Pappardelle alla bolognese

I was excited to try the new restaurant, Mare e Monti Trattoria, on Wall Street as I had loved their previous restaurant. I started with the Arancini di riso which were 2-3rice balls filled with beef ragu, green peas and a small amount of fontina and parmigiano cheeses which had been lightly breaded and fried…

Merluzzo al forno

Choosing the healthy meal while eating out is not my forte. Cries for indulgence echo throughout my whole being. Chicken, vegetable, or white fish dishes are dull, make-at-home on a Wednesday meals. So I once thought. Apparently, when healthy foods are cooked perfectly and served with a side of savory risotto, they ARE indulgences! The…

Pollo alla Parmigiana

Haven eaten at Mare E Monti Trattoria once before, I was excited to return with our Foodies group to see if my second experience would be as good as my first experience. We were greeted by one of the owners and seated immediately in the large, open dining room. For anyone who remembers the Caffe Espresso…

Lasagne Al Forno

Mare E Monti Trattoria is a great addition to the Worcester dining scene. With anticipation I ordered the Lasagne Al Forno and all I can say is this was a very yummy spin on a classic lasagna. The pasta was layered with fresh ricotta, pasta, meat sauce and the perfect amount of mozzarella cheese. The combination…

Melanzane alla Parmigiana

Pasta…only second to chocolate, is one of my favorite indulgences. But like chocolate, it must be limited in my diet because once I start eating…quite frankly, I can’t stop…especially when it is as delectable as my MELANZANE ALLA PARMIGIANA: Baked eggplant layered with homemade pomodoro sauce, parmigiano and mozzarella cheese served with linguine from Mare E…

Vitello Vincenzo

The term “authentic “ is often tossed around when describing restaurants that serve food typically identified with a certain country, and it is one I find entertainingly subjective.   I’ve seen grown men (with the aid of a beverage or two) argue over what is “authentically Woostah,” having grown up blocks away from each other.  I…

Pollo Giuseppe

Mare E Monti Trattoria is yet another little hidden gem in the hills of Worcester.  Having been to this location prior (different restaurant), I was impressed with the renovations and change in the décor. There is a quaint bar when you first enter and to the left is the main dining area. The staff was welcoming…

Pollo Guisseppi

Nestled between the Grafton Street and Franklin Street areas of Worcester is Wall Street’s Mare E Monti Trattoria. This classic Italian trattoria offers a comfortable dining experience that is a little bit off the beaten path from the Shrewsbury Street dining scene that most people think of when they think Worcester’s Italian food. Yet Mare E…

Gamberi Andrea

Entering Mare E Monti Trattoria on Wall Street, I got the feeling of an intimate rustic atmosphere. A friendly server who pointed us to our table greeted me promptly. My husband and I headed over to join friends who had already arrived. Our table and companions for the evening was quite large with around 14 people. The…
