When we walked past it seemed diners were relaxed and really enjoying their meals. We were not intending to stop here but are very glad we did. We asked for a table right were the restaurant opens to the sidewalk. It was a beautiful night and a nice breeze. The servers were very attentive and we had our drinks quickly.... More

The intimacy of La Strada is equal to the service and food, thank goodness for us locals! Our server (so sorry I am blanking on his name) was extremely attentive and sincere..not just a 'checker backer'. There on Saturday and while the bars around 2nd Street were typically noisy, traffic in La Strada was not overly busy at 6:30PM and... More

We always take our visitors to this restaurant. Everything we have tried is great. As I have a shrimp allergy, they are great about substitutions for me. Lisa, the owner, always makes you feel like her personal guest. It can be a little noisy, but worth putting up with. Has out door seating, but limited.

We stopped here for dinner on trip advisor recommendations. Tuesday night they have a nice specials menu. My husband has spaghetti and meatballs $7. Sauce was good but light on the pasta. Daughter had the chicken lasagna $7 and said it was out of this world. I had the meat lasagna and it was quite tasty. $12. Good dinner.

This lovely restaurant is only a few blocks from the beach and part of a long street of cafes, coffee shops, boutiques and such and connected to charming residential neighborhoods. Our party of five arrived at opening time (11:30) for a birthday lunch. In addition to the menu, the waitstaff and ambience could not have been better. Our meal choices... More

Ok, I bought a Groupon to try this place out. Called ahead for reservations for Sunday evenings but told they only take them for groups of 6 or more. I ventured there at 6:30 pm and got a table right away right on the sidewalk. We brought our own bottle of champagne and paid the $10 cork fee. I ordered... More

A good neighborhood hangout for fresh Italian style food--but not heavy on the red sauce type fare. Good service, too.

If you're craving Italian and looking for a menu packed with good home cooking, try La Strada. Everyone from the host to the waitress was really nice and happy to answer questions/make recommendations. Menu offered a lot of variety. Highlight of the meal: The Caprese salad had the best mozzarella cheese I've ever tasted!
