Braised Lamb Shank from Livia's Dish on Main Street in Worcester, MA

I would describe Livia’s Dish as modern Italian with a Mediterranean flair.

The wait staff greeted me as I entered and were friendly. I found the wait staff to be very helpful with explaining the menu and when I asked for suggestions; my server was able to make great suggestions to suit my particular tastes.

Crusty slices of bread with hummus were brought to the table to start our meal.  The bread was excellent and a nice change from the usual bread and oil.

I started with a Caesar salad that I split with my husband. It was a very large salad and with a little bit of protein it could have made for a wonderful meal all by itself.

I ordered the braised lamb shank.  It was a nice size portion. The meat fell away from the bone and was very tender. It is not often I have seen lamb shanks on a menu so when I saw this I had to order it although the Fettuccine Alfredo and the chicken vegetable stack were very tempting.  I was very happy that I ordered the lamb. The meat was incredibly tender and flavorful. The lamb shank was served with my choice of sides and I chose the sautéed spinach and roasted potatoes, both my sides where excellently cooked and seasoned.  I cleaned my plate and enjoyed my meal immensely.  I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys a good meal with a nice family style atmosphere.
