Located at 19-20 North Hill Colchester 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 and garlic and thyme gratin potatoes
 
Pollo con Funghi – Chargrilled butterflied chicken breast with a creamy mushroom and marjoram sauce with garlic and ros emary 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 oregano

Desserts 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.

We had no idea what to expect but by the end of the evening vowed to come back! Watch out for your high heels on the highly polished floor as you come in and settle down to a feast with wines to match. You can hardly imagine this is part of a chain, the food is freshly prepared and reading the menu leaves you too many choices. We settled on the Filetto di manzo al pepe verde and Pollo con Funghi, though ended up eating each other's food, it was so appealing! Puds are just as scrummy especially with a glass of dessert wine. Fab place and we noticed that kids dining there were looked after well, unlike other restaurants in the area. Highly recommended.
