Owners Roberto & Silvana Chiappelloni — originally from Piacenza, Italy — have always believed that good food should not be outrageously expensive and that good wines are meant to be enjoyed. Alberto’s offers a welcoming and friendly atmosphere from the moment you walk through the door. The restaurant’s award-winning wine list complements a menu that offers spirited versions of home-cooked dishes from the Emilia-Romagna, Lombardy and Ligurian provinces. The antique mahogany bar, frosted glass and wrought iron chandeliers, souring oak-beamed ceiling and exposed brick walls creates a warm and familial culinary treasure in Forest Hills.
