I have used this restaurant many times and have always had good food and good service. It is small and intimate not like a school dining hall as some italians in the area are. The pate is gorgeous as is the lasagne and the salad. You have to book as its small and they get very busy but its worth... More

We've had a few meals at this little restaurant and it never disappoints. If you like Italian food then you should make a booking and give it a visit. Only downside is the decor could be better as its a bit like a transport cafe and fabric napkins would be an improvement over the paper ones but the food is... More

Visited Montanaro's on the recommendations from friends and was very pleased. Staff were lovely, friendly and very accommodating. The atmosphere was excellent and made the food even more enjoyable. Excellent selection of wines and specials. Can't wait for a return visit in my local town.

We can't believe we have waited so long to try Montanaro's. It had been recommended to us many times before and we finally tried it for ourselves. We were not disappointed. The staff are simply wonderful - friendly, attentive & honest. The restaurant is small and intimate and you are made to feel so welcome. Nothing is too much trouble... More

Lina and her team are so friendly, welcoming and attentive to your every need. The food is first class with a good choice of starters, mains, deserts and specials. The restaurant is very small, so it is important to book or arrive early. If we fancy an Italian and some good company in authentic Italian surroundings, then Montanoro's is definitely... More
