Gabriella lovely, nice atmosphere, like the daily specials and good food! Quiet!
Altesi is a wonderful, civilized place to go for dinner----the food is simple, fresh, excellent. Staff is delightful. Great place for a quiet dinner with friends or even someone who has a hard time in loud, annoying restaurants. We love this place!!
Outstanding food, lovely service, never too noisy
beautiful room, excellent food and service. I will be back
Another great dinner at Altesi. The food, service and the ambiance always delightful. Altesi keeps the standards high and that’s why we always love there!
Sunday night chef and food dreary day
Food was good, but server was unhelpful and had an attitude.
Dear Amy My waiter does not have attitude and only follows the rules. We do not allow refills of any soda and I am sorry for misjudgment. Thank you Paola
Wonderful, as always.
Excellent ambiance, service, food. We'll be back! Thank you.
Pricey, but such good food.
I had a shrimp appetizer that was beautiful to look at, and tasted even better. My pesto gnocchi , superb. We were a group of 5 adults, all,ordered something diferent, but all were happy with their choices of appetizer and entree, too full for dessert; everyone turned them down.
that was my 2nd time there. the food is amazing! they are happy to please you
One of our favorites. We always have at least one dinner here every time we come.
Everyone who served us from greeting to goodbye were personal and professional. The food was very good and not expensive. The wines were very good. This is a small, comfortable restaurant. I would not hesitate to return - there is much on the menu to enjoy.
Restaurant was recommended to us by a friend, so we thought obliged to pass along the compliments .
Altesi has consistently delicious food, often interestingly different preparations of classic dishes, and it is much-appreciated in our neighborhood.
The service could be improved.
Another good meal before seeing a broadway show. We came early, 6:00, only a few tables occupied so service was excellent, food was between good and great. Recommend the pistachio tartufo dessert, homemade with no chocolate shell.
Was a fantastic experience... great service, delicious food and highly recommend! Definitely will go back!
Went for restaurant week. Had heard good things about this restaurant. Food and service were excellent. We were seated near a very large party and as soon as another table was available the hostess came over and asked us if we would like to move. Very classy.
Had lunch here with my daughter during Restaurant Week. Ordered the watermelon salad and the sole. Outstanding. Service was wonderful. My only complaint: Wine was $18 a glass, and I ordered two glasses. That made my wine bill more expensive than my food!!!
delicious carpaccio appetizer, topped with arugula and shaved parma. Tasty tiramisu dessert .Ossa Bucca main was tender and delightful.
We ate there for restaurant week. Both of us enjoyed our meals and it was a great value.The tiaramsu was fabulous.
Great ambiance, wonderful food and service.
Tuesday, Aug 6 at 9 pm. Food was delicious. Restaurant week menu selections give a honest representation of the kitchen’s skill. Appetizer, entree and desert were nicely balanced taste and texture. The wait staff was professional and they went out of their way to make my party of three feel comfortable. Overall I highly recommend the Madison location.
Excellent service. Nice atmosphere. Food is v good. Some strange combinations such as burrata and broccoli.
The food was excellent and very nice decor. A little more of the older crowd but a very nice dining experience.
what a neighborhood gem we were able to find during restaurant week. absolutely loved it and the people that worked there were delightful. highly recommend
We have been in Altesi many times already and it never disappoints . This time we took advantage of the restaurant week menu they offered and as usually it was great. The menu offers nice option to choose from many more compared to other restaurants we have been to for restaurant week. The food was great, the service warm and attentive and the ambience is lovely. Well done and see you soon.
This is a lovely Italian restaurant on the upper Eastside in the 60s. They had a very good restaurant week menu served on Saturdays as well as a la carte. Wine list was good and reasonably priced. Would definitely go back again.
Food was very disappointing. It's a shame because the place is lovely.
Great little Upper East Side restaurant with excellent service!
Always most pleasant at Altesi. Will surely come back for more!
We were in from out of town for the weekend and wanted a nearby neighborhood restaurant. We couldn’t have been happier with the service and the meal.
Fabulous food, great service, space between tabled.
We travel to New York every two weeks and dinner at Altesi’s is always on our list. The food is outstanding and the service is always warm and friendly.
Wonderful place for good food and quiet atmosphere supporting conversation.
Perfect upper east side location, beautiful patio, wonderful food.
Lovely atmosphere. Good food, good wine selection. Lovely outdoor area in back. Never disappoints!
A bit pricey but well worth it. Calm ambiance, outstanding service and exquisite food. Roman artichokes delicious, mista salad amazingly fresh, Pastas perfectly prepared and the sauces are sublime. Warm, friendly service and overall a wonderful experience! Special requests handled graciously.
What a nice find so close to where I was staying. Restaurant was pretty quiet for the holiday weekend, but the four or five tables of diners were clearly enjoying themselves. The salads we ordered were spectacular, with the favorite being the endive, pear, blue cheese, orange with vinaigrette. A perfect light starter. That was followed by the pasta special of fresh thin pasta [cant recall the specific name] is a Rosa sauce with fresh green peas and lamb sausage. Spectacular. My friend had the watermelon cucumber salad that was the special, and the branzino related fish that was also one of the specials, and both were also delicious and beautifully presented. I couldn’t resist the pistachio tartufo, which was incredibly tasty, and my friend had the chocolate semifreddo with caramelized oranges that was also near perfection. And prices very reasonable, at least by NYC standards.
Went to dinner there after getting engaged. Missed other restaurants reservations while celebrating, and came right from hotel to restaurants. Nice quiet dinner with outdoor seating.
