Great food, fun atmosphere, and excellent service by Mikaela, Kerry, and team. Wether a special occasion or everyday dining you always have a wonderful evening.
My friends love this place. It was our first time and it was our anniversary. I like that the menu was filled food I haven't seen on other menus. It was first time in a long time having a pasta dish with little to no cheese and it was phenomenal. The pasta and sausage was made in house and you can taste the difference. The service was great and the prices were not bad for a good looking place like Alavita. Definitely going back.
The food is always great here and the service is excellent. We’ve been here many times and are never disappointed.
Great ambiance, friendly and knowledgeable staff, excellent food...always!
Our server, Casey, was amazing and very attentive to our needs. Thank you for the wonderful dining experience!
Great food and service. Space is small and crowded with bar and dinner patrons. Vibe is festive but a bit loud bb
Abiance was wonderful. The bartender was great along with his drinks. Our table was ready early with no pressure to sit down earlier then our reservation. The folks ordered the angel hair pasta, unfortunately they were out of it so they had to use a different noodle, which the server had to come back to tell them. When they did get food it was cold so they did correct it by giving it a warm up, also they comped the meal which was very nice. My Dad was happy about that! I ordered the chicken which was suppose to be filled perciutto and cheese. It was a tiny little leg and a thigh with a thinly sliced piece of perciutto no bigger then a 1x1 slice and did not taste any cheese. I asked the server if it was a Cornish game hen. I don't think he appreciated that. Salads were delicious though.
The food and service were great and the should level was low enough that we could carry on a conversation!
We had so much fun here. My favorite was the roasted cauliflower soup, it was so pretty and tasted amazing. The server was great, very on it without being overbearing. Will definitely be going back!!
Dinner with my in-laws as they visited our new home of Boise.
We choose Alavita because: One, it is open in Sunday evenings, as last Sunday was our anniversary. Two, the ambiance is great for a date. Three, the food is always good. And four, the servers are always nice and helpful. In the warmer times of year, we enjoy sitting outside.
It was my wife’s birthday celebration. We’re new to the area and you were highly recommended by one of my doctors. Our evening was all I hope it would be. Thank you for a nice relaxing evening.
We’ll be back!

The food quality has slipped over the last year or so, and the service felt rushed. Our dinner bill was placed on the table while my husband was still eating (they took my plate while he was still eating, too - weird), and we saw a bus/wait person physically waiting to clear a table while the patrons were standing next to it putting on their coats. It used to be our go-to date spot for dinner but we are looking for a new place due to the slip in quality and service.
This restaurant is absolutely incredible! Aside from some basic service improvements this restaurant is a total find!
The food is really REALLY good, pretty seasonal and for the most part priced appropriately. This was our second time in and we are already trying to figure out how to get back in asap. Love this place and can not recommend enough!!
Had high hopes but felt this place was so-so. We were visiting Boise from Portland so we are kinda spoiled with dozens or great dining options at home. We asked a handful of people there in Boise where the foodies go and this place was mentioned a few times. We loved the ambiance but the service was not anything special. Pretty average food as well. We shared artichokes, pork belly and black lobster ravioli. Nothing really shined. I guess it’s all subjective though right?
Always great food and service. Love the ambiance it can just be a little loud if you sit by the bar.
It was my first time here. Even though I had reservations I was seated at the worst table (2ft away from the hostess) even though there were 2 other equally suitable tables open. The food was as uninspired and disconnected as the decor. The Boise market just hasn’t matured enough yet to know the difference. This place wont be here in 10 years unless something changes with their approach.
Fresh pasta with great flavors to go with them. Wine list was exceptional with some pretty hard to find wines. Server was outstanding and owners or managers delivered some of the food. This is an outstanding restaurant all the way around.
Another great dinner......one of my two go to spots in Boise when down from Sun Valley. Pasta dishes are terrific......
Great gnocchi with crab!!!! Delicious!! Had a fun night and manager was very helpful when needed.
Memorable birthday dinner for husband with parents who had not been to Alavita before.
Tina is a wonderful waitress and we always have a great time here !
Beautiful restaurant with great pasta dishes. Alavita is perfect for a date night. The service was outstanding.
Everytime I go to Boise, I eat here. Great food, service, ambiance and value. I am never disappointed.

Lovely evening, food was excellent.
Just wished there had been tomato’s on the menu with the pasta. I don’t eat shellfish or meat so I was somewhat limited on selection. The waiter did explain it was a seasonal thing.
Very good service and food excellent.
Waitress Tina was the best! Caring, cheerful and knowledgeable. Pasta was delicious as always. Our new favorite Boise stop!
Our waiter, Bob, was very helpful in choosing our cocktails and getting our entrees just the way we liked them!
We went to ÀLAVITA for our anniversary. We shared the pork belly appetizer which was PHENOMENAL. WE split the porterhouse steak as well and it was over cooked unfortunately, but had great flavor. We were a little stunned that we ordered one of their newly featured seasonal cocktails and they didn’t have he ingredients to make it. Overall was tasty, but I’m not dying to go back again either.
Amazing ambience, food and service!!!!!!!
Black ravioli !!!!!
Fun place to dine
First off I want to say that the atmosphere was what we were looking for. A little bistro-ish vibe with some character. We enjoyed the atmosphere. We had high hopes because of some of the reviews, and we specifically chose this restaurant because we really wanted Italian. We sat down and were attended to quickly at first. Good start! We ordered, pork belly to start, Roasted Cauliflower soup, Bolognese, and the Black ravioli. I'll keep this short by saying that each item came out lukewarm at best, all items were not seasoned either. The ravioli had a cream sauce and as soon as it hit the table you could see that sauce had congealed and a light film on it...meaning it had sat and cooled. Bland, luke warm food. It was very unfortunate . It seemed there was no expediter, our waiter was seen talking for extended periods of time with the night manager and laughing while our food sat presumably. So in short, based upon that, we will not be returning. Had it been one of the 4 dishes...we would have chalked it up to a misstep. But for the price and reviews this place did not live up to what we expected.
Our table was very small and it was crowded and not much room walking to the restroom or when others passed by table.
Great service and very accommodating for a vegan diet! I loved the food and the atmosphere of this cozy Italian restaurant.
The food was amazing. I had the gnocchi with crab -- so good! The cannoli were nice. I forget the name of the drink I had, foam basil something, but it was excellent and very refreshing for a cocktail. Staff were excellent. Couldn't ask for more.
Tina’s knowledge of the menu and the wines was excellent and her service was superb. We brought out of town visitors to share dinner with us and they were very impressed. We LOVE ALAVITA, it’s creative cuisine and excellent service!!
Great atmosphere...great service ...food was good!
Very awesome the customer service was absolutely amazing the food was great it was so delicious we were full and still cannot stop eating love the atmosphere
Great food, service, and atmosphere. Noise level was extremely loud due to central bar and inebriated party of four that was practically shouting at each other in the booth next to us.
