Luciano was excellent throughout our visit . The 28oz Delmonico was to die for.

This is an excellent, high-end steak house. One of my fellow diners had a pasta dish and raved about it as well.

We came here on our anniversary for the first time in a couple of years and the quality has gone down a lot. It took 20 minutes to get wine. I had the bolognese and the sauce was average. The wife had the shrimp scampi and the cream sauce was more of a soup.

For the prices they charge, we were expecting a lot more. They charge high prices likely to cater to local businesses who write off the meal. For regular people, it’s way too expensive for not great quality.

Overall a disappointing experience

Our waitress was great; she brought a picture of a meal we had last year to the chef as we couldn't recall what it was, the chef recognized it and made it for my husband even though it was no longer on the menu.

Very pricey but very good.

Very nicely done: I had the 16oz ribeye and she enjoyed her order of Gnocchi. She even commented that it was the lightest gnocchi she could remember. We had a few extra requests and they were all handled very professionally and without question. A memorable evening!

Food was great but reservation was booked as a 23rd wedding anniversary and Strega Prime did not even mention it at all from hostess to server...a little disappointed in their lack of attention to that detail. Food was great, but we were not a heavy drinking table...so there was a rush in service to turn the table (do not pull my plate and drop the bill as i am still dining)... presumably to get more bar friendly clients.

We were celebrating our 33rd Anniversary. As always the food was excellent as well as the service. I love the petit fillet Mignon. It is the perfect size & very tender. Husband always gets the long bone in delmonico. Both were excellent.

fFOR A HIGH END STEAKHOUSE I THOUGHT THE SERVICE WOULD BE BETTER. OUR RESERVATION WAS AT 7:30 AN THE SERVER DID'T KNOW IF THERE WAS ANY SPECIALS, CERTAINLY NOT THE CALIBER OF THE THE BANCROFT IN BURLINGTON FOOD WAS VERY GOOD BUT MY OYSTERS WERE SANDY. MY STEAK WAS COOKED PERFECT AND WAS VERY GOOD. IT WAS MY ANNIVERSAY AND NOTHING WAS DONE SO WHY ASK? NO REASON TO RUSH BACK THERE AND PROBABLY WILL NOT.

We were seated at a table for two in between two other tables of two. There was just bairly enough room to get into the seats. There was no reason the tables could not have been further apart. Service was good but not exceptional. I got the Ribeye, which I didn't think was anything great. It was good but at at $55 plus dollars it should be great. My wife had the Filet which she said was great. There was a great crust on both steaks. We orderd creamed corn and mushrooms as sides. The corn was very good maybe a hint of nutmeg. The mushrooms were just mushrooms. Again just average. For the price they should be special. We did get a nice dessert on the house as we were celebrating our anniversary. A very nice touch. Would I go back, yes, would I rush back, probably not. If someone asked me where to go for a great steak, I would not think Strega.

Lynn our server provided us with exceptional service ! My husband and I came in to celebrate being a first time home buyer. We ordered the 16 oz prime sirloin steak and it was delicious, to our liking. The sides were Mac and cheese and Brussel sprouts . The sides are good for one person, but if order 2 or more you can share it and still be satisfied. Toasted to wine and had a wonderful evening. We were surprised by the chef with a complimentary chocolate cake In lieu of our celebration! Thank you again!

The wait staff was excellent as usual. My wife and I both had the 14oz NYstrip. Cooked to perfection. With the asparagus. Both were delicious. We started off with the Wagyu Meatballs. Those are one of our favorites. Our waiter brought us a celebratory desert on the house for our 29th wedding anniversary. Always have a great meal and service at Strega.

Excellent!! At the moment you come inside of the restaurant the great service begins. We were at the table having Anthony being our server, knowledgeable and kind. He gave us an amazing service for our especial night, was my husband birthday. Kudos to Ella as well. By the way the food just perfect cooked, thank you.

Although I loved my ribeye, my sister had the steak au poivre and my wife had the wagyu meatball over tagliatelle. They were less impressed.

The service was nothing less than phenomenal. Our waiter was as professional and kind/courteous as they come. He was truly a good part of our pleasant evening.

We also ordered a couple of clams on the half shell, but they shorted us 3 clams - which should not have happened - but easy to detect, as we just needed to count the shells. This was a bit disappointing, as they were not inexpensive (and they were quite small clams).

I would still go back, as overall it was a very pleasant evening, but for this kind of expensive/quality steakhouse, I feel that it wasn't as consistent as it should have been. If you try it, however, hopefully you get our waiter. When I was younger, I too was a waiter, and this guy is the best. I wish I had his name so the restaurant would see this, and customers could ask for him. We do know that he was an Italian man that is from Rome. Hopefully the restaurant knows whom I am speaking of.

While the ambiance was great and the service outstanding, I overall was unimpressed with my experience and doubt I will return.

The food was really the killer. I had heard good things about Strega's menu but found my experience lacking. My mussels were littered with shell pieces. I took two bites - both with shells crunching between my teeth- and could not bring myself to finish the appetizer. The red sauce and charred bread served with it was again- average.

The main course of mushroom bolognese was sad. It certainly was not a ragu or bolognese and would have been better advertised as a mushroom cream sauce. The portion of pasta was minimum compared to the amount of mushrooms. While good, nothing I would order again and by the time I ate half I was already sick of eating it.

Dessert was a small portion of average chocolate ice cream which they carelessly decorated with a small bit of whipped cream and two M&M's. At the bottom sat a meringue cookie which should never have been added, the texture with the ice cream was a rather unpleasant bite.

Overall each dish was small, unimpressive, and by the time you got through half of one you were already over it.

I spent far too much money on what was a sad dinner. The only bright spot was the excellent service I was given by the waiter - Marco- who was sublime.

This was the first time my husband and I had gone to Strega, primarily because it is rather pricey. It was his birthday, so I decided to splurge. It was worth every penny. The food, service, and ambience were excellent. I mentioned my husband's birthday to the waiter, and he brought out a dessert with a candle for him at the end of the meal. It was a lovely ending for an excellent meal.
We won't go back frequently due to the prices, but we will return for special occasions.

Went for lunch on a week day, the Server was very conscious that our time was limited and was extremely attentive making sure we were not rushed but at the same time being sure we did not have to wait during courses. We ordered from the restaurant week menu, every course was delicious and well prepared. I look forward to Strega's restaurant week menu as in my opinion is the best of all I've been to and I've been to many.
