Good food and quick service

I went there twice for lunch and would recommend it. It doesn't have a chain restaurant feeling to it. The service was fast and efficient. The food was v ery good: I had a pizza the first day (delicious, generous topping), then pasta. Good value. I would come back.

Always busy and I don't know why. Chain food and chain prices. Ok if in a hurry and feeling bland. I wouldn't return as much better places nearby.

Although the restaurant was busy, the staff managed to keep on top of things and we were served quickly and efficiently. The food was good - nothing to make it stand out from the crowd, but perfectly fine. A good standby for the area.

Not a bad experience - just exactly the same as all the other Strada's i've visted in the past - in Chiswick, Reading, Baker St, etc, etc.... Decent value & good food, just nothing exceptional! Will probably visit the chain again however!

Having eaten at Strada restaurants before (Exeter and Canterbury) and never regretted it, we thought this would be a good choice for a quick pre-show dinner. The restaurant was packed but the nice, but harassed looking staff did find a table for us. What puzzled us was that the food (pizza and chicken breast) arrived at pretty low temperature. If...

Good selection and prices very reasonable for the centre of London. We came upon this by chance. Italian food served very fresh and hot. Parmesan grated over pasta had not had that before.

As with some other reviewers, generally try to avoid chain restaurants, but make an exception for Strada (& Cote, come to think of it!). Had dinner here late-ish on Sunday 9th Dec - restaurant very quiet - food very good, service efficient, polite & charming - which I have also let them know via the feedback address on the card...

Just got back home after seeing an excellent show. The meal we had before the show was also very good. My cold pasta had to be changed to a new plate of Penne, I was very pleased because the problem was resolved immediately. The service was excellent and the price of 2 meals with drinks and coffees was very reasonable
