“Pricey. Antipasti and Primo delicious. Secondi avg.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

The first two courses were excellent. The wine list very pricey. However, even one of the cheaper bottles was a great choice.
The main course was a bit of a disappointment. The braised veal was ok. But not much different from what you can cook by yourself.
Staff was friendly. Nevertheless, if you look too touristy (and we certainly did), you won't get the little gift that all the locals get at the end of the dinner. Which is a pitty ... with a little more, you could very well justify the juicy prices!

“Very dissapointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

I had very high expectation to this visit with my vife where we should try The Godfather menu.

All in all food was very average and I really dont want to spend more time on this.

The waiter was all over the place and very confused. Tried to give us food we didnt order because he misinformed the kitchen about our order - twice.

All in all very very dissapointing. Probably the worst meal in CPH for years.

L'Altro back on the horse and get your stuff sorted out.

“Great service nice environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

The experience in trying out this restaurant was during Copenhagen dining week. The restaurant was full but the service was very good. The homemade bread was great and the meal like homecooked. I enjoyed mostly the appetizer with codfish, and the vegetarian lasagna was very good too. The main course was not as good, very little amount and very heavy in taste, I enjoyed the polenta but not much the meat... Anyways, the little meat there was was not really enough for two if we did enjoy. In General was a good experience and we might come back to try other dishes.

“One of the best Italian restaurants in Copenhagen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at L'Altro the other day.
The menu mainly asks if you are hungry or not.
There are two choices: A menu of 4 or 5 courses. And there are 4 wine-menu's of different quality.
We took the 5-course menu with the cheapest wine menu.
I think we got 7 or 8 courses included small appetizers in between. The courses were suitable in size and all of them very delicious. The wine was good, but the most impressing experience was the superb service.
You REALLY feel welcome at L'Altro.
We will surely be back.

“Classical italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We got a three course menu with fish (baccala) as antipasto, lasagne as pasta and deer with mushrooms as the main course. The meal was good value for money. We had a bottle of Assisi Rosso from Umbria. It worked well with all three courses and it was also good value for money. The website of the restaurant doesn't show a wine card, but different not specified wine menus. The price of the wine menu for the three course menu that evening seemed rather high.
