Food was amazing!!! Hope to try their dinner one day. Very good service too! Be it the servers’ knowledge or timing each dish was served. Looking forward to dine here again!
Awesome!! Great service and beautiful plate presentation Good for making a celebration special.
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.
I used to say that La Strada had the best carbonara in town. After our visit yesterday, I’m not confident that I can say the same thing again. For a reputable restaurant, I’m quite disappointed in their dipped quality upon returning from a long renovation hiatus. The noodles were shockingly quite soggy .. Whatever happened to al dante? And it was just too cheesy, making it quite impossible to enjoy the silky smoothness I used to experience before. The texture was wrong, the flavour was wrong. Any attempt of making it fragrant with truffle oil was wasted by the excessive amount of cheese sprinkled on it. Don’t get me wrong, it was still ‘above average’ pasta. But c’mon. It’s La Strada. You don’t merely expect passable pasta. They can definitely do better than this.
The renovation gave the restaurant a modern, cozy and vibrant feel. The menu has a slight change and the cooking has improved. However, service wasn't there for me. Our mains took quite some time to arrive. For estimation purposes, a group who had ordered their food while we were finishing our starters, were half-way through their mains by the time ours came. I wouldn't have minded the wait if we were told in advance it would take this long (may be the beef is more complex to cook compared to pasta, which was what that group were all having), assured that the food was coming or at least given more water. I felt totally ignored and had a mind to just walk out since we were invisible to the servers, who were not that busy (restaurant was not that crowded by then.) Also, since the table was small for 2 people to be sharing 2 mains and 1 side, instead of requesting or asking, the server just slide my phone away to make space for the side. (Yes, I would have take the liberty of moving my phone without asking but the waiting made my mind dull.) Also right next to my left hand was the side which was incredible uncomfortable. I would suggest if you are sharing your mains with your partner, not to have the separate plates that the server would give you since there is literally no place if you order anything more than 2 mains. I really loved this place. The food is good and the ambiance is amazing but the service has been going down for me so I won't be going back anymore.
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!
