Autostrada is a place with a simple philosophy. Inspired by the casual osterie of Italy, the focus is on a simple menu where quality ingredients shine, regional wines that represent a place, and a room filled with warmth and bustle.

Great service.
We were going to a concert after dinner and the3 server was on top of our time scheduke and did not make us feel hurried at all.
The food was excellent and unique.
The pace was not too bust when we arrived but when we left after 75minutes it was buzzing in a good way!

Unusual wines you don't see everywhere.

The room was EXTREMELY LOUD!!! It was very difficult to speak to or hear my wife and we were close together at quite a small table. Food overall was good when it arrived but we waited at least 45 minutes between the appetizers and main course.

The waiter finally explained they were backed up once I got his attention. My main course was a pasta that tasted wonderful but was way under cooked. Not al dente but actually chewy. I expect after the long wait the kitchen rushed it out.

The restaurant was only half full when we arrived at 5:30. This was a Tuesday evening so not sure what the problem was. I would give it another try but I’m not sure how you get past the fact that you can’t actually have a conversation with the person you are with.

‘Uber’ excellent all around - noise level hampered dialogue- must be the acoustics- all staff and our waitress Jesse genuine and professional - dishes, superb

Autostrada is a wonderful resto - excellent food, top service, great ambiance. I am always happy to have an evening there. Like so many restaurants today, it is pretty noisy, which may be a problem for some.

I left a message requesting for a bday dessert (or just writing happy birthday on the dessert) but didn’t end up getting it. Maybe it’s not an option at this restaurant I’m not sure. But our overall experience here was good. Food was amazing service was nice. Will still recommend it!

We were a party of 8 and enjoyed the booth by the window. The perfect spot and table. Everything we ordered was delicious! My favourite was the Agnolotti but all the pastas were excellent as were the appetizers.

My husband and I love this place. It was our go-to celebration spot when it was called Cinara, and we were thrilled to see that although the name changed, the staff and the chef and the amazing food are still there! We tried a bunch of different dishes and all were fantastic (OMG - you MUST try the risotto) and wine pairings were amazing. They were easily able to accommodate my gluten-free diet, and my husband still got his fill of fresh baked focaccia so a win for everyone. The service team are so knowledgeable about the food and the wine, and our only sadness was we got full and couldn't try everything on the menu :D Clearly, we'll just have to keep going back!

Food and service were excellent! Thoroughly enjoyable dinner and service was personal and on point. And prices were reasonable for a downtown restaurant. It’s a lively atmosphere so be prepared for having to talk louder or closer to your companion. Still I’d return in a heartbeat.

Great food. Relaxed bistro style atmosphere and excellent service.

Only draw back was the acoustics/noise level, my husband and I were opposite each other and had to shout to be heard. I had a sore throat from having to talk so loudly and repeat everything by the time we left! We were along the side by the window which may have been noisier than other areas.

The room was so loud we had to leave before finishing our second course. Our server did offer to move us but that wasn't really going to make a difference. I'm not sure if it is always that loud but certainly would not take a chance on returning. The food was fine but nothing outstanding.
