Food was excellent and our server was attentive and very sweet. We sat in the lounge on a very busy Saturday night. Although we are thrilled to see people out and enjoying restaurants again, it was loud! We had to shout across the table. Otherwise it was a lovely night out.

They show a very nice dining room, but thats a function room upstairs. The "dining room" is a bunch of cheap tables in tge bar room and adjacent. Food was amazingly overpriced and skimpy. The $35 ciopinno was two shrimp, a few calamari and mussels and some shreds of salmon and broth. No pasta. Disappointing. There is no veal. The $26 chicken marsala was underwelming considering thr price. Also had a $12 ceasar salad. Fairly small and mayo-intense dressing. There were no anchovies - waitress explained they are a $2.50 option. There are many better Italian restaurants in Worcester. Many.

Food was very good and the apps were especially enjoyed: meatballs, escargot, bruschetta and calamari. Everyone raved about them and all enjoyed their entrees. Most were too full for dessert but the molten chocolate cake with gelato was decadent and my son enjoyed a limoncello whipped dessert. Our waiter was very attentive and nice. It was a little pricey-especially some of the cocktails but it was a special occasion, so okay.

A broad Mediterranean menu and daily specials give diners a variety of meals to choose from. I've never had a bad experience there. The owners and staff go out of their way to make you feel at home and enjoy your meal. I highly recommend the beef tenderloins with champagne risotto and roasted vegetables. Outstanding!

We both ordered the chicken francaise with risotto. I chose the salad for my appetizer and my husband chose the soup. The salad was very small and consisted of mainly lettuce and my husband's soup portion was just plan ridiculous. The main meal and desserts were very good, but again they cut the portions. If you want to participate in restaurant week then you need to fully participate not just offer a special and cut down the portion sizes. Wondering if anyone else is sick of paying $12 dollars for a glass of wine when you can purchase a bottle of the same wine at the liquor store for 13 dollars? It is not just Nuovo but most of the restaurants in this area do the same thing. I would recommend the restaurant for the food but maybe just save for a special occassion.

It was very busy and loud, and felt a bit rushed to free up our table. Aside from the noise level the ambiance and decor was very nice.

We requested romantic seating and I think we got the most romantic seat in the restaurant. From the seating to the service to the food. Our waitress was very attentive in all of our wants. The food was perfect, from the appetizers to the entrees to the dessert. This was our first time here but definitely will not be our last. Great wine and drink list as well. Just a perfect dinner date night for my wife and I.

I had the Lobster Pasta and you could just taste how fresh everything was. Great Service. One thing I would have preferred was bread served before dinner & authentic Italian music instead of Enrique Iglesias & Ricky Martin
