Our favorite in the area

Can't beat the food and setting. Excellent fare, outdoor seating on a terrace next to a garden and on a hilltop with a magnificent view. Reservations recommended. Try to local wines from Montecarlo.

We've eaten at this very smart restaurant 3 times in the past. This time we chose the tasting menu for fish, which we also had 2 years ago. While the food was still wonderful, there were 2 pasta dishes one after the other, which was rather too filling. If was a very busy evening, being a public holiday, and the... More

I took some guests to this restaurant from Pisa as we had a limited choice on a Monday night and it had been strongly recommended. It was well worth the forty five minute drive and the restaurant was simply superb in every way. We were greeted warmly, welcomed by the proprietor chef who told us that he had fresh fish... More

The waitress speaks excellent English and offered to have the chef make a pasta aglio, olio e peperoncini as starter per request. The fish is excellent - I recommend both the tuna and salt encrusted sea bass. The crispy shrimp appetizer also got high marks. The white wine is from their own vineyard. This is an upscale cloth napkin and... More

A little hard to find, just outside the walls of Montevallo but a true fine dining experience. We had lunch on a Sunday and the restaurant was full of local families with impeccably behaved young children. Not a place to eat in a hurry -service is measured and relaxed. Food beautifully presented and delicious. Room has spectacular views over the... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance after we found our first choice (Osteria Del Vento, via TA) was closed and being rudely told they were full by another restaurant (Trattoria Di Montecarlo). So thinking our luck was out we wandered down to the end of the cobbled road to what looked like just a car park. But at the... More

My wife and I had lunch here on one of the last days of our most recent holiday in Tuscany. We'd never eaten here before, but as we'd had other good meals in Monte Carlo, we thought we'd give it a try - especially as we really wanted to have a fine dining meal for a change. The restaurant is... More

New Years eve dinner was spoiled by observing one of the chefs, with a stinking cold, blowing and wiping his nose and immediately after handling the food. Disgusting!!! We complained to the owner, who was apologetic, but not enough to offer any discount. That you can have a restaurant at this level and employ staff with no concept of hygiene... More

The great quality and hospitality is unbelievable and only exists in the Italian environment " alla campagna". This restaurant deserves Michelin awards. That is for sure. The chef is so dedicated and his crew is of a high quality

This restaurant deserves a Michelin star for the quality for the meal, the attention paid to service and it's location. A find while on a visit to Montecarlo for lunch we went back the next day for dinner for my husband's birthday. Wait staff in tuxedos is always daunting, but they did not hover, just were there when they anticipated... More
