La Strada International Deli
Location: Barrington south of Sunset, Brentwood

La Strada

I first came to La Strada a few years ago after hearing about their delicious sandwiches. I now love this deli and the never-ending list of paninis named after streets in Los Angeles and Rome that hang proudly on the back wall. La Strada was opened in 2004 by Rebecca and (Roman-born) Simone Totti after the pair moved back to Los Angeles from Italy. Following the tradition of naming paninis and other menu items after neighborhood streets, Rebecca and Simone Totti decided to take this tradition one step further and name the establishment “La Strada”, meaning “The Street” in Italian.

My only problem with coming here is that I always take too long to decide what to order and almost always default to something with prosciutto and pesto sauce

Location Pictures Inside

I don’t have a picture of the prosciutto panino, but this picture of the “Sunset Strip” sandwich (Oven-roasted turkey, domestic swiss cheese, avocado, cucumbers, sprouts, iceberg lettuce and sliced tomatoes on multi-grain bread–$7.45) is making me want to accidentally forget my  homemade lunch tomorrow and make a quick trip to La Strada for some fresh deli slices.

    wow, those look so delish!

    I almost always end up order a “safe ” pasta dish as well when I can’t decide on a new food.
