“love the food”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Love the food and the wait staff. The outside seating is a beautiful spot to have dinner. We had a restaurant.com gift certificate and we were not treated any differently because of it

“NO HEAT in Mid - November”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Lovely restaurant at the Hyatt Resort in Scottsdale. Inside and outdoor seating...your choice.

We dined here one evening of our hotel stay. It is modern decor and clean. Nice size bar that has delightful Limoncello.

Service was friendly and good. Menu is pretty limited. We opted for 3 small antiposti plates, 2 entrees and a carafe of wine. ALL of the food was delicious, especially the antiposti. We can highly recommend them. Wine was way overpriced. The food was high too, but it is a hotel restaurant. One kinda figures it will be. They give you complimentary tickets to the gondola ride when you dine here...normally a $10.00 per person charge/value.

All this sounds pretty good. So, why only a 2 Star rating...a Poor?

NO HEAT.

Mid - November and NO HEAT in the dining room. We told our server 3 times but nothing changed. We were SO cold we had to leave. We really would have liked to stay longer, but it was so uncomfortable in there. We really could not enjoy the food or the evening. Very sad. They did comp us the 3 small antiposti plates...about $13.00 but it did not make up for the evening. COLD is COLD.

So, if you decide to go and it is fall or winter...make sure they have heat.

“Tasty food but for Scottsdale, a wee bit pricy”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Loved being able to either sit in or outdoors. Menu lacks options. Great for a quick bite to eat. Friendly staff!

“Alto ristorante e bar offers great service”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

We had a light dinner at Alto ristorante e bar tonight.
The waite staff was excellent. Our server Chris was very good.
We shared the seared tuna steak and a bottle if wine. They had ZD Chardonnay for $59.00. This is a great price.
They split the tuna steak and shrimp dinner into two plates. The shrimp was great. The tuna was fatty and tough.
The manager was making his rounds and was concerned about the tuna. Chris took the tuna off the bill. The tuna was good except for fatty section that was not edible. This does happen...
The bread was very good.
They brought my wife a shawl to keep her warm. Very nice touch.
The service was excellent!!!
Chris was very good.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

My wife had the pacific salmon and I had the rib eye steak they were cooked just right. The service was the best we have had yet. We will be returning with my inlaws. We were given free tickets to the gondola ride which was very relaxing.
