I love Nuovo for the food and th service. Recently however, the dining room seems overly crowded and the tables we always seem to get are to small to hold most of what we ordered. I wish there could be more space between the tables and more space on the tables so it didnt feel so cramped. It takes away from the intimacy of special dinners.

We had a group of eight for Restaurant Week. All of the dishes were good. I wasn't impressed with the appetizer choices but the entrée choices were excellent and we appreciated that the desert was optional. The server was friendly and helpful. I would go back again.

The waitstaff were very nice. The server we had informed us of the specials. I had the Napoleon filet which was fabulous. The risotto with it was perfect. My husband had the veal parmigiana and the only thing he didn’t care for was the extra charge of $4.00 for the ravioli side. He didn’t realize it was extra when he chose it over the penne side. Anyway, I would go back for dinner. The food was very good.

We had a reservation for a table and while waiting at the bar area two seats opened up at the bar. We liked the bartender so we stayed at the bar and had a great time. Highly recommend!

I have never been disappointed by the food at Nuovo. The chef is outstanding, and the menu is interesting. The wait people are always polite, and they check back to see if you need anything from them, even when it is very busy. I loved the lights that used to decorate the front window, but by Valentine's Day they were gone. A pianist was playing relaxing music, though, so that was very nice. My only suggestion is to put the lights back up.

Nuovo serves very good standard Italian fare, as well as tasty special dishes. Everything was well-prepared and flavorful, but not hot enough the the first time around. Excellent Caesar salad, tender chicken dishes. Server was outstanding: attentive and friendly. Atmosphere was pleasant and comfortable.

Quiet corner table in the bar area for a birthday dinner. Slightly above average experience and meals. Drinks were weak and pricey. Service was friendly, but not the greeter. Worcester has many fine choices to dine. This one falls in the top 30% in our opinion.

We were seated in the small dining room out front, and were concerned because we were right next to the keyboard player…..we did not have to worry! The music and ambience were perfect for a quiet romantic dinner for two. Service was perfectly paced - the scallops and ravioli was the perfect sized portion and my husband was totally happy with his cioppino. The piano player mixed up the music - classical, jazz, and popular stuff. We have been here several times and have not been disappointed by the food or service.

Traditional Italians-American favorites and great value for the quality. The red sauce was a little sweet for me but I understand that style (my aunt made a sauce like that). Still, quite fresh tasting and excellent texture. I really like the Chobani salad with all its fresh vegetables in a vinaigrette. Loved the meatballs too, in a creamy red ricotta and tomato sauce. Much recommended—will come back too.

Great service and atmosphere! 3 of our 4 meals were absolutely outstanding, and the one meal that was a little iffy wasn't awful, just wasn't good. The waitress and manager were both very apologetic, and they promptly took that meal off our bill. We've always had a great experience here and will definitely be back.

Our party of four was seated promptly and the waitress, with her trainee, came over to our table immediately. She and her trainee were very pleasant and took our orders for drinks. After delivering the drinks in an expedient manner, she took our orders. Everyone was pleased with their meals. However, my rib eye steak was not as tender as I expected for the price of $29.00. However, next time, I will order something other than rib eye steak.
