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!

Sent my best friends here for their 7th Wedding Anniversary! The staff was sooo helpful! They took my card over the phone so I could buy dinner on their special night. They also gave them a message delivery when it was time for them to get the bill so that they never got or saw a bill at all. It was handled very well and classy. Will definitely be back and send others!!

We had a fantastic dinner at Strega on Friday night thanks to our amazing sever, Danny. Danny went above and beyond to make sure our table was taken care of the entire time. The food was delicious. Highly recommend coming to Strega and definitely ask for Danny!

Strega is 5 stars all around. The food and drinks were amazing and the service was top notch. Danny was our server, and he was very accommodating and friendly. One of the best waiters I’ve ever had at a restaurant. If you’re ever in Boston, come to this restaurant. You won’t be disappointed.

It was my cousin’s Birthday, Everything was good the waiter was nice but I felt like he was gone for way to long at times. My friend ordered her steak medium well & it came back very well, she ate it because she was hungry. The manager came & offered her dessert on him & we never received it. The food was tasty overall the service was not bad just that the waiter to long times to check back we would have to hunt him down. I felt like he had tables in several different sections. But we had a good time in general!

We reserved the Chefs Room for our party of eight. Genti and Sarah were our servers. The room was very private, and tasteful. The servers were helpful with the menu and allowed for pretty much any changes very easily. The appetizers were delicious and perfectly times so you were able to relax with out your dinner arriving on top of it. The dinner was superb and all of it was cooked to perfection and piping hot. The pastry chef made a cake for us that was on point designwise and so good. I will def be coming back.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Got our appetizer and drink order wrong. Did not have wine that was listed on the menu. Initially gave us other tables order and then had to have everything remade. Food taste was hit or miss. Waiter was very friendly and clearly doing his best but it seems like the restaurant in general is very disorganized and needs some things worked out

Fairly nice dining experience although it seemed like they are almost trying too hard to be creative with their dishes and going a bit too far at times. Dishes seemed too complex - too many conflicting flavors - and missing the beauty of simplicity. Could also definitely do without all the TV screens playing scenes from The Godfather, especially the bloody scenes... really... while dining?.. Seems like they're trying too hard to be trendy. Dial it back a bit and it would be a better experience.

We had a very nice experience and the food was delicious. Loved the mussels and the meatball. Thank you for the Birthday dessert. The cannoli was simply delicious along with the tiramisu. The Sangria and bread with herbed butter was awesome! We would recommend this place and will probably be back again to try some of the other dishes.

This place is a MUST go. I take my parents here for new years eve dinner and took my mom this past mothers day and it was just excellent. The drinks, food, service, the ambience just a perfect experience. This place is even great for kids, my 7 year old daughter, absolutely loves this place as well.

We sat in the patio outdoors. The food was phenomenal, the ambiance could have been better. There were other restaurant patrons on the patio that were very loud and did not consider others eating around them. There were plenty of families like mine that questioned the amount of noise we were hearing while trying to take in the view and food experience. Disappointed that no one from the restaurant checked in on that.

In general the food was decent. The calamari starter was disappointing, it simply needed some seasoning. The oysters were delicious. The entrees were okay. My pesto lobster dish, I found the lobster a bit tough, a bit overcooked. The Cioppino was passable, but not up to the standard of other Boston area restaurants. One of the group had a mussel starter as their “main” (much to the disappointment of the waiter, it appeared) this dis was absolutely fabulous. Finally the gnocchi dish was also quite good. The server, was at best, inattentive. He performed the bare minimum, at best. One other item, the cocktail one of they party received was really, really poor, a bare trace of alcohol present. So poor we had to send it back, the replacement drink was as it would be, and was quite delicious. The dining atmosphere was very nice, probably the best part of the experience. So, it was an okay experience, but there are so many better options for excellent dining in Boston, so we won’t be rushing back anytime soon.

Food was nothing great, Caesar salads served with brown edging on lettuce, hearts of Romaine not cut up, dressing had little flavor, Entrees were fairly average Italian pasta dishes, probably would not order them again if we went back which is debatable, no atmosphere, little ambiance at all. Overall very dissapointing.
