Giant Chicken Parm
roasted romanesco and delicata squash
Wonderful meal enjoyed in the outdoor seating. Chef Patrick never disappoints.
I had indicated that we were sharing two birthdays, but only one dessert was brought out with a candle. Not a big deal, but I mentioned it 3 times; when I made the reservation, when we sat down and when ordering the desserts. Only real glitch in the celebration. The food was very good.
Outstanding service and food. Outside dining is well done and safe
Nice experience, food was very good and nice sized portions. Service was a bit slow as the server was also making drinks at the bar. (We were not sitting at the bar). They also did not serve bread with the meal , which they said they had not done since COVID, not sure how that ties together since they sold garlic bread. Would definitely go back again.
Our experience at Alta Strada was so great! The octopus appetizer was incredible- so tasty. The caprese (buratta) was also very good. The pass the cranberry and spritz cocktails were great! The sangria was decent but in my opinion too small of a serving, tons of ice. Our entrees were rigatoni a la vodka and baked ziti, both very yummy. Tiramisu was yummy, I am not a cannolli person but my brother liked them. Our service was excellent, Evan was great!! Would definitely come back.
Good food, great location (especially the outdoor area!) and great wine! Would recommend
Was excellent — great food and good SD
Outdoor space was somewhat of an issue as folks wondering close without masks
Awful service, very bland food, manager didn’t hardly do anything.
We have eaten here a few times and it is always fabulous. Food, service, wine, and overall experience doesn't disappoint.
Food was very good and service was excellent. Restaurant Week choices very excellent with large orations.
The pros: yummy cocktails, lovely patio, social distancing guidelines in force.
The cons: Mediocre food, MIA server who never inquired if our food was satisfactory, dirty restrooms. My Cacio e Pepe was nothing more than over cooked spaghetti doused in Parmesan and some pepper - the worst I have tasted.
Summer restaurant week
A great dining experience. Superb service and a gourmet meal to top it off! I have not been for a while and I wonders why? We won’t wait so long next time.
Went her for restaurant week, outdoor dining available and comfortable. Appreciated the warning when the reservation was made that outdoor tables are in the sun in the afternoon. Trsut them. Very sunny. Burratta app was the winner of the day. Ceasar salad was tasty and perfectly dressed. Service was good. Everything seemed clean and like they were following protocol. Heard one table ask to move the table to avoid the sun and they were promptly, but kindly, told no. Good job, Alta Strada!
Enjoyed. Covid days so limited menu. We went simple and the food was good, for the local area, a real nice option. Would eat there again no doubt. Rigatoni was spot on
Food was fantastic. Service was beyond awful. Took a VERY long time to receive drinks and really any service. Our server never delivered our food or even checked on us. Food was amazing. Drinks and service ... awful.
Great food and the staff was attentive. Will be back.
Excellent outdoor dining experience! Great service and great food.
Went there in the afternoon with a couple of classmates and the end of our semester! The food took a little longer than expected, but when the food came it looked very delectable! The pasta salad was so good, I think it was better than the sandwich I ordered! It was very quiet in the afternoon, and all of the people working there were very polite. They asked us repeatedly if everything was okay,but not in an overwhelming way. I believe all my classmates and I really enjoyed the food and service!
We went in for two of my triplets 17th birthday the food (very good) and service (excellent). Furthermore they immediately recognized my kids birthday upon arrival and also wished them happy birthday.
From a Covid perspective they also had great table spacing and all staff wearing masks and gloves that I saw. I'd definitely go back!
There was no AC inside on a hot summer day.
Hello and thank you for your positive review in regards to food, service, and value! We were struggling with our AC the past two weeks and thankfully after closing down for repairs twice for lunch earlier week we have made the repairs! We are so happy to report it is once again cool inside :) We hope to see you again soon! -Bethany
Great food on a small and limited menu. Service was fantastic!
The service was excellent and the staff was incredibly friendly. The food was to die for and the gelato was orgasmic. The baked ziti was Magnificent and so was the salmon. Spaghetti sauce was spectacular. Overall, my experience was remarkable and I would definitely return. I cannot wait for my next experience at Alta Strada. I could bathe daily in the gelato.
This used to be my favorite restaurant, but the menu has changed taking off two of my favorites, the tagliatelle pasta and the ricotta appetizer. We were told complimentary bread was no longer provide due to sanitary reasons but we could buy garlic bread if we wanted it. Service was the worst I’ve experienced in three years there. Had to ask for our water to be filled up and then the waiter forgot. Desserts were also substandard.
Food was great, the service was outstanding. Everyone was so friendly. I will probably visit next weekend.
Love! Great food and great service. Always a great experience.
The food was great. Mushroom Pasta and the giant Chicken Parm (I ate off it for three meals!) . Under these surreal conditions, it was nice to get out and have a meal. The staff took all precautions and I felt safe dining there and felt I respected the server and staff's safety. The service was fantastic. Please safely support our local restaurants and the restaurant industry!
The service is very sub par. We used to come here all the time but since the pandemic it’s seriously gone down hill, like they just don’t care. They should work to improve this, especially now. Waited a while for the host to greet us and she seemed bothered and looked unprofessional. Server also had an attitude. Asked me if I wanted anything besides water three times. I had informed her the first time that I was sticking with water. Food was good, it used to be better. Did not see the tagliatelle on the menu either.
The food is very good here. Their cacio e pepe is awesome. Our waitress was super friendly and efficient. My only complaint is that we had to wait quite a while for someone to come to our table. It became obvious that our waitress was busy, but the hostess or one of the other staff (there were a couple of them milling about) could have come to our table earlier and given us water and taken our drink order.
Great food, service, and setting!
My friend and I really liked the prosciutto appetizer. And my mushroom pizza was very good with a crust that was sturdy all the way through.
The food was good, although the menu somewhat limited. We had to rush through our dinner because of an approaching thunderstorm, which obviously the restaurant had no control over. The general outdoor area was quite busy with passersby. Hope to try this restaurant again in the future.
We love Alta Strada, so we were very excited to visit once they re-opened their outdoor patio after previously being closed due to COVID. Not only was the food as delicious as we remembered, but we were incredibly impressed at how well they adhered to social distancing guidelines: tables 6ft apart, all employees wearing masks & gloves, plus they required sanitizing our hands and wiping down of our table prior to dining. Outstanding service, delicious food, and a care for their patrons - what isn't to like?
We sat outside and the manager was very gracious. There were no tables in the shade and he was kind enough to move us when a table became available even though our food had already come to the table.
Enjoyed a great lunch outside with a friend!
under the new normal of covid 19 dining out experience, they are doing great. hope they can keep up and do well.
Had a nice lunch with friends—wait staff and host were so kind! Food was great—service was a bit slow but it was explained to us why and it was fine. Enjoyed just sitting drinking our drinks! Thank you!
Great food, great service and well respected social distancing/cleanliness.
We were seated outside which was nice because the weather was perfect, we are promptly greeted, I did not catch his name but he also was the host and the waiter. He was very hospitable and had a good suggestion for wine. Food came out in a timely manner and was delicious very fresh. We will definitely be back for dinner.
