Alta Strada Foxwoods Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant itself was clean, and ambiance was spot on. The down side to it was our waiter never brought our appetizer out and never came back to ask if we would have liked it to go either never mind apologize for the mess up. Instead of our original waiter coming back after the initial mess up another waiter brought the entree dishes and another checked up on us. Our original waiter did not come by at all until the very end to give us our bill...The food was sub par for the price....The only thing I will say was good is the gentleman who poured our water noticed immediately our table was unstable, and fixed it without hesitation.
When meatball appetizers described as "crunchy" actually are, you know you've hit on a winner. Accompanied by a spicy basil sauce, these were delicious. The fried calamari with their spicy marinara were so tasty and the bruschetta rounded out our excellent appetizer choices. For the entrees, two of us had the chicken parm based on the waiter's description (and it was delicious and I couldn't get enough of the marinara sauce). The portion is large so you might scale back on appetizers, or perhaps share a chicken parm. Others had tagliatelle bolognese and the in-house made pasta is a dream. The bolognese just enveloped the pasta and each bite was full flavored. After the meal we stayed awhile and just chatted over wine. The staff were terrific from start to finish. A lovely evening to be repeated.
We were seated and given water. Then we sat for almost a half hour before anyone took our drink order. It was a hostess that we flagged down and not even out waiter. My husband received the wrong wine anyway. When our waiter did show up, we just ordered appetizers then left. I was disappointed.
This is the best restaurant in Foxwoods, Italian themed/sourced and right near the theater. My in laws were visiting for New Years this time & a snow storm made us an hr late. Dominique and the staff were so quick to provide us a delicious, comfortable wine/3 course meal quickly. We are grateful! Happy New Year!!
Food was spectacular. The service however, subpar. Our server walked around the table and checked on every table except for ours, at least 5 times each table. Our drinks Sat on the table, empty and placed in open view, for over 20 minutes, while the server continued to disregard the table. After realizing she was not going to check on us, I had to call her over while she stood by an empty table. The tables around us all got their food walked over by her, despite arriving about 30-45 minutes after we had ordered, and our food had to be delivered by another server and the manager. Once the food was placed on our table, she realized that her manager was there and quickly walked over to ask us how the food was. With only having the food food .2 seconds, not really much we can say at that point. The following time she came to check on us was when all of our plates were empty and she came by with the dessert menu. Food 10/10. Server Rachel 1/10
Very disappointed in the fact that no price was on the menu for adding salmon to a Caesar Salad. Got the bill and it was $35!!! Really???? The salad was only $14 - and quite small. OK, I guess I should have asked but that is just ridiculous. When I inquired with the manager, he said "they charge the price of the salmon entree and the waiter should have told us". Well, he didn't.
Wonderful ambiance, great Thermarest bedding (got a great night's sleep), clean rooms, beautiful lobby, impeccable, friendly service. Close proximity to Foxwoods Casino. Only had time for breakfast which was well prepared and delicious. Would stay again in the future and try the lounge and dinner next time.
Very disappointed. When they seat us we are in a back corner near what appeared to be the linen closet. Then it was awkward because the wait staff stands back there and stares at you. Paid a lot of money for food that we didn't enjoy. My chicken wan't cooked all the way and didn't realize it until i put it in my mouth because the lights are so dim. Our waitress was nice but not very attentive.
We spent Thanksgiving weekend at Foxwoods Casino and chose Alta Strada for dinner before a holiday show. Service was good and food was delivered promptly allowing for a leisurely meal. Portions were large. We split a pear and arugula salad and both ordered Chicken Parmesan. The portion was huge. Fortunately we had a fridge in our hotel room and could get a take away box. We had enough chicken left for two more dinners for two at home. Overall it was good value for money despite being an upscale restaurant. We were seated at a nice quiet banquette and enjoyed a lovely start to our evening.
Very nice welcome at entrance, good service, creative dishes, excellent pasta, good quality olive oil.
Crunchy meatballs, beet salad, tagliatelle, crispy chicken under brick and cavatelli all very good.
Portions are a little small, especially fried calamari and beets.
The dining room could be a little more formal being such a fine restaurant.
Unfortunately the location doesn’t work well for us, we go to the Grand Pequot Casino which is a very long walk away, especially in heels.
But we go to Alta Strada whenever we attend a concert in that hotel.
One of the best restaurants at Foxwoods!
This is one of my favorite restaurants, the food and service are always consistent and top notch. It is hard to find a restaurant that is the same high quality every time, but Alta Strada never disappoints. Their wait staff do a great job of guiding the guest through the menu and dining experience.
My friends and I decided to have dinner before going to a comedy show, we tried an assortment of items from the menu as we always do. The ability to get half portions of the pastas is a really helpful feature since it allows you to try more on the menu. We ordered our usual favorites: the ricotta appetizer, the mushroom mezzeluna, and a prosciutto and arugula pizza. We also were blown away by the burrata appetizer which featured fall flavors of green apple and hazelnut that were a perfect combination. For dessert we enjoyed the Mascaporeos and the Panna Cotta.
Overall, the experience was exactly what we were looking for. Great food, great drinks, and a comfortable space to enjoy the company of those around me. I recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the casino and looking for authentic Italian fare.
Lastly, I would like to commend Alta Strada's GM Lauren. She not only greeted us at the door, but checked in to ensure that our dining experience was enjoyable. That extra level of customer service was greatly appreciated and will not soon be forgotten!
We dined here two nights in a row while staying at Foxwoods. It's a hidden gem tucked away in the Fox Tower. My go-to dish here is the Brick Chicken. The skin is wonderfully crispy and the meat is moist and flavorful. I've tried "brick chicken" at other restaurants and no one has ever come close. Highly recommend this dish. I can't comment on other dishes because I get the same thing every time I visit. Even the bread with wonderful crispy crust and airy center dipped in house made olive oil/spices, is just wonderful.
