We visited early evening and asked for a table for 3. There was lots of space in the restaurant with many tables free and despite asking to sit at a quiet table, we were shown to a table right in the middle of the restaurant. We asked to sit in a quieter spot at the side but received a mumbled explanation about how they (the staff) wanted to make it (the restaurant, presumably) look better so we would have to sit in the middle. We remained standing as the waitress promptly disappeared - we assumed she'd gone check if we could sit where we wanted - but after waiting for what seemed like an age, she didn't return! We walked out, passing her and other staff standing around by the till chatting. We only went there as we had a discount voucher emailed to us - in fact, we're bombarded with offers from Strada. Now I can see why the online arm has to try so hard - pity the staff in the restaurant aren't a little more communicative and accommodating. We enjoyed a great meal just down the road in Salisbury at Pizza Express where the food was good and the staff were friendly.
