SquareMeal Review of Strada Great Queen Street

Strada’s pizza bases pass the thin & crispy test. The toppings are fresh, the flavours authentic & the price is right – such things matter to the foodies who will eat here, but won’t consider other high-street chains. However, superior wood-fired pizzas aren’t all Strada has going for it: readers also praise ‘accommodating’ service that achieves a fine balance between ‘unhurried & speedy’, plus clean, contemporary surrounds that are appealing enough for business or pleasure. There are clearly some serious Italophiles making the decisions at Strada, & this filters through to menus that embrace less-predictable options of stuffed & breaded olive ascolana, Sardinian fregola & clam soup, black tagliolini with crab, & nougat semifreddo ‘affogato’. Italian wines, with lots around a fiver a glass, are a bonus.

Gulliver would have felt at home in this Liliputian restaurant. Tables and chairs squeezed into tiny spaces made it a great place to get to know your neighbours. The waiting staff had that uncanny ability to whizz around the place without making eye contact and we had to resort to shouting at them to get their attention. The starters took an eternity to arrive, a small salad, bread and soup. The bread was cold, as was the soup although this may have been due to having to wait ages for a spoon to arrive. The glass of, overpiced and mediocre, wine ordered at the start of the meal also failed to arrive on time and had to be requested three times. They didn't fare much better with the mains, cold pizza (also without a knofe and fork) and pasta, cardboard chicken and another frustrating wait. Strada, never again!
