Very nice restaurant, great service and good food. Sits across the road from the lake so you get a great view of both the mountains and the lake.

La Strada hosted our rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding and we couldn't have been happier. The private room looked beautiful with the white linen tablecloths and flowers. It was raining at the time so we didn't get to enjoy the patio or lawn space,...More

Zeppo’s Meat Treat Pizza was delicious with lots of pepperoni, Italian sausage, meatballs, ham and 3 types of cheese. Yum! Their homemade balsamic salad dressing was the best I’ve ever had and the service was exceptional. We’ll definitely be back!

We are in the area frequently but had only visited this restaurant once before. We opted for Italian food when we were there last summer and it was good, but not “great.” This time we chose the ribs and the shrimp and scallops. Both were...More

Best lasagna ever! The menu wasn't lying when it said it was the house specialty. It was served with garlic knots which were pretty great too. At first I was disappointed that, for the price, it didn't come with soup or salad but now I'm...More

La Strada is a romantic Italian restaurant overlooking beautiful Lake Lure. Come visit us and surround yourself with plush mountains and a picturesque lake while you dine on our elevated covered terrace. Lake Lure received its name because it was said that the scenery and peacefulness lured you back time after time. We hope our rich family traditions and vintage recipes will have the same affect. In 1974 La Strada opened the first of several locations in Charlotte, North Carolina. Starting as a small family business specializing in New York style brick oven pizza and traditional Italian cuisine; word quickly spread about the great food and La Strada became a Charlotte favorite. After over 35 years of serving great food in Charlotte, La Strada and the original family members came to Lake Lure with their family recipes offering one of the most varied and unique menus in the area. There’s something special for everyone!
