Wood-fired meatballs smothered with roasted tomato sauce and parmigiana cheese. Roasted octopus embellished with garlic aioli and salsa verde. Fresh burrata paired with roasted beets and pear mostarda. Even the appetizers at Alla Vita are a cut above what you might expect at a traditional Italian eatery. This upscale trattoria takes classic Italian dishes and elevates them to the standards of a modern-day foodie.
So reserve a table, sit down with a friend or significant other, and embark on a culinary journey. Start with a glass of fine wine and a few of the opulent antipasti, then share a plate of pasta or a pizza. The tagliatelle comes smothered with beef shank ragu and pecorino, while the mushroom pizza features black truffles with caramelized onion and taleggio. If you’re still hungry enough to enjoy an entree, try the signature lasagna with wild mushrooms and fontina cheese or the roasted bone-in ribeye steak, prepared simply with roasted garlic, fresh rosemary, and a drizzle of olive oil. Complement the main course with crispy potatoes tossed in salsa verde or roasted broccolini paired with preserved lemon and garlic.
