Wonderful atmosphere in an intimate setting. Their bread (you know the stuff some restaurants throw down on your table to keep you occupied while waiting for your meal?) was a flavorful garlic bread with just the right kind of texture. The entrees we had were excellent. But the real charm of this place was the service. Our waiter was exactly... More

This is a first for my husband and I. So glad we choose Altruda's!!!! The salad and garlic bread were both amazing. The shrimp fettuccine was fabulous and a huge bowl. Plenty to take home for 2nds. My husband got the lasagna and it was perfect . We will definitely be back.

We absolutely loved this place! The food was great and fresh made to order. This is not a franchise or chain Italian joint. This is authentic Italian. The ambience is so cute. The tables are kind of set up in a gazebo like setting with vines of grapes draped over. My daughter commented that she felt like we were sitting... More

Authentic European ambient restaurant. Staff was friendly and food was good. Love the salad and garlic bread. I ordered Eggplant Nicole and my hubby ordered Scaloppine al Limone. My hubby doesn't like eggplant but he liked my food. :) Scaloppine was a bit more lemony but it was also good. Only down side is that It's a bit pricy so... More

The food was very good. I do have to say it had nice flavor. My waitress was...well...slow. The owner seemed to have a bit of a chip on his shoulder. I made a tiny not even complaint really? And he yelled an excuse over my shoulder instead of walking over to me at my table. My coffee drink took so... More

Atmosphere, service and food was very good. Menu has variety and the food is prepared authentically. The snapper was excellent and the garlic rolls are to die for, except for the calories.

We've been visiting this wonderful establishment for over 23 years - always on our anniversary. Today, we had an unexpected night at home without the children, so we picked up take-out. Couldn't have made a better choice - Altruda's is always delicious!

First time visiting on recommendation of someone...I should have driven an hour to Crossville and went to Forte's for better food at a much better price. Service was good but we had to constantly wait for our table to be cleared, to ask for our bill...etc.. Once was enough. The bread plate of food I received for a whooping 21.00... More
