We loved the anchovy chrostini. The 40 ounce tomahawk steak was perfection. We loved the open feel of the room, and the food was amazing. I can’t recall our servers name but he did a great job. Thanks

I love Altro Paradiso..the food is exquisite and they have a wonderful wine selection. And the Saraghina bread with the ricotta/olive oil they serve is amazing. For the most part, I've had great service. Except for the last time....waiter was not the nicest. But everyone is allowed to have a bad day. Yes, go to Altro Paradiso! You will love it.

Sat outside. Wonderful afternoon. Great service. Detailed, helpful explanations of the menu resulted in excellent choice for the three of us. Scrumptious pasta and tart pleasing salads. Dessert, including the cows milk cheese topped of a sunny early evening meal.

Cafe Altro Paradiso was nice, but pricy for the value in my opinion. The restaurant is beautiful, ambiance is nice, appetizers were interesting, but I found the pastas bland. Our waitress left halfway through the night and didn't tell us she was leaving or someone would be taking over. It took the new server about 20 min or so to finally come over, at which point our water glasses and cocktails had been empty for a while. I'm not picky when it comes to service, and understand shifts change, but the restaurant wasn't too crowded and it was an excessive amount of time that no one came by to check on us. Overall the experience was just alright.

This place is very expensive for just ok food. Fennel salad was pretty much a pile of way too much fennel and a few sliced olives. One dimensional. Mushroom lasagne was deconstructed, which was fine, but pretty unexciting. Two glasses of wine, three salads and two pastas were $200. A lot for average food. On the positive side, our waiter was excellent.

I thought it was fine. No bread was offered. I had the pasta cacio e Pepe, and it was fine. The sauce with the Arancini was red pepper. Not going back with so many better choices

It wasn't too crowded that night. We sat in a booth and ordered the burrata, grilled octopus with hummus, corn, and red bell pepper, malfatti with mushrooms and parmesan cheese, and cacio e pepe with a tubular pasta. I would have preferred a more tender traditional spaghetti pasta with a creamier sauce. Restaurant has a nice open feel with lots of oak wood in the furnishings.

Not a great experience - all servers and Sommelier had attitude and unfriendly ,including hostess . I felt the prices were too high for amount of food served and choices very limiting
Love Estella but this misses the mark sadly

I was delighted. It was a meal when all the aspects of fine dining came together. The offering of a few slices of dark bread with olive oil and crescent of ricotta was perfect. My friend had the shaved fennel and I had the burrata as appetizers, simple with delightful twists in perfect portions. We each had the steak with blue cheese which was cooked to our specifications without a grimace. The perfect amount of cheese to match each bite. Completed our meal with chocolate walnut tart and an americano coffee. Truly the perfecting factor was our waiter and support service.

A bustling Saturday night in prime time lead to stressed staff and a slow kitchen. Having dined here before and always been pleased, this time was a disappointment because of our food. Although the octopus appetizer was good (and the kitchen divided it: always a plus), both our main courses left a lot to be desired. We'll go again, but not any time soon.

Apps were great esp. burrata and arancini tho octopus nothing special. Pastas excellent- skip the mains- $130. -For snapper? Yes really, we fools ordered it, and absolutely not worth it! (Ditto the pork.). Stick to small plates and wine and you’ll be satisfied.
