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!

It looks like a diner but wow, they have nailed the basics. Pizza - perfect. Breadsticks - generous and delicious. You will need to-go boxes. A little expensive but totally worth the view and the food.

Enjoy excellent Italian entrees and salads from the outdoor dining area that overlooks the beach area of lake. Would recommend to anyone and would eat there again!

We stayed at Lake Lure in our summer vacation and this is one of the best places in the area. We ordered a few pizzas and pasta and everything was very delicious. The services was great as well!
They have an outside seating and you have a great view there.

My husband and I ate at La Strada based on it's #2 market ranking on Trip Advisor. Awful! Portion sized so large that even the morbidly obese in the restaurant were wrapping up and taking home. Ribs which were a "feature," not a special, were under cooked on the bone side to the point that the fat had to be scraped off the meat instead of being rendered. My husband's Caesar lay on the plate like a pile of romaine mush drown in dressing. The waiter was delightful, thus providing an extra "star". Worst tourist meal since Olive Garden Times Square upon daughter's friend's instance.
