The day was a rush for me when I took a chance for a quick lunch at Strings, in Modesto. The place is small in size but big in excellent food. I had the Minestrone Soup and it was hot and loaded with fresh veggies. Next, I had the Ravioli Cremora and I was pleasantly surprised. The ravioli's filling was... More

Felt like having Italian Food, so I stopped in for the first time in a long time. It brought back old memories and made me wonder why I don't eat there more often.

Salad is the high point. Go to Chefs of New York a half mile south for great Italian food at a cheaper price plus the make pizza....

Our group of 10 came for lunch recently. Room was quiet and set up well; service at all times was stunning. Food was not notable but OK; a little expensive, we thought.

There is nothing great about their food or service. It's just mediocre. We went on a Friday night and had to wait about 10 minutes.

Took my wife to dinner alone and thought we would go here since it had been awhile. Great choice, our server was excellent, the food was great as always. You have to order their salad, it's the bomb!

I had been a fairly regular customer at Strings many years ago, but somehow got out of the habit. My wife and I were looking for some takeout food that was out of our routine, and I suggested Strings. We had an older menu at home, and my wife chose a chicken and pasta dish that wasn't on the restaurant... More

Flavorless salad dressing and red sauce. Refrigerator tasting pasta. Strings used to be good. So sad.

In order to celebrate my son's graduation from high school, we decided on Strings vs. a larger chain restaurant (we had a large party of 12, and we were able to make a reservation beforehand). I have to say that our experience at Strings, from the service to the food, was perfect! Our server was super attentive and helpful, frequently... More

Good Food but not extraordinary. The kids like to eat there. We like the family salad and the family soup. I keep thinking I want to try their desserts but never have room after the meal. Will have go in just for dessert.
