“Seriously cold though usually reliable restaurant chain.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We arrived here on a freezing cold January evening and the restaurant was freezing cold. This was a combination if the weather conditions, high ceilings and large windows. We are with our coats on as did many diners. Apparently this is a problem with the quality of the heating system that staff advised was due to be rectified.
Otherwise decent food and the use of a voucher ameliorated the chill.

“Food was fab, temperature of the restaurant wasnt!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Had a lovely 3 course meal here the other weekend, however as it was snowing outside the temperature didnt seem to change once we were indoors. I sat shivering through my meal! Can't fault the food though!

“Ok and nice interior but not the best option in the hub at present”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

I have to say I was a bit disappointed in Strada. Had pre--ordered the veggie option off a special menu (only one) and they did not have it . Asked for a jug of water for out table and got a bottle (to pay for) was in Turtle Bay (2 doors away) the day before and we got jugs of water . The heating also not working properly and big industrial heaters so all far from ideal.

Went with Calzone and ok but nothing special .

Lot of options in the Hub and whilst the food was ok it is not cheap and the little things need to improve.

“Not recommended”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Managed to get a table for 12. Food took forever to come out and didnt come out together. Meals were small. Meals weren't as described on menu or as ordered. Extremely Overpriced for size and service. One diner with us ended up with a tea towel on his lap whilst eating after the Barman had chucked it on the side of bar n it went straight over edge. Bill came in Italian (fair enough we were in an Italian restaurant but to divide the bill took us a long time as we don't speak Italian!) we had 3 children with us whose meals were bigger than my main pasta dish!! I ended up in Sainsburys buying sandwiches an crisps to eat straight after we left!

“Noisy overcrowded and poor food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The anti pasting was warm and greasy, however the the tapinade was quite good.
The mains were all disapointing.
We had 2 saltimboccas l1 ribeye which was. Over done, 1 penne pastsa buffalo, this was not only stone cold but seemed like a tin of tomatoes poured over pasta with mozzarella on top.

Very poor will not be eating again.
