About Alberto's on Fifth
Chef Alberto Varetto creates the finest in contemporary Northern Italian cuisine.
His culinary interpretations emphasize seasonal ingredients, while creatively respecting the great traditions of Italian gastronomy.
The glory of Italian cooking is fresh ingredients, served at their peak, and handled in a way that flatters, rather than masks, their personalities.

Alberto's on Fifth Ratings and Reviews
We love Albertos and try to get there every month. Food is always fabulous. Our friends were there for the 1st time and enjoyed the food. Unfortunately our server was very distracted and brought 4 out of 6 of us the wrong wine. We asked for more bread, it never came. He just seemed uncaring and totally not involved. It was the 1st time we had this terrible service. We will be back but I’ll make sure he’s not our waiter. It left s bad impression for our guests.
Alberto’s never disappoints. The menu is broad and excellent and even the basic traditional dishes are elevated by the deft handling of seasonings and perfect sauté, grilling, roasting, etc. Off the menu but always available is the branzino, which I highly recommend. The pastas are excellent as is the veal loin.
Our waiter was Antonio. He was attentive and very competent without being obnoxious.
The food's presentation was impressive and appetizing. We suggested it to a couple who live in Naples and frequently go to Pazzo's. They enjoyed their meal and seemed grateful for our recommendation,
Alberto's is one of our favorite restaurants, not only downtown, but in Naples! The food is always delicious and the service is impeccable. We try to take advantage of the Early Bird menu. The Agnolotti is delicious and the mussels or mista salad is fabulous as well. My husband enjoyed his steak as it was tender and melted in his mouth. The price is also right.
We are always asked what restaurant do you recommend to newcomers and to our friends or family who come to visit and it is inevitably Alberto's!!!!!.Thanks so much. It is a treasure!
A perfect dinner. We went with friends for the early dinner special. Great menu selection. Food fabulous Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend to anyone seeking an upscale experience for a reasonable price. Can't wait to go back.
We were in Naples for a business trip to deliver furniture to a client. We stayed at the Inn on Fifth and read the reviews of Alberto's and decided to try it. We passed several other great looking restaurants on the short walk and almost decided to eat at one of the but we had made a reservation at Alberto's and thought it best to honor our commitment.
My husband and I are quite particular about food, always choosing smaller chef owned restaurants with fresh ingredients with great service. Alberto's impressed from the moment we sat down, white table cloths, intimate seating, attentive and professionals service. Fresh, hot bread was served immediately after our drink order and it was divine. The menu offered several fresh fish entrees with an interesting mix of flavors and sauces. I chose the sea bass with mushrooms, asparagus and the most amazing polenta. It was spectacular and my husband wanted to return the next night so he could order it. His blackened snapper was very impressive as well. What was most impressive was the texture of the fish, moist and delicate with a freshly steamed asparagus and a light flavorful sauces.
The overall cost was extremely reasonable, since the entrees were complete and not alacarte also given the quality of the people and the food.
We would definitely return and recommend this to anyone who has high expectations.
Summer promotions and early bird specials have great value. Food quality is always excellent. We always had good services on past visits. This time, our waiter wanted each couple to order from the same menu (either regular or early bird) to avoid "confusions". There's only 4 of us and he couldn't figure out who's ordering what? Requesting customers to confine their selections is not appropriate.
We have been coming to Alberto's on 5th for years, and it's always been our favorite restaurant for dining out with friends. The service is consistently excellent and the interior is uncluttered and elegant. Normally the food is amazing, however we were disappointed with the quality of our meals. Our order came out so fast that even our waiter was surprised, which possibly should have been a warning. Two of our party had the pappardelle with bolognese style veal ragout and in both dishes the pasta was simply undercooked to the point where it was a struggle to cut through with a fork let alone your teeth. And the ragout was under seasoned and lacking flavor. The other pasta main of agnolotti with ricotta and spinach was deemed delicious by the other adult present and the children were happy with their pizza and Alfredo pasta so we still give the meal three stars, but overall it was a disappointment based on our previous experiences at this beautiful restaurant.
An outstanding dining experience as always. The food is wonderful and the service outstanding. For the month of August Alberto is offering an unbelievable special. The regular dinner menu at 50% off. Wine under $100 a bottle, 50% off as well. Almost doesn't pay to eat at home. Thank you Alberto for this generous offer. We always enjoy dining with you.
Love the food, Fave restaurant. The best place to eat in town, authentic Italian with REAL homemade pasta, unlike other restaurants who state they have home made. Group of 6 Italian women who are "foodies" and who know good food. Alberto the owner/chef is quite an awesome host as well coming out to speak to us more than once. Don't think twice, you will not be disappointed.
The Best Italian food I have ever had. I am from NY and am a total foodie and never expected to find anything like this in Florida. The service was impeccable and the food was as authentic as can be. What a great experience. I can't wait to come back!! Nice job.
