Ambience goes a long way and this place just suits me, quiet and not shoulder to shoulder. No music or loud patrons when we were there on a Sunday evening. Had the fried calamari starter and risotto for the main. Both very good. My wife had the fried snapper that was one of the specials and it was great. They... More

This has been a favorite for a long time. Food is delicious, whether pasta or entree. Bread is nice and garlicky. Salad is fresh. Soup is delicious. One of the best bolognese sauces around.

We had our 2nd date here over 25 years ago. We have eaten here so many times over the last 25 years, some years it was every week. We moved 21 months ago & have been back a few times but it just isn't nearly as good. I just opened up my leftovers & decided I didn't want to eat... More

They've been around for years and I've been coming just as long. I miss the calamalone entrée. The seafood over pasta was very good with the pasta cooked perfectly. Unfortunately the marinara sauce could have used a little more flavor and they need to de-beard the mussels. I would like to see them update the wine list and run some... More

Enjoyed our dinner but was disappointed in the wait for our food. Very small parking lot that fills up fast.

Really old school Italian. Solid menu, friendly wine list and some nice daily specials. Been a solid choice for years, easy to see why. Regulars for a reason.

I have reviewed this place before, but after having 2 more excellent meals there recently I felt like I needed to give it another shout out. Wonderful Italian food. Some day I will try one of the specials because they sound divine but Caesar salad was excellent, great bread with olive spread and wonderful pasta with Marinara sauce.

Great food and the service is wonderful. Place is small and the tables are close together. Go when the soft shell crabs are in season as you won't be disappointed

La Strada Johnson Ferry Rd has been a long-established neighborhood gem. The food is consistently delicious, they've backed off the amnt of garlic in/on the food, and the experience is always rewarding when greeted by the owner. Perfect just the way it is.

We visited here with our friends who have been dining at La Strada since the '80's. They say it has been consistently good all these years. The trout was sooo good and they willingly substituted spaghetti with meat sauce as the side. Great salad with homemade dressing and cold lettuce! Good wine list to complete the meal. Nice atmosphere and... More
