“Worth the wait...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant and would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is staying in Plymouth.

We did have to wait for about 45 minutes for a table as they were really busy. We enjoyed a pre-dinner drink and viewed the menu and wine list while we waited.

We shared the meat balls as a started, which were soft and flavoursome, they were accompanied by a lovely tomato sauce.

For main I had the lobster ravioli and it was absolutely lovely. There were lovely pieces of lobster through the sauce as well as the filling.

Unfortunately they had run out of dessert of the day which was a little disappointing.

Overall we had a nice meal and pretty good service too.

“Mixed experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

The staff at this restaurant were very friendly and efficient. We had the 'sharing' antipasto which was excellent - especially the aubergine.
For main courses we had the seafood 'zuppa' and a lamb dish. Seafood was tasty but the lamb proved to be very tough which was a disappointment to OH who had chosen it.

“Quality Italian cuisine in a nice atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

We frequent Cafe Strega throughout the year. It is located in downtown Plymouth on the most southern end. We have eaten both at the bar during weeknights and in the dining room on weekends. The service is excellent, however, some bartenders are a little more professional than others. The lasagna is very good with a large portion for sure. The sauce/gravy is sweet. The lobster ravioli is also delicious in a cream sauce. Again, the portion is big. I have had the filet steak twice with total mixed results. Nice quality meat. Once it was WAY over-cooked! They have a nice wine selection. The desserts are really good. I like the Mamba. It is a white chocolate coated mange sherbert to die for. I go there for that alone sometimes!

“Outstanding in every wife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Our restaurant of choice in Plymouth, where we reside five months of the year. We go on average of once every week. And when we have friends visiting, we take them!

The food is individually prepared and top quality. Drinks are excellent. Service is first rate. And while not inexpensive, we feel get value for our money, which is why this is our number one in Plymouth.

“Great dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Visited on a Saturday night: waitress was great-- had the scallops with balsamic reduction for Appetizer: served sizzling hot which was wonderful! Enjoyed a leisurely dinner with dessert: attentive service even though 2 large parties were there: we were pleasantly surprised as reviews were inconsistent:
