We always love dining at La Strada. We started with the chopped salad - very good. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara, which was excellent. My husband had the tortellini, which were also good. Service on this visit was friendly, but very slow. But our server treated us to a bowl of minestrone soup while we were waiting. Nice touch.

We were there celebrating our wedding anniversary. My wife ordered Grilled Chicken Fettucini Alfredo with the chicken on the side. The order was correct as delivered. the Alfredo sauce was like soup. It definitely wasn't reduced enough and the flavor was very bland. The pasta was cooked correctly and would have been great if the sauce was finished. The chicken didn't taste very good. The char on the grill marks was very pungent, much more than what I think it should have been.

I ordered Veal Picatta. It looked great, but was very under seasoned. The veal definitely wasn't dusted with seasoned flower and it really needed salt and pepper. The veggies and red spuds were both prepared well and tasted delicious.

I told the food server we weren't looking for anything free, but gave her the lowdown on our food. I also told here that we were ready for our check and declined the free dessert. She asked me to stay, so the manager could talk with us. The manager was shocked that we didn't want our free Tiramisu for our anniversary. Beside trying to get us to take the free tiramisu (4 or 5 times), he seemed very patronizing. Never did he say he was sorry that our Anniversary dinner wasn't to our liking. We told him we were used to the La Strada in Napa, really like their food and we were surprised at what we got at la Strada, Reno. He bragged that the one in Napa was a copy and that the one we were in was started in 1973. I will, probably, never return to La Strada, Reno. I will, however, happily return to La Strada, Napa.

I'm a former Restaurant worker, was in the business for many years. It makes me feel bad to say we were very disappointed with our dinner.

The service was excellent from the minute we reached the reservation desk. These people act like they are inviting you into their home. The food was very good. Fish just a little over cooked this time. I look forward to my next visit.

We have been to La Strada many times and booked a reservation to celebrate a personal event. The server was very attentive and the food was excellent. We ordered the Chef's tasting menu which had a fantastic selection of greens, pasta, a surf/turf combo and desert. We would order this again. This is the best Italian restaurant in town in our book.

My wife and I both had the "Chef's choice" selection as well as the wine pairing, What a visual and culinary treat! A couple sitting near us shyly asked what we had ordered. They were amazed by the number of courses and wine brought to our table. I guess we all know what the will be having next time! By the way our server was Michelle she was awesome!

We Have been visiting this restaurant for the last 5 years after our big trade show. The last 3 years we have all gotten the chef's tasting menu with accompanying wine pairings. The last two years this was always excellent. The chef would come out in advance and tell us about what each course before we placed any orders

This year our waiter was rather short when we asked to see the chef on what the courses entailed. The first course ensalade was very good and was shaved brushutte on a a brushcetta with goat cheese and tomato

The primo was pasta 3 ways. This left much to be desired, The risotto with the scallop weren't even warm. Worse the large scallop was over cooked and tasted old. The second pasta gnocchi was also cold in a ragout almost inedible. The only pasta even reasonably warm was the mushroom ravioli

The main course was lamb chop & salmon. The salmon was good the lamb not so much. Several were really fatty, 2 were overcooked the rest were okay. Also if the chef had come out we would have declined the lamb as most of the diners did not like lamb. also every chop was over seasoned Being that I was the lamb lover I tasted each chop

The desserts and wine pairings were the best part of this meal. Our group of 8 has decided in the future to skip the chef's tasting menu and see if they are still doing single dishes as well as the used to

We always like to order the Chef Surprise. All was superb except part of the entree. A real thick lamb chop presented over veggies. Nothing special, but my husband who likes his meat real dead, was not a fan of the very rare chop. Oh well. But the rest of the meal was a satisfying adventure. Love the pasta presentations as always, and dessert a treat.

It is the best restaurant in the area for home-made Italian food. We enjoyed the mushroom ravioli as an appetizer; their signature dish. Also the fried artichokes are moist. The beef tenderloin can literally be cut with a fork. The veal is tender, so all of the veal dishes are delicious. It is our favorite restaurant. The services is outstanding. The wine can be pricey, but worth it. The bread basket is filled with cheese sticks, garlic bread and other unique choices. This is a first class restaurant . It is best to make reservations as it can get crowded. Your dinner will be perfect. The ambiance is lovely. It is a wonderful restaurant for a special occasion.

We have been to la Strada several times over the past 10 years. This time was a disappointment. My husband's halibut was bland, and my risotto with porcini was just meh. We will definitely try it again in the not-too-distant future. I'm hoping it was just a bad night, because we used to really like la Strada.

We had a craving for Italian food & La Strada didn't disappoint. We booked through open table so got seated right away. We had water served right away. Our waiter helped us pick a bottle of Italian wine, which we asked to keep in a certain price range, & it was perfect. My husband had linguine & clams & I had the mushroom ravioli. Our waiter suggested the ravioli & it was delicious! Highly recommend. My husband loved his linguine & clams too, had to take 1/2 of it to go as it was so big. The only thing negative was the plates were super hot, like they had sat under the heat lamps too long. It didn't seem to affect the food, but my husbands linguine looked a little dried out. He didn't complain & I tasted it. It seemed fine. Outside of this, it was an awesome experience. Would highly recommend!
