We booked La Strada after reading the reviews as we were going to see Ball & Boe at the BIC. We were one of the first couples to arrive at the restaurant and all was well up to and including ordering our food. The service was good. Our starters arrived in a timely manner and were reasonable, although I remain... More

My son and I appreciated a fantastic meal prior to a show at BIC. Garlic bread, bruschetta for starters were enjoyed with a couple of pints of Thatchers. Pizza orders were marinara and Quattro staggioni. Difficult to choose which was tastiest - I said mine and my son said his! Lush meal. Thank u.

We ate here recently as a pre-show dinner; I so want to say that the food was on par with the show we went onto see. Unfortunately, this is not the case. We were greeted by a cheerful chap and shown to our seats (window seats - typical restaurant tactic) and left to our own devices. Our drinks order was... More

Very close to Hilton Hotel. The sea food is tasty with good size. The soup of the day is average. Mixed ice cream is excellent.

We ate her in October 2016 and had a lovely time. We called on the day asking for a table that evening, and mentioned it was my Nan's 90th Birthday so if they could put us on a nice table it would be very much appreciated. On arrival we had a lovely table that had been decorated with confetti and... More

We were a party of 6 and arrived to find the restaurant lively with a great atmosphere. We were shown to our table and drinks were ordered as we had a look at the menu. We had a very nice bottle of white wine which went nicely with the pasta dishes we had. The food was superb, Scallops to start... More

The wonderful restaurant we used to come to has changed. The characters serving you have gone to be replaced by younger waiters that have no empathy with customers, not in touch with people. The food is still as good, just such a shame that the customer service is not what it was!!!!!

Thank simonf985
