I'm going to Trattoria Alberto for dinner tomorrow night for a birthday party. Despite previously working down the street for 5+ years, I've never dined there.
I'm not eating pasta these days (low-carb diet...ugh!) so I was wondering how some of their entrees are. Maybe a shrimp or chicken dish (as long as it doesn't have breading). Any recommendations for this place?

Make sure you ask directly the price of the specials or when they say, we could make up that dish for you. It's like Da Mimmo--they intentionally avoid mentioning about the specials prices and they're like double.
Their lamb chop is out of this world, a double cut that is thick and meaty. And perfectly seasoned and cooked. I believe you can order seafood and even poultry, so you shouldn't have a problem low-carbing it.
Their food is fantastic, I haven't had a thing I didn't like there. Standouts from our visits includes a veal carpaccio in milk appetizer, the aforementioned lamb chop, and a seafood salad app.
Enjoy! And please do report back. I would like to know what you ordered, and how your visit went. I am planning to go back soon, it's one of my go-to places when I want to feel like I'm back in Europe. :)
