The food was good, it's always good! They were a bit short on wait staff that night, but we were a very large group so I'll cut them some slack on that! I will say that it's too bad the ping-pong/party room is so run down, it was a great idea when it started-nice tables/paddles. But now, there wasn't even one good paddle and only one of the 4 tables was playable (2 warped and one with no net). More

Drinks on the patio first w attentive service and good cocktails. Water! Very chlorinated and server said it was filtered. The food was excellent starting w the beef tartar, crispy calamari and butternut/crab bisque. We asked to share two entrees which we were told they would be happy to do. The plates were lovely but I wished they had advised us there was a $7.50 charge per entree. I am still glad we shared the venison. Will go back soon. More

First time visiting this family owned restaurant. I had brought my girlfriend and her two sisters; and they were very happy with the experience, the service and food. Myself, I had ordered a tenderloin medium and had to return it as it was served rare. But the waitress and staff handled the request very well and were able to serve the tenderloin as I requested. Their wine selection was decent; room for improvement, perhaps having a sommelier revise the selection. Our first choice off the menu was not available; which never reflects kindly on a restaurant that is striving to be Worcester’s top Italian Restaurant. However, the waitress, who was rather new and inexperienced at handling guests who know and appreciate wine, did the right thing and got the manager to help us with an alternative selection; which was appreciated, and we all enjoyed the recommendation. Ambiance is nice and where we sat provided for a quiet dining experience. In the end, I would revisit this restaurant. Their staff and service were outstanding! And they handled their mis-steps eloquently. Want the 5 stars, improve your wine selection and have available what is on the menu; and nail down the difference between rare, medium rare and medium when it comes to meat temperature. Just the same; 4 stars for a very good dining experience! More

Italian | Worcester, Central MA

As soon as we heard the restaurant was opening we made reservations and we went on day two. We were seated immediately and the staff certainly was up to the task of a full restaurant. We started with the Stuffed Peppers, Calamari and the Meatballs. All served quickly, hot and very good. The pepper itself being the most popular. It was actually better than the stuffing which was a bit dry. Entrees were the Sausage Cacciatore, Gnocchi with Lobster, Gnocchi with Vodka Sauce, Chicken Park, Carbonara and The Linguini with Clams. All very good especially the parm. Very flavorful and tender. Watch out with the Clam Sauce, lots of red pepper and a little sand. Strange too that there was no Salt and Pepper on any of the tables. My only gripe of the night... The wine pours are brutal. It's poured at the table, sometimes inconsistent with the amount but not sure ever reaching 3-4 ounces. At $10 and $11 for the house brand, very disappointing. Still I'll be back, great spot for Italian in Worcester. Looking forward to Sunday Dinners. More
