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.

We met as friends for a midweek meal. It was a shame that the restaurant was understaffed, just one waitress for the whole restaurant! Service was therefore slow. Our starter plates were not cleared away before the main meal was served, one of us had to wait a further 10 minutes before their mains were ready. The pasta and chicken... More

We haven't eaten here for years after a similar experience and had high expectations based on recent reviews. How wrong we were especially as the warning signs were obvious from early on! The 5 of us arrived at 7.15 on a Wednesday evening when the restaurant was only half full. After half an hour and only because we waved one... More

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 were professional, friendly and attentive.

I have been to this Strada many times and had excellent food and good service. A friend and I went in this evening (Friday) for dinner as it was the only restaurant in harpenden with tables available (That should have been the first sign). I ordered the same thing I order every time, the seafood risotto. The wait wasn't too... More

Started with crispy squid. Well prepared but very small portion. Prawn linguini were way to salty and spicy (hot). No chance to enjoy the flavor of prawns, mussels and pasta. Service was very good.
