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

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!
