About

Strada, Italian for “Street,” was inspired by the pure aromas, tastes, and craft of pizzas found on the streets and in the pizzerias of Italy. Strada provides an authentic Italian dining experience in a chic and unique atmosphere. Simple yet innovative dishes, homemade pasta and signature pizzas fill the refined menu crafted by Executive Chef Alan Merhar. A selection of fine Italian wines and liqueurs accompany a seasonal cocktail menu, and the welcoming staff creates the perfect ambiance from the exquisite meal to the exclusive nightlife. The Strada experience is unlike any other around.

I made a reservation through open table. They did not honor my reservation. In fact, apparently they don’t even serve food here any more. Their website is completely out dated. Horrible customer experience.

It's a really nice restaurant that turns into a club after 10 PM - good beverages, food, atmosphere, service if you are just looking for a nice dinner spot

Delicious food and nice decor. We just confused why the restaurant seemed to be closing at 10pm when it said open til 2am online, but then we found out they convert it to a club at 11pm.

Notwithstanding the fact that our reservation was accepted, when we got there, the door was locked and didn’t appear to be open!

Perfect for our group celebrating a bachelorette party! We were seated right away and the restaurant gifted us a bottle of champagne. I would highly recommend this place for the good food and atmosphere.

We had a reservation for 8pm. We were not aware of the fact that at 10pm they move all the tables to make the restaurant into a club for the evening. The waiter told us this at 9:30 that we had to be done by 10pm. He rushed us out and was rude about it too. We had a big group and he didn’t let us know that gratuity was included in our total when he divided the checks. I don’t think I will be coming back to this restaurant and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone either.

Honestly shook at how terrible this experience was. We have 7:45 reservations which the restaurant did not have prepped. Once arrived they put us at the bar high top to wait for our booth as they were waiting for a birthday to finish. 35 mins later and party cleared... no server. We flag the any service to get some info because we had a movie to attend, and the manager apologizes and offers a free app for the lack of any attention. Also mentions, that booths are for the parties. So we weren’t getting one...So I’m asking what are we waiting for then....Immediately after, server takes an appetizer order and 45 minutes later no appetizer or anyone to take a meal or beverage order. So after waiting an 1 hr and 15 minutes, we flag a worker again and ask what’s happening and then they try to take our order without explanation. With our movie tickets already purchased at 9:30, we could not afford the time to wait. All in all if your looking for that dinner/movie combo date, just make sure you don’t do dinner here unless you don’t buy your ticket preemptively. Seems like this place has a lot to figure out before, I would choose to walk in again. But If i could say one positive thing about this experience is that the location is so convenient to the Emagine. It’s just a shame that you’re not guaranteed service if you dare come here with a blind date. Ended up going to Lil Burger Bros after the movie ha.

It was just ok, we needed a table for 6 on short notice and they were able to accommodate. They were not very busy for a Saturday night at 7. The menu was minimal and not very exciting with only four entree's, but they say if you have a limited menu you are able to do everything perfectly. For the price of the dinner, $99 for two including a bottle of wine it was ok but I am not itching to go back.

The service was incredibly slow even though the restaurant was not busy. Food took over an hour to arrive and it was pizza and pasta. My rigatoni was overcooked. Noodles were mushy and falling apart. Not an enjoyable experience.

Food was great! Lots of pizza and pasta choices, with a couple of additional entrees and several apps. We were kind of rushing to get to a show, but they accommodated us. All the staff were very friendly. Loved the decor and ambiance of the restaurant.

The food was not good, the salmon smelled horrible and the greens from the salad were yellow 😂!
The waitress, tried her best. But this place’s food is simply horrible.

This place doesn't know whether it is a night club or restaurant but we were there at 730 on a Saturday and there were only a few other diners. I sense the crowd comes later. But, it doesn't matter. Our server hustled and was very attentive, food came quickly and my pizza was the best I've had in months! Short ribs were also good, as well as calamari. We will definitely be back!

Valentine’s night dinner for 2. Was very busy with many couples and groups out for the holiday. Not surprising that we waited at the bar 20 or so minutes for our table. Gave us the chance to start with specialty cocktails from Coco our bartender and later, our waitress. She was very helpful with choosing both drinks and food, and a very dynamic and fun personality. Had the bruschetta and the antipasto salad to start, then a pizza and a pasta dish. Everything was great. Many different people from Coco to other servers to managers checked in with us throughout the night to see how everything was going. Overall a really great evening. The noise level was a bit loud to call it a cozy valentines dinner, but we thought Strada was a great evening out.

This place is confusing - it's a restaurant/it's a club - just depends on time of day. We got there at 7 pm for dinner on a Friday night based on Open Table reviews and we were the ONLY ones in the restaurant. Casual attire was appropriate. The wait staff was very attentive. And the food was truly, shockingly good. (Didn't have high expectations based on Yelp reviews of the "Club.") Within our group we had ribs, salmon and different pizzas. Everyone was very, very happy with their meal. We would go back for the food! By the time we left at around 9:30 there were more people eating in the restaurant and they were starting to set up the club - promoter was there, table was set up to collect cover charge, etc. We were told we could stay for club time, but we would have to give up our big table! We didn't stay, so I can't speak to the place as a club, but if you are looking for a good meal at a reasonable price in a quiet environment - I would recommend.

Good atmosphere. I️ got the braised short rib. My food unfortunately wasn’t hot/warm when I️ got it. However, I️ still ate it and it was delicious. The short rib I️ was able to cut with a butter knife because it was so tender. I️ had the raspberry mojito with raspberry infused ice cubes. Very tasty. I️ definitely had a good overall experience regardless of the cold food.

I did need to change the reservation number from 8 to 11. I tried over and over again to modify it on open table, but without success. I called Strada and CoCo took care of it for me. Thanks CoCo!

Fabulous atmosphere, service and food! We loved the rotating round table in our booth which was a great way for the five of us to share all of our "make-you-own" pasta selections. Tony offered excellent wine recommendations. Will certainly go back again!
