All together (adjective phrase) means in a group.
ex.

After a long battle with cancer mom is back home. Finally, we are all together.

Altogether as an adverb means entirely or on the whole.
ex.
"Your comments are altogether wrong!" - meaning entirely wrong.
" Even though the trip was very long and tiring, altogether it was a good idea to get away".

:D
