We were staying at the Park Plaza and decided to try this restaurant. It was the earlier side of a Saturday night so it was not too busy. Everything was delicious and we appreciated management asking us about our meals and taking our thoughts to heart and bringing us an alternative from the kitchen that was fabulous.

Daughter’s 18th birthday. Family of 4 dinner. Food was ok. 2 dishes were a bit too salty. Appetizers were better than main dishes

amazing restaurant, hands down. attended a solo dinner for a work promotion and was met with such pleasantries and attention. the lobster ravioli was beyond delicious, and the surprise champagne was a lovely treat in addition to one of their fabulous cocktails i’d already had my heart set on. the perfect ending was the tiramisu, presented with a beautiful chocolate congratulations on it. will absolutely be returning for the outstanding staff and delectable menu!

This restaurant has it all, ambiance, great service and food, cozy booths and most importantly, you can hear each other talking with ease. The sound buffers on the ceiling are game changers. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I must say once again Strega Italiano - Back Bay did not disappoint! Coming back after the holidays and being greeted at the front door by Brett and him remembering me and my guests by name, makes it even more special. Than Darwin & Stephanie were outstanding bartenders/servers with tremendous recommendations to me and my guest. To top it off with than an outstanding dinner and cocktails.
I HIGHLY Recommend Strega for any occasion. There are not enough stars to praise this experience and staff. I am looking forward to my next visit. Thank you Brett and team.

Everything about this evening was first class. It was New Year's Eve and we had an early dinner (7:45) before going to a house party. They did not rush our meal and the service was very good. They had a music trio providing dinner music which added a very nice atmosphere for the evening.

Amazing, incredible, delicious food! Portions large (the roasted chicken and the NY Strip steak anyways). Staff was so attentive without being annoying. Ambiance was Italian music, classy staff and dim lights ..best for NYE! I wish there was one in NH So I could go weekly! Wish I could give more than 5 stars!

We sat at the bar and had great service. The food was delicious and the bartenders were extremely helpful when we asked for suggestions on wine. We ordered the veal osso buco and half chicken (chicken picatta), both were great.

Terrific from bread, to soup, to salad, to pasta. Server was attentive and amenable to some special requests. Restaurant makes clear attempt to social distance the guests. Great night. Prices really reasonable for quality of food and wine.

Not only was the server extremely late to our table the same applied to the table next to us. The GM apologized to both our tables but service was slow all night!
Beautiful restaurant, magnificent wine menu and display, but the bubble was burst.
