Food was delicious! Definitely family friendly. The place is small so i recommend a reservation. And don't expect a quiet intimate dinner. It was pretty noisy. But overall, would recommend it.
Great pizza and salad.
Best pizza in the area! Reasonable prices. Outdoor dining.
Nice looking place with casual atmosphere. Chick parm was good, but spaghetti and spinach ravioli had little taste. Pizza is on the thicker side if that is how you like yours. Friendly staff, did not charge for wife’s ravioli that she did not like.
Not up to the quality of the old Faccia Luna. Very small appetizer portions.
We had a fun evening with a great server, Norman. He was attentive and accommodating to our every need.
The special appetizer he suggested was delicious. We also enjoyed arugula and beet salads and a house salad.
Both pizzas, one Hawaiian and the other custom made were excellent with enough to take some home to enjoy a second day.
Love Alto Fumo for its choices and quality. Excellent beer and cocktail selection as well as a small but quite good wine list at great prices.
The food was typical American-Italian. They have a nice happy hour and the drinks are rather good. The place was full when we were there and it was quite noisy so if you're looking for a quiet dinner you might want to avoid Alto Fumo.
Kinda sucked tbh
A nice place to grab dinner. A bit loud. Food was very good and the wait staff was friendly
Great place, great food, moderately priced. I would recommend it to a friend and plan to come back!
We really enjoyed the food and the ability to park in the lot behind made the entire experience very easy!
This is one of our favorite casual place offering excellent choices in salads, sandwiches, pasta and pizza. Many nice choices or can create your own. Good selection of beverages all at reasonable prices. Our group enjoyed the house salads and the beet and arugula salads. The veggie lasagna was a special and it was well prepared with a good amount of veggies. The pizza is great here with good crust and a nice choice of toppings. Our server was excellent, very timely and attentive as needed. He allowed us to enjoy our complete meal without rushing apps and entrees to the table. Thank you.
Amazing pasta and salads. The pasta was definitely fresh and one of the best I’ve had in the DMV area. Will be going back many more times.
It says a lot that of all the restaurants in Arlington I chose this one to dine at for my birthday. There’s something very cozy and comforting about Alto Fumo. I was happy to see the food was just as it was when they were Faccia Luna. Great food and friendly service.
Alto Fumo was Faccia Luna for about 20 years before it closed last year. We were concerned, but Alto Fumo is very much like its predecessor: a great neighborhood Italian restaurant with terrific pasta, pizza, salads, subs, craft beers and drinks.
Food was delicious! They kindly let us modify our reservation to a larger number of people. Restaurant was very busy and we had a to wait a very short bit for our reserved table. Seemed reasonable. The owner kept us apprised of how long we'd have to wait and offered a beer to us. Server was timely. Had to wait a bit for the food, but many tables sat down at once. Food was worth the wait. We would go again.
Alto was absolutely slammed because of the marine corp marathon , however the owner was present throughout the restaurant, talking to people and making sure they were taken care of. Our server was excellent as was the food, the toasted ravioli's are a must and the pepperoni pizza had real pepperoni, Price was very good especially for this area and when we return to visit Arlington we will make Alto one of our stops along the way ....One last thing...Make a reservation as they fill up quick and it's a small restaurant, we had a 5:30 reservation and they took us right away
On one of the busiest weekends (MCM) runners filled into all the places to eat pasta. Alto Fumo was no exception. Yes, it was busy, pasta was good but Hospitality was on point. I’m assuming it was the owner/general manager who was so kind to us apologizing for wait....really no wait at all. Thanks for a great evening!!
Everything was phenomenal! We made a reservation via Open Table and walked right in to our table. Drinks and food were all perfect! Service was great! The restaurant got busy as the evening pressed, definitely a popular place. We will absolutely be back whenever we go to DC again!
Atmosphere was so comfortable and enjoyable! Pizza was good enough, but this place is a great spot to enjoy a meal! Staff was fantastic. I would absolutely recommend this place to friends.
I love the pizza at Alto Fumo, formerly Faccia Luna. I really don't understand why they changed the name? If in an effort to "rebrand" nothing has changed except the name and a few additional food items. While I love their pizza, it's one of my favorites in the area, the restaurant is quite disappointing. The restrooms are gross and the dining room feels dirty. Luckily last night it was nice enough to eat outside. Great location great pizza but for me it's an eat and run kind of place.
Enjoyed Delicious food and fun outdoor dining for send off dinner for our adult kids
Good pizza, although we went there for brunch and they no longer have a brunch menu. Good food though!
Fast and casual and always good
I had a reservation for 9:00 and was fine waiting a little longer to sit outside on the patio. However, the hostess completely forgot about us. Several people that came in after us were seated before us. It wasn't until the bartender said something to the hostess after we had been waiting for almost 45 minutes that we were finally seated. The bartender was great and was tipped very well but the rest of the staff there is pretty incompetent. The food was average and not worth the wait. Will not be going back.
Great happy hour prices but poor service. We sat outside and waited 15 minutes to be greeted even with multiple servers coming in and out. By the time someone took our drink order we only had time for one happy hour priced drink. Drinks took another 15 to come out from the bar. Mojito was small but made very well and only $4 on HH. Pizza was good but not good enough to make me want to return.
Good service but pizza wasn't the best. It was good, but there's other Italian pizza in the area I would go to instead. Wanted to try because it was newer to Arlington. Marinara for the fried ravioli was flavorful
I had a very pleasant and flavorful meal with my neice on a Sunday evening. The food was excellent (toasted ravioli appetizer; lobster ravioli entree; killer chocolate cheesecake) and it was a real pleasure to be able to sit outside. I will definitely be back.
Great wait service, friendly team. We loved our pizzas, and I loved my beet and goat cheese salad. The tira misu was mediocre, but you don't go to these places for desserts. I would definitely go again!
We had ordered two orange crushes from the happy hour menu when they came out one was very light and filled heavily with liquor and the other heavy with orange juice, after a few minutes the waiter came out and I explained that we would like to send these back and get two beers. After a few minutes he came back with our beers and a few minutes before our pizzas came out the bartender came out to question us about what was wrong with the drinks. I am have been a chef for over a decade and I manage a highly successful restaurant in dc and this service today was lackluster and combative , it was my wife and I’s first time there we live in Ballston and sadly we will not be back.
The staff was great! They were nice enough to play the Caps game with the sound on.
Great overall experience. We had a large party and they were accommodating to the space we needed.
The food and service were excellent. We were a large family group and they accommodated us nicely. We will definitely be back.
Food and service were great as usual. The staff and owner were super friendly and accommodating. Loved it.
The pizza was INCREDIBLE. It took forever. We knew it was fired and would take a while, but the restaurant was not busy and it took much longer than we expected.
Service wasn’t ready and food was not good. Very overpriced.
Overall just a miss. All the pastas were “meh.” Maybe we’ll come back and try the pizza.
Really good beet salad and pizza!
Pasta and Pizza really wasn’t all that impressive. I expected a little more for an Italian restaurant.
Pasta with pesto cream sauce was amazing! Pizza was delicious as well
