Delicious Italian style pizza. The shrimp bruschetta makes a great appetizer.
Overall great experience - they had all of the Covid best practices in place. Would recommend going to anyone.
Brunch was delicious!!!
Overall very solid
It was very nice to be back, we ate outside and felt very safe, staff was great!! Very enjoyable night!
I would have wished they wiped down the outside seating with disenfective after the previous party got up. Masks are just enough in today’s environment.
Best pizza in DC! Just like in Italy.
Our first sit-down meal in months! We were seated outdoors at the edge of the tented area, but as the evening wore on and the danger of rain was gone, staff pulled back the tent curtains, giving us a gentle breeze. My entree of spaghetti with clams was cooked just right (al dente), and my husband had his favorite dish, baked ziti with sausage. Always a treat eating there. We've sustained ourselves with weekly pick-up from them, but a sit-down meal is better, for sure.
Great food. And they remembered my birthday!
Everything was delicious and the outdoor seating was lovely.
I went tonight with Alta Strada only offering outdoor dining and had a great experience. The service was friendly and helpful without being intrusive and all staff were wearing masks and careful about cleaning. They also let us order from both their menu and their pop up sushi restaurant next door. Everything was tasty and well-served, I'm glad they're in the neighborhood!
The food is consistently excellent. The service is great. The staff are constantly sanitizing, and from what I’ve observed are going above/ beyond the district’s guidelines. Highly recommend.
This place was amazing, the owner was extremely professional and took pride in his restaurant and staff. They had a very minor hiccup with staff communication and his professionalism and how he handled the situation made me not even think twice that it occurred. The food is amazing and affordable, I will 100% be coming back here!
Great experience on the patio. Excellent service!
The outdoor seating was nice!
Tables outside well spaced...excellent attentive service...chef in the kitchen👏👏
Great food with attentive and helpful service. Very comfortable atmosphere but not fancy. Though not a huge menu, it is plenty varied to satisfy everyone with a good wine list. Prices are about as expected for DC. Definitely would go back.
Great atmosphere, excellent service, and the food was even better. Definitely recommend.
Very delicious and great value! Wonderful wine and wide array of options!
The brunch food, drinks, and service was great! The one part about the bill that we did not understand was that they add a 3% charge on the bill for some reason that is NOT the gratuity but do not explain reasoning behind it.
A great neighborhood spot with amazing service and tasty food. This is a real go-to place.
Accommodated our large party .
Great Brunch and fun and friendly staff
Awesome bottomless brunch! Everything was great!
Great food at a very competitive price for DC brunch.
Unfortunately, the service was sub-par, with long waits between ordering dishes. Often the table had finished the dishes ordered and were left waiting for the server to return for new orders.
Went for a large group bottomless food & drink brunch. The meal was an excellent value, the food was delicious, and the drinks were strong and had a great variety of options. The ambiance of the restaurant was great, and would recommend for big or small brunch parties. Definitely will return!
Got to come to Alta Strada on a Valentines special menu. While this place is usually known for their home style Italian, when they decide to pull out the stops on a classy date night menu with beef tartare and Ny Steak they really shined! Every part of the meal was delicious from complementary champagne to tiramisu. The only thing we would have wished for was a little more attentive service but who doesn't like a little more time with their special someone.
Went in this past month for the Valentine’s Day special. Food was great, server was very attentive. The lobster ravioli was delicious, as well as the steak. Would highly reccomend.
I came here with my boyfriend for our anniversary and the beginning of dinner was sub-par. I put a note in my reservation that I wanted a nice table and got sat in a dark and tight space. I asked to change tables but the manager said they were unavailable. This was fine, but when the food got to our table I was underwhelmed. Definitely not worth $19. It was good, but not great. Service was good though. Probably won’t be coming back.
Overall a very good experience but with a few quibbles: our server was a bit intrusive, repeatedly came over to "check" on us when we were in the middle of the meal, he wasn't really offering anything and it got overly repetitive. My entree was not as described: I ordered shrimp piccata which on the menu made no mention of chili oil. I had asked the server several questions about dishes letting him know I could not do anything spicy but the shrimp was spicy, The waiter should have known that. A manager did come over when I said I could not eat the dish and graciously and quickly replaced it, also sending over a free dessert. That was handled perfectly but it should not have happened. The menu should be clear and the waiter should have known.
The PEI mussels in wine sauce were outstanding as usual, as was the shrimp piccata entree, a first for me. My husband went for the sausage rigatoni, the usual for him that he claims is delicious. The staff was very helpful in turning down the really loud music (probably turned up for the Friday evening happy hour crowd at the bar).
The food and service was excellent.
Tried it for the first time as a result of restaurant week. Had the brunch but had to pay extra for the full brunch. However the food was excellent especially the Brussels sprouts and French toast sticks! Yum!
Great service by our waiter, who brought out a free piece of cake when he heard it was my birthday.
Thoroughly enjoyed dinner, we were visiting from out of town, discovered Alta Strada searching for DC Italian restaurants, and loved the place - great casual vibe and delicious food.
We went during restaurant week and luckily the restaurant was not crowded. Although my guest had already been seated when I arrived, they could not locate my OpenTable reservation, finally offered to find a table only to realize they had already seated my guest. This was no big deal, but it should not have happened. The service was friendly and good but the sever could have contributed more to our experience. The manager did ask around to see if people were enjoying their meals which was unexpected and nice. The food was quite good and the portions were appropriate. We would go back.
It was awesome. One thing - my cacio e Pepe was a little spicy. Would’ve liked if some one let me know.
The food was amazing. The wait staff was extremely friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was very good except for Brussels sprouts which were way too salty. Wine was just ok - Chianti overpriced for the quality. Service was good - not intrusive. Have been here several times, and still like it very much
We had our first visit during restaurant week. We enjoyed a great meal. Service was excellent. We’ll be back!
