We have been at that restaurant 3 times this year, our last visit was early December 2011. If you can get passed the unpleasant guy greeting you at the door (must be a family member of the owner...) you're in for a good italian meal, prepared with attention to details. The waiters were attentive to details each time we went as couple or with family.

Went for a family celebration with largish group. Food was generally very good, except one comment was that fresh tomatoes in a salad were too much "standard hot-house".

We were not the only festive group and the restaurant was very loud. We have been there before, and we believe it used to have window curtains and carpeting. We would like it better if there were better sound-deadening.

Service was very friendly, though at times a little scattered.

We really appreciate having such an enjoyable spot quite near where we live, so these comments are aimed only at helping La Strada become even better.

La Strada delights with its great Internalional-Italian cusine. The quality is fantastic for a menu that offers such a vast variety of pleasures.

The service is excellent, friendly and attentive. The decor is beautiful and classy yet the atmosphere is quaint and friendly; balanced in good harmony.

Defintely, one of Ottawa' best for years.

It's been several years since I've been to La Strada after moving from Ottawa and my memories and anticipation of great food were lived up to. Great service and superb food.

I thought it was good. The rapini was excellent, the artichokes not so much. The gnocchi was good but the seafood smelled wonderful. Eating outside was lovely and the service was excellent.
