This restaurant is by far the best local Italian place in town, great food & atmosphere, excellent service,great food & amazing Bar Pies (pizza). I just love this place, reminds me of a small version of the old European Restaurant in Boston which closed many years ago. You have to try it, a great mom & pop place.

One day a former Worcester resident was talking of his absolute favorite restaurants in the city. His absolute #1 recommendation was this establishment, and for about 5 minutes he raved about the food. So while in the area we decided to try it out. It was... very strange. First, we expected a place that might be a bit more updated,... More

There was 6 of us on a cold night in January. They placed a large table in the middle of the restaurant, in front of the door. I wore my coat the whole time. The pizza, not so good. I live in a small town and our small town pizzeria is better than a city pizzeria. The server was non... More

Had been a a regular at the Wonder Bar in my younger years and always remember it as a great place for a pizza and beer. Although it's been a while, my husband and I thought it would be great to revisit the restaurant, sure it would fill the bill for a nice laid back evening out. Went there on... More

Easily the best pizza in town. Affordable. Don't expect it to be a bar, it's a pizza place. Bring cash.

A little pricey for a place that hasn't spent a dime on paint in 30 years. Don't mind paying just clean it up a little.

A worcester Icon, located in the historic Italian (Shrewsbury St.) section of Worcester. The second Best meatballs I ever tasted only my Mothers are better, She sicilan. The Clam sauce is to die for, and the Pizza is worth the trip. The prices are incredible, very reasonable. We live about 30 miles away, but try to visit at least twice... More

The last time I went to the Wonder Bar in Worcester was when I was pregnant with my son, that was 17 yrs ago. The place hasn't change. It's a little hole in the wall off Shrewsbury Street in Worcester and still did not disappoint. Formica table tops, dark paneling on the walls, a small bar but don't let the... More

This is a small place with a very unique dining experience. They are known for there brick oven pizza which is delivered to your server from a dumb waiter.

A place to people watch and maybe meet someone new - or just bring a friend you haven't seen in a while.
