    Nuovo was an exceptional dining experience. The menu is wonderful, but I decided to go with the specials knowing they might not be available again. My first course was a Burrata caprese salad. This was a stunning presentation and truly delicious. For my main course I ordered the sirloin steak and it was prepared to perfection. I appreciated that they had an organic red wine by the glass. I live 35 minutes from Nuovo, and the trip is worthwhile. I highly recommend dining here.

    While the food was excellent, the evening was made unpleasant by our server, Amela. She rushed us through dinner, bringing out salads and entrees at the same time. And then she began questioning us about dessert before our meals were half over. At the same time she was not attentive. I was left with no drink for a good portion of my meal and she was nowhere to be found. By the time she did return, we decided to forgo dessert and just ask for the check. We sat for over 15 minutes waiting for her to return. The food was delicious but not so much that it could overcome poor service

    Always great food! The staff cares about their presentation, attention to the details, and making the customer feel special. Our waitress asked if we were celebrating a special occasion— it was my husband’s birthday…and of course, she brought his dessert to the table with a candle and sang “happy birthday!” It was perfect.

    I had grandparents who lived off of Shrewsbury St. for many years starting when they arrived here from Italy in the 1920's. So, our history runs deep in this area. Nuovo was a wonderful find on Shrewsbury St in Worcester. we made reservations online with no problem at all. Arrival was easy with Valet parking right next to the building. Our table was ready and we sat right way. First up was beverages: 1. House water - as expected it tasted like Worcester water. So, we bought bottled water instead. No big deal at all 2. Cocktails - Linda got the Nuovo mojito which she loved and I got a Bombay Sapphire Martini, up, with twist. You will see a picture of my martini after a few sips. These drinks were quite small for the 12$ each price tag. Appetizer was Fig mascarpone in filo dough. Nice dish. Salad was wonderful. we got the Cesar salad. Fresh, crisp, and nice dressing. Main Course: 1.Linda opted for the Lobster meat and tail Mac and Cheese. Loaded with lobster. She said it was a good choice for her. 2. I went for the cioppino which was loaded. Came with a red sauce (Gravy) which was delightful. Not spicey! Did not come with bread to soak up the gravy. Had to ask for it. No big issue, the bread came out right away Staff responsiveness was very good. We had Michelle as our head waiter who was fun to talk to and was very efficient. The owners, Loretta and her husband Alex (head chef) separately stopped by our table to say hello. Nice touch since they were looking for any feedback that would make our experience better. And there were none. The pictures I took are later in the courses. I apologize for having these pics, but it may still give you an idea of the quality of the menu offerings. Linda and I would certainly return to this cozy, high quality restaurant.

    Food and service was great as usual. Only thing that irks me is that they charge extra for rolls when other restaurants, especially Italian ones, provide them at no charge. It seems like nickel and diming customers to charge extra for them. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable night out as usual for Nuovo.

    I ordered the lemon chicken soup and it was cold, I told the waiter and he said it was supposed to be hot but did nothing and still billed us, the table next to us came in 15 mins after us and order after us and we were 2 people and we wanted 45 mins and they were done and left by the time we received our bill, I asked the waiter and he just said they have alot of to go orders, then the food came and it was just Par, not great not bad, my wife wine was left un filled for 35 mins, never again we will go to Leo's of Via but not to Nuovo's, the bill was 109.50 for two with out tip but we have class and left 25%

    Yes, Nuovo is one of my all time favorites! They pay attention to my dairy allergy and the owners care about their restaurant. They come out at times to make sure the guests are happy. My son and I go there whenever we can. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but the food quality is worth it based on overall restaurant prices in this area and this day and age.

    This place is truly a pleasant surprise. We had a business meeting here and had no idea what to expect other than a good looking menu. The service was fantastic and the food was shockingly good. All three of us at the dinner were really happy we chose this place and would definitely recommend it to anyone. The menu was full of variety and a different take on several of the dishes which turned out to just be fantastic. I can’t say enough good things about this location.
