Alba's Restaurante Ratings and Reviews
Very nice restaurant. We were looking for something different than our usual " go to" places. Food was good, Service was good. Family who owns the restaurant are very nice. It was a mature crowd. Certainly would go back but will not be a substitute for our "go to" spots.
We picked this restaurant because of the positive reviews on Open Table and we were not disappointed. The service and the food were excellent. The only issue we experienced was that it was so noisy it was hard to hear the conversation at our own table. We will definitely be back.
I didn't love Alba the way many other reviewers have. First of all, the crowd skews fairly old--there did not appear to be any couples or groups under age 60, unless they were part of a multi-generational group. It felt very Greenwich country club set to us. The service was great and the atmosphere was nice, but we (in our very early 50s) felt out of place. This is not a place with a lively vibe. The food was mixed--my husband's fish special was very good but my veal saltimbocca was disappointing. Not sure I will go back.
Arrived for our reservation and hostess told my husband and brother that shorts were not allowed, but that they would seat us this one time. It was 85 degrees out and they were wearing polos and tailored shorts. Found this very off putting, especially as their site does not mention anything about a dress code and many other patrons were wearing shorts.
Asked for wine by the glass menu and was told by server to just ask for what I wanted. Having no clue about their selection and without any menu I asked for 2 pretty basic wines which they didn't have. Realizing this exercise was not going well the waiter finally started listing some options that he did have. FWIW Their list includes wines from outside Italy.
Delicious Northern Italian menu. This is the kind of food I grew up on so for me this is comfort food at its best. Standouts for us were:
Table side made caesar salad not only for the fact that most places don't do table side anymore, but it was a really good Ceasar
Whole roasted branzino (de-boned table side) which had a lovely lemon pernod sauce if you are so inclined
Veal chop recommended by the waiter
We'll definitely go back.
We ate at Alba's the evening of June 10, 2017. It took about 25 minutes to get there from where we live. The atmosphere is lively and frenetic. All the tables were occupied except for a small table seating two. The wait staff was attentive. There were many specials and regular menu items to choose from. I ordered a special. It was a thinly pounded veal chop Milanese topped with salad and tomatoes. It was very good. My husband ordered shrimp fra diavolo. It wasn't as spicy as he likes it but still good. We had coffee but no dessert. I would recommend this restaurant.
Albas is a great choice for a date, night out with friends or a family dinner. The menu has something for every one, with a lengthy selection of pastas, pizzas, fish and meats. The quality of the food is excellent - highly recommend the Parmesan crusted halibut and saving room for the desserts. I find desserts at Italian restaurants are usually nothing to write home about but Albas desserts are decadent and delicious. The waiters aim to please and are very attentive. Highly recommend coming here!
