“Steak and Pasta House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Recently my wife and I were in Reno and we decided to try Cal Neva's Steak and Pasta House restaurant for the second time. Our first visit was surprisingly good. I'm happy to report that the second visit was just as good. The food was excellent for the price. We started off with a mix green salad that was fresh and good. We each had a different entree and they were both tasty. We complimented our meal with the house Chianti, which was above average. The portions were big enough that we didn't have room for dessert. Next time! To top it off the service was friendly and professional. All in all it was a good experience and a good valve for the money. We will be back.

My wife and I travel from Placerville, CA to Reno 5, 6 or 7 times a year. The prices and food at the Top Deck Restaurant can't be beat. BUT, the Steak and Pasta House is splendid. We do eat there often. On Thanksgiving, a few weeks ago, we were in downtown Reno looking for a good Thanksgiving dinner. The other casino's had lines of people lined up to pay $30 or more each for their buffets. Probably over a half hour or more in line, we kept walkin'. The Cal Neva had a Thanksgiving dinner for under $10 each. Turkey or Ham. Including drinks AND desert! The food was great, the service was very friendly, and the food was plentiful. All we could comfortably eat. Unlike a buffet--they bought the food and drinks to us. We were VERY happy with our dining experience at the Club Cal Neva!

We've recently made several trips to the Reno area and the best meal at the best price can easily be found at Cal Neva!! They have attentive and friendly staff with good food, 24 hour Keno and a comfortable atmosphere. We most heartily encourage you to give it a try!!

My wife and I drove up to Reno from Los Banos, CA. It was my 50th birthday. We ate at the Steak and Pasta house in the casino. The customer service through our waitress and the acting supervisor was above and beyond. The food was delicious too. This restaurant is very reasonable, many restaurants will charge more for what is on the menu. It's a good find. If your in the area I suggest taking the time to check it out. The Club Cal Neva has been around for many years. I hope it stays around for many more.

We recently spent one night in Reno since being there decades ago. Sad to see that Reno has not re-invented itself as Las Vegas so successfully done. Still some fun there and the gambling is good. We found $3 craps for the night and plenty of older slots no longer seen in LV.

We stayed at this property and found it more of a Motel type operation than a Hotel. Reception, Parking and house-keeping staff were friendy and helpfull, The Hotel is run-down and in need of serious upgrading. We both awakend with plugged noses and scratchy throats, we suspected the HVAC system is also poorly maintained. Only one of two elevators was in service and the one working was also not it good operation.

The room had a coffe maker and small refridgerator and at only $54 USD was an inexpensive night stay.

We only stayed the one night

Room Tip: Higher floors are likely to be quieter. As I recall there was about 15 floors (+-).

My wife and I have been traveling to Reno for many years and have always enjoyed the Sportsbook area for "a dog and brew", but the Steak and Pasta House has really continued to shine. It first opened as a Pasta House and was an immediate hit with good food, reasonably priced and a wonderful house wine, served by people who took pride in their work. The ship I served in during VietNam had two mini-reunions in Reno and both times the Pasta House hosted a dinner for over 30 people with the food and service being excellent. Now as a Steak and Pasta House, my wife and I continue to enjoy excellent food and service and special thanks to Cathy for her attention to detail, trained staff and efforts of the cooks in preparing eye appealing dishes.

We go to reno several times a year and always try to find new restaurants to try. The Cal Neva had a hidden Gem called Copper Ledge. Great meal, great service for a reasonable price. The last time we went we couldn't find it but found out they moved it to the Steak and Pasta. We were thrilled. My husband's favorite is the fetticine with Lobster. I always get the filet mignon. We have never had a bad meal there.

We also love the chili cheese fries and the breakfast sandwiches at the Casino Grill. Awesome!
