This relaxed Italian restaurant from Craig Willis, former executive chef at the Wagas empire, specialises in delicious authentic pizzas and a casual pizzeria ambiance.

La Strada's 14 large pizzas, all baked in the brick woodfire oven, combine fresh ingredients, great dough and competitive prices. The margherita has a firm but bubbly base, a perfect crisp-doughy crust, creamy mozzarella and whole basil leaves on top.

Another hit is the tomato sauce-less zucchini pizza which, with its grilled zucchini, cow mozzarella, artichokes, olives and anchovies, is like a scrumptious pizza antipasto smorgasbord. A decent range of tasty home-style pastas and salads are also on offer, and don’t leave without trying the tiramisu.
