    La Strada offers good food at reasonable prices in plush surroundings. Good wine, lots of bread, not a huge menu, but varied. The piped music (Sinatra) was a little loud and the waiter a little overbearing, but overall, a good dinner.

    My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary at La Strada. The restaurant was highly recommended. Our Server Tony was outstanding, what a lovely young man. He was the highlight of our evening. La Strada at some point was a highly rated Northern Italian eatery, we expected great things. My husband had the Chicken Parmesan and I ordered Chicken Marsala, both were ok, nothing special. Thankfully the prices were quite reasonable so we didn't feel that disappointed. It's a nice dinner out, just not the level we were expecting.

    We took are young children to dinner here not knowing it was such a nice restaurant, that i would say is better for a couple or an adult group. We were first sat among many couples and small groups in a quiet corner. After being in the car for two hours and seeing the faces of some of the other guest we asked to be moved just in case the kids acted up. They moved to an area next to the kitchen so in was a little loud. The lamb was some of the best i have had. The waiter we had was very good especially to are children. The biggest problem was sometimes being forgot about while they attended to a dinner party in a private room. I would definitely go again just with the kids.

    This is a amazing restaurant is you don't go during the high season times when they are really busy. I have been going to La Strada for many years and almost all of the time the service is excellent, the restaurant is quiet, Frank Sinatra is playing in the background, the full bar and wine list accommodates everyone's tastes, and their food is wonderful. I could dine on their bread basket alone. If I was given my choice of a last meal on this earth, for sure it would be their wild mushroom ravioli!

    We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our waiter, Josh, greeted us with a special anniversary greeting. He was friendly, helpful but not too casual. Everything we had was beautiful to look at and tasted even better. My wife had veal as it is her favorite and it is hard to get in Reno. It did not disappoint. After dinner they brought us a dessert and sang an anniversary song in Italian. They feature Ferrari Carano wines at a reasonable price.

    We were in Reno for a little getaway and decided to try something different. We were so happy with this restaurant. Both my husband and I had the early bird specials which included their mushroom ravioli's and the steak. Everything was delicious including their bread basket. Loved their garlic bread! For dessert we shared the tiramusu. The whole meal was heavenly. We will be back! The service was exceptional and we were served so quickly!

    While this great old Reno Restaurant still has great food, the services was not up to par at our recent visit. We had let the hostess know that this was a birthday dinner, but did not receive the usual treatment for that. Our waiter was slow and inattentive throughout the ordering, serving and bill with noticeably long periods between visits to the table. The signature mushroom ravioli were perfect as usual and Caprise salad (our personal measure of any Italian restaurant) memorable. Our guests for the evening, though long time Reno residents, had never been to La Strada before and enjoyed the food very much. Scallops with risotto, Grilled Salmon and Veal were all commented on.

    We booked a reservation on Open Table at our favorite Italian restaurant in the El Dorado Casino. Service was excellent, food was outstanding as usual. We ordered their signature mushroom ravioli as an appetizer, arugula salad, veal marsala and the affogato for desert. Everything was outstanding. We plan on visiting Reno next month and booked another reservation to celebrate our anniversary.

    Our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The pasta and seafood dishes we highly recommend - in particular, the seafood linguini; gnocchi and carbonara. The latter dish was wetter than you would experience in Italy, but delicious nevertheless. And the gnocchi was light as pillows. Several tables were celebrating birthdays that night and the waiters came out to sing happy birthday in Italian.

    It was plesantsant. A little slow on delivering the food, and they were missing items offered on the dish, ie they were out of oysters for the seafood linguini, and subbed clams, the squid was rubbery and the broth was very watery. So the fish juice was being splatter over our clothing. The meal was not worth the money. But it was quiet. I would not rate the restaurant 4 stars

    Wow! What an amazing restaurant! Our waiter (Tony) was so attentive and super nice. Very professional but didn't make us feel uncomfortable as a younger couple in a formal dining restaurant. The food was delicious. We had linguini and mussels and fettuccine Alfredo. The half order was plenty as their portions are large. Their wine list was very large. I had a glass of Chardonnay (Russian River something or other) which was recommended by our waiter and it paired perfectly with the fettuccine Alfredo. Overall I would recommend La Strada to everyone. Such a great find and a memorable experience for our first time to Reno!

    We have lived in Reno for 12 years and had eaten in a number of the El Dorado's restaurants but never La Strada. We were very pleased with the menu and our service. My wife had the arugula salad and I the Caesar. Both were excellent. My wife had the spaghetti carbonara which she said was possibly the best she has ever had. My seafood fettuccine was chock full of clams, muscles, shrimp and calamari. It too was very good. Wine list was good and we had a very good Pinot Grigio. We'll be back!

    Nicely decorated, comfortable atmosphere, food was very good. Our waiter spoke so softly that I had to ask my hubby to repeat everything he said. My ears aren't that great but I asked him to speak a bit louder but to no result. I've had better waiters at some of the other restaurants in the hotel. The minestrone was to die for wish I had gotten 2 cups. The clams were delicious , veal meatballs were awesome! We will return but hopefully have a different waiter.

    I stayed in Reno area quite often and I walked by this restaurant many times but never had a chance to try this until recently. Once you walked inside the restaurant, it looked just like an old family restaurant in Italy. Very nice and classy decoration. I really like the 'surprise' tasty menu since the waiter wouldn't tell us what we will have. We loved everything we ordered so far ( appetizer, pasta, entree and dessert ). Can't say any negative about this place and we went back a second time in just one week.

    Lastrada food was quite tasty. We had the cold antipasto nice but small amount. Not really adequate for two. Main course was the beam chop parmagiana, very nice, ample. Wait service was very attentive and friendly but service was far too fast. Main course came out as they were clearing the appetizer. Overall value for $$ was high.

    Great place for Italian food and great wine list. Come hungry and leave full. Home made raviolis are to die for. Book the reservation online and add in the notes if this is a special event and they will come through. It was my wife's birthday and at the end of the meal they all came out with a slice of cake candle on top and all waiters sang HB day. Nice!!
