Our meals were delicious! My husband said that he had the best steak he has ever had, and that is saying something! The service was spot on; we didn't have to wait too long for our entree and then main meals, our waitress very attentive, professional and pleasant.

Hit one of those evenings when 1st choice was booked out and 2nd choice was booked out, so random choice, hey let's try that place I've walked past a hundred times. And yep, it did not disappoint. Service somewhat inexperienced but very willing and genuine. Simple food, very competently prepared, not a bum note here, and reasonably priced. The wine... More

The only downer about this quaint little restaurant was the lack of customers. This can sometimes be a put off to going into a restaurant....The food was excellent, classic menu, great value. Would highly recommend.

This was a lucky find and on the night we visited there were only three other customers. This,I don't understand. The food is very good with a limited menu but with something from each Italian food type and not over priced. Restaurant is licensed and the wine list is definitely worth a look.(We found a great 2008 McLaren Vale Grenache... More

Authentic Italian. Magnificent. Great food. Risotto duck was superb. Gnocchi was light and flavorsome. Great service under pressure. Well worth it. And value!

We had a our own room upstairs and the food and service was excellent. If you had looked at the restaurant from the outside you would have thought very few people were in this restaurant. It would have been good if the chef had come up to say hello to us as everyone could have thanked him for his excellent... More

We enjoyed our meal and the staff who served us were very good. At our table of 4, we enjoyed both Italian cuisine and more traditional Australian food. We took our own wine, but there was a good wine list. The one caveat we have with Monte Bello is that there appeared to be insufficient staff and they were very... More

At first impression this restaurant looks like couples only because all the tables are for two, however, they also have upstairs, which is were they sent all the larger groups of people. From the moment we sat down, at 5:45pm, people started to pile in all night (we were there for an hour and 45). I lost count of how... More

Went to Monte Bello on a Monday evening when Savoy was closed for renovation. The restaurant was not crowded by my standard but there is only a young lady server managing all the front operation! I am impressed by her systematic and priortising work style. I waited for about 45 minutes before she takes my order and waited for less... More
