I recently visited this branch of Strada and was warmly welcomed by Christian and the team. I had a table of 16 ladies and that can be a handful at the best of times. Overall the food was really good. There was a couple of...More

Visited with five friends on a quiet Thursday evening. The restaurant is quite spacious. We had drinks, starters, mains and coffee. Everyone really enjoyed the mains. The service was speedy. We would go again. Average prices.

Had pleasant lunch with two kids, one v picky, and we all enjoyed the food. Waitress helped choose and adapt options so that everyone was happy. She was v attentive and helpful . Cost around £45 which whilst not cheap seemed a fair price.

After a previous bad experience we thought we would give it a second chance. It did not disappoint. The basket of breads was a perfect starter followed by very good quality steaks and peppercorn sauce. Rounded off by excellent limoncellos. The waiting staff and manager...More
