This restaurant was about a 5 minute walk from our B&B. We ate here twice because the food was so good and lucky for us, we had the same waiter each visit.
There is seating on street level and also a open rooftop dining area that overlooks the sea, but there is a roof across the road that partially blocks the view. Romantic ambiance. Crisp white linen. This is where we first tried stuffed zucchini flowers. They were deep fried in a light crispy batter and stuffed with ricotta cheese and basil. Simple and delicious. The seafood was very good and although we didn't have any, you could pick your own live lobster. We tried some local wine - very good and we loved our waiter (Antonio). He was helpful and very friendly. Would surely go back to La Strada.

Lovely restaurant with great food and service
Located on Praiano's main street, we were happy to have such a nice restaurant to go to just a block from our hotel. We were therefore able to thourougly enjoy our bottle of Lungarotti Rubesco 1995 Vigna Monticchio that was lovely for 30E.
I started with the most delicious prosciutto and melon (the melon was incredibily fresh and sweet) and Jim had a very nice insalata mista. I could not decide between a grilled fish dish or a seafood risotto, so the waiter steered me toward the risotto for the best of both worlds. I was glad he did as it was terrific. Jim once again had the spaghetti vongele for his last night on the Amalfi coast. It was very good, but La Laterna in Sorrento was the best of the trip he thought. We ended our meal with a melt in your mouth lemon tart.
This was a terrific meal at a moderate price and a very nice way to end our time in Amalfi. Highly recommended.

Excellent food, pleasant ambience, inexpensive for the quality
La Strada is one of two good restaurants in Praiano. The other is La Brace. I had the pizza with pancetta and cipollini, a dish which is worth traveling to Praiano for, mixed clams and mussels and the grilled fish. My wife had fresh mozzarella baked in lemon leaves, another dish worth the trip, the mixed seafood platter (calamari, prawn, shrimp), cherry tomato and arugula salad. Main courses were accompanied by potatoes and grilled eggplant. Dinner with wine - 69E.
