Restaurants

Along Grafton Street on the north side of the neighborhood and Ballard Street to the west, chain restaurants, diners and pubs make dining out or grabbing a drink a simple task.

To thoroughly enjoy an evening out, go to Paesano Pizzeria. The innovative recipes used to create these pizzas make them different from anything found at a typical pizzeria. Try the Nutella pizza with fresh strawberries or a pie smothered in sauce and fries. A large specialty pizza costs around $15 to $16, and you can bring in your own bottle of wine.

When you have a sweet tooth, walk into one of the best bakeries around, Wholly Cannoli. Choose from a wide array of cannolis, or snack on cupcakes, cakes, pies and many other sweet treats. Sit down at one of the outdoor patio sets, or keep warm inside the large bakery. This establishment also serve espresso, calzones and sandwiches for when you need a quick pick-me-up paired with a heartier meal.

When you crave hearty but flavorful and complex Italian fare, check out the Mare E Monti Trattoria. Known for its great service, this restaurant dishes up classics, such as Vitello Vincenzo and Merluzzo a Forno, as well as a range of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. It also boasts a bar and a club-like area.

Along the SW Cutoff, the entertainment consists of clubs, pubs and other facilities geared towards the night owls. KasBar, a bar and grill featuring live music on weekends and pool every night of the week, tends to be a local favorite. The sports bar feel and affordable beer make it a relaxing stop at the end of the day. For a louder livelier atmosphere, head 10 minutes northwest to downtown Worcester, where bars and clubs can be found around every block.

Nowadays, the area has become more urbanized, but still provides residential areas near to the major cities at lower costs.
