I was in town for the Big Surf Half Marathon and looking for a place to carb load the night before. Alberto's was completely booked when I called but the host who answered the phone informed me that if I could arrive by 5:30 he could squeeze us in. When we arrived, I wasn't too sure about the place based on its location in a strip mall. My mistake...location isn't everything. Alberto's is a smaller, intimate restaurant with limited seating. Be sure to make a reservation!
The food was exceptional!!! The portions are on the bigger side so you may want to consider sharing an entree. My friend and I shared a Caesar salad and the Ziti Al Forno. We were sold once we had the salad (delicious!). The ziti was the icing on the cake (amazing!). Our awesome waitress, Sabina (be sure to sit with her if you can), recommended a Pinot Grigio that was also very delicious. By the end of the meal, we were raving about the food to each other. A definite must do if you're in the Monterey area.
