My wife and I recently were married in Lake Lure, NC and decided to have our rehearsal dinner at La Strada. The owner (Joe) was an absolute pleasure to work with and had every detail worked out in advance. They were able to make changes at the last minute due to rain, as we were supposed to be set up outside, but were moved into the private room for no additional charge. The staff was very respectful and provided excellent service. Also, the food was fantastic. We had an Italian family style buffet set up, and they even made a special entrée for my parents, who are not too fond of garlic, which made everyone happy. Every detail was taken care of, and the price was very reasonable. We will be going back to visit La Strada every time we visit Lake Lure for the absolutely wonderful food and excellent service. I highly recommend La Strada to anyone. I also wanted to personally thank the owner Joe for an absolutely wonderful rehearsal dinner! It was more than we could have expected.
