Our party of six had a quiet table in a brightly lit room with wine racks as the décor. From appetizer to salad, to soup, to entre the lunch was excellent and very authentic Italian food. Of particular note were the stuffed mushroom appetizer, the stuffed crab claw appetizer, the spinach and egg soup, the salmon Picatta, the grilled Cajun spiced tuna, the rigatoni Bolognaise. Our server was very experienced but was a bit argumentative with the guests over special requests which took away from the experience. Wines by the glass are plentiful over many varieties. I would definitely try this place again.

Good restaurant, consistently good food. This is a very busy restaurant, I would recommend reservations definitely. The fish is always delicious, specials often have Bronzino style. The red sauce is very tasty. And they also make magnificent French Martinis!

This gem of an Italian restaurant is located in a tired strip mall - but persevere - leave the car with the valet - and enjoy one of the better Italian meals on Long Island. Veal Chop Valdestano is magnificent - the Osso Bucco just melts in your mouth - but look around the menu -they are an amazing restaurant to get fish in as well...and move past the shrimp dishes - try the Swordfish Marechiara or a magnificent grilled baby octopus appetizer..... A better than average RED wine selection and a meal that ends with some awesome dolce... Cafe La Strada is worth searching out...you will be in for a great meal...

Cafe La Strada is a must if you love Italian Food. They do not miss a beat. If it is not one of the specials, of which there may be over 20, they will make your request to order. Just name it, it is yours. Old style cooking with very impeccable service. Hidden behind an very low keys store from just off LIE at Rte 111 Southbound. EXCELLENT Food, Sauce, Pasta and the rest are just why you go out to dine. They have it all. Upscale but FUN atmosphere.

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating our mothers birthday. The service was fantastic, the wine was great and the food and menu phenomenal. Can't say enough nice things. The only negative was the valet parking attendant was very rude when I wanted to park my own car. But our excellent waiter assured me he would have a word with him. Very pleased and looking forward to going back again soon!
