Not the One Eleven.
This place was just okay. The food was mediocre, and very over priced. The menu selection was lame at best. This will never compare to the One Eleven so it is a disapointment to have to pay their prices and you can get a better meal at a standard fair Italian place.
Great for Worcester, but cannot compare to North End-Boston.
This is a great Worcester Restaurant. I would suggest this restaurant to business people who are looking for a meeting/meal place. It's a quiet atmosphere. The food has great presentation and service was excellent. However location is, well, for lack of a better word, poopy. Don't eat outside, it's depressing. But... the food was great - for Worcester. This restaurant would never make it in the North End-Boston because it lacks quality.
Doesn't campare to it's sister restaurants..
One Eleven and Sole Proprietor are it's sister restaurants and they are very nice. But this one is like the ugly step sister, they tried to make is upscale but failed. Short staffed and little flavor in the food. Nice set-up but it was empty when we went and after we order our food we realized why. It had little flavor almost as if it came from a can or a box. It was a nice try but an epic fail.
Disappointment to Shrewsbury Street.
Service was poor. Reservations - useless. They should just call it what it is - "call ahead and still wait as long as you have to" - I believe just so that you are forced to drink in the bar - and thus, not notice that the food they serve you isn't even good.
We stood against the wall for over an hour even though we had reservations. Constantly had to keep reminding the server desk we were there. Meals were not brought out together, which is always awkward on a date - and just plain aggravating in general.
I would rather eat at a generic Italian chain like Vinny T's before ever returning here.
