I was server was fantastic and very pleasant . It was our 20th anniversary . The only thing we didn’t comment on it because it wasn’t his fault was that a work party came to sit next to us and they were loud . We’re going to asked to move our seat but we didn’t want to be inconvenient. Our appetizer, salad, soup, popover, meal and dessert were delicious

We enjoyed everything. Our waitress, Angela, was delightful. The staff was very attentive. The main entree(s) were expertly prepared--not a thing left on our the plates. We will be back and the round
table provided us with privacy.

our family of four sat in the bar at a hi-top. The waitress had to be serving 40-50 people, but never missed a beat, never rushed us, got everything right, and checked back frequently. We ordered 4 apps and 4 meals - everything was perfect. It was mother's day and they gave us a big slice of chocolate mousse cake - enough for all of us to share. The quality of food, service, and atmosphere make it worth the premium. We could not be more satisfied.

I have visited all the Strega locations. I know Nick Verano. This Woburn location is near my home. I had a nice Mother's day dinner here with my son. We had made a reservation and were seated right away. Drinks we ordered were delivered, apps were delicious as usual, and dinner was delicious. I have to say, I felt rushed. After about 10 minutes the waiter came over and we ordered our drinks, then 10 minutes later he came and we ordered apps and were still deciding on a meal, he said we had to order right then with apps because that is what the restaurant wants them them to do. We were not ready but ordered anyway. I felt that the whole time of being rushed and sorry to say I don't think the waiter was great...no personality, smile, or making us feel appreciated. For those prices, I should have not felt that way. The Mother's day excuse is not valid as we were there at 4 and it was not crazy busy. I had read the Mother's day special on my phone and the waiter never told me about it until I asked..he told me and never quoted a price. I will come back, but that experience with him was not great! I hope not to get him again..
Thanks

The Varano family does it right. Period. I've been to all the Strega restaurants and there isn't a loose end in the bunch. Top notch service, food is off-the-hook good, and whatever the occassion (business or pleasure) you'll come off with a dining victory. 5 Stars!

Staff was very friendly, food was awesome And fresh we were sat early.whixh was nice. Not rushed at all. Only minor blip is we ordered one item as an app but given another item.that looked similar. We ate it and enjoyed but made sure to let them know in the event we were not charged properly. We didn't want to not pay the proper price if it was more than what we ordered

Strega is quite possibly the best restaurant in the Boston area. The prime location is five star for consistency quality and taste every single visit. From the check-in to the checkout it is designed with the customer in mind. But the most important element of Strega prime is the quality of their steaks. It is the best piece of beef that I have had anywhere in this country. Their sides are each remarkable. I can make one statement that I’m sure of, try Strega once and you’ll become a regular

Strega Prime competes with Davios and (consider a stretch) with Capital Grille and Ruths Chris to name a few. We celebrated Mothers Day on Saturday night. We had a reservation for 5.
They seated us in a booth for four...it was cramped at best, we mentioned it to a waitress...she totally agreed and moved us to a better spot. Staff seemed to care that we were seated in the wrong table to begin with. Nice. Our waiter was nice but covering a bunch of tables. He accidentally spilled a drink on the table. Accidents happen. Food came out on time at a nice pace. Calamari was excellent. Main courses were very good. Bone in filet was real good, as was bolognese was also very good. Sides were skimpy. Each was enough for only one person...maybe 1 1/2. Certainly not more. Overall it was a meh experience. For the same $, Ruths Chris and Capital Grille are far better values. Davios has same menu but is afflicted with same challenges...the expansions are never as good as the originals.

Had issues with steak being cooked incorrectly as well as a couple of other issues. For the money the group was very disappointed. The manager was very very nice and apologetic, but again the cost for what was given was off the charts.

The beginning was a little rocky. We were seated with menus but no wine menu. We received water and then sat for a while. In the meantime lots of staff were standing around. After some staring on my part someone decided to wait on us. After that things were fine.

We went there for my wife’s birthday. Seven in the party. I wanted a round table but was told initially there were none available. When we got there however they had a nice round table set up for us in a corner. Very nice. They obviously went out of their way for us. Service was great; attentive, prompt. Food was very good and hot! A great time was had by all!

It was the first time we went to Strega in Woburn and we loved it all. From the food to the atmosphere and our waitress. Angela was excellent! She was attentive enough to meet and exceed our expectations but at the same time allowed us time to enjoy our meals and mingle with friends. We will definitely be back soon!

When our waitperson introduced herself, we were asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and said yes, as it was our daughter's college graduation. At the end of the meal, our daughter was presented with a complimentary dessert and 'congratulations' written in chocolate on the plate. She was so touched! It was a lovely surprise. The meal was outstanding and service was excellent.

As a long time fan of Strega Prime, I don't hesitate to chose this restaurant for a special occasion. We were there Saturday night the 5th for my husbands birthday. Typically, the service and food is excellent, unfortunately this time it was not. It started out fine, we had a couple of appetizers and all was good. When our main courses were served, our waitress did not ever come back to the table to ask us how everything was. If she had, I would have told her that my steak was overcooked. It was not good. I picked at it and maybe ate about 1/2 of it, and it wasn't until the runner came to take our plates away that I mentioned to him that my steak was overcooked. He said he would tell the server and she came over to ask me about it. I told her I wasn't really happy with my steak and I would have fully expected that to be taken off the bill. It was not. I am not one to complain to get something for free, but when you are paying upwards of $60 for a piece of meat, it should be perfect. This is poor customer service in my opinion, and they just lost my business.

Ridiculously expensive. A steak for $45 -55 range and extra $2 for peppercorn sauce? Plan to pay $100 per person. Steak was excellent as it should be. I'd only go back if someone else was treating.

The service was outstanding and the food was very good. For the price of the steaks, my Ribeye could have been a bit more melt in your mouth tender. However, my husbands Bone in Sirloin was perfect. The asparagus was perfectly cooked as were the mashed potatoes. Great wine selection.

Had a great experience! I have a Gluten and Dairy Allergy and I was easily able to order and enjoy the menu, plus our server Angela was very knowledgeable of both of my allergies, which put me at ease. She also asked if we were celebrating anything at the beginning which was a very nice touch at the end of the meal when she surprised my friend with a congratulatory tiramisu for her new job! Would highly recommend!

We had a wonderful dining experience. The ambience, food and our server Antonio were exceptional. I have a dairy allergy and the chef prepared a dairy free Chicken Picatta for me which was more delicious than restaurants we have dined at in the North End! Our server Antonio was very professional, knowledgeable and attentive. We highly recommend Strega Prime in Woburn.

The steak and mussels were good but not much excitement about any other dishes. So, the whole experience was based on the following 4 items/distractions:
We sat beside a filthy window looking into the kitchen..
We had to swat away a flying something a couple of times..
There is a light fixture hanging from the ceiling ready to fall down...
The waiter never introduced himself...

Overall was good. Steaks were cooked perfectly - nice medium rare on the inside with a good char and seasoning on the outside.

Sides were good but nothing extraordinary. Small portions too, unlike at other steakhouses where we always leave with leftovers, we finished everything.

The beef tartare appetizer was a joke. It's basically a spoonfull, so do not split it with anyone and do your wallet a favor and don't order it at all.

Ambiance was just okay. We were seated in a back room with a bunch of families with small children who were running around screaming. I felt like I was at Chuck E Cheese, not a $600 dinner.

Service was really good though, and they didn't rush us out the door when we finished, either.

Strega was exceptional for the food, drinks and service. My wife loved it as her birthday present. I have never had a better steak.
This was a once in a very rare while venture for us considering the price, so we dressed for upscale dining. I was a surprised to see that we could have arrived in shorts and a golf shirt or ripped jeans.
It wasn't exactly off-putting and I am just probably being an old curmudgeon. I would just think people would choose different attire for such a nice restaurant instead of what to they wear to Applebees.
I'm sure it's just a me thing.
