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!
This was the perfect location for a friend's birthday party. They handled the large number of guests seamlessly and the food was absolutely delicious!
I was celebrating my birthday and had a great time. The food was delicious and the ambience was unbelievable. Great playlist and clientele (between 25-35). Highly recommend for a date night
Avoid not very good
food was amazing and the service was excellent. will definitely o back
Nice. Fancy pizzeria.
I take my granddaughter who is just 2 there for dinner often. She loves their pasta and I love everything on the menu. Staff couldn’t be nicer!❤️
Got together with friends for dinner. Ordered from the Restaurant Week Menu which had a good variety of choices. Everything was delicious and well portioned. We'll be going back for sure.
We enjoyed a wonderful menu as part of Restaurant Week. The food was delicious.
Lovely service , delicious food .
TERRIBLE service; terrible ambience; terrible noise level
Went to Altesi as part of restaurant week and had a great meal. Chose the meatballs, the pappardelle and the creme brûlée. Everything was exceptional and the service was super accommodating. I would definitely return!
Great restaurant!!! super good food and the ambiance was great! however the waiter did mess up my order when i clearly said out the meal that i had wanted and too almost 30 minutes out of our time waiting for the right meal! But when i got the meal it was amazing!!
There was a children’s party in the restaurant during brunch. It was noisy and chaotic. If the restaurant review/description had warned me it was ‘child friendly,’ I would have made a reservation somewhere else.
A really superior dining experience! We dine a lot in Soho & never went to Altesi before, not sure why, maybe it seems too formal from the outside? The other night, it was the only Italian option nearby at the hour we wanted to eat, so we went. We all had fish dishes & they, plus the various sides & garnishes, were extraordinary! Beautifully seasoned, a wonderful medley of flavors and the fishes were all grilled to a nice crisp on the outside and still moist & tender inside. The service was attentive & competent, not at all intrusive. The incongruous Spanish music being played was oddly festive & loud for some reason.
I've been a semi-regular here for 15 years and it is always a great experience. Food in consistently excellent. Service while always very good, was severely put to the test the first Friday of Restaurant Week. The place was jammed and they were understaffed but still everything went smoothly -- the true test of service.
Delicious homemade pasta! My 2 year old granddaughters restaurant of choice ❤️❤️❤️
Food and service was excellent.
very nice and accommodating staff! food was good. prices were also reasonable
I have been a regular at Altesi Downtown for the last 3 years - typically with a large party - and the staff there always delivers. Excellent food and service.
We enjoyed a perfectly prepared and delicious Thanksgiving meal at this excellent downtown Italian venue. The service, as usual, was exemplary.
We were greeted warmly at the door and good service continued throughput the meal. The menu is very inventive and also includes pizza which we saw on a nearby table. It looked thin,crispy and delicious. We ate from the regular menu and I had a delicious mixed grill of fish which was fresh and not over cooked. The price seemed fair too. All in all, a good evening.
Great place with a wonderful location. Fun to sit in the front when the windows are open and you can watch the hustle and bustle down spring street
Food was delicious, service was great but it was TOO LOUD and the choice of music was inappropriate for fine dining - techno that was super fast and super loud. Other than that it’s a good value for the neighborhood.
I loved it except for the noise level, but no worse than most NY restaurants
Terrible food, it’s a waste of prime real estate in a neighborhood with great food. Hardly would call it Italian, the pasta was far from hand made, not cooked well. When asked for olive for dipping bread, they gave us the olive oil you cook with - terribly smelly and definitely not appropriate to serve with bread. Never going back
Great food crap service
We have here numerous times before both for lunch and dinner. The food is always very delicious and well prepared. My husband had the pasta special and I had the pork chop special which came sliced off the bone. Both dishes were great. We then had the tiramisu which we've had before and it didn't disappoint us. All in all , we really like this restaurant and would recommend it to lovers of good Italian dishes.
My family and I have been going to Altesi for many years. We enjoy the ambiance, the food and especially entire staff. Paulo and his team are very accommodating!
We have had numerous family parties there as well which have been a big hit. The summer outdoor seating is picturesque with a European feel.
Spending time with friends
Pretty much every Italian restaurant in SoHo is nicer
Delicious food, great service and reasonable pricing. Worth a return trip!
Always a great experience with friendly service and very tasty food and wine. This is a favorite spot when we’re in town.
One of our favorite Sunday spots for lunch.
My lobster salad was sublime - as it always is. My dining partner's salmon entree was overcooked and, for some reason its top was coated heavily with black pepper, which made him choke. He finally scraped off the top lawyer of the fish & ate the rest of it.
Having eaten at Altesi Downtown many many times & also taken many people there, this was the first time someone's meal was less than superb.
Fantastic food and service
Excellent food - service - outdoor dinning.
Not great food; calamari was dreadful and we returned it. Touristy and expensive mediocre food do not make me want to return soon.
