Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We always love coming to Alba... 2 reasons... We absolutely love the food, especially your family recipe of your parmigiana. 👌💕 The other reason is your wonderful staff. They always make us feel relaxed and it's such a great vibe.

I was in Italy three weeks ago and after eating this lunch I felt like I was back there. The food is absolutely delicious and as good as anywhere I ate throughout Italy. The staff are wonderfully knowledgeable about the menu and produce and service...is with a genuine smile. HIGHLY recommend the MEZZE MANICHE AL PESTO E TONNO - it’s superb!More

First time I went to Alba and wow, wow, wow. We left the friendly waitress pick our meals based on their specialties and she kicked out out of the park. An Italian red added to the enjoyment. Don’t forget to try their lemoncello…. Again a...big win for me. Not the sweet syrupy stuff you normally get but so pleasant and finished off the night with a king hit. Thank you Alba for your food and brilliant warmth from staff!More

A friend and I were looking for somewhere to eat before going to Enmore Theatre. We did not have a booking but the friendly staff offered us a table we would have to vacate in an hour which suited us fine. I had the Pindagghia,...which was cooked to perfection. It was quite tasted and well seasoned. My friend had the Sagne Al Ragu Di Agnello, which was enough to feed two people. He said it was well cooked and full of flavour. We finished by sharing the tiramisu, which was OK, but we have had better. This is the only criticism. The staff are super friendly and attentive. We'll definitely be back.More

Amazing food and service! Our waiter was so knowledgeable and friendly, offering suggestions for both wine & food for our group. The food was amazing and great portion sizes. We had a group of 5 and did the entree & main set each which was...greatly priced. We couldn’t even finish it all! The stand outs were the ragu and the spicy bruschetta. Soo yummy We finished our lunch with complimentary homemade shots which was so kind Thank you guys for an awesome experience, we’ll definitely be back!More

The staff were lovely, really friendly and attentive. The food on the other hand was missing some serious flavor. For an Italian restaurant that doesn't serve pizza you'd expect exceptional pasta, but the portion was small enough for a child and the whole meal was...over all bland. I'd definitely never go back.More
