We went 3 times to Altrove and loved it everytime. No wonder there is a line to get in every night. But grab a beer from a nearby cafe and the waiting is over before you know it. We ordered pizza's aswell as pasta. The taste is good. I would compare it to decent midrange pizzeria's in Italy. The prices... More

While dining in various restaurants throughout the Philippines, I have noticed (as a waiter myself) that service is a lot different then in North America/Central America and Europe... and by different I mean poor. And at no place was that more true then at Altrove. Thats not to say the staff aren't friendly, they are... really everyone in the Philippines... More

Go here after a long day in the sun. Sit back and enjoy the most amazing pizza. I'm from Chicago and am picky about my pizza, but this was really the best. Hungarian sausage with all sorts of deliciousness straight from the brick oven. It was decently priced for El Nido. We were lucky and didn't have to wait for... More

My wife and I found out about this place when we asked our tricycle driver to take us to a pizza place in El Nido. Man what an amazing experience! There was no line when we arrived, which was quite lucky judging from other online reviews. The dining area is on the 2nd floor, and we were asked to remove... More

Sometimes you just want a pizza. Delicious hand made pizza (you can watch the young filipino kids making the pizza in front of the brick oven) Definitely try the iced tea with calamansi its superb. very romantic loft style dining area. food was promptly brought. always a long line waiting outside but worth the wait. perfect chewy/crispy crust balance :)...

Wanted to try because, hey why not. It's ranked the 2nd in TripAdvisor. This could not be bad. So it's not bad. It's not that excellent either. It was just okay. Ordered an appetizer, pizza and pasta. Everything tasted bland. Their iced tea, my boyfriend liked but for me, it tasted like those air/car fresheners and for 50php a glass?... More

In general, we don't go to Italian restaurants abroad: for many reason, often because of the difference in the ingredients, we have often been deceived. This restaurant is one of the few exception: while you are waiting in the queue (often a long queue!) you can see how the pizza is done, and when you are finally seated you can... More

One of the real Italian restaurants I've been and I can say I really loved the food. The serving is just right for the price and served with energetic and smiling staff. So nice that they combined a touch of filipino there like the place/house with wooden floors and you need to remove your shoes/slippers before going in. Reminds me... More
