“a must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We go to Bournemouth every year for a golf break.In the evenings we always eat at La Strada.
Now as we get older we go to Bournemouth to eat at La Strada and then we play golf.
If you haven't tried this restaurant you are missing out.The food is always fantastic and the patron is always ready for a lively discussion on any topic you care to pick.Thanks la Stada.

“A happy mistake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

I'll confess that I thought this was one of the Strada chain when I googled the address. I saw my mistake as soon as we saw the restaurant. It was closed when we go there (early for a theatre night), but the manager/owner? cheerfully opened for us, an was very pleasant

I had the Fettuccine Rosso, and it was delicious. It was a really large portion, but I couldn't resist eating it all. My other half's steak was equally large and good, as was the house wine - though, strangely, that stained my teeth blue! Blue teeth apart, it was a mistake with a happy ending.

“Great atmosphere and real value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

We've been coming here for years and had many of our kids parties for their birthdays as they were all growing up. Its always been a great atmosphere with great music and the food is and always has been consistently of a very high standard. Plenty of choice for all palates including a decent amount of choice for veggies. The Pizzas and pasta are the best in Bournemouth , far better than the various chains dotted around these days. Thoroughly recommended by all of our family and friends and I should also mention the friendliness of the staff and owners. There's always a warm welcome at la strada

“After Show Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

A great place for an after show meal near to the BIC. We got there at 10:45pm and fearing that it would be closed was welcomed with open arms. The waiter showed us to our table, gave us menus and asked us not to be too long before ordering. As we only wanted pizzas this was no problem. We were looked after very well even the owner came round to see if everything was ok and if we enjoyed the show, it seemed strange that they all knew we'd been to the BIC. The pizzas were good too - just what we wanted. We will certainly call again next time we are in Bournemouth.
