It was average.
Excellent service and great food. We sat outside far away from the door and the wait staff still kept on top of everything. The complimentary tiramisu for my fiancees birthday was a nice touch.
First date!!! Big day!!!!
Portions were big, but everything was very tasty! Service was generally pretty fast.
We ordered off of the 3 course restaurant week menu. The portions were huge and very delicious. Our mixed drinks were also tasty. The restaurant was quiet and intimate. The service was good, although we weren't asked until late if we wanted second drinks. My husband's plate was extremely hot, but the food again was delicious.
My experience started off horrible. Arrived on time to my reservation for the front desk attendant to say the ac inside the building is out and I can sit you outside but you have to be done eating before 8:30pm! Are you kidding me? My reservation was for 7:45pm. I was going to leave when the manager on duty overheard the conversation and fixed the problem. The food was good. The server wasn’t attentive enough for her to only a few tables outside.
The food was good and the service was okay. My party made reservations to eat at a table indoors but their air conditioning was not work so we ate outside.
The service was excellent and we received our food fast and hot.
I visited during restaurant week, and everything was amazing! Friendly and prompt service, generous portion sizes, tasty food. Highly recommend!
Great deal for restaurant week! The food was incredible and the staff was very friendly. Will definitely be back!
Great experience! Absolutely love the food.
Food is amazing! Spicy Caesar salad is very good. The meatball appetizer is good as well. The rigatoni bolognese is. 10/10. Great and fresh Italian food.
Really amazing restaurant with great outdoor seating!
Good food, attentive staff … but too loud. Manager was willing to reduce radio volume when asked.
The salads were fresh and delicious! All of the pasta dishes we had we’re amazing! The baked ziti was incredible! Definitely would eat here again!
Food was trash
Food was great. Host and servers were very attentive.
A little pricey, but very tasty! Chicken parm was delicious.
One of our favorite restaurants. Food is consistently great!
It was a lovely space, excellent vibes, and extremely caring staff. I have Celiac disease which can make eating Italian food difficult but I always felt very supported. I will be going back!
I took my SO out for father's day dinner and it was 3/5. He had a pizza while I had a chicken parmesan and a few drinks. The sizes were proportionate if not more, worth the value. However my broccoli was way overdone and a Long Island iced tea was too strong the first time and then the second one was too watery. Unfortunately our waitress did not check up on us periodically.
Service was fantastic. Relaxed atmosphere and food was great. Portions are moderately large.
It was happy hour and the server seemed weirded out that we didn’t want food and only drinks. The restaurant wasn’t crowded and he never came back to the table. Still tipped really well but pretty confused.
A very pleasant surprise. Will certainly try to go back.
One of my favorite restaurants! We celebrated Mother’s Day and our son’s Grad School graduation!
I am used to good Italian food and it looks like it COULD have been good, only everything was burnt to a crisp. The chicken parm was burned badly and the broccoli sides were charred and burnt badly. I should have sent it back and asked for a new one not burnt to a crisp. Pretty strange. The only reason I would go back would be to try the same plate (I like parm) and see if it tastes good unburned up.
The food was excellent! The ambiance was nice and serene. Me and my family enjoyed the Atmosphere
Get the Caccio e pepe and definitely the garlic bread. I'd skip the drinks, nothing special.
Excellent good and service!
Amazing service staff was super friendly. I had the Bianca pizza it was amazing. I wish they had some more pasta options on the menu though.
Really solid dining experience. Very quick service, quiet but social atmosphere, and great food. Started off with meatballs and garlic bread that were fantastic. Entrees were chicken Parmesan and baked ziti, also good. Desert was splendid, cannolis and chocolate cake. Highly recommend!
Great food - had the dessert and pizza. Would recommend going! Pizza is Neapolitan style - good amount of cheese and sauce.
Nice outdoor seating on a beautiful afternoon. Our starters (meatballs and arugula salad) were tasty. I was very disappointed by the clam pasta dish. I was picturing spaghetti vongole, which I’ve had there before. This was something else. Pink crabmeat in a red pepper sauce with breadcrumbs on top. Odd taste and texture combo, IMHO! Fortunately my husband was willing to share his delicious margarita pizza. They did kindly remove the pasta dish from the bill.
Alta strada always delivers quality pasta dishes, TRY THE SHRIMP SCAMPI APPETIZER! its divine.
It was just okay. The food was mediocre (I remember it being better). It’s far from my house and not worth the travel but might be fine if you live in the same neighborhood.
Really need to allow cork fee again. The wine list is limited This the only restaurant I frequent that says “no because of covid” which needs to be adjusted as only one I know of who hasn’t allowed back.
Bring back corkage fee!!
The service was perfect. The drinks were good and the food was fresh and well seasoned. I understand why but I wish the were a few more menu items- calamari, francaise, spaghetti sides. But loved it and will return.
We dined outside which worked very well...very attentive staff and helpful with our selections...very safe experience and delicious food.
Very nice outdoor ambiance. Unfortunately no more happy hour available, however.
