La Strada, Staten Island

In our last post, we mentioned how the Bronx and Staten Island are in many ways the lesser-known of the five New York boroughs, though to be fair, the Bronx goes get its fair share of visitors. Staten Island, however, does not; it seems in many ways more of a suburb than a part of New York City. Because of this, visitors to the area often miss out on an area that has many points of interest, as well as good shopping and dining. And the dining part is what we focus on here, as we talk about a highly regarded Italian restaurant on Staten Island called La Strada that would probably be a lot more popular if it were in Park Slope or Greenwich Village.

La Strada is a large restaurant that is located in the busy neighborhood of New Dorp (toward the eastern end of the island). Because of the restaurant's impressive size (a rarity in much of New York City), it does much in the way of parties, functions, and catering. The menu at La Strada is varied and extensive, with all kinds of appetizers and salads as well as pasta, chicken, steak, veal, and seafood dishes.
