The fabulous owner of La Strada Italian Restaurant in Long Beach celebrates her birthday with a toy drive!
I don’t know too many people that would do that, do you? What a fabulous lady, Lisa Ramelow is. She was out there mingling with her guests and seen hugging many of them. I know I felt special when she came over to hug me.
The event (open to the public) included DJ music and with a $15 unwrapped toy donation (or a $20 cash donation), you enjoyed a gourmet Italian buffet on the house and a drink ticket.
The toys collected will go to the needed children of Long Beach.
Go check out Lisa’s local friendly La Strada’s Italian Restaurant if you’re ever in Long Beach and want yummy Italian food. It’s my friend’s favorite restaurant, and I can’t wait to take my family back here.

More About La Strada Restaurant
La Strada is a small family Italian restaurant in Long Beach that is
owned and operated by Lisa Ramelow. A fixture in the Long Beach Italian
restaurant scene, La Strada was originally opened as Caffe La Strada by
her father in 1993. Lisa was on a break from her eight-year career
working as a software engineer at Rockwell to care for her two small
children. She offered to help her father out, and after a couple of
years Lisa became the proud owner of the best not-so-secret Italian
restaurant in Long Beach.
