SquareMeal Review of Strada Panton Street

Strada’s pizza bases pass the thin and crispy test. The toppings are fresh, the flavours authentic and 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 and speedy’, plus clean, contemporary surrounds that are appealing enough for business or pleasure. There are clearly some serious Italophiles making the decisions at Strada, and this filters through to menus that embrace less-predictable options of stuffed and breaded olive ascolana, Sardinian fregola and clam soup, black tagliolini with crab, and nougat semifreddo ‘affogato’. Italian wines, with lots around a fiver a glass, are a bonus.

We went for a pre-theatre meal to La Strada last week and although the service was very good the food was awful. I had the spaghetti with sea food and it was cold and tasted like paste or baby food. The sea food was not fresh and tasted like it had been re-heated (badly). My son had a very simple vegetarian option which he found to be stale and tasteless. We have found that genuine Italian restaurants take pride in serving fresh tasty food – especially sea food but, La Strada's food was terrible. Passed my comments on to Strada, via the comments card in the restaurant, who were quite defensive and not really interested.

As this is fast becoming my West End pre-theatre restaurant of choice (at least three visits in the past few months) I thought it was high time it was given a bit of recognition. It may not be the fanciest place I've ever eaten at, but for a good quality, good value two course meal served and enjoyed within an hour or so, it is very hard to beat. My dining and theatre companions have varied on each occasion and no-one has left the table disappointed. Pasta dishes are the standout choice, but pizza and regular main dishes are also highly commended. Staff have always been friendly and accommodating, and very aware that at certain times of the day, customers time is at a premium but manage to achieve the fine balance between unhurried and speedy service. Definitely worth signing up to receive their regular offers for an even better value meal!
