Molto Bene

We had a fabulous dinner. There were 20 of us. The service was great, not one meal was mixed up. The polenta is fluffy and soooo full of buttery flavor. I had the veal picata - Yum! My partner had the meat ravi and I mean loaded with meat - I took a bite. Sauted spinach just the way my... read more

We had Valentines Day Dinner here with friends. It was packed which tells me its popular. They were turning tables as fast as they could although we never felt rushed. I had Veal Piccata which was ok. One person had gnocci which he said tasted like dough balls. My husband had Veal Saltimbocca which he said was loaded with rosemary.... More

it has been a long time since i had been back to La Strada, probably before tripadvisor or yelp or google reviews were around. La Strada has survived the test of time by having longevity. i recall this location being Catfish Charley's before La Strada came along. i don't care for the entry where you enter and then do a...

I have been patronizing La Strada for over 17 years now - they are consistent, professional and the ambience is wonderful. Always a good choice of food, they have great specials and a steady menu. They always have a great choice of wines. They have a second La Strada in Napa in addition to La Revalucion near Hilltop Mall in... More

We have eaten at La Strada numerous times the past several years. Each time seems like the first time. The ambiance is warming and the service is superb. If you want the best Osso Bucco you've ever had, go on Friday nite. Most everything is served with their creamy polenta....yum! Their sister restaurant in American Canyon is just as good.... More

Te staff is really nice and the ambiance is good. we have been coming here for years, its everyone's favorite when it comes to Italian dining.

I've had cannelloni like this only once before. It is a house specialty here and is a total taste sensation. The service is excellent and everything else on the menu is also wonderful according to my companions. Try La Strada! You WILL NOT be disappointed!

This restaurant is at the end of strip mall but don't let that bother you. The food was amazing. We ended up going there twice during our 3 nights in san Pablo (the other night we were at a ballgame). First night I had the Pork Chop dinner, and it was spectacular. The mashed potatoes with cheese were richer than... More

This restaurant, in its quirky location, serves up some excellent food. Skip the ho-hum dinner salad and opt for the delicious, rustic minestrone or soup of the day (often cream of something). Every entree I've had has been great. Desserts are worth the splurge, too. Their polenta is wonderful, and any time they have risotto as a special, I order... More
