This is a lovely family run resturant. It isnt a huge place so I'd recommend booking at weekends to avoid disappointment. The food is amazing and we will Def be going back with family and friends. You do have to wait a little for your food. Though it really is well worth the wait, plus I like knowing it is... More

Visited on a Friday evening. Table booked for 7.30pm - no one else there when we arrived! Ordered drinks (hubby saw board adverisig bottles of peroni - no price. No wonder, when the bill came £4.95!!). We ordered our food which, to be fair, was ok. Freshly cooked, & nicely tasting - it is the ambience of the place we... More

We have visited Montanaro's several times and generally have different meals on each visit. Starters, main courses and sweets have all been lovely. The food is freshly cooked (so don't expect fast food) and is really tasty. The wine and drinks are also reasonably priced. The tables are nicely set up with candles, etc. for dinner so there is a...

It's a funny little place but the cooking and welcome are superb. Not up market, just Swad. Have visited several times and always enjoyed it.

Went last week to celebrate mine and my partners Anniversary. It was extremely busy with a works christmas party but we were made to feel welcome as soon as we walked in. The food here is consistently excellent. We have ate here numerous times and have never had a bad meal. Occasionally items on the menu may not be available,... More

Stumbled across this small but friendly place needing a winter warmer drink. Lovely Bailey's coffee with Christmas chat from the staff. Menu looks fab. Going to return for a meal there in the New Year.

Visited this wonderful restaurant last night, it was my first visit but definitely not my last. The food was excellent, and the best I've tasted outside of Italy. Couldn't recommend this place enough.
