We used to go to a Strada years ago but it closed down, as we were having family day out in Cambridge I thought my husband would enjoy visiting his old favourite. Sadly not. 3 out of the 7 meals were sent back, lumpy sticky pasta and a carbonara that was the least carbonara-like dish I've ever seen! We are... More

We used to go to this branch of Strada in Cambridge all the time, and the staff knew us. Sadly, it has gone down hill in the past year, with new staff and poorer food. We decided to give it another try today, but unfortunately had to wait about 45 minutes for two pizzas and a burger. When the food... More

Had lunch on a Saturday around 1pm. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. We ate from the value menu with two courses for £10.95. The whitebait was delicious and fresh. The pizza (strangely called a pizzette if memory serves me right) was one of the best I have tasted in recent times. Even the house rose was very acceptable.... More

The restaurant looked nice from the outside so we planned a dinner out. I ordered a tomato bruschetta which was basically a slice of bread and some tasteless tomatoes. The pizza was just bread with some pieces of cheese and meat here and there. The wine was warm. There are much better options in Cambridge.

Thankfully plenty of tables available as we turned up without a booking. Service was excellent throughout, very attentive yet unobtrusive. Pre-mains, we shared garlic, Italian bread and a portion of squid. Easily changed one of the pasta type dishes to have spaghetti. Other choices were pizza, burger and risotto - all were hot and plentiful, with good portion sizes. Overall... More
