We left the arena and this place had space. Good value because the kids ate for a quid. Their pizza was fine and thecrest of their menu was good. I had the crab linguine which was very nice. The crab tasted fresh. All in all a very pleasant experience.

Honestly, I haven't been to a Strada in years. On Saturday, we went given we were in a large group and no one could agree what to eat. I was truly blown away. The service was impeccable (especially Giorgia, who made us feel like nothing was too much trouble). I expected the usual dull pizza/ pasta combos, but the food... More

Don't really get why waiters use Iphones to take orders. Looks VERY unprofessional. Food and service okay.

Everything is this restaurant is 'moderate': the food, the amosphere, the service. There are so many very good restaurants in Birmingham, so this one will probably not be on top of my list to go back to, next time I visit this great city.

2 course lunch plus bread and olives to share. Avocado starter was lovely and spaghetti pomodore good size and flavoursome Only 1 criticism the starter came before we'd really got stuck into the olives.

Visited for the first time on Thursday, a nice restaurant setting and it was quiet. Customer service was fantastic, seated promptly and we didn't have to wait long for the food. The food is also value for money and authentic!
