We've just had a lovely meal at Strada in Reading. Our Waiter, Diaz was very charming and good fun. He had good knowledge of the menu and was really attentive from start to finish. He made the evening.

My friend and I enjoyed our evening at Strada. On entrance, it sounded noisy but I quickly adjusted. We had a very attentive and jolly waitress. The food was very tasty - the bolognese was one of the best I have ever tasted and the chocolate dessert and ice cream delicious. It is not automatically my first choice when I... More

Booked here for the first time before going to the cinema. The food was ok and reasonably priced. We are the seafood pasta and Risotto. The desserts were scrumpy. Three courses for under thirty pounds. The waiter was 'fabulous' and made the night. He was helpful, attentive and great fun. Dazzling Dynamic Diaz 😄.

I visited with a few friends for dinner/drinks. Disappointed with the service we received, small portions of bland food. My main was a creamy and mushroom pasta dish. Complete rip off. Woke up the next morning with a severe stomach ache and ended up vomiting. Never experienced anything like it. Stay AWAY!!

We visited Strada for the first time, after much debate as there are plenty of eating places to choose from and were not disappointed. The setting alongside the canal is superb and the Food was excellent, served by a lovely waitress who could not have been more helpful. We will definitely return when we are next in Reading.

We're twice in this restaurant, and i can definitely say that is not italian food, definitely different from italian cousine. The service it's good. Basically it's really expensive

Found ourselves in Reading for the day. Spotted Strada. Decided to go for set lunchtime menu. Choice was a bit limited but between the two of us we ordered 4 different things. Well surprised. Portions were good (no special menu mini portions) and food was great. Must admit I wasn't expecting it to be that good. Next time I'm in... More

The starter was disappointing, stodgy Ancini server in cold tomato sauce. The main was also really disappointing, sea bass, skin was soggy and slimy and the fish was too fishy/old, really not enjoyable. Server with a miserly portion of Tuscan potatoes. The table felt like it had just been crammed into the place with no real thought and we were... More
