We opened on Valentine’s Day in 1953 in downtown Clinton, NY, and we’ve been sharing our love of good food and drink as a community gathering place ever since. John and Laura Alteri opened the doors and managed the restaurant until John’s death in 1960. We rebuilt after a fire in 1963, and the tradition was carried on by John’s son and daughter-in-law, Fernando “Feet” and Beverly, until 1998. Today, third-generation owner Fran Alteri manages his family’s warm, home-styled restaurant and seasoned bar, bringing people together with classic food, beer, wine and spirits. Share a table with your friends or family for casual dining and try our famous pizza, pasta, sandwiches, soup and more, or just find a stool at the bar and we can chat over one of our many craft beers.

I have been there many times with a large group (an entire Men’s basketball team). The food is excellent and the staff and service even better. I highly recommend Alteris!

The food, service and general atmosphere were all great as usual. Regardless of being busy we were brought to our table immediately and our server was very friendly and right there when we needed anything. Long time family owned restaurant that is one of the cornerstones of Clinton.

We love Alteri’s! It’s a must do when we visit from Texas. Everything is delicious and the family who runs it is wonderful. Everyone should try Alteri’s when they visit the area.

Everything was amazing. I have looked forward to coming back to Alteri’s for such a long time, and it did not disappoint. Food, service, vibe, always perfect. Thank you for making my grandfather’s trip up from Florida a total hit. He dreams about your covered sausage dinner.

My parents began taking me to Alteri's in the '60s. It's still one of my favorite places to dine. THE best pizza. Delicious homemade rustic Italian cuisine. Excellent fish fry on Friday. The Alteri family and their staff are exceptional people. You can't go wrong dining at Alteri's.
