We spent five weeks in Praiano, and ate at La Strada probably 16 times -.could not get enough of the food, service and view. NOT to be missed. Sometimes we had a full dinner with a bottle of Vhianti, sometimes pizza and beer.

Make sure you go upstairs to dine. Even if you want pizza, go up stairs to the outside garden dining. Roof top Garden, outside dining, Sylvia was amazing. Beautiful panoramic terrace, with a view of Positano and the faraway Capri.

Excellent food with a stunning view and romantic setting on the rooftop Garden.

The service was attentive and friendly without being overbearing. Always wonderful service. Sylvia is a wonderful server. So much personality, always made great suggestions. We listened too her, and we were never disappointed.

Always a bottle of Chianti. Some of the food we eat, linguine and clams, everyone orders this. But it took us 3 weeks to try it. BOY! What we had been missing. I loved it.

Pizza Margherita, one of the best I have ever had. Yes, I have had pizza in Naples, but this was better….We must have had it 6 or 7 times while there.

Veal escalope with Marsala. Loved it. This is one of my all time favorite dishes. I did have it several times. Ricotta stuffed zucchini flower, delish!!! . Potato croquettes with mozzarella amazing !!! I think these get over looked, but you will love them.

Tiramisù, you will not want to eat anyone else’s tiramisu. Also at times, Lemon Tiramisù, was a Chef special.. Wonderful!!! They also have a lemon custard out of this world.

I could never say enough great things about La Strada. Don't miss it!!!

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.
