I had not been here in years. My wife was there recently with some friends and really enjoyed her meal. We went on a Saturday night around six o'clock. We were seated immediately. Service was very good. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable of his menu. We had a delicious and leisurely meal. We going to go back on a... More

Old world ambiance. Large menu, very traditional dishes. Limited veal and fish choices. Salads OK but not great. Main courses and pastas are excellent. Hot, tasty, well presented. Lots of good bread. Good desserts. Good wine list but not many wines by the glass. Service is attentive and friendly despite the formal dress of the waiters. Live music on Friday... More

There are several restaurants on Staten Island that need to be revisited time and again because they are consistently (maybe) surprisingly excellent. Often when I mention to friends that I dined there, they say "Oh. I haven't been there for years" . Well for your information, it will meet your expectations time and again. Lovely ambiance, good service and delicious... More

I was looking for a new restaurant to try for a nice meal on my birthday. And we stumbled across La Strada on New Dorp Lane. It was a Monday night, they were open and we were seated right away. Elegantly decorated with a quite intitmate setting was perfect for a low key birthday celebration. I had the Porkchops La... More

How Goodfellows received a much higher rating then La Strada is a total mystery to me! It is like comparing mama's home cooking to the neighborhoods good pizzeria! We have been eating at La Strada since they opened many years ago. The ambiance is cozy with a flare of unobtrusive elegance The linen tablecoths, fresh flowers and cleanlyness make this... More

La Strada has delicious food in a beautiful space. It's located on busy New Dorp Lane, but once you are inside, you forget where you are. The staff is attentive and the wine selection is nice.

We made and were confirmed for a reservation for dinner the other night. I travelled some distance to visit a friend who is in the area temporarily on an assignment. When we arrived for dinner, we were told to "wait just a minute," by a young man. An older man returned, and told us our reservation would not be honored,... More

We've been coming here for the most part every week for over 10 years and never had a sub par meal. The food is excellent, always fresh, especially the fish. The service is second to none. If you want to have one of your best culinary experiences... you need to try La Strada. In addition to their standard menu they... More

I have been living in Staten Island for almost 5 yeas now. ( Originally from Brooklyn) I rarely, however, eat in Staten Island. For the most part restaurants here are not on the same level in my experience, as restaurants in Brooklyn or Manhattan. I'm usually back in Brooklyn or in Manhattan to eat and go out. One weekday night,... More

After reading the reviews, we decided to trek into Staten Island from Jersey to eat here. It was well worth the $11 tolls because the food and service were superb. My brother also came from B'klyn to meet us here and we all couldn't be happier. Two of us had the Zuppa de Pesce. It was so flavorful and the... More
