I had eaten there before which was very good. This time? We were there for over 3 hours. Our entrees took over an hour to receive. And the food quality was below par. One dish had to be sent back because it was cold. Other meals disappointing.

I had a wonderful Cavalli with broccoli Rabe and a lot of sweet sausage. The portion was excellent, and I will have another meal of it later. Our waitress, Teresa, was superb. I also ha a semifreddo dessert which was luscious and loaded with pistachio.

Great selection of drinks -- the ones we had were all delicious. The pasta dishes we ordered were all very good (cavatelli, agnolotti, gnocchi, chicken/fettucine). We received very good service as well. Sat inside on a Saturday afternoon and it wasn't crowded until we were leaving.

We showed up slightly early for our reservation and were immediately seated. Our reservation was for an outside table by the water, when the rain started our seats were swiftly moved to a beautiful view by the window. Luis was our waiter and made AMAZING recommendations from wine to the sauce in our entree. He was prompt and courteous when our glasses were low to refill them. The (assumed) GM came over to thank us for choosing the restaurant and make sure we were comfortable. The food was outstanding and came in perfect portions.
Our entrees were:
Appetizers: Lobster ravioli w/ vodka sauce
Main course: 10oz filet minion med. rare with fresh roasted garlic clove on the side and fettuccini Alfredo with duck egg.
10oz filet minion and truffle fries

Bottle of Bartenura moscato Piedmont.
Highly recommend Strega as a great restaurant just steps from the water and views of the beautiful Boston skyline.

We were celebrating a birthday and had a lovely table for five in the corner and although I had asked for a quiet table, it was far from that. The man at the nearest table was loud and boisterous and made it extremely difficult for us to talk. The food was very good. We shared a generous and delicious arugula salad. My chicken piccata had a creamy yummy sauce. The pasta was served on the side and I would have preferred it under the tender chicken. The two steaks were more than generous. The only flaw was that one was supposed to be rate and it was not. The waiter should have checked that. Lots of good drinks too

My family of 4 adults had a terrible experience!! We were visiting from Philadelphia. The concierge at the Ritz recommended this restaurant. It was HORRIBLE!!!!!! The hostess sat us at a table in a small room with a very loud party of teenagers. It was not the ambiance we expected. The waiter was good but server was horrendous! My husband ordered the chicken parmigiana pizza…he took one bite and ended up with a mouth full of PLASTIC GARBAGE!!! So disgusting!! My daughter and I ordered linguine with clams…half of the shells were empty!! DO NOT GO!!

This used to be the best place on the waterfront. Not so much recently. The food was okay nothing like it used to be. The quality of the food seems to have gone down but the prices are still very high. The service was good. The view is obstructed now with a new building and lots of construction. It's just not the same. With so many great places to pick from I don't think I will be back anytime soon.

Been there a couple of years ago with a friend and it was great! Came back with husband and son and was excited but it was disappointed! Food was not good, except for the meatball and the ribeye! Husband linguine al vongole and was just ok, pasta overcooked and kind of sticked together! Gnocchi with short ribs wasn’t as expected.

Went to Strega for a good for and drinks on a friends recommendation and wasn’t disappointed at all! Danny (the waiter) was amazing and we will definitely be back to have him wait on us again. The restaurant felt comfortable and not stuffy but also upscale and we had a great time. Thank you to the staff and especially Danny!

Disappointed with the fried calamari appetizer. Meatball, in contrast, was delicious. Overall, our meals were good to very good, but not great, and not as good as I remember from prior meals here in years past.

During our visit, the restaurant lost power. The staff thought quickly on their feet and we had an impromptu candlelight dinner. We paired the Italian seafood dinner with wine and had a great night out in the Seaport. Definitely recommend.

I haven't been to Strega in a while and I don't know why. We had a great dinner and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. Service was a bit spotty with long periods when our waiter was MIA but I chaulk that up to lack of help, which they are working on.
I will be back soon!
