Alta Strada is a wonderful gem of a place in Wellesley. The food never disappoints, the ambience is relaxing, and service is generally impeccable.
Food was fantastic. Pasta dishes were well cooked and delicious. The garlic bread is a must!
Alta Strada is an outstanding Italian restaurant in Wellesley. The atmosphere is outstanding, the food is fresh and great, and the service is exemplary. We were served by Eric yesterday who designed a new cocktail just for my wife.
Delicious meal. We started with the garlic bread served with tomato sauce. Had the penne a La vodka as main meal. A treat since not all Italian restaurants have on menu. We went early (5:15) and was very quiet. Other parties were very spaced out which was nice due to covid.
Always an enjoyable experience. The service is excellent and fun, and I really appreciated the extra effort to promote COVID safety. Thank you!
Wonderful restaurant. The food was excellent! Pizza is amazing! Pasta dishes, salmon, everything was delicious. Warm and caring service.
Great food & service
Alta Strada is consistently outstanding. I came early on a Friday night. Was greeted with a smile and had a spectacular dining experience. Alta Strada cocktail is excellent!
Alta Strada is outstanding. The food and service are consistent and excellent! Their signature cocktail is the Alta Strada. Some a better at making it than others.

Reading other reviews, I guess we had a below average experience. While the decor is attractive, the noise level pleasing, and the service excellent, three of our four dishes were so bad we didn't finish them. Only the garlic bread was good, and three pieces for $8 is rather expensive. But not compared to the entrees at $24 each which we didn't finish. Maybe the regular chef was not cooking that night? I don't know what the problem was; I only know that was one of the worst meals we've ever had at a somewhat upscale restaurant. And definitely the worst value at any restaurant at its price point.
I had a wonderful night with my granddaughter to celebrate her 12th birthday. We were welcomed by the owner, and I casually mentioned the occasion. The meal and service was outstanding, and she even received a surprise dessert to celebrate!
Thank you so much.
The food is always quite delicious, and the service is very good. The noise levels were a reminder of why we don't go to Alta Strada more often...it's deafening and takes away from a nice evening out. It's interesting on this survey that the worst noise level is referred to as "energetic," which would denote a positive experience. It isn't!
There is no place better than Alta Strada and now Izzie has mastered the Alta Strada cocktail! Making it even more special!!
A gem in Wellesley!
WE had a most delicious dinner last evening ranging from salads through past selections and dessert. I would go right back in a minute. One small complaint is that we had to wait a long time to get our check at the end of the meal. If we had gotten done sooner, our table could have been used for another party on a busy Saturday night.
Especially fabulous servers and busing staff. They really took care of us well!
Service drinks garlic bread Caesar salad entrées and dessert all terrific… Will be back
Everything was wonderful!
Alta Strada is an outstanding restaurant in Wellesley! The food, ambience, and service are all terrific. Guy - The Manager - always drops by to say hello and makes us feel totally welcome. They continue to make their signature cocktail - the Alta Strada - just perfectly!
Amazing night. Great food and service.
We love dining at Alta Strada. The food, ambiance, and service are always outstanding! Hannah makes it particularly special. She has an incredible talent with making cocktails - particularly the signature Alta Strada! She always makes us feel welcome with her warm genuine personality.
I love this restaurant! We go there frequently, they periodically change their menus…food has always been incredible. We have “eaten our way thru the menu” at least twice. Staff is polite, friendly, professional.
Got together with my old fraternity brother from California and his wife and her sister. Had the Zecca Eggplant which was delicious. Fun time!
Alta Strada continues to be one of the best restaurant experiences in the Boston area. The service is excellent and the food is fresh and very good. The Alta Strada is their signature cocktail and it is excellent!
Always amazing. One of the few places where I would try anything on the menu.
We had a lovely dinner outside with heaters. The Lune was amazing. Ravioli the best my husband has ever had. The Caesar salad was a little different with the garlic crumbs - we loved it. Also very fun beer and wine and drink selection. I wish they had outdoor seating thru the winter.
The service was incredible, and the cocktails were great. Keep in mind though that the chicken parm doesn’t come with pats (comes with broccoli), so you might want to order a side of pasta. The mushroom pasta was soooo good. Highly recommend that dish.
Excellent service by Izzy, GM Guy came over to check on us. Very nice ambiance. Menu reduced through COVID but food was excellent.
Super as always!
The food is consistently good, and the service attentive, even when crowded. The only criticism one could make is that the noise level is very high--of course, people are enjoying themselves, but it's often hard to hear a partner or a friend across the table from you because of the nose level.
This is especially true at prime dining times on weekends.
Alta Strada continues to be an outstanding place for dinner. The food is fresh and the service is outstanding. We come here often.
This is my favorite Italian place in the area. Excellent food and service.
opening bar for seating would be welcome
need background music one can hear / it’s muffled and adds nothing at that level
Terrible experience, will not be returning very expensive for mediocre food. Avoid it!!
Alta Strada on a Thursday night is really active. The dining room is full and lively. The food is always outstanding and fresh. And when Hannah is there the signature Alta Strada cocktail is divine.
It’s a great place ! Delicious food
