Venue Info

Chef Michael Schlow (Casolare, Conosci) cooks Italian food on the premise that less is more. That's why you'll find simple and unfussy dishes like tagliatelle bolognese, thin-crust pizza margherita, and crunchy meatballs in tomato basil sauce at Alta Strada, whose DC location is one of a few across the East Coast. The intimate trattoria is a cozy spot for familiar Italian food, complete with desserts like Mascarporeos, an Oreo-like concoction of chocolate shortbread and mascarpone cream.
