This is why Italian food lends itself so well to business meetings
Playing it safe is not the same as being boring – and going for Italian food is definitively going for the safe option. Who doesn’t like Italian food, right? If you’ve got a business lunch or indeed a large board meeting, Italy’s wondrous cuisine is guaranteed to make everyone happy. 
 
There’s something undeniably romantic about an Italian setting for smaller corporate meetings, too. Minus the ‘offer he can’t refuse’ approach, don’t we all secretly wish we could conduct business in the style of The Godfather

Italian restaurant group Strada made its name serving fresh pasta and authentically thin and crispy pizzas at a time when they were rarely seen on the British high street. Today, its menus are familiar, but their comforting impact is the same. 
 
At the recently refreshed South Bank branch, groups can choose between the main dining room, an outdoor terrace and Foyles, a private area named for the famous bookshop next door.
 
Strada offers a traditional Italian experience with a modern twist – all while offering wonderful views of the South Bank and Riverside. On the menu, you can find everything from sharing flatbreads and starters to fresh pasta, hand-stretched pizzas and classic main dishes.
