We’re honestly not big casino people.  Of course we like nice restaurants and fun night clubs, but we’re just not into gambling.  So going to the casino is not on the top of our priority list, unless we have a good reason to!

Well… the right opportunity presented itself and we took a drive up to MGM Foxwoods at Mohegan Sun for the Zucchero concert (our favorite Italian singer and band).  The show was on a Sunday night at 6 PM, so it made dinner a bit tricky since all the restaurants don’t open until 5:00 PM on Sunday.  Weird, right?  So I made a reservation at Alta Strada for the two of us at 5:00 on the dot and we quickly enjoyed some yummy eats.

Since we didn’t have a whole lot of time (and the fact that we were starving), we decided to get an app and a pizza.  The food was delicious and we were certainly not disappointed.  For an app, we decided to have the Crunchy Veal Meatballs with Spicy Tomato-Basil Sauce.  The meatballs were perfectly cooked and so juicy.  And the sauce… a home run.  So fresh and tasty with just the right amount of kick.

We look forward to checking out Alta Strada again!  And next time, not when we’re rushing through the meal.
