Wow, quite the delightful restaurant. Meticulously clean, comfortable, a sunny interior patio off the street.
The chocolate is a focus with deserts, designer bars, truffles in many flavors for tasting. They are starting a fabulous line of chocolate drinks too.
Great breads to go.

Stopped in for a taste of chocolate. We ended up staying for what turned out to be a fantastically delicious trout dinner with vegetables fresh from there own farm. Service staff was wonderful and made us feel not just welcome but like invited special guests. Desserts were wonderful and we all tried some chocolates before deciding on our choice of take home treats..

Highly reccomended

I love Altisimo's soups, especially the tomato basil, onion and potato soups. They are so flavorful and the onion and potato soups are packed with their respect veggies. My wife and I make those our dinner when we're looking for something on the lighter side.

The baked pasta was lovely with a hint of cacao. Large portion, easily could take half home for another meal. Nice atmosphere. Staff are attentive. Chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream - divine! Delicious chocolates, bit out of our price range.

This company makes world class chocolate products that are marketed through this bistro. The restaurant's menu features a nice selection of dishes for breakfast and lunch. There were four of us for lunch on the enclosed courtyard. Two of us chose the French onion soup which they both considered was too thick and pasty. I found the turkey vegetable noodle soup to be quite good. My wife and I enjoyed our turkey salad with walnuts sandwiches. Our friend reported that the BLT sandwich was very good. In general the food and service was excellent. However, there were few other patrons despite the fact that this was the peak of the lunch hour rush - probably because the prices are very high when compared to other restaurants in the area.
