The food is amazing. If your looking for a Pepe’s or a Sally’s, look elsewhere. It’s Neapolitan style. The wine list had a great selection. The service is very attentive. The live music was perfect!

The food was delicious, however I wouldn't bother making a reservation, 40mins after our scheduled reservation time we still did not have a table. We never got a table and was told to sit at the bar. For a new restaurant and what would be my first impression they need to get a better grasp on reservations and turn times for tables. It was very frustrating experience.

Other than pizza and salad, there were only 4 choices of entrees. For the prices they are charging, I was hoping for more of a selection.
That said, food was good and service was excellent.

We are there about a month ago and really enjoyed the Misto app. This time it was different. There was no prosciutto and a smaller portion of salami. We also preferred the bread that came with it on our last visit. The eggplant stuffed with mozzarella was also not as good; the sauce was not the tasty marinara we had previously enjoyed. Pizza was great as was the Manhattan and house red wine We'll be back.

Gnocchi chiaramente fatto con pasta comprata al supermercato, ho sentito la copia al mio fianco lamentarsi che la pizza era cruda, ho chiesto agnello che è stato servito in una porzione ridicolamente piccola, Però molto saporito, devo dire.

Secondo me un posto per bere, mangiare il formaggio, il prosciutto crudo, e cenare da un’altra parte, ossia un posto per fare aperitivo soltanto.

Amazing menu, well prepared and presented food--although entree items very small, more like "small plates" and no side dishes (?)

LIked the energetic vibe but it was so noisy it was hard to hear my friends at our table!

The food was great as was the service. However, they had a band that while they were good musically, they were too loud for the space and kept a commentary between songs. We were there with friends we had not seen in a while and couldn’t have a conversation. We would have stayed and drank and ate more if we could hear our friends talk.

This is the real deal. If you are looking for chicken parm .... not your place. If you are looking for authentic, fresh and delicious Italian food from the Naples area of Italy this is it. Chef Mongillo uses locally sourced ingredients to create amazing dishes. Great drink/wine list as well, including wines from his family's own vineyard in Italy. Treat yourself.

The cheeses, capicollo, caciocavallo prosciutto, bread, and salami in the Misto were the best we've ever tasted. Equally excellent were the eggplant, and the Prosciutto and Rucola pizza. The house red was a perfect complement. Jenna was the only server and she handled the customers with grace, charm, and a warm smile. Our only disappointment was the tiramisu. We'll definitely be back.

What a gem in Milford! We are so happy to have this restaurant's arrival. The pizzas are amazing - don't expect the gooey cheese and slop. This is truly European pizza (the way pizza is meant to be). Flavorful, just the right texture and crust. The appetizers are actually impressive and modern. Don't expect fried mozarella. Service is great. Everyone is very friendly. We are so happy to finally have a restaurant that's not just burgers, sloppy pizza and wings.

The only thing missing? A few entree's to add t the mix when we don't feel like having pizza. Otherwise, don't change a thing!

This was the best restaurant we’ve been to in a very long time. The food was phenomenal. You can taste the freshness and uniqueness in each dish. I would eat every meal from here for the rest of my life and still love it. The vibes and the staff were next level. 5 stars just isn’t enough for the quality that Strega delivers. Outstanding

The sound was loud- need rugs? The service was slow...but I expect the waiter was new. Food really great. Prices were good but not great. Overall...I would go back. The tuna tartar and pizza were exceptional. As was the olive oil gelato.

First Impressions upon entering- stylish, well-placed and designed decor. Friendly and attentive service throughout meal. Minor hiccup was kitchen was out of an item and we found out after we ordered.

As the sun set, the interior lighting became noticeably bright and not balanced for the warm cozy decor. The white LED lights and fixtures provided a modern twist, but made for an unbalanced ambience, whereas a warmer dimmable lighting would have suited the place better. We had an earlier reservation, and it was not crowded initially, but filled up and the noise level was quite notable and disrupted conversation levels, unfortunately.

Menu- Authentic Italian cuisine as website states, not a pasta dish on the menu, so be forewarned. We had the Misto (meat & cheese platter) and the Carciofi & Finocchio (Arugula, artichoke and fennel salad) and an additional flatbread to savor each decadent bite. Every bite was flavorful and impressive!

Nice selection of New World and Old World wines in both reds & whites, by the glass. Decent by the bottle selection as well, fairly priced.

We will be back to try Strega again! We wish Danilo's Milford venture much success, as we enjoyed his Branford restaurant, and was sad to see it leave our town.

First of all the decor is beautiful. The place looks very upscale and everyone was really nice. Our waitress was very polite and attentive, as well as the manager who came by the table to share a story about the restaurant. If you like seafood I would highly recommend the Salumi Di Mare. It’s basically a charcuterie board of different fish and it was AMAZING! Could not recommend it enough. One of the best things I’ve ever eaten! Following that we had the Mortadella & Pistachio pizza, which was delicious. I never thought I’d love a pizza with nuts on it but this was really unique. Everything on the menu was made with care and presented beautifully. This place was very impressive. I wish I took pictures because words don’t do it justice but please check this place out! Definitely going back!

The food is amazing. The freshest ingredients straight from Italy where the chef/owner is from. If you are looking for the usual Italian menu this is not your place.
