I have frequented this restaurant for many years. However, we went last year and the food was not fresh. Tasted frozen and heated up. Sauces were not fresh as well. Used to love going out to Dinner here at the last minute as we always had great service and food. Bring back the "Quality" of food and not frozen and... More

Strings has a small venue but the food is very well prepared. It is quiet with a candle light atmosphere.

We came here with high expectations for this highly touted restaurant (by the newspaper, no less!). Well, we were sorely disappointed! The bar is so tiny, it is obviously only for "looks", as no one was inside when we arrived or left. The hostess was slow and unfriendly, making us wait because we didn't have a lunch reservation, when there... More

Ordered Chicken Picatta which is supposed to be a pounded out chicken breast lightly fried and served with a light sauce of lemon, butter, caper and somtimes a little white wine. What I got was an overcooked breast smothered in a thick gravy! My side was capellini with a thick glob of something supposed to be Alfredo sauce sitting on... More

When we want to have a quiet Italian dinner, with very good food, beautifully served by friendly and efficient waitresses, we head for Strings. Located in a popular shopping area with Walmart and Safeway and numerous smaller businesses, you can relax with a glass of wine and choose from tasty Italian dishes. Our favorite is one of Srings Creations "Spinach... More

Food is average. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of Italian restaurants in the area. If you have a craving for Italian, this may not cut it for you.

The quality of the food has gone downhill I don't know if it's just a preparation or the sauces but it was very generic very unlike authentic Italian my raviolis were kind of stiff and the juice was so watery the inside of my raviolis disappeared when I cut into them I probably won't go back.

Triple "Good" for Strings Italian Café. We've eaten in several Strings locations and the food is constantly Good, the service equally Good, and the prices always Good. Strings even has Italian cuisine that is friendly to my Type 1 Diabetes diet, and food allergies for the rest of my family. The server ensures that our dietary needs are met in... More
