After we were seated, for a Saturday evening dinner (with reservations), no one came to our table (and we couldn't find anybody) so we went to the bar to get our own drinks. Finally, after about 40 minutes, we got a waitress (who I felt bad for frankly, it wasn't her table and she was overwhelmed with tables) and placed... More

Yes! Yes! And again, I say yes! Excellent venue for a wedding or any other large/private gathering. Last Sunday, I had my wedding reception at Viva Bene. From the moment we inquired about the venue for our event to the moment we left for the evening, my husband and I cannot be happier with the venue, the food, the parking,... More

After an event we walked to this nearby restaurant. Inside we approached the hostess stand and waited quite awhile before anyone came. Then we were seated at a booth and waited awhile for someone to come to the table. Almost left it was so long. Finally I got ones attention. He took our order and it came out soon but... More

We were looking forward to a night out, and we returned to Viva Bene. There was only one other group there on a quiet Tuesday in Worcester, so it felt like we had the place too ourselves. My girl had the chicken skewers and I got the shrimp scampi. Plenty of shrimp over pasta! Good food, good service...once again.

Stopped by for a few drinks before a concert. was able to get 2 bar seats after a short wait. unfortunately it took about 10 minutes for one of the 3 bartenders to take our order. bartenders were friendly when you had their attention and drinks were pretty strong and good. second round came a bit faster. drinks were reasonably...

I decided to try this restaurant again as the food was below average the first time I dined. The meatballs tasted very odd and the Chicken Parmesan appeared to be from frozen chicken. My second visit, I asked for a glass of wine but had to send it back because it was stale (smelled like vinegar). The server kindly opened... More

Sadly I have been taken here for dinner too many times and my food is always mediocre at best. Decor feels somewhat tired but the staff have always been pleasant. The place can handle crowds so large parties will often dine here because they can bee accommodated.

Our server was really nice but the food isn't really Italian as one might think it's Italian with a Mediterranean twist which I am not sure what that was supposed to mean but I had the Gorgonzola linguini and got angel hair in an oddly tasting cheese sauce. My husband wasn't thrilled either with his meal. It was edible but... More

We recently visited this restaurant which houses Club Symply Fargone (at Viva Bene) for a concert by legendary folk singer Jonathan Edwards. The concert was fantastic!!! Our party sat at the bar before the show eating light with just soup, salad & bread. One of our friends had the shrimp cocktail. The bartenders service was good and it appears they... More
