Opening hours
Open from 11:30 to 23:00 Monday to Saturday, and 11:30 to 22:30 on Sunday.

Next to the Vue Cinema in the busy Lakeside Shopping Centre, Strada Lakeside delights shoppers with a wide range of Italian dishes. A large outdoor dining area on The Boardwalk offer al fresco dining with beautiful views across Alexandra Lake.

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.

With plenty of on-site parking, Lakeside Strada is perfect for a delicious Italian meal after a busy day of shopping.

    Attentive staff
    Food was nice and well presented
    It is what it is - a well priced nice place to eat
    Nice ambience although a little loud if you sit centrally, best to get a corner or side table
    Didn't feel rushed and liked the waiters method of telling us to turn our menu over when we were ready to order, both at the beginning and before dessert ordering. He said by us doing this they wouldn't bother us until we were ready.

    Food nice, smallish portions but good tasting. Service appalling! Not especially busy yet never saw the waiter. Plates waited to be collected for a good 15 minutes, not offered any deserts or coffee, waited another 20 minutes for waiter to come over so can get the bill but he never came so gave up and asked someone else. No apology from anyone.

    We had a lovely meal, I had a Rissotto Verdure which was very nice, but there was far too much olive oil covered over the top of the spinach. I ate the meal as it was a lovely taste but I would have preferred less oil on top.

    It was fine. Asked for extra caramelised onions on the burger, definitely not worth the extra £1.00. Got the smallest portion of soggy onions that were definitely not caramelised. Slow service on a not particularly busy night.
