Our Story

Alba Restaurant was born in August 2019 to get local people of Sydney’s Inner West to taste and discover the genuine home-cooking cuisine from Salento, a beautiful province in the South of Puglia, Italy.

Our award-winning restaurant relies on our family's knowledge of Salentinian cuisine and our highly-acclaimed hospitality expertise. Using traditional recipe books dating to the early 19th century and the founder’s grandmother’s handwritten recipe books, our restaurant features typical dishes you won’t find anywhere else outside of Salento. We’re talking about the delicious deep-fried dough balls “Pittule”, the famous Leccese street food “Rustico Leccese”, the melting-in-your-mouth “Eggplant Parmigiana”, an incredible selection of fresh, homemade pasta and luscious desserts!

Alba has a warm atmosphere, welcoming staff, great weekly specials like ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT on Mondays, Meal Deal with live music on Tuesday evenings and a special price for weekend lunches. The perfect place for your next date or big gathering.
