This place has a great quirky charm and the food is very good. They are BYOB. The homemade bread is heavenly and the pasta always fresh. Everyone from the waitstaff to the cooks are very friendly. The hours are limited, they close at 9 on weekends and are only open for dinner Wednesday-Saturday.

Been there a few times and never had a bad meal. First time I was in there I thought to myself this is going to be interesting. The place is a little small, but let me tell you, they make up for it. Meals are very well proportioned, good selection and always very tasty. Very good prices.

We used to love Mac's, then we fell out of love, then we loved it again. Now, we are ready for a divorce. We tried to have dinner here on a Saturday night and arrived at about 6:30. It was a warm summer's night and Worcester was pretty quiet... we had no trouble getting a table. Unfortunately, as the waitress seated us, she also informed us that they were out of both fish and eggplant.

Since we are both vegetarians, that left us with a pretty limited choice, particularly since Mac's has a limited menu and I am also allergic to mollusks. In fact, it meant that we had no choice but to leave. The waitress told us that we could have any of the meat items without the meat... in other words.... plain pasta.... which was not really a choice.

There are a lot of people who don't eat meat, and if a restaurant wants to have them as customers, they need to make sure they have some items on the menu that they can eat.
