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.

“Absolutely appalling”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We went to Strada for Valentine's and one of the dishes my partner had was an olive pate. She is extremely allergic to fish/seafood and there was no indication of the dish being composed of this. She even asked the waiter what was in the dish! (to which her replied only olives...)

She has been terribly ill for the last couple of days. The £60 was definitely not worth it. Truly appalling and in breach of legal regulation.

If you have any allergies I'd suggest you go to Bella Italia.

Not to mention the food was sub par...

“Below average, poor service, poor value for money.”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Really disappointing first visit to strada Sheffield. Not a particularly busy eve being early on a Tuesday but that still didn't stop the service being terrible. If this is strada standard then in my view it's not much better than fast food, only more expensive! Waitresses concentrated more on clearing empty tables than looking after guests. More restaurant staff or better training needed. Pizza was one if the worst I've ever been served so the pizza chef may need to refocus his eye on the ball, it's not hard to make pizza!

“Good Food and Nice Ambience”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Quite simply, a nice restaurant in Leopold Square. Good food, a nice choice of wine, and very attentive staff. The fact that there was not a spare table when wewere there speaks for itself.

“Great food and friendly service!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We popped in here for a late lunch and were not disappointed. The pasta and salad dishes were good and the chicken al fungi was delicious. The staff were really friendly and efficient too. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
