What a delightful surprise. Small and Italian. Food was great and the service was the same. Will definitely go back.
Went for my husband’s birthday and everything was perfect. It’s BYOB so we brought a bottle of our favorite wine, ordered an Antipasti for 2, took our time and then had some pasta. I ordered the special, spinach saccotini with jumbo shrimp and a garlic Parmesan sauce - excellent. My husband ordered the linguini and clams, delicious. Then to end the meal, dessert and espresso were great but we were also served complimentary limoncello! Will be back.
Everything was great!
The food was delicious and the service was great. Would definitely come back even though it's a bit of a drive for me.
Although the store front is not wonderful, everything else is. The food is delicious and authentic and I definitely will be returning with friends and family members. One of the best Italian restaurants at which I’ve ever eaten. 5 stars in my book.
Hidden gem in a tiny shopping center on Willow Grove. Food was prepared with care and service was terrific.
My boyfriend and I went for dinner and decided to try somewhere new. Bistro Albertino did not disappoint. Everything we had was wonderful. We had the goat cheese appetizer which was really good. My boyfriend had the penne al a vodka and I had a special, homemade spinach pappadelle with crabmeat and sun dried tomatoes. It was all excellent!
So glad I found this place. We will definitely be back.
I don't remember our servers name, but he was so wonderful and attentive.
Never a disappointment when we go here. Service was a little slow on this particular night, but not a major inconvenience.
Always delicious and a wonderful staff! Thank you!
Great little restaurant with great food. Their signature dish (Bistecca Albertino) was amazing! The sautéed calamari was also delicious. Will be back soon!
Service was poor. Appetizers were brought to table in a reasonable time but our dinners took over 40 min to come and when I asked to speak with manager he did not apologize but instead blamed it on us getting appetizers. Everyone who came in after us got their food long before we did. I will never eat here again.
Despite living within minutes of the restaurant and having been a frequent diner at the restaurant that previously occupied the space, this was our first visit and will not be our last. The grilled romaine and roasted pepper and mozzarella salads were tremendous. The pasta dishes were very good and came out steaming hot - almost too much food. I had a beef and fettuccine pasta that I would order again and again. Two others in our party had the linguine with seafood in a red sauce and could not stop raving. The service was attentive and orderly. Our party of five was in and out in less than 75 minutes and never felt rushed. The BYOB advantage made the restaurant a bona fide bargain. We will return again - soon.
I've written reviews multiple times for this place. The only difference, now instead of serving a shot of limoncello after the meal, this time they served a shot of orangecello after the meal.
Long story short, order a salad with your meal. Their entrees are small. The salads, including the spring mix, are good (all lettuces are dark and not iceberg) and a decent size.
The service and food were good. Our waiter was very attentive. We were seated immediately upon arriving. The prices were average for the area. The menu was limited, but they offered specials in addition to the menu. Since there are so many Italian BYOB's in the area, I doubt I would go back before I tried some others.
Always a good meal with good service.
We had a great dinner at Bistro Albertino. It was not our first visit and we will definitely return. We were seated right away and had a very nice, efficient waitress. Our entrees were delicious and hot. The dessert was excellent as well Overall, it was a great evening!
Excellent! 4th or 5th time at the restaurant. Always enjoyed my meal
Great food and wonderful service!
Excellent service, tasty food, ecclectic menu. BYOB- would recommend!
This restaurant was terrific. The food was good and the server was excellent. We had a terrific time and everything was wonderful.
This was my 2nd visit and it was wonderful. We were seated quickly, brought bread with an awesome pesto, Drinks were quickly refilled and the food was very tasty. My boyfriend is not a huge fan of Italian food but took me for my birthday. He is already looking for a reason to go back. The only negative I would give this place is the parking lot. We had to find street parking but other than that, this is a great place to visit and have great food.
Great service. Tasty dishes. Nice variety.
We dined here, before, and felt the food was better, the last time. My date and I shared the caprese salad, with very unripe tomatoes. They were hard, and chewy. My dinner was tasty, but much too creamy. The others enjoyed theirs.
We tried based on the reviews on Open table and weren’t disappointed. Great food, exceptional service and reasonably priced. Always nice a have a good BYOB place on your list of favorites.
Special Valentine's menu short but sweet. Best appetizer and dessert we've had in a long time. Entree great too. Our new neighborhood favorite!
Terrific Valentine's Day Dinner at prefixed menu! As always Groni and the staff delivered above & beyond
Valentine’s dinner! Exceptional fixed menu. Food was delicious, service amazing, price great!!!! Will be visiting again!!!
We were seated promptly. Had a great round table. Service was good. Food was delicious.
Hidden gem! Great local restaurant with unexpected menu. Food is really tasty and service was excellent. The complimentary orange cello shots were delicious.
We've liked it in the past.
Our 2 friends were first-timers.
All enjoyed the food, quiet corner spot, waiter John, BYOB and nice Groupon too.
Many people living nearby aren't aware of Albertino.
We'll be back again.
We enjoyed our meal very much and the service was excellent - not too fast, not too slow.
We would definitely return again.
We had dinner here to celebrate a birthday. What a surprise it was better than expected. What a great place to eat. Can't wait to go back.
We ate at the restaurant Saturday night. We had a 7:30 reservation. It took a long time for us to place our order and we did not get our food until 9:30. We've eaten at this restaurant many times and have always had a good experience. Two of the dinners had small portions which is very unusual. They were extremely crowded and there were large parties. We called over the manager right before our food arrived. He was very nice and apologetic but I feel he should have perhaps comped desert or our appetizer and salad for the extremely long wait. Smaller parties came in after us and got food before us. It was so packed that the heat was at times very uncomfortable. I'm going to chalk it up to a bad night for them and will consider returning for another try since the food and value are very good.
I admit it. I was nervous. from the outside, there is nothing that would draw you in.
the food was fantastic. byo so we had an excellent bottle of wine from home. would go back in a second.
We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit. We will be back.
Unfortunately the service was so bad that we will not return. They were out of chicken fingers at 7pm on a Friday so our daughter was out of luck and ended up with the most disgusting ravioli we had ever seen and tasted. She asked for a little bit of butter on it but received a watery soggy mess and the server never returned after our food was brought out. We waited so long that I had to approach the bar to get our check. We were never offered a dessert menu or coffee. I couldn't tell if they were under staffed or we were being overlooked. I ordered the chicken parm which came with pasta. I would have liked a vegetable for both my daughter and myself but the server took our incomplete order and ran. We did not get to ask if a salad was included or to add additional items. This was the worst birthday dinner ever.
Food was very good and served hot. The server was pleasant and engaging. We will definitely go back!
Food good, service very slow.
This was not our first visit to Bistro Albertino. It's a nice neighborhood BYOB. The food has always been quite good and the service excellent. This time the restaurant was busier than on our other visits. I'm glad for them if their business is picking up but it did seem to affect the service. I will still continue to be a repeat customer.
Great service. Was odd, though, that with nearly empty restaurant when we arrived, we were only able to be seated at one particular table (by the door in ten-degree weather), because other tables were “pre-assigned”.
Parking lot is a disaster to begin with, especially after snowstorm.
Very good food. Will definitely be back, but next time hopefully we can be better accommodated with table request.
