Alberto's on Fifth
His culinary interpretations emphasize seasonal ingredients, while creatively respecting the great traditions of Italian gastronomy.
The glory of Italian cooking is fresh ingredients, served at their peak, and handled in a way that flatters, rather than masks, their personalities.

Employees wear no face masks. I won't go there if I'm not fully vaccinated. Major reason we haven't been to Naples (city) for a whole year! We sat outdoor. Good value for early bird specials. Food is always good.
Very nice, service was a little slow.
The only reason this got two stars and not one is that the food was excellent....that is if you ever got any food.... and the fact that after we suffered through a terrible waiter for two hours and finally sought the manager, he apologized and gave us a gift certificate for a portion of the value of our meal. We watched table after table get up and leave after waiting 30 to 45 minutes with no service. We had guests with us so we stuck it out. Manager explained that several of his wait staff had left and it was impossible to find additional wait staff to hire. He himself was tending bar all night that we were there so was not able to properly supervise the staff. This restaurant ( and possible others in the area) has a labor shortage. I do not see that being corrected in the next couple of weeks. If we go back, ti will be in the middle of the week when hopefully the crowd will be smaller and they will be able to handle the customers that they have.
Always a good value for the quality and ask for Anthony for your waiter!
Totally enjoyed my Mother’s Day at Albertos.
We have been to Alberto's in the past and enjoyed it. As at our last visits, it did not disappoint and our friends who joined us for dinner were also very pleased with their meals.
Sophia was wonderful. Her enthusiasm was so fun/ Our food was delicious. It is not often that we find Agnolotti on the menu and it was such a treat. My Husband loved his veal medallions. Very happy that we came to Alberto's on our vacation.
The service is horrible. This is the second time we have gone there, and the service was awful. We sat for a while until we got a waitress. Then, she takes too long to bring anything, and keeps passing us. And, after all that, she brings the wrong drink. I'm very disappointed. They need better or more help.
Food was awesome. Did early dining special and was excel!!
Classy restaurant and an excellent value for early dining.
The early bird menu and à la carte are great. The only negative was never offered grated cheese, pepper or any additional. As the server went by quickly asked if everything was ok.
Excellent experience, as always. Antonio’s service was superlative!! Cant wait to go back.
We love Alberto's and dine here every time we're in Naples! Food, atmosphere and service are all consistently excellent, which is why we keep returning!
Our waitress (wish I remembered her name) was very rude. I had to confront her to get her attention. The food was good. It was a bit loud.
Wait staff was DEFINITELY OVERWORKED to cause POOR service. Management must be criticized for very dismal service. Decent food cannot overcome a bad experience.
Would not go back.
Dined outdoors. Very pleasant evening with attentive service and delicious food. We would recommend and will return.
7 of us had dinner, with reservation, and everything was good but the service was poor. We had to wait long periods of time between courses. The waiter never came to the table to present the dessert menu. We had to call him to get our check.
Great menu! The Early Bird is an exceptional value!
Mussel appetizer was plentiful and excellent. Plenty of warm bread… Went during early menu pricing so value was excellent. Entrees could have been a smidge bigger but excellent taste etc. A bit noisy where we were seated near the bar area. Service was great.
We went for the early dinning and the menu choices were varied and many to chose from.
Portions were the same as if we were eating during regular dining hours.
Have always enjoyed eating at Alberto's
We came to Alberto’s on the recommendation of a friend. We arrived early for a 7:30 reservation that I requested an outdoor table for. The women maitre de was not welcoming and bordered on rude. She said there was not a table available outdoors and wasn’t sure when one would be available. The wait staff seemed stressed and a waiter commented to me that they were understaffed. We did get seated outdoors and enjoyed a delicious meal. Our waiter was good. Fifth Avenue is always bustling and fun to visit!
I have never walked out of a restaurant before ever. The service was so horrible I was embarrassed to have taken guests there. Sat for 10 minutes and no one came by. When we asked for a server they were arguing who was going to take the table in Italian. We speak Italian. Ten more minutes and no drinks have been ordered yet. We spoke to server and said we were thinking of leaving. He said go ahead. Walked across the street and had a wonderful dinner at Chops. We were told the day before that Albertos had gone downhill and that person was correct. Horrible
Our sons birthday
Great value for delicious food. Salads were a standout. Stayed for dessert even though it was not apart of “the deal”.
Appreciated the early dining specials
Good except experience except for service level. Had to chase down the elusive waiter a couple times.
We had a reservation and were seated immediately. After nearly 20 minutes of not even being greeted I asked a trainee waiter to provide us with water and told him we’d like to start with a bottle of wine. He got us the water and another ten minutes went by without anyone coming back. At that point we (five of us) got up and walked down the block to Osteria Tulia and had an amazing dining experience.
You really blew it.
Great food... wine by the glass IMO over priced. Other than that an enjoyable experience overall.
We enjoyed a beautiful meal and wine served by a charming wait staff. Because the evening was very hot, many diners chose to be indoors, ourselves included. The noise level was our only complaint/
Went on a Tuesday night and sat outside. I was there 1-1/2 hours and managed to order 1 cocktail and a caprese salad. I cannot blame the waiter, he was doing the best he could do under the circumstances. They were so understaffed that it would have been better if they had just limited their seating. While I was sitting and waiting, I watched 3 different tables get up and leave! It was such a disappointment because Alberto's is one of my very favorite restaurants in Naples. Will give it another try, but not anytime soon. Will wait until Naples becomes a little less "populated".
Antonio the waiter was in over his head. Little attempt to our table, never offered drink refills and stacked all our tickets for us to figure out for ourselves.
a bit noisy but great service our guy was Victor is awesome. Get reservations, it just guarantees a table because there are lots of people trying to get in’
The food was fabtastic
Service was awful. Took forever to get water and a pop refill. Waiter kept saying they were really busy but there were empty tables everywhere. Once my food finally came my steak was Raw. I mean raw. The manager and waiter were unapologetic and flat out rude and didn't care to hear my complaint. First time there and will not be back.
The food and service were outstanding. Our table outside was close to the street so the auto and motorcycle noise kept our rating from being five stars all the way.
The traffic noise at times was deafening, which is NOT the restaurants fault. With all of the lovely side walk cafe’s on 5th street, it’s a wonder why the city of Naple’s hasn’t cracked down on the excessive car & motorcycle muffler noise & the extremely loud blaring music coming from passing cars??
We have been here many times. We love the place.
But I have to say Victor our waiter had no personality. In a hurry. No greeting. Spit out the specials..which we didn't hear and were afraid to ask again.
It continued to the point our group just kept laughing at how bad he was.
The food superb.
Food and ambiance was amazing but our server was horrible. We literally felt like we were bothering him every time we needed anything. Including just putting in our order.
Slow check in process. Hostess did not communicate wait time (even tho we had a reservation) clearly, no beeper or text process.
Waiter frazzled because it was so busy. Delayed in getting to us.
Food was spectacular. Total time in seats 2.5 hours. Too long.
NO ONE is in charge at this restaurant. There is no manager or owner or anyone with half a brain that can help you if you have a problem. The hostess during our visit was useless as was the bartender. They simply DO NOT care about you or your experience. We were promised a table outside and when we arrived there was no outdoor seating available. I even spoke to a human before we arrived and told them we specifically wanted to sit outside. When I asked if they would move two small tables together outdoors, they refused. As for the food, it was loaded with salt ... a bad chef's answer to flavor. My martini was just as bad. How do you ruin a martini? That said, I drank the whole thing because I was so angry at the way we were treated. There are enough tourists in Naples that this restaurant doesn't need to care and it shows. I will never go back and do not recommend. Stay away!! There are so many other places in Naples to eat that actually want your business and will try hard to earn a return visit.
