Amazing food and even better service!
Food is decent, wine list needs serious help.
Great food and service! I didn’t love the aperol spritz. Maybe they used sprite?? Other than that all good!
All dishes were amazing! We had the:
- Indiavia e Pera Salad
- Fettucini (w/ braised duck) ***
The branzino and the braised duck was the best of them all! But tbh everything was delicious! Just booked another table for Friday night.
pizza was bland, artichoke salad no taste, only truffle mushroom ravioli was great. i don’t mind paying for wine, but when the glass is same price or more than the bottle i’m done….
Excellent food for reasonable prices, outstanding service, a wide array of quality wines, and a terrific location on a sleepy corner in the heart of Soho. I've been coming here for years and I've never been disappointed.
Went to Altesi Downtown because we love Altesi on UES, but it was a completely different experience. While we did have a lovely outdoors table for 10, the service was extremely slow and poor, even waiting 30+min for drinks, not to mention the food, which, when it eventually arrived was pretty average. Will be sticking to the UES location, which is impeccable!
Everything was delicious!
Loud, food and service mediocre
Young folks, mostly women, were standing on the tables dancing to unusually loud music. Maitre'd said it was a college graduation party and apparently others joined in. We were with friends who don't table dance so we were at a disadvantage. Very nice of the restaurant to let the ladies control the music selection and volume, but it was a bit raucous for dinner with friends. But the food was good. Not rushing back.
The restaurant was empty so the waiters decided to noisily polish and bang all the silverware! Requests to ask them to stop were ignored making for a very unpleasant meal. We rushed and headed out as quickly as we could!
We have been coming to Altesi (formerly Savore) for many years. It is absolutely our “go to” restaurant. Always a wonderful experience. Delicious food, lovely staff and reasonably priced. Highly recommend!
It was a super nice and delicious lunch - everything perfect.
really great outdoor set up and staff. did great with our large group.
The food, value and service were great. The indoor seating was spaced out and quiet. They followed all the Covid protocols such as temperature check, contact info and hand sanitizing. The restaurant felt clean.
Fantastic Italian food; great menu; wonderful choices and excellent service. Love the location in between Soho and The Village.
The ambiance was really nice and they were playing old Italian music which was nice. The food was just okay though. Nothing impressive, not worthy of going back for.
excellent food. nice and attentive people working there. obviously quiet in side due to pandemic. but very nice. bravo to them.
Visited for Valentine's day. Place was honestly phenomenal. Food was great, Wine was very good. Will definitely be back.
This restaurant during covid night was packed to capacity- 100%. We thought it was only allowed to 25%.
I had requested two high chairs on my reservation- when I got to the restaurant they said they only have one high chair in the restaurant. I should have been informed of this.
We asked for water- didn’t get served until we asked for it a third time - which was almost to the end of dinner. My daughter asked for bread. Again- we had to ask three times and it came after we already had finished our entree. Food was mediocre. Terrible experience overall.
Consistently great food and good service/ outdoor space is well done. A neighborhood favorite.
Disappointing. Didn't completely change the table clothes (which makes no sense in COVID times). Very loud music (and odd 1980/90s choices given the Italian nature of the restaurant). Food just par.
I loved my meal. The focaccia bread is a must have!
Amazing service, cozy and great food, a really good option for Italian food in Soho!
Great guality, fresh food!
Very helpful service and low noise level indoor. Yummy pasta and will definitely go back!
Really bad service despite the restaurant was empty
Consistantly good service and excellent food. It's as authentic as it gets!
Terrific, as always. Excellent appetizers, delicious pasta dishes and yummy tiramisu, along with a nice Barolo wine. Top notch service. Don't miss it!!
Love This Place....Food is amazing
Staff is friendly
Sat outside. Delicious food. Sliced artichoke and parmesan delicious as was the mushroom ravioli. Super tiramisu. Go and enjoy!
we keep going back. Food,service is all excellent
You will not be disappointed
Perhaps cut backs lost
Them a chef? Got the special lobster bisque soup which had lobster shell pieces in it was not smoothly puréed and over salty. Told
The waiter I had lobster shell in my soup the pieces on the side of my bowl visible and he just said lobster bisque and took it away. Ordered pizza that came slightly undercooked dough light brown and falls apart
bc I could tell it wasn’t very clean to serve reusable menus that are visibly dirty with sticky food spots during a pandemic and not offering hand sanitizer is a bit scary probably won’t return heard it was one of
The best places in the city but it’s not today
Altesi Downtown is one of our favorite restaurants in all of Manhattan. We have been coming here for years way back to when it was callee Savore. The service is always exceptional and friendly. The food is fabulous and I have to comment on what an outstanding job the entire staff has done during these very trying times. Just a stupendous job! Highly recommend!!
Good drinks & food. Very fine service
recommended for a nice leisurely lunch or dinner
will go back
Realizing like most NYC restaurants they are struggling. It has been one of my favorites for nearly 20 years. Had 3 bloody Mary’s there were 3 diners. They were horrible and left unfinished. The Altesi antipasto was pieces of lobster and asparagus stems. I’ll let them get up and running before I bail on them
We've never been disappointed here. We weren't this time either...
We had a lovely meal. Dinner with my parents while visiting from away. We searched best Italian food in soho and this is what we found. Pasta was fantastic. Service was top notch with bread and drinks on the table in less than 5 mins. Staff was so sweet! We got tiramisu to share for desert and it’s the best I’ve ever had. To top it off, a man came to check how our dinner was and had a nice chat with us, turns out he is the owner. Excellent service, amazing food!
Freshly baked focaccia with the white bean spread is delicious! We also enjoyed the fresh artichoke salad with parmigiano and avocado. And of course, the fresh pasta with chanterelle mushrooms is my absolute favorite! Make sure you leave space for tiramisu - it’s the best in NYC!!! The staff is lovely and the ambiance is nice, too!
This is our favorite Italian eclectic restaurant downtown/Soho area. It is unpretentious- excellent dishes- love the Judeo-Roman- style artichoke dish starter; the endive pear and Gorgonzola salad; Branzino; and mushroom pasta.
Heimi our server was charming and attentive. The background music was lovely and for the atmosphere.
We will always return!
