Alberto has been a neighborhood institution for over 35 years.
Owners, Silvana & Roberto Chiappelloni, originally from Piacenza, Italy, have always believed that good food should not be outrageously expensive and that good wines are meant to be enjoyed. Alberto's menu offers spirited versions of home-cooked dishes from the Emilia-Romagna, Lombardy and Ligurian provinces.
Alberto's offers a welcoming and friendly atmosphere from the moment you walk through the door. The bar area is resplendent with an antique mahogany bar, fireplace and large open mahogany doors. Frosted glass and wrought iron chandeliers hang overhead. The souring oak-beamed ceiling is artfully enclosed by exposed brick walls, skylight and colorful artist-signed prints which provide warmth and a delightful sense of coziness.
While many NYC eateries have a reputation for highbrow dining, there remains a warm and familial culinary treasure in Forest Hills, Queens.
Come and join us at Alberto. Buon Appetito
Silvana, Giovanni and the gang came through once again. Whether ordering from the menu or from the endless "specials" they keep inventing, it's always delicious, relaxed and served with style and care. Our favorite place, bar none.
The staff. EVERYONE is so friendly. The owner always says Thank you on exit. Just such a lovely ambiance and pleasant staff. The food is very good. Just one dish I had that didn't wow me. But was not terrible in any way. But, I will continuously come back...I plan to try every dish.
metered parking until 7pm on Metropolitan Avenue & plentiful side street parking as well.
