Returned to La Strada again this weekend on our yearly pilgrimage to Bournemouth with 4 other couples and what another fantastic meal we had, all 10 of us can only have good things to say about the service, the ambiance and of course the fab food. Although not the cheapest place in town in our opinion well worth the money.... More

A group of five were looking for a pre-show meal on a Sunday evening. Unfortunately our favourite Valentino's was busy so we went across the road to La Strada. We were advised on entering that they were short staffed and service may be a bit delayed. In practice service was excellent and very prompt, it must be exceptional when they... More

After looking online at the menu we decided to eat here because of some of the seafood dishes, unfortunately some of the fish dishes weren't available that night (halibut or Swordfish) but the rest of the menu made up for it as it was far larger variation. The restaurant is quite big but it divided off with little/large areas so... More

Food was excellent. I ordered the chicken done in white wine with mushroom with sautéed potatoes. The chef brought it out and offered us vegetables. All cooked beautifully. The first bottle of Sauvignon was good but I would avoid the house white wine as it was revolting. One waiter was polite another one was not very welcoming and didn't look... More

Sorry but misled by good reviews on Trip Advisor. Maybe too many old reviews but we were very disappointed. It's a old rather worn out sort of place. Food was overpriced and any half decent Italian chef would be embarrassed by its so so quality. Service was slow despite it not being that busy. My 'chefs' special was a small... More

A lovely warm welcoming atmosphere. We ordered our drinks which came quickly plus a dish of olives, shortly after our meal orders taken. Starters ordered included caprese salad,... More

We used this restaurant for the first time and if we are to return to Bournemouth would use again. We had our meal early. We like to dine like this as we find we are always served well this way. The property is interesting. We learned that it can accommodate 140 covers. It is a bit twee and dated. Has... More

The menu was varied with plenty of choice. The meal was served quickly and was obviously freshly prepared and not just warmed up. The service was friendly, quick and very professional. I will definitely be going back
