We enjoyed our meal and found everyone who works there to be very nice. My chicken was a bit too salty even though I asked for no salt. The frisbee salad was fabulous.
I was there only for one lunch. It was quite empty around 1:30. I will come again as I like that it was quiet for conversation and the ambiance is very attractive.
My simple pasta with tomato and mozzarella was al dente but had too much sauce.
A very worthwhile restaurant. The decore is lovely. The tables are spaced well apart from each other. The staff is friendly and attentive. Most important, the Italian food is very good. Most of the menu is traditional Italian, but some is inovative and delicious.
Wonderful Italian food!
We booked Altesi on New Year's Eve and looked forward to a very special evening. All in all, it was terrible, bad food, very hectic service and high prices! We were freezing, because the heating was not switched on.
We can't recommend this restaurant!!!
Dined here on New Years Eve with our daughter, son in law and two month old grandson. Arrived early to avoid too much noise. They were very accommodating. We started with champagne and then with spit orders of ravioli and gnocchi, delicious. Segued to prosciutto and melon and then on to rack of lamb, halibut and salmon. Ca Marcanda Magari wine. All excellent. This is kind of an undiscovered jewel in our neighborhood.
Very comfortable restaurant. Hostess is excellent. Choice is pan Italian. Wine list is complete.
Some of the best Italian food we have ever had. The service is warm and friendly and the food is outstanding. This is our favorite restaurant when we come to New York. It is just wonderful. And if you like original iced tea they have the best in the city.
Small, yet pricey portions
Viola was an amazing server and made our dining experience very special!
Thia place is not trendy or flashy but authentic with class.
Good food. Attentive service. Quiet enough for conversation during dinner. A little pricey but in line with local restaurants.
Good for all occasion
Great decor - beautiful and calm
Altesi is a great find. Very attractive; calm, welcoming ambience. Superb food at a recent lunch. Enthusiastically recommend.
This really is a superb restaurant in every dimension. I have eaten there 3 times and intend to become a regular.
The best Italian food I have eaten. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Good neighborhood restaurant. It's easy to become recognized as a client. Staff is really nice.
this is a quiet restaurant with reasonably good food. More for those who like to converse and not have their ears hurt. Food was very good, not great, good enough considering it was quiet...
Pretty restaurant. Food excellent. No energy (vibe) at all. Service very good. Thursday night at 7:30, most tables unoccupied. The bar empty. They need to get the word out.
Our first visit to Altesi. Food was great, service was gracious, and wine list was both excellent and reasonably priced. After nights of going to various overly loud and overly expensive restaurants around town during our annual visit, it was a slice of heaven to dine at Altesi and enjoy conversation without shouting while eating a truly lovely meal.
Good food - nice place for lunch for some delicious Italian fare. Good selection of wines available. We just had Panini's for lunch and they were delicious. Service was pleasant and not rushed which made for a very relaxing lunch. Chairs are pretty comfortable as well .. I would have like to tried some of the pasta and salads which looked really delicious. next time...
We’ve been going to this location since they opened. Have only been for dinner.
Always a pleasant experience. Staff cheerful. They recall faces, if not names. Food delicious and a good wine list. Nice quaint bar.
It was a hot night and I was looking for a good excuse not to cook. We enjoyed a relaxing dinner with excellent food, lovely wine and attentive service.
Table was ready when we got there, even though we were a little early. Fantastic food and service. Definitely a do-over!
Food and service is top notch.
We tried this restaurant during restaurant week. The food was fabulous and tge service was great!!! I highly recommend this place.
Excellent job. We were extremely pleased and have recommended it to our foodie friend
The staff is attentive, caring and friendly. The food was delicious. Went for Restaurant Week. Will definitely return
In our neighborhood...often take friends. Always dependable with very good to excellent food, large wine selection, and excellent service.
Food was amazing. Excellent service. The place is beautiful and classy
Consistently great in every category- food excellent and quiet ambiance for conversation.
Nice place to eat the food was great and our hostess was very attentive
Outstanding in every way. We came with group of friends for the restaurant week menu which was great. I must say it was one of the best restaurant week menu option that I have ever tried. Food was delicious and the service wonderful. I can’t wait to return and introduce more friends to this special place.
We celebrated birthday at this truly lovely restaurant. Food was amazing and the service warm and professional. The decor is beautiful and elegant. It was just perfect experience from beginning to end.
Lovely Restaurant Week experience, attractive setting, quiet. But regular menu is overpriced.
Small portions. Three small meatballs with a small lump of salty salad for an appetizer was disappointing. Portions of everything served were small. Wine was ridiculously overpriced. $16 for a glass of rose is an insult. We felt totally ripped off. The restaurant had very few occupied tables, so I suspect other people must feel the same way we did. I don't suggest to anyone to eat at this restaurant when there are so many good ones to choose from.
It was my the first visit this restaurant and I was nice surprised. The food is excellent, we tried sea food, pasta, mozzarella and everything tasted so good! I will definitely come back!
We were there with little children and it`s a shame that they do not have crayons at least...
Extensive wine list, and the best scallops I have ever eaten!
This was our first time at Altesi and looking forward to returning. Food was fabulous, service excellent and nice and quiet. On a nice evening you can dine outside in their garden.
A neighborhood gem! The food and service are excellent.
