Restaurant General Description

Strada, Italian for “Street,” was inspired by the pure aromas, tastes, and craft of pizzas found on the streets and in the pizzerias of Italy. Strada provides an authentic Italian dining experience in a chic and unique atmosphere. Simple yet innovative dishes, homemade pastas and signature pizzas fill the refined menu crafted by Executive Chef Rachel Spaccarotelli. A selection of fine Italian wines and liqueurs accompany a seasonal cocktail menu, and the welcoming staff creates the perfect ambiance from the exquisite meal to the exclusive nightlife. The Strada experience is unlike any other around.

TYJ Hospitality (a collaboration of the Mancini and DeAngelis families) is a privately held family restaurant group that has built, owned and operated multiple restaurant concepts in the Birmingham and Royal Oak communities. Entrepreneurial driven for over four decades the families began their hospitality ownership by opening the original Andiamo’s in Warren, Michigan.

Today, TYJ’s restaurants include Hamlin Corner, Pronto!, Strada, Primo’s Pizza of Birmingham and Primo’s Pizza of Royal Oak.  Affiliated restaurants include the Hamlin Pub which has 5 locations in the metro Detroit area.

Hamlin Corner was designed and opened to be an upscale sports bar. State-of-the-art TV’s, sports ticker, VIP booths and “not a bad seat in the house” have proven to be a successful model that was not seen before in Royal Oak.

Pronto! is a recent endeavor that TYJ Hospitality purchased and is running the daily operations.  Pronto!, having been a staple in the Royal Oak area for over 22 years, was a great fit when the opportunity presented itself.  Known for its sandwiches and weekend brunches Pronto! has a great reputation with families and locals.  The Pronto! Video Bar has been serving up drinks and is a “home away from home” for many in the GLBT community.

Primo’s Pizza of Birmingham and Royal Oak are the pride of TYJ Hospitality.  Award winning pizza, employees that have been with the business for over 20 years and strong ties to the neighborhoods make Primo’s not just another pizza place.  Customers are treated like a part of the family as many of them have grown up with Primo’s.

Strada is the latest venture of TYJ Hospitality.  A small plate Italian concept with an emphasis on handcrafted pizzas and cocktails is perfect for date night or a casual group out with friends. No expense was spared on the décor; all elements were handmade except for a historic chandelier that was restored back to its original luster of when it hung in the Book Cadillac back in the 1920’s.  A mezzanine level that overlooks the dining room is the perfect place for large parties to celebrate any occasion.

Future plans for TYJ Hospitality include new projects in Detroit and Chicago.
