I am never disappointed by Ignacio Mattos! A fan of his other restaurants, this was my first trip to Cafe Altro. The food is wonderful and the staff is thoughtful! Highly recommend for anything from a weekend lunch to a special occasion dinner.

This place is awesome - go here! We got arancini (to die for), fennel salad (so fresh and crisp), carpaccio (at the waiter's suggestion, get every component in each bite and its awesome, avoid if you aren't a carpaccio fan), octopus (super fresh, perfectly cooked), cacio e pepe pasta (again, perfectly cooked and perfectly sauced), the burger (it was awesome). Our waiter was really great - personable, friendly, he just brought us different wines to taste and chose with our courses. Can't wait to go back!

The place is beautiful and cozy although the food was average... not bad but not good either. They try to be creative in their menu but it doesn’t taste right for example their mozzarella ... a mix of sweet and spicy and smoky...also the quantities were too small... and I come from Switzerland it’s so I am used to it ... finally it’s too expensive for what it is..

I liked the atmosphere right away upon entering this beautiful space. I selected this locationas I was celebrating my birthday with a few close friends. This was our first time at Altro Paradiso and it will not be our last.
We were very well cared for, the quality of the food exceptional and, the service was casual yet attentive. We all agreed that Anthony was an excellent server!

Such a great dining experience! We didn't really know what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. Food was delicious (definitely try the arancini) and very fresh. The service was outstanding, our server was very friendly, attentive, efficient and gave us great tips on the menu. The atmosphere was perfect for a Sunday lunch, cozy but classy, we sat by the window so there was plenty of light, and we just felt very comfortable there. Will definitely return and would recommend!

Definitely worth the drive from Long Island; the appetizers were delicious including the fennel salad, the cold meat platter and the rice balls. Main courses were awesome, a whole dorade cooked perfectly, two amazing pastas and the steak. Add to that a very friendly and efficient staff. Will definitely be back.

We went for brunch based on this being under the category “good for brunch” on open table but it wasn’t what you would expect for brunch food. Regardless, food was amazing, ambiance was lovely.

Came here for brunch after reading about it being one of the top places in town to go to. The eggs a l'amatriciana which were fantastic, but the remaining menu is very short and the starters and remaining dishes we tried were good, but nothing special, nor did they really make for a great brunch. I probably would recommend it for a lunch/dinner if you are in the area.

All great, the food, service, decor. BUT and it's a big BUT,
the music is much too loud. This created a challenge to being
able to hear each other.
I was there three times last week, every time loved everything
but the noise level is a problem and I may not return unless
they do something about turning down the music.
I would have been there a 4th time but my dinner companion that time did not
want to go there because it's too loud.
Please just do that and you will double the number of people who go.

My parents meeting boyfriends for the first time. Good mix of approachable and adventurous. Excellent service and nice ambience! Food was delicious. Loved the Cacio e Pepe and the savory egg pie! Pomodoro was a little plain. Great cappuccinos! Would go back for dinner. Brunch felt like a great value.

Although it is expensive you get something for your money. I wish I wish I wish these restaurants were quieter. It is exhausting to go out for dinner when you have to yell across the table.

This was the first time we went to Café Altro Paradiso. Everything was delicious and the service was outstanding. The waiter was very attentive. There were six of us and we were not rushed and we were able to enjoy our brunch without any feeling of being pushed out.

We would definitely go back there.

Went for Valentines Day got a last min reservation. The food was just not good. Beef Tartare with truffles was gross. The halibut was rubbery and in the dark lighting it looked not appetizing with white sauce douzed over fish...and tasted bad. Polenta main dish was horrible.. but i guess when is polenta ever good. Best thing was bread w/ ricotta cheese in the beginning and maybe the citrus salad and pappardalle was ok. Would not recommend the food based on my experience.
