    This was my second time dining at Altobeli's. The first time I sat in the room that has live entertainment. This time we sat in another dining room, which was perfect for conversation with the couple who joined us. I ordered a chicken dish over pasta with onions in wine sauce. The seasoning was subtle and delicious. One of my friends had mushroom ravioli which she raved about. Another friend had the beef tortellini which he said was outstanding. He comes from a traditional Italian home and knows good Italian food. He also had pasta fagioli soup which was excellent. My other friend had veal parmagan which was also very good. We shared 2 servings of lemon cake with marscapone frosting. That was outstanding.

    Had a table right in front of piano, and the entertainment was fantastic. Took too long to finally get waiter to order drinks, but after that, we had a blast, and very good food at reasonable prices. But the piano bar is the real draw here...Definitely coming back.

    The service was slow. The house salads and bread were awful. And the entrees were inedible. We sent the food back and left. They were apologetic, but it did not make up for the extremely bad food.

    We normally visit later in the evening for the entertainment, but since we had the kids (9 and 7) we wanted to make it an earlier night. (Reservations for 5pm) The attentiveness of the staff was phenomenal, the food was spectacular and all at a reasonable price. We have no problem ever bringing the kids for an early dinner again.....even though we still prefer the later romantic evening and the fun with the music. Definitely a gem!

    I cannot put into words the excellent customer service. We have visited the restaurant several times and have always had the same high level of customer service. Very accommodating. You can tell all employees take pride in their work. We see the same employees every time we have gone. That should tell you something with the owner/management.

    This neighborhood (and regional) restaurant has thrived for 25 years because of incredible food, intimate ambiance and excellent service, but what makes it extra-special is the live entertainment six nights a week. Local singers, piano players and small combos create the perfect ambiance for everything from romantic dinners to family birthdays. During my last visit, there was a very special Rat Pack Tribute show featuring Dr. Patrick Sallarulo (Sinatra), Mark Phillips (Dean Martin) and Thallas Amie (Sammy Davis Jr.), and it ROCKED!!! MC and DJ Rick Dovi kept stage activities moving perfectly, and it was a truly special event! I'll be staying on their e-mail list to watch for future special shows like this one!

    We were seated right next to the piano bar and unbeknownst to us, they started playing about 30 minutes into dinner. I don't believe anyone asked us if we wanted to show to each other during our meals. Other than location of our seat, the food was decent.

    I had very high hopes for dinner. The menu and pictures looked awesome. My husband and I were going out for my birthday. We try different restaurants all the time, our favorite is probably Italian. Unfortunately the only thing we enjoyed that night was the wine. I can't even describe the food or atmosphere as alright. We made reservations, it wasn't busy and we were Sat in the middle of everyone else there was plenty of room other places and the conversations were loud. Everything from the bread, appetizer and dinner weren't good. We didn't finish anything. My husband didn't even like the salad. Our server was very polite and pleasant.

    We were not aware that a buffet was our only option on Mother's Day. The quality of the food did not support the price. Table for 13 included a long bench seat which required everyone to get out of the booth to go to the buffet. Overall only a fair dining experience and this is only because we had our whole family together.

    Outstanding date night for my wife and I. Celebrating Mother's Day and Anniversary was a wonderful evening for both of us. The food was outstanding as it always has been my wife loved the Beef Chianti so very much, I had the Pescatore which was outstanding also. Wonderful listening to the Piano player as we were in the middle of our dinner and having our dessert. Such a romantic atmosphere, keep up the great work. Congratulations on your 25th anniversary and I can see why with the evening we had.

    We enjoyed our time Altobellis, but the tables are very close! We heard all about the NFL draft and felt like we were being watched while eating. I don't care anything about the NFL draft and just wanted a romantic dinner with my husband. Music was ok?!? Not the best singers,would have been happy with just the piano player playing Sinatra!

    The food and entertainment is good. The only recommendation is the owner and waiter tend to rush you through your meal. They want to get you waited on and out for the next visitor. This has happened a couple of times. Also the portions are big!

    Neighborhood Gem is the perfect description. In suburban Alpharetta, this Italian restaurant is unique in that it is not a chain or franchise. It has the character of a authentic local business that I find missing in the area. The ambiance is cool and dark, perfect for piano bar. We most recently went for the Easter Buffet and the food was fabulous and reasonably priced for a nice restaurant in the area. The service is always stellar. I drink hot tea instead of coffee, and it's a strong indication to me when a restaurant manages to bring water hot enough to brew the tea! (You'd be amazed how many nice restaurants mess such a simple thing up!)

    Altobeli's Restaurant is consistently reliable for outstanding food, service, and atmosphere. The Easter brunch offered a variety of appetizers and main dishes, as well as desserts, at quite reasonable prices. Especially noteworthy is that Altobelli's is one of the few restaurants in which one can actually carry on a conversation while dining without having to shout, while enjoying good music. (This refers to the brunch during the day, not the piano bar at night, which is another enjoyable experience altogether.)

    Took my girlfriend here for her birthday. The service was great, and we were helped by several members of the staff, all of whom were extremely friendly. The food was good too. I'm not a foodie like she is (I either like something of I don't), but we both really enjoyed our meal (Chicken Linguine Carbonara and Salmon with angel hair pasta). They have a large wine selection as well. Overall a great experience.
