    We had the Tasting Menu and it was delicious. The Staff member was delightful. The Tiramisu dessert was light and tasty! The Barramundi was cooked nicely and had that crispy skin!

    We bought set menu option. We shared the food. Nice selection of starters and good choice of mains. We will come again but would ask for a table inside- it has that traditional Italian ambiance.

    Food is excellent, aesthetics woeful , cheap tables ,cheap chairs do not match food and price. Price would be fine if decor matched. No cushioning on seats.

    Food was delish. The only negative point was the noise coming from the kitchen. Cutlery being thrown, loud bags… ruined the atmosphere of the venue.

About the restaurant

Bellissimo Italian amongst the north shore burbs

Via Alta. It's the kind of restaurant that you will kill to have in your local burb. A friendly, welcoming spot that's open lunch and dinner, and absolutely nails boisterous memorable Italian cuisine. Yep, you definitely want this trattoria in your hood. Scan the big blackboard menu and begin the difficult task of choosing (good luck!): fritto misto of prawns and calamari, veal ossobucco with saffron and gremolata, baked baccala pie and crumbed and fried Milanese meatballs... the list goes on and on. In our opinion you shouldn't miss out on the meatballs, these bad boys are insanely irresistible and gobsmackingly good. Via Alta is the first bambino of Alessandro Pavoni (of the two hatted Ormeggio at the Spit) and Bill Drakopoulous (of Sydney's Restaurant Group and Aqua Restaurant Group) who joined forces to bring much needed Italiano life to the north shore dining scene….Bellissimo!

Best dish: mondeghini - crumbed and fried Milanese meatballs made with scotch fillet, mortadella and Italian pork sausage, piled into a tall metal cone lined with brown paper.
