I wouldn't get adventurous with the menu though - stick to the pizza. The ambience is perfect with beautiful views of the lake if you can get a seat by the window. The food is fresh, but average to above average. Nothing fancy - just...More

We had a late lunch after seeing the sites in Chimney Rock. The service was prompt and the food was delicious. The only complaint is that the portions were huge! Enough for two meals. Delicious spaghetti and lasagna. Consider sharing if allowed. A definite stop!!!!

We ordered their Baked Lasagna and it was great! We were served garlic butter bread (like pizza dough balls) that was okay. The bread was somewhat HARD and hard for me to eat. I did however eat them all. The lasagna seemed as if it...More

La Strada is a romantic Italian restaurant overlooking beautiful Lake Lure. Come visit us and surround yourself with plush mountains and a picturesque lake while you dine on our elevated covered terrace. Lake Lure received its name because it was said that the scenery and peacefulness lured you back time after time. We hope our rich family traditions and vintage recipes will have the same affect. In 1974 La Strada opened the first of several locations in Charlotte, North Carolina. Starting as a small family business specializing in New York style brick oven pizza and traditional Italian cuisine; word quickly spread about the great food and La Strada became a Charlotte favorite. After over 35 years of serving great food in Charlotte, La Strada and the original family members came to Lake Lure with their family recipes offering one of the most varied and unique menus in the area. There’s something special for everyone!
