We used to go here quite regularly but this was our first visit for 12 months or so. New menu looked good and garlic bread arrived quickly and hot. However, we waited about 40-45 minutes for our mains after waitress admitted that she hadn't put two of our orders through the till. When our orders did arrive the 'meatballs in a focaccia' looked and tasted as though they had been waiting around for the two pasta dishes to be made. So dry and chewy that even our 11 year old was unimpressed! Pasta dishes were supposed to be very spicy with chilli etc but was as bland as could be. Mixed salad should be reported to trade descriptions as I think I was able to locate just a couple of cherry tomatoes sliced in half to decorate some very sad looking shredded lettuce and strands of onion. We were asked how we found the food so we said it was remarkably average and we were given a very generous discount. To be honest that is the only positive thing I have to say about our meal.......aside from the garlic bread.

Walked passed about 7.30 on a Saturday evening so we decided to go in for a pizza, the place was half empty, to our amazement we were turned away by the waitress saying they were full, so we went elsewhere and will not go back.

What a shame this branch has gone downhill - we used to eat here a lot - the last 2 times have been very disappointing, and when doing the online survey the Strada reply was automated trying to sound like a personal letter - PLEASE get back to being a good restaurant again!

If you have never been to Strada and loathe chain restaurants then it's a pleasant surprise. The food is of a reasonable quality and is served quickly, they maintain a good standard of food. The service is good and they are happy to adjust to individual requirements and are generally very helpful. The portions are reasonably generous without being overwhelming! Central location close to the central car park and the city centre is useful and the menu is varied enough to cater for most companions, young or old!

Really enjoyed our visit here, used our Tastecard which made already good value excellent value. Despite being very busy the service was first class and the food excellent. Like so many chains I wish the wine list was more imaginative but that is me being picky (again). Great evening, great food
