VA Eats: La Strada
Enjoy a glowing piece of Italy on a warm and quiet evening while you still can this Summer at La Strada.

La Strada’s Cavatelli noodles were easily the best I’ve had in a long time. The soft egg and distinctively fresh noodles were a joy to nibble on, even individually from all of the other savory components in this dish; such as prosciutto, peas and hard boiled eggs – all of which sat together under a thin blanket of grated parmigiano cheese.
The charming atmosphere is one of the reasons why I will be back for another dinner under their romantically lit outdoor seating area. Almost as if you were having dinner in a quiet sliver of an alley in Italy, the ambience and traditional Italian food will have you feeling as if you fell through the cracks of Del Ray, and on to the door steps of a secret passage to Italy instead.
