The food was outstanding. We had a lot of different dishes from appetizers, salads, main and deserts. Every one of our choices were perfect. Highly recommended.
Excellent food and service! Loved it!
The food was excellent, it felt safe dining inside with social distancing and the service was quite good.
Got to sit outside and it was lovely. Meal wine and appetizers were very good
We enjoyed ourselves. The menu is limited but happy with what we ate.
We went with our 3 year old and they were great! Even helped keep him entertained before our dinner arrived.
Great food, quality service
Our waitperson was perhaps the best that we have encountered in Boise. Food was very good and there appeared to be a good focus on safety, masks and distancing.
It is truly a pleasure to dine here. Everything is done to perfection!
Ambiance was decent and the service was pretty good. The food (with the exception of the desserts and grilled artichokes) was just OK. They were operating on a truncated menu so who knows. Three of us had pasta dishes and they just weren't that flavorful and two of noodles were tough - the black ravioli and the trottole.
The affogato and the Vanilla Budino were great! Artichoke hearts, very tasty.
The halibut was also good.
I would go there for drinks and desserts but not sure I would do dinner.
Maybe one more try...
Fantastic meal with perfect service! All staff were wearing masks; tables were properly distanced and front windows were open for good air circulation. It was quite nice to get out and enjoy a nice meal in safe conditions (well, safe as we can get right now). Highly recommend!
Food was incredible, great service and great ambiance!
Service was terrific, and food delicious. Great night out.
When our children visiting from Portland come to Boise, we almost always have dinner at Alavita. Despite 97 degree temperatures, because of COVID we sat outside, which was still fairly comfortable. When the food was served, the pesky flies descended. Otherwise, the food was delicious and the service was great.
Great atmosphere and a warm welcome by all the staff and server friends!
We felt very safe and protected from Covid-19.
The food was delicious — as always!
Celebrated my daughters 16th birthday here. She hand picked Alavita. We had the most lovely evening. Service was dynamite, ambiance wonderful, and the food was delicious.
Excellent service throughout. COVID precautions were solid. The black ravioli is a very unique dish, and is excellent.
Great service !
We had a AMAZING time at Alavita! The staff was exceptional - prompt, friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and pairings, and not overly intrusive (a very good thing!). The food was superb with great options including some unexpected treasures (parmesan mousse? - An absolute must to try!). With all of the locally-sourced menu items and new spins on Italian classics, Alavita has become one of our new favorites in Downtown Boise.
Love the food! The service is always impressive!
All three of us ordered the mushroom raviolis --- yummmm, but they were served almost cold..... would sure have enjoyed more if they had been warmer. Also of interest, we ordered drinks... each of us had one, but were never asked if we wanted another !? Now,
that is strange, indeed !!
We will be going back in the next few days. Their food is amazing - especially their Tagliatelle. Also kuddos for the extraordinary grilled Halibut with a pea puree sauce. My husband said it was by far the best he's had (and he orders it often.) That says a lot about just how good it is.
An excellent menu with great cocktail, appetizer and entree choices, complimented by a broad wine list. The staff are engaging and knowledgeable. A completely satisfying dining experience!
Great food and a great atmosphere. Overall a good experience.
Food was ok, but nothing stellar. VERY slow.
Superb as always. Even in the Covid era, an oasis. Incredible food and service. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.
Wow...what a complete treat. From the amazing Malbec wine, delicious salad and pasta to the cannolis it was perfect! This is the place to go, ambiance, service everything was top notch. Shayna was our waitress, what a complete professional!
Always a great experience from the moment you walk in. The food is consistently good and the staff superb. We have dairy and gluten food allergies in the family and the staff always goes out of their way to not only accompanied us but also make us comfortable knowing that they’re looking out for us.
We had a perfect meal, excellent service and drinks! One of my favorite places to eat in Boise!
Great place and tasty food. Service was impeccable.
Awesome, waiter gave great recommendations.
Alavita always feels like a special occasion. The creativity, effort and talent shines through in their service and tasty menu dishes. We truly enjoy this little downtown gem. Full Flavor Dinning!
Alavita served top quality Italian dishes, individually prepared and with attention to detail. The service was efficient and attentive. Pricing was moderate and a good value n view of the quality of the food.
Food is amazing. Every items I ordered all tasted very good.
The food was amazing! Highly recommend the pan seared halibut! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff who took their time making sure all of our questions were answered regarding menu items. Absolutely love that they try their best to use locally sourced produce, meats and other ingredients.
We will returning again soon to try another dish.
The owner even stopped in at our table to make sure our dining experience was going well.
Delicious meatballs for appetizers. Black Ravioli with lobster was amazing. Eisenhower cocktail was extra special. Would definitely recommend for a special night out. One of our favorites in Boise.
Service was spot on and the food was homemade and fresh. Good wine list and desserts.
Went here on a Saturday night. Our server was great- very nice, attentive and gave great recommendations!
We had the artichokes which were very good- much better than your average grilled artichoke and the sauce was very tasty. We also had the burrata. We enjoyed the cheese but the tomato mixture underneath was too sweet.
All of our pastas were quite good- tasted very fresh, great flavorful sauces and good portion sizes.
The dessert selection was just okay. We have the budino which was good but not great. The restaurant was pretty and had a nice atmosphere.
The food was really great...loved the ravioli and my husband enjoyed his risotto. We also appreciated being able to bring our own wine ($10 corkage fee). Highly recommend!!
