STREGA Italiano – Back Bay
All of our food—giant meatball, grilled bread with honey and red pepper blended burrata, bolognese and branzino—was outstanding.
Had a wonderful meal with my mother. The food was amazing as well as the atmosphere.
We love this place. The service is excellent, management is friendly and helpful, the food is very good and the music they play really adds to the experience and fun. Our one disappointment was to see that they have taken the filet pizza off the menu. That was one of our family’s favorite items. We would love to see them bring it back!!! We were also bummed to see the mushroom risotto off the sides menu. That said, the meatball appetizer was delicious and we loved our steaks and sides.
Atmosphere was Great , Service was A1
Definitely would come back here phenomenal Staff definitely worth the trip
I didn’t find the food a authentic Italian cuisine.
The Service was a bit slow but our server was friendly and helpful.
Prices were a bit high.
Absolutely wonderful in every way! Our server Raj was attentive, knowledgeable, kind and had perfect timing. The managers Bret and Mateo were warm, hospitable and professional. You can tell that everyone working at Strega Italiano loves what they do. That truly had a great impact on our visit. This restaurant has such a fun, lively yet polished vibe.
Our Bella Luna cocktails were fantastic. The oysters were fresh and delicious… some of the best we’ve had in a long time.
Highly recommend overall!
I am a frequent visitor to STREGA Italiano. The food and drinks are always outstanding. The service this visit was not up to par for me or my past experiences at STREGA. I would still highly recommend it.
Muy buen servicio y la Comida sensacional .
Made my partner and I’s anniversary super special.
Strega was recommended by a friend for great food. I was disappointed with the pasta that we didn't eat it and just took it with us. The servers were great, however they didn't understand my questions and often responses did not match what I was asking. They could not easily explain several dished to me. Our main waiter was knowledgeable.
Everything was amazing! Oscar our server was very professional and attentive!
The food was excellent. Service was sparse. Other people in the restaurant were sortof awful and we were seated too close together. Ambiance is sortof weird too.
Great ambiance, food was delicious, wait staff were great
Great staff. Had a very good time
The food was really delicious and the service staff were very attentive
My first time at Strega. Glad I went to the one on Arlington Street Back Bay Area. Food was delicious. Oysters for the price one pays can be bigger. But again DELICIOUS.
Mussels were good. Service was perfect.
Great food, good service and beautiful ambiance
Wonderful service! Loved the music selection, food and drinks were great! Overall a great experience!
Took my girlfriend and her friend out to catch up and have some QT. The energy was amazing, the music was sublime, and most importantly the food and drinks were exceptional. I enjoy Strega and their attention to detail and elegance in all aspect.
Our waiters were very welcoming and attentive! They made my celebration dinner extra sweet.
Loved everything. Great food and service. Outstanding place
Amazing birthday experience
Delicious food, felt very safe, wonderful waitstaff, didn't feel rushed at all!
Excellent service by the host and especially our waiter Victor. A little pricey, but the overall experience was well worth it.
The food was awful after apps and salad—main dishes were almost inedible.
We were a party of three who made a last minute reservation on Open Table. Food was very good, wait staff was attentive and polite. Tables were appropriately socially distanced and ambiance was fine. We did not like the booth where we were originally seated and were moved to another part of the restaurant with little fuss. Not inexpensive but worthy of a try if you are in town. I would go back.
Excellent meal and service.
When staying at the Boston Plaza Hotel, you'll be happy to know there's a restaurant right off the lobby that serves a truly wonderful Chicken Piccata (and I consider myself an expert when it comes to this dish). The only fault I found with it (and perhaps this is sheer naivety): the sauce doesn't have much, if any, lemon juice in it. Instead, you have to slice through the well-prepared thin slices of lemon and add them to your bite of chicken-and-sauce. A minor infraction: once I caught on, it really was delicious.
The chicken is served with a large portion of homemade linguini noodles. By "large portion" I mean 2-3 cups.
To start things off, I ordered a glass of Sauvignon Blanc (nice and dry), and a Caesar Salad. The salad needs work: too much dressing, and thin slats of parmesan cheese which were difficult to incorporate onto a fork. No croutons. I wouldn't order it again: you can get the same basic thing at any chain restaurant.
The downsides: when I was there in April of 2021, there was no sign on the restaurant door. I asked a woman at the front desk for directions to the Italian restaurant because I couldn't remember its name. She sent me out the back door "turn to the left". It was quite cold and I thought I was eating within the building, so it wasn't long before I turned back to ask again. This time another woman understood I meant the Italian restaurant just off their own lobby.
You wouldn't want to make this a daily stop: it's overpriced. But it's a restaurant that's made it this far through the COVID-19 pandemic (I believe I was the only one there), and I hope they make it. I also hope they re-work their Caesar Salad.
A last-minute reservation that turned out to be a delicious dinner and a lovely time.
The food, the service and the ambience were exceptional it was a wonderful experience,
Wonderful service! Was really impressed by the staff.
Jimmy the manager always does a great job running a phenomenal establishment. A++++
Had a great time celebrating my sons birthday there. Upscale vibe but not snobby. They play good music, the service was excellent, and the food was fantastic. I was surprised that there was some younger children running around and yelling at times as I normally don't see or expect that at these type of restaurants. Fine with us, but might bother some though. We had a blast and will def be back. :)
Great staff and great food!
Our waiter was wonderful. The soup was delicious and the chicken was very good.
The food, location and ambiance was amazing. However, the waiter was very pushy and made us feel rushed. He made the experience very uncomfortable and hesitant to dine there again
Food and service were terrific. Choice of music was poor for fine dining
While the food was great, the service was not. Half the time we couldn’t get a server for the life of us, like while trying to flag down 4 different people for cutlery once our meal had arrived (ending in my partner walking up to the bar to request it since the servers were ignoring us) At the same time, they were clearly trying to rush us out and use our table from the second food arrived. We were still eating when they started trying to clear plates. Mind you we spent less than an hour there total. Four or five different servers/busers were constantly circling our table to hurry us out, one of them even standing at the table waiting for me to finish so he could take my plate. Couple that with the incredibly rowdy all girls birthday party taking shots at the table next to us and it was pretty unpleasant
Great all around service and the food was great.
