I ate here with two colleagues while on business in Boston. We had tried another restaurant a few doors down, which was closed, and were directed to Strega. We later realised that there are 3 restaurants in the same chain (the names of the others I cannot remember).
The restaurant itself is very nice. There are plenty of pictures on the wall of stars that had eaten there (which I actually find a bit tacky) and a massive wall of screens showing Italian blockbusters (Goodfellas, Wise Guys, The Godfather etc.).
Our waiter was very attentive and the service throughout our stay was excellent. We were constantly asked if we were ok and how our food was. It was a nice touch.
I opted for the Strega dish, which consisted of king prawns and scallops in a creamy sauce with fresh fettucinni. It was divine and the scallops were the sofest I have ever eaten. The pasta was lovely and soft, could tell it was freshly made. The only problem was that it was so filling I couldn't finish it all!!!
A very nice lunch in an interesting area. If you love Italian and love Boston you have to check out this place!
