Description: Strings opened its doors for the first time in Sacrament in 1987. Now, nearly 30 years later and under the original ownership, Strings is still successfully serving the original area and locations along central and northern California. Strings Italian Cafe Merced prides itself on serving both classic italian dishes such as spaghetti and homemade meatballs and tortellini chianti but also modern and equally unforgettable dishes like salmon balsamic, zesty cioppino and our famous gluten free and vegetarian "zoodles". Whether you have been a beloved customer from the beginning or are looking for a restaurant to call your favorite, we hope you will come in, sit down and enjoy everything we have to offer.

We use this restaurant often for take-out and have had excellent results. Yesterday we each had a Caesar salad (one chicken and one shrimp) and an order od delicious mussels. No waiting and tasty food.

“Excellent Italian Place”
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”
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”
Reviewed September 3, 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
