What a feast & amazing service!
My partner and I were seated at the best table in the house, and our waiter Vincenzo was delightful, funny and very knowledgeable about our meal.
The Antipasto platter was fab, my favourite main dish was the Strozzapreti Puglises hand twisted pasta - so fresh and full of flavour. For dessert the Affogato reigned supreme.
I would highly recommend these dishes, and have since been back twice!
WELCOME: very friendly, our waitress couldn’t have been more helpful.
SERVICE: fast, friendly and attentive
FOOD - STARTERS:
Castelvetrano olives were absolutely delicious and very moreish! Subtle buttery flavour and not too strong a taste.
Schiacciatella Aglio Flat Bread was very tasty, the rosemary really made it a step up from the usual garlic bread.
Antipasto Plate was very nicely presented on a wooden board, with a small selection of different colt cuts, fresh mozzarella and tomato, a delicious bruschetta and a healthy portion of tapenade which was very good.
FOOD - MAIN COURSES:
Strozzapretti Pugliese had a nice fresh taste from the broccoli and a mild chilli kick. The pasta was unusual and the whole dish felt very homely and comforting.
Saltimbocca Maiale was simple and very well done - the Parma ham wrapped around the pork adds an extra layer of flavour as does the sage butter; the mash was smooth and creamy and the green beans add freshness.
Pizza Quattro Stagioni was a disappointment - the base was too thin in the centre and was slightly overloaded with sauce, meaning an overall soggy experience. I could tell the toppings used were of good quality though.
FOOD - DESSERTS:
Both the Affogato and Pistachio Gelato were simple, not too large, and a very nice way to finish the meal off.
Our waitress very kindly gave us each a shot of Limoncello to finish the meal off, I had never tried it before - what a flavour sensation, like sunshine in a glass.
Overall I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend all of the new menu - with perhaps the exception of the pizza - and will certainly be coming back to Strada in future.
