My husband and I eat here when we are looking to satisfy our appetite for an Italian meal. They have a good selection and the food is moderately priced. The portions are large and we usually leave with a doggie bag. The service has always been excellent and you are warmly greeted upon arrival. We have yet to be disappointed.

Was working in Jackson CA and I love Italian food that is prepared locally and not a chain. I've never been to Strings but thought I'd try it. The service was great, never waited for anything as the staff was extremely attentive and prompt. I had soup with bread and their mixture of olive oil, chopped garlic, and balsamic vinegar.... More

Had lunch here with my grandmother and brother. We were served quickly but seated in a booth in the corner even though it was not particularly busy. Ordered the chicken Parmesan which was great but the Alfredo pasta with it was lacking in sauce and it wasn't very hot either. Brother ordered the Margherita pizza which he enjoyed and was... More

It's like the fast food of Italian food... Just plain not good. Except for the bread, I guess? Been there once a few years ago, and once recently... Same exact experience both times. Terrible then, terrible now.

Ate here tonight with my husband. Excellent food & service. I had the Margarita pizza and it was delicious. Great prices too. I will eat here again.

Jackson (actually Martel) California isn't known for an abundance of fine dining establishments, but I was very pleased with my trip to Strings Monday. It was my cousin's birthday, and she was given free spumoni ice cream and sung to. She and my husband both enjoyed their soup and salad, and my lasagna in pastry crust with both marinara and...

From time to time my wife & I go to Strings. The food is hot & tasty. The all you can eat salad is custom made (for example I don't get fresh onion in my salad) so they bring 2 salads. I have tried a number of dishes but now almost always order the fisherman's stew (or soup) as it... More

My family ate here for lunch last week. I am so glad we did! Everything was delicious. The eggplant parmesan was the best I have ever had...not too cheesy/greasy not too soggy. Our son had the calzone, it was huge! The service was great, my dad has several food sensitivities, our server was patient and helpful about his meal, I... More

I wasn't expecting much from this nondescript place tugged into a strip mall. But I was greeted warmly and seated immediately. The star here was the short ribs with vodka sauce. It was excellent and the mashed potatoes on the side and crunchy green beans made it a great meal. It's not a fancy place and the AC was working... More

I have read the few bad reviews for Strings/Jackson and found them lacking. As a Local I have eaten there many times and found it is always top notch. Great service, friendly employees, excellent food and wine. To the guy who said he was served his salad with dressing already on ... apparently you don't go out to dine very... More
