“Good Southbank Eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

This nice Italian restaurant is located on the Southbank between the Eye and Royal Festival Hall. On a nice day outside seating is very attractive watching the passing parade on the Thames bankside. There is extensive inside seating available when the weather turns nasty. The menu is typical of an Italian restaurant but we were taken by the quality of the food - the green Olives were superb, the pizza excellent - far better than others in London. Wine list was limited but of very good range and quality. Prices were quite reasonable and service very friendly. We actually returned for dinner some nights later after our good lunch experience, again excellent prompt service and very good food, pasta, pizza and yummy deserts. We did book on line fortunately as the place was full. Bring located next to the entertainment precinct and Royal Festival Hall they get lots of people out for concerts. Make a booking to ensure you get a table.

“Refreshing fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Visited the Heathrow terminal 3 branch,....blown away by the professionalism of attentive and happy staff, food was cooked to order, mine....slightly different from advertised on menu requested, which was brought without fuss. Very impressed as food was served on hot plates( I know, but it is so rare these days!) quality of dishes superb it made our airport experience a pleasure!!!

“Delicious Food/Excellent Service/Great Value/Memorable Experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The Strada (Cucina Italiano) we ate at was located at Westfield Stratford City, on the 2nd floor of Europe's largest shopping complex.
Without making this review too long, we can summarize it with this comment: "It was PERFECT!)

We were celebrating a birthday, so it was especially exciting to fall upon this unexpected find, in a beautiful, large, new shopping centre..
Not only would we go back to this Strada, but if all the Stradas in this chain follow the same mantra as the one we had such an outstanding experience with, then it's a sure bet! No question marks!

The added bonus - A fabulous shopping centre to browse in, after a belly full of delicious food!

“Comedy service & average food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Saturday night out for dinner & this restaurant was very disappointing. Service was very poor / slow. Food was average at best ... bread dry, olive oil bland & risotto ok without being special. Choose elsewhere if you have a choice.

“Food that captures the taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I always enjoyed eating at this restaurant. It desert menu is to die far. Last Saturday I bought my family and friends there for an evening out. They all enjoyed the food. I had my favourite from the chicken menue Pollo Funghi. It was delightful. I topped it off with Fondente Cacao.
