The food was great and the service was awesome. I love Italian food and anytime a restaurant advertises hand made pasta I've got to try it. I ordered their ravioli but the sauce they used for it didn't appeal to me so asked for it to be substituted with one from another dish on the menu. No problems in changing... More

What an amazing birthday dinner with friends! Almost felt like we were Italy complete with a gondola ride. The food was interesting and amazing. You know when everyone thought they had the best dish it was excellent. Christof became part of the family as he provided vivid descriptions and recommendations. We will be back.

Alto catered our business lunch. It was a really nice setup and the food was delicious. We had the Mediterranean buffet. The only thing missing was wine, but had to work afterward.

Primarily Italian fare but a few southwestern items. Excellent guacamole. Great setting either inside or outside by a fire pit. Really good service. Handled a party of 10 very well. A little pricey because it's located at a resort hotel but a very good experience. Would definitely dine here again.

The staff, the wine and the food are the perfect match. Make a reservation though. We went early as we were going to the Esteban concert and we had the staff to ourselves!

The food wasn't exactly wonderful but it was fine. Not doing backflips, but acceptable. The service with about the same. Nothing to write home about but certainly adequate. no wow factors here but convenient if you are staying at the hotel. Nice outdoor space.

We just went to Alto for our anniversary dinner the other night and had a great experience!! Our waitresses were very attentive and very courteous!! They were so sweet!! I had the scallops (which should be made a permanent addition to the menu in my opinion) and my husband had the steak (he loved it!!!) To top of a great... More

Visited on a Thursday evening. Pros - We had great service from Philip and Shaun, both were very attentive, funny and engaging without being intrusive. The generous "bread basket with sticks" were excellent - served with a dish of balsamic and a dish of olive oil. The filet was fork tender, flavorful and cooked exactly as ordered. The swordfish was... More

Firstly, let me say that the restaurant manager did not charge us for the meal and was very generous in her compensation and handling of these issues. Once mistakes have been made, there is a constructive way to handle things and she was very gracious under pressure. Having said that, the issues with the kitchen and food were so large... More

I tried my hardest to not write a negative review for this restaurant but my efforts in trying to communicate what turned out to be a poor quality meal were ignored.....twice. An e-mail to the manager explaining the poor experience that we had (a party of 7) went ignored. A follow up phone call was answered by the hostess with... More
