La Strada - Eldorado Resort Casino Ratings and Reviews
The grilled octopus appetizer is absolutely perfect- the seasoning has just a touch of spice. I had the Lamb Chops, they had just the right char on the outside without being over cooked on the inside...nice and pink. My boyfriend had the Veal porcini...incredibly tender and the chardonnay sauce was so good. Not our first time here and definitely not our last!!
We opted for the Chefs Table which includes salad, pasta sampler, entree and dessert, all at the chef's option. We were not disappointed. We accompanied that with one of several wine flights available. We have always been very happy with our service and our meals at La Strada for over 15 years.
The food was outstanding at La Strada. However, our experience began on a sour note with the dismissive attitude conveyed by the hostess. We had a 5pm reservation and arrived early at 4:50pm. We sat just outside the bar and waited until 5pm when we saw the hostess invite guests from the bar to their table. I approached the hostess and she said we should go outside and wait in line. By that time a line had formed and we were not seated until 5:20pm. There was only one hostess at 5pm and she would seat one party at a time. There is a significant walk between the restaurant exterior entrance to tables inside so it is fair to say that each party requires the 5 minute walk (it is a casino restaurant after all!) to be seated and return of the hostess to the exterior restaurant entrance. The service was horrible--2 tables didn't get their salads until we completed our entrees and we were all seated within 15 minutes of each other. One of the guests at the table right next to ours sent her entree back with a complaint. We noticed the restaurant manager giving vouchers to all three of those tables which is a nice gesture for poor service and food quality concerns; yet, it is obvious that they could have easily had a 4th incident if we chose to complain. It was 6:45 pm by the time we finally received our check after asking for it three (3) times. At that point we just wanted to leave. Although we believe the food was delicious and high quality, the service is horrendous! I would order carry out!
Amazing! My husband and I decided to try something new this anniversary, and La Strada did NOT disappoint! The food was spectacular, the wait staff clean and professional, and the price was basically what I expected. PS, I recommend the risotto with scallops.
We have been to the La Strada a number of times and really enjoyed it. However, this time was different. We ordered Prosciutto and Melon as an appetizer, the melon was pureed rather than in sections and did not appeal to us. My wife ordered Lasagna which was disappointing. there was little cheese in it and the meat was positioned around the sides of the pasta. My wife called it "poor man's lasagna." My side of linguine with garlic and oil was also disappointing. The linguine was stiff as if it had been sitting around instead of being freshly made, with the hot oil and garlic just poured over it. The pasta should have been fresh since this is not a time consuming process.
Our waitress Libby was wonderful-- friendly and efficient. It is just too bad the food didn't match the service
We frequently dine at the various El Dorado restaurants and always have a wonderful culinary experience. This was the first time the service was dismal. Although the young waiter, and we assumed very inexperienced, was pleasant, the service was extremely slow to the point of aggravation. The food was not at all disappointing, as expected. And we always appreciate the discount when attending a show in the best showroom in Reno.
This was our first time trying this restaurant and it was amazingly delicious the service was great our server was very knowledgeable about the men you made some great recommendations the wife and I shared the mushroom raviolis which were delicious and a white sauce and then we ordered the muscles on the appetizer menu which was an amazing deal regular it comes with red sauce but I asked if they could do it in a white sauce and they did a white wine something or other that came out incredible definitely be going back there my next trip to Reno
Excellent selection of food. Tasteful and interesting food pairings. Something on the menu for every taste and budget. After an excellent dinner one night with my wife, brought a group of co-workers the next night. Without exception all raved of the food. I don't go to Reno often, but next time I do, I will definitely make a trip to La Strada.
La Strada is a Reno icon. The atmosphere is private and the service staff attentive.
Our party started with their famous mushroom ravioli (famous for good reason), then for dinner had chicken, veal and pasta. All incredible tasting.
We finished with panna cotta and creme brule which are made daily, in house. La Strada is not to be missed if you're visiting Reno or a long time residence.
The food was very good. The noise level due to shouting drunken people was very disturbing.
Our waitress tried but seems ill-trained. Waving silverware around in the air, speaks with very high pitch - could not understand her-plus the loud noise in the restaurant. She must have said "Bon Appetite" 20 times ad nauseum.
The service was excellent! The employees worked as a team providing an effortless meal. We were celebrating our 21st Anniversary. We received a free dessert, which was great, but being serenaded in Italian was the best part of the evening. Wonderful food, wonderful staff - a night to remember.
Seated right away. Server inquired about special occasion & if we were attending a show for time constraint. Meal served promptly after appetizer was finished.
Anniversary dinner before show. Server was attentive & knew the menu items with detailed descriptions of plates we inquired about & pointed out other choices. Enjoyable dinner experience.
I took my boyfriend for Father's Day dinner and we ordered the $44 per person chef special. It is a perfect choice for us since this was our first visit and everything on the menu sounded delicious. We got an amazing combination of everything that made our palate happy in every bite. I was so happy to find out Lamb was one of our entree choices although it was pretty petite (but that's fancy restaurants) it was cooked to perfections. Very impressed with the lamb, the scallops w/ risotto, and omg their signature mushroom raviolis were mouth watering delicious. Thank you very much for such a great meal.
Veal piccata sauce was so delectable I savored every bite, including mopping up every drop with the garlic bread. The garlic bread was plentiful. My wife ate mushroom ravioli, calling it the greatest she's ever eaten. Beer pint glass was icy (i.e. Perfect). We've lived here since the '70s and this was our first time at La Strada. Definitely not our last time
La Strada has had a chequered past but now is at the top of its game. The current chef is outstanding and really understands food and how to prepare it. Our meal was absolutely delicious and I was able to talk to the chef afterwards and he gave me some cooking tips.
The service was great.
This was our 28th Wedding Aniversry.
And unfortunately we can't get a do over.
We started out great up to our appetizer and salad. We waited a good 15+ minutes I ordered the Veal Parm (average at best) and my husband ordered the Seafood Linguini & when it arrived my husbands plate looked like it had sat quite awhile, (as the pasta was spaghetti not linguine) was dried out and undercooked. The Seafood was also overcooked and chewy. It was sent back and we felt the evening was wasted. The manager comp'd the meal and we left.
We had such high hopes for a wonderful meal and memorable evening. We left witbout my husband eating his entree.
Not the evening we had hoped and can never get it back. We won't recommend this restaurant.
While traveling to Reno, we enjoyed an excellent dinner at La Strada in the Eldorado Casino following the Cirque show there. The food was delicious- the best veal Parmesan I've ever had, and my wife enjoyed the mushroom ravioli. The service was excellent as well. I highly recommend La Strada.
