We came in on Sunday 6/23 for a 5:00 reservation for a party of 5, we were early which was no problem we were seated immediately. Our server (whose names has escaped me, sorry) was amazing, he was attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and provided exceptional service! We will definitely come back! Thank you for making our dinner unforgettable! Lisa
Great small restaurant with excellent food and atmosphere. All dishes were delicious.
We showed up for an 8pm reservation and were told it would be “a few minutes” from the hostess. Had to ask two more times and always got the same response. Finally seated at 8:40. The waiter gave no empathy about our wait either. Food was very good but not cheap. I would recommend but not on a nice, summer Saturday for sure.
Although we had reservations, we had to wait 40 minutes to be seated. Ppl who came in after us without reservation were seated before us just because of the number in their party.
Waiter was very nice
Restaurant very noisy
It was a really nice dinner with friends, but pricey. If you weigh more than 120 lbs., beware, you cannot fit in-between the rows. I could hear the people conversation beside me, and could also rub elbows too.
I can now say, I went to Strega's in the north end, but know that I will not return.
Food and cocktails were delicious as usual. This is why I chose to return for a special dinner amongst all the 617 choices. Most people would not think about ordering anything but an Italian pasta dish, but the Chilean Sea Bass was outstanding- as I knew it would be. The espresso martini was one of the best I've had.. and I've had a few. Next time, I will try the Waterfront.
We have eaten here several times. Service is always awesome! Food was very good. One dish was not as good as usual. Small North End restaurant - we were seated in the far back corner (someone has to be) and it was very hot. Otherwise a good experience!
It was my daughters 18th birthday. It was a bit pricey but the food was excellent.
Annual stop for a memorable meal with delicious food & wonderful service while in Boston!
Wonderful food, service, everything!
The server was fantastic but overall disappointed in reservation process - was there for 6:15 reservation and would have waited 45 minutes if not lucky to get high top on bar. Do not believe they really care about reservations
Our favorite restaurant. Gianni is the best! He remembers everything and welcomes you like a family member!
There was nothing special. Food was average.
During a recent visit we actually ate at Strega twice in a week it was so good. Great food, authentic and well prepared. And the service... these guys really know how to take care and they provided a special dining experience!
Waiter was awesome. Food was good, not stand out ish but the location, service, and open air feel were awesome.
We both ordered Zappa de pesce. Absolutely fresh and delicious. Very crowded as it was a Saturday evening. Service was impeccable!!
Service is great. Aldo is the best waiter. Food is always fresh. My only complaint is no mixed drinks.
Excellent service, food was outstanding
We travelled from NY to meet family for dinner, we had a 5:45 reservation, stuck in traffic, I phoned Strega to let them know we would be about 15 minutes late. I was made to feel like this was going to be a problem, but continued thinking we would plan B it if so . Upon arrival and alot of stress about losing our reservation, we found the restaurant to be empty,
With the exception of 4 other diners and it remained that way until we finished our dinner ! The hostess was rude, unwelcoming and ambivalent to our presence When we walked in. With dozens of other choices in the North end, having dined at half a dozen of them I cannot recommend Strega for a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Besides the wonderful food, half the dining experience on the north end of Boston is the fun and friendly staff of the restaurant!
Excellent meal. Everything that was brought to the table was excellent except the burrata tomatoes. They weren’t great. The gravy was excellent and the meatball is a must.
Didn’t have dessert. Wines were reasonably priced too. Will be back.
Great meal as always. Service was steady and GIANNI was the perfect “host.” Always a fantastic experience. Highly recommend.
By far the best dining experience of my life. The owner and staff took care of us like we were family.
This is the best restaurant in the North End! Meatballs and homemade fettuccini are as good as anything I have eaten in Italy!
Great restaurant and great service! Meatballs were delicious. Pasta was cooked perfectly. Everything was just delicious. Wish they had a full liquor license, but they were creative in offering cocktails with what they had. Will definitely be back when we are in Boston.
Our waiter was phenomenal. At time I couldn’t understand his ascent but it made the dinner like an evening in Italy. The service was honestly fantastic and we all love our meals.
Must have been a totally off night for the staff or something because no one seemed to know what the heck they were doing. what I assume was the host spent most of the evening outside, on her phone, and smoking.
While who I believe was supposed to be the bartender was doing the hosts job. We had no idea who our actual server was the only person who came to the table more than once was the bartender(greeted us and gave us the check) and the busser who refilled our waters.
Previously we have had phenomenal service but today was sub-par at best. Hopefully in the future it will not be like this as the food is amazing and was introduced to me by the owner himself at a house party he was personally catering/attending for a friend. Looking forward to coming back hopefully with better service.
Overall, very good food and amazing service.
The meatball was to die for.
I wonder about the televisions playing mob movies?
A little off colour from my perspective
This restaurant was average. They do not honor reservations. We waited over 45 minutes.
The waiter was pleasant but serving several tables that were also seated at same time as we were, so never came back to check on us.
The food was good, but nothing special.
One of the top restaurants in the north end
I was excited to finally go, but was disappointed in the meal. The staff was nice and attentive. The food..... left a lot to be desired.
Food was amazing! I would go back again- we had lobster Ravioli and cheese Ravioli. We also had the Meatball app- probably the best meatball I have ever had.
Overall good food
Order the caprese and some drinks and head somewhere else. Hostess beyond subpar.
Had to wait 20 minutes despite having reservations. Very noisy and thus hard to carry on conversation at dinner. Waiter and food were excellent
Very disappointing. Food lacked flavor. Pasta “sauce” was all watered down. It was very overpriced for the quality of food ($45 for seafood pasta). Your paying for the possible celebrity sighting maybe
This place is consistently good. Never disappoints.
Good is incredible and worth every penny.
So fun how they have several different Italian maffie movies on loop. (The Godfather, Bronx Tale, Goodfellas, etc.)
Also, valet is super helpful. We left the car with them and walked around after dinner.
(Pretty loud in her, so not sure I would go on a first day. Also, a great time though!)
We took our family for my daughters graduation dinner. Staff was warm , inviting and attentive . I’m a Sicilian American and I so appreciated the authentic Italian cuisine at Strega North. Thanks for helping us make a great family memory!
Our meal was outstanding, as was our waiter, who was quick to recommend some great apps that he got on the table quickly. Only complaint I have is that our reservation was for 6pm and we weren't seated until after 6:30pm. It is very loud here - not the place to go if you're looking for a quiet family dinner. But the food was amazing.
Love Strega! Amazing, Amazing!! Everything from staff, food, location❤️❤️❤️❤️
This place sucked. They don’t consider your reservation...we waited over 45 minutes after our reservation to sit down. They were rude and did nothing when we complained. Overall horrible experience.
