About La Strada

Please note that tables will be held for only 15 minutes after the reservation time. Please bear this in mind when making your reservation.

After being renovated and restyled into a charming, laid back trattoria-style Italian restaurant, La Strada is once again back on the block at the Shaw Centre serving up some of Singapore’s best Italian cuisine. Popular signature dishes (and some new additions) stand alongside Italian wines provided by La Strada’s friends at Caveau Wines & Bar, completing the picture of dining as it’s done in rural Italy. Set close to Orchard station down Scotts Road, alongside La Strada’s sibling restaurant Les Amis (the flagship for the Les Amis Group), this is an unmissable destination for fans of authentic Italian dining.

See below for La Strada's special menus!

Check out La Strada's set lunch menu here!

Pick any restaurant in the Les Amis Group’s portfolio and you can reliably bet that it will be a superlative representative of the international cuisine its kitchen creates. La Strada is no exception, blessing Singapore’s Shaw Centre with a prime example of Italian food and hospitality. Close to Orchard station down Scotts Road, La Strada is an oasis of rural Italian peace and quiet in the middle of the city. Styled along the lines of Italian trattoria, the decor is rustic, with Tuscan wood panelling, tables, and chairs, and comfortable banquettes lining walls hung with evocative Italian curios. It’s a setting that encourages guests to engage with dining as a social experience, a short holiday, and a chance to catch up with friends and family.

La Strada’s menu has been put together by head chef Dalton Fong, a veteran of the Les Amis stable with stints at Bistro du Vin and Au Jardin under his belt. Well versed in continental European cookery, Fong’s signature dishes include a classic carbonara, crab meat pasta (sure to be a hit in seafood-mad Singapore), chicken cacciatore, and roasted veal loin. In collaboration with Caveau Wine Bar, just around the corner from La Strada’s Scotts Road restaurant, Fong’s authentic Italian recipes come complemented by a stellar range of fine Italian wines that run the gamut from whites and reds through to sweet and sparkling. Singapore city workers and visitors in the vicinity of Orchard and the Shaw Centre can also revel in La Strada’s affordable lunch set menus, with a choice of three courses and an espresso to finish.

Seasonal special truffle tortellini with cream sauce was heavenly, as was the lemon liquer tiramisu. Highly recommend going for lunch as the price is more reasonable.

The ambience was great, and the service was amazing. We ordered the three course meal, and although it was a bit expensive, it was definitely worth it. Great pasta!

Great food and wine. Appreciated the truffle dishes. Wonderful soufflé (made me break my diet of no sweets!!). And the Barolo's and Babaresco's were a joy - didn't cost an arm and a leg... 👍🏻 Service also fantastic with friendly, smiling service staff. Makes for an excellent combo for a Friday night!👏

Restaurant was cosy and reminiscent of European restaurants. Service was warm and friendly - the youthful staff are always with a smile. We like that the staff were trained in service - could tell from the way they set the table, served the dishes (which we requested for sharing) and cleared the empty plates after. Maybe one could say that this is something expected for an Italian restaurant, but you can't really be sure in this day and age where manpower is hard to come by. Short wait for food. We thoroughly enjoyed the scallops, fancied the tasty squid ink risotto and found the lobster aglio oglio alright - a bit too oily. Initially thought that the serving was on the small side but we were very satiated by the end of the meal (1 appetiser, 2 mains) and decided to skip the dessert. Side notes: 1. If you are looking for somewhere for a quiet meal and conversation, it may be a bit difficult here as the hard finishings were conducive for loud voiced reverberating throughout the room - we had the good fortune of not meeting too noisy a crowd and it was already on the loud side, so we can't imagine if there were just 1 person who laughs a little too loud. 2. If you intend to have a surprise birthday celebration, would be good to call the restaurant directly to enquire if they can plan something. I left a note in my booking that this meal was for a birthday celebration and while I didn't expect them to sing a song or provide a cake, it would have been a nice touch to just wish the birthday girl 'Happy Birthday'.

Hi, I chose La Strada over the comments that I read. It was for my hubby BD dinner. The staffs welcome us warmly. And we chose the coursed according her recommendation and it was the good choice. Total we had 3 courses, White Wine and Truffle Vanilla Ice-Cream with Chocolate Coating as the dessert. We didn't have any idea how will be the food like as it was our first experience on Italian Food. But Hey it was amazing. We fell in love with the foods. OMG! Worth of money and I can say that my treat for my Hubby BD's was a total success.

The overall experience is good. However, the oysters (2 for $14) were too salty. We made a feedback on the oysters to one of the staff, but he commented that it was due to the salt water. My partner and I have tasted many fresh oysters in several restaurants and markets and we know that the oysters and its' juices are definitely not the kind of salty as we'd tasted this time in La Strada. We had oysters as well (3 for $24) the previous time we visited La Strada and they were delicious. This time round, it's way too salty.

Great! That was what my two sons and I felt. My older boy, especially, adores beef. And when he gives two thumbs up, that means a whole lot. My all time favourite at La Strada is the Minestrone soup. I rather reluctantly shared it with my son this time. The vegetables are wholesome and fresh and the dish gently wakes up the senses. I ordered the Chopinno and the experience was yummy, subtle blend of an array of seafood. It is a nice cosy restaurant.. important to make early reservations. My sons' only complaint was that the wait for their food was a little too long. But it was worth it!

Brought my friend here for her birthday dinner! Recently back from italy and had a craving for italian, so decided to try La Strada! The carbonara as recommended by many reviewers was delightful! The runny egg that coated the al dente spaghetti was so good! :) the tiramisu which was supposed to be traditional didnt sit too well with me. I preferred it without the chocolate balls within and i still prefer cocoa powder over chocolate shavings (sorry!). It wasnt bad tasting, just not as delightful as i thought. Maybe i should have tried the limoncellp version ;) Overall the service was awesome and i loved the restaurant's ambience :))

Very good food, in a friendly atmosphere. In addition to the normal A La Carte Menu their was a Truffle Menu (The White Alba Truffles are in season), and it was very fairly priced. Overall, delicious food. Although there appeared to be two groups having Birthday parties, our group of 4 was attended to in efficiently and in a friendly manner. The wine list offers a good range from reasonably priced to expensive. Each time we stay more than one night in Singapore, we try to go to La Strada.

Complimentary 5 breadsticks served at the Start of the meal! What a treat. Had the buratta for starters, it looked small but it was just nice for 2. It came with fresh and sweet cherry tomatoes, good serving of parma ham that was not too salty which is great, plus a few more breadsticks! For the mains, i ordered the breaded veal with mixed greens and the spanner crab pasta. The veal was a huge piece!!! Cooked well, very tender, served with a tomato based sauce and a lemon. Not bad overall. What i really loved was the pasta. Every strand was coated and flavourful. A must try. For dessert, a tiramisu that was light and creamy... with the ladyfinger that was soaked well, it wasnt mushy. The mascarpone cream sat well above and below the biscuit. Topped with chocolate shavings and some coffee chocolate beans. It was a delight! Service was awesome too! Thanks for the wonderful experience at La strada! Will definitely be back!

We've been to La Strada before and have always been happy and satisfied with the service and diningexperience there. La Strada is calm and cosy, the staff are attentive and courteous and they have a great menu and daily specials. Great place to get away from the crowd in Orchard Road. Love it!

Sitting at the back of Shaw Centre, La Strada is a hidden gem in the town. We had seared scallop as appetizer then I had Wagyu Steak for main while my partner had her favorite seafood risotto then we end our dinner with a panna cotta. All the foods are nice starting from appetizer to dessert. The staffs are also friendly and always serve with a smile. We would definitely come back again.

I had a wonderful time at La Strada. Ben knew that the dinner was a birthday celebration for my boyfriend, he surprised us with welcome drink and a gift at the end of the dinner which was really sweet of him. Food is good! We highly recommend the asparagus with bacon. My boyfriend love the squid ink risotto as well!

We had our xmas gathering dinner at La Strada, Menu that we ordered are carbonara $28, piadina (kind of thin pizza ) $28, Tagliolini Al Granchio (aglio olio) $34 , tiramisu $16. The foods were awesome, quite special in term of Italian food available in SG market, but unfortunately this restaurant don't serve pizza. Most of the items are main courses eg steak, chicken, pork. Even pasta they also have limited selection (less than 5 choices?) Atmosphere were great with excellent customer services. Waitresses were able to attend us quickly and in good attitude. They kept on refilling the ice water and picking up the empty plates once we were done. But the foods r a little bit overpriced, and small potion. Even we 3 ladies ordered three main dishes + one dessert, but it didn't seem enough. I don't think I will return to the restaurant again as the price vs quality/portion does not worth it for second chance. Just good for first trial.

I went to La Strada for set lunch and it was a quick fix. The menu is extensive and the service was fast. One issue I had with my group was that the noise within the restaurant can get a little loud when everyone started talking hence, the management should look into that to improve on overall dining experience. Other than that, all is good!

the environment is very cozy, service was great and overall pricing I find to be quite alright. the pear and blue cheese salad that I had with a bowl of carbonara and a cassata for dessert was good for me. someone ordered the steak, which was done to perfection. and served with mushrooms. the veal that was for 2 people to share was also very good. It was a piece of chop with the bone in, meat portion flatened and there was cheese and ham wrapped inside, which was delicious. the dessert of poached pears and limoncello tiramisu was very delicious. we had ordered set lunches which was value for money and now that we have seen chef specials available we will be back to try them too!

We've started going to La Strada more frequently now. The ambience is nice, the service good, and the food authentic and value for money. the only bugbear is the charging for bread which in other restaurants usually would be part of the experience and offering. Nevertheless, the bread is good, and enjoyed by us, so it's really a minor bug bear!

The place is filled with warmth. From the moment we stepped in, we were greeted with smiles. The atmosphere was cosy and the service level given by the staff were great. When they could not accede to my request for a customized dessert for my wife's birthday which was promised prior when I called in earlier, the staff made up for it by offering us a delightful (and delicious) alternative at their own initiative. The food was great too and when we left, my wife was surprised at the door with tarts that not only left a sweet taste in our lips, but also a sweet memory of the dining experience.

had the 3 course set lunch which I felt was quite worth it to sample what the restaurant has to offer. capesante (pan seared scallops) were great. polpo (prawn and baby octopus in tomato sauce) was flavourful and the sauce was great with bread. carbonara pasta was great as well with the cream not too heavy. aglio olio linguine with vongole and handmade sausage ball was well done. By the way, both pastas were done al-dente. for dessert, we had the panna cotta (made using goat's milk) and yoghurt gelato. Comes with 2 coffee to end off the meal. Overall, I won't mind coming back to the restaurant for other dishes.

Set lunch was great! food came quickly, nice and hot! Served in little pans, stew lamb, octopus, mussels, carbonara were all good. Scallops were nice but 3/4 of the plate is veg. Place was full and the service staff worked extra hard to please even on a Monday. Celebrated a friends birthday, nice touch dessert came with a candle. Can get a bit noisy so would not recommend if you are looking for a peaceful lunch. But if you your looking for unpretentious Italian food in a cosy place, this is it.

Food was great! Service staffs are friendly and helpful. Ambience is casual and good for dates, friends or family. For 3 of us, we ordered 5 starters, 3 mains and 2 desserts. Needless to say, we were very full. We love the starters. For the mains, we ordered Oxtail, Gnocchi and Pork ribs. The first 2 were fantastic but the pork was a bit dry and hard to swallow. The desserts are great! Overall, we will visit this restaurant again.

Food was great, portion size was generous and just nice when you added all 3 courses together. For starters, got the burrata (so worth the additional $6!) and vongole, carbonara for mains and the goat's milk pannacotta. If you don't like goats milk I'd say to give that a miss although I will say that the kickback of the flavour wasn't as strong as, say, feta cheese. Definitely coming back here again!

Nice ambience, great food and very attentive service! I had indicated that this was a birthday celebration and the staff took the effort to give us a nice corner table, a birthday candle and decoration for our dessert and a box of fruit tarts for the birthday girl :)) The food was yummy too and I loved the vongole starter and the crab pasta!

However full you are from the delicious antipasti, primi piatti and secondi piatti, you must get the soufflé! It's a mix of matcha and coffee and chocolate with alcohol thrown in. It says it's for 2 - just order it. Even the "I don't take sweets" person (like me) found it irresistible! Served hot in a cast iron oval "pot", its friendly and welcoming!

Food was really good, and service was excellent. The restaurant called upon receiving the e-confirmation to let me know the booking had been secured, and again the day before the reservation to confirm. I'd asked for a cake as we were celebrating my friend's birthday, the restaurant arranged for a tiramisu and they pulled off the surprise so smoothly. Will definitely be back!

We come here a lot, at least once every 2 months on average. But this time, on Good Friday, the carpaccio was really disappointing. The meat used to be pink in colour and there s was sweetness in the meat. I suspect they have changed the quality of the meat this time. There was 1 piece that was a little stale and the colour of the whole thing was darker than usual. There was no more sweetness in it. I wonder what has happened. Cost again? I know this happens a lot in SG. My main and dessert were just about as good as before, though I think they've slightly reduced the amount of prosciutto used.

Had the 3 course set lunch, food was excellent with generous servings. Service was good but could be better and more attentive as I was there with my toddler, had to ask for children utensils before it was given. No complaints though as the utensils were served promptly. Will go back for the delicious food.

Honestly feel La Strada wasn't really worth the price. The restaurant doesn't really compare to the price on the menu. My crab pasta was just a simple aglio olio while my partner's squid ink risotto was way too salty. With appetisers alone priced at $30+, I feel you can get a better experience elsewhere.

Excellent food and ambience. Service was discreet and friendly. The waitress immediately offered to split our 2 appetizers, 1 pasta and 2 mains into a four-course meal. The appetizer and pasta portions are not very large , but the mains are full-sized. We had no space for dessert after (we shared an affogato though 😜). $200+. A bit pricey but delicious.

A cosy small restaurant at the heart of all the shopping. Service is personal and fast. The food is great and portion is right. I love the coconut mango creme brûlée which is today's special. Finally the price is affordable. It will be perfect if the restaurant is bigger and more privacy. Will definitely come back again.

Each course was delicious, good service. Minus-ed 1 point for a strange cappucino they brought me which was "chilled", i.e. it wasn't just left in the open until it became "room temperature", it was literally chilled like it came from a fridge... they fixed it straightaway, though it makes me wonder where that coffee came from though...

The restaurant called to confirm my reservation and on my last minute request for a birthday surprise for my guest, they gladly obliged. Great food for the set lunch menu and service. I guess they need to update their menu on their website though, as an item listed as the starter was no longer available.

It was great! Good quality food, friendly staff, nice ambience. We had the burrata as a stater and different pasta dishes as the main course. We also had a bottle of shiratz from Australia. It was value for money. My lamb pasta was delicious.
