    I loved Strega for dinner but I was very disappointed in the brunch. Our server was lax in checking in with us -never did! The menu made promises it never delivered. The food was mediocre- could have gotten better at a diner

    Another creation from Nick Varano and in his persuit of quality food, elegant dining, and superior service he had created another master piece! Wait staff is attentive, knowledgable and friendly (not stuffy) and made us feel welcomed. A large selection of steaks but also creative dishes with fish, chops, lamb, and italian dishes. I recommend the steak tartare for an app, the Chilean sea bass (if you aren't in the mood for steak) and if you have room, the zeppoles for dessert! We will definitely be back for more!

    We were a party of 4 out for a special dinner. We were seated in the corner which was so dark I had to use my phone flashlight to read the menu. Waiter tried to up sell us from the start on the Seafood Tower. When he mentioned they had Kumomoto Oysters, we ordered 18, not the tower. When the oysters came, it was clear they were not Kumomoto. he apologized and offered to take off 1/3 of the $. When we chose the wine ($90), he suggested that we not order that bottle, but another bottle which was $120, or another that was $140. I enjoy Strega Waterfront regularly, but probably will not be back to Strega Prime, whereas the service is far superior at the Captial Grillle and the new DelFrisco's in Burlington.

    Dined on 9/19/2014
    Last year we dined at Strega for our anniversary.It would have been deemed "outstanding".Repeated the experience this year and unfortunately were very disappointed. We were seated at a table in direct line with the front door.It was a cool evening and every time the door opened we felta cool breeze.We ordered from the wine list and the popular item we ordered was "out of stock".It took a while to get the substituted wine. Last year's meal was outstanding--the best steak I had in a long time,the calamari and truffle fries were excellent. Not the case this year.The steak was good not great,the fries were cold,not crispy,the calamari was very good.The service had fallen significantly.Strega is a long way from being the best in the area.

    We celebrated a large family anniversary (14 people) and everything was FANTASTIC. The service was impeccable from the moment we arrived, the food was amazing - all 14 meals hot, at the same time, cooked perfectly. Our waitress (Jackie) was helpful, knowledgable and guided us through sharing aps and sides so we didn't end up with too many. Plenty of staff on hand to get whatever was needed but they seemed to appear from no where when we needed them. It was expensive but well worth it. THANK YOU STREGA for making my parents 60th Anniversary special.

    We were celebrating an engagement...first time at Strega Prime. Can't say enough about the staff...very accommodating and friendly. From the appetizer to dessert the food was exceptional! Would definitely go again...but I would go for a special occasion. Price point for a dinner for four was a little more than a would want to pay on a regular basis. But, if you are looking for a great place for a celebration...look no more. Strega Prime is perfect!

    Once again Strega Prime went above the call of duty. WE were celebrating a birthday and they made every effort to ensure we had a great time. From the salads, which were incredible, to the 42 day dry aged rib-eye, which was about the bet piece of steak ever, to the surprise Nico, (our server) brought a creme broule for the birthday. Everything was GREAT, Joe Esposito runs a fantastic place, Nick Verano should rest easy knowing Joe is in charge and servers like Nico are exemplifying the Strega Prime name

    Disappointed
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    My husband and I went to Strega for our anniversary on a weekday and we were rather disappointed! We went there because Phantom Gourmet recommended and thought it would be a wonderful place to celebrate. My first reaction entering into the bar area was this is cool but then venturing into the dining room I changed my mind quickly. The server was not very attentive and the manager was not interested in hearing about our anniversary. Not friendly at all. We were never asked if we wanted another cocktail and when they brought the order it was incorrect. I had dinner and my husband did not and no one said sorry for the inconvenience. We did receive a free anniversary dessert but had to ask for it. No return and no recommendation from us.

    This restaurant has been amazing the two times we have gone. Once for a graduation, another time for an anniversary. They provide EXCELLENT customer service and the food is amazing. The servers are so friendly and very welcoming. When visiting for an occasion, they give you a complementary and delicious creme brûlée. We left over-stuffed both times. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Strega is a great local date night place with the food and atmosphere that matches a downtown Boston restaurant without the traffic and parking fiascos. The food is fantastic, the service is wonderful and the deep fried red velvet Oreos are TO DIE FOR. Every time that my husband and I have been to Strega, we've had great experiences and will most definitely be returning.

    For dinner, my husband had the sushi tuna and the cap steak. There was a good portion of tuna, but it was not as flavorful as we have had elsewhere. The cap steak (a special not usually offered in area steakhouses) was a good cut of meat but slightly overlooked. I ordered the beet salad- big chunks of beet but not much seasoning. For an entree I ordered the gnocchi, but really was not enjoying it. Our server Lynn could sense I was not enjoying it, and offered to bring the mushroom fettuccine instead, which was much more to my liking. Finally the chocolate mousse cake was delicious! We will probably return because our server was so intuitive and accommodating. Plus the Nutella bread pudding is the next dessert to try!

    Strega is well known for their excellent Italian food and steak choices, but what stood out on my first visit was the service. From the hostesses to the "water boy" (his words, not mine) to our fantastic waitress Marjorie, my friend and I enjoyed entertaining banter and they tolerated our attempts at humor. Strega Prime earned a return visit from me on that experience.
