“Chef Boyardee served by exotic dancers”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

If you like your waitresses leggy and silicone-top heavy filled. And, you like your red sauce to be orange, your pasta lukewarm and your credit card maxed out before you get past the appetizers, then Strega is your nirvana. It's like Bada Bing from the Sopranos, but not quite as classy. Wide screen TVs encircle the restaurant, playing The Godfather, Analyze This and various other Cosa Nostra-themed portrayals of Italian Americans. Insulting? Perhaps. Lame and uninspired? Definitely. I'll never return.

“Nice waterfront restaurant near the Marine Industrial Park area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Good restaurant, a bit overpriced, but we wanted a place that was open late after we saw a show. Service was good and portions were larger than expected. Food tasted fresh. The drinks in particular were very expensive. Give it a shot but just be forewarned of the prices.

“Goodfellas become kings of the kitchen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

When it comes to Boston's North end this place has amazing food.... They had multiple TVs playing your favorite wiseguy movies as you eat dinner... The bar is small but accommodating... The staff in this restaurant are impeccable... And the quality of the food from the everyday item to the specials is of the highest quality and most delicious food I've had...
This is a must go to place the Boston's North End

“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

An amazing dining experience with excellent service in a beautiful waterfront location. The restaurant was busy, but the wait staff are top notch. Service was attentive and the food beyond compare. Popular restaurants in tourist destinations on weekends usually result in a sub par experience, but not at Strega! There were families, couples, young and old - all with smiles on their faces and full stomachs. Loved it...
