We went mid week so the restaurant was quiet, which given how good the food is was surprising. Places like this should be busier than this, the food is that good and a great price. This was some of the best Italian food we have had outside of Italy. As the food is fresh cooked you can get it with... More

You could be in a typical Italian restaurant, in Italy, including the Mama and Papa. Food and atmosphere excellent and a lot cheaper than going all the way to Italy.

Looks can be deceiving and in this case it certainly is. This cafe/ restaurant is a little jem. If you like Italian food then this one is for you. The food is cooked while you wait so don't expect to be in and out in a short time but I can say it is well worth the wait. The cheesecake... More

I went there for the first time last night with my partner. I have to say it was the best Italian meal we've eaten outside of Italy!!! The service was fantastic and the food was amazing. Will definitely be visiting again. A hidden gem of a restaurant. If you are wondering whether to pay a visit, don't hesitate. You won't... More

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
