Looking for some place for a Sunday night for a group of 8.. Not fancy. We've eaten at Flying Rhino and liked it - so something along that line, but we'd like to try something new. Thanks for ideas.

    I second the Boynton, but I think the best value in Worcester is Biaggio's on Park Ave, great food, friendly service and pretty cheap. Like 10 bucks for chicken parm and 15 for a VERY nice filet.

      Hi Cindy,

      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!

        Thanks everyone. I'll look through the active diner list.

        I tried calling Rovezzi's - indeed, their phone has been disconnected.

          I really liked Rovezzi's when I was there a few months ago. Large but cozy loft space, big bar, good food, pleasant & accommodating service.

              Really?? When did This happen? Both locations, or only Worcester??
              So sad, but thanks for the update!

                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!
