Located at 12 Baddow Rd, Chelmsford, Strada offers diners a contemporary and stylish setting with an al fresco dining area perfect for summertime.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 an d garlic and thyme gratin potatoes Pollo con Funghi – Chargrilled butterflied chicken breast with a creamy mushroom and marjoram sauce with garlic and rosemary gratin 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.

I wondered what to expect from a chain restaurant but was very pleasantly surprised. Food was very nice, good menu choice, nice atmosphere and good value. Perhaps the only real criticism is that a 10% service charge, although optional, was aleady added to the bill and we were only made aware of it when we asked whether we could add a tip when we paid by card. Would definitely recommend though.

Excellent for the under 35's -it's buzzin' - but not the best venue for a quiet, relaxing, romantic dinner a deux. Food rather good and well-presented. Fast service (tho' with a hint of impatience). Reasonably priced - approx £55 for 2 having main course, dessert and wine. Toilets upstairs are clean and modern with spacious cubicles (and there's a ground floor toilet for disabled). Would possibly go there again for a lunch or in the courtyard in summer (but, ladies, watch your heels in between those pretty cobblestones!)

 

Strada - Will definately visit again

Really good restaurant, will definately be going back.

It does what it says on the tin, attractive surroundings and great food. It is also great because it's versatile, perfect for family outings, a romantic evening or somewhere nice to take the inlaws.
