I know this is probably too late for you, but next time try the Boynton on Highland Street, across from the Sole Proprietor. Similar feel to the Rhino, but with a more complete menu. It's a solid choice.
JP - I actually like the looks of that suggestion. They don't take reservations, and we will be there on what could be a busy night (Sunday of WPI move in week), but I think we'll give it a shot. Thanks!
Rovezzi's in Rutland closed months ago, but the Worcester location closed within the couple of weeks or so (business conditions, they are claiming). The Sturbridge location is still open and according to the owners is doing quite well!
I'm sending you this listing for Worcester, this should give you a good start in finding a place to eat. (http://www.activediner.com/restaurant...) Hope this helps you a little in your quest. Earle Ct.
