Food was fine. Nothing in particular to complain about. Waitress was lovely. Table next door were really noisy (not restaurants fault!) which did spoil the evening slightly as i couldnt hear my wife when she spoke. Would probably give them another try, maybe an offnight.

This restaurant appears to have vanished!! Closed up, no signage and some building supplies piled up. Very mysterious!

Took my niece here for lunch. All four of us enjoyed our food; from a burger to chicken Milanese. Puddings were excellent too. And we had a free bottle of wine - voucher downloaded from the Internet.

I can truthfully say, Strada is the closest you will come to having proper Italian food...without going to Italy...and I've been to Italy twice! The staff were friendly as always and really made you feel welcome. The fact there was a big group of us...More

Located in the Baddow Road close to Chelmsford’s shops and cafés, Strada boasts a superb heated courtyard garden ideal for al fresco dining all year round. This popular Italian restaurant chain is famous for its authentic handmade pizzas - which are cooked in a traditional forno a legna wood-fired oven – and its extensive menu of rustic, regional pastas and puddings are made using only the finest fresh ingredients such as Parma ham, extra virgin olive oil and Buffalo mozzarella imported from Italy. Perfect for business lunches and cosy evening meals, you can’t go wrong with Strada’s successful formula of simple, tasty food combined with sleek design, friendly service and a buzzy, down-to-earth atmosphere. The proof, as they say, is in the pizza.
