Wonderful evening dining outdoors.

Excellent ... food and experience
Todo estuvo perfecto
Altesi is terrific. Good bar, excellent wine list and diverse menu. Lots of things that I haven't seen elsewhere.
Fabulous food in an elegant setting!
Looks the restaurant had an event in their place before opening. So things were a bit in disarray. Food was ok but a bit expensive. There were 6 people in my party and kids menu or specials. Looks like us only good for the neighborhood folks that don’t mind overpriced meals and can afford them.
We are new to the area and LOVE this restaurant. Very welcoming group, food is delicious, & wine superb. This may be our new favorite. ♥️
Absolutely delicious food. Restaurant week lunch is a great deal.
The restaurant is lovely and I enjoyed dining there. I chose to go with the Restaurant Week menu for $21. For the first course I chose a salad which had shaved Brussel sprouts and apples. The size was quite small but it was enough. They offer breadsticks no bread. I had the Chicken Milanese as my main course. They placed the arugula and tomatoes in a light oil dressing on the side. The chicken was panko breaded fried crisp and light. The dish had no flavor or seasoning. Most the other dishes were pastas. It was prepared well but tasteless. We decided to order desert and ordered Tiramisu which cost $18. I do not think I would go back again to dine there noting the lack of seasoning of their food.
Dear Reviewer You changed the table 3 times and we still accommodate you and due to COVID we had to change everything you touched. Please note we have been selling chicken Milanese for last 7 years and no comment has been made. The same chicken on the menu cost $36 and you paid $21 for two courses and still unhappy. FAIRNESS BRINGS HAPPINESS!
Great Food. Awesome Wine List. Great Service. Charming Space. Welcoming owner & team
4 friends & I had an enjoyable restaurant week lunch here. The food was quite good. I particularly liked the vitello tonnato. Service was friendly.
Our first time visit to Altesi for a RW lunch. There were many options to choose from for appetizers and entrees. The brussel sprout/apple salad was delicious as was the oriechette/sausage/broccolirabe entree. Service was attentive but not bothersome.
Altesi’s service was outstanding. The food was delectable.
Will definitely recommend to friends!
As an Italian living in the US, I always try to avoid Italian restaurants as they never live up to my expectations and standards. Altesi exceeded them. Their pasta dishes are absolutely authentic and delicious. Would recommend!
Great dinner, the food was amazing, friendly and attentive service and positive atmosphere.
unpleasant waitress, loud demanding voice
Amazing service and food.
Excellent environment, friendly service, great menu choices and really decent food and drinks. Will be back. What a lovely restaurant, good food and service and atmosphere, definitely will go back.
What a delightful surprise. I was expecting a somewhat generic Italian food experience but what I got was exceptional. Attention to detail, refinement, playing, service, creativity, all excellent. I can’t wait to go back
Best ricotta cavatelli pasta in the world!
Comfortable, family run restaurant we've been going to for years. Food is wonderful but most of all, hospitality makes it a terrific neighborhood restaurant.
We had a diverse group — ranging from 18 to 81, and tastes varying from middle-of-the-road to rather demanding. We all enjoyed the meal. Service was great—informal, but attentive. The wine list was quite satisfying (we just ordered off the specials list and didn't look at the deeper main list). For me, the hit was the ravioli with porcini mushrooms.
We are still climbing out of the pandemic, and the restaurant was less than half full on the Saturday before the 4th of July.
As a regular diner here, I can recommend Altesi. It produces excellent meals without exception. Always reliable. Good food; good service; very friendly. So if you are looking for a good meal that won't disappoint, Altesi is your place.
Altesi is always a sure thing for a good meal with fine service. The Carciofi Giudia is a treat and the pasta is always cooked properly- -(about 15 seconds more than hard al dente, but never overcooked mushy).
Great meal. Super service. Looking forward to the next time.
Service excellent. Food, good traditional Italian, the carciofi salad was excellent as was the vitello tonato, (sans tomatoes would have been better). Pasta was good, my gran children are expert in pasta and they finished it up.
Their regular dining room is very nice, but their impromptu grotto was not, they could have disguised better that it was a reconverted dingy back patio. The tables outside on the sidewalks are OK, again they could have done a better job disguising some of the stuff.
The best desert tiramisu!!!
good food in a very pleasant atmosphere, with friendly staff
Great place, great staff, great food, great atmosphere. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
Wonderful to be back here again and find that it is still delicious and gracious
We sat outside, as it is still the pandemic. It is lovely with a brown curtain, and everything was exquisite!
Staff was very casually dressed. Roman artichokes are better elsewhere. Tiramisu was also just ok. At these prices the standard should be higher.
Wonderful food, service and ambiance!! Loved my Branzino!!
Our first time seeing friends. We are indoors as it was cold out. The tables were set far enough apart that we felt very safe. Food was outstanding. Service was slow as they’re slightly understaffed but perfectly fine under the circumstances. It felt great to be back at one of favorite restaurants!
Very nice, good food but too long mariachi music!
Everything lovely on a day outside!
I like Altesi, and this was only my second visit. We had to eat inside because it was rainy and the tables were nicely spaced that lunchtime, not many diners that day. The food is
good, the service both pleasant and quite adequate. I am likely to steer more friends there in the future and go back there myself.
