Cafe Altro used to be a neighborhood gem however lately it's so downmarket catering to B&T and tourist crowd it might as well be located in Jersey. Fortunately for the SoHo/Tribeca crowd new restaurants that embody local Manhattan spirit are popping up in the the neighborhood

I dream of their fennel salad— it is that good! And the burrata, and the arancini and the extraordinary bread and the “olive oil trio” that accompanies it. Often I don’t get past the top of the menu as there are so many exceptional starters. But when I do succeed, I am never ever disappointed. I could eat every meal of the day at Cafe Altro Paradiso —that would be truly fine.

Unbelievable food. Flavors come in waves from ingredient combinations you would never imagine together. Served family style with numerous unhurried courses makes dining an experience rather than a race to get customers out. Best restaurant, food and experience, I've had in years. It is obvious the chef loves, and truly knows, food. Can't say enough positive things. Great, great dining experience.

This reservation was for a birthday. The food was great. Seating was a little tight, the staff kept hitting my chair and running into my shoulder, but the service was great. I would definitely go back. It is not a good place for a party larger than 8.

Having eaten here many times I can say that the food is consistently outstanding, the service unpretentious and the ambiance relaxed. Highly recommended is the sausage, the grilled octopus and any of the salads, any of the fresh pasta dishes and the swordfish when on the menu and the delicious liver dish(be warned it can be bloody unless you request that it be cooked more). Enjoy!

Our fourth time here and each time has been fabulous. Always interesting wines, helpful and informative service, cool vibe, and most important delicious food. The best roasted branzino I have ever had either in a restaurant or at home. Not sure how they made it so good – just a simple preparation but perfectly crunchy skin, a hint of lemon, some fennel stuffed in the cavity. Unbelievable. Burrata is always great. Beet salad. I will be back.

I think the sticky bun with chocolate and hazelnuts was possibly the greatest pastry I have ever eaten. It was simply delicious. Our other dishes were equally impressive.

A mellow setting, with excellent but unintrusive service and perfectly sized dishes.

Very mixed experience: a great server, pleasantly lively place, excellent bread, excellent martini, octopus with garbanzos? Not as tender as I'd expected and the garbanzos (a major component of dish) were, to my taste, far too firm . The pasta was tasty but unremarkable. Meh.

We liked the ambient, the service but we ordered a special plate with truffles and they were “dead” . I mean no flavor at all! When we complained with the manager she said the chef tasted every dish and that was a kind of truffle that tasts lighter.
We were very upset because we know truffles and we already tated a “dead one” and that was the case.

We ate at CAP when it first opened and were not impressed. Now, after a make-over, we can say the opposite. A Ggacious welcome, excellent service, a menu that offers many good-sounding offerings, and light that flatters everyone combine to make our dining pleasant. We began with cocktails and wine by the glass: both fine, especially the classic martini. A shared octopus appetizers was followed by the pici and cacao e pepe, all very good and cooked to perfection. A highlight was the bread; if not the best we have had in a NYC restaurant, then close to it. All in all, a lovely dining experience.

Excellent food - we'll definitely be back. A bit on the pricey side, but well worth it for a fun or special outing. The bread, ricotta and olive oil that they give to all tables was excellent. We got the arancini (a must!) and burrata to start. Definitely get the arancini! So, so delicious. For our mains we got two pastas. The Malfatti (ricotta dumplings with cherry tomatoes, pancetta and Pecorino) was phenomenal. Would definitely order that again. The other pasta we got (forgot the name...) had bolognese and was saltier, but still excellent. The flavors were great, but we thought the flavors in the malfatti were better. Everything was so rich we couldn't try the desserts, but I'm sure they are also really tasty.

Summary: Get the arancini and malfatti. :)

I absolutely adore this place. I've been twice in the past few weeks and the service has been perfect. The interior is reliably cozy and comfortable. The beef carpaccio is to die for. I don't know what they put in the butter that accompanies the bread but it is so, so, so good. I've tried a few of the pastas and like the squid ink one (pici de nero?) best. Phenomenal fig gelato, great wine. Quickly becoming my go-to spot for bringing out-of-town visitors.

I had Sunday brunch here with two friends. The service, food and wine were all remarkably good. The room is really beautiful and was filled with natural light. The seating was comfortable and the noise level low. The whole experience was very relaxing and felt special. I am looking forward to returning soon and trying the groups other Manhattan restaurants.

My husband and I went for lunch on a Friday afternoon and it was very quiet. I was looking forward to trying this place but left disappointed. I had a ravioli dish that came out looking sloppy on the plate and the flavors fell flat, and it was smothered in oil. It tasted okay but didn't leave me wanting more. My husband had the fish sandwich which was spicy and he liked it, I guess as much as you can like breaded fish sandwich. Atmosphere is nice, clean & modern with high ceilings. And our wine & cocktail was good.

One of the best lunches I've had in New York. Fennel and Castelvetrano olive salad and Malfatti (ricotta dumplings) were a perfect balance for lunch - light and amazingly flavorful. I could have eaten two more servings of each. I highly recommended you try it.
