Mere E Monti is hidden in a residential neighborhood of Worcester. Don't let that dissuade you from visiting this great Italian restaurant. We've visited a number of times with different guests and we are always concerned we have overhyped this restaurant, but this restaurant never...fails to meet or exceed our expectations. The Polenta Con Funghi was an excellent appetizer, the mushrooms were very tasty and the polenta so moist. The Beets and Field Greens salad was ample, fresh and delicious. We sampled the Frutti di Mare and the Gnocchi Alessia as entrees. Each was good size, and had excellent flavor. Both included homemade pasta that was distinctive, specifically the Frutti Di Mare homemade pasta made with cheese. The bread pudding was more than we needed, but we couldn't resist and it didn't disappoint. Finally, the atmosphere was cozy and the service excellent. Don't miss this great restaurant.More

Well... maybe not so secret anymore with so many great reviews. Since discovering Mare Monti years ago we've dined here no less than 50 times and have never been disappointed. Our best advice - call ahead since seating capacity has been temporarily reduced due to...the pandemic, and always try the specials if one catches your eye. There is a lot of great food in Worcester, this is without question some of the best.More

Ordered take out from Monti Mare and it was delicious. The veal was tender, salmon was delicious, alfredo was the best. Curbside pickup was right there for me. Miss the ambiance of the restaurant but the food is still superior. Thank you!

They had someone waiting outside as we arrived to get our order. Very thoughtful and friendly. I had the tuna and my wife had the ravioli [lobster] both were excellent. We've eaten in this restaurant many times and this food was almost as good as...sitting in the restaurant. Highly recommend themMore

We’ve been a half a dozen times now with our group of friends. We ALL are in agreement that this is the very best Italian dining. Yep, better than the North End. Fresh, fragrant, good sized portions of perfectly crafted classic and unique dishes. Service...has been very good...on an extremely busy night, it was a bit hectic..but hey, we just chilled and enjoyed the cheery atmosphere. I could list all the amazing food I’ve tried...but honestly...everything I’ve tasted has been so delicious. The very best.More

Second visit with work colleagues, and it hit the mark again! Service is smooth and friendly. Dining room is intimate but not stuffy. Food is fresh and delicious. Menu covers a lot of territory and the wine list is decent. Family run, tightly run ship.

We had some relatives come down from Canada. The atomoshere of the restaurant was excellent. The staff was excellent. I chose my favorite veal parmigiana and pasta. The pasta is homemade. I thought the gravy was awesome. The veal was very tender and well breaded....I would definitely go back again.More
