We ate there again last night. The food was good as usual and the service was exceptional. This is a good place to eat. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. It is always busy and there is a reason.

Have been there a couple of times with a Groupon coupon, so it was a great deal to start. The waiter was very pleasant and made some recommendations pro and con on some items which was appreciated. I just love the salad there it has so much good stuff in it....The bread was yummy. The main course was great. had so much food, had to take the main course and (chocolate something) dessert home. We will go back again without a coupon. It is a great value as the serving sizes are good and the prices are reasonable......

Not great Italian food but very good. Had the scampi appetizers which was great (no skimping on the garlic here) and a nice salad. Was full by the time the main course, Chicken Lombardo, came. It was okay and the pasta was okay too. I took both home and made for a nice lunch the next day. They ran out of Tiramisu which was too bad because the chocolate cheese cake we had was fantastic. I had no doubt that the Tiramisu would have been great. We had a Chianti but we are so spoiled by Lodi wines that the Chianti was so-so. I'll get a local wine the next time. Strings is very popular in Lodi and the place was packed; however, the wait and kitchen staff easily handled the load. Pietro's, also in Lodi, is just a little bit better.

Seating was obtained immediately upon entering the front door. The warm welcome was what would be expected for a "regular" not someone who only appears with a Groupon deal in hand. The menu selection was diverse; service was prompt; the food was delicious and very filling. Thought we would be able to finish off the portions since we had stretched the hours between our previous meal but we STILL could not finish the dinners and had a nice lunch the next day. The special came with one dessert, but we ordered a second carrot cake so we could each savor every crumb. Being retired, we enjoy going early in the week to avoid crowds and have no wait time. :)

We were on a Groupon deal. . .and a deal it was! We had appetizer, 2 entrees with salads, and dessert. After the appetizer of shrimp scampi plus bread, there was little room left for the salad. Before the entrees got to the table we asked for take-home containers for we knew we would not get through the whole thing. When the entrees arrived WOW! They were huge; much more than we had anticipated. Our choices were melt-in-your-mouth perfect. Took home enough to have 2 more dinners. Saved a little room for the giant sized, creamy-moist carrot cake with oh-so -smooth frosting. One piece was plenty for us to share. We have overlooked this gem but not any longer! YUM!!
