    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.

    Dining at La Strada is truly dining at its finest because the food is great, the ambience elegant and the service outstanding. Prices are moderate so the value is truly there. Its conveniently located on Rt 10 and makes you feel that you, the client, matters.

    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.

    As always the food was delicious, however this time we were seated right under a speaker and although the pianist was very good and had a pleasant voice, the volume was way too loud. We could not even have conversation at the table with the other couple we were with. To make matters worse, as impossible as it may seem, the singer stopped her repertoire at least 8 to 10 times (no exaggeration) to sing happy birthday. It became very annoying and took away from the classy and romantic ambience of the restaurant. Perhaps singing by a few wait staff at a table would suffice instead of annoying other diners with the singing of happy birthday coming through the speaker system.

    On the positive side, portions are a good size, the food was hot & well paced & the live entertainment was a very nice touch! They accepted our late arrival with grace (due to bad weather) and held our reservation (note however there were many empty tables due to snow). The parking lot was not well plowed but there was valet service available. On the downside, service was not professional, reaching across the table, plates taken from wrong side, & attitude was not the best. The ambiance is dated and my menu was dirty. The food was just OK, they julienne the veggies thus they are overcooked & not distinctive, lacking overall flavor.

    We have had the pleasure of eating at La Strada many times over the past few years. We entertain our clients there and even had my husband's 65th Birthday there a few years ago. November 29th was my husband's 67 th birthday so we took his daughter to dinner and it was wonderful. The owner and staff made us feel very welcome. As an extra touch, they had a singer/pianist who I knew many years ago. I am glad that Donna will be playing on Friday and Saturday evenings. We look forward to our next evening.

    Had dinner last week at La Strada. The ambiance, service and overall setting were as I had expected from previous visits. It really is a very nice restaurant. I was a little disappointed in my dinner, though. The Sole Francaise was rather tasteless and didn't seem as fresh as prior visits. It could have been due to multiple large parties being hosted the night I was there. Not sure, but was a little disappointed that the food was not up to their normally very high standards.

    We were very happy with the choice of La Strada for the birthday celebration Started out with Melenzane Ripiene as the app, good sauce and eggplant was perfect. The side salad was surprising good, Very fresh with a nice dressing. Our entree were Chicken Parmigiana and Chilean Sea bass. The Sea Bass was excellent, prepared with asparagus & sun dried tomatoes in a dill cream sauce. Chicken Parmigiana was also very good. Nice piece of chicken with very tasting cheese.

    At La Strada you can always count on a great meal. The food is consistently fresh, creative and plated with personality. The wait staff is attentive and always willing to please. This is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. The restaurant can accommodate large and small parties. They have valet parking and a piano player on the weekends. We recommend La Strada because here the customer comes first they aim to please.
