“Excellent Italian Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

I've had the opportunity to eat at Strings several times, and it's always been top quality food. The outdoor dining is a plus, and the all you can eat nights are even better! Great restaurant!

“Excellent Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

We were on a road trip (Santa Barbara - Merced - Burlingame CA) and had dinner at this restaurant. The restaurant is large,excellent food anf service. However, it is kind of noisy. I had the Shrimp Scampi with angel hair pasta and veggies. It was excellent the pasta was cooked just right and it was perfectly spiced. Worth a comeback....

“always friendly always yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

always friendly always yummy and the prices are not bad at all, Italian food. Outdoor area looks out over large modern church with lots of grass and bells that go off on the hour. It gets hot here-but they have misters on hot days

“Good and Consistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

As locals, we find ourselves returning to Strings when we are looking for a relaxed meal out. The servers are always friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and specials. A moderately priced wine list is available to complement your meal - glass or bottle. We always enjoy the family style salad, which will be re-filled as needed. The salad is always fresh and crisp. From a variety of sea-food (scampi, calamari, scallops) to short-ribs done al-forno and served with pasta, we have not been dissapointed. Food is always served hot and the timing of courses has been good. I never feel like I have to rush my salad or appetizer becasue the main is ready.
