Cafe La Strada is a must if you love Italian Food. They do not miss a beat. If it is not one of the specials, of which there may be over 20, they will make your request to order.

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating our mothers birthday. The service was fantastic, the wine was great and the food and menu phenomenal. Can't say enough nice things. The only negative was the valet parking attendant was very rude when I wanted to park my own car. But our excellent waiter assured me he would have a... More

This was a location recommended by the hotel for dinner. It is in a small strip mall like area just off the expressway. It is easy to get to and has good valet parking. The restaurant is Italian throughout and is well decorated. I was there on a Wednesday night about 7:30 so it was not hard to get seated.... More

We dined here with friends on Saturday. The place was cozy and nicely decorated. We had a reservation so there was no wait for a table. Our waiter seemed nice however, when we asked him for the wine list, we were told that it didn't pay to give it to us since they didn't have most of the wines listed.... More

This is a wonderful little restaurant. One of our favorites. Cuisine is Italian of course. You will be surprised to find this unassuming place in a little strip mall just off the LIE offers such wonderful food and service. I have been here many times... with family, friends, clients and co-workers, lunch and dinner times. The food is uniformly and... More

We were seated right away, however, when we asked for the wine menu, the waiter said it didn't pay to give it to us since they didn't have most of the wines listed. That was our first clue! They also ran out of regular menus - apparently there was a big group in the back room and La Strada was... More

The food is beyond good. Everything we ordered was wonderful. They have the best polenta, my husband never misses a chance to have it. I have taken so many friends here & they agree. It holds it own to any Manhattan restaurant. Some what pricier for the area but definitely worth it.

I had dinner here with four other family members and couldn't have been more pleased. For an appetizer we ordered the mozzarella over eggplant and crabcakes. Both were indescribably delicious. We also had a very good calamari appetizer. The waiter suggested a good moderately priced bottle of wine which we enjoyed. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals - from veal to... More
