This is the real deal. If you are looking for chicken parm .... not your place. If you are looking for authentic, fresh and delicious Italian food from the Naples area of Italy this is it. Chef Mongillo uses locally sourced ingredients to create amazing dishes. Great drink/wine list as well, including wines from his family's own vineyard in Italy. Treat yourself.

The cheeses, capicollo, caciocavallo prosciutto, bread, and salami in the Misto were the best we've ever tasted. Equally excellent were the eggplant, and the Prosciutto and Rucola pizza. The house red was a perfect complement. Jenna was the only server and she handled the customers with grace, charm, and a warm smile. Our only disappointment was the tiramisu. We'll definitely be back.

What a gem in Milford! We are so happy to have this restaurant's arrival. The pizzas are amazing - don't expect the gooey cheese and slop. This is truly European pizza (the way pizza is meant to be). Flavorful, just the right texture and crust. The appetizers are actually impressive and modern. Don't expect fried mozarella. Service is great. Everyone is very friendly. We are so happy to finally have a restaurant that's not just burgers, sloppy pizza and wings.

The only thing missing? A few entree's to add t the mix when we don't feel like having pizza. Otherwise, don't change a thing!

This was the best restaurant we’ve been to in a very long time. The food was phenomenal. You can taste the freshness and uniqueness in each dish. I would eat every meal from here for the rest of my life and still love it. The vibes and the staff were next level. 5 stars just isn’t enough for the quality that Strega delivers. Outstanding

The sound was loud- need rugs? The service was slow...but I expect the waiter was new. Food really great. Prices were good but not great. Overall...I would go back. The tuna tartar and pizza were exceptional. As was the olive oil gelato.

First Impressions upon entering- stylish, well-placed and designed decor. Friendly and attentive service throughout meal. Minor hiccup was kitchen was out of an item and we found out after we ordered.

As the sun set, the interior lighting became noticeably bright and not balanced for the warm cozy decor. The white LED lights and fixtures provided a modern twist, but made for an unbalanced ambience, whereas a warmer dimmable lighting would have suited the place better. We had an earlier reservation, and it was not crowded initially, but filled up and the noise level was quite notable and disrupted conversation levels, unfortunately.

Menu- Authentic Italian cuisine as website states, not a pasta dish on the menu, so be forewarned. We had the Misto (meat & cheese platter) and the Carciofi & Finocchio (Arugula, artichoke and fennel salad) and an additional flatbread to savor each decadent bite. Every bite was flavorful and impressive!

Nice selection of New World and Old World wines in both reds & whites, by the glass. Decent by the bottle selection as well, fairly priced.

We will be back to try Strega again! We wish Danilo's Milford venture much success, as we enjoyed his Branford restaurant, and was sad to see it leave our town.

First of all the decor is beautiful. The place looks very upscale and everyone was really nice. Our waitress was very polite and attentive, as well as the manager who came by the table to share a story about the restaurant. If you like seafood I would highly recommend the Salumi Di Mare. It’s basically a charcuterie board of different fish and it was AMAZING! Could not recommend it enough. One of the best things I’ve ever eaten! Following that we had the Mortadella & Pistachio pizza, which was delicious. I never thought I’d love a pizza with nuts on it but this was really unique. Everything on the menu was made with care and presented beautifully. This place was very impressive. I wish I took pictures because words don’t do it justice but please check this place out! Definitely going back!

The food is amazing. The freshest ingredients straight from Italy where the chef/owner is from. If you are looking for the usual Italian menu this is not your place.

The pizza was good, ingredients fresh but the cook on the pizza was terrible. The Margarita pizza had great taste but the pizza was watery & crust soggy. Please bake the pizza so the crust is crisp!

The food was EXCELLENT! Small menu, but would order everything on it. The noise level was a bit high, but mostly because the restaurant was packed and all were enjoying. Staff is new and still learning, but very friendly. This will definitely become one of our favorites really quickly.

VERY loud place! No soup, no bread, drinks are excessively expensive; plus 2 water bottle s were deposited on the table (one sparkling, one plain) for a charge of $6.00 each.
Service also VERY slow; possibly to serve more drinks,
Basically it is just a pizza place.

The food here is the real deal. Chef/owner Danilo Mongillo is from Benevento, Italy and has brought his food here. Mainly apps and pizza, everything is fresh and authentic. Having been to Positano, I really appreciated everything about this place. You can even sit at the bar and watch Chef Mongillo makes the pies. Highly recommend!!

Strega is new to Milford and still in soft opening... food was delicious... tuna carpaccio and arugula and prosciutto pizza. The pizza dough was super light! Service was excellent and accommodating. More to come: more extensive menu, full bar and outdoor dining!
