    We visited this restaurant on our first night in Jasper. The menu looked good, pictures on the website looked good and some of the reviews were excellent. The place wasn't busy and lacked atmosphere. The food was mediocre at best. We both had chicken cacciatore which consisted of chicken thighs (cheapest cut of chicken) which was supposed to be in a rich tomato based sauce with various vegetables. We have had this dish in various restaurants and, yes, it is slightly different each time, but this was the worst we have ever had. The sauce was red with tiny bits of mushroom and not much else. We had pannacotta for dessert which was powdery and obviously made from a packet. Would not recommend.

    Very slow service & poor lighting (having booked a table we were sat in a dingy area next to the rest rooms). Although the food was very good, the complete lack of any Italian staff didn't add to the experience.

    Alba’s was advertised as serving Italian food, but it was far from good Italian. The lasagna was horrible: who puts carrots in lasagna? And the rigatoni was served with beef and a brown gravy, which was not very good.

    The food was amazing and the server was very helpful at making recommendations. However we were very disappointed that a couple that walked in before us (without a reservation) was seated at a table in a much better part of the restaurant with a nice view. We were sat in a dimly light booth in the back. We would have preferred the other table or being given the option of waiting for a table at the front of the restaurant as three of those tables were clear with in 10 minutes of our arrival.

    Service was terrific. Food was excellent and very well presented. Found it quite noisy from the bar area and kitchen. The table and chair furniture was on the rustic side. Not the place if you want fine dining but food was still terrific and service so very fast. Prices were reasonable for Jasper.

Wonderful menu and drink options. Wonderful place to visit while in Jasper. Don’t hesitate climbing a couple of flights of stairs!!

    Not great. The service was very slow - we waited a long time to be seated and served and it seemed like the serving staff didn't really care much about the customers. The food was average at best - the carpaccio appy was good, but the oxtail pasta was very bland and had hardly any meat in it and the shrimp risotto was also bland and came with a grand total of four shrimp in the dish. A very poor dinner out in Jasper. Not impressed and won't go back again.

    The wait staff was professional and attentive. The food was delicious. We had antipasto skewers, caborana pasta, and seafood pasta. The caborana came with an egg yolk on top and it was delicious. The seafood pasta came with mussels and shrimps and topped with arugula. The sauce was between a typical red sauce and the vodka sauce. Strongly recommend affogato which was served with espresso and two scoops of vanilla gelato.

    The food, service and cleanliness were outstanding. The only suggestion we provide, for consideration, is an option for marinara sauce or creamy tomato sauce - the seafood spaghetti and gnocchi were served in the same creamy tomato sauce.

    The large serving of crispy calamari was served with a spicy lemony sauce, which we did not like. We asked for another dipping sauce possibly a tzatziki or ranch like sauce, but the second sauce served was a plum sauce, which doesn’t really go with calamari, in my opinion.

    Presentation of appetizers and mains very well done. Go hungry as servings of pasta dishes, steak and desserts where more than ample…and delicious. I had asked for a birthday candle and was surprised and delighted at the unique presentation. Very good value and a definite “go again”.
