About Our Pizza

Today, pizza has become so widely available that its simplicity, quality, and authenticity are often lost. A Neapolitan-style pizza is the most genuine style to the heart and culture of Italy. The freshest ingredients are combined to create a savory experience that cannot be outdone. A quick passage through the ideal brick oven temperature ensures a consistent product that leaves the palate craving more. Within seconds of exposure to the brick oven heat, the crust begins to cook while the ingredients merge to create an aromatic and flavorful pie.

This is the true secret of our pizza where the quality of the ingredients, combined with the passion and skill of the Pizzaiolo, ensures an exceptional dish every time. Strega offers a truly original pizza style, handcrafted and served with authenticity and excellence in mind. We hope that our customers share the passion for the history and uniqueness of the pizza that is dearest to our hearts.

The pizza is the dish symbol of the Mediterranean diet. The real heart of the pizza is the use of simple and fresh ingredients cooked to perfection.

  • I can't imagine anyone writing a bad review about this restaurant, I have been there at least half a dozen times and everything is always excellent. Owner goes out of his way to be accommodating offering many suggestions and explanations about the food and it's preparation. This is a place not to be missed and has become a weekly routine for us.

  • Absolutely amazing. I was actually getting high eating this pizza. Now I know what euphoria feels like. I have no desire to eat American pizza anymore. We have been to Strega 3 times and every time it was excellent. If you want to know how good the food is in Italy, eat at Strega. Fresh and pure as could be.
