“Great dinner”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Our first dinner at Cafe La Strada was well worth it. The waiter could not have been more accommodating with our request. He sized up my son for spaghetti and meatballs and our dinners were top shelf. You can add us to the other great reviews.

“A true fine Dining experience”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

This is a diamond of a restaurant, the people are very friendly , the service impeccable ! If you want something not on the menu they will try and make it for you . I had the seafood ravioli with creamy tomato sauce made fresh , my wife had the baked clams and she raved about how good they were . I had also bought along a few friends who had the specials which were plentiful !! Don't let the setting of this fine restaurant in a strip mall setting fool you !! ***** stars Ps. Always ask for the specials of the day !

“A very nice restaurant in a strip mall”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

We were there on a business trip; stayed in a nearby-hotel. Recommended by the hotel, we were hesitant to take their advice, since our experience is that hotels tend to recommend chains and otherwise-mediocre restaurants. But this was nice. Very homey, and while busy, the staff was very nice. The food was good, with a few very reasonable deals on wine. We'll go back again. don't sit in the first room you walk in; go past the bar and sit in that room; it has much better ambiance.

“HOT hot hot”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We went to dinner at Cafe La Strada last night. Upon entering it felt a little warm but it was very humid yesterday. We sat and ordered our dinner. After about 15 minutes of sitting there, the heat became unbearable and the sweat was pouring off both of us. We asked the waiter if they could lower the air conditioner and he said he is broken. I feel that they should have informed us of this as we entered the restaurant. This is an upscale restaurant and it is not what you expect. We couldn't even eat out dinner it was so hot. It was actually cooler outside! We were offered no apology or anything and left in disgust. There is no excuse for an expensive restuarant not to have the air fixed during August. There are emergency companies that work round the clock. It is clear the new female owner does not take pride in the restaurant.
