The food was amazing! We had mozarella sticks, garlic rolls, chicken parmesan, lasagna, cheese manicotti, and a kids hot dog. All the food was perfect. Had Maggie as our server and she was great!

I've been here a few times while vacationing in Lake Lure. The food is reliably good. The prices depend on what you order. We have had excellent sit-down meals, as well as wonderful take-out pizza. La Strada never disappoints.

Easily seated my family of 5 and everyone was happy with the menu options. This place can draw a crowd, since it's across the street from the beach on Lure, but went above what you expect to find during high season at the lake. Excellent...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!
