The ultimate neighborhood restaurant, as envisioned by chef and restaurateur Michael Schlow, Alta Strada, has been an instant hit in Wellesley. Whether nibbling on small plates at the antipasti-wine bar, sipping an espresso, or having a meal in the open dining room, diners find the menu approachable and accessible (and reasonably priced). Pulling from the culinary traditions of Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna, Piedmont, and the Amalfi Coast, Alta Strada is the go-to spot for the perfectly made bowl of pasta, crispy thin pizza, gorgeous and abundant antipasti, and fantastic wines.

Though the restaurant opened in 2007, it felt like an old favorite right from the beginning - a bright, fresh and very current old favorite, that is - a little stripped down and uncluttered, with great food and a relaxed, completely easy-going environment. For busy suburbanites, there's also a fantastic market on the lower lever so guests can pop in and pick up something to enjoy at home if that suits their mood.
