Show Time !My husband and I decided to try Nuovo on a recent Saturday night before catching a show at the Hanover Theater. We had an excellent meal at Nuovo! The menu is traditional Italian/Mediterranean cuisine and very well done. I often hesitate when I see risotto on a menu (its rarely cooked properly) and with my surf&turf special I had a side dish of risotto and it was cooked perfectly! The service was excellent, the waitstaff is knowledgable and attentive and when it came time to get the bill the waitress asked me if I was going to the Hanover and if I had a membership card I was entitled to 10% off the bill! That put the perfect finishing touch to a lovely dinner at the Nuovo. We will be back! Thank you.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery, very goodMy husband and I had dinner mid-week at Nuovo; it was very quiet, but quite pleasant. Service was attentive, courteous, and prompt. The menu has many tempting choices -- we ordered the osso buco and and salmon Atlantico, both of which are highly recommended. We look forward to returning here to sample more menu items and to enjoy the hip, elegant ambience...6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMhas a unique appitizer menuhas a unique appitizer menu plates an apps are well portion wait staff did know portion size in plates that help me with my parents choice6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat all around!Service, drinks, food and atmosphere were all fantastic!
Drinks:My wife is very particular about her martini, and was happy form the very first sip! (in contrast, she sends her martini back at least half the time when we go out)
Favorite meals in our group:
We were a party of 6, and two in our group had the filet - which was incredibly tender and flavorful! They gave it an A
Two in our party had the Chilean Sea Bass, and one gave it an A, one an A- (that was me - I would have liked it to have a bit more spice in the sauce)
Service was fantastic - and the ambiance was perfect for our group of 6 to talk and laugh all dinner long.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night outcelebrated two graduations. service and food was excellent.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe pianist with a grand pianoThe pianist with a grand piano playing during dinner is the perfect touch!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingOutstanding food, service and ambience.

We will be back!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. IThe food was excellent. I had the special and the waitress did not tell us the cost of special and we were surprised when we got the bill. My special was even higher than the most expensive food on the menu. I think that when the cost is that much ($33), the customer should be alerted of this. We would definitely go again but if I order the special, I will make sure I will ask the cost.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite Worcester restaurantWe go to a nice restaurant 3 to 5 times each month. Nuovo has become our favorite Worcester area restaurant. My mother loves the lamb chops and she loves lobster. Recently Nuovo had a lobster special. My mother ordered the lobster for her meal, and the lamb chops to take home. The owner/chef came to the table and told my mother how he would prepare the chops so that she could put them in the oven for 15 minutes and they would be cooked just right. With the modest sized dining room it seldom becomes noisy. The food has been universally excellent and the service as well. The valet parking right at the front door is really appreciated. Nuovo has an intimate feel that is very welcoming.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great. OurEverything was great. Our waitress paid attention to us but wasn't overbearing, that's always a huge plus. Food was great. Would definitely return!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNuovo in WorcesterHad two (2) great entrees. One from the menu - Costellette D'Agnello alla Griglia (Baby Lamb Rib Cutlets) and one special - the Italian whole Sea Bass.
Both were excellent. A very nice white wine from Tuscany (Pinot Bianco) went well with both dishes.
Excellent spot for pre-show dinner at the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, but not within walking distance; so leave enough time to park in the garage across from the theatre.
No time for dessert, so no information to give.
Our waitress and hostess were very nice.
The restaurant has a very-wide patio door open to the street for Al Fresco dining, but the traffic noise isn't very nice.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding as wellFood was outstanding as well as the service. Highly recommend you give it a try!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful meal!The food, from start to finish, was wonderful as was the service.

WE went on a Wednesday night and had a booth which greatly improved the experience.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Went out for my husbands birthday. Food was wonderful, service was excellent, we would definitely go back.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly RecomendThis place is awesome. I highly recommend it to anyone. We went on a Saturday at 7:00pm and the place was packed. While they do seem to jam people in a little bit it was still romantic. If you were listening to the crowd it seemed a bit loud however it was not so loud that you could not have a conversation, but it was loud enough that even the table right next to you would not be able to over hear your conversation.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinner!This was the first time dining here for most of our party and we will definitely be returning. We ordered appetizers, which were great, especially the phyllo wrapped fig marscapone. Our five dinners were so good, we ended up sharingsamples all around. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. This is a lovely restaurant and certainly a 'neighborhood gem'.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our evening immensely.We enjoyed our evening immensely.
