Reviews from Worcester Foodies VII

It is the goal of Worcester Foodies to eat everything that Worcester restaurants cook and review it for you! Who are we to "rate" places? Instead of rating restaurants, we eat a lot, write about it all, and let you decide what dish you should try! At Worcester Foodies VII the hungry group sat down at Ziti's Italian Trattoria and this is what they had!

Rotini Special

Rotelli Special 2

As the name suggests (name derives from the Italian for twists) this dish was overflowing with plump twisted pasta drenched with a pink sauce and decorated, for flavor and color, with fresh basil, scallops, spinach, and shrimp. The pasta, unlike most varieties, has a purpose beyond flavor. The rotini noodle truly absorbs the flavors and […]

Eggplant Parmigiana

Eggplant Parmigiana

I chose my dinner from the special Worcester Restaurant Week Menu that Ziti’s had prepared. As my first dish I ordered the Antipasto, my main course was Eggplant Parmigiana and my final course was a Cannoli. Before my first dish arrived, we enjoyed some wonderful, “crusty on the outside, warm and soft on the inside” bread […]

Risotto Scallopini

Risotto Scallopini

Whenever I am at an Italian restaurant I always check to see if they have risotto on the menu –one of my favorite Italian dishes.  So I was very happy to see risotto scallopini as a special of the night. Most places make their risotto by adding cream to shorten the time to make the […]

Chicken Marsala

Chicken Marsala

The portion size was bigger than expected; big enough for the whole family. The taste of the seasoning was OK, not too greasy, but the chicken was tender and the pasta was good.  However, the mushrooms seemed to be from out of a can – a little disappointing.  The presentation could be a little more […]

Lobster Ravioli

Lobster Ravioli

I decided to order off the Restaurant Week menu that Ziti’s had, thinking that it would give me the best selection and would be the best representation of what the restaurant had to offer. To start my meal off, I ordered the eggplant rollatini, which was a pan fried eggplant filled with ricotta, prosciutto and […]

Ravioli in Spinach Cream Sauce

Ravioli in Spinach Cream Sauce

A generous helping of large, fresh ravioli swimming in a thick, well-blended spinach cream sauce. (I loved the sauce so much I was tempted to eat it by the spoonful.) I recommend pairing this dish with the Italian Antipasto Salad for a more balanced and varied meal. (The fresh prosciutto, soppreseta, mozzarella, tomatoes, roasted red […]

Oscar’s Special

Oscar's Special

I decided to go with Oscar’s Special, which included chicken, shrimp, spinach, prosciutto, mozzarella and a side pasta. The first thing you could taste from the dish was the sauce, it was very rich and creamy. All of the meat and seafood was cooked just right. However, I did have trouble with the shrimps due […]

Eggplant Ravioli with Oil & Garlic Sauce

Eggplant Ravioli with Oil & Garlic Sauce

My anticipation kept rising as I waited for my meal to arrive as the portions served to those around me were ginormous.  The woman sitting to my right had a portion of ziti large enough to serve a family of four, which made me very happy as that woman is my wife, and I knew […]
