* [[RayM/Reviews/Strada|RayM's review]]
Strada offers an enticing menu with plenty of choice, including pasta dishes, pizza, risotto, salads, and meaty main courses. I opted for two items from that day's specials, a tuscan bean soup (hearty and delicious) followed by spaghetti with prawns, cherry tomatoes, chilli and garlic. The food was excellent, and the service attentive without being intrusive. If I had to find fault, it would be that there was a slightly longer delay than I would have liked between starter and main course.

Being a work day,
I didn't pay much attention to the wine list, opting for water and a glass of house red (there were still three to choose from - the merlot was good). We were offered free filtered water - a nice touch (our waitress offered this as an option when I asked for mineral water, which I thought was excellent customer service).

Olives, starters and main courses for two people came to 40 including my wine, the complimentary filter water, and an discretionary service charge. If you're looking for something cheaper, keep an eye out for special offers: they're currently (2007-10-24) running an introductory lunch offer with a main course (from a smaller menu) and drink for 7.50.
