Description: Situated in a converted school in Leopold Square, Strada in Sheffield is only a few minutes away from the theatre and the city’s tourist attractions, making it a hit with luvvies and sightseers alike. This popular Italian restaurant chain is famous for its authentic handmade pizzas - which are cooked in a traditional forno a legna wood-fired oven – and its extensive menu of rustic, regional pastas and puddings are made using only the finest fresh ingredients such as Parma ham, extra virgin olive oil and Buffalo mozzarella imported from Italy. Perfect for business lunches and cosy evening meals, you can’t go wrong with Strada’s successful formula of simple, tasty food combined with sleek design, friendly service and a buzzy, down-to-earth atmosphere. The proof, as they say, is in the pizza.

“Worst restaurant experience ever?”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We were a party of 10 celebrating a Grauation. Having being asked to leave Zizzi after we had drinks because of the fire alarm sounding we were taken across to Strada with the pomise of excellent service and food.
The experience was awful. The meals came 90 minutes after first ordering, and only for 5 persons. Remaining meals came one by one after 5 persons had eaten One meal was different to the order without any explanation. I felt sorry for the waitresses who shared our terrible experience. After a complaint we were told we could just pay for the drinks and none of the meals. A meek offer to retreive the situation. The Strada had a great chance to impress new customers and completeley missed the opportunity.

“Delicious food and excellent service”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Just stopped by this restaurant on a unplanned visit. From the moment we arrived we were made welcome by the friendly staff. Was a busy Friday evening but service was excellent. The food was delicious and plentiful, we found portion size was ample (and we both have healthy appetites). We will definately be returning to this vibrant welcoming restaurant and have no hesitation in recommending this venue.

“great all rounder”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Very pleasant on our arrival - as we were late!, Very attentive staff and the service was attentive. Food was fresh and full of flavour. We had a disruptive couple of diners at the next table which we would have been more than happy to have been dealt with - But wasn't!.
Other than that we would visit again BUT its not cheap!

“Good food and friendly service”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We visited this restaurant with a group of friends earlier this month. The waitress was very friendly and helpful and the service was very good.
The food was very good, although I thought my portions were rather small and would have left some people still feeling hungry! ( I had lamb shank.)
My husband, however, had the linguine pescatore and thoroughly enjoyed his ample portion.
We had a good evening and I would recommend this restaurant.
