We ate here when we were given a promotion of 20% off our food bill when the restaurant first opened. We chose pasta dishes as we often eat pizza at home. The dishes were huge but I was a disappointed with the flavour of the dishes and the amount of meat and sauce with the pasta. It seemed like the... More

We were rushing to get to a show at the Millennium Centre and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating as they did everything they could to get our food out promptly. The food was very good indeed, particularly the pizzas.

Service was dreadful, I waited 40 minutes for a ceasar salad, and then I needed to ask the waiter how much longer was it going to take... reply was it was taking a long time because they were cooking the chicken!!! 8 strips of chicken really??? I could have cooked half a chicken in that time!

This used to be the pick of the bunch, but it has really gone down hill recently. The service is great, but the food is far from it. They had run out of staple things (stock management seems to be an issue) Fiorentina pizza - "um we have run out of spinach, so will rocket do" Draft Peroni, sorry no.... More

On a visit to Cardiff yesterday a friend and myself explored the Bay Area of Cardiff. There are a number of restaurants but we feel we made the right choice. It was a beautiful day and tables were laid outside. The Menu is very varied (Italian) and it was difficult to choose there was so much on offer. The desserts... More

Description
Located in the trendy Mermaid Quay neighbourhood of Cardiff, Strada boasts picturesque seaside views and a large terrace for sunny al fresco dining. This popular Italian restaurant chain is famous for its authentic handmade pizzas - which are cooked in a traditional forno a legna wood-fired oven – and its extensive menu of rustic, regional pastas and puddings are made using only the finest fresh ingredients such as Parma ham, extra virgin olive oil and Buffalo mozzarella imported from Italy. Perfect for business lunches and cosy evening meals, you can’t go wrong with Strada’s successful formula of simple, tasty food combined with sleek design, friendly service and a buzzy, down-to-earth atmosphere. The proof, as they say, is in the pizza.
