We went there for our anniversary dinner. The service and food was exceptional as on my first impression I was alittle overwhelmed with the large crowd it made it alittle difficult to have a conversation but after the dinner rush it was nice.
The staff was very professional and I would recommend this restaurant . Our anniversary was very nice.. We plan to go back again.

Be prepared to wait even with a reservation. Food was very good. Fresh pasta and great appetizers.

The food was very good, but we had to rush through dinner because they seated us 25 minutes after our reservation and we needed to get to the Bruins game. We booked 6:00 and the game was st 8:00, we should have had plenty of time. For dinner at 6:00 PM they should have a better handle on the turnover. If you have time to wait around to be seated then go here, if you’re on a schedule I would dine elsewhere as it seemed everyone was waiting to be seated.

It was our first visit to Strega and we were very pleased with the food, thought the ambience was just right for a traditional Italian restaurant and the service was outstanding. We had a great time.

Had an 8pm reservation and didn’t get seated until almost 9. Many other angry guests waiting too. Thankfully great food and waitstaff made up for the long wait. We left happy. Management should reconsider the number of reservations they take over Marathon weekend though.

Tables are pushed together too close, making the ability to have a personal, romantic experience at a zero. The noise level as terrible due to the amount of people they squeeze in at once. Very disappointing since it was my first but last experience there.

This is a very small establishment, however, the staff is nothing short of exceptional to make sure your visit is amazing. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and pricing was reasonable. I would absolutely go back!

Food was good, although the waitstaff was not conducive to allowing us to relax a little . This was a business meeting at 4:30 pm Friday night and the cadence and comfort of the meal was rushed by over-attentive service, check-ins and frequent lurking. It was obvious that they wanted to turn our table and the restaurant was quite empty. Hate to say it but over-attentive.

They were extremely accommodating even though we had some issues changing the numbers of our reservation. A man who I assume to be the owner came by and we had a wonderful conversation with him! The food was absolutely excellent from the chicken to the pasta to even the bread and olive oil they brought to the table before our meals were ready. Everything was splendid and we will be sure to return!!

Reservation was made for 9pm. Our group of 9 individuals was not seated until just after 10pm. The restaurant manager gave us some free appetizers but unfortunately that does not address the problem of taking a reservation weeks in advance and not honoring it because tables were overbooked.

Dining room is loud with tight seating. We enjoyed the energy. Large TVs built into wall all playing godfather/ mob movies. The Service was great! Our Food came out quickly but we didn’t feel rushed. The Food was very good and presentation was very nice. We all enjoyed our choices very much. The Menu had a great variety of Italian specialties. We skipped dessert and walked down the street to Mikes Pastry for cannolis. Valet was available and prompt. We will definitely be returning to Strega north End!!

We had a group of 8 here for my wife's birthday and we all were thoroughly impressed by the food and our service was super attentive. Only downsides were that it is very small (as is everything in the North End) and we thought the TVs in the dining area were a little out of place. We had a great time though.

We sat at the bar and it was great. Personal service from the bartender and noting we had a game to attend, she was considerate of our time. Food was excellent, wine superb and exceptional service. We would definitely recommend and are planning our next visit.

We went to Strega North End before a concert at the Garden. Bruno was our server and he directed us to the correct wine based on our preferences. In addition, the staff was attentive and thoughtful. The starter of Burrata, tomatoes and prosciutto was amazing and the Strega salad was regfreshing. We were only at a two person table and ordered so much food that it would not fit on the table, so they moved us to a larger table nearby. For dinner, I had the Bucatini and my husband had the Bolognese- all pasta is made locally. The highlight of the dinner, was the Nutella chocolate mousse, we split. It was the perfect end to a delicious meal. Thank you Strega!

The appetizers, meals, and service were wonderful. The meatball app is a must! The only thing to critique would be the short rib with risotto which was dry. Irregardless we will be back. Great experience.

Fantastic authentic Italian food. Super fresh ingredients, homemade mozzarella and pasta. Cooked perfectly, presented very nicely, and great service. Not a cheap place - but worth every cent we paid. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Our family gathered for Easter Sunday dinner. The meal was wonderful and our waiter and wait staff were top notch. The only short fall I found was the TV's playing the God Father and Good Fella's. I love both of those movies but did not find them appropriate for the 4 children we had with us. Our compliments to the chef... Our meals were outstanding!
Thank you.

We were rushed the whole time we were there. The wait staff was very nice and respectful but it felt as though they were rushing us out of the table even though we were not yet done with our wine and throughout the meal. The food courses were not spaced out in between, as soon as we were done with the app they brought out the main course, etc. They also sat us very closely together with other tables in one section of the restaurant when the opposite side was completely empty.

On vacation in Boston, friend recommended Strega. We had a great evening, food was incredible, big portions (almost too big), service was attentive, friendly and fun, only downside to ambiance were the multiple television screens on one wall all rotating scenes from various movies (Godfather, Rocky, Good Fella's)...though a fun concept, it was distracting to our conversation for those of us facing the screens. Would definitely dine here again, but not face screens.
