You know what you're getting with a chain Italian. The food was good, decent portion sizes (bar the dessert, which was stingy) and the service friendly.

The food was great , arrived piping hot and the portions were large. My starter was sufficient for 2 people. There was a wide choice of menu for starters, mains and desserts. The service was excellent and staff friendly and helpful. I would well recommend a visit .

We had a party of 8 for a friends 40th. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. The food was very good for this type of chain of restaurants (I'd never been to a Strada before).

The starters were very generous. We weren't put under any pressure to leave our table and the evening flew past.

The drinks were kept nicely topped up without nagging from us. We had a cake for the birthday girl and they served that up with no trouble what so ever. They also kept serving water as well as the paid for drinks.

If you want a relaxed atmosphere to spend with friends and with good food, you can't go far wrong with this venue.

They also allowed for the table to be decorated before we arrived to help celebrate the birthday.

My other half and I missed valentines day due to working and decided to pop out to Strada for the evening. There was a gentleman singing which set a lovely romantic soft evening. The staff were amazing, they talked with us and saw we had everything we needed. Value for money was also reasonable.

We will both defiantly be returning and have since.
