Thanksgiving dinner. 6:30 dinner and we were told at 7:30 to eat up as they were closing at 8. They had just served the second course and I had o pack the desert to go. $65 for the meal.
The radiator was clanging so loud in the bar area it was very distracting
I wouldn’t go back

Two of the juiciest, tastiest steaks ever (Filet Mignon & NY Strip). Eggplant Rollatini app was so good, it could be added to pasta for a meal. Our server, Oscar, is the nicest guy, who made sure we were well taken care of and our night was special.

My boyfriend and I went to Strega for an anniversary dinner as we were staying at the Boston Park Plaza hotel for the weekend and thought it was a convenient option. We were not disappointed. The service and food were phenomenal. I got a 14 oz NY strip steak and he got the 16 oz ribeye and we could not get over how amazing they both tasted. The steaks were among the juiciest and flavorful cuts of meat we’ve ever had. We also got the creme brûlée and it was so good! We had a great time and will definitely visit again.

STEGA Italiano - Back Bay was a great experience from the minute we walked in until we finished and left. Everyone that we interacted with made us feel at home and like VIPs. I would highly recommend enjoying an evening there.

We have been here a few times, this was the first time since new ownership. We like the strip Strega name better, but still seems just as good! The menu changed a little bit, but still a great selection. The food is still very good. Great ambiance and service. Good portions. Expensive, but in line with other good Boston restaurants. Love the restaurant decor and atmosphere. Very solid

Wait staff too eager to take my plate ‘are you finished with that?’ Also took my glass before I finished my beer. Come on...

Pasta was tasteless but it looked good. But it had no taste.

Went during COVID, social distancing was well into effect and I feel like that contributed to how quiet the place was for a Friday night which was nice for a date night. Our waiter was very attentive and had good recommendations. Went during restaurant week and all the food choices we had were amazing and the cocktails were well made. Place is pricey but I think it's appropriate. Would definitely return.

In a Covid world, it’s hard to feel as comfortable going out to restaurants. But I decided to go for my birthday and dine out Boston. The patio set up was lovely, the service was wonderful and the food was amazing! It’s the new normal, but it felt nice to be able to do something that I’ve missed so much over the last few months. Also: the filet was spectacular!

Very limited choices, which is maybe understandable with the pandemic. However, no sauce options for the steaks, fee starter options and yet a very pricy meal. Normally I love this restaurant but will not return until things improve.

This was the first time I had been to Strip. The wait staff were very friendly and professional. Theobsger Gnocci and Fettuccine were to die for. I would def. Go back for more.
