There are a lot of old-school Italian places in Forest Hills, but we like Alberto for several reasons. There’s a big bar in front where you can eat pasta and watch TV, plus a dining room in the back with high ceilings and plenty of tables - a few of which are big, round, and good for large groups. More importantly, everyone’s really friendly here, they give you the equivalent of a whole loaf of bread with your meal, and the gnocchi are more or less as soft as the clouds you see from an airplane window.
