Excellent service by Gino, personable and charismatic. The buratta app was one of the best flavor combos ive experienced recently. The sweet tang of the vinegarette and pomegranette seeds stood up to the nuttinesss of the hazlenuts and earthiness of the squash. The cheese was merely a vessel for the flavors to meet on. Moving on to the cacio e pepe, it might have been the best ive had in a restruant. Pasta was a perfect al dente and the spice was a perfect level to break through the sharpness of the pecorino. Lastly I had an espresso(pulled beautifully, only complaint was it was an overly large cup for a shot but thats really a nonissue) and the bomboloni was extremely fluffy. Hazlenut creme was a taste of a sophisticated nutella but the strawberry jam was not my favorite. All in all the exec chef has a creative head on his shoulders all while sticking to some traditional italian roots. For the price point this is a must visit restruant.
Our entire dining experience was amazing! Our waitress Zoey was so sweet and super helpful throughout the entire night. It was a beautiful environment, they had it nice and cozy inside despite the cold weather outside. We will certainly be coming back for our special occasions and date nights!
Brunch was great and they were able to accommodate our dietary restrictions. A true gem!
Alta Strada was able to accommodate our request for outdoor seating on the front patio, including a heater placed right next to our table and table and chairs thoroughly wiped off from a recent rain. A simple, easy menu of favorite Italian dishes suited the whole group. Each course was terrific, simply prepared, and served piping hot. I deleted one star because our appetizer, salad and main course came out on top of each other and crowded the table - should have been paced differently. Service was warm, friendly, helpful and professional. Alta Strada has become a family favorite.
Food came out quick and was very good! Happy hour online said 3-6, however it did not say only at the bar, so that was a little deceiving to us thinking we could get happy hour at the table also. Other than that, the place was great!
Baked ziti was very weak, bordering on terrible. It tasted like freshly boiled ziti pasta that was freshly placed in a deep dish and given a hint of tomato sauce and chopped meatballs then topped with mozzarella cheese and put under a heating element before serving. There was no flavor deriving from a marriage of onion and garlic and oregano and ricotta and parmesan, and those ingredients could not be discerned visually either.
Meatballs were weak and nearly tasteless.
The "famous" grilled garlic bread with spicy tomato was almost none of those things; good bread, no garlic, no spice flavor in the tomato sauce and not a famous flavor.
The shrimp scampi was fair. The broth had reasonable flavor. The bread that came with it was good.
The tiramisu was good.
The Negroni was good.
Our pastas were surprisingly very spicy to the point that you couldn’t taste anything other than the red pepper flakes. (We ordered the clam sauce and the vodka sauce, neither of which are traditionally spicy so it should have at least been noted on the menu.) However, the meatballs had very little flavor and tasted like the kid you can get in the frozen section of the grocery store.
Great pasta served by the loveliest staff! Thank you for a great evening out!
We were very underwhelmed by the food. Calamari was chewy, Chicken Milanese bone dry. There are so many better Italian places in the same price range.
The food was not as good as it normally is. I was disappointed. I had pasta with bolognase sauce and there was hardly any sauce and the pasta was bland.
The food was delicious and service fast and friendly. I would have given 5 stars except one of the servers was not wearing a mask, which I found very odd considering everyone else was.
Large party - service wasn’t great but food was good
Food was delicious and our party of 7 was well attended to.
Our server was very helpful and attentive. Kitchen was out of a few items. Biggest concern is that some kitchen staff weren't wearing masks.
Thanks for taking such great care of my daughter and her friends on her birthday. We appreciate you treating them with respect and providing terrific service.
Out of bronzino entree; unable to substitute for broccolini; seating next to a table of eight teenage girls and their banter; chair repeatedly bumped by passers-by because the aisle was too narrow.
I would recommend with some trepidation....
Absolutely wonderful experience with friends for lunch. Staff was attentive, friendly and the food was timely and tasty!
Food and service were good. Would go again.
Food was awesome and wait staff was very helpful.
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.
The food was not much better than going to a chain Italian joint like Maggiano's really. The burrata was the best thing. The house wine was kinda cheap. Mostly it's over priced and very inauthentic but OK.
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.
