We visited on Friday night as 2 couples on our regular monthly get together without kids! This is the first time we've eaten in Towcester and the recommendation we were given was spot on! Although a little quite I understand it is in new ownership and building a clientele can't be easy. Having said that, it was busy enough and... More

Finally a restaurant in towcester serving up market quality food at a reasonable price. Had an excellent family meal out last night at la strada nouva. The food was out standing, beautifully presented and tasted superb, especially the choclate fondant. The service was extremely welcoming, proffesional and attentive. We have booked already for our visit next week. Definately recommend.

We visited recently following a change in ownership/management/chef. Certainly a better atmosphere than that under the previous owner. Very helpful and attentive staff. Starters were all very good, fresh produce,tasty and well presented. A pork main dish was also good but the portion served was small. The pasta dish ordered was bland and unexciting. The menu was quite limited and... More

Visited La Strada for the second time under new management, had high expectations from the first visit and we were not disappointed. The Mothers Day set menu was good value for the quality of food served.

Fantastic menu choice, freshly cooked food that you know the head chef and owner Lee has really taken great passion at creating, prompt and efficient front of house, the service, atmosphere and professionalism really did make this a great Mothers Day lunch. The prawn and crab cocktail, the roasted belly of pork with crackling, the fresh selection of vegetables and... More

Best fillet steak I have eaten in a very long time and I couldn't help but sample my husbands meal which was also delicious 😀 We both left very happy... More

My family and I moved to the area about 9 months ago. As a family we love going out for dinner together and - when we can get a babysitter - my wife and I try to go out for dinner on a Saturday night.

Wasn't inspired by the menu choice on offer and struggled to pick something I really wanted. Went for the porchetta which was ok but the mash was a little tasteless and the portion not massive - some side veg would have been good. We paid £50 per head for 3 courses inc 2 bottles of wine which I thought was... More
