We were pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed the lobster ravioli as an appetizer. The halibut special with lemon, saffron risotto was very tasty along with the veal saltimbocca. The veal was not stringy & the sauce was delicious.

Our server, Miriam, was great- attentive but not intrusive. Spinach salad was delicious. Mussels could use a little more spice/garlic. Would have preferred that the chicken parm was breaded, rather than grilled. Enjoyed the pasta.

We love this restaurant. The food is really excellent and the servings generous (even the speciality ingredients like calamari, shrimp, rack of lamb etc.). Some of the desserts need work: The tiramisu and creme' brulee' are fine but the chocolate mousse was unexciting and topped with an undrained cheapo maraschino cherry that ran watery red syrup all over (really!!!!) :-( The mousse wasn't that creamy. Some good cakes are needed: Italian lemon cake anyone? or a fresh Crostata??
Always engaging service!! Jen was so much fun. Looking and listening to what goes on around us there, it always feels as if ALL the patrons are having SUCH a good time. The noise level--which isn't bad--is such HAPPY noise! Fun noise! Great people watching! Though it was crowded and slightly understaffed (in terms of serving), our food came out piping hot very efficiently. We've waited a long time in other restaurants. The Groupon deal always saves us $12 or $14 (covering much of the tip) but it always feels good to get a "deal." We'll be back!!

Delicious meals and great service. Thank you to the servers, Meadow & Albie (sp?). They were attentive, accommodating a & had good sense of humors. We were somewhat surprised that a side salad was not included with the entree. But, even without the salad, the entree seemed plenty enough to eat as we were full when we finished our meal. Husband said it was the best Chicken Parmesan he ever had and I thoroughly enjoyed my Chicken Marsala. We'll be recommending Bistro Abertino to our family & friends.

Went for my wife's 51st bday. Meadow, our server, was AWESOME...not sure how they remember all the specials but she was great. The apps were delicious and the main course, delicious. There entire time we were there they all couldn't do enough for you. If you like Italian this place is where you MUST try. If not for the dinner the service itself is fantastic.

Excellent dinner with utterly charming service. Our waiter was a winner!
Service a bit slow.....but that's cuz everything was made from scratch.
Delicious food. My pasta speciality was brilliant and their stuffed mushrooms are to die for. I've never had a better creme brulee!
It has a casual but lively vibe and a fun waitstaff. Get their Groupon and you save 12 bucks on dinner. Not bad!

After hearing a lot of good reviews about Albertino’s, we decided to check it out. They did not disappoint! Such a cute little Italian place. We were warmly welcomed when we went in. We were waited on by Meadow - she was fantastic. Very quick, had good suggestions, and humor that made us smile. Food flavor and portions were fantastic. We will definitely be back! Thank you!

Bistro Albertino was a lovely restaurant. The food is very good. Some dishes are quite rich, though and since I don’t have the best digestion I couldn’t eat much of it- lobster ravioli. Others enjoyed their entrees as well although the risotto dish was also very rich so those that ordered that also had to go easy. The food IS very tasty though and the chef does a great job with preparation. It’s also a BYOB which we appreciate.

My original dinner plans for 4 people was scheduled for outdoors but the sun and heat were too much....there were no issues with seating us inside, the staff were very nice, they were observant and quick to accomodate any needs. Being a birthday celebration, they recognized my partner and included a candle in her dessert and sang Happy Birthday. Just a nice atmosphere and they made us feel special! The food and drinks were very good! My recommendations with no hesitation! EJ Abington, Pa

Had to wait a few minutes past our reservation time and took a table no one wanted just inside the door so we didn't have to wait. Good selection of food. Would have rated the food a 5 but had better rosoto. Our server Medow, was awesome. Look forward to returning to try some other entrees.
