Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "While the food was as advertised, the service was not what I would expect. Either understaffed or too many patrons seated at same time. I'll go again to see if that was a fluke or part of the "charm"."

  • "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!!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
