My wife and I absolutely love Alavita. The food and service is always 5 star and it’s clear that the entire restaurant works together as a cohesive team. The waitresses/waiters always know the unique day to day changes that the chef may make and why he/she makes them and the bartenders may or may not be sommelier because they seem know everything about the wine & cocktails and what will pair best with what meal. Overall we always have an incredible experience and they made this one very special for my wife’s birthday. Highly recommend!
Railli was a great server. Casey was helpful with the wine. We’ll be back.
One of the best dinner's we've had since we moved here from Seattle last summer. From the minute we walked through the door until we left everything was amazing. The service was great.. very knowledgeable server, he didn't smother us and just the right amount of attention. The food was beautiful presented and tasted incredible! We can't wait to go back to try different selections!
The atmosphere is so pretty . Our server was super . Very attentive without being overbearing . The food was good .
Very nice, bartender a little short and not too happy!
Potential for greatness was overshadowed by the burnt lasagnette. Classy atmosphere though.
Loved it, excellent food, service and cocktails
A little too loud, but good
Service was great and the food was delicious! My husband and I had pasta and shared a Caesar salad. The dressing was awesome.
Fantastic birthday dining experience; the service is friendly, efficient, and attentive; and the food is exceptional. Creative menu, thoughtfully prepared and beautifully presented. The pasta is freshly made in-house, and gluten free options are available. Excellent cocktail and wine offerings. We can't wait to go back!
Service and food were outstanding as was wait person. Will be back
We took company to the Alavita for dinner. The server knew the menu and delivered on every level. The food was excellent and kudos to a skilled chef behind the scene. The Alavita has the dining experience in spades. Well done.
We had a great evening. The food was fantastic!
Amazing service and absolutely fantastic food! Can’t wait to go again!!
The ambience was lovely- great service. The food was good the appetizers were very good I would return and take friends as well
Alavita is one of our all time favorite restaurants in all of Boise. The staff is knowledgable, accommodating, welcoming, and provide excellent service from start to finish. The more we come here, the more we fall in love with the food, atmosphere, and incredible dining experience. 10/10 would recommend.
Alavita is a surprising gem in the community that offers great food for what I believe is a very reasonable price with a great ambiance!
Amazing food and atmosphere
We made reservations and were seated very promptly. It was a full house and quite loud. We were seated at a booth behind the bar and it was a little annoying having people pass us with butts or bellies up to the table.
When I made open table reservations I was asked if it was a special occasion. I checked that it was our anniversary. The restaurant did nothing special with this information. It wasn’t acknowledged, there wasn’t a candle on the table etc. Not a big deal, but then why ask?
The food was good, the service was excellent, but the food came out almost too quickly to really enjoy the evening. I understand the restaurant business and the turn and burn, but when I do signal that it is my anniversary that means it is special and I would like to spend some quality time with my husband.
Nice restaurant and good food! Waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable. A little pricey for what was offered but typical of a trendy downtown restaurant.
Wonderful dinner and experience! Our server was very nice and couldnt have done better. Thank you!
The pasta was so delicious! Took my boyfriend here for his birthday and they let us have a scoop of gelato on the house!
I highly recommend this place!
Wow dinner was amazing. This was our first visit and wont be our last. The food was so good and the service was fabulous.
As always, Alavita was amazing! My Fiance and I went here for our anniversary. I highly recommend ordering the fried Risotto for an appetizer. Absolutely delicious! I got the porcini mushroom pasta and my fiancee had the lasagnette. Budino for dessert. All delicious. We both had a couple of the specialty cocktails, which were great. I think the best part of Alavita is the service. They are kind and efficient. Our server made sure to make us feel special and wished us Happy Anniversary a couple of times.
Wonderful food and ambience!
Always enjoy coming here for some fine dining with an Italian twist but with finesse. Great selection of appetizers, salads and entrees, excellent housemade pasta and cozy ambiance.
As always... perfect evening, food, wait staff, attention to details... our server even swapped out Cabernet glasses with Pinot glasses when she noticed we'd brought a Pinot. One suggestion - bring in another bartender... long wait for a drink 15+ minutes while waiting for our table.
We went toAlavita for a Farewell dinner for a friend. I had a standby pasta dish, others had vegetarian and meat dishes. While tasty, it seemed not as good as past meals. I’m hoping this was an off night and will try them again in the near future.
Housemade pasta is delicious!! And great starters served in little jars. Excellent dinner!!
5 year first date-aversary. Great food service and wine. Always a great choice. 10/10.
Waitress and hostess were exceptional, friendly, and engaging.
Excellent food and fantastic service. The restaurant is a cool space with a great atmosphere
One of the best restaurants in Boise!! The food is superb and the location is quite nice!!
The Parmesan gelato was a delicious spread for the charcuterie board. The pastas tasted fresh and had lots of different yummy flavors.
Enjoyed the service and the food. We were a party of 4. Everyone enjoyed everything that was ordered. I look forward to trying the rest of the menu.
Average - too much dairy. Not enough vegetables. Great service from our waitress.
Another excellent experience. We had a 8:45 reservation. Sometimes you can feel rushed if the server/kitchen is trying to get out of there. Not the case. In fact, we were encouraged to take the time we need.
Same female server we had last time and she was excellent again. Great menu knowledge, enthusiasm and grace. Kitchen crushed it with the dinner. Thanks again, Alavita!
Wagyu was more rare than I would like for med rare but the portions were so small I didnt mind. Pretty good deal for 30$ would have liked more meat considering this cut is cheaper but then again it is wagyu. Would come back! Fish was on point great flavor and texture.
Had lasagna and it was not made with regular noodles instead it had way too much cheese, white sauce and like a cracker top. The whole thing was a soggy mess. Husband had a $45 ribeye of which was so much fat that it was hard to cut it all out. Plus it was on a bed of puréed potatoes that resembled baby food. Not great!
