I have been to Alberto's several times, most recently early November 2017. The menu is predicable and offers a wide-range of Italian-American standbys. Every one of these dishes I have had have been very good. It is a solid meal, with great service, in a traditional restaurant setting. White bread before the meal, iceberg lettuce salad, yummy dressing. The specials were inspired and sounded good - no one at my large party went with those entrees. Decent wine list. If you are in the area with your persnickety parents, this is a solid choice for an Italian meal out.
