Housed in the busy Oracle Shopping Centre, Strada Reading offers an extensive Italian menu in a comfortable, modern setting. The restaurant boasts scenic views of the River Kennett and an outside seating area, perfect for al fresco dining.

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.

Reading Strada provides delicious Italian cuisine to tired shoppers who can watch the chefs at work in the open kitchen.

    Disappointing to have a hot meal served in a cold plate.

    Hi! We went to Strada in Reading yesterday for a dinner. I ordered salmon dish for a main and my husband ordered risotto. My guess is that the waiter pressed a wrong button on the system or there was a mistake in the kitchen and my main arrived with a sea bass instead. The waiter apologised and they cooked the correct order for me, which was ready in about 15 min. By this time my husband had almost finished his meal. I do appreciate that mistakes do happen during busy service, so we did not make much fuss. Also, we had a voucher for 30% off mains and did not feel like asking for another discount. However, on reflection, I think a good customer service in this situation would be perhaps to offer me a glass of wine, whilst waiting or maybe to offer me a free desert. Surely, there is something that the restaurant could have done to make up for the delay of the correct order. Mistakes do happen, but this is not a good way to treat customers. I do not think that we will be back any time soon.

    Good service, and decent (if not expensive for what it was) food. Unfortunately was seated by the front door so fairly chilly. Children next to me were very badly behaved. Other than that nice atmosphere, but very loud!

    We had the set menu which was really nice. Food was very well presented. Waitress was friendly helpful.

    Great staff and good food on our first visit to Strada. So much so my wife took a friend there for cheerup treat two days later. Look forward to our next visit

    The meal was for a friends birthday and we all loved the food and our waitor (Diaz) was amazing! He made sure we always had what we needed and he made my friend's birthday very special.

    I used to had fav dish there. But they made the menu far worse comparing to last year. Dried up canoed seabass fish with 4 leaves of rocket and 4 tiny squers of potatoes ... My boyfriend ordered be told he cannot have it as kitchen is not proud of size of above mentioned lamb.... At the end of this experience we waited 20min+ as card machine was out of order. Will not return there.
