veetee's review of Strada

“tiny portions!”

Written on: 22/08/2013 by veetee (1 review written)

I visited the sheffield restaurant early weekday evening with a friend. I was impressed to find that everything on the food and drinks menu was italian (wines/ beers/spirits),however, don't expect a 'house wine'- cheapest on the menu was £15 (we settled for 2 large peronis). The interior is nice, fresh and contemporary. We ordered some sicilian olives whilst waiting for the main but paid £3.50 for 9 olives which was disappointing. We had seafood risotto and although the amount of seafood was o.k and baby plum tomatoes nice, the amount of risotto rice was tiny and lacked the depth of flavour and consistency of authentic italian risottos. I was still hungry after my meal and I am only 5 foot tall and 8 stone!I would not recommend this restaurant as it is not good value for money and lets itself down with its obviously strict portion control and lack of time given to preparing a good risotto rice ( although the pizzas that guests on another table had ordered looked good) I had not realised before visiting that Strada is a chain of restaurants but on visiting, this is in fact apparent
