Always fun

A favorite haunt of ours for California Italian food. Many choices for other than red sauce dishes. Any dish with their signature lobster cream sauce is wonderful.

This is a place I eat pretty regularly for two reasons. One, the french bread is exceptional and it's keeps on coming. The second is I've never had a single bad meal here. I live in Long Beach and we eat out regularly. I usually go for the seafood pasta. Sometimes me and my wife share but if you're really... More

Located on 2nd street, La Strada provides delicious food for a very reasonable price. I recommend this place for any sort of party: single, couples, friends or family. Their seafood pasta has excellent sauce selections. The portions are very adequate. Their Italian decor gives you that homey feeling as if your eating dinner at your long lost Italian aunts house....

This is another great local spot, and when I am craving Italian its whee we go most of the time. We tried their pizza and whatever cheese they use makes it taste so yummy. Introduced it to my parents who are deep dish fans and every time they come down they want to get some! Like the sausage and peppers... More

We've tried several dishes here over time. The Chicken Piccata was a disappointment, too much vermouth in a sauce that wasn't cooked enough. Last night I had the Spaghetti and Meatballs, way too much tomato sauce with no distinctive flavor and meatballs that were dense and tasteless. My husband had the Carbonara, which had a sufficient amount of pancetta in... More

Really good California-Italian fare, lighter than the red sauce places. A favorite which we frequently enjoy. Parking can be an issue.

Found La Strada when a business associate and I were driving through and figured we could find something for lunch on Second Street. We felt fortunate to have such an enjoyable lunch.

I was searching in Belmont Shore for a very late night restaurant (it was 10:30 on a Monday) and although beginning to close up, Kelley invited me in for dinner at La Strada. I have always loved LaStrada--they are EXTREMELY reasonable in their pricing, the atmosphere is great (the red checkered table cloths, etc) and the quality of the Italian... More

If this restaurant weren't on 2nd Street, it wouldn't stand a chance of surviving for long. Don't get me wrong, though. It's nice enough to visit for a pleasant little meal, but it's not a place you'd seek out for dinner.

Beautiful little restaurant on 2nd Street. Family owned, and it shows. Warm, friendly service in a casual dining space. The food is fresh and perfectly prepared. We shared a caprese salad, which was plenty big enough for two. I then had the linguini pescadore- great variety of fresh seafood and perfectly cooked pasta, while my wife had one of their... More
