Having Alta Vita back in their original pre-flood location was a nice milestone for High River. The food is always good and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Now they have the pub and restaurant both open. Been there a couple times recently for both lunch and dinner and am never disappointed, always a pleasure eating at Alta Vita.

I am writing to express my dissatisfaction and disappointment with our dinner service on June 27th, 2014. I found the Restaurant Alta Vita Ristorante on urban spoon .com and it received an 81% approval rating. It also stated that it was kid friendly, which was important as I have a 2 year old. The reason for our family's visit to... More

This restaurant has recently reopened after the flood last year and has changed to a restaurant and pub. We were a bit hesitant to try it but so glad we did. The food is still great - steak was cooked to perfection and an amazing mixed salad as well. They have completely redone the inside and it is very nice... More

Today is June 20, 2014 - the one year anniversary of the flood in High River. The town is remembering and commemorating this day and so we went out for a nice lunch on a patio (so we thought). We knew that Alta Vita is not known for it's stellar service, but that the food was pretty good. Well today... More

My wife and I like to go out often to eat dinner and we heard some mixed reviews on this place so we thought we try it for ourselves and see. The waitress was very nice and her service was good. But the problems were with the food. My wife's salad was more brown then green and tasted sandy like... More

The greens in the salad were not fresh, the table was not wiped clean and it felt as though there was no pride in the place. Hopefully the move to their new and renovated location will bring back the great food and care they once had.

We went here on the recommendation of the hotel receptionist. We'd already checked it out online and it looked OK. We both ordered the special and whilst my husband loved his, I found parts of my steak were fatty and gristly. It was covered with gravy so not obvious at first. There was only one other group in at the... More

Great place for a business lunch, a bit on the slow paced side of a business lunch, but it will give you more time to know your client. All food is prepared fresh and very tastey, try the Tomato soup! Closed on Mondays Yum Yum

There was a group of 8 of us that went here for dinner and it was fantastic. The decore is very warm and welcoming and the service was fantastic. I had the chicken under a brick and it was really good. The vegies were perfectly done. My other side dish was fresh green beans wraped in prosciuttoand again this was... More
