Finally Ate Well at Montanara!

I think it was because I went with my father in law who is an "abitue"... The owner and chef came out and greeted us and asked what we would like to eat. I had a Capellini "filetto" with lobster... Actually very good... Would have asked less liquid sauce, but other than that, it had flavor and... read more

Great atmosphere and service. Order the focaccia for starters. Get there early (7 PM), it gets packed.

I hadn't been to this restaurant in over five years and now I remembered why!! The food is below average and the presentation of the food is terrible, absolute no care in trying to present an image that goes according with their fame. The dinner ware is extremely cheap and I guess goes perfectly with the food and presentation of... More

Incredible italian food, great service, and the wine list, OMG! Don't miss it. Its the best! Looks like a dive from outside, use the valet parking, tough to find a place to park in Las Mercedes.

Possibly the most popular lunch and dinner place in Las Mercedes, but it looks like a dive from outside. Valet parking in front and location makes it safe for both lunch and dinner. Menu is varied and all dishes are popular. You probably have to wait for a table to compete with the regulars but it has a good bar... More

A fine and unpretentous place to taste good italian cuisine. Normally very crowded, and hence if arriving after 12:15 at noon you will need to wait ay least 1 hour for a table, but once you get it you will find good dishes of maybe a trattoria type of italian restaurant, rather than going to an upscale type of place....
