The name of the restaurant is inspired by the Legend of Janare of Benevento. Strega means ‘witch’ in Italian and Benevento is considered the “city of witches”. Even today, these women, called “janare”, from “dianare”, or “women priestesses of the goddess Diana” bestow upon Benevento an air of magic and intrigue.
Everything we serve is freshly made and we pride ourselves on wholesome Italian cooking using fresh and healthy ingredients. Our concept is modern, relaxed and reflects the Italy we are from.
We look forward to serving downtown New Haven.
