Our dishwasher was broken with no repair in sight until next week, so we made an impromptu dinner decision tonight and headed over to Alberto's in Hyannis. Although we've always regarded this to be a reliable place for dinner, our meals were decidedly...meh. The proscuitto with melon had somewhat dried-out proscuitto and underripe melon, and the bruschetta was overly charred. Main courses were o.k. at best--even my ravenous teenager didn't finish his gnocchi, and I was underwhelmed with my veal zingarella.
Anyone else been to Alberto's recently? I'm wondering if we just had an off night or if this once-reliable spot is on a downward trend. Admittedly, I spent three weeks in Italy in April, which raises the bar a bit, but we were quite disappointed with our meal.
