Very good food.

Strings has good food, service and a local atmosphere. Always get a friendly greeting when entering and meals are served hot and with an appetizing display.

Don't order the Lazagna & Cheese Shells! One tiny meatball the size of a marble and the rest, flavorless cheese. Maybe we just ordered the wrong dish??? Great service though

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.

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
