    I must another outstanding experience at Strega Italiano - Back Bay. As usual Darwin and Tannielle were outstanding, personable attentive to me and to the entire bar area. They both compliment each other and are truly a staple and great asset for Strega. The know the menu and make tremendous recommendations. Their social skills are second to none. This is a must especially Tuesday or Wednesday when they work. I will see them next week. Thank you for always making me feel special.

    Absolutely amazing! We were greeted warmly at the door- dinner was delicious- everyone enjoyed their appetizers and dinner- Oscar our server was a delight- the bus boys had our waters filled the whole time on this hot night! The restaurant and music were beautiful as well. The manager brad checked on our meal- thank you! The whole experience was just great- a real fine dining experience that we all thoroughly enjoyed- one of the best dinners we have had out.

    Dinner @Strega was amazing!!! The food was beyond scrumptious and the decor is divine! The maitre d gave me & my friend a warm welcome upon arrival as well as asked who was celebrating a birthday, which was me. The waiter, Steve, was very nice & accommodating and gave us great recommendations for food & wine. The busboy was friendly and packed our leftovers nicely. I will definitely eat at Strega the next time I am in Boston! I highly recommend dining there.

    Having dined at Davio' and La Pizza e La Pasta in Eataly while visiting Boston, Strega Italiano was less satisying than the other two. It's Italian wedding soup was mediocre, as was its bread, and its gravy (red sauce) was distinctly inferior

    What a wonderful dining experience. We try not to eat in the hotels we stay in, as food can be drab, but Strego in the Park Plaza was terrific. The food was exceptional. Some of the best I have had stateside.

    I must say once again Strega did not disappoint. Darwin and Tannielle were so professional and courteous while working the Bar and Bar tables. Making sure they greeted everyone and attended to all our needs. They are a solid team and bring me back weekly. String employees for Strega. Bret is always professional and attentive to greet everyone that walks in the door. Strega Italiano Back Bay is a must if in town for business or pleasure.

    High end Italian menu with broad enough main course and appetizer selections for everyone. Service may be a bit slow for some but we enjoyed the time between courses to make it a leisurely meal.

    We had an absolutely lovely time! First thing, we were asked if we wanted to sit in a quieter area, to which we answered “Yes!” The staff were very attentive & friendly. Food was delicious- a shared mussels appetizer, mussels, followed by a chicken dish for my husband & a lamb dish for me. Generous portions!

    It was our second time Strega and it didn’t disappoint. Our server pablo was so professional didn’t bother us too much but checked in enough. The chicken piccata was delicious and steak cooked perfectly. It was busy but felt comfortable, brad the manager stopped by to check on us- nice touch to an overall great time! Will be back for sure!

    Good food but the waiter was a little slow on orders for the drinks from the bar. We were told because it was because a new bartender: however, we wouldn’t expect the bartender it’s such a nice restaurant to be a rookie! Overall a good place to eat with good food but we need a better wait/Bar staff before we can give it five stars.

    Octopus app was over cooked and had to be returned. All other apps and entrees were good for the 4 of us. My lamb chops were perfect but the risotto side was dry. Key lime pie was very good except the crust which was too thick and spoon provided had trouble cutting through. I had to ask twice ice for my water. Price point was a bit steep for the quality.
