“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had lunch on Bank Holiday Monday and were using up some Tesco Deals vouchers left over from another meal out.
Contrary to a previous reviewer's account, we found the restaurant to be spotless. As soon as a table was vacated, the waiter immediately cleared and thoroughly wiped it. I noticed this particularly at the time and thought it admirable. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful, the service was quick and efficient without being rushed or intrusive. The food was excellent, good quality and generous portions. All the other diners present appeared to be equally happy with their meals. Children were welcomed and happily catered for. We would have no hesitation in recommending Strada to any visitors to Tunbridge Wells.

“give it a miss”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

The tables were not cleaned. there was salt all over ours and oil on the place mats. Even when the waiter arrived, he did nothing about this and he was the manager/owner.

We started with garlic bread, which was very nice. But then we had Pizzas, which were utterly bland with hardly any taste.

We normally go to Prezzo for Italian food, or occasionally Zizzi. Strada has no chance of survival against these two if that was there usual standard.

“Ordinary food, dreadful service”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We went in for a qucik meal before going to a show at the Assembly Rooms round the corner, just because it was near and my friend had a "thrid off" voucher. I hadn't expected much, but it was worse than I thought it would be, largely because the staff were so rude and dismissive. They were probably understaffed, but that was no excuse for the willful ignoring of us when we asked to order drinks, the perfunctory service of the food, the forgetting that we'd ordered tap water etc. They kept on saying how busy they were and turning people away, yet there were empty tables. Do you want to leave a tip? Definately not. The pizza was OK, but only just.
