When we were first seated, we were in the middle of the dining area, between 2 tvs and severs coming and going, but when we asked to move to a booth on the side, the hostess didn't mind making the change and it was much much better. This was supposed to be a date night after all, and we were... More

Arguably the best fine dining in Quincy. Top notch european (with a distinct east european influence from the owner) cuisine with an excellent wine selection and very good wait staff as well.

I had been wanting to try Alba since moving to Quincy, but the upscale pricing discouraged us from going, since there are several very good restaurants in Quincy, but with lower prices. Upon arrival early on a Friday night, we were seated immediately, but the restaurant quickly filled after that with a waiting line and an apparently full reservations book.... More

We came here for a family dinner. The food was delicious and the service was above and beyond ! The oysters were delicious and we all ended up getting steaks which were amazing! I got the Filet and it was cooked perfectly ! Will definatly be returning in the future ! All the staff were so friendly and attentive.

This was the best steak - twice in a row - that I've had ever! Capitol Grille doesn't even come close to taste!

Great restaurant in Quincy Ctr. In the nice weather they have a rooftop bar and seating. The bar is very nice and staff is very friendly and attentive. Have tried rack of lamb which was excellent along with swordfish which was also excellent. Portions are great. The bolognese is the best I ever had and would highly recommend it.

Thank Karen M
