The sauce over homemade lasagna is one of the best on Hanover Street. The confit chicken was crispy and not dry. Indulge yourself with the meatball appetizer, you won't regret it.
Less than 3 feet away from next table. Table dividers only separated tables. My husband and I could have reached the people next to us. Less than an arms length away.
Strega has awesome food and drinks, great service, and a cool setting. Overall 5 star experience, great for a double date.
“Very cute inside” - my girlfriend
I had a 7:15 reservation for indoor dining. My party arrived at 7:10. We waited for approximately a half an hour before being seated, and that was after I inquired twice about our table's status. We were finally seated just prior to 7:45 and were seated outside because I mentioned to the hostess that we'd be willing to do so. We ended up being seated outside, right next to a sidewalk where a homeless man was sitting (and stayed for the duration of our meal). I understand that the restaurant cannot control this but, unfortunately, it did affect our overall experience. Our meal was okay, and service good, but given the overall experience, especially not honoring our reservation at the designated time, I will not be returning.
Great food and service
The food is phenomenal. The service is even better. This is by far my favorite restaurant in the North End.
Love this place. Godfather playing on the big screen, attractive staff with great hair (Carlo) and food is to die for!!!!
Amazing food. As always.
Food was great and service was great! Best scallops I've ever had!
The food is really amazing here but our server didn't really understand how to wear a mask. She was nice but a mask is supposed to be worn over your nose and mouth. I would recommend but be wary of your server.
Had a reservation at 8 - we were seated at 9:00 that was a bit disappointing...
Great food but felt very rushed
Incredible food, great service, and everything was super quick! Easily my favorite place in the North End!
Delicious! Always on our agenda when we are in Boston.
Got rushed out the door and the food was not worth the price.
Amazing service great food.. would recommend if looking for a relaxed meal with authentic Italian food!!
Beautiful wine selection as well.
The food was excellent. The bartender was very nice and the service overall was great. Definitely will be coming back again. Drinks were amazing !
Amazing experience, waitress was extremely nice and overall had a great experience
Amazing service and great brunch!
A nice date night, but as we say in portuguese "deixou a desejar", especially since this was such a popular location.
showed up on time for our reservation but wasnt seated for an hour after, food was good, but they stuck us in the corner with very little lighting and no heater...
Great food and great service!
Always amazing. Great food and people. Love our visits to Strega!
definitely do not let your customers bring their dogs. a table behind us at dinner had their yappy very annoying dog with them.
thankfully they were nearly done as we got our entrees.
our waiter was an incredibly nice older gentleman xox
We waited for almost 45 minutes to be seated. A table sat open in front of us the entire time we waited. It appeared that the hostess or manager manually changed our reservation time from 8:15 to 8:45 to make it appear we were seated promptly which is not the case. We arrived on time at 8:15 and still waited 45 minutes to sit down- not okay. Isn't that the point of having a reservation? The food and service is always amazing but the wait made our experience a lot less enjoyable- especially with so many people milling around and COVID concerns. It appears that they really over book themselves and it's not fair to the patrons.
Service was very good. The waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and available. Food was excellent and the prices were high but worth it. Prosecco price was very high. Overall it was great.
waited a long time to be seated with reservation, thought food was ok, ordered pasta with garlic, oil and spinach and was served pasta with red sauce.
Wonderful service and great meal !
Excellent all around from the moment we walked in, our waiter was fantastic with suggestions. Food was superb!!
Really good calamari, really good spaghetti vongole 👌🏻
I visited with my attorney! He loves it! Gianni is always great! The lobster fra Diablo is awesome! I also tried the burratta- terrific! Thank you!
I had the filet and my husband had the roasted chicken over risotto special. This was our first dining experience during the pandemic. The outside tables, waiter and ambiance was perfect and best meal I’ve had in years!
Our waiter Johnny guided us the way thru an amazing 3 course family style meal. Make sure to get the mama meatball and all four of us enjoyed it along with other apps and entree’s and cappuccino and deserts were very good
Great dinner, great service! Food is consistently delicious!
Even sitting at outdoor sidewalk table, the blasting 90's pop music playing inside was overwhelming. Even asked the waiter to turn it down and he said he couldn't stand it either and wasn't allowed to.. stevie b playing, not frank Sinatra or dean martin?? Not the vibe we go to north end for.. then ordered classic italian antipasto, and got 3 slices of 3 kinds of deli meats, and literally barely an ounce of cheese, it was pathetic... . The only positive of the experience was the meatball we got TO GO because we couldn't stand the blaring rap music.... what used to be my favorite spot in North end is no more, does not live up to its reputation any longer
Fantastic meal had by all
Great experience. Food was amazing.
Great food and excellent service. Thank you. We will be back :)
Waited 40 mins for a drink. Ordered drinks twice to only be told the third time they didn’t have what I ordered. Had five different people stop at the table and none were our designated server. Service was slow overall and the entree did not have any flavor. Music was extremely loud for dinner.
I’ve dined at Strega many times before and never had an issue. In fact I’ve always loved Strega until I dined with them this past weekend. The service was average and I ordered the weekend special which was the Cacio e pepe, and I assumed since it’s just cheese and pepper pasta there would be no issues. The pasta tasted like nothing and the dish was $38 for cheese pasta. I don’t mind paying any amount for good food but $38 for plain pasta that didn’t deliver was really disappointing.
