I have never gone back. Food a bit pricy for portions, Salmon is farm raised. The hot bread is EXCELLENT, but you have to wait forever to get more. Coffee service and service in general was non-attentive. I left hungry.

La Strada is a cute Italian Cafe that has been on 2nd Street forever! The staff always looks happy. I think its because second generation owner, Lisa, treats them like family. Happy wait staff makes for happy customers. A while back they changed their Egg Plant Parm recipe. But I found out you can still get their "original" recipe just... More

Belmont Shore has a lot of great restaurants and La Strada is another one. Hubby & I had a late lunch on a quiet, rainy afternoon. The interior is very cute with vines and cute sayings painted on the walls – “A meatball on your plate is worth two on the floor”. We were seated immediately and brought fresh, warm... More

We visited last night w/out of town guests who picked the spot. They were impressed w/the story in the menu and the front cover photograph. I did not look at the wine list but from the looks around the restaurant they have a more than adequate selection of wines to choose from. When we got there, the restaurant was fairly... More

This little neighborhood Italian restaurant located in Belmont Shore has been around forever. The employees are wonderfully friendly & the food is the old time Italian & delicious. The other night I had their Ravioli stuffed with ricotta in a delicious brown-butter sage sauce. My husband had the piccata chicken with fettuccine...yummy light white wine & caper sauce. The salads... More

Long Beach 2nd Street is very popular for dinner -- we found this little restaurant on 2nd Street, and it was very good. Some had pizzas, salads, I had minestrone (not very much... More
