Diner Reviews
  • "Rovezzi'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."

  • "On 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."

  • "I found the food to be very good but I found the prices were more than I wanted to spend. Very pricey."

  • "The ever changing menu is one reason to return again and again to Rovezzi's. Each time I go I can can get something different and it is always special. My favorite is of course the house made pastas, but there is enough variety to make any taste bud happy. Our waitress was excellent... and the staff was always there and ready filling up water glasses and taking away empty plates. We had a wonderful evening."

  • "The food here didn't disappoint. Loved the fresh pasta and had one of the best meatballs I'd ever had. It was a little loud with a screaming child, which was a little disappointing since we were there for our anniversary dinner at 7 pm. The biggest negative I would say is that it is a bit noisy upstairs and the tables are a little close for a quiet dinner out, but I would return for the food."

  • "We eat at Rovezzi's often, but this last Friday was one of the best yet! The scallops were amazing!"

  • "The food was superb especially the antipasto and the veal. My husband couldn't finish the veal and had it the next day and said it was even better if that's possible. The service (Shannon was our waitress) was excellent and most friendly without overstepping her place. She suggested a particular cocktail that I had never had before and it was super - Strawberry Lemoncello. The place was fairly noisy but I guess most restaurants are that way nowadays. Chris, himself, came over to the table and made us most welcome. Will definitely go back this summer. The only problem, it's not closer to Worcester."

  • "Going out for dinner was a last minute decision and the place I chose was, Rovezzis. Whatever is ordered on the menu you can always ciunt on being delicious. Once you taste you food its very obvious it is fresh. If uou typically ho to the franchise/chain restaurants, treat yourself to great food you definitely will be very happy you did. "

  • "Meal outstanding as usual...... Waitress pre-occupied....and service slower than usual, especially since it wasn't busy! 2nd round of drinks sat made at the bar where we could see them and waitress too busy chatting with fellow worker...had to yell over to her to ask if drinks were ready when we knew they clearly were. But that usually isn't the norm.."

  • "Took my family here last night. Waiter forgot our Drinks.... Had to remind him after 20 minutes. Then, he forgot or Salad. I told the owner about our experience and did not care. I wouldn't mind but for three people for $84 I expect service to be impeccable. He lost me and my family as customers. We wont be back if the food was for free. Worcester's best chef my a**."

  • "It is one of our faverate restaurants! Everything That is served is perfectly cooked and perfectly served. We go to Rovezzi's at least six times a year. The restaurant was very busy last Sat. evening and the noise level was a bit loud but we are just happy that the restaurant does such good business so we do not mind the noise."

  • "Outstanding: We dined at the bar & had a perfect evening. The food was delicious & the wine list was really up to par w/some of the best wines I have had. Would recommend for a special evening for 2 or a great spot for a party of friends. Even the valet attendees were really polite & sociable."

  • "With high hopes for a memorable dinner we were left underwhelmed. Rovezzi's had been a favorite spot for special occasions but tonight's dinner was mediocre. The restaurant was busy and it seemed some of the staff were running a little ragged. Our appetizer came out astonishingly fast for a hot app leading us to believe it had been sitting for someone else as it was merely warm. All-in-all not a bad meal, just not what we were accustomed to."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Very crowded. Unfriendly greeting at check in. Hostess busy and preoccupied. Manager helped things along, but inconsistent service. The food was as good or better than usual however and in the end that is why this place is a keeper. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We arrived at the time of our reservation at 5:00. one family was ahead of us waiting to be seated. we waited over 5-10 minutes to be seated in an EMPTY restaurant. when they began seating people, a family that had showed up after us was seated, but that was understandable as they all hugged the server, clearly friends and family should get better treatment... I have never seen such a dysfunctional group of hosts attempting to seat people in an empty restaurant. We even got an awful attitude while being seated. At this point we were very close to leaving and its a shame we didn't. Our server was fine and the only thing that did not need improvement. The salads were not good and half of the party's of the meals were nothing special at all."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "There were 3 of us in the party. It was a work meeting. The food, wine and service were excellent. The people in my party enjoyed all. Best calimari I've ever had. Super wine list."
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "The food was very good starting with the appetizer right thru to the entree. Our table was very wobbly and they move us right away. My only issue was the noise level, but it was Saturday nite and crowded. Will definetly be going back"

    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "Overall we were quite disappointed with the Easter Brunch. In our opinion the food was not up to the Rovezzi's standards and the price was outrageous. We typically love eating here but never again for Brunch. Wish we could have written a better review but that's how we felt. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Special dinner for birthday that didn't disappoint. Appetizers were excellent as were the entrees. Service was friendly and prompt. Desserts were also excellent but the coffee was very disappointing. We are huge coffee fanatics and we feel that is can make or break a meal experience. As weak as it was it still could not put a bad spin on our dining experience. We will be back and will recommend Rovezzi's to friends."

  • "While there were a number of things we did like about Rovezzi's the loud guitar music did spoil the evening for me. The music was so loud that I found myself shouting to be heard by my date who was right across the table from me. This was not dinner music. That said, the restaurant would be nice for a date if the music was not present. The food choices are interesting and far from the standard Italian restaurant fare. Each food choice from appetizer to salad to entree is paired with a wine. I found that interesting. The waitress was pleasant and didn't rush us after we explained that we wanted to take our time over cocktails and an appetizer. That always wins extra points in my book. I would dine here again on a different night."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Place was great! The meal was awesome and the service was great as well. We really felt at home and 1/2 way through our meal we all said we can't wait to come back. I eat out a lot in MA, CT and RI.....this restaurant nails it....they get it. No request was to small and our waitress truly new the meals and menu. Keep up the good work!"

  • "The girls and I stopped at Rovezzi's for dinner after attending a terrific play at Stageloft, and we absolutely loved the food! We each ordered something different, and every one of us was happy with our meal. The homemade pasta was delicious, and the desserts are amazing! Would go back for sure."

  • "We enjoyed our evening out. The service was very good from all of the people. We enjoyed the Bistecca and the Gnocci. We were upstairs in a nice corner. The only thing that I could say is that it took the waiter a long time to bring things up from the downstairs. The food and wine was not timed well. Otherwise, the night was great."
