Besides the great service and delicious food, it was so nice sitting in a restaurant comfortably have a quiet conversation with my wife. Unlike most new places, being able to relax and talk during dinner without straining to hear ourselves or our server was special. Thank you, I will return

Excellent food and service. Pasta was perfect al dente. Stuffed artichoke hearts appetizer was wonderful as well. Service was friendly and professional. A little live music and singing was welcome. The dining room is a little tight. Even though I had a reservation, we got stuck with a table in the middle of the room and that always feels like eating in the middle of traffic...not the best for a relaxing or romantic meal. Next time, I'll pretend I'm really old and get there around 5:30 for a better table.

As always the food was outstanding. The drinks were well made and the supporting wait staff was prompt and effective. I feel badly criticising our server, but we truly felt we were an afterthought and an inconvenience to him. To start, I asked for a small modification to my meal which wasn't done when it came to the table. There were two other tables around us that were clearly regulars that he was turning up the charm on. He even asked my boyfriend to physically move his chair out of the way so he could do a table-side flambé dessert preparation, which seemed odd since that table hadn't eaten their entree yet. I have worked in food service in the past and I realize you can't always be "on" but it's part of the job...

Perhaps the most egregious error was when I was wished a happy birthday at the beginning of the meal and I specifically asked that to be the end of the discussion regarding my birthday. I was mortified when I saw he walked over to the piano player (who was excellent, by the way) and asked her to start singing the "Happy Birthday" song. I cannot stand this and having only one birthday a year, this was not at all how I wanted to spend it. Suffice to say, I will be celebrating with a different server, or possibly at another restaurant, next year.

We got seated immediately. We’ve eaten at La Strada many, many times. Attended and hosted parties there as well. After 30 years of enjoying La Strada, we continue to love this restaurant. I had Risotto Pescatore, my husband had Veal Sorrentino. My dinner with delicious house salad was absolutely delicious. Had dinner another night. My husband said the veal was toooo thin. It wasn’t tasty. But he ate it up. We will continue to enjoy dinners at La Strada.... maybe just don’t pound the veal so much! By the way, our server Brian was very attentive! All in all great!

The food here is always delicioius and reasonably priced. We first had drinks at the bar and our bartender Victoria was excellent. She really took pride in her drink making and listened to exactly what we wanted. The service at the table was excellent as always. We know this establishment has been sold but understand that the previous owner is still hands on in the transition. We can only hope that nothing is changed because that would be a shame. The friends we were with also had nothing but praise about their food, drinks, and service.

Been there many times. The food is always excellent and so is the service. Finally they are getting Buffalo Mozzarella which has a unique flavor and far superior to ordinary mozzarella. One of the best restaurants on the Dover -Succassuna area.

Knew that LaStrada restaurant changed owners so, needed to check that out favorite restaurant hasn't changed. Food & ambiance same. Service was very slow which is unusual.
Will return with friends. Food & value good.

We had a very nice evening meeting up with old friends. Our waiter was very knowledgable and pleasant. The food was delicious and well presented. I would definitely come back. The only complaint is that it was a little pricey and we were charged for refills on non-alcoholic drinks.

Old school Italian under new ownership. Many regulars, but remains to be seen if the service continues to be good. I thought the food to be only fair and disappointing.

Everything was so wonderful! The only thing that was even a little off was that we didn't know the prices of the specials so that made me a little nervous about the final bill. But I would absolutely go back for another super special night out!

Everything was excellent except not knowing there was ONLY valley parking and didn’t come with cash since we had planned to use our debit card! We asked the lot guy if we could park our own car ( wasn’t busy at all) and he declined. I didn’t want to have to walk out not being able to tip him but we had no choice!

On first arriving the dinning area is well laid out, roomy and peaceful atmosphere. Our waiter Marty was very professional, friendly and very attentive to our needs. He did a great job taking care of us. The food was phenomenal. Generous portions. and delicious. Everyone (8) in our group was very pleased with our dining experience. We have been here before and have always had a great experience here and will definitely return. Thank you La Strada and staff. Excellent !

The restaurant is nicely kept, plus the staff is very attentive and cordial. I arrived early so decided to have a cocktail at the bar. The bartenders were very quick to ask what I wanted even though the bar was full. Nice touch is the bar had snacks out, peanuts and what looked like home made potato chips.

At dinner the waiter was well informed of the specials, which there were many of, and did a nice job of telling us about them. My meal consisted of oysters for an appetizer, then pork Oso Buco with risotto and vegetables for my main. The oysters were very good the dish came with extra horseradish sauce. The Oso Buco was large, well prepared and fell apart with a fork just as it should. The only thing that could have been better was giving a little more risotto. Not that the portion was small it's just that I love risotto and this was very good so wanted a little more.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

A solid dining experience you can always count on. Food is always quite good, not outrageously creative, but solid preparations of classic dishes. Service is always great here. We've been enjoying La Strada for many many years.

My wife and I have been going to La Strada every few months, for over eighteen years.
This is the very first time we were disappointed. Something has definitely changed.
It looked as if there was an entirely new staff, and definitely a new chef.
One of the pleasures of this restaurant was always the welcoming, knowledgeable, meticulous staff, and the consistency of superior dishes.
Five of the six meals served our group this evening was a disappointment. (All six in our group have eaten here many times.)
It pains me to write this.
I will say, however, that instead of our usual Friday or Saturday visit, this was on a Wednesday evening.
So, we will try one more time, on a Saturday.

Perhaps La Strada was having a bad night, but our dinners were average at best. The service terrible - waiter was intentive, bus help literally tossed plates in front of us -- no attention to detail. And, one server needed a shower and fresh clothes. Sorry, we won't be back.
