This used to be a good place, but it seems that both food and service have gone downhill. Very expensive, so you expect outstanding food and service. Both were lacking. Very noisy.

We had another delicious dinner at Alba’s. My husband and I shared the Alba salad which they were happy to split in the kitchen and the portion was
very generous. I ordered the Cornish hen and asked for a grilled polenta with it. I really enjoyed it. I can’t remember what everyone else at the table had but we were all pleased. Typical upscale Italian choices.
The waiter got my drink wrong and brought me vodka on ice instead of straight up. When I told him that’s not how I ordered it he took it right back but I think that I ended up getting the same liquor in a martini glass because the cocktail did not have the usual vodka flavor and tasted watery. The waiter however did bring us cheese and lots of olives to make up for this.
Our waiter recited quite a few specials but when we asked him the price he said he would have to check. There aren’t too many things in life that I will buy without knowing the cost.
I think that this is a very good restaurant. The rooms are pretty, the food is delicious and aside from a few glitches the service is great and professional. There is a lot with valet parking which is a plus as well.
It’s pretty noisy on the weekends , but this is a popular local restaurant with dependable cuisine and a lively atmosphere that is not overwhelming.

Thought food was good; but did not like the fact that menu did not have prices. When asked why, waiter indicated “ that our prices are fair & we’re competitive” that’s why no prices on menu. Wine by glass, expensive - so, ok experience

The valet parking guy was the best part of our experience. Food OK but nothing special. Service was rushed. Way overpriced given its quality — there are much better restaurants at the same price point within half a mile of this place.

I really like this restaurant. Everything, from the valet parking to the seating comfort, food, and service was excellent. Everyone in our group enjoyed the food. For me the branzino was perfect. My wife loved her pasta (I had her leftover for lunch the next day and it was great). We were with good friends and the ambiance is just perfect for sharing stories and enjoying the food. The waiters are all gracious and friendly. I can’t wait to go back, maybe next week.

Our first time here by recommendation. Nice place, bar. Service is very good and wait staff pleasant , efficient and well trained. Food was very good, in particular
Freshly prepared dishes at table side.
Wine list is extraordinary , but high priced.
When restaurant is full , noise level is pretty high, but tolerable. We will go back.

Ordered filet mignon medium. It came out well! grey.!
Not the waiters fault. The redo came out butterflied and medium as I first ordered.
However, not even an offer for desert or an after dinner drink. As my partner had finished his meal before I was served the redo!

Not going back for a long time

Again waitstaff was great. kitchen is week very week

This is the best restaurant in Westchester County. From the valet parking when you arrive to the warm greeting by the staff you are in for a wonderful evening. This is a family run establishment that prides itself on impeccable service in making you feel at home. The menus is extensive but always go with the specials. All the food is fresh and is always absolutely delicious. They have a great wine list at a variety of prices. They have a fantastic selection of fish and meat but the Bronzino is out of this world.

Came here with Andrew and then two weeks later with tom asa and gryphon with andrew and Kathy
Both meals were superb.
The veal chop with sausage and potatoes was superb.
The second time I had the chicken scarpiello and it was a generous portion which was excellent.
Kathy had the bolinaise pasta and it to was great.

This is an old-fashioned Italian restaurant-in a good way. The dining room is comfortable and elegantly decorated, there are numerous servers (all male) who explain specials in detail, the maitre d' is attentive, and the food is very good indeed, though definitely not cheap. Fish is filleted and salads made tableside. A little sticker shock-wine by the glass at $14 is rather high (though the wine was excellent). A special occasion place perhaps but it is good to see it apparently surviving in an area of Portchester which looks rather run down. Valet parking is helpful (we were there on Mothers' Day when the rain was torrential).

Plus they give you a few samples of cheese when you sit.

Service was bad. It was though we weren’t even in the restaurant. Anytime we wanted anything, we needed to bring it to their attention (menus, drinks, even our main u did “comp” us on dessert. Through open table, I told them we were there for a birthday. It was never acknowledged. Still had a nice meal though with friends.
