This is a comfortable old school Italian family restaurant. The service is consistently good. The pizza is always tasty. The bar is always busy with regulars but the drink choices are very traditional and nothing inspired.

We were excited to visit Albanese's Roadhouse but ended up very disappointed. We got there a little after noon time (12:15pm) and the place had very little attendance. About 12:35pm we placed our order - which was spaghetti w/meaballs, 1 Gumba burger, 6 hot wings and an order of garlic bread. As we sat and waited folk started trickling in.... More

Waited a 1/2 hour at our table. Flagged a waitress. Ordered 2 drinks. Waited another 1/2 hour. Nothing. Flagged another waitress. She was great and very apologetic for the other server. Got the bill. Our drinks were $3.25 higher a piece than quoted and they were about 5 sips and done.The food was served hot and was good - however,... More

Whether looking for a quick pizza or a family meal, Albanese's offers everything. Great thin crust pizza and authentic Italian food. Or just stop in the bar area for a frosty beverage. You might run across the Bocce league in the summer time but no one minds if you watch. Great location, service & food - can't go wrong.

Serves a pretty good fish fry. My husband loved the clam chowder and cole slaw. Great crusty Italian bread served with meal.

A hankering for some clam linguine sent my cousin and me to Albanese's Roadhouse which came highly recommended by a family member who said the Roadhouse's clam dish is better than the one served at the original Albanese's. I give it an A- because there are no fresh steamed clams in the dish. That being said the pasta was terrific,... More

The service can sometimes be "iffy" but the food is consistently good. It is a family business and they take pride in their product.

We originally went here for pizza but ended up with lasagna and Rigatoni Sorrentina. Soup or salad came with the entrée. I had the salad and hubby had soup. Both good! We received Italian bread again good but how can you mess that up. Drinks were ordered and not sure what my husband received. He ordered a dark and stormy... More

Went with 4 other friends to celebrate a birthday. It was going to be a 45min. wait. No problem. We happily found seats at the bar. After 90 minutes, yes I did say 90 minutes we were seated. The waitstaff was terrible (and that is a compliment). There was no compensation for our wait time or even a sorry. I... More

Spent a lot of time as a kid at the riverwest location. Loved it. Won't come back to this one because the service is nothing short of awful. Sat down in the bar area no one came over. 10 mins later went and got my own menus. 10 mins later left since no one felt like coming to take our... More
