Filetto di Soglio alla Francese

I recently visited Nuovo Restaurant for the first time and my initial impression was positive. The atmosphere was on the formal side (especially for Shrewsbury Street) yet very pleasant, friendly, and inviting. It seemed like we were seated for a very long time before the main course finally arrived, but that may have been due to the…

Bisteca di Manza

The presentation of the Bisteca di Manza from Nuovo Restaurant was artful, but at first appearance it seems to be a meager portion (it’s not – the food is more than enough, this is just a trick of the oversized plates). The steak was tender, juicy, and grilled masterfully—although it was lacking the intense flavors that I…

Porchetta alla Griglia

This was my first time to Nuovo Restaurant and I was looking forward to trying it for myself after hearing and reading mixed reviews.  The building has always intrigued me with its windows that open to the sidewalk, making it an inviting option for warm days.  On this Tuesday evening the restaurant was quiet (I think our group was the…

Lasagna Brodetto

It had been a while since I last visited Nuovo Restaurant, but upon I was reminded about the trendy atmosphere combined with a rustic nostalgia of exposed brick that made it very comfortable. Before the first course was served, we were brought bread with a garlic yogurt sauce and oil and seasonings. Both of these…

Filet Napoleon

There was a defining moment in my dining experience at Nuovo Restaurant, the moment when I knew that I had one of the best waiters in Worcester.  It was the moment I took the first bite of my entrée, the entrée that without hesitation he recommended.   It was the moment when I stopped hearing my dinner…

Popette Alla Grillia

I’d describe Nuovo Restaurant‘s menu as Italian with strong Middle Eastern flare beginning with warm rolls when you sit down served with Mediterranean spices in oil and a lemony garlic yogurt sauce. This was a REALLY great way to start a meal. The yogurt ‘sauce’ is the same that came with my meal and is better…

Scaloppine alla Oscar

Please note there are multiple reviews: I began my meal at Nuovo Restaurant with a Caesar Salad made with romaine hearts, homemade croutons and homemade creamy Caesar dressing. It was a generous salad and the greens were very fresh. The dressing was very good but not a creamy as one would expect from the menu. The…

Parpadelle a’Matriciana

Being my first time at Nuovo Restaurant on Shrewsbury Street, I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I went in with an open mind. Upon entering I was greeted with chic designs and a dimly lit dining room with well dressed tables and an inviting environment. When we finally got to our meals, we had the choice…

Nuovo’s Linguine alla Carbonara

It’s easy to forget that many of the small restaurants in Worcester are truly family run. You won’t forget this when you dine at Nuovo Restaurant on Shrewsbury Street. Husband and wife duo, Loreta and Aleksander Gjonca, go the extra mile in not only making sure that the restaurants patrons are taken care of, but they are actually…
