I recently visited this branch of Strada and was warmly welcomed by Christian and the team. I had a table of 16 ladies and that can be a handful at the best of times. Overall the food was really good. There was a couple of meals which didn't quite hit the mark, but I was so impressed with the way the staff handled this, that it didn't taint our evening at all. We were well looked after and I was made to feel extra special for my birthday meal. A big thank you to Christian and the team for the lovely extras and attention we were given as a party. See you down the pub next time! :)

Not quite sure what has happened to Strada, we have visited 4 times in total the first 2 were brilliant and the last 2 not any near that standard. The restaurant only had 5 other tables for a Friday night. The waiters and waitresses took forever to take our drinks and then deliver them. The food is nothing special either, it's overpriced for what is given. Won't be back anytime soon, shame.

Went for Sunday lunch, starters of dough balls and fried rice balls were quite nice but the three different pizzas we ordered were quite bland. Not a huge choice of toppings to choose from which was disappointing. The restaurant was not over busy, there were three members of staff excluding the cooks but only one was actually serving. Our server was nice enough but twice I had to leave the table in search of someone to deal with us. We thought we would give this restaurant a go but will not be in a rush to visit again. All in all disappointing and not worth the money.

Visited with five friends on a quiet Thursday evening. The restaurant is quite spacious. We had drinks, starters, mains and coffee. Everyone really enjoyed the mains. The service was speedy. We would go again. Average prices.

Hadn't been for a while and popped in for lunch. Ordered the pork with 'crushed' potatoes which were so watery they were more like smash (For those old enough to remember ) and the chicken in a mushroom sauce with rosemary potatoes which was so garlicky I couldn't eat it all). Service was good though. Won't be back.
