Good food, service and wine.
We had a wonderful dinner and our waiters were fabulous! Their menu recommendations were right on. We had such a fun night. Thank you!
Really innovative Italian menu. Monterrey sardines for a starter. Dishes and ingredients that were new to me. Delicious Italian wines from producers that were new to me too. I loved it. A big reason I dine out is to have something different. This menu hit the bill. Perfectly. Great service and staff. Energetic feel.
The food is inspired, the flavors interesting, complex and robust. The pasta is not to be missed. and the little fried olives bursts of heaven.
Epic wine list and amazing food
Hand made pasta
Another great meal at Altovino. The salad and pasta were fantastic
Great service throughout. Food was exceptional and very generous portions. Beautiful design...modern yet classically tasteful.
Best Italian in Nob Hill. Incredible value for truly authentic cuisine! Lovely staff who will make you feel so welcome to be there!
Awesome food, great service, excellent suggestions
My favorite restaurant in San Francisco. By all means go to this great place. Excellent service, great food and beautiful ambiance in this classic SF place.
Great neighborhood gem! Terrific service and tasty dished fit for foodies.
Altovino is a neighborhood gem. It never disappoints. We have taken friends, business people, and recommended it to neighbors. Everyone loves it. The menu changes seasonally and is always inspired. Pastas are delicious, well everything is! Try the fish baked in salt crust. It is heaven. The wines are fairly priced with a nice selection.
Claudio, the owner, greets everyone with a warm smile.
This is a favorite of ours in SF
The service and ambiance were wonderful. My husband and I went for dinner while on vacation. I especially enjoyed the strawberry spritz and vanilla gelato.
We were early fans of Ino Vino, and were thrilled to see the evolution to Alto Vino, an elevation of experience in every way. Although the food and ambiance are top of the line, the ambiance remains relaxed and welcoming, quite a feat! Til the next time, we’ll be thinking of the singular meal and great time we had. The bass and hanger steak were superb, preceded by a smoked salmon and roe starter to die for, and of course never miss the stuffed fried olives to start!
Love this place. So good!!! The ambiance and food are delightful.
Put off by the service but loved the food. Would only go back to sit at bar and avoid the service issue.
Great food and service! Got the stuffed olives and I don’t even like olives but they were delish. Also ordered the fruit salad, Ragu, and some delicious ravioli. All was amazing. Had a wonderful waiter who gave great selection on the wine list. We even stayed half an hour after closing and he was so kind about it even when we tried to rush. Loved our experience here!
The neighborhood restaurant was delightful. The food was creative and delicious. We felt welcomed and very happy to be there. The staff is amazing.
Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful food, service and ambiance in this comfortable restaurant.
We were so impressed. The service, wine list, wine suggestion and food was so good. Hoping to get back to Nob Hill for dinner again soon!
I probably shouldn’t say anything because this is s neighbored gem that we love and go to often - we don’t want the reservation to become impossible! The good is consistently outstanding. They change the menu with the seasons so there is always at least one thing new when we go, if not the whole menu. The staff are really nice and gracious, not just because they know us. I can’t recommend Altovino strongly enough.
The food was amazing and it was such a magical evening
Great neighborhood spot, with delicious and different pastas. Great ambiance, very cozy.
Incredible service. Sat outside, so lovely.
The food just keeps getting better at Altovino. Lucky me, I can walk there -- but it's worth a drive across town too.
Fabulous dining experience
Superb! Amazing. Will 100% go there again.
Everything was excellent like I was in Italy
This is a romantic restaurant in ambient setting. The whole experience, from getting seated to dessert, was wonderful. The only minor negative was that it was challenging to find a substitute for grains.
Food was great, atmosphere was awesome
Love this restaurant! Authentic Italian cuisine, beautiful atmosphere and great service. I keep coming back. Grazie!
The food was amazing and so was the service. We had overall an great time celebrating my man’s birthday. Grazie mille!
Unfortunately they sat us at a table right next to the bathrooms and the entry to the kitchen. It ruined what would otherwise it would’ve been a decent dinner
We enjoyed outstanding service, wine list, appetizers, pasta, and espresso. What an incredible meal. Thank you, Altovino!
This is the 5th time I've had the pleasure of dining at Altovino and am continually pleased with the spot on service, the beautifully prepared food and the cozy atmosphere.
We had been traveling and we were looking for a quiet, high quality meal in a cozy setting and Altovino hit that (and more) on all cylinders! The staff were super helpful, the wine list was great and the food simply killed. Couldn't have scripted the night any better. No wonder the locals were all pouring in!
Fantastic all round dining experience.
A great neighborhood find. The food is better than many of the well known Italian restaurants downtown or in North Beach.
Food and wine delicious as was the service
