Description: Located in the trendy Mermaid Quay neighbourhood of Cardiff, Strada boasts picturesque seaside views and a large terrace for sunny al fresco dining. 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.

Had a great meal at Strada last night...food was tasty and fresh....starter was a tad smaller than I would of liked ....yet tasted great...as a main I opted for the chicken with mushroom sauce which was gorgeous in taste! We had wine with the meal a freshly tasting Pinot rose' ...we didn't have time for a dessert although I did have room for one!
Would deffinatley return to Strada ...and hope that we have the same standard of both food and service next time around .

Food was great. Service was friendly but poor. Even though low numbers in, took 15 minutes for drinks to arrive. Need to provide more staff to complement the great food. Sadly wont be using the third off deal in January.

Arrived just after midday and were the first people in the restaurant, but service still seemed to be quite slow.

Children enjoyed their pizzas, but my main course was decidedly unexciting (nothing wrong with it, just not what you'd hope for) and my wife's meal "tasted funny".

Starter was nice, and the deserts were on the house due to the funny main course and relatively poor service.

I was tempted with a 4 rating, but that would be based on previous experience with other Strada locations. For this location on this day, I can really only give a 3. Given the choice in the area, we're unlikely to go back.

always good food very friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere, the only downside is that i find it cold in there, no matter how hard the staff try there is always a draft from the door, sit as far away from it as you can
