An extremely popular Italian restaurant, convenient for shoppers as it’s set in the Loom retail park. Locals praise this eatery highly, with reviews splattered with adjectives such as “amazing” and “fabulous”. Book ahead because this place gets busy – and with its large wine list, outdoor terrace and quality ingredients, it’s easy to see why.

When we arrived asked us name behind us 3 people asked them also their name and booking the. Said follow me tried to sit us down then, them at different table looked like try to save them walking up and down restaurant, service very poor hand mussels no wipes or finger bowel hand fillet steak special paste which was lovely, if I had to disprove this restaurant service extremely poor, food is good but again when having a desert given a tea spoon to eat it with will definitely not be going back

First time at this place .a little nervy as to the quality. However I need not have been staff attentive but not overpowering. Food quality excellent. Prices also attractive. All in all a very good meal and evening.

Absolutely top notch food. Fresh cooked. Reasonably priced Not a huge lager/Beer choice if I had to put a con but its an Italian restaurant, they are going to have mostly Italian beers/lagers so not really an issue. Just an observation

Came here as a group of 13 (mixed adults and children) for my fiancees birthday meal. The service was excellent, drink orders were done straight away and the servers were brilliant. The food was delicious, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dishes. We will definitely be returning, it was a really enjoyable evening. Thank you :)

Visited for the first time last night for a birthday celebration, service started poorly with missing starters and placing of orders only to be told later that they didn’t have what we had ordered, but think the young girl serving us was new so can be forgiven - but the food more than made up for it - there was an older guy who took over serving us - what a gem he was. Made our night, such a character - won’t be the last time we visit!

The food was excellent. The staff friendly and courteous. Parking is easy, disabled friendly too. This should be shouted as a great new asset to Leigh.

Great food , but service was poor. Different people taking our order some waitresses looked miserable , first drinks ordered were missed and had to order again , when splitting the bill into 3 payers they took 4 payments and the guy with the card payment said he only takes for the money and doesn't see the bill ??? Guess we could of paid £10 each then pal ?? Got it refunded but I would rush to go back

Food was absolutely delicious, we got 4 dishes and 2 sides between 2 of us, and that was plenty. The cocktails were also very good and really unique. The service was great, with the staff being very friendly and happy to help. Definitely going again. Thank you!!!

Once again, we were well looked after and I don't believe it was a fluke; the service was excellent, the meal was excellent, and the personnel were very attentive even though the restaurant was busy. Thank you for taking such good care of us.

We had a lovely St.Valentine's Day lunch of Pizza Marinara and Grilled Salmon followed by Oreo Cheesecake and Tiramisu. All perfect and authentic. Also enjoyed chatting in Italian to the staff! Very friendly. Would highly recommend and will definitely return soon.

Found this by chance as were nearby for the afternoon. Spotlessly clean establishment, a warm friendly welcome on arrival and impeccable service throughout. Our starters and mains were absolutely divine. Definitely up there with the tastiest authentic Italian food I have eaten. I wish we lived nearer!

They accommodated our large party really well and kept everyone happy and well served. Food was all really tasty and was great value. Will come again.

Food was fantastic. Service was lacking. After being seated we waited half an hour without menus or place settings. Once I'd asked for menus the waiters were very attentive and the food soon arrived. We were very happy with the flavours and food quality. We ordered more drinks and the small glass of wine came back as a large glass (I drank it and paid full price). We waited a considerable amount of time after asking for the bill before I went to the bar and asked again. Despite the service problems I will return

Food is okay, starter is great! Service was a bit dismal as half are walking around unsure. One member of staff didn't even know what products are on the menu. Only one fellow who knows his job well and provides excellent service but didn't catch his name. We had an eligible discount code to use when paying but we was told to 'just pay please'.

The food here is fantastic. Its leigh towns best kept secret. If it was located in Manchester city centre it would be a roaring success even more. Great family run Italian. 10 out of 10 If done a few Italian restaurants in Italy and this is fabulous.

Prompt, attentive and extremely friendly service in very comfortable surroundings, this was our first time here at Don Alberto's. Sunday night was just busy enough to create a lovely warm atmosphere but not overly rushed busy in any way. Calamari and the Goats cheese were the starters and very tasty they were. Very freshly cooked too. Fillet steak and the Salami pasta for mains both exceptionally tasty and well cooked. Great experience, well worth a visit.

Lovely authentic food with quick service. Waiting staff create a calm, welcoming atmosphere where nothing is too much trouble, and they genuinely care about their customers. Modern, cosy place, ideal for dates. Well worth a visit.

This was our first visit here and certainly won't be the last! From entering the premises to us leaving, the staff were very welcoming, attentive but not intrusive. The food is excellent, hot and served on hot plates. Thank you, we will be back.

Great food at good prices. We had a party of 9 on a busy night and we were seated at the correct booking time with plenty of room. Starters were bought out fairly quickly and nearly all together. Wonderful food and great variety as we all had different starters. Main meals were wonderful and staff very attentive to all our needs. Even extra chillies on some meals. Drinks served quickly and we were not rushed out. A fantastic place and very reasonable... we will be back there soon.

Top place this. Food is unbelievable! Talent chefs at this place! Owner fitted us in as we hadn't booked, staff were brilliant. There's so much to choose from on the menu. A suggestion would be to choose from 3 dishes on the menu and have little plates of the 3 choices? Food is excellent!

This is the second time visiting and both times have been great. All of the staff are amazing, Sal the manager, Brogan and Alessandro our servers, Pepe, Alexa, Cristina, I can’t remember everyone’s names! All of them were great and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Not to mention that the food was delicious! Cannot fault it! Will definitely be back here again, I think this might be our new place of choice for special occasions!

We have just been for wedding anniversary meal, myself, husband and two girls. This was our first visit and I can honestly say I wasn't disappointed. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and kept our little ones entertained with their jokes and all round loveliness. The food was absolutely gorgeous too! We did have a little wait in-between meals, but we weren't bothered or hardly noticed because of the chilled out relaxed atmosphere! lovely place! We will definitely be back! Thankyou so much!!

Our steak and risotto were delicious. Team we’re friendly and polite and while service was slow they did keep checking on us. Lovely outside area next to the canal. We went to eat before the cinema and didn’t realise there’s a 5hr limit on free car parking at the Looms - big shock to receive a parking notice a £60 fine a week later.

Fabulous service, everyone is super helpful and friendly. Food is insanely delicious, and the price is brilliant! The atmosphere and general look of the place is amazing too, with a cute little outdoors area! Honestly not been this impressed with a restaurant in a long while. however vegetarian options are slightly limited, but the options you have all sound delicious not just bog basic like you get in a lot of places.

We went to this resteraunt Sunday evening after a recommendation from a friend....we were not disappointed! What a fabulous place we had a drink at the bar whilst we waited a few minutes for our table. The resteraunt itself is clean and very stylish it had a great atmosphere. There are a variety of dishes to choose from and you can see the cooking station from your table! Our food came quickly and was absolutely gorgeous! The staff are courteous and attentive we had such a lovely evening we will definitely be coming back! I highly recommend the Tiramusu delicious!!!

We arrived to the restaurant at 8pm for a table at 20:30. Table was ready so we just all sat down after ordering drinks at the bar. The party was for 24 people but they'd only made the table for 22. Once that was sorted, we all sat down and waited on our starters as we had such a large group, we had pre-ordered everything. Took a while for the starters to arrive but couldn't fault my starter which was King Prawns, lovely. Then we waited a while again for our main meals to arrive but again this was probably down to having a large group/party. I had Salmon for my main which got to be honest, my plate looked sad as there wasn't a lot there for £17.00, think I had more on my starter than my main. I also asked for the childrens meals to come out with the starters but they didn't so the kids had to wait. Drinks were ok, didn't really have a price menu for glasses of Prosecco only bottles but they serve it by the glass. Ordered some ice cream for 1 of the children which took over 30 mintues to arrive and I had to ask 3 times for it to be sent over. All in all, I would go back but maybe in a smaller party as I think they'd cope better. 😊

This is a posh restaurant that doesn't have a dress code (in the day anyways). But you could really dress up and not feel over dressed. We were a large party and we all enjoyed the food and Bruno, who has a very dry sense of humour and was lovely. The menu doesn't really give you much in the way of vegan and or gluten free but if you ask for it they will supply it without a fuss and my vegan gluten free meal was delicious. All the portions were bountiful. We would definitely go back there...
