Alta Strada

Alta Strada

92 Central St., Wellesley, MA 02482

Owned and operated by chef Michael Schlow, Alta Strada is the more casual sister restaurant to his formal downtown eatery, Via Matta. Schlow envisioned Alta Strada as a relaxed neighborhood gathering spot, an atmosphere that is achieved through the restaurant’s exposed brick, simple wooden furniture, and bustling open kitchen. The cuisine is a slightly upscale take on classic Italian fare, including pasta dishes like mushroom-filled lune with truffle oil and Parmigiano and entrées such as roasted chicken with oven-dried tomatoes, zucchini, and black olives. The all-Italian wine list is well priced and purposefully approachable.
