Sad but Carluccio's has returned in its place and is better. Strada needs to find a new home. Oxford remains woefully bereft of decent restaurants in its centre.

Went there on a Wednesday night as a party of 6. Wasn't our first choice but decided to give it a try. Unfortunately a huge party (20 or so) of University girls from some sort of sports club were there too. We were seated right next to them. We could not hear each other for the entire duration of our... More

In Oxford for the day midweek, we dropped into Strada for a quick lunch. Service was friendly, bright and efficient, although to be fair there were few other diners. The venue is fine, especially when seated near the front windows for people-watching! We started with bruschetta pomodora and funghi al forno - each good, although the latter maybe a little... More

Markedly average. We ate early evening (6pm on a Monday) so it was quite quiet. Whilst I can't say that the service was slow, I would worry about how they would cope when it was busy. We've been spoiled by eating more often at Branca (a 5-10 walk away from Strada) so I will tend to judge by those standards,... More

Food was average. My boyfriends chicken and spaghetti looked like a child's meal you would cook in your home oven, however my seafood risotto was quite tasty. Service was average. I would only return with a special offer deal coupon that they often email, as it's not worth the full price

I've been to Strada before and it was nothing special but this one in Jericho was brilliant. Miro went above and beyond to make sure we were happy - i was being a pain and really craved carbonara but it wasnt on the menu but he went and asked anyway and they made it for me. The food was brilliant,... More

One can get a bit tired of chains like Strada and Cafe Rouge, but this is one of the better ones. Good service, nice decor, a buzzy atmosphere and the standard menu done rather well.

We visited here March 2013 with my family and friends. We all had pizzas and my little one had kids pasta dish. My husband enjoyed his pizza Caprino. I had pizza Prosciutto e verde. In my honest opinion, since this place was recommended by our Italian friends, I did expect to have more from it. More than average pizza in... More

I've enjoyed Strada before but not visited for a while. Today, seven of us arrived to sample the menu. Helpful staff seated us quickly. Drinks arrived swiftly. I ordered the Pollo Funghi with a Tricolore as a side salad. Well-presented. Delicious chicken with a light Funghi sauce; butter-fried potatoes with onions, rocket garnish. Tricolore traditional with home-sliced generous portions of... More
