My starter turned up after the rest of my family had eaten theirs. Then my main turned up after my family had got through half of their mains and they did not bring out what I asked for. It was then brought back out to me once everyone else had almost finished theirs and one half of the food was piping hot and the other half stone cold!
I would warn people to stay away from this place if they are busy as they obviously cannot cope under stress and the chef nees to be fired! None of my family where impressed with the food they had and all in all, they ruined our night out.

Went to Strada Salisbury yesterday for a treat. As we sat we were told there was no fish, asked for olives, no olives (in an Italian restaurant!), but you could have olives on your pizza or in your salad. Lots of other items out of stock including about half of the puds. "New" menu very poor and uninspiring, no tuna, or other favourites. I had a quattro stagioni pizza, ok but barely cooked, a la pizzaexpress (they weren't busy). Shame, love Strada and particularly this one, be a while before I return.

Strada was a great find in Salisbury especially when we drove in late and were looking for a nice place to end the day. The food was really yummy and some of the best Italian we had eaten in the UK. The waitress was really attentive and the service prompt. We enjoyed the wine from a pretty comprehensive wine list as well. Not the cheapest around, but not over the top either.

I have regularly eaten at Strada, Salisbury over the last few years. Sometimes visited with the whole family and sometimes as a couple. Have always found it a good quality venue. Staff are always, friendly and food very good. In particular it's always been nice for a 'romantic' meal out with good low level 'mood' lighting.

However, I took my wife there recently (Sept 12) for a special occasion meal and was nearly blinded by the bright lights! Honestly, it was like eating whilst under interrogation! Spot lights on full everywhere and hanging bright lights in-between for good measure! There was no ambiance at all. I did mention to the staff but nothing was done even to take the edge of it!

I would have given 4 or 5 stars normally but seeing as this ruined what was to be a nice evening I'm struggling to give them 3 (food was still good though and staff still friendly).

I won't be returning until they sort this out (suppose I could wear sun glasses though)...shame really.
