Authentic Italian Lunch

After a trip the The Maritime Aquarium with 3 adults and 5 children we walked the short way to Strada 18. A table (excellently covered in drawing paper with crayons provided!) was acquired and menus perused. The fayre on offer was typical Italian with a great range of pizzas and pasta in various... read more

We went to Strada 18 on a Saturday night. First hiccup was that they messed up our reservation. We had a reservation for 5 people, which they admitted, but said that, 'someone had changed it to two.' Don't know who that someone is but it was no one in the reservation party. So, we ended up with the worst seating... More

Strada 18 has long been one of my favorite restaurants for consistently good Italian food. My last meal there was such a disaster that I doubt I will go back. I ordered the Fra Diablo squid ink pasta. The squid ink fettuccini was clumped together in chewy wads. I told the waiter, but he walked away. It was so spicy... More

I was so blown away the first time that I had to come back 30min in the opposite direction for more. They have a great wine selection and the lunch special is literally perfetto!!! The pizza is out of this world and totally customizable. Very fresh very friendly atmosphere. 5/5

I have been dining at Strada 18 regularly since it opened but they crossed the line with me this weekend, not with food but attitude and service. We had a Groupon and was treated rudely. If Strada 18 was going to participate in Groupon then they should have been prepared to treat people well and honor their commitments. When I... More

Why work in the service industry if you don't like people or could not be bothered waiting on them? These are paying customers after all. Could it be because we had a Groupon and were already on the hook for $85? My husband and I were so looking forward to dinner at this SoNo restaurant. We chose a quiet Sunday... More

Thought we would give it a try but not worth it. Rudest Manager I have ever encountered at a restaurant! The food is not worth it either. Go right next door to Quarantina where we've eaten many times and they are so welcoming and the food is delicious.

This is my all time favorite Norwalk restaurant. I've been coming here for years and their food never gets old. Favorites : the white bean dip is delicious. The arancini balls are to die for and their spinach & fresh mozzarella pizza is also amazing. You won't be sorry!

Ok, nothing special, breadsticks served with balsamic vinegar while we looked at the menu, only problem is that its impossible to absorb balsamic on the end of a breadstick, silly oversight really! Good veggie pastas and veggie lasagna but sadly the pizza had a burned base and even though it was changed the replacement also had a burned base. The... More

I'd rate this restaurant an AVERAGE experience overall. The food was mediocre and nothing really wowed our taste buds. I truly expected more from the ratings I've read. The feel of the restaurant felt as if they were trying too hard to be something they're not. The decor needs to be lifted a bit; the service was decent, but could... More
