Welcome to Alba Restaurant

A brief history

Since opening in 1989 ALBA has been at the forefront of contemporary Italian cooking and was named as 2014 winner of the best service by Toptable and came first in the “best city north” category in Square Meal 2012.

Despite having recently undergone a change of ownership and complete refurbishment the authenticity and friendliness of ALBA remains intact with Chef Hemin, who trained and honed his experience in numerous Michelin starred kitchens, preparing a wide variety of cuisine from all over Italy. The excellent food paired with our handpicked wine selection and attentive and charming service from the front of house team lead by Romeo Angelotti makes for the perfect dining experience.

As well as our elegant dining room, which includes art work by local artists, we offer two private rooms available for formal dining or more casual receptions as well as the ALBA Coffee Bar, located next door to the restaurant on WhitecrossStreet, EC1 offering freshly brewed Lavazza coffee to compliment the infamous salt-beef sandwiches and extensive selection of hot and chilled lunch options.

At ALBA we believe that dining out should be a special experience and we take every opportunity to ensure that all our customers feel that way. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

The best in City-North
