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.

    Good service nice food the only thing that was not good was the heat in the dining area, very uncomfortable we asked for the aircon to be turned up but it didn't happen hence I will not be eating here again much too uncomfortable.

  • ((*** 30 March 2017 by David C from London

    This restaurant is getting lax. The menu gets more restricted and unimaginative every time I visit. The service was slow and haphazard as there were obviously too few staff. Without a 30% discount it would have been overpriced. In addition he toilets were disgusting. No I didn't complain, I'll vote with my feet.

    The food was nice and the staff were helpful and attentive, the only downside on this occasion was that not all of the mains came out at the same time, there was a good 10 minutes between the dishes, which meant we didn't all eat together. However, the staff were aware of the situation and offered a discount on food, which was appreciated.

    Food was fine but a little too much chilli in the sauce on the sea bass. Overpowered the fish. Everyone enjoyed their meals.
