Strada Pizzeria and Enoteca ~ Canyon Country ~ Santa Clarita Valley

Today for lunch, after receiving a couple of good recommendations, we went for lunch at this new restaurant in Canyon Country.
From the outside, it looks just like any other pizza place, but once inside it's very welcoming, nicely decorated, nothing too stuffy, just nice and clean.

Now for the food, it was amazing. Everything we tasted was great.
We started with iced tea, and it tasted freshly brewed. We ordered a Minestrone Soup, a trio of Crostini, a Caesar salad, a Stromboli, and a Muffaletta. For dessert we had a Toasted Almond Tiramisu, and an order of Zeppole and I also had an Italian roast coffee made fresh to order using a French coffee press. Everything was very, very good. You can taste the freshness of the ingredients, all prepared to order, and housemade. I liked everything we ordered, but my favorite was the crostini, I loved the combination of the three different toppings for each of the crostini, it reminded me of a trio of bruscheta that Woolfgang Puck's "Vert" Restaurant used to serve, but Strada's was actually better. Oh, and the Tiramisu, definitively one of the best I have tried.
I strongly recommend this place and I am so happy that it's here in SCV, I wish it was close to my part of the city, but for me the drive to CC to eat at this restaurant is more than worth it. There are so many newly open restaurants in SCV, and I think I had try them all already with high hopes, and leaving full of disappointment, but today I left very happy with my experience at Strada Enoteca.
Service was great too, our quite young waitress was very nice and knowledgeable, she promptly offered us a seat, and took our drink orders, brought us bread (which was freshly made too, along with excellent quality olive oil) then our food was delivered promptly, she kept checking on us during our meal.

My hopes is that this establishment stays with us for a long time, and keeps the same great food, and great service. Consistency is the key in my opinion.
