Alberto’s Lounge accepts a small amount of reservations every day and night.
The remainder of our tables are kept available for customers on a first come first served basis.
The BEST Italian good. Must try the pasta, burrata, and octopus with potatoes.
The whole experience was perfect. The wait staff were on point and the food and cocktails were amazing. We were made to feel very welcome and were not rushed on.
Awesome food, wine and ambience, high recommended! Great evening all round!
It was my birthday dinner
Everything was good
Loved the venue
Not much interaction between waiter and us
Was a bit disappointed that no one said happy birthday to me even thought I mended it in the booking
But overall everything was good and the I’ll probably come again
Fantastic dishes, high level of knowledge from the staff about both the sublime booze and dishes on the menu. Can't wait to get back.
Amazing service, incredible seafood pasta. Will definitely be back!
There's nothing you can say about this restaurant that hasn't already been said numerous times. If you want to go somewhere for good food, service and a good time, go here.
A wonderful little restaurant with a cosy atmosphere. Everything was amazing and I definitely can’t wait to go back!
Great little place, with great food and great vibe. Perfect place for V-Day!
Great food and atmosphere. Love coming here whenever I’m in Sydney.
Cool place. Great vibe for a dinner with a bit funk.
A great hidden place that is amazingly friendly and helpful. The food is excellent as well as the drinks. We had a nice night out and enjoyed everything about Alberto. Well recommended and will definitely be back.
Great food, expert service, buzzy vibe. Will return!
The venue is purposefully almost impossible to find - there are no obvious signs in a dark one-way street.
Having found a way inside, the staff were close to arrogant. From the maitre-de to the waitressing staff, just not at all inclined to be helpful, kind of arrogant, difficult to beckon, almost in your face suggesting how lucky you were to be there.
Food and service were outstanding
Food was simply superb! Fabulous wine selection and friendly staff!
Great service, great food, great vibe. Thanks for a great night!
Food was outstanding, atmosphere was also nice, staff was very friendly. We will definitely come back for dining.
Great space, awesome location. Service is courteous. Food is hit or miss but the dishes that are a hit are absolutely worth a return visit. Best Trippa alla romana in the universe, hands down. Really, really delicious pasta as well. Salad needed seasoning but was otherwise very fresh. Octopus cooked just right but a little overdressed. Peaches on the caprese were completely unripe. Spiedino was delicious and innovative. Fantastic hazelnut gelato. Felt somewhat overpriced for small dishes but to be fair, cost was competitive with other Sydney restaurants of same caliber. Not as good as I expected overall but I would still return for the dishes that really shined, as they are some of the best anywhere to be found.
Even the address is perfect - just a doorway in the middle of nowhere !!
Really enjoyed the whole experience.
Food was incredible, fabulous service and an overall wonderful experience!
All-around great experience, from the friendly, professional attitude and attentiveness of staff, to the truly on-point dishes (the plates were left completely bare, the meal so good that we had to order bread as not to leave a drop). Adding this to one of my favourites.
Only neg is that the music was louder than it needed to be THO was adjusted when asked, just enough to keep the room quite lively and the cool tunes heard.
I love a place in Sydney with a dinner crowd after 9pm.
Friday treat with the family.
Everything was of the highest quality.
Fabulous service, food & venue.
Food and service was excellent! Great find a hidden gem in Surry Hills
Fantastic food and even better service. Great ambience and drinks. Will return for sure.
Service was impeccable! The food incredible and the vibe in the restaurant was fun and lively.
Very great restaurant, the food was amazing and the wine list as well.
We were there with our 1 year old son and the staff helped us to adjust the table so we were more comfortable!
Excellent homely Italian food with lovely, attentive waitstaff
Family holiday lunch
Amazing experience, the veal tongue was next level as was the zucchini flower, anchovie pasta!
Wine was on point 👌🏽
I’ll be back 🥳
Great food and cute place!
Terrific range of food and wine backed by friendly and knowledgeable staff. A great experience we’d all love to repeat. Standout dishes of veal tongue and anchovy, octopus and chickpeas and the shiitake and porcini pappardelle. The Trippa alla Romana was good too.
Spot-on food and service, excellent buratta and prosciutto, salad, pastas.
Great vibe. Great service (Mark was brilliant). Great food. Really REALLY recommend it.
Great food and ambience!! The place an an amazing bar and is in a convenient location.
we were new to Alberto's and enjoyed our lunch experience there very much. The food, service and ambiance were all very well done. The wine may be a little expensive but that seems to be typical of quality restaurants now. Everyone has to make a dollar. We plan to go back to try other dishes. Parking is a problem so allow $30 for that if you plan to stay more than one hour.
Food was outstanding and the wine list complemented the menu beautifully. We had a great selection of dishes, deceptively simple but extremely tasty.
Great find. Food was brilliant and wine pairing equally satisfying. Trippa Alla Romana is the go to dish.
