Great little find in an unfamiliar neighborhood. Always count on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives to find these gems. Food was delicious and service exceptional.

Excellent food and service, as always!!! Not a bad dish on the menu. Of course, being able to bring my own wine elevates the restaurant to the top of my list.

The food is delicious! The service was fantastic, you can tell you are in a family run restaurant. Everyone made you feel welcome and they were happy to help. Their food is so good, and they top off your meal with some lemoncello!

Quite disappointed in their reservation keeping. Made and confirmed a 7:15 reservation. We weren't seated until 7:50 and didn't get to order dinner until after 8... What's the point of making reservations to stand in a corner of the dinning room for 30 minutes beyond the appointed time. We arrived early respecting their time... only to be seated late and in the table adjacent to the standing crowd waiting to be seated.

The waiter's service and tasty food do not make up for nothing but bread until an hour past our seating time request.

Our new favorite place! Delicious food and great service! It’s a small place so it does get a little loud but that’s because it gets a good crowd. I highly recommend Bistro Albertino!

Our family of 6 started with a few salads and two mussel appetizer dishes (in red sauce) and plenty of delicious bread. They arrived quickly with our dinners served shortly after we finished. We all enjoyed our dishes and the service was excellent. A great value for the money and the food is delicious.

It was way too loud. there was a large group there that allowed their little kid to run around.
I felt packed in and the noise level was out of control
the waitress rushed us to order, regardless of the multiple times we told her that we were going for a leisurely meal and trying to enjoy appetizers and would then decide on entrée.
it was the first time dining on a Friday and I'm sure that has much to do with it, so I won't make that mistake again, i'll stick to mid week. meal, as always, was perfect. one of my favorite places to dine.

Food & service was good. Sat close to the front door so it was a little cold but they turned on the heat for us. Also noticed that the tables in the back had table clothes but the ones up front did not. It may seem silly but I think it makes a difference and makes it cozier when there is a linen table cloth.
Will definitely go back.

We invited friends to join us, as we've enjoyed Albertino in past visits.
It's not clear that our friends enjoyed the meal, though we did.
One mentioned too much pasta in his pasta dish!!

We prefer NOT to make recommendations, as it gets us into trouble!

Food was exceptional! The grilled calamari as always melted in your mouth! THE best calamari I have ever had. My sisters rack of lamb with balamic reduction and figs was awesome! My linguine pescatore, as always, with housemade pasta, was so delicious! Cafe Albertinos, by far, some of the best italian food around. This was our 4th time here and every time excellent food and service.
