Chose this restaurant based on its location near a client we were meeting for lunch. It ended up being a great choice. We got their for a noon reservation and it was fairly quiet, but at around 12:30 it filled up quickly, so definitely make a reservation if heading their for lunch or go early. I thought the food was... More

We were looking for Italian close to our hotel. This place had a table when we wanted one, and we were very pleased with the meal. The chocolate mousse cake was one of the better ones I've ever had. The wait staff were very efficient, friendly and just the right amount of attentive. Wine list had a excellent Barolo at... More

Staff are pleasant but food was tasteless. The roast potatoes tasted like they had been reheated. Other veg were good.

Soft, subtle, excellent food and service. Have visited this restaurant many times and although it's not Little Italy, it's just as good and not as chaotic.

Recent ate a fantastic meal at Montebello! We arrived on a Saturday evening around 6 with no reservation and were seated immediately. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, with nice music. The restaurant is quiet enough to relax and enjoy the meal, and would be appropriate for family and friends or a romantic date. I had the arugula salad with... More

Food was outstanding. Salads and pastas were shared and entrees were too large but appreciated. Atmosphere was conducive to actual conversation. So many restaurants today have moved away from "food" as the focal point and concentrate on atmosphere and music.

When you walk into Montebello's, act like Ray Liotta in Goodfellas...you know, act like you own the place. Reason? This place is really good, and they like having diners who act important! In other words, don't act like a meek tourist! Once you settle in, the waiters will take good care of you, the menu and food will remind you,... More

Popped in for an early dinner with my husband and what a welcome! The food was outstanding, the flavours were so fresh and the sauces were to die for! A great find and have already recommended to our friends.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
