Wow it was so busy for a Thursday night surely it was going to be great! But no unfortunately it was really rather bad. The starters were tiny (wish I had taken a picture!) Maybe they were cutting down on portion size incase they ran out or something! Then for the main I had a seafood pasta which was filled... More

An unplanned visit to the Strada at the Oracle. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal, reasonably priced with very friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely return next time we're in Reading.

Saturday lunch, 2 courses £10.95, food was lovely & so was the wine!! But what stood out was the service from 'Diaz' he had amazing customer service without being fake, fun & attentive. Could do the job with his eyes closed. Well done Diaz

Decent sized restaurant. Menu I thought was a little limited and no the selection o would expect from Strada. Staff were ok but I did feel they were constantly getting you to order more with the way they kept suggesting dishes all of which were the most expensive ones. Food was ok but the sea bass that I ordered was... More

Was my second time there, first time it was really nice, this time not great. Had a table at 8 Friday night and it was busy. Our table was close to the door and it was chilly at times. We waited 20 minutes to place our order and another 50(!) for our food (only mains) and then it wasn't that... More

I went there with my bf and one friend, we had for starters garlic bread, Italian bread to share, and squid... The garlic bread had Rosemary on top and pieces of garlic, that I don't personally don't like to eat, but after all doesn't have many flavour. Italian bread was ok and the squid was nice with very good sauce!... More

We haven't been to Strada in Reading for a while so decided to try it for lunch on a drizzly January day. The place was pretty deserted when we arrived unlike most of the neighbouring restaurants and maybe, just maybe this has something to do with how the food quality has fallen. Chicken ceasar appeared to be completely lacking in... More

Had a lovely meal here piping hot & nicely cooked & presented. It is a chain but good nevertheless. Would visit again if in the area.

We have visited many local Italian restaurants in this area but this one is the most unattractive one from all of them. Service is great, but the food is very bland, boring and disappointing. We would go back anytime to Strada in Newbury, but not to this one in Reading.

Tried Strada for the first time and ordered from the 3 course Christmas menu. Food was ok, not bad just nothing with a wow factor. What set the lunch apart was the service. Super waiter who made our lunch really special.

Thank Katrina B
