Strizzi's is an old establishment in the TriValley area. The food was okay and the ambiance is nice. Service was great. Overall a decent place to eat but nothing to rave about.

We ordered several dishes from the Specials and none of them matched the descriptions. Raspberries instead of pomegranate, green onions instead of red. Ordered the brownie sundae and the brownie should have been heated. Took 2 hours for dinner due to slow service

The service was amazing! But the special, Halibut, was the worst ever! So fishy, never had halibut with that texture and the fishiest tasting. After dinner I felt sick and was burping the nasiest fishy taste.

Had chicken piccata, the dish minus the sauce was very good, the piccata was watery and plain. Service was excellent especially considering it was Valentine’s Day. That sauce though is hard to excuse.

We all had shrimp crab salad. Very nice though the thousand / Louis dressing could be better. Consistently tasty. Delicious sourdough. Good service. Thanks!

Overall it was good. Little disappointed after reading specials on chalkboard and choosing one (two people in our party) approximately 10 minutes after ordering we were told they were out of the special (Jalapeño raviolis). Why have it on the board? Why did it take so long to inform us? Even after it still wasn’t removed from the board. Otherwise food was good, service was slow but okay. Waitress was friendly.

Disappointing. Spinach salad was fine as was the chicken risotto, but the lasagna was uneatable. The server dropped off the dessert menus and vanished for 20 minutes. We ended up asking the hostess for our check and skipped dessert.

The afternoon Friday lunch was delicious. Waiter was kind and gave my business associate and I enough time to chat before ordering. The waiter was friendly and helpful. Suggest choices and offered a sample of the Clam Chowder. Very professional.

Small restaurant with a good selection of Italian dishes. Looks like it is loved by local retired couples (we're from out of town). Wine and beer only. My salmon was great, but my wife didn't think much of the spaghetti meat balls. Friendly service. Good value.

The minestrone was the tastiest I've had in a while. The only reason I left some in my bowl was to leave room for the main dish! The rigatoni Bolognese had more of a bite to the sauce than I was expecting, but I gladly finished my meal because of the superbly cooked pasta. Looking forward to our return!

We went to Strizzi's to celebrate our son's birthday with brunch. He had the Crab Benedict, which he thoroughly enjoyed. I had a breakfast burrito and my husband had the the farmer's skillet. We also enjoyed our breakfasts and the lovely ambience at Strizzi's. My son no longer lives in the area, and when I asked where he'd like to have brunch, Strizzi's immediately came to mind. We always have a nice meal there.

We like both the Pleasanton and Livermore locations. Relative to other Italian restaurants it's a little pricier. However I will say that we reliably get great service and food, so I don't harp on the price. You will leave full, and if you order dessert, stuffed.
