Diner Reviews
  • "It's our favorite place for a special dinner. The food and wine never disappoint."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "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."

  • "From the time we got there and greeted by Monica the Hostess, to the outstanding service by Chris our waiter serving us a beautiful, perfectly cooked meal it was a great experience. Can't wait to go again!"

  • "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!!"

  • "After 25 years of patronizing this establishment, what can one say. It was TERRIFIC the first meal we consumed and 25 years later and countless meals -- La Strada continues to be Number 1!!!"

  • "We always reserve at La Strada before taking in a show at Eldorado. Mushroom ravioli always great. The Carano wines are very attractively priced"
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "Excellent restaurant hidden in a casino....a good choice is the "Chef's Tasting" - a four course meal that's not only an exceptional value, but guaranteed delicious. The mushroom ravioli are a MUST TRY, they melt in your mouth. Added bonus: free valet parking. Excellent wine selection."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "We had a group of 6 and the service was fantastic. Very good wine selection. Food was great everyone received exactly what was ordered. Well prepared and presented. "
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Food was awesome, service was very good. Went to pay the check and used an OpenTable gift card. The server told me it was their policy to only honor 80% of the value of gift cards...for "security reasons." This is absolute baloney, and just makes the establishment look cheap. It was really a shame because everything else was excellent. It's a shame that management would have a policy that alienates it's customers right when they are about to leave a tip for the server. Fortunately I was a waitress for 7 years and understood it was management's fault for having such a stupid policy. Always tip on the full amount of the check, before discounts and gift cards. It's only fair to the waitstaff, who provides the full amount of service."

  • "Very nice place for clients and groups. Their mushroom ravioli was superb. My group had a wonderful time."

  • "Outstanding food and service. Originally reserved for myself and my wife, two other couples joined us and restaurant was able to accommodate us. All couples enjoyed the meal and would definitely return."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My wife and I had a wonderful dinner - perhaps the best part of it was the excellent service provide by the wait staff. They were the best - always attentive without the feeling that they were hovering. My wife and I felt like royalty. The appetizer was exceptional. We had the shrimp and mushroom ravioli. It was the best thing we have had to eat in a long, long time. We talked about coming back just so we could have a full meal of these special raviolis. The restaurant was louder than I expected. There was a table of about 8 people not to far away and things were a little louder than I expected. Overall, we had a great time."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "La Strada is a great place to enjoy dinner. The Matre D walked us to our table and told the reason for the name of the restaurant. The food is fantastic! Service is just as good as the food"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "La Strada Our wait person recommended the chefs tasters menu. The chef prepares special items that even the wait staff doesen't know about. We were pleasantly suprised by all four courses. Some items like the lasagna are not on the regular menu. It was a very enjoyable experience. I woud recommend La Starda to anyone visiting the Reno area."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We have been meaning to try La Strada for a while, and this was the perfect opportunity. They tout their mushroom ravioli, so three of us went for that, and it was fabulous - not too rich or heavy, but just right. The service was very good, as well. Our only complaint was that there was a large group at the next table that were having a little too much fun - they were loud and somewhat profane, and that affected our enjoyment of the evening. I was going to say something to the manager, but I saw the maitre'd chatting with them and basically encouraging their merriment, so I figured we were the only ones bothered by it and said nothing. Once they left, our experience improved greatly."

  • "An Italian restaurant where a little Italian is actually spoken. Chef oversees made-to-order dishes. Servers are not always attentive, but it works. Veal picatta is to die for!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "We had 11 people for dinner and all felt the food was great. We bought Italian wine from list and it was quite good."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Service was spot on. All the food was outstanding, but most notably was my entree, which was the best risotto I've ever had! Top it off with a glass of Ferrari Carano Tre Terre Chardonnay and it was perfection!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Food was OK at best and I was surprised to see that they stated they were one of the nations top 10 Italian restaurants. I have eaten at many Italian restaurants across the country and they do not even begin to compare to some of the best. I will say that our server was wonderful."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Although I can't pronounce most of the dishes. The Italian food was the best this gringo ever had."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This is one of the top three Italian restaurants in Reno. The food is really good and they also have a wide selection of great wines to chose from. If you like Italian food they will have something on the menu for everyone. We have been there many times , always had a great meal & time and will go back again."

  • "I proposed to my girlfriend after dinner at La Strada. She said yes and I can't help but think the magnificent meal we shared helped seal the deal. Best Italian food I've ever had and I'm a hard to please Italian."

  • "From the moment we walked up and were greeted by the host, our experience was wonderful from beginning to end. Our server, Mateo was excellent. The food was superb. We left the restaurant with such a feeling of comfort and contentment that carried through the whole evening. We look forward to our next visit to La Strada."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "We loved the old world Italian ambiance. The service was hit and miss. The server stated he would bring us bread when he took our drink order, but it never materialized, once we were able to get his attention we reminded him; even though another table he was waiting (seated after we were) had faster service. We each had a veal dish and they were both cooked perfectly. Due to the slow service we did not have time to try a dessert as we had allotted 1.5 hours for dinner before we were due at a show at the same casino. We had also skipped appetizers and soup/salad. So 1.5 hours for one drink apiece, bread basket, and entree. The food was good, but if we go back we definitely want a different server."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Had a great evening with friends. We all had different selections from the menu and we all thought our individual orders were excellent. Great ambiance away from the casino noises. Had one side dish that wasn't quite up the standards set by the the other food and the waiter immediately replaced this within minutes with an alternative suggestion. The service throughout the dinner was outstanding. Highly recommend La Strada."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "The staff of La Strada is competent and considerate. All work very hard to make the guest's visit an "experience", instead of just a meal. Adjectives like "unobtrusive", "polite", and "concerned" fit perfectly. Food portions are very adequate, so some eaters might want to split meals. Respectfully submitted.

It has been many years since the last time i have eaten in La Strada and i will tell you, The food is still Great.. The Mushroom Raviolis are to die for, i just wish there was a little more.. The full Italian atmosphere is a plus. I feel to get the best experience from your visit is to sit close to the kitchen counter…"
