First time to Alba's and it was an all round very good experience! Food was generally all very good with the exception of the fried calamari which was very dry and thus extremely tough. We assume it was cooked just a little too long but the seasoning/flavor was very good. Pastas were the highlight of the meal. Will definitely return to give them another go.

The staff was fantastic, the food all around was fresh and delicious and our two entrees, veal Milanese and homemade lasagna Bolognese were two of the best authentic Italian dishes I have tasted anywhere in the area. I highly recommend Alba’s for an authentic Italian dining experience all around.

We love Alba's. The best ceasar salad anywhere and the entrees are always carefully prepared and delicious. We also love the breadsticks. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and always make sure we are comfortable and well taken care of.

Not nearly as good as the last time we were there. No olives, Parmesan, etc., when we sat down. Caesar salad was much too heavily dressed and had much too much lemon and lemon pits. Very disappointing.

Rush, rush, rush. Plates were removed BEFORE we finished eating! The staff was running around as if it was 1am and they were cleaning up to go home... yet it was 730pm! We were seated and ate in 40 minutes... The food... We asked which pasta was fresh vs ‘out of a box’, and
despite us asking, the pasta that was supposed to be ‘home made’, was clearly not.... nor was it good at all. To be fair, the Bronzino was very good. We won’t go back.

From pasta to fish, with an occasional meat dinner, Alba’s has never failed to be an absolute delight. The wait staff is very pleasant, and attentive. No waiter in the room will refuse a glance from you for some service. Food courses have always been most appropriate in timing and served hot, evidence of how well run the kitchen is. It’s just an overall pleasure to dine here.

Figs with prosciutto followed by an absolutely perfect Branzino, boned and served tableside, was another outstanding dinner that this restaurant is able to put together. Service is excellent and pleasant as the waiters are all “your waiter”. Fish is always served hot so it comes from the pan to table in minutes. Just a great place, especially for fish.

Excellent service and the food was delicious. We recommend the baked clams, Caesar salad and the Halibut. We had drinks appetizers and dessert so the bill came out a little high but it was a special occasion. Well worth it especially for a special get together!

Food was very good Northern Italian. I was little disappointed with my Gazpacho. Pureed, without enough chunks of fresh veggies for my taste. Seasoning was good, however. My veal was excellent. I didnt try the pasta but it looked very good. Ditto for the Risotto. Waiters got most of the dishes right but at this price point they need to do a better job of remembering who gets what.

As expected the food was delicious!
Unfortunately, while the service was adequate, it was often slow in response and the waiter who was responsible for us was lacking in personal attention. I had mentioned it was our mother’s birthday and yet there was no candle on her dessert or birthday greeting or wish of happy birthday to her -disappointing that some attention could have been paid to her.

Everything was great EXCEPT the dining room is very noisy!

The waiters have to SHOUT to be heard, meaning you hear every special like 6 times as they bellow above the noise.

Maybe some low music to set a better ambiance.

We were at a table on the side and sitting next to each other. At the middle tables or sitting across from each other I would not have ben able to have a conversation.

The meal was very good. Everything was tasty and flavorful. Portions were on the small side, but we all had enough room for dessert and that was impeccable.
Every staff member was pleasant, funny, didn't rush us and I would like to include the valet parking attendant.
I think it is great to sit at a round table. Our reservations were 6:00 on a Saturday which turned out great as we were able to hear each other. When we left, the room was very noisy

Our party of 9 had a wonderful time at Albs's. It was my Dad's 88th birthday and the staff was very attentive to him and to every one in our group. The food was delicious, not one complaint which is a miracle with so many people. The Calamari was outstanding and the baked clams. The veal Saltimboca melted in your mouth, the special of the day was stuffed ravioli with chicken outstanding! The coconut cream pie is delish along with all the desserts. I think we tried everything on the cart. Can't say enough about the staff they were just the best.
