This is the kind of restaurant you wish was in your own neighborhood. Reliably good "light" Italian fare, decent wines and good service.

After work we had to find a quick meal to go over paperwork. I had heard about this small American-style Italian restaurant and decided to give it a try. Busy and friendly, the staff did a good job getting our order and giving suggestions. The food was good, fresh and basic. More American than Italian...but done well. Not the place... More

We love this restaurant not just because of the delicious food, but because of the intimate yet family friendly atmosphere. Lovely. The favorites are the salmon alla Ruffino, lasagna, and the caprese salad. Just a relaxing, comfortable place to sit back, sip wine and eat wonderful Italian food. Cheers!

This place is good. They will gladly find out what ingredients are in certain dishes and will leave out allergens when possible. Not many places will make a white sauce for you that does not have chicken broth in it, which likely means they make their sauces fresh for each meal. While the inside is a little odd...the owner seems... More

a cute little busy place on 2nd street, large menu with a good selection prices are a little high for the quality of food, don't bother getting a house salad with your entree, it's not very good there are better places for italian food in LB but La Strada does have a certain charm, it's not bad but it's great...

had some nice penne w chicken, sausage - was tasty. though I'm always amazed at the high prices on basic pasta dish. Side salad basic classic (which I find boring but my dining mates liked) Italian but excellent dressing, which I actually very much care about. Friendly service. On 2nd street which is nice to stroll and go window shopping.

My husband and I have been frequenting this gem of an eatery on 2nd Street in Belmont Shore for the past two years. Some of their menu items have become our favorites. We like to sit on their outside balcony and sip proseco on a warm Sunday afternoon and order their scampi shrimp in lobster cream sauce appetizer (Yum! Yum!).... More
