We have been to Strega Prime in Woburn twice (special occasion) and the food was superb, and the service could not be better, always welcoming. Nice touch that the manager greets guests at each table.

We were celebrating 3 birthdays and had asked for a special table and unexpectedly Strega gave us a small private room for the 7 of us !
Service was terrific by George, food excellent, comped us 3 desserts and a manager came to visit us twice during the meal!
All of us were thrilled with everything and would definitely return.

The best part about Strega Prime is the service. Over the past three years, we have been to Stregs only a handful of times, and the service is what keeps us coming back. Our server, Lynn, is fantastic. She remembers the smallest details that make dining at Strega a truly wonderful experience. She remembers what wine we liked, what entree we had the previous visit, and the conversations we shared

Restaurant was very nice, service was great but the food was just fair. Lobster bisque soup was very good, calamari was rubbery, my steak was overcooked & the lobster tail had no taste. Our guests had chicken and salmon and said they were very good. I'm not inclined, however, to go back.

The waiter started off by telling us that they did not have the small filet of beef. Then, when I asked for it specifically, they told me that it came as two pieces (4 ounces each) not one at 8 ounces. So, I made the mistake of ordering it. One piece was medium rare and the other was well done. Another person at the table ordered the 12 ounce sirloin. The waiter came back to the table after going to the kitchen and told us that the 12 ounce sirloin was not available. How could a high end steak house not have a normal size filet and a normal size sirloin at 5:30 PM. This was not a late night dinner. In addition, the clams over squid ink pasta was way too salty..... I do not recommend this restaurant. It is way overpriced along with all the other issues.

I’ve been to the Woburn location many times and the food is superb and keeps me returning. This time, a birthday celebration, was unfortunately disappointing. Probably just an off night, but we were stuck in the middle back room with larger parties and the service was poor, with poor ambience. There wasn’t enough serving staff and we filled our own glasses with water and couldn’t find a pepper mill.
The food was still excellent, probably the best filet that I’ve ever had, but the experience was less than par. A few other parties came in but refused the tables and were placed in different parts of the restaurant. I would definitely return, but I would never sit in that room again. I would recommend others to do the same.
Once again, the food was excellent but the room was under staffed, which made the experience disappointing for such an important occasion and the costs accrued.

Celebrating our anniversary couldn’t have been at a better place. The menu selections were great from appetizers to entrees. Our waitress and servers were friendly and available throughout the meal. Our waitress was accommodating when she saw how much I was enjoying my sautéed muscles by offering additional toasted sliced bread. Oh how wonderful. Our steaks: NY Strip and Delmonico with bone were AWESOME! Wow! We would gladly come here again for a special event. Just the best!

It was very nice and they did everything right. Had a veal chop which is a good change for a regular steak house. Only issue was a $2 up charge on drinks-cheap- especially when it was $2 less on the on line menu

The table was too small to accommodate all of the placed items. The meat was undercooked. I ordered lobster tail with my steak and it arrived 10 minutes after the meal. Finally dessert was delivered without silverware. We have always had a great experience at Strega and it was our go too restaurant for date night. We were very disappointed and will not be returning anytime soon.

When you pay these prices you expect everything to be great. Some of it was great - hats off to the chef for the lamb rack. Best I’ve ever had! - but desserts and appetizers were lacking.

The good: great wine selection, great service, nice ambiance for a special occasion. The rack of lamb was amazing! The ribeye (16 oz) was very good. Most side dishes were good. Spaghetti and meatball - fresh pasta was very good, meatball also very good. The waiter brought out a complimentary chocolate mousse in honor of our 13th wedding anniversary. Very nice touch! And the mousse was fantastic - best dessert available! I don’t understand why it’s not on the menu; way better than any of the desserts we actually ordered!

The bad: Caesar salad was nothing special at all. The veal dumplings were good but way overpriced ($18 for 5 little dumplings??? C’mon.) While the sides were all very tasty, the only side you could get that wasn’t drenched in cream was the asparagus. Would be nice to have a few more veggie options that aren’t cream-based to balance out such a rich dinner. Spaghetti and meatball served to our 5 year old daughter was served piping hot (I will never understand why restaurants insist on serving ridiculously hot dishes to children????) While the ribeye was very good I think it was overpriced (much better ribeye at the Capital Grille for roughly the same price). The signature cake was tasteless and the profiteroles, which the waiter said were amazing, were ok but overdone/almost burnt. Again, they have an amazing chocolate mousse but it’s not in the menu??? Why not? It’s the best dessert they have!!!

I like this place a lot, however, I am not impressed with the person who assigns the table. We made reservation for 4:00 pm and were the first to arrive. There was no one at the restaurant, but she assigned us a table right by the entrance which leads to the bathroom hallway. We can see the coat closet and the kitchen activity. It was my youngest son's celebration to get his first job. He was shy and did not want to say anything. With the amount of money we spent on the food, I think we deserve better seating. In addition, when we told the receptionist we had reservation, she did not know and we had to remind her to check. Other than this, the rest of the experience was very nice except for the busy activity we had to monitor around the kitchen and entrance.
We do not think we will come back again. With the price tag, we feel we can be treated better in other places.
