Food was great and the service as well. I would highly recommend this place.
best value restaurant around this area! chicken giambotta was excellent
The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Definitely our favorite restaurant in the area.
Fabulous meals. Duck l’orange and Chilean sea bass. Amazing. Thank you
Excellent food as usual, and the best dessert of all the area restaurants! You have to try the Nutella crepes!
Always good consistent food. Wait staff is attentive and we like that’s it’s a BYOB.
Ordered the pork Milanese special. it was the best tasting piece of port I have ever had. Shared a some with others at my table and all agreed. Everyone’s food was delicious and served hot. Highly recommend this restaurant!!
Food was very good with matched service.
Food and service were great!
We have eaten at Strega for at least 6 years. I will say the quality of the food and service has never changed.
Highly recommend you give it a try you will not be disappointed.
Food was phenomenal
Strega is always a sure win when it comes to dining out. It is one of our favorite places to go.
The place is very intimate and cozy. The service was great and the food was even better! We will definitely be returning.
Another great meal and service. Thank you
Nice ambiance, very attentive service, BYOB, we ordered the specials very good.
Strega never disappoints . The food and service are excellent and the outdoor dining was comfortable.
I love the food at Strega. We were outside and thought the restaurant would follow COVID safety requirements. The tables were well spaced although for a table for 6, we were very close to each other. However, when some of our party went to use the restrooms inside the restaurant, they were shocked to see that the restaurant was well over the 25% limit set by the state. Most tables were filled. This lead us to doubt if COVID health provisions were taken in the kitchen.
The service outside was extremely slow as we waited quite a while for our meals. We now knew why, because of the full dining room.
I love the food at this restaurant but was disappointed in the way they are regarding the safety of their patrons.
Excellent food and service. Our new favorite restaurant.
We shared the pasta purses with pear and gorgonzola sauce for appetizer--they were outstanding--great flavors! And had the homemade pasta with bolognese ragu and ricotta cheese for entre --delicious! Try the nutella crepes for dessert--cannoli is very good, too!
Food, atmosphere, service, safety - PHENOMENAL, as always. Wish I could give more than 5 stars.
good to be back after lockdown...great as always best place in Berkeley Heights. Pete is a great host and aims to please
Great menu for foodies. Specials also have something for everyone. BYO makes the meal even nicer when you can pair your favorite wine with Strega's wonderful entree options. The service is thoughtful and when they serve their olive bread with their savory butter, you will be hooked!
Great food and service always consistent..even if you have not been there in a while
Excellent apps- meatballs and balsamic calamari- salad yummy. Main course pork chop mouth watering- chicken giambota dynamite- Nutella crepe and capachino tremendous
Food was delicious. Very friendly staff. BYOB. Great for a date. Will be returning!
Outdoor tables. Food always excellent with good, friendly service!
service and good were excellent. staff were friendly and accommodating!
Someone was smoking by the kitchen with the back food open for the entire cigarette and the restaurant smelled like smoke for a good 15 minutes. Otherwise food was delicious.
We dined indoors as it was cool outside. Although Veal Picatta was not on the menu, the kitchen accomated my request. Veal is not an easy dish to make however Strega’s always comes out perfect
BYOB and plenty of parking. The appetizer was a buratta
We always get a delicious meal here. They now have both indoor and outdoor dining.
It was good to be back.
While the outdoor dining is not the ambiance we desire, it does not matter because the food and service override this little inconvenience. Always a great meal and friendly staff to help make the evening enjoyable.
Food was excellent. Service was terrific. Will be back!
The outdoor dining in under the covered walkway on the side of the restaurant and was adequate and well spaced. Menu has been slightly abbreviated but the food quality and service is as good as it as always been.
The food was excellent! The pasta was so fresh and so were the herbs and vegetables.
Great food and exceptional service.
Unfortunately we did not have a very good experience. The server seemed to have an attitude with us from the beginning, and it never seemed to recover throughout the whole dinner service. We had several issues including my husband being brought the wrong meal, as was someone else on the table next to us.
I understand that these are difficult times, but one would think that it would make the employees try harder to earn your business. We do not intend to return during the outside dining phase, and are hesitant to return even when inside dining resumes if it will be the same staff.
It's very disappointing because the food at this restaurant is excellent, the owner just needs to hire more personable staff. The young lady who was bringing water, bread clearing the table etc. was so sweet. I can't imagine what it must be like for her working with someone who's giving off such a negative vibe.
Also, the tables were not 6 feet apart, and the server never wiped down the menus after each table used them, and just stacked them together on a 'shelf' on one of the posts. Fortunately we had brought our own hand sanitizer with us.
Everything was fine. Can;t do much about the hot humid weather.
Great food, as always. Nice job setting up outdoor seating. Good to be back.
Strega always serves excellent food with exceptional service. Their outdoor dining tables are safe and quiet and beautifully set.
