The promised combinations were far more interesting on the menu than on the pallet: the pasta, the meat, and the stuffing were all too similar in texture.
The Seafood Calabrese from Dino’s was huge; unfortunately, the flavor was not.
The crust on Dino’s Vesuvius Pizza was very thick, and, overall, it was a good pizza for my mature pizza palate.
I can honestly say that the meat lasagna from Dino’s in Worcester is something I would come back for.
The portion from Dino’s in Worcester was enormous, but I would rather have had less food with a more consistent sauce and a better ratio of fresh seafood.
The hot summer day lent itself to enjoy a small appetizer pizza and the Italian Antipasto from Dino’s on Lord Street in Worcester, MA.
Italian at an Italian restaurant? I went with the sirloin steak and Caesar salad from Dino’s Ristorante Italiano on Lord Street in Worcester.
I chose Dino’s Veal Soprano: veal sautéed and topped with prosciutto, Fontana cheese and fresh sage in a sweet, light tomato sauce with leeks and tomatoes.
The ingredients in Dino’s veal cutlet parmigiana were there to make this an outstanding dish, but it just seemed to lack some finesse and seasoning.
After some discussion I decided on a spicy Chicken Parmigiana from Dino’s, which is my “go-to” dish having enjoyed it at many of Worcester’s restaurants.
Give me some spice and you made my day; the “The Green Chili” burger from The Fix on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester was what I was going to be having.
A vegetarian option from The Fix: Seared tuna, spicy kimchi, sesame chips, Sriracha aioli, sweet soy, on a sesame roll. I loved this non-burger, burger.

For good measure (and to add a little health to this burger) I opted to add avocado. The burger was a well prepared perfectly cooked top quality hamburger.
The Classic Burger from The Fix was perfect: the avocado was fresh and plentiful, and the combo of gouda, avocado and bacon on a pretzel bun was amazing.
The Fix on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester, MA offers unique, artisan burgers, including the Chef’s special, Lamb Burger.
A beef patty served on a brioche roll, with sautéed mushrooms, grilled onions, arugula, provolone cheese and truffle mayo; this was no ordinary burger.
The crunch of the bacon was a great counterpoint to the soft texture of the burger, and its the smoky flavor was just enough to peek through the BBQ sauce.
The Fix’s very appropriately named, “Classic Burger,” is without exaggeration, the best burger I’ve ever tasted anywhere, anytime, period!
Skip your vegetables and go for red meat; the Pork Belly Burger, Crunchy Burger, are to die for, whereas the veggie burger was not my favorite from The Fix.
The Fix’s take on a salad: a huge classic burger, grilled perfectly, on top of an iceberg lettuce wheel, finished with soft Brioche roll croutons.
I chose The Fix’s house grind combination for my burger with a focaccia roll, blue cheese and crispy fried prosciutto served with a side of veggie fries.
My first bite from Livia’s Dish in Worcester was a tender, moist taste of pounded chicken breast; needless to say, it was so good I ate the entire dish!
Whenever I see lamb on the menu of a restaurant like Livia’s Dish, I channel my inner Greek and assume the divine intervention made the decision for me.
What makes fish tacos are the generous accompaniments – in the case of Livia’s Dish’s is the nice spicy chipotle aioli and spicy cilantro slaw.
The burger from Livia’s Dish was juicy! The bacon and chipotle sauce added flavor and the shoestring fries were just how I like them!
I decided on Livia’s Dish: fettuccine tossed with fresh parmesan, parsley, butter and asparagus, topped with a perfectly poached egg.
The shrimp scampi from Livia’s Dish was so tender and the sauce so flavorful that I ate until I regretted it. Then I smiled and decided it was worth it.
I was pleased to see my meal from Livia’s Dish arrive overflowing with fresh mixed greens, chopped peppers, ripe tomatoes, and huge piece of grilled salmon.
The Chicken Vegetable Stack from Livia’s Dish was an excellent meal; everything tasted great individually and really worked together nicely.
The presentation of the bolognese from Livia’s Dish in Worcester included linguine, meat sauce, a rich balsamic reduction drizzle and with parmesan cheese.
The lamb shank was incredibly tender and flavorful, and served with my choice of sautéed spinach and roasted potatoes. Needless to say, I cleaned my plate!
Rosalina’s Kitchen on Hamilton Street in Worcester has an atmosphere and menu that brings together authentic meals with a neighborhood energy.
When my dish arrived, two large, lightly breaded chicken breasts topped with mozzarella cheese sat atop a generous portion of al dente pasta. The breading was flavorful with a hint of fresh basil and the chicken was cooked to perfection, crispy on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. The homemade sauce had the heat I had asked for but also was rich in traditional flavor.
