The first time we were out for several months, felt good to get all gussied up/dressed.

My wife wore a dress, haven't seen that in a long time

Last time we were there we sat in a booth in the bar, we got the same spot, it is our good luck space, first time we were there was after my wife had her check up for lukemeia, and it was good check up so we will continue to go

This is seriously one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. I love the mushroom appetizer with its grilled cheese and earthy notes. That appetizer keeps me up at night. Their cocktails are great as well. Highly recommend this place!

Looks like they are still on an abbreviated menu, but the selection is still adequate. Presentation, service and most important, taste are all very good. The only detractor is the ambiance. It is rather cold inside. Both temperature and atmosphere. Also, the music was not dinner music. 80's pop hits?

The server and host were outstanding. Very knowledgeable, courteous and attentive. The cocktails were well made and tasty. Food presentation was lovely but nothing great about the taste or flavor. All good enough tasting, but nothing there 'wow'ed us. Despite great service, the food won't entice me back for another visit.

It’s decorated very nicely, server was great. You can tell they are taking Covid crisis seriously. But I expected to be wow’d by the food. It was good, for sure but really a tad underwhelming from the hype I have read. The Brussel sprout & green salads were excellent though.

Had an excellent meal of salads a shared appetizer and two of their wonderful pasta dishes. (Gemelli for me and Mushroom Bolognese for my wife). Mary Kay, our waitress, was friendly, professional and unobtrusive knowing when to check in and when to leave us to our conversation. Desert and the latte and cappuccino my wife and I had were all excellent as well.

We have been trying to get into Alta Via since it opened, this was our first visit. Our server was great, very friendly & knew the menu down to the last detail, in depth descriptions of the entrees. The beans and greens were unique, unlike others I’ve had, but in a good way, they were fantastic! My meal was excellent, the meatball entree. My husband had the seafood pasta entree, he thought it lacked flavor & there was very little crab. My friend said her pasta was a bit soggy. Her husband said the chicken parm was delicious. So, overall 50/50 on the food. We all said we would go back sometime to give it another try.
