My husband and I were there for our wedding anniversary* and had the greatest time. The ambience of the restaurant is perfect for a romantic dinner but more than that it is the delicious food and the personal attention by chef Adhikari that makes Alto-Vino the best Italian restaurant in Bangalore. We had the quinoa salad, the potato gnocchi and the eggplant parmesan - all very tasty and authentic. The dessert, tiramisu, topped the charts.The server Bikash churned out some lovely drinks from the bar. We highly recommend this restaurant.

From last 7 years I have been in many places .But this is one of the best place to visit for Italian food , Service in the restaurant was good . Best part was chef is taking the feedback. After finishing our main course I could remember chef Dola came to our table to ask us about our food.well thank you chef for such a amazing food. as we were looking for dessert then chef dola suggested us special tiramisu and one he made with nitrogen. He was looking like a magician. The taste of tiramisu was amazing. Once again thank you chef.we ll come back soon.

Went here for informal dinner with team members.
The Menu offered limited options for Vegetarians but the food was excellenet (I went for veg Lasagne), my colleagues who had non-veg also appreciated the food.
The Chef visited the table to wish us :)
Deserts were also great..

Overall a nice place to visit if you are craving for Italian food and Wine.

There is a lot more to Italy than pizza, pasta, spaghetti, risotto and slick haired mafia. But lets not get into goons and stick to food eh…
The Italian cuisine is all about using the freshest ingredients and let their natural flavors come through. You will realize this when you savor the choicest dishes curated by Chef Marouane and paring them with wine selected by Master Sommelier Viraj Sawant. You will go on an unforgettable culinary trip to the regions of North Italy

It was well arranged with all of the local ingredients displayed especially the sausages, chorizho and stuffed pickles. The vespa scooter parked outside with fresh fruits and vegetables provides a pleasing touch. I still remember the Vespas of yore and the nostalgia always hits me when i see them on road and especially the new scooterettes .

After the round of welcomes and introductions with the other participants, we got down to business. It was also fun to see chefs and their commitment at work


Note – Each of the course below had a choice of veg and non veg and I went for the non-veg (obviously!!)

FIRST COURSE

Vitello Tonato – Veal slow cooked and served with tuna sauce and capers which is a dish from the Piemonte region – An absolutely brilliant dish, the veal was beautifully cooked and fall apart. It had the right moisture and the flavor of the capers and tuna was a subtle hit without being too obvious. I loved this dish
The veg version available is called Insalata di Verdure di Prato – Combination of of raw and marinated grill vegetable basil cream cheese, from the Lombardia region. (Did not taste)
Wine
Villa Antinori Bianco from the Tuscanny region – The wine was exquisite with a lovely citrus taste. Low on minerals, it was velvety on the tongue and a brilliant combination with the veal. I confess I did partake quite a lot of this wine

SOUP

La Cisra – A lovely subtle soup made with chick peas and winter vegetables. It had a very homely and comforting taste.

The next course was called Gnocchi Alla Piemontese which is potato gnocchi toasted with lamb ragout and cream of porcini. a skilfully prepared dish. The gnocchi was al-dente, always a pleasure and the ragout beautifully flavored. It was fresh without being too heavy on the spices. A must have

The vegetarian option had Pizzoccheri di taglio which is Buckwheat fresh pasta served with potato and savoy cabbage (did not taste)
Wine
Our master Sommelier chose the Ricossa Gavi to go with these dishes. The wine had high minerality and quite acidic on the tongue. I would prefer the Villa Antinori over this anytime
We had two choices in the Non-Veg itself. One was the Pollo Alla Valdostana, a marinated breaded chicken breast , melted Fontina cheese and taglioni pasta with a sprinkle of black truffle. A dish from the Aosta Valley in Italy known for snow capped mountains, the Mont Blanc, the pride of this valley. The breaded chicken as a stand alone was average but eat with it with a combination of the cheese and pasta, it made a beautiful flavor. All this complemented by the earthiness of the truffle. A match made in heaven

The other choice is called Branzino Alla livornese, a marinated sea bass toasted with cherry tomato, olives, capers and potato. This is a dish from Ligurial, known for its beaches and sea food, the Adriatic delivering its best to the Italian shores. I had a taste of this as well and I must say, it is a difficult choice to choose between both. The sea bass was perfectly cooked and all the ingredients beautifully combined for a winning dish. If you are going with your partner, I suggest you order both and share

For the veg, the dish is called Cannelloni alla Piacentina, which is cannelloni stuffed with spinach, ricotta, mascerpone served in a bed of basil tomato sauce.
Wine
We paired these with a Marchesi Antonori, a red wine with lovely velvety wine which had an exquisite fruity taste and a deep rich flavor which went well with the chicken.

PIZZA

Meanwhile the Chef was also busy making signature Italian pepperonu pizza. Yes I mentioned Italy is not only pizza but you cannot mention Italy but forget the pizza !! A perfect pizza is a combination of just the right amount of sauce and spice with the perfect crust. This was that kind of pizza. A brilliant thin crust gooey pepperoni pizza with just the right amount of tomato sauce and dripping with cheesy goodness. Imagine the cheese cobweb that just stretches all the way to your brain when taking a slice out and that was what the pizza was all about.

DESSERT

The last but not the least was the Pannacotta alla fragola, croccante al – Panna Cotta with crunchy chocolate and fresh strawberries. I have a weakness for Panna Cotta and though this did not wiggle as seductively as it should, the taste was decent and the fresh strawberries added a refreshing touch.

We also got a taste of tiramisu which cannot be missed if it’s all things Italy. This is not part of the menu

It was a pleasure interacting with everyone there especially Executive Chef Mahesh, Master Sommelier Viraj Sawant and the Master Chef Marouane.
