Fairy tale like Restaurant

This fairy tail restaurant serves excellent Italian food, excellent spaghettis and Milanese chicken and beef. However the decoration and atmosphere takes all the attention, La Strega (Witch in Italian), takes you into a trip to the world of fairy tales and witch movies. I´m sure that a witch... read more

The place has a great theme, delicious Italian food, but the service from the waiters it's bad, they forgot us, we had to look around for other waiters, I order coffee but they didn't offer me any sugar or milk, we had to order the menu from the manager to order dessert... if you don't mind a lame service, then...

We were taken good care of from the moment we entered the door. Had a little trouble reading the menu (think it was in italian) and got something completly different than I thouht I ordered, but it didn't matter, it taster amazing. The decor was a bit dated, but the service was good and we really enjoyed the whole experience.

We had an early dinner, and it was great. These waiters know their business. The minute you sit down they are ready to they will provide for you every need. The head waiter, Carlos, took the order and answered all of our questions. The pastas were prepared perfectly "Al dente"... Our hotel was the Crowne Plaza and it was one... More

Lovely yet comfortable Italian restaurant in the Col. Napoles section of Mexico City, about 3 blocks from the World Trade Center. We went for breakfast - less than $10 per entree. The wait staff was attentive yet not intrusive and the food tasty. Upon entering La Strega you are met by a beautiful, long,wood-topped bar. The main dining area features... More

The place is quite halloween looking place, starting from the name Strega=witch. But the food is just nice, the staff attention is always ready to serve but never overwhelming. We enjoyed the experience

A very nice Italian restaurant, excellent ambience/decoration, good food (not extraordinary). Good location, just one block from the World Trade Center in Mexico City. Service was very good. Live music. A nice dinner with colleagues in this Italian place. They have some good options of small rooms for private events.

Last time we were in this place some years ago, had a good food quality. This time we were six persons and we all had problems with our food. Too much for a coincidence. Sorry but you can find a much better quality italian restaurant almost anyplace at Mexico City.
