“Lovely food - lovely staff”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Very busy italian restaurant in the centre of the beautiful city of York. The food was great. I'd never had Ravioli frittati (fried ravioli - starter) before and it was a very pleasant experience. The staff were very attentive and all in all, it was a perfect experience.

“Not As Good As The Menu Makes Out..”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

The service was very good but must say was a little disappointed withe the food. We went there because the kids recognised the brand and the menu looked very good. I'm glad they accepted the Gourmet Society Card as this saved 25% so it made it a bit better value. Won't be rushing back.

“Very baby friendly and warm service”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

The staff were very welcoming and went out of their way to accommodate us and our little one, even giving him a plate of baby friendly 'finger food' free of charge. I had the gnocchi on the specials menu, which was very good. The only downside was my husband's spaghetti bolognaise, which was a little lacking when it came to a decent amount of bolognaise. We would recommend - particularly for families with babies/young children.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I have visited Strada many times and always find the food consistently good. However, last Friday was my first visit to the Strada in York and I was sorely disappointed with the quality if the food. The green olives which are usually so tasty were bland and watery. I asked to change them for the mixed olives which the waitress did and she apologised. My husband ordered pizza and was happy with his choice and my brother and sister is law enjoyed their chicken burger and lamb shank. My risotto verdure however was tasteless; the rice was mushy and I could only eat a few mouthfuls. My mother in law couldn't eat her ravioli either, she said it wasn't as good as it usually is. This was disappointing as it was a birthday celebration. Our waitress was lovely though and sent out a birthday dessert for my father in law. The wait staff are fab, such a shame about the food.
