Restaurants & Bars

Mediocre Strega

Had dinner there last night, party of 5. Had a reservation but had to wait about 15 minutes for table. Very small and crowded restaurant with limited bar area and seating. We had nowhere to stand and were in the way of everyone - waiters,

Apps were OK - salads and prosciutto & melon. Entrees included seafood fettucine, angel hair and clams, chicken in orange wine sauce and 2 veal dishes. The pastas were excellent - all homemade. Other entrees were OK. Desserts included hazelnut cake (which we had not ordered), chocolate cake and pineapple sorbet (which we had) Once we sat down, service was good.

Total tab including 3 beers and 2 wines and tip came to $280. They suggest you give your valet claim stub to the waiter 20 minutes prior to departure which we did. Our party had 2 cars; 1 car arrived promptly but we had to wait an additional 20 minutes for ours.

I won't be rushing back, I thought it was a typical N. End trendy place. If I do go back, I'd definitely get the pasta.
