The food was not the best. The pizza was not good. The chicken parm was decent but there is an up charge for 1/2 cup of pasta. It was expensive for average food.
We had a lovely evening at Alta Strada! Our server Carlos was lovely, it was our first date in months due to wedding planning & we were pleasantly surprised receiving complimentary champagne! The food was delicious and everything was perfect.
As always the food was outstanding. One of our favorite go to restaurants at the Mosaic.
The octopus was excellent. The pasta was not. Their QR-code menu fails on phones that have security suites installed; fortunately they had a paper copy available. Some of their anti-covid procedures are obsolete.
Entrees were great! Special was good and reasonably priced, arugula salad didn’t have shaved parmesan cheese instead it was grated, not the same thing :(
Great food. Great service. We will be back
The place is nice, the service outstanding, but I wasn't too impressed with my entry. The salmon was pricey and I was expecting the best. It was way too salty...the entire entree was like that! The salad was nice and fresh. I would still recommend the place. Maybe it was just a bad day for the chef
The food was good but the service was practically nonexistent. They got my husband’s order incorrect and our waiter only checked on us once - once we received our meals. We even had to track him down for our check. I understand it’s still pandemic times and we were there at lunch on a weekday, which is slower, but it was frustrating to have such minimal service.
Exactly service everyone was so nice. Definitely coming back
very good enjoyed by all in party would come back again
It's hard to believe that you can get Italian food this good in NoVa! So good! Everyone you who works there is so kind and welcoming! I hesitate to say too much because I want to be able to get a table
We have been coming to Alta Strada for years now. The food was very good. Did not disappoint. My Rigatoni Bolognese was fabulous. My husband always get the Giant Chicken Parm, to be honest, was a little less "giant" this time, but equally as wonderful as in the past. Also, they use to give you a complimentary basket of hot sour dough bread with oil olive, but now there is a charge for it. Understandably so, with so much loss of business during the pandemic. I would highly recommend Alta Strada for a lovely meal out!
We ate outside on a sunny day. I had the mussels and my friend ordered the eggplant parmesan; both were very good. Our waiter could not have been more delightful: both attentive and friendly, but not obtrusive.
Had a lovely mother’s day brunch there for two. Sat outside and had a delicious carbonara. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive but never bothersome. She didn’t hover and we never felt rushed. The food was great and my Aperol spritz was delicious.
Stellar service and good selection of choices - salmon eggs benedict is amazing!
I love the Alta Strada in Mosaic! It was my birthday and my mom and I were frantically searching for a last-minute birthday dessert. All the other restaurants in Mosaic were closed (or closing and unwilling to take a last-minute order), but Alta Strada made us some DELICIOUS cannoli even though they were about to close. Really made my birthday and we swore we'd go back soon.
Well, this time we went for Mother's Day brunch and it was excellent! Highly recommend the Lemon Ricotta pancakes - so light and fluffy that you can eat a lot of them (yay!) and the creamy ricotta on top is perfect.
came for Sunday brunch and waited for 40 minutes for our meal, food was good but wait was long
Birch was great. The good is consistently delicious. It is also a good value.
As always, excellent food at a great price. Very nice wine list, and impeccable service in a safe outdoor setting.
Evan, our waitress was exceptional as was the food. Thank you!!!
Good food and great service, waiter Carlos from Peru is the best!
It’s one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Northern Virginia :)
Sent my food back because it was SO salty, I felt salt on my mouth for days, and they didn’t comp it from the bill. Sad that that was our first time out since COVID. Their DC restaurants are SIGNIFICANTLY better.
The ambience was nice, service was good but for some reason all of our dishes were wayyy too salty.
The service was very good- the staff was incredibly kind. The food, however, was mediocre at best. Neither me or my date finished our meals.
We had a lovely time. Goop was amazing, service was wonderful. We were never rushed. An outstanding evening!
Loved it! Amazing service, yummy food! Great healthy options
Went out to dinner with my friend. We waited quite a bit of time before we even got acknowledged once we were seated. But once I let the hostess know the bartender helped us right away. She was great! Food was good, but by far the cannolis were the best.
Per our request, we were seated outside. Our waiter, Carlos, was very accommodating. Drinks, appetizers and meals were very satisfying.
100%. A favorite
We had a great meal and very attentive service. The food was delicious, very generous portion sizes and served quickly and hot! We are very appreciative of the COVID measures they have in place also. (I’m sorry I don’t take a picture of my husbands Gigantic chicken Parm. Seeing is believing, and he said it was delicious. Andy is a really good manager.
I took my three grandchildren (ages 15, 13 and 11) to dinner on Monday. They loved the food and I appreciated the great service from an attentive staff. We’ll be back!
The pasta was delicious. I'll definitely go back. Wine a bit pricey. Should have some lower range options.
Their food is terrific - especially the pasta dishes!
The food was good not outstanding.
Service was good, we had a great table outside.
Yes we will come again.
Food has been fantastic every time we have visited. Our server Evan was very friendly and welcoming. Anytime we are hungry for Italian food we go to Alta Strada!
My companion and I split the meat pizza, which has a wonderful crust but could have used more pepperoni. Nicely sauced. We shared the ziti with meat sauce and really liked that, too. One friend had same pizza and also liked it. We had the chocolate gelato, which was excellent. Our waited was very good, but I like my water glass refilled and it never was.
Great dishes and good portions. We loved the arugula salad, fettuccine, meatballs and tiramisu!
Definitely one of the better Italian restaurants in NOVA, and the service can't be beat!
My expectations were exceeded. The decor was charming, food delicious and service perfect. One of the best dining experiences I've ever had!
