I had a delicious meal and an awesome waiter, Michael. My boyfriend, who chooses not to dine out because of many negative experiences, said he wants to go back! I never thought I would hear that from him!

Thank you for an enjoyable evening!

We had an amazing dining experience. They have very professional and welcoming wait staff. They don't have a kid's menu but bend over backwards to make either a smaller portion of something on the menu or as long as they have the ingredients anything off-menu. The food was perfect. Our family will be going back.

We returned to Rovezzi's for my husbands birthday. Waitstaff was very attentive and helpful and the food was excellent. I think this might just be our new favorite restaurant, even though it's a 30 minute drive to Sturbridge. Well worth it!

We've been here a few times and although we hear people rave about it, we are not impressed. We ordered calamari, and it was tough and lumped together and soggy. They replaced it and the second batch was better bit still was chewy. My meal came a good 5 minutes before everyone elses, no reason was given. We feel there are too many other good places and so it will be a long time before we try this again.

Great menu that is always changing - every time we go we get something new. There is an extensive wine list and each menu option has a wine pairing with it. There is also a menu option where you basically trust the chef to pick your meal. Love the live music being played - the place is noisy but you can still hold a conversation with your table. Food was great. I had the lobster stuff tortelloni which was in a lobster bisque sauce which was so good I used the bread to sop up the rest of the soup/sauce. My fiance had the bolognese which he also ate all of.

Rovezzi's is a neighborhood gem. The decor is warm and inviting and the food is outstanding.
On this visit I ordered the filet mignon, topped with goat cheese and mushrooms - it was perfection.
I ordered my steak rare, with a warm red center rather than a cold red center - this is difficult to achieve and they nailed it completely! Truly one of the best steaks I have ever had. Additionally you would be hard pressed to find a friendlier wait staff, thank you. A big recommend.

Frequent diners. Always enjoy our experience here whether we sit at the bar or in the dining room. Anyone going for the first time will not be disappointed. Chris is an excellent chef and his menu is always changing. Homemade pasta as well.

If you want to have that oh my yummy goodness moment, get the home made pasta. We all shared bited with one another and everything was exceptional. This place is a find for foodies.

Absolutely delicious food in a convivial atmosphere. Efficient, friendly staff. Love the way the wine list was arranged by number to correlate to the suggested pairings for each dish on the menu--a brilliant idea! The housemade pasta was so light and delicious with perhaps the best red sauce I've ever tasted--obviously slow-cooked with quality ingredients. I can't wait to return!

The food was fantastic as always but the service was horrible. After the appetizers came the waitress ignored us for the next 35-40 minutes til the main course came. I've eaten here at least 50 times and this was my first bad experience.

As usual, the food was great. The servers were very nice but they brought the wrong orders to both our table and the neighboring table. Also, they charged us for stuff we didn't order, but fixed everything quickly. They need to get a little more organized.

Our reservation was for 7. We were running 10 minutes late and called to let them know. When we arrived our table was not ready and it wouldn't be ready for a while. We were then told that we could have a high-top table near the bar and the hostess stand or wait 30 minutes of longer for a table upstairs. We took the high top table, but the seats were uncomfortable and the bar area was noisy. We were very disppointed. The food was good, but were expecting sensational. One member of our party ordered the special 3-course dinner (expensive) and they ran out of the dessert that was part of the special. Then he was given 1 min to decide on one of the other desserts because there were only 2 of those left. The red sauce was too peppery.

Usually, the food a Rovezzi's is outstanding, on this particular night, however, it was not. I strongly suspect the food my wife and i received was reheated leftovers from the previous night, and we did not receive the same generous, mouthwatering portions we usually do. The wait staff, on the other hand, was just as accommodating and inviting as ever. I must admit that this experience was the exception rather than the rule, but all the same, we have been here numerous times, and only on one other occasion have been this disappointed.

Night off sharing fried calarmi and blackened scallap severed over lobster bisque both of which were very good. Was VERY surprised that for $12 there were only two scallops on the plate. Good but pricey compared to the HUGE portion of calarmi. Wife ordered the LISTED fillet special with crispy onions. Something else showed up at the table and was told that someone had "failed" to change the menu and sorry. They did after a few minutes bring over the onions. Chicken parmigian was a two piece portion with one piece overdone and the other perfect. Deserae our server was pleasant and did a nice job of taken care of someone elses mistake. They offered us desert on them to take care of the memu mixup. Overall a nice night, thanks

We've been to Rovezzi's many times and always love it. This visit our server was rather slow - he didn't take our drink order until after he had taken our dinner order, we waited about 20minutes for the check, etc, but he was efficient other than being slow. It wasn't a negative thing, but it was noticed by everyone in our party. I still highly recommend Rovezzi's and look forward to my next visit!

Was very satisfied with the food- it was, and always is excellent. The ambiance, however- not so much. The group across from us was quite loud, and it definitly detracted from what would have otherwise been an outstanding meal. If you are looking for a nice quiet, romantic dining experience, try going when they are not really busy.

Our son had recommended Rovezzi's, so we took advantage of the Groupon special and we happy we did. The menu was quite varied, but not the 4 page menu we see at other places. There was also a chef's choice page with 3 additional choices. I don't think you'd go wrong with any of the choices. My husband had the filet mignon and rock shrimp and I had the layered eggplant, chicken, spinach and cheese. They had Italian names, but I can't remember them. Everything was delicious, including the house salad, which was simple but elegant at the same time. The wait staff was quite attentive and friendly. I would definitely go back. We live in Leominster, MA, so it was an hour drive, but well worth the trip.

This was our 2nd time dining here as a couple and won't be our last. We've been greeted promptly, seated promptly and waited on promptly both times. All the employees are upbeat, friendly and knowledgeable. The filet mignon is the best we've ever had. Salads are crispy & fresh. Really an all around fabulous experience making our night out great. And last, but not least, the wines are delicious and the menu has pairing suggestions for each meal. Love it here.

We were disappointed with the location of our table it was a room next to the bar and across from the kitchen. We would have preferred a table upstairs. Would return because the food was very good,but would call to make reservation so we could request where we would like to have our table.

As always, Rovezzi's never disappoints with their selection of food, the appearance of the food and o course the taste. Their food is exceptional and the service always goes above and beyond and are extremely nice. They even called to see if we were still coming amongst a huge snow storm we had just received. Even though we were late for our reservations because of the storm, they were very accomodating.
