Alberto's on Fifth Ratings and Reviews
Entire experience was less than expected ...
Entire experience was less than expected. We had several locals tell us this was the best Italian restaurant in Naples. We were expecting to concur but found the service very average, food slightly above average but nothing noteworthy.

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor, and based on the reviews and menu decided to give it a try as we were in the mood for a good Italian meal. We noticed they offered an early bird and late night menu special, so we opted for the 8:30 reservations which provided two courses and a glass of house wine for approx. $22, a very good deal based on the individual prices on the regular menu. When we arrived, we had to wait a bit for a table to be set outside. When we were seated, our waiter gave us menus and walked away. We were given the regular menu, not the late night menu, so we asked about it upon his return. He said he wasn't aware of the time, so that's why he didn't give us the option of menus. He checked us in for 8:30, how could he not know what time it was. We ordered salads for our first course which were both very good and a nice sized portion. Luckily we were enjoying the outdoors and people watching, so the delay in waiting for our main course was not an issue. We were delivered our meals, and I believe he may have come over very briefly to ask how everything was before we barely took a bite. We noticed another waiter at another table offering fresh parmesan cheese to his table. This was not offered to us, nor could we even locate our waiter to ask for it. My husband enjoyed his meal very much, but I found mine to be overcooked and mushy. The marinara sauce also had little flavor. I'm basing my review on my husband's meal, as I think I was just disappointed in the level of service from our waiter which in turn made me lose my appetite. We did not see him for quite some time until we were done, and my husband had to have him located to come to the table. He said he would talk to his manager about my meal to see if he could get it removed. Next thing we know he puts the full unreduced bill on the table, leftovers in a bag and says have a good night. It was the waiter not the restaurant that was poor.

Our group went to enjoy the early bird meal and it was terrific. Jessica greeted us and she was doing everything. She is a great employee. I had the salad with beets and shrimp and it would have great as a meal, loved it. My entree was the salmon with asparagus and it was cooked perfectly with great presentation.

There were many interesting choices on the menu in each category, which meant it was difficult to it narrow down; and will definitely warrant a return. The food was superb; from the salad to the mains and to the desert. I am sometimes dubious going to Italian restaurants as I am lactose intolerant and often there are only a few choices that do not involve cheese or cream sauces; that was not he case at Alberto's. There were many fish, poultry and meat dishes that sounded great and had no cheese on them. Thank you!

Outstanding service coupled with fantastic meals. The four of us enjoyed everything. Wonderfully prepared entrees. Antonio delivered a nice personal dining experience. The manager prepared an off-the-menu zabaglione dessert that was simply spectacular!
Great service. Excelent taste and presentation .
We visited restaurant at the quiet Thursday night. Got very warm greeting from Jessica.
Our server Antonio was very knowleagable about menu and very pleasant person to interract.
Cheff Alberto does excellent job in the kitchen. Presentation and taste of our selected entries were superb.

We have been frequent guests at Alberto's for the past 2 years. We always have enjoyed our visits. The staff is wonderful, the food excellent, and the prices reasonable.
This is definitely the restaurant that we would recommend to others.
Please visit, you won't be disappointed.

Their early bird special is a rip off Sat at the bar and had a $7.00 glass of Chianti which cost $14 at the table. The glass of wine they give you
is cheap wine. Pazzo's early bird and happy hour is a lot better if you want Italian food.

The young lady that worked as the greeter was outstanding and friendly, the wait staff was excellent and accomodating. The chef who I understand is the owner, made our meal special, thank you.
Our only concern in all of Naples restaurants, Americans want their food service too quickly,
(we're Canadian but have travelled all over, including Italy) We asked for a slower service and it was provided. We went to Alberto's twice in our five nights in Naples.
all was good except Antonio made us feel like we were a bother to him. Took him 10 min to give us a menu and our wine plus as soon as two men and a woman walked in, he immediately took care of them. I think he thought we were not going to be a good tipper because we were doing the early dinner special. I was not impressed with him at all. That is the only downside to our visit
