First-time visit. The food, service and atmosphere was incredible! Truly an all-around amazing experience and we will definitely be returning frequently.


Owner of Mamba Boxing Club in Milford here, and I just want to say as a New Yorker at heart this is some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had in Connecticut. Everything is fresh, family owned and operated. Call me bias (since I’m also a mom and pop shop) but the chef comes out to sing to show all his talents on art. He’s not just an amazing cook, he knows what he’s doing. He’s building a great community to be in! The atmosphere here is extraordinary, I’m here before Christmas Eve and it’s jam packed! Service is still great and everything comes out on time! Try it, you won’t regret it!


We are pizza connoisseur's of pizza, from Milford (Papa’s) to New Haven (Pepi’s) to Naples, Rome, Sicily, Chicago and New York. We have traveled extensively in Italy, including Naples, Amalfi and Sicily. Strega has the most authentic Neapolitan pizza I've had in the states. The dough is magical, light, fluffy volume, beautiful color and melts in your mouth. The ingredients are both fresh and authentically southern Italy, merging both Naples and Italy, reflecting this dynamic couples heritage. The house wines are superb. The negative reviews are, quite honestly, ill informed and inexperienced with true Italian cuisine.

We don't normally frequent the same restaurants often to try new things but Strega is a different case... The atmosphere is cozy, and homey like you are eating at a relatives house. The food is incredible, pizza is fantastic. The service is bar none, every server is pleasant.Food: 5/5


The address listed on the OpenTable app in incorrect sending us in a residential neighborhood… please correct The food is good but there are some opportunities for improvements - tuna tartar - delicious, but not a single cracker, chip or crostini to go along with it. At a min you should ask -pizza - has only one to share for the table, it was one of the better pizza we had around the area - gnocchi - we all ordered 4 different varieties and all needed salt and the quantity could been a bit more. - desert was good and sufficient Overall good food, but considering this is an Italian cuisine, the portions should be larger


Excellent food and service! Our waitress was very knowledgeable on all wines and food We will be back.


Terrific place, terrific food, terrific hard-working staff. Our first visit so will fine-tune our future orders. The beef carpaccio was AMAZING, loaded with black truffle shavings! Be sure to order the rosemary focaccia to go with it. The tuna tartare was good but probably not the best choice at an Italian restaurant. The Calabrese pizza was wicked awesome, perfectly spicy with very special cheeses and a wonderfully Napolitano crust. The cannelloni seemed more like manicotti… all cheese and mushrooms. Very yummy, just not what I expected (my fault for not reading the menu carefully). It is a bit loud for those of us over 60, sigh. Lovely evening, though, looking forward to our next visit!


Great Wine List and Food! We had a wonderful holiday dinner here.

Terrific food and keeps getting better over time.


If you are a foodie, Strega is a must. This is authentic Italian food made with care and superbly done. I tried the Tonna (tuna) salad which was recommended by a friend and is not something I would normally order. Large pieces of tuna, shaved fennel, tomatoes, carrot and mixed greens topped in a light oil vinaigrette toss. It was delicious. The Cannelloni is made with fresh pasta and filled with a ricotta mushroom filling, topped with a Bechamel mushroom sauce. It was light but filling and oh so good. Listening to the owners wife describe the desserts is a treat unto itself. Freshly made, and fresh. The menu is limited but not disappointing. The waitstaff is attentive and even when the restaurant is jamming, you are treated well. Strega is a gem!


Great food. Upbeat vibe. Terrific server (Carmella). Definitely return.


Amazing experience. Zack was a great waiter. Super friendly, polite and personable. Definitely will be back!


Amazing Italian restaurant, finally a legit real and authentic. I’m Italian, born and raised in Italy, moved here 2 years ago and always struggled to find a spot like this. This is my spot from now on, either if you want a great pizza or one of their amazing dishes. Great ingredients, best quality products, from food to wines. Highly recommended!
