My boyfriend and I came to celebrate his 23rd birthday. I mentioned this in making my reservation as well as to the waiter who never acknowledged this and never said happy birthday or added a candle to the cake we paid for. It is completely unacceptable to pay $300 for a dinner for 2 for a special occasion and not receive any acknowledgement. I am very disappointed in the service. Our first big celebration together was a huge disappointment and I expected better from a place as renowned as Strega.
Great night out with the girls
Great dinner. Slow service.
Very authentic Italian fare. We started with the Beet and Ricotta plate. It was really fresh and delicious. I had linguine with white clam sauce and my husband had the Bronzino. Both were very good.
A little over rated for what it is. The food is good, nothing super special. A little over priced and over dressed in my opinion
I was so excited to visit the restaurant and was sadly disappointed with the food. My salad was terrible. The enter was good but insanely expensive. I don’t think I would go back for dinner. Maybe drinks...
Delicious from start to finish with an attentive wait staff that take cues from your pacing to put in orders. Would absolutely recommend!
Service was much to slow, we were there for 1.5h for a power lunch
Business meeting. Good food. Quiet enough. Service was good too
We may have been too loud but food was excellent!
It was amazing, but the booths were very crowded.
Had a 40 minute delay, despite of the reservation made. However, the kindness of the service and the environment compensated the issue. Very expensive menu.
Good vibe for bringing in the new year
Good over all it was New Year’s Eve so cant TrueBlue judge the food or service. Bit crowed but otherwise hats of to the crew !
Dined here during New Year's Eve and we were very pleased with the food. However, the service was quite slow - maybe because it was a packed house for the NYE festivities.
Great New Year's Eve dinner! We ordered from the Prix-Fixe menu. Portions were generous! Calamari was great as well as the Sea bass. Will return!
Nice room and good service. Appetizers were excellent (eggplant roll and buffalo mozzarella and calamari). Ribeye was the worst steak I’ve ever had at a “premium “ steak house. At $69, these were easily the biggest rip-offs ever. Thin and horribly fatty. Two of us suffered through those. Filets were bland and fish was overcooked. Desserts were mediocre. Excellent selection of wines by the glass. Always wanted to try Strega but won’t be going back.
New Years Eve
Little crowded my chair was right up against people at table behind me. Expected for NYE but not ideal.
Place was amazing. Food was great. Server was a little slow and the place was not busy. Could of been a little more on top of that. The prices are high as well not sure why. Overall the place was what I expected.
We arrived for our reservation and were seated quickly. The food was delicious and the drinks were very good too. The waiter was friendly and helpful.
Mike did a great job taking care of our party of 8.
Great staff great food great fun!
The food was god, not special and very expensive for what we ate. They sat us in a corner which was quiet like I asked for but air conditioning was blowing down on us. Needless to say, this was very uncomfortable on a cold night! They turned it down once but it came back on and I was told they couldn’t change it. It’s a good place for a noisy bar scene, football game on etc. But for fine dining and the price go somewhere else!
Took a little while to be seated because our table wasn’t quite ready but restaurant was slammed. The food was incredible! Great service, nice staff. Was perfect for our Christmas Eve special dinner. Very few places even open that night.
Lively Christmas Eve...food and and service were very good.
Had reservations for 7:45 arrived at 7 pm didn’t get seated until 8:30 they made up a table near check in because we were going to leave ...will not go back as they overbooked which was not fair to our group
This is my second time dining at Strega and my experiences both times were the same--excellent food and truly terrible service —uniformly poor from host desk to picking up the check. I wanted to give them a second chance before writing a review but both times were equally bad.
Waited 20 minutes past our reservation after arriving 10 minutes early. Same excuse each time. Asking my name and reservation each of the three times although we were standing in full view the whole time. This was not just us, other patrons actually joked with us about Seinfield Chinese restaurant episode and placing bets on how much longer we’d be kept waiting.
The server however was the worst. I am sorry I did not catch his name so I could warn you to avoid any table he serves. Regularly disappeared throughout the evening and at one point dropped off a coffee—with no mention of the desserts we’d ordered and went to chat and laugh with two other staff for 10-15 minutes in our view. Finally had to go up and get him to ask about dessert. No apology and still waited another 10 minutes or so for afogato which obviously requires just about zero prep time. And this was just one example of numerous ignoring, not delivering and not apologizing.
The food is very good, but given the high prices and abysmal service we will never be back.
Came on a busy Christmas Eve. Had only been to the straga in the north end. Was very disappointed when I saw a bank of 6 televisions in the dinning room. I was anticipating a romantic dinner. That said, the food was fine. Just know what you are in for
Never a disappointment. This year we were there for Christmas Eve dinner with the family. Dood, service and timing on the dinner was amazing!
B team service staff on Monday night. Awkward, abrupt service. Have eaten here multiple times in the last few years while working locally. Won’t be back. Much more competition with more professional service in the area now.
Had an amazing meal and amazing service! Went above and beyond!
Had a great time service was excellent, food was superb....
We absolutely loved this restaurant. What delicious food, excellent service, and such a nice location. Before dinner we took a stroll around the waterfront boardwalk with nice views of Boston and perfect sunset lighting. We were seated immediately and the restaurant had a cool ambiance with the Godfather, Godfather 2, Goodfellas, and Casino playing non-stop on the large screens. The three of us shared one of the delicious nightly special appetizers which had calamari, scallops and shrimp. We also got Mamma Rosetta's Famous Meatball which was huge and tasty. Already full from the appetizers, we were served our piatto principale. As for the Fettucini Strega my husband's quote best describes it "This is the best meal I ever had!" Our daughter had the Lobster Mac and Cheese which had large and many chunks of lobster and made for a second meal the next day. I had several bites of this and it was the best LM&C I have ever had. For my main dish I had the Strega Filet which was excellent. It had crab meat, portobello mushroom and peppercorn sauce. Overall it was an excellent dining experience. We were very happy with the service and highly recommend this restaurant. We will definitely return.
Food and service was great, only problem I had was that the Patriot game was on in the bar area. Very loud crowd there and it became very difficult for my wife and I to have a romantic quiet dinner. Considering what you pay for a meal, I was not expecting that atmosphere, it felt like a sports bar.
The food was absolutely delicious. This lunch was to celebrate a birthday, the service and special attention for the person having her birthday were memorable. All the party members wants to come back.
The staff is so nice, hostess and waitress. We had the “Power “Lunch” which is 3 courses for $20. Fantastic deal and delicious!
Great location. Excellent food and service.
My friend and I were celebrating his birthday and it was the perfect place. The food, the lobster Mac and cheese to be specific was AMAZING! We were too full to have any room for dessert but they gave him a cannoli as a treat. Rocco and Theresa are great! Thank you for such a memorable night. The noise level was a bit high because it was late and the bar was open but none the less it didn’t hinder us from having a great time.
I just can’t say enough good things. We love Johnny and Polina, so they bring us back week after week. The food is exceptional, service makes us feel like we’re at our second home on Sundays. Truly exceptional because they are so consistently awesome every time we visit.
