We wanted takeout to eat in our hotel and were very happy with the food we got at Dino's. We ordered manicotti, which came with a very fresh salad and some bread. They were very large and probably one order would have served us both, especially with dessert. It was a Saturday evening and people were waiting to be seated,... More

My daughter and family took us there with comments about how good it was... it wasn't. The first turn off was the bread, a store bought loaf of Italian without a crispy crust anywhere (think Pepperidge Farm.) Next the butter - frozen. Service was excellent and reasonably fast but the spaghetti and meatballs I had was just so-so. I thought... More

I went to this restaurant with some trepidation as I had never heard of it. It turns out that it has been there for years and it felt it............in very positive ways. It's obvious they have been doing this for awhile. From the gracious host to our exuberant server and everything in between our experience was excellent. Great food served... More

This is our most favorite Italian restaurant - superb cuisine and excellent service. The drinks by David , especially the Bourbon Manhattans, are the best. Jay , David and Jane are most welcoming hosts and always make us feel comfortable.

No need to travel to Boston. Sit at the bar and enjoy some terrific service. Say hi to Dave. The veal is the best I have tried anywhere.

Always have a great meal here and tonight was no exception. Our server, Lorraine, was awesome. We started off with the fried calamari tossed with hot peppers. The batter could have been a little lighter but it was still very good. Our meals came with soup or salad. I opted for a salad, which was fresh & full of cukes,... More

Okay,its been years since we've been there, talking 20 or so. I grew up in Worcester and as a kid use to go there. Well it needs to be brought into the 21st Century. Booths are old, tables are dark, wood paneling, Robert Iriving from the Food Network could turn this restaurant around in a week! One excellent point, the... More

Met for a family get together. My wife and I have been getting the Antipasto and pizza and beer for over 30 years, it is so good I never try anything else. My kids and others always enjoy whatever they get they have a nice variety. Also bread is very good.

Superb entree choices - superior veal dishes. Best Bourbon Manhattans served straight up with the same rocks on the side. Friendly servers and a fun place to have dinner.
