1st time I've been here and wasn't dissapointed. Food was fabulous and service was attentive and polite. Wasn't the busiest of nights but that was a positive for us. Lovely feel to the conservatory area even on a rainy night. Will Definately be back!! X

Tonights experience was so disappointing I've actually gone out of my way to sign up to TripAdvisor to write this! The last time I came here I had a really nice time however I cannot say the same for tonight when I went out for a meal with my girlfriend. In a summary; our order was taken immediately and the drinks and starters followed this rather quickly, however that is where the good part ends. In the hour and thirty minutes we were in the restaurant we were never asked if we would like another drink despite mine running out after the first course. While eating our mains nobody came round to see if everything was ok, this was a shame because my girlfriend's meal was inedible as the veal was impossible to chew through. When the waitress came to take our food away she asked how it was as my girlfriend had a full plate of food, we told her how the meat was full of fat, she didn't seem to care much and walked off without apologising or offering us something else. Five minutes later a different waiter walked over and rather than offering the dessert menu or a coffee he simply plonked the bill in front of us and walked off. We didn't care much that one of the meals was bad but it was how the staff dealt with it as they could have simply offered to take it off the bill, offer us another meal or a drink, instead we got the bill which was an indication they wanted us to leave. I don't think we will be returning.

This restaurant is about 2 mins walk from the sea front. Party of 16 on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was full, but the service was very good with friendly staff. The food was excellent and lots to choose from,

It has been many years since I have been to La Strada. So when recently in town with friends I thought id give it a go again. La Strada is very much in Bournemouth town centre and feels like a family run Italian restaurant. It is a big restaurant and when I visited there were not many other people there, which is a shame. The food was very good, I had a pizza, and the service friendly. Interesting foyer area with pictures of the staff enjoying fun evenings serving celebrities over the years but above that a poster supporting their local adoption agency, which was a nice touch.
