Description: La Strada is a romantic Italian restaurant overlooking beautiful Lake Lure. Come visit us and surround yourself with plush mountains and a picturesque lake while you dine on our elevated covered terrace. Lake Lure received its name because it was said that the scenery and peacefulness lured you back time after time. We hope our rich family traditions and vintage recipes will have the same affect. In 1974 La Strada opened the first of several locations in Charlotte, North Carolina. Starting as a small family business specializing in New York style brick oven pizza and traditional Italian cuisine; word quickly spread about the great food and La Strada became a Charlotte favorite. After over 35 years of serving great food in Charlotte, La Strada and the original family members came to Lake Lure with their family recipes offering one of the most varied and unique menus in the area. There’s something special for everyone!

Leaving Chimney Rock area and asked for a recommendation for an early diner. La Strada had a fabulous view of Lake Lure. Comfortable patio seating Attentive wait staff and most especially food to die for. Scallop and shrimp fettuccine with vodka cream sauce and Penne pasta with sausage both unforgettable.

Good food at reasonable prices with a fabulous view of the lake and the mountains. Limited hours during the winter, so call ahead if you visit then.

Good news, great location, great views of the lake and mountains. Bad news, perhaps because we were "tween" lunch and dinner, we had patchy service (they were busy refreshing the tables), and the food was mediocre (salmon was dry, fries over done, etc.). A second diner's pizza was crispy crust and covered with toppings, but you can get that anywhere.

In short, this place is REALLY nice. My wife and I have been here several times, and will return.

But I have been taken back by the waittess'es offer for a discount if I give a favorable review here.

Wow ... I'd have given one anyway. So sad that they seem to be breaking the rules, even though they don't need to. {sigh}

Anyway...I sincerely think they DON'T need to, and you will enjoy your meal, and experience, regardless.

I will not make use of their discount for giving this review. I wish they never offered me this thing. They should've just trusted themselves. They're well worth it.
