l'Altro is an unpretentious Italian restaurant with a focus on simple preparations with great taste. The restaurant imports all raw materials directly from Italy, where they have close ties with the people who find the truffles, grow the grapes and produce the handcrafted cheeses. At l'Altro, it's all about finding the very best Italian ingredient and treating them gently, so that there are clear lines of flavors all the way from farm to fork. The Michelin Guide has noticed this, and has awarded the restaurant a 'Bib Gourmand' for the correlation between price and quality. The restaurant was for many years owned by Elvio Milleri, the man behind the Italian Michelin restaurant Era Ora. In late 2016 he transferred ownership of the restaurant to two faithful employees, Valerio Marandola and chef Marcello Rosato, who has been behind the pots for the past seven years. The concept is therefore the same as it always has been. Good whole foods at reasonable prices. l'Altro proudly call themselves an 'antiristorante' - Italian for eating at home. And that's precisely how it feels to eat here. As with an Italian family - with an incredibly talented 'mama' in the kitchen.
As in Italy - mama calls the shots - so there is only one menu, which always consists of stuzzichini - Italian snacks, antipasti, pasta, main course and dessert. As in Italy, the wine plays an equally important role in l'Altro. Elvio Milleri has one of the largest wine cellars in the country, and continues to provide the wines for his former restaurant.
There is even a choice of different wine menus for the food. 'Buono' - the good, 'l'Ottimo' - the optimum, and 'Vintage', which dives deep in the basement for older vintages of Italian top wines. If you need just a quick bite of l'Altro at a low cost, the restaurant offers Italian quality take-away via the service GoTipster. The restaurant is divided into two levels, and the large first floor has space for larger parties of up to 50 people. There is also the restaurant's private dining room, where up to 11 people can enjoy themselves the Italian way.
