Dined two evenings at La Strada and cannot recommend it highly enough. The quality of the food is excellent (some of the best I have had outside Italy), the wine list is well selected and reasonably priced and the service is friendly and efficient. The owner is happy to chat with you and you get a real sense that providing... More

Myself and my partner visited Bournemouth for the weekend and ended our weekend with dinner at La Strada. Excellent food and service. Every course tasted delicious and the service was impeccable. Could not fault a single thing and although there were other people in the restaurant, the staff made us feel like there was only us there. Will definitely go... More

They have got rid of the youngsters serving and replaced with articulate ladies. What a difference this makes to the experience. The food is as good as it has ever been, but the overall experience is amazing. You have to eat here for authentic Italian food.

A traditional Italian that's family run. well situated for pre theatre or cinema visits. it's now an oasis in a desert of chain restaurants. Good pizzas and pasta and an excellent selection of seafood and very nice steaks. We visit fairly regularly and have done for years. it's a bit subjective but in my opinion everything at la strada is... More

We popped in here on spec before going to the cinema. Although we hadn't booked it was no problem. We arrived just before 7pm and got seated straightaway, however by the time we left the place was jumping. The atmosphere was amazing! The staff were very attentive, the service was always with a smile. The food was absolutely delicious and... More

Decided to go here as we were on our way to the Pavilion Theatre and this was handy and near to the car park. We had been here before and had a good meal. On arrival we were shown to the front of the restaurant, I assume to give the impression that the place was heaving. It was not. Ordered... More
