Wonderful dining experience!

We enjoyed an excellent meal at Strada Facenda, with personal service from the moment we entered. Even the chef and sommelier visited our table for orders and advice. The award-winning lasagne didn't disappoint, neither did the branzino and extensive wine list.

We were taken to this restaurant by our guide. It is next to a petrol station and in an unassuming building on a busy road. Unless you know about it you would drive straight by. We were a party of 9 and had the good fortune to have such a fabulous lunch. The chef won best lasagna in Italy for... More

I decided to try this place out after searching good reviews and delighted to discover that the food is ever bit as excellent as the other recommendations. We heard about Chef Emilio Barbieri and we were very happy with the food and the friendly but polte service of M.Casagranda. Madame Roncetti was a great somelier and recommended wonderful wine ....

of course the food and the service are excellent. it is, after all, a michelin-star restaurant. what i loved most of all was the journey on which the chef, Emilio Barbieri, takes you. a journey through flavours, textures, colours, smells and shapes, that is what makes the food so unique. you could tell how much thought and work went into...

We ordered the Strada Facendo tasting menu with a bottle of Lambrusco. It was a mixture of seafood and land dishes and it was incredible. There was a soup with an oyster, a platter of different fish tartars, a lovely glass with some sort of avocado salad with lobster, then another tartar (not sure what kind of meat but it... More

Food was excellent. Price was reasonable. I am not even going to bother you with the details, except one. Those who tried a work lunch in a michelin starred resto know that the price of the menu ends up being very far from what you actually pay as drinks and coffee will easily jack the bill up +€10-20. Not here.... More

The service at this restaurant is excellent. Really enjoy the husband/wife team as chef and sommelier. Food was very good, but not as good as I remembered it a few years back....maybe just the choice of dishes this time. All that said, one can find a great Italian meal in this area and walk out with a much smaller check,... More
