Having been here before.. A bit of a let down but Reno isn’t fully up and running yet so many reasons why it wasn’t up to par. But..the service is still top notch and if you’re lucky enough to get ol’ Keith, you’re in luck.

I have enjoyed La Strada many times in the past (Long ago, like 40 years ago) it was great back then. Now...the food was not what I expected, mediocre at best, and the menu lacking. The place was really noisy, the kitchen is in the dining room (I HATE that, I can eat in the kitchen in any diner in town). The decor was not what I expected, it used to be lovely, now it's gaudy. Will I be back? Not a chance. There are much less expensive restaurants in Reno that are Much nicer with Much better food. The wine list? Mostly the from the owners vineyard (Ferrari-Carano), good wine, but there are other good wineries out there too.

I made this reservation almost a month before our visit. Booked a room at the El Dorado. (the Large Players Suite). I love this place! So that is why I wanted to have my birthday dinner there. The food was spectacular as usual. But I hated the table. Part of the experience I like is that old dinner house feel. The place was not busy, 630 on a Sunday evening. Yet they put us at a table for two at the retired salad bar. The lighting had issues. Bright right at the table on the corner and the rest of the lights were flashing which made me feel ill. (Since I have epilepsy). Our service was good. But could have been better if she wasn't the only one in our section. In my past visits, the service was always impeccable. Since I live in Gardnerville. I would not go out of my way like we have always done in the past.

Our server Chris was great! The bread basket, fried calamari and homemade gelato (espresso) were fantastic. My risotto was a tad or two under cooked but had great flavor and the scallops were perfect. I am stumped though on how you don’t have the ingredient’s to make the cocktails on your menu. Three drink orders later my daughter finally received a drink for her birthday dinner. Chris was very friendly and never skipped a bear.

As a reno local we have been dining here for years.
I wish la strada would bring back the tasting menu. The food was lacking, in many years last night was the first time I ever had to salt my food here, and the calamari fell short of fresh. The bread they bring used to be a few types of bread, and was just garlic bread.
I will absolutely still come back and I'll tell you why!
First of all our server was great. And the bus team as always was beyond great.
My partner and I were talking about how we probably wouldn't be back due to the food being nowhere near what it was pre-covid for the price, and then all of a sudden Tony, the man who had been our server many times in the past came by and said hello, he completely changed everything for us, went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our night(not once did we complain about anything at all in the restaurant). He brought us a desert that he knew we liked, thank you again Tony. You're the man.
At this point anyone who's reading this considering going to LA strada, do it. You will enjoy your food, and the servers will take care of you.

My only concerns I am chalking up to the food industry (especially those in casinos that were fully shut down) having such a hard time this last year or so and still adjusting back to normalcy. We will be back, because Tony's actions convinced us that la strada has not lost its magic.

La Strada is my go-to Italian restaurant in town. I always, always request for Keith's section. He is an amazing server. I recommend the mushroom ravioli and the spaghetti parpadelle. Homemade pasta is so delicious! I also recommend the prosciutto prawns and scallops/steak. Their lasagna is also very dense but so delicious. I like their gelato for dessert. Basically I haven't had anything bad here and the service is great!

The service was outstanding. Tony was very attentive and informative regarding the specials, drinks, and other selections. Water glasses never got below half full, as that server was also very attentive. Caprese salad was superb, with the fresh mozzarella melting in my mouth. Tomatoes were large and fresh. Carbonara and Bolognase portions were plentiful, but bland. A little disappointing considering the reviews about the chef's expertise and awards. Not certain that a "main" chef put together those meals. A very pleasant surprise with receiving a complimentary Tiramasu in celebration of our wedding anniversary. I had listed that on the Open Table reservation, not really expecting much as usual, but the hostess, our waiter, and the singing of "Happy Anniversary" in Italian from the resident song man was fantastic. Tiramasu was excellent as well.
