My party of four was there for dinner on a Saturday evening. Overall, I was pleased with the food and service, but the noise level was pretty uncomfortable for me…we nearly had to shout for others at the table to hear us. By the way, all four of us are ages 45-55 with excellent hearing.
Experience was OK. Chef used WAY too much garlic (we each had a pile of slices on the side of our plate) in the sauces and other components were under-seasoned.
Their food continues to be great. And the service has been very good our last few visits. Highly recommend!
Food was great. My favorite Italian restaurant. This is great place in the Mosaic District.
Excellent lunch menu, and service was very strong (Thanks Sergey!). The butternut squash soup was some of the best either myself or my client has had. Great place for a business lunch.
The server did a great job but the reason why I only gave three stars was he was NOT wearing a mask. Also the 80’s club music was too loud. But the food was great.
Food good, service and waiter slow, too loud and over priced. Jb
Happy hour wine-cheese-salumi is great. Other items that we saw seemed appealing. Shared a margarita pizza that was meh and the baked ziti that was fabulous. The tiramisu and coffee were terrific. We’ll return.
The menu was a surprise, not too many traditional pasta dishes. It has cheeseburger on it. But the food taste good and definitely a come back place
Priced high for the quality of the food.
Very kind Service, wonderful food, value Price, outstanding place
We had a lovely date night. The tagliatelle and chicken parm were both great. Very attentive service.
Excellent service, food, portions! Staff were all great and took the time to sanitize seating after use too.
Great food and service. Our waiter was amazing. He kept us informed that food would be a little delayed and offered free dessert due to that. We really appreciated him letting us know. Once food arrived, it was amazing...as usual. We will be back.
Food was about the same as Olive Garden.
The food was good. The service was good. There were good vibes inn the atmosphere.
Nice place to dine. Nice ambiance. Miss their tortellini however!
Wonderful. However a little slow to get started.
Gino took good care of us.
We had told them in our reservation that it was a special occasion and they offered some champagne for a toast and it was lovely. We felt really cared for and will definitely be back.
We loved our Alta Strada lunch. Our server was excellent and the food was fantastic! Mosaic is always fun to visit and the Alta Strada vibe is energetic and friendly.
Dinner was enjoyable.
Had a wonderful experience at Alta Strada. Excellent service, atmosphere, and food. We sat outside and enjoyed the view. Looking forward to returning.
Jack greeted me at the door with a great big smile. Service and food was excellent.
We were there for brunch and we had the best waiter always on top of every order. The service was fast, our coffee cups were always full. Thank you Sam for your service.
The food and service were good, garlic bread and bolognese were the best, but very expensive for what it was.
good experience, would recommend to others. outdoors very noisy early
We had the baked ziti, the shrimp scampi (which does not have pasta but has an amazing broth) and the garlic toast. Our only recommendation would be to make the garlic toast pieces a bit smaller and to bring a spoon for that amazing scampi broth!
Staff was unprofessional. Plenty of tables were available outside but wouldn’t sit us outside. Waiter was snarky and didn’t like yo be bothered. Not going back.
Overall a very pleasant experience for brunch on Sunday morning. Food and Service were excellent. Noise level was a bit high, but some of that was due to the Sunday Morning Farmer's Market held every Sunday. Ricotta Pancakes were wonderful, and the bacon (requested to be cooked crispy) was also excellent and plentiful.
My wife and I went to Alta Strada to celebrate our anniversary. The service was impeccable. Carlos was super attentive and accommodating, one of the best servers we’ve ever had. The food was delicious and perfectly cooked. The tiramisu is a must!
The only thing I would change is giving a little bit more time between the appetizers and entrees but obviously that is not always possible.
The experience was amazing and the ambiance was great. 10/10 would recommend.
Carlos was very knowledgeable on the menu and most helpful. His recommendations were excellent. The next time we are in northern Virginia we will be sure to eat at Alta Strada Mosaic. We had a great experience.
First time and will definitely be back. Good was amazing and server/bar tender was great.
I didn’t like that all waitstaff working outside did not wear masks
Fresh pasta with incredible pizza and the Chicken Parmigiana was excellent. I have to mention the cocktails from their vast selections were tops.
We ate outside right next to the play area. Beautiful evening and fun to hear the kids playing on the green area. I had spaghetti with clam sauce. Very good! could only eat half the portion. Others in group had bolognese, ravioli, spaghetti with AOP sauce. Everyone enjoyed. The garlic bread was excellent. would be nicce if bread was complimentary.
We were the only table there at noon and nobody came over until we flagged down staff about 30 minutes after we sat. Food is mediocre at best... did not realize Italian pasta sauce is loaded with black pepper. Was suppose to get cheese with meatballs but that was forgotten.
Would not go back considering it was not even very reasonably priced. Not worth it.
Not very please with the eggplant parmesan. Burnt around the edges, dry on top and greasy underneath. Service was terrific and appetizers were good.
The restaurant was not busy at all at 7:00 on a Thursday. We were seated promptly and the waiter arrived soon after. He suggested a nice reasonably priced wine. The menu is simple but all of the dishes were delicious.
The eggplant parmigiana was full of grease, we could have measured out a cup full of oil/fat. The pizza crusts were very hard. The chicken parmigiana was tasty but incredibly salty. The branzino was good but quite small for the price.
