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

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
