New Proprietor and Head Chef at La Strada Nuova, Lee Scott, after a successful launch and Valentines service with rave reviews, announces 'My mission at La Nuova La Strada is that diners' expectation will be for the usual, then be blown away, go 'wow' for my food that's without pretentiousness. Here it will be...No fuss, massive flavour and value...Me on a plate! Nice service, good food and great atmosphere.' At this popular conservatory built restaurant in White Horse Yard, opposite the museum in Towcester, like predecessor Luigi, Lee is also Italian influenced in his cooking. A Mediterranean Bistro style eatery, La Strada Nuova (Italian meaning New...New Road) as Lee has named it, is anticipated to be a popular, welcoming, flexible place for people from in and around Towcester to meet and dine. We serve the vibrant tastes of Italy from our kitchen and orangery restaurant opposite the Towcester Museum.

Good food and pared back wine list

We dropped by La Strada Nuovo for the first time since it changed hands back in February to find the menu had changed quite dramatically and is now concentrating more on some of the less pricy choices and wine list too has been pared right back, with most bottles priced at £20 or less.

My husband and I went to La Strada on Friday evening for our 2 year anniversary and Lee, Patricia, Harry and the rest of the team did not disappoint. The food and service were both spectacular, porcetta and polenta chips particuarly good. We'll definately be going again and telling our friends and family about it. Thank you very much!

Visited La Strada this week after we heard it was under new management, what a difference in such a short time. The new team have got it right, the chef is an ex Gordon Ramsey head chef, and certainly knows what he is doing. We have been waiting for a restaurant like this since moving here a little over two...

Me and the Mrs visited La Strada on Wednesday night after we had heard it had changed hands. The owner is the chef, he has a great background in cooking, I am also told he was a head chef for Gordon Ramsey in London. This is without question the best meal we have had in Towcester ever. We have been... More
