Place is completely Crowded, at one point I taught I was having a date with the table next to me. The tables are to close to each other and noise level is loud. The food was good!

My food came out cold My wife ordered a $70 cut of steak and it was 75% fat. We returned it. We both ate separately as a result. Other patrons that night also had the same experience. I definitely would not recommend. Especially at the overly expensive price!!

Service was excellent from the host to all of our servers. Everyone was really accommodating and professional. We were also a large group of 8 and they took care of everyone perfectly.

The space of the restaurant is smaller than it looks on the outside so I can be a little crowded in there but aside from that great food, great staff, beautiful place, and surprisingly although the room was full of diners you could still hear your conversation at your table and do not have to yell over everyone.

I highly recommend this place for date nights, birthdays, casual get togethers. For corporate dining it would need to be just casual do not recommend discussing deals or company issues in the space since everyone is close by.

Food is overpriced for the quality. The tables that seated 2 are so small you can literally only fit one dish each and one drink each. The staff was pleasant. The manager came over to make sure everything was ok for us. The food came out so quick - I wanna say about 10 min after ordering! However, overall, the food is very mediocre and drinks were okay too.

Simply put, there are a lot of better Italian restaurants out there that offer better menu and price point.
They don't even offer salads.

Started out with a Caesar and The Fettuccine Strega As An App, Their Signature Pasta Dish was Amazing, Sauce was so good had to ask for extra bread just to finish off every last drop. Our Server Dan was knowledgeable on the menu, professional, and there for our every need. We were there for my brothers 50th birthday so he went big with the Surf&Turf Filet Mignon and Baked Stuffed Lobster Tail, loves every bite, My mom went with the Stuffed Veal Chop with Prosciutto Di Parma, Fontina, Sauteed Spinach, Rosemary-Roasted Potatoes and she said it was the most tender Veal Chop she had ever had, I had the Strega 10oz Filet 10oz, Maine Crab Meat, Portobello Mushroom, Creamy Peppercorn Sauce and it was cooked to MR perfection and melted in your mouth till the last bite. Finished off with a Canoli that Dan had put a candle in for us and he and his excellent back waiter took some pictures for us to remember the event. Great night all around, can’t wait to come back!!!! Great job from the hostess as well finding us the perfect table.

It was perfect. Had a 6:00 reservation called and tried to change it and couldn’t, we were running late at the Boston boat show. Bianca called me back 10-15 minutes later and someone called and canceled there reservation at 7 and we got in with no issue. I was completely impressed that a hostess went out of there way and did this. The service and food was amazing from there. We ordered the chanti and that was a perfect compliment to the meal as well and probably one of the best chanti’s I have had in a long time.

Thank you!

Nice ambiance however it is very tight space. Feels crowded. Very disappointed in the amount of time it took to get our food. We waited nearly an hour before our meals were served and this was only after the waitress asked the manager to check the order. The manager came to the table and agreed that this was a long wait and offered a free dessert. It was even more disappointing that we were there to celebrate a birthday. Not sure how soon I’ll return.

I would recommend it with the proviso that the tables are too close and too many of them. This makes it harder to hear.

Love Strega, both locations. Only issue on this visit was DJ dancing and blaring hip hop club music. People sitting down for dinner at 9 pm on a Friday don't want to listen to this! The bar area was pretty thin, so no justification there. After sharing thoughts with waiter it seemed music volume diminished. Need to check out customer demographics as the night goes on and adjust accordingly.

Such a delicious meal (i had the sea bass) , great service-our waiter had great advice and hot my custom drink order made perfectly. We had a leisurely dinner and were seated immediately despite friday night Boston crowds. Loved it!!noise level was as expected for peak friday night dinner but reduced quickly as the evening progressed.

I had heard great things from this restaurant and had never been. Never ate my meal. First dish that was brought out the fussili was like mush. Sent it back only to receive veal Marsala instead of the lemon cello sauce I ordered. Needless to say my husband was just about finished with his meal so waiting a 2nd time for another dish was not something I cared to do. Would not return. All the restaurant did was remove the dish from the bill.
A restaurant like this should have offered to remove the appetizer or wine. Terrible!!!

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.

Overall, I really love Strega. The waterfront location is a little more fancy than the others and as a young couple, we definitely didn’t get the same treatment as when I went with my family. Definitely a little disappointing, but the food and wine did not disappoint.

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.
