So appreciated and rare to find a restaurant where the food is fabulous and you can actually have a conversation with your tablemates and not have to shout at them.
Very good first time. Great food and lovely waiter!!
Decent ambience, good service. The appetizers and salad were really spectacular. Main dishes were creative and compelling but a bit on the salty side for my taste.
The restaurant is beautiful. We were warmly greeted by the lovely hostess. We were seated ...and then thoughtfully reseated when an even quieter table opened up. The service was perfect. The food would have been as stellar as everything else if the chef had used less salt. I am a salter, but when I am crunching on salt crystals with every bite, I think the chef is too heavy handed. We’ve eaten here a number of times and have always dined well. The other night was our first experience with extreme salt.
Attentive, professional service. Appetizers and pasta were great: carpaccio and endive salad delicious, Amatriciana was tasty and porky, but it could have been spicier. Mains were only good. A very thick pork chop could have used a more thorough, patient cooking. Tilefish was tasty, but overall uninspiring. Side of greens was tasty but very small.
Always a good time, lovely service, food and ambiance!
The only word for Café Altro Paradiso is divine. The fennel salad was sublime, as expected. The tuna tartare was great and the octopus appetizer was exceptional. Super friendly no-attitude place. Dessert of the day - quince tart - delicious. I would eat one meal a day here at least if I could organize to do that!
It was a little strange for two reasons. Although the food and service were truly outstanding, a wine was served that should have been aged more before opening it. Although not bad, it was too tannic. I did not send it back, because it was not bad. It was just too young. It should not have been offered as a menu choice.
The second strange thing was that the tables are very close together, and so it became uncomfortable when a couple was seated next to us (we were on dessert, thankfully) and proceeded to engage in prolonged kissing and fondling. We couldn’t believe it, and wondered what management would do. The answer was that they did nothing. Rather than have coffee and an after dinner drink, we chose to leave instead.
Love the place & the service. My wine (an Italian white) was kind of cloudy and not very good. My food - a sort of quiche - was cold & then taken away for a warm up, but still returned quite cold (and not room temp, as advertised). The service was excellent and very concerned about our well being, so I didn’t want to send it back a second time - after all, you want to eat w yr friend!
All in all a nice experience, I’d go back in spite of these little snafus.
great food and excelent service at this trendy italian.
Amazing endive salad, tartare and panna cotta.
It was a pleasure dining in a stylish restaurant with outstanding service and food. Our party was treated warmly and attended throughout the meal with appreciation. Water glasses were kept full and refills of the delicious crusty bread were offered before we could ask for more. We shared the Dorado and steak Florentine. Both were heavenly and done to perfection. We shared 2 pastas, which were each delightful. The meal ended with the profiteroles. The pastry of the profiterole itself was one of the best that I have had anywhere. The consistency was perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Beautiful food, thoughtful wines, hard to find fault with this gem
Cafe Altro Paradiso est une excellente adresse : cuisine raffinée, déco tendance et service attentionné. Je recommanderais le restaurant à tous mes amis de passage à NY.
This place is solid. Go ahead and get that thing on the menu. It will be better than you expect.
This is one of my favorite restaurant,
I’m going often and bring my friends.
The foods are amazing!!
Very noisy...good food...expensive
$62 pork chop ????
The salads and pastas were outstanding! Very cozy spot.
Food is very good but wine not at service temperature (too cold)
The cacio e pepe was incredibly salty and subpar compared to my first experience of the restaurant last year. Its clearly and sadly a downhill experience for me.
My mom took me out to lunch and we loved the charcuterie board!
gotta fix the lock on the rest room....kitchen guy charged in while occupied...embarrassing but otherwise an outstanding night.
Atmosphere and music are wonderful. Food is creative and testy: burrata is delicious! Service very kind. See you soon!
Great food, great service, and overall very attentive experience.
This has become a neighborhood favorite for me. We were a little early for dinner but were graciously offered a seat at the bar with a drink until dinner service would begin. The appetizers and main course of steak with a pat of blue cheese were excellent. What completed the evening was the impeccable service. Bravo!
Really excellent pasta and a very interesting wine list.
Amazing dinner, delicious food. Thank you!!
I was very disappointed in the food at this restaurant which came highly recommended. I consider myself an above average home chef. This meal did not even come close to something I would prepare at home. I don't mind spending money on a great meal. This was not a great meal. I wanted to love it, but just couldn't.
Peter at the bar is amazing
Las bruschetta son I guapa les, la ensalada de endivias maravillosas.
El cocinero Ignacio Matos es sin lugar a dudas el mejor nuevo cocinero en NYC.
Recuerden buscar siempre al fondo del plato, allí esconde siempre su tesoro el cocinero.
The food and the service were fun, delicious and energtic! Gret night.
From the friendly and knowledgeable service, to the wonderfully executed food, Cafe Altro Paradiso never misses a step. Special nod to the front of the house women who were especially kind to us. Thank you for a lovely evening.
The food is excellent. Atmosphere is fun. The seating by the bar is possibly the most uncomfortable seating.
One of my favorite places in Manhattan! I highly recommend. The homemade pastas are delicious and the service is excellent. Fine selection of Italian speciality wines.
Not inexpensive but the pasta was truly outstanding and the desserts were fabulous as well. Lovely outdoor seating and fantastic attentive service. Perfect for our best friend’s bday dinner. Also they were extremely understanding when two of our party were late bc of subway delays.
Too noisy. Deafening
Food mediocre and they kept pushing to share but portions were minuscule
Steak for $38 was maybe 3 oz.
Beautiful space, uber attentive staff, good pasta. bread and butter were a missed opportunity since they were not on par with the rest of the meal. pasta dish had too much black pepper, overpowering the flavor of the other ingredients. blood orange/campari sorbeto was a perfect way to end the meal. Great wines!
We had a wonderful evening at Café Altro Paradiso. We were there celebrating a Birthday. The carpaccio was one of the best bites I took, along with the Potato Ravioli was wonderful, as well. Overall it was a great experience! Thank you.
Everything about Cafe Altro Paradiso was wonderful
