Spontaneous visit for Strada.
Member Name: Muffin86
Advantages: Friendly Staff. Accomdated us when we hadn't booked a table. Delicious Food.
My husband and I recently walked past Strada and thought we would pop in and well i'm glad we did. Although we hadn't booked a table the staff managed to get us seated straight away.
We enjoyed a basket of garlic bread to start and opted for a chicken dish for the main, we then finished the meal off with a dessert. I found the portion sizes were really good, as in the past I have visited restaurants and felt over faced by the amount of food they have provided. At the end of the meal, I felt full without feeling sick or that I had over indulged.
The meal was delicious and each dish came out in good time, we didn't feel like we were waiting in between courses, however we also didn't feel rushed through the meal.
We were also given a complimentary bottle of water for the table, which was nice to drink alongside the meal and also meant we didn't have to purchase more than one drink each.
There was a family at the table next to us with a young boy whose birthday it was, the staff had decorated his table and bought him out some balloons, they also put candles and sparklers in his dessert and together sang happy birthday to him.
He looked so thrilled and his parents were so proud as they took pictures, these little extras can really make a difference to the mood within a restaurant and I thought the effort the staff made with the little boy was lovely.
Summary: Loved Strada - Will go again!!
