The restaurant is also perfect for business lunches, informal parties and functions and has a menu dedicated to providing exactly the kind of rustic, traditional dishes one would expect to find travelling around Italy.Notable dishes, made using only the very finest fresh ingredients, include: Risotto ai frutti di mare- southern Italian risotto with fresh squid, mussels, prawns and fresh Palourde clams, finished with chilli, garlic and extra virgin olive oil Filetto di manzo al pepe verde – pan roasted fillet of beef with a creamy shallot and peppercorn sauce served with buttered green beans and garlic and thyme gratin potatoes Pollo con Funghi – Chargrilled butterflied chicken breast with a creamy mushroom and marjoram sauce with garlic and rosemary gr atin potatoes A range of traditional pizzas – each one theatrically spun by hand – is also an integral feature of Strada’s menu. Options include the Rustica, a mouthwatering pizza topped with tomato, mozzarella, chargrilled Neapolitan sausage, oven roasted baby artichokes, capers, roasted Italian tomatoes, caramelised onions and fresh oreganoDesserts are also faithful to the authentic theme with classics such as panettone al forno, a warm panettone bread and butter pudding served with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Strada serves purely regional Italian wines, as well as beers and spirits, which have all been carefully chosen to complement the menu. In addition every table receives complimentary bottled filtered water. Strada also cater for parents with young children by supplying high-chairs, buggy storage and half portions of pasta.

Absolutely disgusting. As a regular Strada customer I was totally appalled by the food and the service at the Strada in Billericay. The service was disgraceful, the waitress was rude and arrogant and really couldn't be bothered. Once the food was served we never saw the waitress again, it took ages to get a drink and to pay the bill. I ordered a pasta dish that I have had on several occasions and it was like boiled pasta in dirty dish water. Would not recommend this Strada to anyone.

Went with my partner last Wednesday thinking of having a nice quiet night out and did not book. The restaurant was heaving but managed to get a table in a cosy area towards the front of the restaurant. Had to wait a bit for the food but the staff was very friendly and we were well looked after considering the place was packed. When asked for the bill the manager brought us a complimentary limoncello which I thought was a very nice gesture. Will definetely go back but I would recommend to book a table.

The restaurant is very lovely and has a good atmosphere and music. the service is very good and dressed smartly. The food is above par but bit pricey. one bad thing was it took ages for the food, with only 2 tables. both with 2 people on each table. it felt like the chef had driven to southend and back for the seafood..

generally very good.

 

Great for an informal evening

A more upmarket chain restaurant serving great pizza and pasta. Food is freshly prepared and consistently good. It's a good value for money evening out. Informal, friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

The latest addition to the string of mediocre Italian chain restaurants already on Billericay High Street. When will the locals demand something other than a menu consisting of garlic bread and caesar salads to start followed by mains of either penne pasta (complete with bland tomato sauce), the standard overly-cooked steak or a lack lustre fish creation!?



To be fair Strada is not a terrible restaurant by any means. The food was perfectly reasonable and the service fairly good. Possibly slightly overpriced but nicely done out inside. All in all it meets the full critera of an uninspired restaurant for a gastronomically uninspired town.



Fingers crossed that if they do enough business perhaps someone can justify opening a Pizza Express to complete the town's 'Italian Collection'.
