My partner and I absolutely loved this restaurant, our waiter Adrian, was so kind and friendly, made me and my partner laugh without an issue. I highly recommend this place if you love pasta, I had the Gnocchi parmigiana and it is to die for, my partner had the seafood spaghetti and didn’t leave a single bit. We definitely will be visiting again on our next trip

The ginger and carrot soup was so good that we wanted the recipe!
The lamb and duck entrees were equally as tasty.
Would highly recommend this restaurant and the service was perfect.
We'll be back - we need that soup recipe!!

We went to Jasper for our 20 year wedding anniversary. Alba was on our hit list of restaurants to try. It did not disappoint, and the Chef even made us a beautiful dessert display.

Went here Monday night for my birthday, had an amazing experience! The restaurant itself wasn’t busy, I’m assuming because of the weekend rush they must’ve had before. The chefs went out of their way to make us an extra appetizer which was delicious!! Food was amazing , and sever was awesome and very attentive. We will be back for sure! Great first experience.

The food was average. Came very quickly, almost too quickly like the pasta was already pre-cooked. Appetizer came after the meal.
Ambience and comfort could use some improvements. But otherwise the house wine was good and the service was professional. Thank you.

We had the calamari appetizer and it was very bland. The only real taste was the coating on the outside, no calamari taste at all

We had a very enjoyable dining experience for my birthday. My pasta dish the Mezzi Rigatoni with braised beef was very tasty! My wife enjoyed the seafood soup that was most delicious. She especially enjoyed the large tender shrimp. Our server was outstanding throughout our dining experience!

We really enjoyed our dinner at ALBA and our server (Matt?) was great too. My only criticism was that it has more of a lunch restaurant vibe - paper napkins and very plain decor. But regardless we will still be going back!

A wonderful evening! My husband and I enjoyed the calamari and arancini to start, and were blown away by how tasty the carbonara and the lamb shank entrees were. One of those comfort meals that you are still thinking about the next day!
Great attentive and knowledgable service, with friendly conversation and good COVID practices.
It was our first visit to ALBA, and it won't be our last - thanks to all the restaurant staff!

Alba disappointed us. The arancini from Superstore is better. The crostini looked great but were actually split commercial bakery buns and tasted odd. The duck was tough and undercooked, even for duck. The mushroom sauce on the ravioli was delicious.

In terms of food: Appetizers were decent, especially the arancini. Pastas has great texture & were well-cooked, but we’re brought down by the heavy overly salted sauces. Of the mains, we only tried the duck, which had decent flavours, but nowhere near the best we’ve tasted in terms of duck.

In terms of service: Friendly, with no problems. Seemed to maintain adequate cleanliness standards for our pandemic precautions.

Overall, an average experience.

This was our second time back and it did not disappoint! We highly recommend the steak as everything complimented each other so well and the entire dish was delicious! The carbonara alla Jasper was also delicious - the egg yolk really added extra flavour. Their bread basket is so simple yet so yummy - that was one of the highlights as well. Lastly, we ordered the beef carpaccio, which was good but wasn’t the star of the show. The service was really nice and value is good too. We’ll be back when we find ourselves in Jasper again!
