Description: La Strada is a romantic Italian restaurant overlooking beautiful Lake Lure. Come visit us and surround yourself with plush mountains and a picturesque lake while you dine on our elevated covered terrace. Lake Lure received its name because it was said that the scenery and peacefulness lured you back time after time. We hope our rich family traditions and vintage recipes will have the same affect. In 1974 La Strada opened the first of several locations in Charlotte, North Carolina. Starting as a small family business specializing in New York style brick oven pizza and traditional Italian cuisine; word quickly spread about the great food and La Strada became a Charlotte favorite. After over 35 years of serving great food in Charlotte, La Strada and the original family members came to Lake Lure with their family recipes offering one of the most varied and unique menus in the area. There’s something special for everyone!

Planning our rehearsal dinner was made easy primarily because of Joe Mazur. He accomadated our party of 50 without any worries on our part. Even helped us show our DVD slideshow which was very important to us. The buffet was excellent and enjoyed by everyone. We were on the deck and things could not have been nicer - what a... More

Recently my two daughters with their families visited La Strada. There were 15 of us from ages 2 to 62. That didn't deter Destiny from quickly coming to take our order with a great big smile and a very pleasant attitude. The food was good but it was our server that really made the difference. We also enjoyed the atmosphere,... More

I was in from New York to visit a friend in Fort Mill, and she drove me about 100 miles to Lake Lure to visit the quaint little shops in the area and then we went to La Strada. We were given a table overlooking the lake. It was a nice Spring day. The lake was serene and very relaxing.... More

I was sightseeing in Lake Lure and once I saw La Strada overlooking the lake I knew I'd be having lunch there. Enjoyed eating on the outdoor porch on a beautiful fall day. Service was o.k., but I did have to ask for refills a couple of times. I had a house salad, two rolls, and lasagna, which was quite... More

The first view of our server Tamie was a smiling, happy face. She could not have been more friendly, helpful, and attentive and she knew her wines (being able to answer all our questions). My lasagna was excellent. Many times people think that Italian means a lot of spices......it doesn't. Their lasagna was just right. When the manager came over... More

La Strada came highly-recommended by family and friends. Let me tell you, my wife and I were blown away by the relaxed atmosphere, helpful and friendly staff, the views of beautiful Lake Lure...but we were pleasantly surprised at the quality, and quantity, of our meals. We ate until I thought we were going to pop, and still had enough to... More

Decent Lake Lure restaurants are rare..... usually many places aren't open and the food/service really sucks. La Strada's is a nice, very contemporary place with a nice view of the lake. There is a good selection of foods that are reasonable priced, and the staff are very friendly. Our food was quite good too, especially the pizza! We would have... More

Had the pizza - good choices of crust. Great service as well. This is also the only Lake Lure restaurant that seems to be open late.
