The ambiance was fine, but the food was not authentic Italian food so it was not to my expectations. The also ran out of a couple items a few people within our party wanted.

Combination dinner is good value. Glass of wine on the pricey side. Food was hot, delicious and service was good.

Carmelized onion hamburger was just so so - bordering on bland. Pasta dishes much better. Outdoor eating is great but very noisy with traffic in front. Salads are good size

Service very attentive

Service was horrible I had a reservation when I arrived it took over 15 minutes for anyone to come and seat us. Once seated the waitress took another 15 minutes to take our order then got the order wrong and continued to forget things and not come back. The food is very good at this Strizzi's but the service sucked.

Our server could have been a little friendlier. She was professional but a bit on the cool side. The salad (Caesar) was a bit wilted but I was amazed by how yummy the gluten free spaghetti was! Sauce and meatballs (although not totally gluten-free) were excellent, too. The Early Bird Specials were very reasonably priced.

Delicious specials featuring wild mushroom ravioli and seafood fettuccini were ideal for Friday in Lent. Justin gave us great service, and the Bananas Foster bread pudding was fantastic! Always a great experience!

The crab Benedict came out without crab and the hollindaise saturated the plate. The presentation was mediocre, but the food wasn’t horrible. My meal was not worth the price. Not sure I would go back.

Huge disappointment. They advertise open until nine. Walked in 8:10 with a reservation. They told us we have to order fast and dessert in absence if we want it. Apparently they wanted to close the kitchen early. Server clearly didn't want anyone coming in at 8 pm on a Sunday. Food was meh. Portions are small and overpriced. Disappointed I chose this for my daughters birthday dinner before the movie. I'll never go back to any of them after going to the one in Pleasanton many times and Rigatoni's. Never again.

I would’ve given 5 stars overall if it hadn’t been for the dirty bread plates and silverware on our table. Our server, Justin (I believe) took good care of us by getting us freshly washed plates after we mentioned the problem. Then when we opened our napkins and found dried food on our silverware, we just cleaned them off with our napkins. My smoked pork chop lunch special w/mixed green salad was delicious, and my son enjoyed his grilled chicken lunch plate (which seemed a bit pricey at $19). My husband felt his Caesar salad wasn’t anything special and didn’t finish it. It’s been awhile since we’ve been to Strizzi’s, and I’m just not sure if we’ll return. Very disappointing for a nice restaurant, especially on Christmas Eve!

I have been going to Strizzi's for 20 years. Often I get take out, but this evening we were celebrating a birthday. The food and service is excellent and always consistent. We had the opportunity for the first time to meet the owner of Strizzis. It was great to hear him talk about the history and how they are using his mother's recipes from Italy. They prepare everything fresh and fillet the fish onsite. I highly recommend the restaurant.

Food was good, service was fine, noise was very high - hard to converse with each other. Waitress was very nice. Table location was good. Price seemed high but we took some home, so there was obviously more than we could/wanted to eat.

I’ve been going to Strizzi’s for about 20 years now; it’s my family’s “go to” restaurant! I have never had a bad meal or experience there! Food is consistently excellent, good choices on the menu, and always great service. Their cheesecake with the raspberry sauce is to die for! If you haven’t been there yet, then I strongly recommend you give them a try, you won’t be disappointed!

Salads were good quality. Cajun chicken risotto was marginal, would’ve been better if the chicken was grilled. Service was attentive this time.

First: food was very good & prices were reasonable, but not cheap. This was the first time we had dined at Strissi's Livermore and it was on a Saturday night (prior to a show at the Livermore Performing Arts) so it was busy. Because it was busy it took us 15 minutes to get our table (although we had reservations). Food took probably 20 to 25 minutes to arrive after ordering...but again it was very busy. So the bottom line is that the food is good, reasonably priced, but the service was a little slow - but this could have been due to how busy it was. I would recommend, but give your self plenty of time if it is a weekend and you have a movie or show to see.

This is one of our "go-to" restaurants since moving here ten years ago. Always excellent food and great waiters. We have taken many out of town guests to this establishment and they all want to go again when they return to visit with us!
