My reading of reviews (in TA and Y--p) had led me to think there wasn't much good value on University Avenue, but we were very pleasantly surprised after stumbling across and deciding to try La Strada, which was (at that early evening time) much less busy than the other candidates we were considering.
The menu was about the right length (not too many or too few dishes), with a few tempting-looking unusual choices. The food and wine we selected were all excellent and the prices reasonable. The atmosphere was nice - warm and lively but not too noisy for a conversation and with tables well spaced. Our waitress (Christine) was great, we followed several of her thoughtful recommendations and were not disappointed.
