good home type Italian

The owner is a very charming lady and her servers are as well. The sauces have a home made authentic taste. Eggplant parm , pasta with meat sauce, and chicken stuffed with spinach, are all good choices

A cozy place with friendly neighborhood ambience. This time our pasta was served just warm: We were with another couple so didn't interrupt the dinner to have it heated. Usually it's better than this day, and the other couple enjoyed their meals.

I must say that I have had my fill of ravioli in different Italian restaurants but La Strada has been the best. Very tasty sauce and the extra sliced mushrooms on top really bring out the mushroom flavor. Pizza was also very good and light. The bread sticks were plain not the highlight of my dinner. Everything else was great.... More

We stopped in for Italian and were not disapppointed. We had the manicotti and a chicken dish. Bread was very good also. A vanilla cheesecake dessert was also a thumbs up. We ate outside and were surprised that there is a heater installed above the awning. Sweet. Good times. Ciao!

So funny that some of the reviews think that red checkered table maps is exciting, talk about small town mentality. Food is very mediocre, not at all what the reviews try to depict of a good home cooked style meal. It's industrial and bland, it's at a level of a fast food pizza chain and obviously some of the reviews... More

We have come here for years and it is such an easy place to enjoy! Wait staff is genuine and they work hard to notice what you might need for the table. Dinner suggestions...."Gamberi al Olio" is perfection! Eggplant Parmesan is the best around!

This is a place I eat pretty regularly for two reasons. One, the french bread is exceptional and it's keeps on coming. The second is I've never had a single bad meal here. I live in Long Beach and we eat out regularly. I usually go for the seafood pasta. Sometimes me and my wife share but if you're really... More

A favorite haunt of ours for California Italian food. Many choices for other than red sauce dishes. Any dish with their signature lobster cream sauce is wonderful.

Located on 2nd street, La Strada provides delicious food for a very reasonable price. I recommend this place for any sort of party: single, couples, friends or family. Their seafood pasta has excellent sauce selections. The portions are very adequate. Their Italian decor gives you that homey feeling as if your eating dinner at your long lost Italian aunts house....

This is another great local spot, and when I am craving Italian its whee we go most of the time. We tried their pizza and whatever cheese they use makes it taste so yummy. Introduced it to my parents who are deep dish fans and every time they come down they want to get some! Like the sausage and peppers... More
