A newcomer to the always evolving dining scene in Collingswood is Albertino’s by the way of South Philly and a short stint in Berlin, NJ. They are completely family run establishment with everyone getting involved one way or another. The ambiance is low-key, yet welcoming. Service made you feel like you were a part of the family and dining at their own home being pleasant and friendly. Their was a tiny hiccup with timing from the kitchen as it seemed to be an hour or even longer from appetizer to main course being served with only two parties dining in the restaurant at the time so the wait wasn’t due to an influx of orders. The appetizer was Gamberi e Calamari Rustico – jumbo shrimp, calamari, black olives, plum tomato sauce, calabrian chile, white wine that was average in my opinion. Even though there was a long wait for the entree of Vitello di Albertino – thinly pounded domestic milk-fed, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, jumbo lump crab, demi glace, white wine, light cream it was a delicious treat and definitely recommend the dish for anyone that visits. I would give Albertino’s another try as I am interested to try more of the menu to see if they could become one of my regular destinations.
