I have been here more times than I would like to reveal. I used to come here almost weekly. The service and food is hit or miss. Its quite cute inside, they have a nice bar and open kitchen. The market downstairs is great. I am not a huge pasta fan but definitely think that is what is best here. People rave about the mushroom filled lune and the Grandma's eggplant can be quite good. I have had some really horrible service here- just plain rude and unattentive for an high end restaurant. Other times the service has been great. None of their fish dishes have been particularly spectacular for me. In the end, I think I have come to the conclusion that this amount of money is better spent at a better restaurant in Boston or Cambridge.

there is nothing else like it in the burbs. pastas are sublime, salads that you can appreciate each vegetable because it's not overdressed. cool italian, but not cliche. food is unbelievable and consistent.

Coming from a Wellesley native, Alta Strada is by far the best restaurant in the town. The menu offers uniquely authentic Italian cuisine with Mediterranean flair. Some of the best entrees include the cheese raviolis, pizza, and grilled chicken plus the appetizers are awesome. Also has a take-out station in the back. Overall great place to sit down and eat dinner or grab a quick bite.

I was just disappointed by my experience here. I have been to other Michael Schlow establishments and have had great meals. Nothing was bad about Alta Strata... it's just nothing was that great. The orders are small, food was just average at best and the service was mediocre. The best part of the meal was the decor, it's a great room. I was impressed with the market downstairs, seemed like they had some good food for takout.

great place for lunch and dinner, especially if you like to share the small bites, fresh house made pasta, local ingredients, tasty salads.
