We ate here on our first night in rancho Mirage and were able to walk from our hotel. The atmosphere is cozy, clean and welcoming. The wait staff were very nice, stopping to chat and share information on the area. The dishes we ordered were excellent ! Our waiter brought us spumoni for dessert saying " special for Canadians!" we laughed, but ate and enjoyed with appreciation ! It was a lovely welcome to California and to sit in a quiet place with NOT a blaring TV or stereo in sight ! Thank-you staff of Alberto's !
