We could not pick a favorite meal between the two of us. Our waitress was lovely and made me feel special on my birthday. One of my favorite places in Jasper, it is a right of passage to eat here at least once while in town.

Sat next to the bar area and the fridge was crazy loud. It was all I could hear. Food was great though!

We booked our reservation on Open Table and the only available time was 6:15. When we arrived at the restaurant it was totally empty and we thought oh oh. Maybe this isn’t that good. We were absolutely mistaken. About 15 minutes later the place was packed. Our waiter James suggested the Calimari as an appetizer and it was delicious. We both ordered a pasta dish..spaghetti carbonara and seafood spaghetti and both were incredible. James was an awesome waiter and we would definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to Jasper.

This Restaurant far surpassed our expectations. Every entre as well as the appetizer were cooked to perfection. I have honestly never had a better meal in Canada.

Ambiance is sadly lacking for a first class food service business. Maybe it’s Jasper but for high prices and sophisticated food service the restaurant is modestly more interesting than a college cafeteria. Server was terrific and food was interesting and very flavourful. Pricing in the area is very high and this restaurant is no exception.

Wonderful sweet spot between higher dollar upper crust of Jasper and the diner/pub grub offerings. Our family of 4 including kids 12 & 15 found interesting dishes (ziti mezzi ragout, wild hame carpaccio), enough flexibility to accommodate the kids (pasta with red sauce, seafood spaghetti) and super friendly attention fro owner/operator Kirin (also front of the house that nite) and server Matt. The pasta was truly al dente, to the kitchens credit and carafes of house wine well priced. It’s a small )~35 seat) room on the second floor above street level. The entrance is unassuming and could use a quick finish layer makeover but do not be off put. Open only a year or so you might want to grab a meal there now as I suspect Kirin and crew will be around the Jasper scene for a while, moving up in scale and price.

Great location in Jasper, friendly, attentive service. They need to provide kid's colouring crayons & paper for a more kid friendly environment. My food was ok (duck), my husband's was excellent (steak).

The service was amazing! It was my bf’s birthday and when I booked the reso online I wrote notes about table preference and requested they do something nice for him. So when I went to the bathroom, the waiter tracked me down and asked for my bf’s name and after dinner they brought out a dessert with a candle on this big wooden board and wrote Happy Birthday sand his name in chocolate sauce which was also on the house! Food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Would definitely come again!

Light room, could be noisy if placed in the centre. Beef pasta was good. Salmon ok. Tiramisu a bit tasteless & strange. Server spent time with each table.

Great pasta at a good price point for Jasper. Jacquie was very friendly and attentive. Nice wine selection. Ambiance was not that great. Nicer tables and chairs would help warm up space and feel more upscale.

Went here twice while vacationing. Service both times was superb. Surprised at the quality of the pasta dishes, both vegetarian and meat. Wine is very well priced and a decent selection. We shared a meal and they split the portions before serving. Much appreciated.

The staff were so kind and welcoming. We had a wheelchair user in our party and they had reserved 2 tables for our party of 4 as they weren’t sure which would be most suitable. The food was superb. We would highly recommend this Italian restaurant. Very reasonable and using opentable to book it was so easy.

I had the Carbonara which was very good and others in our group had the Ravioli and the Rigatoni which they said was very good as well. They offered pepper but it would have been nice for them to also offer some fresh grated parma. Overall very good and we would go back next time we are in Jasper.

First night in Jasper and had a fabulous dinner at ALBA! Fresh, authentic Italian at its finest. Our three teenagers (ages 16-20) love calamari and this one made their top 3 all time list! The calamari was perfect - lightly coated and fresh. Our server recommended the Arancini and we should have ordered more! We had the gnocchi, carbonara, wild mushroom ravioli, and seafood spaghetti - all fabulous! Would definitely dine here again when in Jasper.
