Just had a delicious meal. This a small casual restaurant that features an interesting selection of dishes and salads. Features locally grown produce with an adjacent wine bar. It has limited seating and I don't believe they take reservations but well worth it even if...More

Incredible dishes. Homemade and delicious. Portions are big so go with an appetite. We'll be back! Intimate setting and a homey feel to this restaurant.

You have to go here if you appreciate Italian cuisine. The chef handmakes everything. Don't miss this place with reasonable prices.

Albano's isn't open every day of the week...so far, just on weekends. But what they lack in hours they more than make up in quality. Everything is homemade and the combination of tastes is exquisite. This is a place all should try. Be aware it's...More

This is my second time visiting this wonderful establishment. It is truly hard to believe, but Albano's Italian food can compete with the dishes that I have had in Florence and Rome. Everything is homemade, fresh, and locally bought, and the flavors have so many...More

We'd heard good things about this place, but it was even better than we expected. I've read everything is made in house, and I believe it - even the bread was wonderful. We shared a roasted beet, carrot & faro salad starter, very tasty and...More

Absolutely loved this delightful Italian eatry! The food was plentiful using only the best fresh ingredients. The presentation was excellent. Our food was served in a steaming skillet. The salad and dressing were a work of art with hidden treasures such as watermelon radishes. The...More

Usually Friday & Saturday. However, since I've posted this,they have taken a few breaks to re-do menus and take family time. I guess it's best to call or follow them on Facebook to find out more.

I am 95% sure they don't take reservations We walked in both times It's getting busier/more popular so you may have to wait during peak times but there is a winery next door!
