Authentic Italian

Food was nicely done and very generous. I requested a few changes to my dish which were accommodated with no problem. Also came in quite late and were happy to serve. Table settings offer more secluded and cosy areas for groups of 6 or 8. Very enjoyable even as a business traveller eating on own.

Ate here twice because I was staying at a hotel across the street. The first time, the risotto with porcini was very tasty, but I was surprised by the high prices of the salads ($17 each for simple caesar or chopped salad). A plate of mixed berries was $13! So, the next time, I ordered take out of a pasta... More

I had a pleasant lunch with my son late on a Friday afternoon. The place is quiet, the service good, and I liked my sole , simple but perfectly cooked. My son had gnocchi and that also worked out for him. It is not particularly cheap but ok given the location and quality of the food. I'll try dinner next... More

I have been to this restaurant many times for business lunches. The food has always been consistently good, plus the service is always attentive and very efficient. To me this is very important because, if you are trying to efficiently manage your time while also remaining focused on your business agenda, you do not want the distraction of worrying about...

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

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.
