We truly enjoyed our dinner here! It is a smaller place so it wasn't the most quiet, but as a group of 6 we only added to the noise level. Food was all amazing and we can't wait to go back!

Glad we went again! This Bistro seems to fit our needs, foodwise, pricewise (well, with a Groupon for 4 in our group), and comfortable, with BYOB making it casual and easy.
We'll be back again soon.

Great BYOB. Our crostini appetizer was delicious. I had oxtail ragu and my husband chose the mahi-mahi special. Both were perfect. Service was terrific. We have Bistro Albertino on our favorite restaurant list.

The food and service were outstanding. The seafood dishes are all very flavorful and prepared expertly. Desserts are really excellent and the orange cello that is brought gratis to the table it’s very delicious. Service is excellent dishes are cleared quickly and water is constantly being refilled

Great BYOB. Our table was ready for us when we arrived. Nice menu with a variety of options. We both opted for salads followed by pasta. The grilled Caesar was good but we’ve had better. The spinach salad was good. The beef and pasta dish was both filling and tasty. The meat was not very flavorful although the sauce was fantastic and the pasta was cooked to perfection. The pasta and seafood dish was equally as good. The bread was disappointing - not all that fresh - but the pesto spread that accompanied it was very good. A nice cappuccino and creme brûlée capped off a very nice meal We brought a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio and with tax and tip spent less than $80. Parking was easy and the service was efficient. You can’t beat it.

This is the third time we have visited Albertino's. The food is always excellent. My brother got the fish special which was mahi mahi. He really enjoyed it but it was disappointing to get the bill and see it was $28.95. That was kind of pricey - I always think restaurants should tell you the price of specials, or else you assume they are priced similar to other menu items. Other than that small issue, everything was fantastic.

This was one of the worst meals I've ever had. Went on Valentine's day and they offered a prix fixe menu which was fine the options looked great. Our appetizers were ok, the beet salad was fine but the butternut squash ravioli was not. Our entrees came and our steak was so tuff and fatty that I spit it out into my napkin and The mashed potatoes had to be from a box. I informed our server that it was too tough to eat and fatty and she said:" I will inform the chef". No offer to bring another meal or have a manager brought over. Our dessert was just as bad the cake that was served definitely came pre-made from somewhere else and the "Tartufo" was frozen Sorbet with chocolate. Our server was fine just the quality of the food was pretty terrible for the price. Will not be returning.

We have been to Bistro Albertino many times and have never been disappointed. The menu choices are really good and the food is always fresh, hot and delicious. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful and provided excellent service. Ending the night with a complimentary limoncello is awesome! We highly recommend this place.
