The menu changes to the pasta section limits you to only two choices that come with a protein. It would be nice to get more choices of pasta with a protein like in the past.

We went here for the first time the other day with a lot of anticipation! It was my husband’s birthday 🎂 The service was excellent. The food was very , very good. We had a beet salad and a cucumber salad. They were tasty! We ordered mafaldini and pappardelle with beef short rib as our main courses. We both ordered the larger portions thinking we can have leftovers for lunch. My husband’s order of mafaldini was completely eaten as it was delicious. I throughly enjoyed my meal and had the pleasure of finishing my left over portion for lunch! For dessert we had vanilla gelato and the chocolate torte. The server even had a lit candle on the cake for the birthday boy. It was very sweet. The only reason I didn’t give it a five star was the ambience seemed too sterile for me. But other that that, this restaurant is a winner! We will be back.

We had an amazing dinner from start to finish! Coleman was our server and he was excellent! We also appreciated having plenty of time to enjoy our dinner and visit with old friends. I had the fall greens salad, the salmon and also a small order of pasta..delicious!
We shared three desserts and they were all outstanding. I also loved the cranberry ginger margarita!
Alta Via is definitely one of my favorite places to go!

We have dined at Alta Via many times and also had takeout from there. This time, it was not as good as usual. The meat on the short rib pappardelle was chewy, and the squash was undercooked. The cacio e pepe was just okay. The branzino and chicken were good as usual. Overall, a mixed bag. Also, our server was overly attentive, interrupting often to force us along (we were not lingering). She cleared the table while a couple of people in our party were still dining. I'll give it another shot, as it's been good other times; just disappointing this time.

Reserved a table for five for a 4:15 seating and were the only diners there when we arrived. Enjoyed every plate that we had including 5 different pasta options, the calamari, beans & greens, and two cocktails. Alta Via will continue to be one of our celebration spots!

This was a wonderful dining experience. The only thing I would change would be the music, I think it should be some understated instrumental or jazz. It was loud and distracting from the overall elegant ambience.
