THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Strada Ristorante Restaurant Review

: We're talking romantic in a supper club kind of way here---meaning that the waiters hover a bit too much. And we're talking fancy in a 50s kind of way---meaning that the restaurant is starting to look a bit aged. However, as we've said so often, you can't eat the décor anyway, so go for the very good food. The menu covers a lot of the Italian peninsula, coming forth with decent clams Posillipo, veal done several ways (the Milanese preparation is the best), and more contemporary dishes such as lamb chops. Pasta, of course, highlights the menu, and it is dealt with nicely with a heavy bent toward the cream and butter sauces common to Northern Italian cooking. Tried and trite tiramisu should be skipped in favor of the freshly-made zabione.
