This restaurant serves excellent food - the pasta is great and the risotto cooked to perfection - it needs to be "croccante" not over cooked (unlike stated in a previous review). We ate there on several occasions and found the host very helpful - certainly a place one can recommend.

The waiter is a little hard of hearing so speak up or you'll end up with the wrong dish. The quality of the food was good but they could have cooked the risotto a little more.

Very friendly service. Starters were good and my pizza was excellent. My wife's chicken was a bit dry and the roast potatoes could have been better. However, my fault for not checking, but when I examined the bill later it contained an unexpected "5 X 1.00" item which I could not rationalised. Had I checked more thoroughly there wouldn't have...

We got to restaurant Il Monte about 840 in the evening. What a pleasant surprise. Although there was only one girl waiting tables she got around to us in a relatively short amount of time. Had a delicious wild boar dish and famous Tuscany Fajouli beans. It was indeed a surprise as the food was tasty and well prepared.

We found this rustic looking place on the road to San Gimignano on the top of a hill, and just thought we would give it a try for a pizza. What a find! Friendly staff made us welcome as the first guests that evening at 6.45pm. The waiters and chefs were taking a break when we arrived but they soon... More

We came here for pizza and they were good. Service was a bit hit and miss but was made up for by the pizza They do take-away too which is handy if self catering.

We were staying close by this restaurant and ate here nearly every night as we did a lot of sightseeing during the day. The staff (two ladies) were really lovely and the best thing about the place was the variety of their menu. We spend many weeks in Italy and were bored of seeing the same thing on the menus...II...

Located on the main road (Nearby free parking is available), the place is nice seat down outside. The prices were fair, and the food was decent - not more than that. We ordered meat and it had a lot of oil in the plate - so if you don't like a lot of oil in the food - request that.... More
