I’ve eaten at Strega a few times over the years. The few times I’ve gone I’ve never ordered on my own and let our waiter pick for us and we ate and drank like kings!

We dined here on a Sunday evening. The place was bustling but not packed. We were seated at a lovely window table. Entire meal and wine was out of this world!! Polite and friendly service. Highly recommend!

This is a really good restaurant, though a little expensive. The pasta (crab) has to be one of the best I’ve had. Homemade, lovely sauce. The starters were more limited and the dessert “ok”. Steak wasn’t bad, though there are 3 better steak houses within...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

There's street parking but you would have to pay for that. If you can take local transportation it's much easier
