"We had a very nice meal at Gina La Fornarina. Service is quick and efficient. Terrific veal-and-beef meatballs. But next time I will be sure to order the home-made pasta. I had a sample and it was also terrific. Wine list is nothing special, but you aren't paying an arm and a leg either.
And do use OpenTable as this place fills up quickly around dinner time.

"Another nice meal at People's Kitchen. The price fixe is quite a bargain. Lamb Meatballs had a hint of asian spice for a deeper flavor. Pan roasted duck was wonderful, but the winner was Peanut Butter Creme Brulee, served with slices of banana and bacon.
I must report that the service was not what I was used to. Perhaps it was the table of 16 30-something men that threw off the waitstaff, but it took 40 minutes from the time our entree dishes were cleared to until we got in the car. This was not us lingering over dessert & coffee, but a lengthy delay in getting our dessert (one of which was wrong, but quickly corrected), settling our bill and waiting for the valet to bring up the car.
a quibble but not enough to keep us away."

Bocado Tapas Wine Bar Modern. Chic, Bold, Sexy Bocado has brought the modern, big city atmosphere to the Worcester dining scene. A journey of tastes and flavor inspired by Mediterranean Cuisine served through a savory mix of tapas plates and extensive wine flights.

"this was our third visit to Bocado and have enjoyed it each time. Altho we have enjoyed it on previous visits, this time we skipped the combination 'platos' and made our own individual selection for both charcuterie and tapas dishes. in both cases the food and presentation have been a total treat. Even something as familiar as fried calamari are notable here as there are no tentacles, mini lamb chops are thin but still have a pink center and bacon-wrapped scallops are crispy outside, tender inside. Also a lively bar scene and an wide mix of clientele. Great place!"

Romaine's is an American bistro cuisine featuring wood-grilled and roasted entrees. Executive Chef-Owner Richard Romaine's commitment to fresh and local ingredients is showcased in a Southern influenced menu. A big city feel without the attitude and prices.

"Very nice. they seemed to have completed the transformation from Italian to 'wood-fired grill'. The menu was not lengthy but there was certainly enough choices for our table of 4. Wine list is also not lengthy but prices range from $30 - almost $200, so there's something at every price range. The duck was plentiful and crispy and the rosemary-Parmesan fries were thin cut (just the way I like them!)"

"I feel that we visit here more often than anywhere else in the area and I'm running out of ways to say: We really like it here. Interesting menu choices and old favorites, plus there is always a bargain or two to be found on the wine list. And only 15 minutes frm home. How can you beat that?"
