We have been coming to Montanaro's for just over 1 year now and are hooked. We stumbled upon it just after we had moved into the area and were looking for somewhere that offered real Italian homecooked food, (I'm not a fan of the Italian chain style places). Anyway Montanaro's did not disappoint! The owner/chef are a lovely couple who... More

Paid a visit and didn't expect much out of an Italian restaurant in the middle of Swad, but was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the service! I even asked for different pasta in my dish, and the request was happily granted - top notch! Will definitely be going back again and again.

My husband and I went to Montanaro's in August 2014 for our Wedding anniversary. We have been before and decided to return to see if the exceptional food we had last time was a one off or if Montanaro's was always as good. For those who have never been, the restaurant doesn't really look that special to be honest. It... More

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
