  • We had a reservation for 4
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 11/22/2008
    We had a reservation for 4 at 8 pm. The bar area was full and it was just a couple minutes before 8, so we opted to wait for our table in the entryway. Had we known it would take as long as it did to seat us, we would have ordered drinks. Apparently the party occupying the table reserved for us was in no rush to leave even though they had paid the check. The hostesses were very, very nice and apologetic for our wait...not thier fault. They made every effort to make us feel welcome and comfortable while we waited and as some tables cleared gave us choices as to which room we could then be seated in. We ended up with a very nice table upstairs. In all, the restaurant is very nice on the eye, the service and the food were wonderful.

    We enjoyed it but were surprised at the limited lunch menu. We brought a couple who had never eaten there before and they enjoyed it a great deal. Bread is especially good.

  • Rovezzi's in sturbridge until
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/17/2008
    Rovezzi's in sturbridge until recently has been by far the best restaurant in town. My last two visits there though have been disappointing. The quality of the food and service has declined. The menu has changed and some favorite staples were not available. The decor has been changed downstairs, and now has les ambiance, less space for diners. Small details, such as small cheap wine glasses, and less expansive wine list have just been cheapened and now where they used to be. Very disappointed, and I have been a regular customer of Rovezzi's since they first opened.

    We have been to Rovezzi's many times and they never disappoint. An item that used to be on the menu but can still be asked for it "Trust the Chef". It can be an appetizer or an entree or both. The chef makes you something that is not on the menu but is tasty and beautifully presented. I order it every time and I have never been disappointed. You just can not have any food allergies because anything goes!

    We went out with another couple who we haven't visited with in a while and wanted to introduce them to Rovezzis. We had a very nice evening and our waiter, David, was impeccable. Needless to say our friends will be going there now! A 5 star restaurant close to home.. how wonderful! TM, Monson, MA

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 7/18/2008
    Knowing the Rovezzi family restaurant reputation for many years, we expected good things at another of their long history of locations. This was no disappointment. The food was excellent, priced very well; the service was sharp and attentive. Unfortunately, the upstairs dining area where we were seated was very loud, almost uncomforatably so. The ambiant noise was our only complaint.

    We would not have found Rovezzi's without Open Table. The portions are generous. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The venue is very pleasant, upstairs is great! Will return whenever we are in the Sturbridge area.

    Although my dinner was of very high quality, I didn't care for it as much as other dinners I've had at Rovezzi's. It was chicken Ameritriciana and it was just okay. I will definitely keep coming back, though.

    We had gone for a brunch - this resteraunt was HORRIBLE. We had a 10:30 reservations (in the middle of the brunch time offering) and there was absolutely no food left, they did not replenish them at all, there buffet tables were a mess, the waitress never came back and to top it all off - it was a present from my girls and it was EXPENSIVE. I don't thnk I'll ever go back.
