Italian
Chef Alberto Varetto creates the finest in contemporary Northern Italian cuisine.

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.

I told them when we arrived it was my husband’s 75 birthday, they did nothing about it- no piece of cake or anything. It is the first time any restaurant ignored my request

We were there on a summer Friday night so it was very quiet. This is my favorite restaurant in Naples.
The food is great~there were 4 of us and all were very happy with our meals and wine. It is not inexpensive but Definitely worth it. In the winter it is fun to sit outside to enjoy the parade of people strolling by.

Disappointed - a Restaurant who is calling themselves „fine Italian“ should know how to prepare an Italian dish!
Or better - do not put it on the menu!
I had Vitello tonato- the veal was good but there was no creamy tuna sauce- instead they sprinkled mayonnaise all over the dish! Read an italian cookbook before you serve this again!
The mussels were served in a tasteless watery tomato broth - also disappointing

Fantastic! Alberto’s never fails to deliver a great dining experience for an honest price. Each time we go one of us has a new favorite dish. Mine is his new Salmon creation with fish sourced from the Faroe Islands in the frigid North Sea. You just gotta go now before the crowded season when tables are plentiful and dining is relaxed. Mangia!

We had out-of-town guests so Alberto’s is always our first choice for a never-miss, outstanding meal. Our guests opted for pasta, his specialty, Pesto with Lump Crab and Goochi with Shrimp, two winners in their estimation.

Are you kidding? Alberto’s is the best or at least one of the very best eateries in Naples. Chef Alberto is always there except for rare occasions when he is in Italy in the summer for a few weeks scouting for new food ideas. His menus are a mix of real classic northern Italian cuisine and Americanized specialities. For example, his veal tenderloin filets are to die for. He also features an early-bird menu. For just $25, you get wine (or beer), appetizer and main. It’s sort of a sampler of his dinner menu. We always opt for the full menu as you get the full treatment from the kitchen for just a few dollars more. All pasta, by the way, is made fresh from flour imported from Italy as you would expect from such a great chef. Lastly, don’t be afraid to ask Chef Alberto to make you a dish of a combination of his special pasta creations.

We thoroughly enjoyed Albertos. We had the early dining menu , which gave you a number of excellent choices. The service was very friendly and they were aware we were going to a movie an couldn't have been more accommodating. This is one of our most favored restaurants.

This has always been one of me and my husband's favorite restaurant. The food is really good, it is fairly quiet and their specials are a great price, also very good service. You have to ask for the early bird menu as they do not voluntarily give it to you up front.

Delicious as always! Their prix fix menu is the best in town! The burrata and prosciutto was creamy and amazing! The veal tenderloin was probably the most tender and flavorful veal I have ever had. Don’t leave there without sharing a creative homemade pasta dish. We recommend the short rib pappardelle. So good! This place is. A must every year when we come. We may even go back for a second time this week!

Off season. Good service. Food was excellent. Veal tenderloins, Chilean sea bass, pasta bolognese, chicken special. Downer was ants on table under plate at end of meal. Manager said they have it sometime at that table from the window. No apology, no comp, no nothing. Just “it happens”. Surprising response for an expensive, downtown place.

We choose to dine @ Alberto’s both “In and Out of Season” because on all counts they are among the top ten of Naples finest restaurants. In addition to their fine appetizers and entrees, they have an impressive list of desserts, all reasonably priced. Even if you think you’d better not order a dessert because you and the couple who joined you are watching waistlines, splurge and order the Tiramisu for the table and request four dessert spoons. They have the Best Ever Tiramisu!

Excellent - as always! Every time we have dinner at Alberto's, we look at each and say, "We have to come more often!" And then "life" gets in the way.
Our early dining dinner on Thursday was terrific! We ate very early, so it wasn't very crowded, but that's ok with us. Elbert, our server was THE BEST!! He was there when we needed him without 'hovering.' :) Everything we had was delicious - beet salad, spinach salad, tagliatelle pasta w/ pesto sauce & scallops, skewer of jumbo scallops and shrimp w/ lobster sauce and rapini. The only quirk was that the skewers were sitting on a bed of mashed potatoes. Didn't know how to interpret that. :)
All in all - a wonderful dining experience. We'll be back sooner rather than later. Thanks, Elbert.
