaurant at different points over the years and appreciate that the quality of the food and service remains high. This was our first time going for the sunset special which is a fabulous deal. I hope they'll continue, although we probably won't want to go early once the weather is better!"

  • "Alberto's has a certain "feel" and a very repeatable experience. It's usually quiet, relaxed and accomodating. The food is good to very good, provided you like their take on Italian. I do. The wine list is well thought out and though not huge, a nice compliment to the menu. The one nagging problem I have: every time I order a bottle of wine, I'm presented with a vintage at least one year younger. This wouldn't be an issue if they would point it out and offer a discount. They don't. I have to point it out and often a discount still isn't offered. While not a deal breaker, it's not very customer focused. I'm a year-rounder. Maybe putting butts in seats isn't a problem in the summer, but it's a loooong winter and there's plenty of competition."

  • "If u go in the front, that is actually the wrong way. U need to go in the side entrance- i think they need a bigger sign. We walked through to the host and as we stood there someone else came in and walked in front of us and got seated first. Very odd! The dinner was very good, but a bit pricey! Would probably go back for an occassion"
