Small and sophisticated

If your looking for good food, especially local specials accompanied but great mixed drinks this is your place. The flatbreads are always fantastic and salads hit the spot. Seating can be limited but it is worth it.

Had a Moonraker Matini. And a meal with excellent potatoes, asparagus, and shish kebab. $13 for the meal. $8 for the chocolate martini. Their specialty seems to be the sirloin strip with gorgonzola. I got there bu 8pm and Th e steaks were sold out.

We were in Alton to go on a ghost tour (don't judge us!), wanted something to eat first, so came here not knowing what to expect. It turned out to be fabulous - 5 of us had varied foods and we all thought them spectacular. Well worth the visit, and much better than the tour - we are looking forward... More

Three couples decided to go to Bossanova's for Alton Restaurant Wee. The good was delicious, the martini's were amazing and the service was great. Be sure and stop in and at least have a martini. You won't be sorry.

Went here for a ladies night and the food was phenomenal, as were the drinks. It's a small restaurant/bar and when we walked in there was a musky odor and it was dark, I was a little skeptical but they blew me away. Everything was good and I can attest to that because we all just ooed and awwed as... More

I visited this place just for drinks with a couple of friends and we had a great time. The service was very good although they were very busy. I had a traditional style gin martini and it was one of the best I've ever had.
