- Diner1VIPDined on 10/25/2014Love the new menu. Good beer choices and excellent selection of wines. New menu offers some small plate options which allow for greater experimentation. Fresh made pastas are always excellent although my linguine was overcooked. First time that ever happened here.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/24/2014Service was lousy. Waitress never went through specifics of menu, had to ask about everything while the waitress attending the table next to ours was delightful and very thorough with her customers. We ordered something off the online menu which was no longer available. They had to substitute a few items. The portions were way too small (seemed like a half portion compared to other restaurants), yet the prices were rather high. The quality of the meal was very lacking. Ordered a few limoncello's (not on the menu) and was unpleasantly surprised with the cost ($10 each). Sad in that this was the first time at this location. My wife and I often frequented the Worcester location when it was open. Always had a good experience. Will not return.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 10/18/2014Been twice; very good both times. Food is fresh and tasty.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A special night was had by allOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 10/17/2014The girls in my family drove in from Agawam MA and celebrated my sisters 80th birthday. Everything was outstanding especially the antipasto! I love the new open kitchen.Special Features:
- Excellent foodOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 10/17/2014My first time and third for my guest. The homemade linguini was good. Great food. Regular upstairs dining room was full so was seated in first floor room. Had to move to bar because it was so loud there. Solid ceilings and walls with nothing to absorb sound.
- YummyOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/10/2014The Eggs and Bacon appetizer is to die for and the homemade pasta is delicious. Service was attentive but not overwhelming.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Italian food in SturbridgepmbrackenDined on 10/10/2014My date and I had a lovely meal, starting with the Chef's choice appetizer(a great option for foodies, as you don't know what you're going to get until it comes to the table). The service was wonderful and attentive, but not overwhelming. My date had the swordfish special, which came with a crispy panko and Parmesan crust. She said it was one of the best meals she's ever eaten. I had perfectly seared scallops with a housemade black pepper linguine. The reasonable prices mean that we will be coming back often.Special Features:
- Great FindGigi81213Dined on 10/7/2014Rovezzi's was recommended to me by some "natives". Six of us, who were attending a duplicate bridge tournament in Sturbridge, went to Rovezzi's for dinner. Service and food were very good. The bread was fabulous. Everyone agreed that we would all return. Our recommendations were taken by others and they, too, made reservations for the following night. This was a great find!Special Features:

- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/4/2014Waited 35 min for dessert...told by waitress prob with order. Manager did apologize. Dress code went from well dressed to young family with father in work jeans with worn holes.. Inappropriate for an evening dinning room.Special Features:
- Enjoyed First Visit!kidrootbeerDined on 10/2/2014Very friendly waitstaff! Beer poured into a glass and delivered; Calamari was an appetizer-you must try this! Choice full-body pieces, cased in a very lite batter. For an entree I ordered the Salmon over Linguini (waitress proposed). A VERY Good choice! My date had a steak over sweet potato mash, and she loved it as well-it looked really nice from my view... Delicious table Bread (baked the Correct way-you'll like it!), 4 drinks, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and coffee and we were out under $100. The waitress was friendly and charming, and deserved her 20% tip. We'll be back, and you will be tooSpecial Features:
- Always GreatOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 9/28/2014Food was great. Service was very friendly and attentive. They split four dishes for us at no charge. The black pepper fettucini was delicious with the seared scallops. We also had it with the bolognese. Always enjoy dining here.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Authentic DiningTsleepsDined on 9/27/2014After dining at Rovezzi's Ristorante a few times, the service and food have been exceptional. It has a very comforting ambience that is great for groups and for romantic dinners. The staff provides great recommendations, and the specials are all very delicious.Special Features:
- Thumbs upOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 9/27/2014A staple whenever we visit the Sturbridge area. Service is friendly and knowledgeable . The kitchen is always devising new dishes which are a pleasure to try.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food but....OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 9/27/2014The food was good, server was very knowledgable. Was looking for homemade pasta and they do have that. For our first time visit, which they asked us upon arrival, they sat us near the stairs and we could hear people going up and down the stairs. The experience was much to be desired. One thing that turned me off was the salt and pepper shakers along with the olive oil containers were so covered in a film it was pretty disgusting. They should clean them in btw services.Special Features:
- anniversary nightMrWigglesDined on 9/26/2014Going to Rovezzi's is always a treat. Love the food there. Always want to order more than we can eat. Will continue to go back. Thanks !Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Absolutely the best spot in town.marthaBDined on 9/25/2014As always the food was EXCELLENT! I generally order the salmon when I go out and Chris Rovezzi is a master at offering the "same salmon" to be a totally different experience each time we go. My husband stayed with his favorite which is the lobster tortellini and once again he raved about it. We go to Rovezzi's as often as our budget allows. We have tried other upscale restaurants in town and by far Rovezzi's outshines them all in their quality and presentation of food, to the ambiance and to the attention paid to each diner. This time we sat in the lounge area because Rovezzi's was featuring Sam James as the evenings entertainment. It was a bit loud and energetic but there are also quiet nooks for an intimate dinner at the same time.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/12/2014Food was delicious, as usual. Service was excellent. All staff work well as a team. Live music was playing in the bar area - which was very good, but did not lead to quiet conversation in the upstairs dining area.Special Features:
- Great foodSteezeDined on 9/9/2014The home made pasta's are terrific as was the dining experience.Special Features:
- Fabulousj1963Dined on 9/6/2014Everything we have been to Rovezzi's we have had the best service and meal. We just love it.Special Features:
- Great ItalianWakesvegasDined on 9/5/2014My wife and I loved our dining experience. I often tell people that you can always get a great steak at Italian restaraunts. Rovezzi's did not disappoint. I had the sirloin over sweet potato hash. Cooked perfectly just plain amazing. My wife had scallops over pepper fettuccine equally amazing as she had more than enough to share with me. For dessert we had the International. Ice cream roles in corn flake with magic shell and whipped cream. Fantastic!! We spent two days at Brimfield which we very much enjoyed but, the memory will be Rovezzi's. The music was a little loud and I would like to get a glass of Pinot Noir (only offered by bottle). Neither of these issues would keep me from returning.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always FABHJHryDined on 9/3/2014Never had a bad meal!! Whether I try an old favorite or something new, it never fails to please!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/30/2014We have never been here before and we were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was!!!

- Visit to Rovezzi's.TSLSVIPDined on 8/30/2014We visited Rovezzi's on a Saturday night. Food was very good The Caprese salad starter was very fresh and among the best I have ever had. Soup of the day choice seemed a little strange - corn chowder - would have liked a more Italian style soup as a choice. Gnocchi was very good as were the scallops carbonara style. Service was good until end of meal, took quite some time for dessert and check, but several large parties had been seated. Overall, a very good experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Big Thumbs upNYCOutlawDined on 8/22/2014Group of four, arriving late from NYC. Seated immediately. Stellar hostess. Stellar waitress. Made my day with a kicking no vodka xtini (signature cocktails). Found a new favorite drink. Friends had leftovers for lunch and still raved. In summary: Fabulous seasonal foods. Excellent pasta dishes. Excellent seafood. Nice bar.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/16/2014The most savory food and seasonings that we have tasted in a long time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Jennifer A.OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 8/16/2014Went for my fiancé's birthday and asked for a romantic spot, definitely got my way! Loved the family, yet high-class feel of the entire restaurant. Overall, delicious food, great atmosphere... You won't be disappointed!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always a HitDavisDined on 8/16/2014We celebrated my husband's birthday by having dinner at Rovezzi's Saturday night. Friends told us about this restaurant 15 years ago when we moved to Tolland, Ct and we have been eating there ever since. We expect the food to be excellent and we are never disappointed. Occasionally we decide to eat there at the last minute. If it happens to be a weekend we know we will not get a table without a reservation so we sit at the bar. It is a very comfortable setting and usually results in conversations with the bartenders and other patrons who are also eating at the bar. We always leave feeling that we have been well taken care of.Special Features:
- Best in SturbridgeOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 8/9/2014Rovezzi's has it all. Great food paired with just the right wine suggestions, impeccable service, inviting atmosphere. There's nothing better in Sturbridge.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Rovezzislove2dinebynineDined on 8/9/2014We really love the Bruschetta, most of the italian things we'v had are very good...I ordered fish once and it was like a hunk of rubber. You couldn't even get a fork into it. It seems that your visit really depends on the server you get. We always ask for Tami or Shannon. Both extremely professional and friendly as well as efficient.Special Features:
- Great foodmichaelDined on 8/5/2014Dinner was fantastic . Service is good. Staff is knowledgeable . Looking forward to our next visit.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- An underwhelming visit.UnderwhelmedDined on 8/2/2014My first visit to Rovezzi's proved to be underwhelming. After hearing wonderful reviews about the food I had some disappointing occurrences. First, my water glass had a lipstick mark on the edge. The edge of the wall was very dirty. Our appetizer was so spicy that we could not taste the cherry clams nor the mussels. My entree was good but 3 scallops for a $23 meal was not right! My dining partner had veal parmigiana that was just OK. It was far from outstanding - little on the dry side. For dessert we had the Creme Brûlée. Although it was tasty, it was not real custard. It appeared to be a pudding. I would have thought that a high-end restaurant would know how to bake a "real" custard. All in all my visit to Rovezzi's was disappointing.Special Features:
- Great Food and servicewineanddine915VIPDined on 7/29/2014Great Food. I had the Bruschetta for an appetizer and it's always delicious but this time was extraordinary due to the butter toasted side. Delicious.
- Excellent Food; Energetic Night OutDandPVIPDined on 7/26/2014Rovezzi's delivers great food from the amazing bread served with olive oil to novel and well prepared salads and entrees. Scallops were seasoned to perfection, served on an amazing puree of vegetables. Smashed potatoes excellent. A good place for small and larger parties. A lovely private room can be used as a function room for a not-too-large private party.Special Features:
- Service slowbostonbonnieDined on 7/26/2014On an only slightly busy Saturday night we found the service to be really slow. The food quality far exceeded the service level, particularly the innovative brussel sprout salad. Especially slow toward the end of service, dessert and the check took roughly 45 minutes and left us with a damper on our otherwise very good meal.Special Features:

- Night OutOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/29/2014I found the food to be very good but I found the prices were more than I wanted to spend. Very pricey.Special Features:
