About

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

Haven't been to this classic in a while and happy to say it never disappoints. The service is outstanding, the attention to detail and pleasing the customer is their number one priority.

I won't let so much time pass before my next visit.

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.

Had a holiday dinner there with my family. The service and food were truly outstanding and they accommodated all 12 of us including several kids without missing a beat.

Not your typical NYC Italian-American food. Has old style taste and recipes. Service was excellent and made us welcome.

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.

Excellent Queens Italian Restaurant. The host family treats you like their family and really make you feel special. The gentleman host brought us a new bottle of wine when he felt the first one didn't look just right in my glass even though I didn't say anything when I tasted it. I recommend Alberto's highly.

Alberto's is a Queens staple. If you like Italian food this is the perfect location. A historic restaurant in Forest Hills with a classic, authentic food selection. The specials rivals the size of the regular menu and everything is amazing.

Definitely recommend the Trio de Funghi appetizer, you'll want to come back for it.
