Re-established me as a regular customer

I returned to Dino’s after an almost five-year hiatus because: 1. Sis received gift cards for Christmas and invited me to come along; 2. Carmela’s in Brookfield is now closed; 3. Sis and I felt gypped after the not-so-good experience we had two weeks ago at Mare e Monti; and 3. Sis wanted really... read more

I have heard raves about this place for years. My husband and I went after a funeral. The place is so small- cramped in fact. The decor was what I was expecting, although it could use some updating. The buffet we had was pasta & sauce, meatballs and sausage, chicken, roasted potatoes and salad. Food was ok- some of my... More

Went during the week, around 7pm. Only two tables occupied, but the four parties that came in after us were all seated immediately in front, behind and alongside us. So much for the "dimly lit Italian romantic meal" we were hoping for. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful, which is more than I can say for the person behind... More

Been there for 100 years. (maybe) Good wholesome Italian food. For 2 do the antipasto, (yummy and big) and split a dinner. Plenty for two. Never a bad meal with a bottle of Chianti.

On the way back home from a youth football regional championship in Auburn, I wanted spaghetti. I googled and Dino's popped up. Excellent service from the second we walked in the door. Bread came immediately with homemade bruschetta. So good! Spaghetti and meatballs like Nonna made. Pizza was heavenly. Great family restaurant.

I've been going to Dino's since I was a kid - moved away 15 years ago and a few years back, made an appearance and enjoyed the food. So the other day, I returned yet again. What happened that this place?! The service was horrible and the food was horrible!!!! The meatballs were flavorless and the sauce didn't taste right.... More

As a lifelong Italian American Worcester resident, I hadn't been to Dino's in over 10 years and now I remember why. The food is not good. We started with an antipasto for 4. I must say it wasn't bad tasting but they serve it in an overflowing bowl that's impossible to dish out servings without spilling it all over the... More

I've been going to Dino's for several years. Whether it's been a family gathering, couples dinner, or celebration, they accommodate. Big parties can be in their private room downstairs. Staff are always very attentive and knowledgeable of their menu. The ambiance is soothing and relaxing. The food, as always, tastes great. My favorites are the Baked Haddock, Chicken Parm and...

Waited over 45 minutes for our food. Ordered the chicken marsala and it was very bland. Ordered pizza which was very good. However, was a little upset that the manager didn't think it was important to come over and apologize. Won't be going back there.
