I don't know why I don't frequent this restaurant more often.

We decided to visit Stretta for a Birthday dinner with the family and it was magnificent. We all opted to have pasta's since there was a winter chill in the air and what better to warm you up with then a steaming bowl of pasta?

I opted for the Picanti which is a spicy mince pasta that comes with penne and it was delicious!

our waitron, Julia was phenomenal and went out of her way to make us feel welcome.


We'll definitely be visiting a lot more in future, Especially with all of there amazing deals.

Good atmosphere, excellent service, manager friendly and attentive. Pork belly very tasty according to hubby, huge plate of food, veg pasta tasty with a sweet taste. Opted for the best seller: chocolate fondant: mine tasted a bit burnt ( as if chocolate were melted in micro) , hubby's lived up to expectations. Stretta is always a winner with excellent value for money.

Hillcrest is a little out of our way and, while we had enjoyed the restaurant in its previous locality, our only experience of Stretta at its current address was mildly disappointing, so we haven't bothered to go back. Finding ourselves in the centre, mid-morning, a couple of days ago, we decided on a brunch. Both our choices from the breakfast menu were original, well cooked, nicely presented, and as far away from the Wimpy 2-rasher, small egg, half-tomato affair as you can imagine. I won't go into detail, but eggs, fried and poached, were cooked as requested, and bacon is Crispy with a capital C. A tip: even if your choice doesn't include rosti order an extra one on the side. It lifts a breakfast to new heights. Coffee is top-of-the-range as you'd expect in an Italian-themed place. Service was a little slow, and strangely, although we got a basket of goodies including sauces, butter and jam, there was no toast. The main meal had filled us anyway, and we're trying to avoid sugary stuff, so we didn't raise the issue, but it seemed odd.
This breakfast was good enough to lure us back for a main meal, soon. With the decline in both numbers and quality of lower-Highway eateries, it's good to know that Hillcrest has some decent options.

Stretta never disappoints! Service always first class. Enjoyed delicious mojitos and our free foccia before we tucked into main meal and I have to say. ...the pork belly was outstanding! Well done Stretta!
