Alta Strada by James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Schlow was born from the simple wish to share great ingredients, honored flavors, and a warm welcome with neighbors and friends. Always expect housemade pasta, authentic Italian classics, and great reds (cocktails too)—all enjoyed in our dining rooms, patio spaces, or in the comfort of your own home. Located in the heart of Fairfax Virginia's bustling Mosaic District, with a spacious patio on the Strawberry Park green.

    The food was terrible! The Garlic bread was nothing special. All 3 entrees lacked seasoning and taste. None of us ate our whole entrees. Only 1 took it home and she was planning to try to add some taste to it when she did. The server was very good.

    All of the staff are very professional and helpful. The service was great and the food was amazing. Great variety of tasty dishes to choose from, fresh pastas and perfectly grilled steaks. Well curated and reasonable wine list.

    Our party of three dined on 4/13 to celebrate a nonagenarian's birthday. The staff, from manager Yosef, to our accommodating, super-friendly and excellent server Hera and just about every other staff, rolled out the red carpet to make this experience special, from a small offering of Prosecco to kick things off and a final, comped tiramisu, complete with a candle and the birthday song sung by several smiling servers and hosts. Cannot fail to mention the bday card, signed by the full staff. Amazing attention to every detail to make an occasion special for a first-timer at Alta Strada. The chicken parm was delish and enough for a small army; spaghetti AOP was graciously made to include asparagus that one of us had declined with the meal. Needless to say, we will be returning!

    We had been to the Alta Strada in DC and decided to give this one a try during a visit to Virginia. So glad we went, the whole experience was amazing!! The Manager/General Manager was an absolute pleasure, the staff was fantastic, the drinks were great and the food was delicious. Just go!! You will not be disappointed!

    Prices are way overpriced. You can tell the market up is really high when it cost $2.50 for the box of pasta at the store and you charge $29 for the a portion of it. Yes you have to take the labor into account but come on!!
