This is in a wonderful location, easy to access by rail and bus, with views over the River Thames.

Good wine list, everything from cheap to wow, how much?

Ordered rib eye steak and french fries, very disappointing, steak cold and tough and chips not much better and not much of it either. Shame as the starter of prawns was excellent.

Like another reviewer here, we used to love Strada Barnes which used to provide first-class service and great food in a terrific riverside location.

I always chose it for my birthday meal with family, but after this year, never again! No complimentary filtered water, several wrong dishes delivered and rudeness to boot!

Such a bad experience that we emailed the parent company - anodyne apology and a £20 voucher ( which cannot be used with promotions!).

Certainly won't be using it at Barnes!

Strada Barnes is set in a great location; right by the river with nice views particularly from the upstairs part of the restaurant. It's always a treat to visit the place, enjoy great pizza and pasta, albeit the standard offerings of any Strada restaurant. Generally, I've always found staff at the Barnes branch to be friendly, helpful and accommodating, which is somewhat rare in London these days! Highly recommended for a relaxing meal out.

Poor food - Large Veggie pizza turned out to be a small flatbread (then it isn't a pizza is it!!!) with cold veg - if you can call a few bits of rocket and cold sliced onion a selection of vegetables. Served on a slate which crumbled as you cut into it.

No coffee as the coffee machine was broken (and cafetierres and coffee powder aren't available anywhere in London? so no chance of using a bit of initiative and a stop gap measure.. just 'No Coffee'..hmmm

All in all, I'd say staff here just can't be bothered, and the food was no better than Burger King... all bluff and no substance, which ruins a pleasant restaurant in pleasant surroundings

I just love Italian food & Strada offers a good choice at reasonable prices especially when there is an offer on!
