Service was surprisingly bad. We were eating our starters and when finished they asked if we wanted the bill? Hadn't had our main course yet. Food okay but they need to be a lot more organised. visited Alba on 30 Apr 2017

We went on a Sunday lunchtime (reservation essential). There was no vegetarian Sunday roast option which was a real shame. Otherwise the food was good. Being a Sunday, it was very busy and the staff was a bit stretched so we had to wait quite a while for food which, when it arrived, wasn't hot but this was fixed very quickly and with many apologies which were appreciated. The Alba is a lovely place, the staff are friendly and I will go again but maybe mid-week or evening. visited Alba on 30 Apr 2017

We went for Sunday lunch. The food was fine but the atmosphere wasn't at all relaxing. The seating was cramped & we had to leave as soon as we'd finished our main course as a kids party arrived & the noise levels meant conversation was impossible. Even the teenagers with us complained about the noise. visited Alba on 12 Mar 2017

Always come back to this eaterie. Fine service, well presented fare and welcoming, friendly atmosphere to boot. Family of 4 ( 2 adults and 2 kids) arrived at quiet midday. Kids meals ( Hawaiian pizza and spag bol.) and our starters arrived first, followed by adult mains ( Beef Lasagne in a rich Ragu sauce). All wholesome, hearty portions packed full of flavour. Kids ate ice cream in cones. We Just found enough space to share a Pink Grapefruit / candied orange sorbet with Cannolini. Nice. Reasonably priced too. Well done Team Alba. 5 stars : ) visited Alba on 03 Jan 2017

We had dinner on Christmas Day, we are for 2pm so it was pretty busy. Our starter was very tasty but we did get any motzerella cheese. When our Christmas dinner arrived, I could only eat turkey and parsnips, the carrots and potatoes were not cooked properly and were unedible. We did mention it at the time but told the chief was Italian and didn't know how to cook them. We were very disappointed in the food, the atmosphere and service was very good. visited Alba on 25 Dec 2016

This was my and my husband's third visit but our first year going to The Alba for Christmas lunch. The quality of the food, the friendliness of the staff and welcoming atmosphere was exactly what you would expect from this fantastic restaurant. The chef was amazing and we definitely did not leave hungry. I look forward to visiting again visited Alba on 25 Dec 2016

We were a party of 37 and every guest commented on how fantastic the food was. Great venue and nice atmosphere. My only criticism is that we were a large party and were split up by a wall/divider which I feel we should have been told about beforehand. Would come again. visited Alba on 16 Dec 2016

We had our Xmas Party at the Alba for 17 people. The food was fantastic, way way above normal pub fare and to top it off, the service was flawless. It's a shame all the pubs in Richmond shut at 11 on Thursdays, we were prepared to spend a lot more money :) visited Alba on 15 Dec 2016

9 of us came here after a cold rugby match at Twickenham in November. Everyone commented on what an excellent find it was. A very cosy bar/restaurant. Great atmosphere, great music, great service and excellent food. We will definitely come here again (in summer too)! visited Alba on 26 Nov 2016

Never been so disappointed with an evening out. We came on Friday 14 Oct and the following was wrong: 1. it's winter, it's cold, yet you allow adults and children to go in & out of the restaurant doors, leaving them wide open and giving seated guests a chill. The lady next to us was wearing her cost for dinner. Suggest you close these doors and they use the central pub door. We got moved after complaining 2. the music was so loud we had to shout at each other across the table and ask for the music to be turned down. The waitresses were also shouting information at us so we could hear. We're supposed to be in a pub and restaurant not a night club 3. The main meal came very quickly and we were just finishing our starters, the table hadn't even been cleared 4. We asked for a medium cooked steak - it came medium-to-rare. We sent it back. The 2nd steak was even more rare but by this point I had lost my appetite and interest It was supposed to be a nice night out with a family member visiting from the USA and I can't explain how disappointed I am, having been there a few times to just have a few drinks at the bar. Not sure how you will encourage me to come back. visited Alba on 14 Oct 2016

Booked a table at Alba for Father's Day. The food was really great (my Neopolitan brother-in-law totally approved of the pizzas) and the service was fantastic. We'll definitely be returning.
