Description: Located opposite the Canterbury Cathedral, Strada attracts an eclectic mix of local pizza lovers and hungry visitors from out of town. 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.

We have eaten here on a number of occasions and have rarely had a disappointing meal. The menu is good and the food well prepared and tasty. On this latest visit my sea bass was very good and my husband's chicken with parma ham also greatly enjoyed. The staff are efficient and friendly and make you feel welcome. If in... More

Having had a thoroughly disappointing experience at the Cathedral ( Quire closed for 4 hours in the middle of the day) we cheered ourselves up with lunch at the Strada, just opposite the Cathedral gates. Excellent service and delicious Italian food. Delightful, smily Polish waitress... nothing was too much trouble!

All three meals were, in everyone's opinion, bland. Appeared total lack of seasoning plus meals were not exactly oversized with a distinct lack of seafood on one dish. Mussels on another were minute and barely worth opening. Service from young male waiter (student?) was attentive and nothing was too much trouble which helped to make the occasion a little better...

The food was very good but the service was slow and not well organised. Our glass off fizz came half way through the starter, and the wine came halfway through the main course - and I had seen the drinks on the tray sitting at the bar just being ignored. When I spoke to the barman he hadn't a clue.... More

We walked out of the Precincts through the Norman built Christ Church Gate and crossed the street to Strada. Service was top-notch, our meals were delicious - I had a delicious spaghetti Bolognese while my partner had the risotto frutti di mare - a seafood dish of mussels, prawns, squid, etc. I am still dreaming about the dessert I chose...

Ate here Saturday 27/9/14 as a foursome, booked for 8.00pm .Food was good , service was good ,atmosphere good at start, but menu was limited in our opinion. Also the place was empty by 10.15 pm. This felt strange and made us feel we needed to finish our drinks and visit nearest pub. Its very near cathedral so location good.... More

I've eaten here a couple of times before and the food is always top notch, flavoursome and good quality. We ordered pizzas the last time we went and they were gorgeous. The service was very good with lots of chat and smiles from the waitress. I will definitely go back. Prices are decent considering the lovely food.
