Nice But Loud

Nice little spot. Food very different. Pizettes (their name, not mine) better than average flatbreads with excellent mixture of toppings and cheese. Service was a little slow if you choose to sit down at a table. Bar service is much quicker. Small outside seating is a nice touch on a summer... read more

Great place to enjoy a drink and chat. Great food, great prices and the martinis are amazing. Cozy atmosphere with no pressure to leave even after you have finished your meal.

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.
