Last Friday night Hubby and I went out for a Date Night dinner to a local restuarant, Alberello, an Italian Restaurant in Bexley Village, Bexley. Alberello is a family run business serving lots of delicious traditional Italian cuisine. The last time we ate at this restuarant was 6 years ago, before we got married and had children. We had such a lovely evening with great food and brilliant service and a chance to have some husband and wife time, as ‘date nights’ are rare for us.
I would highly recommend this restaurant if you love Italian food. Both the food and service was exceptional, we had a bread basket to start while searching the menu trying to decide what delicious dish to pick. We both decided on a fish dish to start, Stuart had Mussels in a garlic sauce and I had fried Calamari with a wedge of lemon and Tartar sauce.
For our main meal, Stuart had the ‘Special of the Day’, Veal Chop cooked at the Chef’s recommendation of medium. I had a very succulent grilled Sirloin Steak cooked medium well done. Both dishes were served with a selection of homemade Cauliflower Cheese, Green Beans and Roast Potatoes. I can honestly say that this steak was by far one of the best steaks I have ever eaten, it was cooked to perfection, it was lovely and tender to eat and the Cauliflower Cheese was something else. I can be very fussy eating meat when out at a restuarant and this was definitely a good choice.
For dessert, (because it would be rude not too!) the dessert cart was wheeled to our table (it is hard to say no when you see all those yummy desserts staring at you!) We got two different desserts to share. We chose the Italian Berry Cheesecake, as it is my favourite type of cheesecake and Profitoroles, which were two giant profiteroles filled with ice cream and covered in a light chocolate cream.
We had a lovely evening at Alberello, here are a few snaps of our delicious food…
