A little too much time elapsed between courses. Waiter was wonderful, made great suggestions.
I live in the area and decided to check it out for the first time, my reservation was at 7pm on a Friday night and there were only 4 or 5 tables taken indoors out of possibly 20 or more. We ended up ordering a pizza which was very good and so was the price. But being so empty on a Friday night left me wondering. More people started arriving at 9PM or so mostly teenagers.
most underrated italian in town
we have been coming to alteso for 15 years back when it was Savore.
chef Paolo is awesome. he is a dear friend who treats all customers like family.
the staff has been pretty much the same for the last 15 years. the service is fantastic.
the carfioci, avacado salad is my favorite appetizer.
the lasagne is the best is town
Just a nice enjoyable meal, great choice of music.
Fantastic dinner as always but tonight was special every dish was wonderful, the service and the montepulciano d Abruzzo was good.
Everything was very good. We were there for brunch. The only miss was they have no idea how to make a bloody Mary. Other than that it was excellent.
Great outdoor people watching spot, great music, great service, average food at best. Nothing creative and the quality was just ehhh.
Squid ink pasta was amazing
Altesi Downtown is my go to favorite in Soho. This past week I had occasion to eat there four times, two lunches/two dinners - a record even for me.
The Food as usual was very good. We are specially look forward to the Flatbread baked in the pizza oven with pepper oil. The service was a bit rushed and uneven this time around which is the only slight downside. This is one of our absolute favorites.
Always good,always pleasant, I have never been disappointed by Altesi!
Best Italian food in SOHO. I have been going there for 15 years and it is entirely consistent.
Always great food and service. Thank you Rama and Hymie
Food was outstanding
Mediocre food at best, okay service but not nice and friendly for what you’d expect with the prices. Nice ambience and good outdoor dining set up
Rana our waiter was fantastic
My roommate and I wanted to try a new place for dinner, that’s what we love about restaurant week. Building new places to frequent. But the service was very poor. Several times food was delivered and we didn’t have any silverware. We weren’t offered another bottle of sparkling water when we were empty mid meal. We weren’t offered dessert. They could have easily up-sold us from the RW menu (we did also order an app off the main menu) but basically made us feel like we were less than. They also accidentally dropped off a bottle of wine that we didn’t order. It was meant for the table next to us! Sadly, the food was good, but the service wasn’t good enough for us to return. There’s better options out there.
Wonderful place discovered during Restaurant Week. Will happily return.
Great dinner for our anniversary. Service was excellent.
There was a party going on that was really loud, so we decided to sit outside. We would definitely return to see what the experience would be like inside at the dining room. The food was tasty, the server tried and was capable although was not always attentive. I wish our first experience was not when there was a large private party taking up most of the space.
Servers ignored our table when we tried to get our attention and the food was terrible. It looked like something a college kid would make on a hot plate. Would not recommend.
Amazing food and even better service!
Food is decent, wine list needs serious help.
Service was excellent, and every dish we got was outstanding. The artichoke salad was a standout!
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….
Took the girls out for a nice dinner and was exquisite!
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.
