Duck ragu and black truffle puree with brussel sprouts
Filled with braised veal and tossed in diced fresh tomatoes and pistachio sauce
Thinly sliced beef with shaved white mushrooms, arugula, parmigiano and truffle oil
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!
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.
We had another terrific dinner at Altesi last Saturday night. Even though they were full, with almost all of the tables outside occupied. Nonetheless the service was timely, almost as it we were the only ones there. The food was delicious. The endive salad was perfect and the fish and the pasta spot on. All in all it was a perfect evening made so by the great folks at Altesi.
Friendly atmosphere. A little pricey.
Pleasant and attractive setting, attentive service and tasty, well-prepared food.
The very best Northern Italian fine dining.
Wonderful Service. We love the pasta.
Always fabulous, thank you Paolo!
Food and service was great. Definitely would go back.
nice ambience, quality food, pastas were excellent. Overall, very pricey on the sides and salads, and the tab,(inclusive of service)of $90 pp for a glass of wine, a salad and a pasta was a bit over the top.
As always great ambience, service and fantastic food. We really enjoyed our dinner. We recommend Altesi to everyone!
Great experience, food and service. Well spaced tables inside and beautiful outdoor set up. Everyone loved the food and the service was warm and friendly.
Food was incredible! Service was okay, but at least they were nice. Ambiance is great- UES vibes but it’s NY (so loud- we like it, but not for everyone). Definitely will be back :)
Unfortunately due to Covid restaurants are having a difficult time keeping the quality of food and services. I do hope things get better for restaurants.
Excellent food and service. As always.
Plenty of outdoor tables. Excellent service and delicious food.
Altesi was very good ,location amazing ,general manager very kind and professional. Only one unpleasant note: we are Italians we love the bread and no bread available. Only bread sticks. We’ll come back again for sure.
Delicious! Great service
