My favorite type of food is Italian, always has been. I am always trying out new Italian places everywhere I visit. Thankfully, living in Miami allows me many options. My husband is not big on dishes with creamy sauces or cheese (don’t ask), however he loves seafood so he always finds a nice fish dish to enjoy. Miami has many amazingly delicious Italian eateries, however, Strada is one of my favorites, from the marvelous food to the side entryway, which reminds me of many restaurants in Italy, to the friendly wait staff. Its sister restaurant/pizzeria, Farinelli 1937, located directly across the street, is another great eatery in Coconut Grove, also not to be missed.
At first glance it’s hard to choose from so many amazing dishes, but here is what we started with:
Then on to the main dishes. I ordered the pumpkin agnolotti which I always order here, it is amazing (I am a creature of habit), and my husband ordered the salmon.
For dessert we ordered the panna cotta, one of my all time favorite Italian desserts, and it was delicious. Just the right texture too. And it came in a cute tiny mason jar to boot:
You basically cannot go wrong with this place. All of the dishes we have tried have been excellently prepared and the ambiance is fantastic, located in Coconut Grove, with outdoor seating available as well. Makes for an enticing evening out.
Have you dined at Strada? I would love to hear what you enjoyed most…
