    Celebrated a friend's birthday with Bruch at this location. What a wonderful surprise! Food was delicious and service was very friendly and warm. They were able to personalize our brunch with a small scoop of ice cream and candle to celebrate our friend's birthday. Would definitely recommend this place!

    We arrived right on time for our reservation and were surprised to find a line at the reception desk. There seemed to be confusion, and it took a while before we were attended. Once seated, things went well, although our waitress had quite a lot of real estate to cover. The food was excellent, and they have an extensive variety of Italian wines. The only other issue was a thumping noise from above, which was somewhat annoying. According to the staff, there is a fitness center/spa above the restaurant. We speculated throughout the meal as to what was actually causing the heavy thumping.

    Home made pasta and mozzarella. Delicious and delicate. The only thing that could have made this a 5 1/2 star review would have been if they shaved white truffles on my already yummy mushroom ravioli.

    The waiter was impressive. He knew the dishes well and was very attentive. The restaurant was very warm, apparently their climate system is not run on a separate zone than the casino. Calamari was average, marinara sauce was bland. The brick chicken looked good. I ordered the pork dish which the waiter said was excellent. I found it dry and not very tasty at all.

    Unless you are more interested in expensive steak houses or casual this is probably the best restaurant in the MGM Grand (now renamed Fox Tower) side of the complex. It's just off the casino floor so try to get seated in the back away from the smoke that permeates Foxwoods. I would describe this restaurant as faux-Italian; adequate food prepared by foreign food workers.

  • Killer burger wasn't
    PeterVIP
    Dined on 9/8/2014
    Initially when we arrived the hostess tried to put us at a small corner table even though there were many open booths. The waiter was very friendly, but told us the kitchen would be able to cook a burger appropriately. However the burger, listed as a "killer burger" in the menu, came out well done rather than medium. In addition there was no lettuce or tomato, and when we asked for these small shreds of lettuce and sliced cherry tomatoes wer brought out. Clearly the burger should not be ordered, but the menu listing seemed encouraging. The chicken parmigian was very good. The other disappointing thing was that though the charge from the burger was removed from the menu, there was no other attempt to make up for this such as free dessert.

    We had dinner at Alta Strada prior to a show at the Foxwoods Grand Threater. Over all, The food was good. The Pesce di Mare was excellent, fried veal meatballs (appetizer) were delicious. The Chicken Parm was OK. Our server was a very nice young man who kept us up to date on our order. The appetizers and cocktails were very prompt, but it took a very long time for our dinner to arrive. This prevented us from considering dessert or coffee.

    Apps and pizza were good. Entrees fell short. Server seemed to be occupied with his larger table and ignored us. Never once poured our bottle of wine. (Which was brought to us warm). Probably won't be going back. Other options close by that are better.

    The food was delicious! I ordered the mushroom, truffle oil, rosemary pizza. It was to die for. My husband ordered the homemade pasta with pork and a spicy sauce. It had the perfect amount of heat... it hit just in the back of your mouth and the pasta was fresh. Our waiter, Brendan, saws amazing. He was so detailed while describing food he almost had me order the swordfish special and I hate seafood! Will definitely return here.

    This was my third visit to AltaStrada, and like the previous two, both myself and dining companion had an excellent meal. I thoroughly enjoyed the mushroom ravioli. My friend asked for a modification to the rigatoni preparation, and the request was taken care of without any question. A kitchen that will place the customer above their own comfort, is a place that will get my repeat business. So double down and bring friends to Alta Strada. You won't be disappointed.

    Stayed at Foxwoods this weekend and was pleasantly surprised by Alta Strada. The bread was delicious and hot when delivered, the olive oils was infused with basil and had a great flavor. The Shrimp Scampi had a great sauce and the shrimp were of acceptable size and texture. All pasta dishes were hot and al dente. We will return to this Italian spot. Great service too!

    My wife and I had a great meal and an interesting (but young) organic chianti. Seating is table out front or half circle cozy booths in the back by the open kitchen. We enjoyed local mussels in a tasty garlic sauce and we both ordered the chitarra - we had never had it before. was delicious. Highly recommend.

    Meh is the best way to describe this. Food was over priced for what we received. Everything was doused in basil, and while i thoroughly enjoy basil, I don't want my meal to completely taste like it. The best thing on the menu was the burger... it's an Italian restaurant. In the end, there are much better places to go.
