Alto Cinco first opened its doors in September of 1995 as a takeout restaurant only. In 1999, the restaurant expanded to open a small dining room that consisted of seven tables and the bar area. For many years, Alto Cinco packed its cozy dining room every night...feeling more like a West Village cantina than a Mexican restaurant in Central New York. Finally in 2014, Alto Cinco was given an opportunity to expand into the space next door, and after months of renovations now includes a newly expanded dining room. Both Alto Cinco and Otro Cinco are owned and operated by Johanna Yorke.
