A first choice for everything from casually elegant dinners to corporate and private parties, La Strada has played host to many of the city's most prestigious events. While this is partly due to the restaurant's ideal atmosphere, including a private bar area, a semi private dining section, and amenities such as a full bar with talented bartenders and state of the art audio-visual equipment; part of this undoubtedly stems from the genuine passion and excitement of Executive Chef Roberto Bernardoni, and his long career of opening successful restaurants where he not only served as chef but as gracious host as well. While the atmosphere is one of the most inviting around, it is the food and the service that makes Trattoria La Strada a favorite among San Diegans and visitors alike.
At La Strada, Bernardoni finds himself focusing on bringing the traditions and treasures of his native Tuscany to San Diego. At his first two restaurants, both in the heart of Florence, high quality Tuscan ingredients were the norm; throughout his 15 years at La Strada Bernardino has personally ensured that the same quality ingredients, although not as readily available, are used in his kitchen.
