Bello Opticians is a great family owned business. Nick and his son Anthony and daughter Heidi are hard working and customer oriented. It is not your cookie cutter optician. It gets busy in there and at times there is a lot of activity.

I just got Davis Vision, and learned that my former eye doctor (Shewsbury Eye Care- fantastic people!) would no longer be able to take my insurance. So I found Bello through Davis, and since it was close by, I figured I would go there.

Dr. Giovannucci is great. However the service at the opticians needs improvement. The wait is usually a hour and rushed. But I must say they are very good when you get service. I just think they need more staff and need to be better

I have been going to Bello's for six years now and have never had a problem. Everyone in there is always very friendly. Nick the owner has been helping me with my last pair of glasses, there was nothing wrong with them but I wasn't completely happy with them and he went out of his way to make sure I was happy even if it meant getting an entirely different pair of glasses. As long as I live in worcester I will continue to go to Bello opticians. If you are new to the area or just looking for a new place to purchase contacts and lenses you should definitely try bello's. Also the optician Dr. G is great and very personable.

The optical expertise here is unsurpassed. I've been wearing glasses since first grade - so for the last 37 years. When I first got glasses through Bello Opticians nearly 14 years ago, I was amazed at how much better my vision was than ever before. They have continued to provide a high level of service and professionalism to members of my family since then (six of us need serious vision correction.) Thank you ,Nick and company, for all the wonderful years of excellent service and extraordinarily kind attention.

Overpriced. Dr.G is great but the staff is shady. If you have Davis vision make sure they actually use your benfits.. they made me pay and didn't even submit the claim. I ended up paying the full price for everything. Their contact lenses are also very pricy. Don't go hear if you have Davis vision. pick some other place.

My recent experience with Nick Bello was very disappointing. A reviewer mentioned his proficiency in "fitting" glasses: apparently that is what his license or degree is in, because he seems not to know a thing about lenses. Not only were the frames I chose for progressive bifocal lenses not large enough to accommodate them (THEY were supposed to know this, not the customer), the peripheral 'vision' was blurry and of course shouldn't have been. I've been in touch with the appropriate authorities in an attempt to get a refund.

My wife has been going to Nick for over 20 years and when we got married, she turned me on to the BEST optician I've ever dealt with. His forte is fit, you wear your glasses all the time, they must be comfortable and effective; no one is better at this than Nick. We walk in any time and he happily cleans and adjusts our glasses, his service is unparalleled. He's also got a great eye for style, it's come to the point were we just say, "what should we get?" and he helps select frames that look good on our faces and are within our budget. He's flexible. I brought in a pair of sunglasses that I bought in Italy and he made lenses for them with my new prescription. My wife wears one contact lens, he made a pair of glasses with only one correcting lens that she can wear for driving.

Bello Opticians is one of the best service companies we deal with. We like our plumber, we like our realtor, we like our mechanic, but we love Nick.

First, let me say I have no idea what the other person is saying about a cigarette smoke filled building. I'm nearly 100% sure that smoking in a place like that violates Massachusetts law, so, ignore that guy below.

Five years ago I had gotten my frames from Bello's after I graduated high school. Now living in Boston and attending my final year in college, I thought it was time for a style update. I checked out several optometrists in the Boston area, and found prices to be average around $350 to $400 for the frames style I was interested in. I was surprised, as I remembered Bello's being a whole lot cheaper. I called them up, made an appointment, took the commuter Rail to Worcester, and got my eyes tested and picked out a great pair of frames for only $200. For me, FAR worth the trip. To boot, they also gave my old pair an intense power-cleaning while I was there. They looked like new!

Their selection of frames isn't the largest. But you WILL find yourself wandering around from wall to wall looking at all the different kinds they have. Once you start looking intently, the choices seem to multiply.

I had the employees there help me narrow my frame choices down to three, then I chose which one I liked the best of the three. It was a very nice, helpful atmosphere! Lots of bamboo :)

I'm giving it a healthy 4/5 stars because 1) Could use a slightly larger selection of frames, 2) I haven't been to many other optometrists to truly recognize Bello's as outstanding from the rest.

Pros: Close to MBTA Commuter Rail Worcester station. Good pricing compared to Boston locations. Nicely designed office.

Cons: Slightly smaller selection than other locations I walked in on. But better pricing. So it evens out.

I have never seen Nick smoking either. i think that other reviewer was "smokin'" something of his own!
I have had issues with contact lens but that was the manufacturers problem not Bello's.
They were MORE than accomodating to me in replacing them.
I have also gotten eyeglasses from there that I love and get compliments on all the time!
I have had adjustments for free many many times in the 10 years I have been going to Bello's.
I would tell ANYONE to go see for themselves! The place is always busy and the phones always ringing so can all of us customers be wrong?? I don't think so!
I love Dr. G too! He is compassionate and really knows his stuff!

My first visit to Bello Opticians was disappointing because Nick failed to follow my instructions. In truth, this particular instance was not such a big deal, so I decided to overlook it.

A few years later, my wife and I both needed the services of an optician, so I decided to give Nick a second chance. It was a big mistake. My wife was told her first choice wasn't available in her prescription, and I was told the frames I wanted were no longer available. Nick made recommendations which we followed. Regrettably, my wife got stuck with ill-fitting glasses, which prompted me to do some investigating on behalf of my wife and myself. To make a long story short, my wifes prescription was available in the exact style of frame she wanted, and the exact frame I wanted was available in two colors. I canceled my order, but my wife had already received her glasses, so she was stuck with them.

A customers best interest or desires are of no interest to Nick. It doesn't matter that you had a particular style in mind, or whether or not you actually look good in what you'll eventually purchase. Nicks goal is to sell you what ever he has in stock, and he'll say or do whatever it takes to convince you that he has your best interest in mind. Don't you believe it. You will be better served shopping elsewhere.

I've been going to Bello opticians since I was in the third grade. The owner, Nick, was NOT walking around the place with a lit cigarette. You must have been dreaming, or somewhere else. Bello?s policy is to get you the best glasses they can and then to make sure they are fit perfectly to your nose, ears, and eyes. Before they moved from one spot on Shrewsbury street to another, they were very reasonably priced, but due to an upgrade in real estate, they are now competitive instead of the cheapest best glasses place around. The glasses are also much more trendy. If anything breaks on them, like if a pad comes off or a lens pops out, you bring them back and they fix it for you on the spot free of charge. I have bought three pairs of glasses from them. I have worn glasses for 16 years and I have never bought glasses from anyone else. I highly recommend Bello Opticians. My whole family gets glasses from Nick and his staff.

Believe it or not, this place is a true thgrowback to the "Streets of San Francisco" era...or maybe even "Colombo". You wouldn't believe it if you didn't see it for yourselves. When you open the door you are smacked in the face with a cloud of good old fashioned cigarette smoke...just like in the old days! When I was there (briefly) there were three customers waiting for things and they all had small children and two had infants. Real honest to God cigarrette smoke. Then the owner walks by with a lit butt in his mouth!! OK maybe I'm a bit "new fashioned" but I left with the harsh stink of a 70's Italian first communion party. If you go, make sure you bring your eyedrops.
