I love businesses that give employees the power to delight the customer: I infuriate my family and friends by pointing these little things out, I watch how the manager treats the staff, how they interact with them and then witnessing how the staff are empowered to solve problems. I don’t even mind things going wrong as long as it is solved well enough!If you are slightly strange or work in HR like me, then you will appreciate Strada. If HR is not your bag or you are normal, then I am certain you will like it anyway. It is one of the larger restaurant chains now (71 around the UK at last count), and I have tried a few branches, mostly around London (their ‘More London’ location probably has some of the best dining views in the city). In my generous experience with Strada the service has been excellent and the staff all seem very well trained.
All this may seem that I am a gobby little good-for-nothing who just wants to get something for free. But Strada is a chain that wants you to enjoy yourself. They are still in the stages of making a name for themselves (successfully, I may add) and they are building loyalty. And if all it costs them a few olives and some Sambuca then I can’t see the harm!
There is a fantastic wine list and I am proud to say that Strada is one of few chains that serve Gavi; a delicious dry white wine that seems to be a bit elusive around town! The ever-professional Strada staff serves it well too, rather than just plonk it on the table with a couple of smudged glasses. It’s pretty standard beverages everywhere else, the beers are Peroni as you might imagine and the choice of spirits on offer does depend on what branch you go to. A few Stradas have dedicated bar areas too.
