Strega Prime's food is very good, and the prix fixe lunch, at $21, is a very good deal indeed. This is an old school, white-tablecloth restaurant, with both price and service to match, so it's great for Occasions -- except, the ambiance is also deeply weird.

From the piebald imitation horsehide seats around the very large bar to the impressionistic steer skulls on the walls to the modern crystal chandeliers to the remarkably bad but clearly expensive art-work, Strega Prime embodies a mid-last-century dream of a certain kind of masculinity, the kind that likes women to be quiet and ornamental while the men talk and drink expansively and expensively. If you can deal with that, it's a fine meal, carefully cooked.

Surprisingly inattentive start to the meal with a largely absent server and too long wait for the appetizers (over 40min past drinks). Once we brought the problem to their attention things picked up and the pacing was good, but it wasn’t the right tone to start with. No acknowledgment of the delays by the staff, just that things started to move. That said, all the food was prepared to perfection. As for value, I always have a hard time justifying $40+ for a simple steak but these were delicious.

Burrata appetizer was made with high quality meats and cheese. Veal osso bucco was cooked to perfect temperature with great flavors. The dolce de leche cake was very decadent. The food was delicious and the service attentive, professional and excellent. We had a lovely evening.

Strega prime is my favorite go to restaurant. I appreciate that they will swap out a vegetable if you don't happen to care for what comes with the dish. the popovers are certainly an added treat. When I get together with my friends they are sure pleased that we will be meeting at Strega prime

I probably would not recommend only because of the service. The filet mignon was fabulous! I just wish service in the dining room was a little better. The dining room was WAY too hot. Because of the heat, we were very thirsty. Trying to get our water glasses filled was a bit of a struggle. If I'm paying $500+ for dinner, I shouldn't have to chase anyone down for a glass of water. Our waiter was also a bit sluggish and not really friendly. We all have bad nights, but I really don't need the bill thrown on the table with a "Have a good night." I just wish the ambiance and service was a little better. I really enjoyed the food and cocktails!

We have been a fan of Strega restaurants for many years. Strega Woburn has been a staple for our various celebration dinners and a spot to bring suppliers and clients. Had Pre-Christmas dinner upon my son's arrival home from college and it was disappointing.

14oz strip was lacking flavor and tenderness. My medium was medium well but I chose not to send back. My son's same steak was cooked medium as ordered. The filets were cooked very well but comments were also lacking flavor. The flavor that was on the steak was the butter and salt, not natural beef flavor from the steak. I'm not sure if any of the steaks were aged.

Sides were also a bit disapoointing. Mash potato was soupy. Creamed spinach was also very loose lacking substance.

Antonio our waiter provided us with a very enjoyable dinning experience. Drinks and food where very good and timing on each course was just right. We had a 5:30 pm reservation last Saturday. We have found early dinning on Saturday there is less chance of issues. We will be back.

We went to Strega for my wife’s birthday. Things got off to a slow start as 2-3 staff members came to table to adjust the settings, bring water, etc. but then 5-10 min. passed before our primary waiter showed up and asked for our drink order. However, from then on, everything was excellent...especially the food. My son and I had the 12oz. fillets which were excellent...I was still thinking I would love another one the next day. My wife had the shrimp scampi, daughter had mac and cheese and son’s girlfriend ordered chicken piccata. As expected, sides were separate. Everybody loved their food. Our waiter asked if we were there for a special occasion and we told him it was for a birthday (conveniently while my wife was in the rest room)...he brought a tiramisu for everyone to enjoy (without fanfare as requested).

Aside from the minor delay at the start of the meal, it was a great meal and we look forward to our next visit.

My experience at Strega Prime was beyond disappointing. I’m a regular there but I cant Say I’ll be going back anytime soon. From the valet attendant who was beyond flustered when we arrived (taking deep breaths in a squat position and not even opening my door (a women)) to the waitress who told us that she just finished training and Saturday night was her first night- well it showed. Our water was never filled until after our meal when we asked the attendant for some. When we asked for crushed pepper we had been given a pepper shaker. We no, cracked pepper. The waitress brought over the pepper mill and left it on the table for us to do. Two out of three steaks cooked incorrectly. Our salads came out wrong. Drinks took a min of 15-30 min to get- and that’s if she didn’t forget one (which happened). Our menus stayed with us the entire night. Now if a normal size it would be note worthy however these menus are BIG, wide, long and not flexible. Now if this was a regular the mill type restaurant I wouldn’t mind and it complain however our bill was over $500 and we could have gotten better service a number of low chain restaurants that I wouldn't even mention. I have never in all my years have had such a horrible (yes very strong word) experience.

When leaving the same valet attendant was outside - taking forever to find keys (fine) clicking the button to hear where the car was (about 3x) standing in the cold for 10min i realized that my car was parked i from t of the restaurant to the left of the door. Now wouldn’t there either be a note on the attendants side or better yet shouldn’t he have know?

Went tonight there were no specials. Bar had no bud light in stock.....sat next to a group that was loud and using profanities. I thought the experience for my fiance' birthday would've been a lot nicer choosing straga prime. Guess I was wrong. By the way I requested that it being her birthday it would be a surprise. The hostess seating us, after I told them not to say anything, asked my fiance' whose birthday it was. Also when I make a reservation I shouldn't have to wait 35 minutes to be seated.

This is our 3rd trip to Strega Prime. The food is of the highest quality. Perhaps the best Chicken Parm I have ever had. The Strega Signature is a must have for desert. Definitely a shareable item.

Our waiter was amazing! He was fantastic to our children- allowing my daughter( 6th grade) to speak Italian to him. He helped us construct a huge-kid friendly meal for our son ( hold the cheese on the Cesar Salad- no garnish on the Mac & Cheese- extra pop-over& keep the Shirley Temples Coming!!!) allowing my husband myself & not at all picky daughter ( rack of lamb) to enjoy ourselves!! Thank you for an amazing 45th birthday dinner. We’ll be back!!
