This is not at all the standard and quality of food one would expect from Stretta. 2 of the 3 dishes where DISGUSTING to say the least. Disappointing Disappointing.

I have been so Stretta at least over 30 times as it’s definitely one of my Upper- Highway favourites.. Today I order 2 pizza’s for myself and my boyfriend, having faith in the quality of the food. After collecting our pizza’s and tucking in, I...was in shock. The pizza’s have no flavour, I ordered a pizza with 6 different toppings and the pizza somehow still had no flavour.. it definitely needed at least a teaspoon of salt or some herbs. I thought it was supposed had an Italian flair.. I tasted very South African to me. Stretta!!!!! Please work on this? Taste your food… 6/10 would not recommend until something improves!More

Always have Italian Fare but decided on fillet steaks. One with hollandaise sauce, mash and green beans. The other one just grilled , onion rings and chips. Med rare and medium. Both grilled to perfection!!! That does not often happen and one couId see the...difference between the two when looking at the meat! I had a delicous Anura wine and he had beer. What a splendid evening. We did congratulate the chef. DEFINITELY going back soon. Go and give it a try you will be delighted. Needless to say pasta and pizzas to die for.More

On Mothers Day ordered Take Away to be collected at 2pm from Stretta Hillcrest. Was not ready at 2pm. Had to wait spprox half zn hour. Meals ordered: Seafood Pasta - all seafood overcooked tough, appeared to be "warmed up". Sauce excessively rich. Pasta tough....Very unpleasant, mostly inedible. Chicken pasta the same - very unpleasant. Pizza also unacceptable - seafood on top apparently frozen znd placed on pizza in oven, watery inside. Melanson- the only item which was reasonably acceptable and edible. This was a most unacceptable meal and if it had been served in the restaurant all dishes would have been sent back as unacceptable. All meals expensive and totally unacceptable. Will NOT return.More

Waiter was very pleasant and took our orders correctly. We had to wait approx 45 to 50 mins for our food to arrive. We had to make contact with staff to replenish our drinks while waiting for our food to arrive. Atmosphere was very noisy...initially and then quietened down when some people left. Maybe they are a bit shortstaffed.More

Every meal at Stretta is a good one. We recently went there for a breakfast and their Omlettes are excellent and seriously filling.

Good food, good service in a very relaxed setting. Can sit indoors or outdoors. Meals include pizza and pasta. Cater for vegetarians. My meal was a side order of potato mash and roast vegetables. Was really good. Meals are reasonably priced. Will go back.

I was a little disappointed with the service at Stretta this evening. Nothing terrible, and it won’t stop me from going there again as this is one of my favourite restaurants, but it just felt like the staff were a little disinterested. The restaurant was...not busy, but we were kept waiting for quite a while after we had ordered dessert and again when we wanted to pay the bill. I hope that things are back to normal on our next visit.More

Arrived in the middle of load shedding - Waited 1/2 an hour to get a drink, food was very average. If you can't keep up the standards, rather close during load shedding - they are just doing themselves damage by trying to run a 1/2...baked show.More

We went to the Stretta on a Sunday after Church, but just missed the breakfast period. It was a super hot day, and the server was “on spot” serving us a pitcher of ice cold water with lemons as soon as we sat down. He...also made sure the ladies had soft cushions for their tushies. The menu was very interesting, but when one of our guests was “too focused on breakfast”, the server deftly directed her to a great chicken avocado salad that was heaping full of great chicken, avo, and greenery. Good call on the server. Definitely was a lovely Sunday afternoon lunch spot. We also hear of positive reviews on their pizzas and Pasta specials!!!More

We were greeted warmly and looked after well by our waitress. The restaurant was very busy, but the atmosphere was great and the food was good all round. The only complaint was that the table was a bit small for 4 people but if we...had booked I'm sure we could have chosen a better table. I would definitely recommend StrettaMore
