Strada is taking active measures to ensure the health of our Team Members and also to assist in fighting the spread of COVID-19.

Effective March 17, 2020, Strada is closing our physical offices in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and we will continue to operate remotely. We anticipate returning to our offices on April 30, 2020 but will update our plans as new information becomes available.

Meetings will be held virtually, via conference call or may be postponed. All of our Team Members will be working remotely under our work-from-home policy. Due to the two-week school and business closings our staff may be active at various times throughout the day and evening, so please bear with us as we make every effort to stay on schedule and in contact with our clients and business colleagues.

About Strada

Strada means “street” in Italian. Streets matter to us. They’re the fundamental infrastructure of our cities and the core of our civic lives. They’re the connections between buildings, people, and public spaces. This is why we’re so inspired by them and it’s a shared commitment to these values that brought our principals together. Just as people mingle on city streets, our office is a place where we freely exchange ideas, challenging and inspiring one another to create exceptional work.

New flavors in the former Alcoa building

About this project

Talia Cucina & Rosticceria restaurant is the final piece of the restoration of the Alcoa building, and one of the most visible. This restaurant transforms a significant urban corner adjacent to two hotels and a park and revives an interior that formerly held a dated technology exhibit. More laid-back than its sister restaurant, Vallozzi’s, Talia’s focal points are a welcoming bar and a custom-built rotisserie. On one side, the generously-sized bar is a popular happy hour destination featuring a wraparound marble bar and prosecco on tap. At the other end of the space, an expo kitchen allows diners to watch Talia’s signature slow-roasted meats take form on the rotisserie as they relax amidst red-painted paneling and leather upholstery. Both areas of the restaurant benefit from existing high ceilings, original aluminum rounded-corner windows and revolving door, framing great city views and completing the melding of modern and traditional at Talia.
