Within the popular leisure resort at Cardiff Bay, Strada - Cardiff offers a bright, cosmopolitan setting. The sought-after outdoor dining area offers a relaxed setting, enhanced by the stunning sea views.

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.

    Good food but awful service. Booked a table and was seated straight away had to ask for menus after ten minutes and order. Then an hour later the table next to us were served less than 15 minutes after arriving. We asked two waiters what was going on and both failed to come back to us and ignored are repeated attempts to find out what was happening. Eventually after shouting, the first waiter stopped and offered to get the manager. She was very apologetic and offer a 50% discount and free drinks. Are food then arrived soon after followed by the mains. However we were then once again ignored are plates were left uncollected for nearly 20 minutes until i stopped the waiter bringing deserts (to the table who arrived 45 minutes after us) and asked "if we were required to take are one plates back to the kitchen" and i asked to speak to the manager again. The manager returned and in fairness offered it all free of charge including deserts, but we choose to leave as we had been there over 2 hours by this point. It was being ignored and the failure to apologize by the waiters which was the most annoying. There were other tables also having issues with mains being brought out before starters. I surprised such a chain has allowed such poor service from there staff.

    food was excellent, one of us said that the Caesar salad was exceptional. Attentive smiley staff.. one criticism we had was that the music was too loud, bearing in mind however that we are in the over 60s group !

    Decided to eat here after watching the matinee performance of Mamma Mia at the Millennium Centre. What a good choice, we decided on pizza which was very tasty, the staff were friendly and set ice excellent. Would definitely eat her again when we're next in Cardiff.

    Best thing about this restaurant was the staff. So friendly. We were met with a smil, even though we'd booked and were 15 minutes late. The starters were very tasty but unfortunately they decided to bring us our mains while we were eating the starters, twice! When we had finished our mains were cold. Then they took them away to cook a fresh mains and it was also cold.
    The staff were very apologetic, took the price off my main course, a £10 voucher and gave me a free pint which was very nice. My partners food the second time around was lovely. So I guess I was just unlucky.
