Strega North End
Eccellente!The service, food, and atmosphere was eccellente here at Strega ! I believe everything from the bread to the desserts are created by eccellente chiefs that pour pride into their work. The service is outstanding with the waitstaff and bus boys concentrating on each customer to insure that they have the best experience at Strega. I can not wait to return to try some of the other scrumptious dishes. You will not be disappointed, and return many times. So much good food , so little time. Thank You Strega!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHonest reviewStrega is, in my opinion, the best quality food in the North End. The service staff is very attentive and pleasant, especially if you appreciate Italians. They are very accomodating from the time you enter until the valet pulls your car up. I would honestly recommend them to anyone I know, both personally or professionally.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAtmosphereI have been on several occasions. The food and service is excellant whoever it is crowded and noisy. Having said that I will return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive, but Worth It!Each of our party of four picky people who have eaten at most of Boston's high end restaurants, loved our dinners. The Buffalo Mozzarella is the best we had ever had. All the dishes, which included shrimp and asparagus, salmon, lobster and alla amatriciana had all very fresh ingredients cooked to perfection. We had previously been to Strega Waterfront several times and equally enjoyed the North End version, which has a cozier, neighborhood feel. Can't wait to go back again!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSix dishes, six gems - everyoneSix dishes, six gems - everyone very much enjoyed their dinner!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT ItalianStrega was recommended to us by some friends and we were very happy they did. I had the 1/2 lobster w/homemade pasta & tomatoes and my husband had the Sunday dinner with 2 kinds of sausage, meatballs & pasta. They were both amazing. I even asked if they would add artichokes to my dish which they happily did. The atmosphere is very lively and loud as it is a small place but it added to the experience instead of being a distraction. This is not the place for intimate conversation over dinner but it is GREAT italian food. Will definitely be back the next time we are in Boston.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic Italian in BostonFrom the service to the specials Strega North End does it right! Amazing!!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLoudAwesome food and service, obviously a well-known place to go in the North End. It was my first time here. I was a little surprised that I could not hear myself think. The place was louder than Chucky Cheese or any sports bar (including during Bruins playoffs.) I can recommend it as a cool and trendy place to go, with quality food and service. Do not bring a date for a romantic evening though, the tables are close together (4 inches) and it's like trying to talk at an Aerosmith concert. The mussels were good, both salads were good, the pasta was good, the veal was good, as was the beer, the wine, and the service. So in summary it's like you could get the best Italian food in the city in a crowded sports bar that takes reservations.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experiencewonderful hostess and the waiters were very helpful in suggesting a wonderful meal. Great Value.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMmemorable eveningWe were in Boston for my sons graduation and made reservations for 9 people. When we arrived we were greeted promptly and energetically. The waiter was excellent. He was attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wine. He suggested bringing appetizers to the table, which he did, and his choices were delicious. The entrees were very good, made better by the service.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants an authentic Italian dinner.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood fun for a small business groupWe booked Strega for a dinner with a business group (6) in Boston for the evening. Although space between the tables is a bit tight, the overall experience was a pleasure. Our waiter ordered an assortment of antipasti for the table -- divers and all very good. Entrees were equally varied and well prepared. The wall of running videos of the "mob" movies are a bit of a schtick -- but the overall ambiance of this North End Italian mainstay was quite fun and enjoyable.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner- some of theGreat dinner- some of the BEST Italian food I have ever had!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place!!

See you again soon!!!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI booked my reservation atI booked my reservation at Strega to take a first date and it could not have gone better. The ease of the valet parking and the great ambiance and romantic setting set a great tone. Our waiter Gianni made sure our experience was top-notch. Although we were running a few minutes late for our reservation we only had to wait 5 minutes or so to be seated and immediately we were brought bread and a wine list. The food was to die for also. I will definitely be back!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNice but overpricedGreat breads. Ordered shrimp scampi off the menu. Not a good idea. Very tasteless, however, everything else off menu was very good. Overpriced for portions and selection.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOh yea the place is that good!Well this resturant is more than expected in many ways from top quality food to outstanding service. I go back to this place when there are hundreds in the area becuase it has never failed to give me a wonderful and satisfying dineing experience. My waitstaff in particular Carlo Ianniciello, yes he gave me his card, made my whole experience memorable. He suggested appitizers and wine that I would never have ordered and I will now order again. I think that is the best thing you can say about a quality place.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBellisimaQuality ingredients. Very fresh seafood. Beautiful presentation. Attentive waiter. Something on the menu to satisfy everyone.

The waitstaff goes above and beyond to make the holiday special. The food was perfect and the wine perfectly matched.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first vist toThis was our first vist to Strega North End. It was very good. We went during Restaurant Week and tried their 3 course meal. I had an eggplant appetizer, thinly sliced rolled around Ricotta and Spinach in a delicious Marinara sauce. My husband had the calamari which was lightly breaded and he liked very much. For our entree I had the eggplant parmm which was delicious - the pasta was homemade and the perfect al dente consistency. My husband had Chicken Limone with asparagus and potatoes - another hit. For dessert we both had the tiramisu. Slightly different from other places, in a custard cup but it was incredible So light, fluffy and creamy. We will definitely go back. Plus my huband enjoyed his concersation with Carlo in Italian.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food! Not greatFabulous food!
