The pizza was delicious. The chicken sandwich and burger ordered by the family looked good too. We sat on the patio and watched the Lake Lure beach goers and the geese.

It wasn't busy at all when we came in here to dine, so we got to sit outside and enjoyed the view. After our appetizer was served, the waiter disappeared. We ordered three different kinds of pizza. The food took a long time and they...More

We heard the pizza was great! We were not disappointed! The view of Lake Lure was a big bonus as well.

Ok, we drove by this place countless time but never stopped for a couple years, it looks kind of like a tourist trap from the outside, just across from the beach on the hillside. Step inside and you're greeted to a nice Italian restaurant with...More

We were here on the 4th of July for dinner. We were seated right away. We ordered a pepperoni and mushroom Deep dish. Wasn’t a fan of the crust and this pizza was just ok. Probably wouldn’t return.

La Strada is a romantic Italian restaurant overlooking beautiful Lake Lure. Come visit us and surround yourself with plush mountains and a picturesque lake while you dine on our elevated covered terrace. Lake Lure received its name because it was said that the scenery and peacefulness lured you back time after time. We hope our rich family traditions and vintage recipes will have the same affect. In 1974 La Strada opened the first of several locations in Charlotte, North Carolina. Starting as a small family business specializing in New York style brick oven pizza and traditional Italian cuisine; word quickly spread about the great food and La Strada became a Charlotte favorite. After over 35 years of serving great food in Charlotte, La Strada and the original family members came to Lake Lure with their family recipes offering one of the most varied and unique menus in the area. There’s something special for everyone!
