We've been going here for years and keep coming back. Byo with Italian cuisine. Love it in warm weather out back when the raw bar is open and the kids play bocce ball. Robert and Josephine have always taken great care of us.

Local small town place. Very good pizza , some very good entrees but fair pasta dishes. My wife's order of a salad , sausage and broccoli rabe was very good. My entree of Tortellini Bolognase was very so so. Small amount of sauce and very over cooked. No firmness to the pasta at all. It was mushy. Service was very... More

Never a disappointment in the outdoor Dinning. Grape vines, Bocce game, fresh herb garden for atmosphere. You would think you were in someone's back yard. Along with great service, fresh cooked food, brick oven puzza and gelato home made. What a surprise to be found on Olive Street. You will want to share this find with family and friends. BYOB.

For those that like Italian, this is a good little 'hid-away'. It is small - unless the patio is open - which on our night it was not due to rain. The inside is 'cozy and simple' lets say. We started with Zuppa di Mussels. This dish was a bit light on the mussel count and on the amount of... More

La Strada is not 5 star dining. However, it is a great little local gem tucked away in a location that used to house a lousy greasy spoon / deli. There is limited seating, but in nice weather the patio opens up for a true café style experience, similar to Europe. Prices are middle of the road, but that certainly... More

We went La Strada for a family dinner on a Sunday night and enjoyed every part of the dining experience. When we arrived, we were greeted by the owner Roberto and his wife and escorted to the patio. Once we ordered, the appetizer came within a reasonable amount of time and transitioned us to our meals perfectly. The appetizer was... More

This is the place for great Italian food in New Jersey. Fantastic pizza, made just right as you like it. But first, start with the Italian Antipasto - the best ever! Then, Pizza, Ravioli, Tortellini, whatever; always the best. And it's BYOB, so bring a good bottle and enjoy.

Visited this restaurant on Saturday night. Went early and there wasn't any problem with seating. Food was excellent, served right from kitchen piping hot. Chef's wife was our server and she was very pleasant and helpful. We will return soon.

This is a tiny little place but I'm very happy we found it. I was looking for somewhere close to Hillsborough for a work lunch. Roberto was great-very accommodating! We had the small private area in the back which was perfect. We had 16 but it could fit more. We brought our own wine and ordered off the regular menu.... More
