We had their white truffles special, black cod and ribeye.
Food was stupedous and service was warm. Wati, the asst manager offered good suggestions. We really enjoyed our maiden meal there and will definitely be back.

I wanted to take two friends out for dinner. A sort of thank you.
We had no place in mind when we arrived at this part of town and found this gem.

Restaurant feels spacious and relaxing. The wine list is superb and the owner was on hand to chat through it. He was very friendly and helpful.
We had the 5 course tasting menu which was really great. Each course fabulous.

Would definitely recommend this place. And I will definitely be back.

We held a farewell party for a dear colleague at Alba at the recommendation of one in our party. Had the outdoor seating as we were a big party of 12. There was a big screen on the wall showing photos of Italy. There was only one other small table for 2 next to us. Thankfully the weather was quite cool that night. Wait staff were attentive and we were served by the owner as well. Mains took a little long to be served. Good wine list and enough food options. Found the octopus appetiser too chewy though unlike the ones I have had in Spain. Had the lobster pasta dish, found the pasta too soft. Presentation was good. We ordered a few dishes to share as it was hard to choose. Nothing unpalatable but not much Wow! Maybe next time will try their set menu which has to be preordered 2-3 days before. Easy parking at Craig road multi-storey parking. Restaurant just a stone's throw if you exit at the 2nd floor of the carpark Duxton hill exit.
