I've been to Strada before and expect a decent standard of food but on this visit the food was sub standard. For starter we ordered squid and for main a medium rare sirloin steak. It took 15mins for the squid to arrive (empty restaurant). The warning signs were there already, this tasted like it had been cooked then reheated several... More

As a chain of restaurants, Strada has always been above average, especially for their pizza. I was however disappointed with the pizza at this branch. I ordered a Cotto ham and fungi, the base was soft, lacking the usual crunchy texture associated with a good pizza. The tomato sauce was also bland and was not properly seasoned. I also thought...

Really disappointed. Carbonara ordered. An hour later I received a bowl of tepid slop. Bland and needed a lot of pepper to mask how dull it was. Avoid at all costs.

I came to the restaurant around 8 PM on a weeknight. I was able to sit down right away and the server came by quickly with the menu. I was able to receive and eat my order within a half an hour including dessert! Unfortunately for me the restaurant was quite loud with music playing and most of the tables... More

This was the first time we were visiting this restaurant (although we've visited other Strada branches before). We were very pleased by the friendly, smiley service. The food was nice - we did not wait long (the restaurant was quiet though - to be expected on a January weekday) and the servings were generous. We will come back.

Had a meal before going to the theatre. Great welcome very pleasant waitress. Food was tasty and served promptly. Had three courses and used my taste card so only paid for one person not two. Will go back.

This is a nice little place! The staff were very good putting up with us the food was lovely. We walked in and asked for a table for 15 on a Saturday night without a table booking and they fitted us in without complaining unlike some other restaurants we had tried nearby.

Very convenient location in Holborn and easy to book in advance as well - we stopped off here for lunch and ordered gourmet burgers - not the most "Italian" food, but they were prepared very well and the service was good.

Very reasonably priced for London. Booked for 5pm as going to theatre. Service was a bit shaky to begin with and took over half an hour to get a drink!, so we decided to order everything we wanted at once as show began at 7pm.This worked well and the food was delicious. I was with my granddaughter and she had... More
