Ate here early evening before a show at Symphony Hall. The food was lovely! I had a really tasty chicken Caesar Salad and my friend had the Seafood Risotto which she said was delicious. We both had desserts, Tiramisu and Cheesecake, again very tasty. We shared a bottle of the House White Wine which was great too. Very good service... More

Following less than impressive service at the other Strada in Birmingham we tried the Mailbox restaurant. The service was excellent with our young waitress deserving great credit for her work. The food too was impressive. This visit has restored my confidence in Strada. We will go again.

I booked a table of 10 as I was taking my team out from work. The staff were great, I pre-ordered the pizzas that we wanted before hand. The restaurant was busy as they do a Pizza for £5 on a Monday night

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

We ordered some drinks which included a jug of water in addition to wine and Cider. The drinks arrived but no water,... More
