Upon entering the restaurant, you can definitely smell something funky in the air. I am not sure if they are trying to infuse the Italian aroma or if they just have a bunch of old furniture with unfavorable conditions. Arriving right around noon, the entire dining room was empty except for the two staff. I have to say, the service was pretty good.
Today, we ordered from the lunch specials. We ordered the Bruschetta Chicken and the Chicken Parmesan. The Bruschetta Chicken was quite tasty. Overall, the cheesy chicken over the olive-oil enriched angel hair pasta was a great combination. The Chicken Parmesan tasted great over the fettuccine pasta. The Parmesan crust covered well over the Chicken. Now, this is where Strings goes from a 4/5 to a 2/5. Including the fact that the restaurant smells funky, there was also some hair found on the pasta of the Chicken Parmesan. With this in mind, I don’t see myself coming back here, let alone suggest anyone come eat here. You might get better luck at a different location, but I am not taking my chances.
Overall, the food tasted good, and the meal went well with the provided bread, soup and salad. However, due to the smell of the restaurant and the hair, I do not suggest eating here.
