Everyone enjoyed their meal, except me. My first course of gnocchi’s was so hot (spicy), I had to send it back. Then offered another fish with plain sauce. Then my rack of lamb was marbled with fat. I tried to eat around it. Never had a rack like that. Won’t order it at Alba again.

As much as I wanted to like Restaraunt Alba it was truly not up to par for the price point. The food that I ordered did not reflect the ingredients in the description and everything on the table was quite bland for my palate.

I have been to Alba many times, but this was my first time as a vegan. They could not have made me feel more welcome, been more attentive, or had more interesting and delicious food prepared for me. The rest of our party does not have special dietary requirements, and they loved everything. The service was exceptionally good.
