Description: Located on Water Lane in the centre of Wilmslow’s chic shopping district, Strada is a top spot for post-purchase snacks and leisurely lattes. 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.

“Reliable franchise for Italian food”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

OK atmosphere, willing waitresses, manager takes an interest in customers. Menu average Italian, good taste but a little mean on ingredients (e.g. 4 prawns and some fragments of crab meat in the seafood risotto). They say it's centrally prescribed. Overall satisfactory, bearing in mind that most of the time some discounts can be had via the Internet.

“Great service for a large party”
Reviewed 28 June 2011

We booked for a large group to celebrate a special occasion. From the time of our first enquiry the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient - on the phone, by email and eventually in person when we arrived on the night. It was suggested that we choose our food in advance so that everyone could be served promptly and we were sent menus and a pre-order form which made this easy.
We arrived early but everything was ready for us and we were all made very welcome. The food was excellent and, as promised, all 16 diners received their plates at the same time for all three courses. Special requests and extra orders were no problem at all and the staff were good humoured and friendly all evening. The service was perfectly pitched; staff were there when we needed them (we never had to wait to ask for extra drinks etc) but not intrusive.
Thanks to Strada Wilmslow for ensuring our evening went so well and that everyone had such a great time.

“Can't cook a steak”
Reviewed 20 June 2011

We ordered two steaks one medium rare and one well done
I always tell the waiter Tell the chef I'm sorry but please cook well done
We sent the well done back after my wife started her meal and cut into the steak to find it was rare and bloody
We returned both steaks and left

“Rude Staff”
Reviewed 28 November 2010

Went recently and found the staff very rude, didn't make our experience there comfortable and long wait for food. Food is just ok, typically chain restaurant but they need to treat their customers politely, Wilmslow is a small town and a lot of restaurants competing for business. Unfriendly waiting staff are a big NO NO!
