    Celebrating two birthdays and wanted somewhere special. La Strada was perfect! Service was attentive but not hovering. Food was delicious and well presented. My daughter had the cannoli and said it was the best she ever had. I had zabaglione which was made fresh table side and was amazing. We will definitely visit again.

    We've been coming to La Strada for the past 25 years, but we have not visited for several years. We returned last Saturday for our 28th anniversary. Vincenzo remembered us as we walked through the front door. It was like a homecoming. He is a great guy with a fabulous restaurant! We were seated at a terrific table with live piano music playing in the background. The food was outstanding, service was perfect. After dinner we asked for Cappuccino but no dessert -- the food was too good! Our waiter brought the cappuccino with homemade biscotti, then returned a few minutes later with a dessert plate that was hand decorated on the rim: "Happy Anniversary", ice cream, fresh strawberries & a single lit candle. La Strada is a class act.

    Went to this restaurant for the first time this week. The dining area was kind of dark and it needs updating. It seemed like they get a lot of the elderly locals. Service was so-so and the same with the food. What bothered me the most was leaving the restaurant and seeing our waiter smoking in front of the entrance of the restaurant speaking with someone. Having to walk through that blowing dirty smoke was not good. Doesn't say much for this restaurant.

    Food was wonderful. Our server Adam was great and very sensitive to the fact that we had an 8 year old dining with us. He even helped our daughter sing happy birthday to her Mom. I had the Bronzino special, it was great. Wide choice of appetizers and entrees. Quite atmosphere very nice for a quiet dinner for two. Prices fit the quality and portion size of the menu items and specials.

    We had a party of 6. We were greeted immediately, the service was impeccable, and the food was delicious. Our guests were from Hunterdon County and can't wait to come back for another memorable meal. You know a meal is great when people are still talking about it days or weeks later. Looking forward to many more delicious meals there.

    This was our second time at La Strada and the food was very close to food in Italy . The difference this time was the staff. Mostly aloof and not very attentive or friendly. The host barely speaks to you while seating you. Last time we had a lovely seasoned waiter and a young man from Italy make our Zabaglione. Both were welcoming, friendly, attentive and made us feel that they appreciated us being there personally. That made all the difference. You want to feel the warmth of the Italuan culture and that was lacking this time.

    The food was fantastic and the service was impeccable. The dining area was a little loud and that detracted a bit from the intimate feel I was hoping for, but my wife and I still had a great time. Also, even though I made my reservation through OpenTable, had it confirmed and received an email about it the day before, they didn't have my reservation in their book when we arrived. Fortunately they were able to seat us anyway.

    The staff are friendly and well versed in the menu. My husband is gluten free and they accommodated him with no problem and were knowledgable about gluten free needs. I wanted scrimp francese which was not on the menu although chicken francese was and they graciously made it for me and it was delicious and light . The zabaglione made at the table was a delight. We are very happy we discovered La Strada !

    We have been to Lastrada a few times. This time we got there 15 minutes early and the bar was packed with a party so no big deal we will wait in the lobby. The problem was apparently the owner was shorted on a rental so we had to listen to him drop f bombs to the vendor. Then when we were seated the food was ok but the server seemed to be bothered with the fact he had to serve our table of only two. This was our favorite restaurant until this visit. I do not know if we will give this another opportunity.

    We had frequented La Strada when it first opened, and somehow just never made it back. Fast forward some twenty odd years and we're wondering where we've been. We had made a reservation and were quickly seated. The server was friendly and competent, and the service was quick - almost too quick. Got a feeling that we were being a little rushed. We ordered from the price fixed menu and were pleased to see the number of choices among appetizers, entrees, and desserts. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. Our cousin who is a died in the wool New Yorker, gave it the ultimate praise - this could be a New York restaurant. We will not let another twenty years go by!

    My wife and I have not been here in a long time. The food was ok but, not great. The service was fair but being it was Mother's day, I did not expect top notch service. This place is probably one of the few restaurants within the area that is decent in food. The food on this date was just ok at best. Based on past experiences, I would consider coming back again but it would not be my first choice.
