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

I travel through Jackson, California on my way from Oakhurst, California to Tahoe City. I decided to stop in at Strings to give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. A very nice clean well lit eatery, great staff and wonderful food. You get a lot for very reasonable prices. I had the Artichoke Stuffed Ravioli and it comes with... More

I liked the mix of traditional and creative Italian food. I enjoyed the lasagne with meat balls and my husband was impressed with the steak service with blue cheese and shrimp. the chocolate lasagne desert was very good. The service was attentive. A nice, relaxing dining experience

It's no wonder, in a small close-knit community like we have in Amador County rich with multiple generations of Italian families, that a place like Strings ostensibly seems like a can't-miss business prospect. It has recently been awarded by this site as well as the local paper sponsored publicly voted list of favorites as best Italian Restaurant. That's a biggie... More

We took some out of town visitors here for lunch. The service was excellent, fast and friendly. I had the chicken parm, my wife and friends had the all you can eat soup and salad. We love the bread they serve. Definitely would go back.

My husband and I were recently in Strings Italian Cafe in Jackson. We were both so impressed with the food as well as the staff. I never usually write reviews but we were so happy with our experience that just had to. If you go there, I highly recommend the Tuscan steak. It rivals any steakhouse steak. My husband had... More

I absolutely love there food and the waiters are very good , always coming with more bread and water. I love there artichoke pasta, and very good salad. I had the lasagna pocket it was good. So was the bread. For desert I had the brownie lasagna which is excellent. A little pricey but over all worth it!
