Via Alta provides a wonderful taste of Italy. Inventive dishes we especially enjoyed the trout which was cooked in a paper parcel along with mussels and various Mediterranean flavours. Always a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the busy buzz of Saturday evening diners.
Grazie mille! So happy to hear that you enjoyed your meal! The Ocean Trout Cartoccio is one of my favourites too! We hope to see you again very soon.

This is my favourite Italian restaurant hands down. We have tried the whole menu and their pastas are a must try, prawn, slow roast pork and desserts (all were good esp their apple pie cake) are also delicious. Staff is also very friendly
Grazie Mille! We are so pleased you enjoyed dining with us. I will certainly pass on your notes to the chef and team, as they would love to hear. We hope to see you again soon.

About Via Alta

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.
