American | Syracuse, Central New York

We went with another couple. My husband and I had never been there, and our friends had been, but a long time ago (not since the new ownership). Well, we all left very happy! We started with drinks out on the front porch (and if you're familiar with Skaneateles, you know you WANT to be on the street people watching. Drinks were wonderful (they have a creative cocktail menu). Very comfortable rooms (quite a few) with nooks and crannies to sit in while you wait for a table. Service was fantastic (no obtrusive), and the food was great. The homemade rolls were a nice touch, and although they serve them to you, they give you an option of having more than one. I had the pappardelle with sirloin (smokey and spicy, which I like), and the rest were steak. The portions are not huge (which is good for me but probably less than what men like). Everyone raved about the mashed potatoes (I know, right? but they must have been good!) Also had dessert and coffee (the homemade chocolate/coconut ice cream and the flourless torte). No one complained afterwards.... Skaneateles is a wonderful day trip, and if you're looking for a very nice place to eat, make reservations ahead and enjoy a nice 1 1/2-2 hours. More

Fusion / Eclectic | Syracuse, Central New York

Lovely restaurant. Our waiter was welcoming and affable in spite of a lack of support from the kitchen. The bottom line is the food was great and the kitchen was unprepared for the graduation dinner push. Notes... I waited well past the normal amount of time for someone to greet us. When it came to ordering one app was eliminated due to what was described as a quality problem (all good) When drinks came another app was sold out and then a few minutes later another was sold out. When one of our guests noted her vegetarianism, first she was told the Chef would create something, then she was told the Chef would not do it. She was offered a salad and for the app to be removed from the bill. A) That's amateur hour B) It was clear they didn't want to accommodate my guest C) Openly discussing a discount at the table is not the appropriate protocol. In conclusion, the food was wonderful. Very satisfying. The staff is good and the kitchen needs to be better prepared and accommodating. More

Another fantastic evening at Strada Mia . Reservation honored on time and seated quickly to ice waters and a basket of fresh bread and there dipping amazing dipping oil. Our server , Destiny , came and took our drink orders , informed us of specials and highly recommended the Mozzarella Stack , which we did order as an appetizer. We are glad we did , it was simply the best we have ever had in any restaurant in any city in any country. We ordered 2 entrees that arrived in perfect time and were well presented , exactly as ordered as we requested a couple changes to both . The food was delicious and portions more than welcoming . A wonderful evening out dining and wonderful service from the host and our amazing server Destiny . We will certainly visit again very soon ! More

We visited here for our anniversary on a Wednesday evening. We found the restaurant to be open and inviting. Staff was friendly and attentive. The menu offered an array of choices ranging from small plates and burgers to high end gourmet entrees. The food was prepared perfectly to our specifications and was served hot. Of particular note was the veal chop served with creamy polenta. Outstanding! Prices were moderate but to be expected for such quality. We strongly recommend you try Citronelle for your next special occasion or for just a relaxing meal after work. More
