They charged more to my card than I signed for... The food was good. The music was loud even though it was a Sunday evening, so we had to talk loudly to be heard. Most importantly, when I checked my bank statement, they overcharged my card by $25. Waiting for a response from the restaurant at this point.

Waitress doesn’t know what is Jäegermeister, only 2 kinds of unknown tequilas, , no draft beer, on menu said “wild caught salmon” but was brought farm raised salmon, I do know how wild caught looks, so overall not a good place to go, also music was very loud , had to yell to be heard.

Drinks and food are OK but the juke box ate my money and didn't let me play anything afterwards. Maybe put a sign up or something? Just saying...

We ate at the rooftop to enjoy the weather and the food came out so delicious. We had the bolognese, seafood fra davioli, and salmon. The seafood fra davioli included half a lobster tail and a claw. The bolognese was one of the best I've ever had. Every dish was great. Would def come again to try other dishes

I have been here for dinner several times. It can be a bit confusing as the building/door is under the banner of Alba steakhouse and the Zef Cicchetti part is all faded like it doesn't exist anymore. Fear not! Its all one and the same. You have to go to the door on the corner to get into the establishment, including the rooftop dining. The rooftop is very nice, with a full bar and tv, that is perfect for warm days.The restaurant is basically broken into three sections. The upstairs rooftop deck, and then the three dining areas downstairs. One is mainly booths and seems more upscale dining. Then there is a bar/dining area and then a smaller table section beyond that. I have eaten at each of these except the downstairs bar.Each time, the servers have been attentive without rushing. The food was always DELICIOUS. If you are a big seafood lover like I am, you can order crab cakes and raw oysters for an appetizer. These were the best raw oysters I've ever had in my life. For entrees we got the Diavolo linguine and the grilled octopus. Both were very tasty. We also got an order of truffle fries with turned out to be addictive and I have ordered every time I have returned to this place since! It all paired nicely with a Chianti red wine.Suitable for solo, friends, families and dates. More upscale and pricey but well worth it in the food!Parking can be a bit of a run around on this busy restaurant street, so you may need to drive up and around the side streets to find parking. There is a small free parking lot on the corner of Hancock and Walter J. Hannon that may have spots.

Very fancy nice place for a special occasion. The price makes it hard at least for me to make it a regular spot. The quality of ingredient is excellent and service is attentive. One of the best in Quincy if not the best.

I went here January 2020 for dinner at around 8 pm. We basically had the restaurant to ourselves. It can be a bit confusing as the building/door is under the banner of Alba steakhouse and the Zef cicchetti part is all faded like it doesn't exist anymore. Fear not! Its all one and the same. You have to go to the door on the corner to get into the establishment, including the rooftop dining. The rooftop is very nice, with a full bar and tv, perfect for warm days. We sat in a nice booth and our server was attentive without rushing. The food was DELICIOUS. I'm a big seafood lover and we went with that theme for dinner.

We also got an order of truffle fries with turned out to be addictive. It all paired nicely with a Chianti red wine. I would for sure come here again. Suitable for solo, friends, families and dates. More upscale and pricey of a setting but well worth it in the food!

Amazing food atmosphere and service

I was highly impressed by all aspects of this place.

One of the best places to enjoy three environments at once. You can either have cocktails and appetizers at the terrace during the summer time, watch a game at the ample bar downstairs or have a formal dinner for a date or with family at their well decorated dinner tables. Their selection for seafood and comfort dishes makes this eclectic restaurant an excellent choice in downtown Quincy.

So disappointed. Fra Diavolo used to be my favorite. It was tasteless, shrimp and lobster tasted like it was soaked in bleach, mussels were smaller than a sunflower seed. Bartender did nothing but swear and complain, woman beside me flipped her long hair so much while flirty with potty mouth bartender, that she whipped it onto my lap and swiped my napkin off of my lap. A few years back while living in Quincy we ate at Alba at least twice a week for years. Have missed Quincy restaurants since moving to Weymouth. After tonight, we will stay in Weymouth next time..great restaurants right here in town, especially Venetian. Now one of our favorite Italian restaurants.

Zef Chicchetti executed everything perfectly. The fra diavolo is out of this world good. This place has a great Atmosphere an excellent service. It'll be confusing how it's both Alba and Zef, it actually doesn't really make sense and it's confusing for patrons. I would give them five stars if they always answer the phone now, but they don't and it's hard to make a Reservation when someone doesn't answer the phone.

Amazing!!!! Awesome food, the best service, we love coming back here time and time again

Food is so good and the vibe of the rooftop bar is just perfect. Rooftop opens at 4 and quickly fills up. If you want to go on a Friday or Saturday, get there as close to opening as you can!

They were playing loud music whole night long on a Sunday night. Sorry never been there and won’t consider go there in the future either.
