Housed in the bustling Mailbox Shopping Centre, Strada Birmingham Mailbox serves authentic Italian fare in bright and spacious surroundings. Just opposite BBC Birmingham, the restaurant is within a 5-minute walk of the Alexandra Theatre.

Strada Italian restaurants are all about fresh, real Italian food. Made-from-scratch risottos, stone-baked pizzas, artisan ice cream, incredible Italian wines and coffee make up the Strada menu, and all meat and fish is cooked from fresh. A lengthy stock of premium ingredients includes higher welfare, grain-fed beef from Northamptonshire, found in Strada’s juicy taleggio burgers, and on a list of prime steaks.

Free Wi-Fi is offered throughout Strada restaurants, and cosy booths are the perfect setting for a cake-and-espresso pit stop. Not forgetting little foodies, the kids’ menu features miniature versions of delicious Italian classics.

There is plenty of parking space within the centre and Birmingham New Street Rail Station is just a 10-minute walk away from Birmingham Mailbox Strada.

    The food was good unfortunately the service was a big let down. Whilst I appreciate the staff gave us time to order and eat they took so long to see to us at each stage that we ended up having to call them to the table to ask for things like plates being cleared, dessert menus and even to have our dessert order placed. One main out of 6 was clearly forgotten about because when the 5 mains arrived at the table, the waitress appeared to be surprised about the additional one. She came to tell us it was on the way but only arrived once we had almost finished the mains that had initially arrived so it had clearly been forgotten and was cooking whilst we were eating the initially mains but this was never conveyed to us. We also wanted more drinks during the meal but no one came to ask us and by the time they came over we had finished our mains.

    Was going really well until the main courses arrived 1 of the meals was overcooked very dry chicken breast and mushrooms sauce was dry no appeal to eat it at all. Very disappointing as we arranged for the couple to visit us in Birmingham for a change instead of where they live in Derby.

    Great food and service would definitely go back.

    Very nice setting. Lovely relaxed atmosphere inside and very nice staff. The food was excellent too.

  • (**** 15 October 2016 by Tom Marlow from Birmingham

    The service was awful. Our mains came out when we hadn't even had our starters. Them our mains took an hour to come out. The food was below par, the chicken on my girlfriend's pasta dish was overcooked and dry. It seemed like they had too many tables on for the number of staff available. Very disappointing.

    Great place for lunch. The set menu, 3 courses for £13.95, is extremely good value.

  • ((((* 20 September 2016 by Martin Reynolds from Birmingham

    Nice clean restaurant, service was very good and friendly. The food was served in good time and was well presented, hot and tasty. The only negative is the menu, for me the number of pasta dishes was limited and would have liked more choice.
