Strada Italian restaurants represent good value for money – excellent food, pleasant surroundings, cheerful service and child-friendly. Olivia and I took Harriet at the end of an afternoon's shopping in Oxford Street to the Strada in Market Place. It wasn't as busy as it would be later in the evening so there was no problem with our laden buggy being parked alongside the table to which a high chair was swiftly brought along with some crayons and the children's menu.
We always have the Sicilian olives while we decide on a main course and Harriet loves them as well. Her appetite doesn't yet warrant eating from the children's menu which offers a choice of two pasta dishes, a pizza or chicken plus a dessert and a drink for £5.75.
Olivia ordered a rigatoni Siciliana and I had a flat bread pizza which were both delicious and came very quickly - a bonus for a hungry toddler who enjoyed enjoyed sharing both meals.
An awkward moment when we were awaiting our cheese course was smoothed over by the arrival of some breadsticks for Harriet brought by our charming waitress.
As we were leaving we realised we'd need some milk for Harriet and our waitress filled her bottle free of charge.
We used a two mains for the price of one voucher which meant our meal was real value for money but more importantly we had, once again, enjoyed the Strada experience. Visit the Strada website to sign up for promotions.
