Bistro Albertino was a lovely restaurant. The food is very good. Some dishes are quite rich, though and since I don’t have the best digestion I couldn’t eat much of it- lobster ravioli. Others enjoyed their entrees as well although the risotto dish was also very rich so those that ordered that also had to go easy. The food IS very tasty though and the chef does a great job with preparation. It’s also a BYOB which we appreciate.

We have been here many times and have ALWAYS had a great meal, and last night was no exception. We both had one of the specials--Chilean sea bass and it was delicious. Can't wait to go back again!

My original dinner plans for 4 people was scheduled for outdoors but the sun and heat were too much....there were no issues with seating us inside, the staff were very nice, they were observant and quick to accomodate any needs. Being a birthday celebration, they recognized my partner and included a candle in her dessert and sang Happy Birthday. Just a nice atmosphere and they made us feel special! The food and drinks were very good! My recommendations with no hesitation! EJ Abington, Pa

Had to wait a few minutes past our reservation time and took a table no one wanted just inside the door so we didn't have to wait. Good selection of food. Would have rated the food a 5 but had better rosoto. Our server Medow, was awesome. Look forward to returning to try some other entrees.

Second visit and it was absolutely terrible. Ordered veal picante and besides the portion was very small, the capellini was the worst homemade pasta I ever tasted. Also, I asked for no Parmesan cheese and the manager actually served it
And she added Parmesan. She said “it was only a little she added.” Not the point. The manager was rude and not professional. The capellini seemed it was sitting in hot water for a few hours. Gummy and sticky. No sauce mixed with it and tasted like water(not even salted water.) The manager argued with me until she said fine we will make a new one. Unfortunately, the pasta was the same. Not edible! She said that’s the best they can do.

The food was delicious and waitress Meadow was so sweet and thoughtful. When we ordered desert she put a candle in the Tiramisu for our daughters birthday and sang happy birthday too smiling under her mask. We will definitely be returning in the very near future.

Always a pleasure to dine at Bistro Albertino. This time we had the Caprese appetizer; the tomatos were fresh and the mozzarella and topping were delicious. My husband had the lobster ravioli special with shrimp; very good but a little heavy on the sauce. Of course, we could have asked for light sauce and we will next time. I had the salmon with mushroom risotto and fresh asparagus; absolutely delicious. The bread is a little too crusty for our liking but we still enjoyed. This is one of our neighborhood goto restaurants, we dine here about once a month, and we will definitely be back. Service is always great; the wait staff is friendly and attentive. Finally, we enjoy the complimentary orange limoncello every time.

Octopus and mussels appetizer, arugula salad, and rack of lamb were prepared perfectly and more than adequate.
Definitely repeatable.

The food was so good! I was really impressed that our food didn’t taste salty but still had a lot of flavor. Our waitress was so pleasant and helpful. One minor thing, I had to ask for a water refill. It’s nice when this is done automatically. But still, I live a half hour away and would be happy to go there again!

The food was amazing. First time there, have been looking for a good BYOB. Going back next weekend with the Grandmother’s for Mother’s Day. I had the shrimp stuffed ravioli with scallops and it was amazing! My friend who is SUPER picky raved about it. Service was excellent! Two big thumbs up.
