We love La Strada for football viewing and food. The pizza is amazing. Their crust is flavorful and the toppings are fresh. The calamari was cooked perfectly and was very tender. The Italian Nachos are out of this world! Definitely a favorite.

We had a group of nine who choose this place to enjoy some food and company. We enjoyed our company but the service fell flat. The server was obviously "confused". While she returned to our table twice to clarify the order, she fumbled it badly...More

Delicious food- beautiful view. We were lucky enough to have nice weather enabling us to eat outside. We never got the bread that came with our meal until we were almost finished, hence the four stars. I think this was just a "glitch" and not...More

You can make reservations for a large party but call ahead. I am not sure about splitting the bill for so large a group.

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!
